"I do not believe the call is to "Do What Jesus Did, the call is to Do What YOU Do. To be fully self actualized, like he (Jesus) was."
"This shocks pious minds"
"I started teaching this (when I got back to Houston from the seminary) and lo and behold I almost got run out of town"
".. No. I do believe in providence, it's just that too often I see people going to providence without realizing that we are created in the image of God. And to be creative is how we are most like Jesus"
Bradshaw repeats a quote about codependent self deprecation:
"For worms to harbor such thoughts, not for beings made in the image of God!"
Bradshaw on the topic of N.L.P and prayer:
"What I tell people in counseling is that if they have religious background, I tell them to use this... Frequently I ask people to 'go to a resource that they have within themselves', and they say they don't have one (that they trust), I tell em to get God the Father and include that in a reframing, include that in a collapse anchor. This is a resource that they can go to. And this is very powerful stuff."
"Greater things that I did you'll do"
