Darren Twa has developed the teaching and theology about value systems and relationships that I write about at this website. Initially the material was available only in Sunday message audio form.

Darren has authored several books (all available on his website):

  • God's Value System
  • Emotions: Revealing our Values
  • Relationship and ValueSystems

Please read his books. They are better than what I have been able to present here, and more comprehensive.

Darren is pastor at Life Fellowship church.

 

Quotes from Darren Twa

Darren repeatedly uses simple phrases as teaching instruments. The theology from his work simplifies many aspects of Christianity and yet is extremely practical. These quotes which I have used in my writing are original to him.

  • "God's value system is sacrificial love for the benefit of others."
  • "God's value system most looks like Jesus on the cross."
  • "All theology is relational."
  • "All relationships are based on common value systems."
  • "All conflicts in relationship are conflicts over value system."
  • "Sin is choosing a value system."
  • "We know that Jesus' Kingdom was not an earthly kingdom because John the Baptist didn't have a shovel."
  • "The Gospel is simple. There is a part we believe and a part we do. Everything else is tradition and interpretation."
  • "It is better to be good than to satisfy bodily appetites (have a full tummy), to have people like you (be adored), or to have an earthly kingdom: (power, wealth, control)."
  • "God's kingdom has one rule - sacrificial love for the benefit of others. And if you break the rule, the consequence is that you are forgiven."

Some of these quotes may seem startling. Please read his material or material I have written at this website to understand what they mean.
