Linwood Jackson Jr. is an author, poet, and philosopher writing about the definition and the experience of “love.” His inspiration comes from how the Bible defines “love,” that when “loving,” or when “loved,” one is actually edifying, or is being edified. The realization of how the Bible defines “love” completely re-defined how he views and approaches life, causing him to live not like as if it was his last day on earth, but as if with a newly edified breath every single day.
Linwood’s first book, “Perfecting & Reforming Personal Religion,” dives into the concept of the Bible’s definition of love, informing the reader on the need to intimately link their devotional character with the living God’s devotional character. In this book, counsel or advice is given for encouraging the individual to take ownership and responsibility of their devotional experience, calling the reader’s attention to the fact that like as the natural body needs sustenance and exercise, both mental and physical, so also the devotional conversation needs to have its mind exercised on how to maintain its self within the body.
His books definitely push the scope of what is traditionally taught and believed, giving the reader a take on the Bible that is wholly refreshing. With the Bible’s form of “love” being the foundation of his books, he, in order to better explain the philosophy within the Bible, spends time making sense of the theology connected to the Bible and how it actually distracts the individual from grasping the intention behind the Bible’s words.
His books, “Heaven’s Genuine & Counterfeit Minister,” “A Fallen Record: The Christian Transgression,” “A Battle of Hosts: The Controversy of the Sixth Seal,” and “The Bible Sabbath,” assist the reader in making sense of the Bible through the knowledge they already have. These books approach the definition of “love” by looking at what “love” is not, allowing the reader, by presenting the Bible in a way where there Bible is made to explain itself, to find new meaning in what they know. Again, with the exercising of the mind being his goal for his reader, all of his books are tailored to get them deeply meditating on the Bible and on their experience with the Bible for learning how to properly maintain their personal devotional experience.
His book of poetry, “Growth,” and his most recent release, “Justification,” are perfect examples of what Linwood is doing with the platform he is building. He truly believes that “love,” when correctly understood, re-defines the entire living experience, even inspiring thought for achieving a vision of self in its greatest intellectual, moral, industrial, and devotional potential. Linwood sees the Bible’s philosophy as being the missing culture the human being needs in order to reform and edify its natural thoughts and feelings which, in turns, opens up the individual to be the blessing for their age, and for succeeding generations, that they are meant to be.
