I. What is God saying?
And God said, “Let there be light, and there was light…”
- God speaks - and there is light. Stars. A sun. The moon.
And God said, Let us make human beings in our image...so God created human beings in His own image…
- God speaks - and there are human beings.
Understand this: we are both tiny and massive. We are nothing more than molded clay given breath, but we are nothing less than divine self-portraits, huffing and puffing along mountain ranges of epic narrative arcs prepared for us by the Infinite Word Himself. Swell with pride and gratitude, for you are tiny and given much. You are as spoken by God as the stars.
- ND Wilson
"From now on, what will permit man to approach the divine, to know it and to contemplate it, belongs to a quite different order. What will count here, above all, is no longer intelligence but trust in the word of a man, the Man-God, Christ, who claims to be the son of God, the logos incarnate…"
- Luc Ferry, A Brief History of Thought
"If there is a God who created the world and created us, I could no more “meet” Him, than Hamlet could meet Shakespeare. If Hamlet wants to prove there is a Shakespeare, he’s not going to be able to do it in a lab, nor is he going to be able to find Shakespeare by going up into the top of the stage. The only way he will know something about Shakespeare is if Shakespeare writes something about himself into the play." - C.S. Lewis
