Understanding in Context

May 14, 2008
clipped from christiantheology.wordpress.com
With God, I understand who and what I am, and why the world is the way it is, and why things are the way they seem to be, including everything from physics, to sorrow over death, the love of friends and family and the longing for the afterlife. My grief over sin, the desire for salvation, and the need for reconciliation to one greater than myself, that seems to be innate, makes sense in this context but not outside of it. We need to have a worldview that can coherently reconcile that we grow through time into something either wonderful, or base, and that being either wonderful or base is not just a subjective judgment or opinion, but a real condition ascribable to persons and behaviors.
There is something better and worse that I can be, and it matters.
