The Scrum of our Beliefs
Copyright 2017 Don Ray
no experience comes closer to knowing God.
No experience can so promptly and radically drive us away from all that is holy.
We may see God in those interactions if we have already made God’s acquaintance.
We may in those inter-human interactions see the reason for hell.
There, in the grip of the handshake or the blow of the fist, we will feel whatever of God is within us and will sense the Void only God can fill.
In our interactions with and responses to our fellow humanity we will experience the breadth of goodness and the depths of evil.
It is there, there in the interactions with our fellow children of God, that the questions of the ages will arise and the contradictory answers will be lost.
There, there in the confusion and conflict of the scrum of our beliefs, we find our redemption and salvation in the ample opportunities for compassion and forgiveness.
