Recently I cam across this article, one written by a theologian who believes that you can embrace God without turning your back on the world.
Below is a quote from it that I think goes a good job capturing the main point of it.
“We must know and love Jesus or we’ll never be satisfied. But it doesn’t mean you turn your back on creation. Jesus is the creator of all things and the redeemer of all things, he loves all things. We can trust him that he’s on our side, that he really wants us to enjoy our lives. That enjoying earthly pleasure is not a sin. Sin is a sin. Stuff is not sin. Stuff is God’s gift to us.”
So read the article and tell me what you think. Do you agree, disagree, why or why not? Just remember to read the article first; don’t be the guy who comments without reading.
