Thinking 'Too Clearly'?
When I read Dwight Creech’s letter to The Pilot (March 23), two Scriptures popped into my mind:
“What we see now is like a dim image in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. What I know now is only partial; then it will be complete — as complete as God’s knowledge of me.”
And: “Some people brought their babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. The disciples saw them and scolded them for doing so, but Jesus called the children to him and said, ‘Let the children come to me and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Remember this! Whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.’”
In my opinion Creech sees too “clearly” and has moved from a childlike faith to a kind of importance that Jesus was rebuking. For me it’s important to continually remind myself that there’s a huge difference between my beliefs and my faith. What I think about theologically and philosophically is very different than being still and open to God’s guidance. My thoughts seem to interfere with that guidance when I get too dogmatic about my clarity.
Mr. Creech, what is a child’s position on homosexuality?
