Find a new vision and world view, a truer one than a 2000 year old philosophy..... There is no god and if there was s/he/it certainly wouldn't be a christian or for that matter, a ...[text shortened]... m or Hindu god...
We are animals of a chance occurence, we live and we die and that is all.
I believe that in the Person of Jesus Christ God and man are mingled together in the most unique union of life. Christ is not only the Savior but He is what God meant by "human being".
Christ is the perfect union of divinity and humanity. I believe that Christ is not only the Lord and Head of a new eternal humanity but the "standard model" of what humanity is to be in God's eternal purpose.
For this reason I think that if one really wants to understand the universe one has to study the Person of Jesus Christ. I believe that the universe is just a stage and a proper environment where the Creator can carry out this union of joining His uncreated and eternal Being with our created being.
The expression and model of this perfect union is in the God - man Jesus Christ. He is not merely God off in an objective sense. He is God and man united in an organic mingling for His expression and our enjoyment.
The Bible concludes with a marriage of the Triune God joining Himself with the redeemed, regenerated, sanctified, resurrected and glorified elect of God to be His sons with His life.
