Not Two Billiard Balls

Sharing Options

“In a perichoretic world, the gift need not displace the Giver, as though they were two billiard balls. In the material world, the space that one object occupies is space that another object cannot occupy. We carry our assumptions about this over into the spiritual world, and we consequently assume that if we are thinking about meat on the grill, bees in the honeysuckle, a sweet wife in bed, beer in a frosted glass, or a full tank of gas and lots of Wyoming ahead, then we cannot be thinking about God also, or be living in gratitude before Him. But I don’t believe this is the case at all.”

Chestertonian Calvinism, pp. 47-48
