The meaning of the Child of God lies solely in his relationship with his Creator.
If it were elsewhere, it would rest upon contingency, but there is nothing else.
And this is wholly loving and forever.
Yet has the Child of God invented an unholy relationship between him and his Father.
His real relationship is one of perfect union and unbroken continuity. The one he made is partial, self-centered, broken into fragments, and full of fear.
The one created by his Father is wholly self-encompassing and self-extending. The one he made is wholly self-destructive and self-limiting.
Any relationship in which the body enters is based not on love, but on idolatry.
Love wishes to be known, completely understood, and shared. It has no secrets; nothing that it would keep apart and hide. But idols do not share.
Love does not seek for power, but for relationships.
The Holy Spirit’s temple is not a body, but a relationship.
