The God Outside My Head
Updated: Jun 17, 2019
I have a lot of doubts that the God i pray to in my head really exists.
But i’m a little bit more confident that there is a God that hears me. And i think this is where he inhabits:
Science: every law of nature we have discovered was designed and commissioned by him to hold this world together in sustained harmony.
Relativity: As the universe expands nearly at the speed of light, the earth ages billions of years, while the unmoving center ages about 7 days as told in the Bible.
Marriage: The love and sacrifice of man and woman reflects the love between God and man.
Ancient Myths: in the stories of old the main theme that reoccurs over different ages and cultures is the hero legend, where a member of the people conquers a previously insurmountable barrier and brings new life to his people. The human mind has a propensity for the Christian story.
Movies: Heroes that fight and sacrifice for a greater good reflects the archetypal legend in our hearts.
Anyway, when the God on Christian radio or the nice and tidy Jesus that fits neatly into a shoebox with Bible verbiage seems less and less real, I turn to look for him in everything in this world, that ever existed.
