Configuration: (n) an arrangement of elements in a particular form, figure, or combination
If you’re going to live a fruitful, intelligent, expansive and joyful life on this planet we call Earth, you must avoid two armed camps of misconception:
- I don’t believe in God
- I believe in the Bible, no matter what
If you decide to join one of these teams, you nullify some of your value and worth to the world around you.
For denying there’s a God leaves out vast mountain ranges of spiritual and emotional peaks which open the eyes to a mission of climbing the mountains instead of just studying them.
On the other hand, believing that the Bible is the infallible word of God, simultaneously inerrant, abandons you, defending ridiculous bits of prejudice, which will eventually demean you to the role of a bigot.
We are in the midst of a configuration–suspended in a Universe beyond our comprehension, challenged to include both the natural and the ethereal in discovering exactly how we can get along with one another, inventing ways to prevent the diseases and disasters bewitching us.
If you understand this, welcome to Earth.
If you don’t, please enjoy your brief visit.
