Humanity is searching for the relationship it lost in the Garden of Eden.
Today, I read Donald’s Miller’s book, “Searching for God Knows What.” In his usual conversational yet poignant writing, Miller talks about his journey to discover who God and Jesus is and his discover of the essence of our faith.
Miller takes a hard look at what Christianity has become. Many times, it’s a cut and dry set of beliefs that will grant you access to heaven. But is that what humanity is really searching for? A bullet-point list?
“Maybe the gospel of Jesus, in other words, is all about our relationship with Jesus rather than about ideas,” Miller writes. “And perhaps our lists and formulas and bullet points are nice in the sense that they help us memorize different truths, but harmful in the sens that they blind us to the necessary relationship that must begin between ourselves and God for us to become His followers.”
