Has he found a doorway?
By rationale, they say, “We can perceive the eternal things by the work of our own hands. We don’t need Christ Jesus to see God.”
Then what is the use of Christ’s sacrifice? What is the use of God the father elevating his Holy Son to first of all creation? Why has he said to us, “I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to God but through me.”
If a man can save himself by the work of his own hands why did God bother to suffer for our sake? If the work of our hands can bring us near to God, then we don’t need Christ! SUCCESS! Right?
Tim Linhart is famous for his ice music. A friend of mine says we should go and see this. So I looked it up.
I will not go and see it. The what he has done is interesting and wonderful. But in his explanation he attributes spiritual aspects he has no right to attribute. He says that since we are made with melted water we find a connection to spiritual things through the music of ice. Really?
Is there a door to eternity that a man may pass through by the work of his own hands? Or is the spiritual emphasis only found in the imagination of a man with some talent to wield sharp objects against ice? And, if self-salvation can be achieved through ice, why not cow pies too?
Read the Gospel. You determine for yourself what is true and what is imagination. The entirety of eternity is at stake in such presumably small details. Either Christ is King or he is of no value.
