Gospel Debate

I found Mr Glen’s recent letter in the November edition, about the Gospel, a chilling document. It seemed to me that he wrote what to him was Gospel Truth, with no possibility of another view or another pathway up the mountain of our understanding of God.

No-one would deny that the foundations of our practice of the Christian faith are that we as Christians must love the Lord with all our heart, mind and strength and our neighbours as ourselves. It is when we add to this dogma which we must believe, that Mr Glen and I must part company. The nature of God is truly a mystery. The nature of our universe and our creation as living souls are also mysteries. The difficulty with Mr Glen’s opinion is that he uses human words to describe and define such mysteries. At the age of eighty-five I have spent much of my lifetime increasing my knowledge of this world and its people.

I have often changed my mind-set about spiritual matters. Faith cannot be defined by words.
