Joy will triumph

An alleged Christianity which fails to express itself in gaiety, at some point, is clearly spurious. The Christian is light-hearted not because he is blind to injustice and suffering, but because he is convinced that these, in the light of the divine sovereignty, are never ULTIMATE.

–Elton Trueblood (1900 – 1994)

The deepest conviction

The deepest conviction of all Christian theology
is the affirmation that the God of all the world
is like Jesus Christ.

God is like Jesus Christ

The deepest conviction of all Christian theology is the affirmation that the God of all the world is like Jesus Christ. . . If we take this seriously we conclude that God cannot be cruel, or self-centered or vindictive, or even lacking in humor.
