Shadows of Divine Things

This site is devoted to theological and philosophical investigations of the spiritual meanings of life, current events, music, spiritual growth, nature, and learning to be attuned to listening to the 'language of God.' The name of this blog comes from one of Jonathan Edwards's journals which he called 'Shadows of Divine Things,' and later renamed 'Images of Divine Things.' As a Christian I am continously on a spiritual journey to grow more into the image of Christ, to understand what it means to be crucified with Christ. To seek the truths of the Christian Faith is of upmost importance, and to know that any truths that are found outside of Christianity are present there because they ultimately point to God. I have an M.A. in theology and apologetics and I completed one year of graduate studies in Philosophy at Marquette University.

Moltmann on The Messianic Calling of Human Beings: Imago Christi

"The true likeness to God is to be found, not at the beginning of God's history with mankind, but at its end; and as goal it is present in that beginning and during every moment of that history. In the New Testament it is Paul, more than anyone else, who uses the concept of likeness to God; and he applies it in order to present Jesus, the raised and transfigured Messiah, as God's true image. Christ is the image and glory of the invisible God on earth. In his fellowship, people become what they are intended to be. Their glorification is promised them with their justification and in the process of their sanctification."

- Jürgen Moltmann, Gott in der Schöpfung: Ökologische Schöpfungslehre [God in Creation (Minneapolis, MN: Fortress Press, 1993); 225]

That's funny. You probably knew that you would be harassed to give up the source of these cartoons.
