Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

August 9, 2011 (mythic)


A myth or a fact?

“For just as through the disobedience of the one man
the many were made sinners,
so also through the obedience of the one man
the many will be made righteous.”
- Romans 5:19 NIV

I enjoy reading “mythic” fantasy...
J. R. R. Tolkien (Lord of the Rings);
C. S. Lewis, (Narnia), etc.
We all like to read about heros
overcoming great odds to help others.
Sometimes these stories,
the stuff of myth, are factual.

“By becoming fact,
it does not cease to be myth;
that is the miracle.”
- C. S. Lewis

“For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him
shall not perish but have eternal life.”
- John 3:16 NIV
