Chesterton: the universal relevance

Tuesday, June 13, 2017
    Commemoration of Gilbert Keith Chesterton, Apologist and Writer, 1936
    And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
    —Ephesians 1:22-23 (NIV)
    If Christianity should happen to be true—that is to say, if its God is the real God of the universe—then defending it may mean talking about anything and everything. Things can be irrelevant to the proposition that Christianity is false, but nothing can be irrelevant to the proposition that Christianity is true. [All] things not only may have something to do with the Christian God, but must have something to do with Him if He lives and reigns.
    ... Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936), Wisdom and Innocence: A Life of G. K. Chesterton, Joseph Pearce, Ignatius Press, 1997, p. 80 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 1:22-23; Matt. 28:18; 1 Cor. 15:25-27; 2 Pet. 1:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are present in my heart.
