Lindskoog: the persistent vision

Thursday, March 12, 2020
    So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.
    —Genesis 3:23-24 (NIV)
    There is much that is bad and meaningless in the universe, and the universe contains men who know that much is bad and meaningless. The Christian answer to the problem is that this is a good world gone wrong, but with a memory of what it should have been.
    ... Kathryn Lindskoog (1934-2003), C. S. Lewis, Mere Christian, Glendale, Cal.: G/L Publications, 1973, reprint, Downers Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press, 1981, p. 46-47 (see the book)
    See also Gen. 1:31; 3:17-19,22; 1 Kings 3:9; Matt. 7:16-20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, through Your grace, may we mirror Your perfection.
