Hello there. Sorry I haven’t been writing very much here recently. I’m trying to write “321” the evangelistic book right now. Please pray for that project if you remember. And perhaps you can help me with something….
At one point in the book I talk about the four fundamental realities you can choose between in the beginning – nothing, chaos, power or love (see here for the seed of the idea). Was wondering if you had any good quotes for each of the options.
If you believe in the beginning there was nothing – life is absurd, meaningless, hopeless.
If you believe in the beginning there was chaos – life is endless struggle and power plays.
If you believe in the beginning there was power – life is a slavery to almighty god or law or fate.
If you believe in the beginning there was love – life is about finding your place in God’s family of love.
Do you have any quotes from nihilists, ultra-Darwinians, determinists, theologians or others that would put flesh on those bones?
