The box of humanity
For in him all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily.
Colossians 2: 9
If we consider this world as a dimension of time and space, then a closed box could represent it, with God outside the box. It is impossible for humanity to escape the box because, by definition, the natural cannot enter the supernatural. What is confined to time and space cannot escape eternity or infinity.
Since there is something inside man that yearns to know what is outside the box, he invents deities, which is the way in which religions proliferate. The various religions become an extension of man’s desire to escape from his box, but man’s longing to transcend the box cannot be resolved because he is confined to the box by his own nature.
Is there a way to escape from that box? Yes, the good news is that there is a way, and it is through Christ. Christianity recognizes that you cannot get out of your box, but proclaims that God has invaded the box from the outside. Jesus Christ has entered your world to show you how you can dwell with God forever. Won’t accept your invitation?
