Christian faith as a game

Reality is obviously not simple. But don’t we all have these moments where we sit with friends in a pub or in a sauna, believing honestly, at least for a moment, that we do understand the world, that we do see what’s wrong and how to fix it? And then we eagerly develop our plan for saving the world.

It’s a game. A typically human game. It started with that apple in Eden.

There are people who understand this apple story as the beginning of a big problem, but I prefer to read it optimistically: we are God’s children playing the If-I-Was-God game, trying to help our father in Heaven to save his world. I think that God loves our childlike attempts.

Let’s play the game. Let’s dream. And if our dreams are good, God will care for making them happen.
