“Sin and its effects is the one place that we can hide from the overwhelming glorious reality of God.

Human suffering is a consequence of sin and evil, but God cannot be affected by these parasites that feed on goodness and replace truth with an illusion and a lie.  God cannot participate in such a lie, but in taking on human nature, God in Jesus Christ enters into our illusions, letting loose the fullness of divine loving action and exploding the lie forever. The cross is the ultimate moment of human contact with the reality of God, resulting in the shattering of all illusions.”

-Laura Smit-  From “Who is God”
