The most important question that I have actually asked in life was "What is the meaning of all this?" A question like this one is also answered by a cosmic Christ, though; Christ's cosmic lordship gives a structure and meaning to reality.

I think that Trinity is a very important part of the answer to the question about whether the universe is a friendly place or not. This harkens back to some of John Reeve's posts on that topic. If God is triune, He can be essentially relational in His being, and thus love can exist, be a part of, the absolute foundational essence of meaning in the universe. If God is only monal, or fundamentally singular, then theoretically there was a time when relationship, and hence love of other, did not exist. Only self love. The belief in the Trinity is part of the assurance that love is at the core of God, and thus at the core of the meaning of the Universe. There is no danger of a reversion to merely self-love, as there has always been selfless love of the other for eternity.

The most important question I ever asked was, "God I don't understand how all the pieces fit, can you show me?"

I disagree with Einstein and Fox, we make the universe dangerous.

The Bible reveals the Christ that created the cosmos and in the cosmos not the Christ having origin from the cosmos.

The Bible will never bind us; it reveals the liberation Christ provides from the limited vision of the human senses when we are given the Mind of Christ. The current scientific paradigm is limited to the axiom that human senses and perception are the epistemological gauge. The Mind of Christ provides the divine gauge.

As children there was a time when we did not exist, therefore we cannot be divine, yet through our adoption in our surrendered will through the faith we receive, we become vessels of the divine mind revealing God to the cosmos. For Christ tells us, “I say to you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John; yet he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.”
