What was the world like before it needed saving? Have we established beyond debate that the evil we find in this world is not a necessary part? It is an add on that we can get rid of. Maybe we are here to get rid of it.
Have we established that evil is banished by holiness? That strength and brains and charisma and all the other characteristics that we humans use to save the world can go very far, but not far enough. We need to be separate from what we are trying to save, outside, removed from.
Humans are bridges. We are made from the same elements as the world AND we have the capacity to see beyond those elements. What element is music made of, after all? What element is relationship made of?
Let’s pretend the Garden in Genesis refers to perfection. It is what the world that doesn’t need saving looks like. Can you describe it? If you were to reply to this post, what would you say about a world that doesn’t need saving? That has no evil in it?
