Illuminate Me…On Divinity And Humanity In Christ

Further to some discussions today .. can someone explain to me exactly why (in a Strictly Hypothetical Discussion)the possibility of Christ fathering a child has to affect his Divinity. I’m just saying .. as a possibility – when we talk about Jesus being both fully Human and fully Divine, why is it not possible that the full exception of the ‘imago dei’ couldn’t have been exercised without somehow having to remove the possibility of a “divine God with human skin”? In some respects, I think in the initial overview, that a ‘more’ human Christ almost becomes more tangible. Disregarding the possibilities of a child etc; or even putting them into the mix – we ourselves have only come up with a doctrine and understanding of Christ’s divine/human paradox by wrestling it to a point of submission. I remain willing to accept that there are some things I do not need to know or fully understand in order to have faith, and for faith to be a relevant practice. After all, shouldn’t we expect that there are still greater mysteries to do with our ‘Surrogate Sacrifice’ that what we have so far accepted? Maybe it just doesn’t matter, as Paul says, it is what we know that we should stand in – and what we know is that Jesus, was the Son of God. Surely sex as a possibility, doesn’t change that? Even Fatherhood brings him closer to ‘imago dei’ Maybe?

I probably haven’t thought it through enough yet, but I’m struggling to understand the argument. Feel free to comment.

Song Of The Moment : Keep Me In Your Heart For A While
Warren Zevon

Shadows are falling
and I’m runnin’ out of breath
keep me in your heart for awhile

If I leave you
it doesn’t mean I love you any less
keep me in your heart for a while

When you get up in the morning
and you see that crazy sun
keep me in your heart for a while

There’s a train leaving nightly
called when all is said and done
keep me in your heart for a while

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for a while
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for a while

Sometimes when you’re doing
simple things around the house
maybe you’ll think of me and smile

You know I’m tied to you
like the buttons on your blouse
keep me in your heart for a while

Hold me in your thoughts
take me to your dreams
touch me as I fall into view
and when the winter comes
keep the fires lit
and I’ll be right next to you

Engine driver’s headed north
to Pleasant Street
keep me in your heart for awhile
these wheels keep turning
but they’re running out of steam
keep me in your heart for awhile

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile

Keep me in your heart for awhile…
