Thursday Thoughts – September 29

Many Christians contend that God fixed the planets and stars and made natural laws that don’t look like they require further specific intervention (if they did things would be likely to spin off into utter chaos), but somehow when it comes to their personal lives God is “seen” to be explicitly intervening every two minutes or so to re-arrange the world on their behalf. On the basis of this incongruity, perhaps a re-exploration of Divine action would be pertinent for the credibility of theism and the Christian faith.
