A Hidden Gem Dec 29, 2009
In the course of my growth as a Christian, I had a moment of increased awareness when I realized that all people who are sinners are also all people who have been sinned against. The church promotes heavily the concept of being a sinner, but precious little is said about how we have all been wounded by sin. We have all sinned and we have all been wounded by sin. As I lived with this revelation and considered the nature of the cross, I realized God wanted to heal this wounded condition in us. The church is barely aware of this aspect of the risen Christ. I decided to try and find whether others have written about this concept, and to my delight I discovered this book. It is a collection of writings by various theoloogians edited by Park and Nelson. This is not an entirely easy read, but if you work at understanding what they have to say you will be greatly blessed and impressed. I know many will find issues with the various writings. This is a perspective that is avoided by the church to a great degree. It is past time that we consider how we go about helping peoploe in their woundedness. We are all wounded. It is not enough to have your sins forgiven. For so many years I have watched people convert in the ususal ways, they are excited, and then gradually they sink into the usual Chrisitan malaise; feeling and knowing they need more, but never able to figure out what it is they need they struggle on. This concept of healing our woundedness is one of the balancing needs of every Chrisitan in our world. We would all do well to study what they have to say then go to God and learn how to help people recover from woundedness from the sin of others. How have we missed this?
