We've caught up with God in the dressing rom at the Club Melancholia . He's between sets.
"Hi. My name is Larry, and I'm here to interview you for the Blog audience."
"How would you describe yourself?"
"I am that I am."
"How would you describe your relationship with the world?"
"My Son, Jesus, was born into your world to save it, not to condemn it."
"What about everyone's belief that you don't tolerate sin or error?"
"I don't. That's why my Son had to live for you and die for you in your world."
"Well, yes, we all know that. But what about after we're born again?"
"From before the beginning of the world, I knew you all. The moment you turn to me, I give you the resources to live the way I made you to. Your sins after that moment are also forgiven to the degree that you allow me to forgive you."
"What about backsliding?"
"That is between the individual involved and me. All of you are the same in that each of you is unique."
"You make it sound so simple."
"Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. 'Pick up your cross daily and follow Me.' Each day you decide whom you will serve. My burden is light, my yoke easy."
