He has filled His world full of pleasures. There are things for humans to do all day long without His minding in the least– sleeping, washing, eating, drinking, making love, playing, praying, working. Everything has to be twisted before it’s any use to us. We fight under cruel disadvantages. Nothing is naturally on our side.
~ Letter 22
This is better than a theology that emphasizes “common grace.” This is a theology that emphasizes creation.
All things are naturally good because all things come from God.
So, this ought to influence our approach to culture. We don’t have to drastically alter the natural state of things. All we need to do is remove the evil that may have infected them. Remove the evil from rock music, and that which is left will simply be “Christian rock.” No need to add extra sugar on top.
Remove any evil that may be in our practice of Logic and Math, and the leftover will be “Christian Logic” and “Christian Math.”
This is important because unbelievers didn’t invent these things. God did.
And that’s what will separate the good from the bad&ugly “worldviews.”
