Beauty

Let’s say you go out on a hike and encounter a snow-capped mountain. A river crashes down. You see fish leaping in the pools. There are all manner of trees, grasses and wildflowers. You are awestruck by the beauty. That picture was created by ordinary matter and energy. Molecules sometimes knock your socks off. But a Christian cannot leave it at that. They have to get out their water colour kits and start painting everything with God paint. They can’t appreciate it for what it is. They have to homogenise it first with human concepts, the equivalent of pouring ketchup by a gallon over all their food.
