Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

The ultimate restoration of man and the universe to a form analogous to that of the initial righteousness and blessedness enjoyed before the fall.

  1. This idea of restoration suffers from the same sorts of objections as did the Fall: there would need to be a change in the laws of physics.
  2. Lions eating straw would be a pitiful sight, which is why this idea from Isaiah 11 is often taken figuratively as, no doubt, it was originally intended. However, unless such passages are taken literally, it is difficult to see how a state without pain or death could be achieved.
