I found some notes I had jotted down in my planner – they’re not fully developed, but I’d thought I’d post them up and see what happens! 🙂
We were created in imperfection so that we could realize that we must make the journey home (to wholeness, to heaven) together – if we were perfect we wouldn’t need other people, and Christianity is (or should be) a communal faith.
Also, if God had created us “perfect” then we would be gods as well, not humans – God alone is perfect . . . that means that necessarily – ontologically – we must not be perfect . . . it distinguishes us from God.
Maybe “imperfection” is not the right word . . . maybe that word is more indicative of a longing, a yearning for something beyond us, something that completes us . . . we are not created complete (perfect) because we will be complete at our re-birth in heaven.
Blessings & Peace,
