“Truth of redemptive significance is bound to be counterfactual. God, therefore, is bound to be counterfactual. To be sure, the world is full of people who have no need of redemption. They are the wealthy. They will never have a need to criticize God or the way things are”. John Hobbins on his blog in a post where he suggests that only when one is ‘wrestling’ with God and the scripture (and could bitterly disagree and criticise both), one could find the (redemptive?) ‘truth’. He gives as examples the story of Jacob wrestling with God and Ernst Käsemann’s dislike of Romans 13 after he lost his daughter.
Thanks to James for drawing attention to this post.
