Imitatio Dei[1]

 

There are many metaphors through which aspects of God are revealed: King, Savior, Redeemer, Master, Lover, Father, Mother, Ruler, Potter, Rock, Light, Lion, Eagle, Gardener.  However, God as author is the metaphor that should remind us that all these other metaphors are just that – metaphors.  Isn’t the best fiction the one that gets you to buy in so completely that you forget the central conceit and the author as well?

[1] The theological concept of the apotheosis of mortal man through the self-realization of one’s innate divine attributes.
