Seeing an Avatar Through Christ’s Eyes
In Life Together, Bonhoeffer states “Because Christ has long since acted decisively for my brother, before I could begin to act, I must leave him his freedom to be Christ’s; I must meet him only as the person he is in Christ’s eyes”
I would like to encourage a discussion about how online community fosters or hinders a truer “seeing” of a person as they are in Christ’s eyes. I’m thinkin’ that in “virtual” spaces, where individuals define how they are visually perceived but who often become deeply transparent about their heart, mind and soul have a unique opportunity to be seen for the person she is in Christ’s eyes.
One teensy theological issue at the heart of this conversation:
Bodies vs. Souls – who are we? (Both, one or the other, neither?) and how does The Incarnation speak to this?
