If the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is indeed involved in the recreation of the world, in winning it back from the evil one, then Christians must go back to the Garden of Eden and reclaim God’s original purposes for creatures and creation. We are the image-bearers of God, and we have been given the task of making this world the theater of God’s glory. It is not only the inner chamber of the heart that should glow with the presence of God, but our culture too—our cities, our civilization, the whole of life.
