Bodies are theological Print

In this dualistic idea of the human being, where we see the body as merely a shell in which the consciousness dwells, a shell in which the true human person dwells, we lose any sense of the story that the body tells. Our bodies tell a story. It’s not just an arbitrary collection of atoms. Human sexuality, revealed through the body, is not just the end result of a chance evolution. But rather, it’s the loving design of a creator who’s trying to tell us a story. The first book that God gives us is not the Bible, but it’s the book of creation. And so we need to learn how to read the book of creation. And the more we learn to read this book, the more we realize that all of creation is telling us the story of God
s life-giving love.
