…in this case, for sure.
The answer to the question posed in the essay title is – no. It’s extraordinarily interesting that folk seem to think about things always from ‘below’, from an anthropocentric point of view. Human beings are not the center of life nor the focal point of the universe. God is. The issue isn’t how people relate, or not, to God; but how God relates to people. Away with the nonsense of ‘man and woman centeredness’ – it’s absurd.
The “point of view” or starting point is essential: It determines the answer to the question.
