The resurrection

‘[The resurrection] is unique, but it is not just a series of events that break all the known laws of nature. It is something that reveals in an extraordinary way the true spiritual basis of all physical nature, and the ultimate spiritual goal towards which all laws of nature are directed. The resurrection of Jesus is not a bizarre divine interruption in a purely material universe. It is a disclosure of the ultimate nature of reality as spiritual, and of the final goal of the material universe as the perfected unity of all things in God’
Keith Ward, Christianity: Guide for the Perplexed (London: SPCK, 2007), 37

Good to see Keith Ward writes as lucidly and transparently as ever.

'....and the ultimate spiritual goal towards which all laws of nature are directed.'

Does that include Charles' Law and Hooke's Law?

The quoted piece is utterly meaningless, like so much theology.

Jesus resurrected body still had wounds. Were they perfected wounds?

Steven, I would be interested to hear how you define 'meaning'.

I think Steven means to say:

"I don't want there to be a God"

but just doesn't can't say it so lucidly and transparantly.
