Heart of Matter: A Process of Faith

“What appears to the sciences as a process of cosmogenesis is seen from the perspective of faith to be a process of Christogenesis.”

Ilia Delio, Making All Things New

“Lo que ante las ciencias se presenta como un proceso de cosmogénesis, desde la perspectiva de la fe lo vemos como un proceso de cristogénesis.”

    As categories, science and religion are mere abstractions, threads plucked from a unified tapestry (whole) that enfolds them both without distinction. Their apparent difference is no difference at all, merely the result of two unintegrated disciplines viewing the same crossover phenomenon from different access points, using different language to describe it. Arguing science vs religion is like arguing whether it’s Uncle Sam or the U.S. government that oversees its borders, enforces its laws, and protects its citizenry. Hence, most advanced degrees in academia, particularly those in science and theology, are in reality degrees in dualistic thinking, serving to keep the status (stasis) quo.

    Wonderful statement— worth spending reflection time unpacking it.
