reality of God living in Christ. Only now, in the midst of all that is known
as "the world", rises a point that does not belong
to the world; a place into which one may step; a room one may enter; a power
on which one may lean; a love to which one may give oneself. This is reality,
different from the reality of the world, more real than the world. Faith is
the act of seizing this reality, of building one's life on it, of becoming part
of it. The life of faith demands a revolution in our sense of reality. In our
consciousness, which is not only entangled but completely befuddled by the world,
the body is more real than the soul; electricity more real than thought; power
more real than love; utility more real than truth. Together they form the world
- incomparably more real than God."
