Being and Becoming In Christ

Christ, being the agent of creation and redemption, is both obstacle and mediator in the being and becoming of the world. It is through him that God called forth creation, and it is in him that we live, move, and have our being. Consequently, apart from him we cannot adequately understand or relate to the world, others, or even ourselves, for he is intimately woven into the fabric of all that is. It is also through Christ that God redeemed all things and reconciled the world unto himself. Thus, Christ is the means by which all creation can recover all that was lost in the primordial fall. On a human level, this means that to deny Christ is to deny something essential to who we are, and integral to our proper becoming.
