Jesus made a way?

The biblical imagery is God becoming closer or more distant.  God approaches as holiness increases and distances himself as it decreases.  Never a full stop of communication or complete lack of presence.

The imagery changes with Jesus and God exists within humanity.  A dramatic qualitative improvement.

I can see that .....  if spoken metaphorically .

My belief system is Christianity (although a rather different take that the traditional) so a pretty comprehensive integration. I am not a real student of Judaism, Islam or other 'belief systems' so I have no judgment to make concerning them. 

On the other point, the biblical imagery might show God becoming closer or more distant but I don't buy that God's presence is anything but constant. A man or woman's 'holiness' might determine how 'near' they are to God (so to speak) but I don't believe that God 'distances' himself based on the action of man.

Perhaps you haven't read the news HERE . We are now financially self-sustaining and site sponsors have the option to advertise. Only 1 has taken advantage of that perk so far. It will rotate between advertisements automatically and show up after the 1st post of each page. . Perhaps you might be interested?
