Theology of time

... any thoughts?

What if the "fulfilled time" (i.e. Ephesians) indicates "Time" is relational - rather than a linear definition, it is a definition of when God's plan comes to fruition. Time is not fulfilled until Jesus is pierced on the cross. Therefore, all time we spend in Christ is "fulfilled time" - and all time spent outside of Christ is wasted time - or, as Barth would imply, timelessness.

Could have wide implications of how the Holy Spirit indwells in the saints in the Old Testament and how the OT saints (i.e. how we could even call them OT Christians) could be saved, if Jesus hasn't "yet" been glorified. If time is relational, and not linear, then the OT saints very much enjoyed that time as fulfilled even before the incarnation.

random thoughts

things that i'm too lazy to write out...

 -  to be generous implies to be connected to an unlimited source of wealth (i.e. the Giver), rather than a quantifiable amount

- Jesus does not set us free to go, but to come

- The man who is completely free from his bonds, is the one who is free to be completely bound
