The Twos

The human mind always tries to divide into twos, especially in religious matters.  We see Saint and Sinner, Heaven and Earth, Physical and Spiritual.   In non-religious matters, we also try to divide into strong lines, without overlap.  We see male and female as well as heterosexual and homosexual. We see skin as light and dark.   We see personalities as introverted and extroverted.

The miracle of the Kingdom is that the twos become one.  Saint and Sinner are all alike.  Heaven and Earth become one. The physical and spiritual become as one.   The old boundaries of gender and sexuality are no more.  All our current debate on these things have no value in the Kingdom.
