ethics for babies

I am grateful for having found these lectures. The ramblings below might be slightly less weird if you take a peek.

Babies, as, in God’s plan, the result of committed love-making, can be said, albeit with care, to be incarnations of love. Jesus is, according to God’s plan, also and yet more fundamentally “love incarnate”; contra the mocking local Anglican billboard (see NZ herald: St Matthews), not we believe in quite the same sense as we are; yet we see a similar pattern (and the existence of patterns rule out chance explanations; and in this case suggest a purpose worth considering.) God’s love is different to ours; it is less exclusive and still more personal; however let us note the pattern, reflect on the relationship between love and personhood; and perhaps even respond in trust.
