  1. Put into contemporary language we can say our own “ego”, that which acts as a defensive barrier and asserts domination over others, in contrast to our God-created openness to others, and supremely our openness to our real freedom in becoming who we truly are through the God who truly is.
    Our separation isn’t only from God. It’s an isolating closed-offness that separates us from God and others. Love of God and others is the same reality that can only be overcome through the openness of God, his sacrifice, and his power to break the chains that is our own distorted self.
    That’s a summary of Wolfhart Pannenberg.
