God - Wrestling
I have been reading through The Gospel of Thomas very very slowly lately. Really taking the time to think on and contemplate each saying. Something strange that I notice is while there are some radical differences with mainstream Christianity there are some things that will definitely not keep those who shuck spiritual authority, and stability from feeling uncomfortable. Jesus really expected those who choose to follow him to do just that...be his student..his disciple. And he seems to think not everyone will get it. While thankfully the Gospel of Thomas does not do a lot of speculating about the afterlife, Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas does seem to think that his words are not easy and following him will not be easy. This god-wrestling is not a one time decision nor necessarily an easy task.
