It was Oscar Wilde who said.
The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.
I think a lot of Christians live in fictionland. The reason why we are trying to be good is to have a happy ending…or perhaps I should say, a happy ending, NOW. A lot of us think by being in the church, we will escape the pain of everyday life. We live in this man-made word where everybody is smiling or pretends to be smiling. That’s when we begin to give fiction answers to real life pain. And saddest of all…because we live in fictionland, we miss God in the real one.
