An Unanswered Question
...offered by Dn. fdj, a sinner at 8:58 AM [+]
Have I told the story of "ghostie"? He's an imaginary friend (we think) of my two sons. One day Joseph came into the house crying profusely. Sue inquired as to the the issue and he complained that his face was dirty.
Yes, indeed it was, but not unusually so. Little four year olds don't usually bother much with a bit of dirt on their face and Sue suspected one of Joe's siblings had been unusually cruel in teasing him about it. And so she asked: "Who told you your face was dirty?" And he replied: "Ghostie."
A little eerie, but it got me thinking about a similar question asked by God (and never answered): "Who told you you were naked?"
Like Joe had little or no concept of a dirty face being problematic, our father and mother apparently had no concept of nakedness being problematic. Well, maybe it isn't problematic...at least not as we understand problematic? What do you discern from the asking of this question which is never answered, nor its importance or origin ever really elaborated or explained?
