Cosmic Suicide

Kristor: Cosmic Suicide ...
When we killed Jesus, we killed the perfect material implementation of the Logos of our whole world. We repudiated our own sort of being as it is originally meant to be. Our rejection of the Second Adam was a rejection of the very order of our own being - not just of our being as Man, but that of the whole cosmos, of which we are an integral procedure. Thus the world’s murder of Jesus its own incarnate Logos was the sum of all sins, was the apotheosis and perfection of sin, was the ultimate sin.

As a contravention of being, sin is self-murder. Calvary, then, was the effectual suicide of the cosmos, the beginning of the world’s death. When Jesus died, so did the whole order of the world. At Golgotha, the eschaton was consummated.

The death of Jesus was the death of the cosmos.

And when Jesus triumphed over death, the resurrection of the world began.
These are some of the things one begins to realize when one begins to take seriously, and to explore the meaning of, such statements as "through him [the Logos] were all things made; without him was nothing made that has been made" and "he [the Christ] is the life of the world" and "by him [the Christ], all things were created; ... all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together" and "in Christ we live and move and have our being" and "God is the ground of all being" and so on.

The world lives/exists because it feeds off the life of God, specifically the Second Person, through whom and for whom the world was made: the Son is the Life of the world. You and I live/exist because we consume Christ -- even in the state of sin and rebellion, into which we all are born, we feed off Christ -- so, because Christ is Life Itself, to ultimately refuse Christ is to refuse life/being(existence) itself. To assert (and teach others to assert) that "'nature' is all there is" is to refuse life/being(existence) itself. it is to commit final suicide.
