From “The Prodigal God” by Tim Keller

“The Bible says that we have been wandering as spiritual exiles ever since [the fall of Adam and Eve].  That is, we have been living in a world that no longer fits our deepest longings.  Though we long for bodies that ‘run and are not weary,’ we have become subject to disease, aging, and death.  Though we need love that lasts, all our relationships are subject to the inevitable entropy of time, and they crumble in our hands.  Even people who stay true to us die and leave us, or we die and leave them.  Though we long to make a difference in the world through our work, we experience endless frustration.  We never fully realize our hopes and dreams.  We may work hard to re-create the home that we have lost, but, says the Bible, it only exists in the presence of the heavenly father from which we have fled.”
