5. 24 delivered
Playing in Ecclesiastes 1. And William Lane Craig on meaninglessness without God. Ecclesiastes expresses something that Craig says: "...people occupy their time and their thoughts with trivialities and distractions, so as to avoid the despair, boredom, and anxiety that would inevitably result if those diversions were removed"
And Christians have to live in that too. As Barry Webb says... Ecclesiates means we can have "joy anchored in reality". It's a "garment for those who are through with triumphalism and cant, and are willing to face life as it really is."
