What did the Holy Blacksmith forge in the fiery furnace of his passion and death?
The sledgehammer of truth.
How was it forged?
By depositing the Son of God while he was human, alive, tender, vulnerable and our guest upon the earth into the fiery furnance and then having him emerge therefrom still alive and still in love with us.
Why was it forged?
To shatter the illusion that hides the sweetness of paradise from us. To shatter it as the blow of a hammer shatters glass.
How does the sledgehammer of truth shatter the illusion that hides the sweetness of paradise from us?
He did not stay dead and he did not stop loving us. He emerged from the dead still alive and still in love with us. That he emerged from the dead still alive revealed the power of Jesus. Nobody emerges from the dead. He did. That he emerged from the dead still in love with us is the proof that our conception of divinity as power is incomplete. Divinity is also love. Power and love are the characteristics that best capture the reality of God - perfection in power and perfection in love. His power built paradise for us. His love for us, however, makes paradise sweet. Power demands respect but love demands love.
Why is shattering the illusion important?
Rational creatures seek the sweetness of paradise (and flee the sourness of godlessness). It is contrary to our self-interest to do otherwise. It is crazy to do otherwise.
