World as Symbol

“The universe and everything in it symbolizes God. That is, the universe and everything in it point to God. This means that the Christian view of the world is and can only be fundamentally symbolic. The world does not exist for its own sake, but as a revelation of God.”

– James B. Jordan, Through New Eyes, p. 23
