dc.description.abstractIn the Gospel, when God is in his heart, Peter recognizes Jesus' divinity. But later, he is thinking like a man, not like God. He very humanly wishes that Jesus not suffer and die. He does not want his friend to go through that. He does not want to lose his friend. He is thinking like a human of our earthly limits, rather than thinking like God of the eternal bigger picture.|When we see religion as an external construct, we get caught up in earthly logic, and enigmatic puzzles, and dilemmas. When we accept that God is in our hearts, it gets easier. If we let God in our hearts, we can think like God, and we can't go wrong.en_US
