The Christian Mind quotation #2

The Christian mind recognizes that youth's instinct to envelop the experiences of music, sex, and communal adventure, with deep, passionate significance is fundamentally healthy. Youth's tendency to idealize--even to idealize the pop-singer and the film-star--springs from the instinct to spiritualize earthly experience, which is part of redeemed mankind's divine endowment. It is therefore logical and necessary that the fact of youthful romanticism should be subsumed into the theology of divine creation, incarnation, redemption, and salvation. ~Harry Blamires, The Christian Mind, (1963), p. 181.
