The Gospel of the Bible records the sacredness of Jesus. He said an important word: believe in me and have eternal life. Jesus Christ did not confuse the people, but went to the cross to die and gave back to his followers. He reaffirmed with his death and resurrection that people need faith and need to regret your glory in the loss of God…
In short, people should “have faith.”
All the great Dostoevsky novels emphasize this heavy proposition: faith. Lack of the pain of faith, the pain of gaining faith, the pain of losing faith… The outstanding deity that is manifested in all the ordinary working people, the unparalleled moral beauty; on the contrary, It is the revelation of the shameless waves of all those who are not determined, those who do not believe in God, and the truth of those who sway between the remorse and the remorse. I personally feel that the novelist should eventually set such a great benchmark – to explore the possibility and impossibility of the letter from the ordinary people, to explore the ugliness, contradictions and struggles of the people, to discuss what the soul is saved, and to discuss our distance from God. How far is it to discuss the extent to which we should practice… Dostoevsky’s novels are amazing, even if the most humble little person appears, it will hold you like a creditor and throw you into it. Humanity, deity, animalism, debate, quarrel, war, and then bloodshed and death.
If faith is literature? I mean, can literature itself be a belief?
In fact, God does not stipulate what kind of work we should rely on to approach Him and love Him. In other words, the way we trust can be achieved through our enthusiasm and specific input. It is certainly feasible to practice literature. Many people are saved through literature. They find truth, goodness and love from literature. But there are countless people who fall because of literature. They mistakenly believe that literature is God, so the cause and effect are reversed, fame and fortune. It becomes the purpose, and it is the sole purpose; the person is distorted, and God is of course far away; the person who does not trust in Jesus is blessed, and literature does not replace God. It is only one of the ways to lead to God, and may be the most important way. This route is responsible for asking questions and is not responsible for answering. Even if the writer’s forced answer, it will be stupid. (God laughs as soon as humans think)
“Su Tong is coming”, a novel that tries to explore faith, a novel that is not very disciplined. I just want to try to ask, what does literature bring to us? In my opinion, Guo Wei is a more determined literary follower. Du is not the opposite. Although he has various masters hanging on his mouth, who can imagine the inner pain? – Perhaps it is the use of literature as a god. How should these pains be eliminated? Love literature, and trying to love a literary fanatic is our only way? Is this kind of love approaching or staying away?
“Su Tong is coming” has no answer. I don’t have it myself. There is no more on Du.
At that time, Su Tong really came to Kunming and really held a large-scale literary meeting. When I read some Su Tong novels, I was one of the fanatical literary youths who worshiped him. During that event, Su Tong’s sly talks left a deep impression on me. I suddenly discovered that when I look at the literary heat wave of the year, there are so many literary believers who are willing to sacrifice themselves as a sacrifice to the Temple of Muse. On the way. Is this fortunate or unfortunate? I am not sure. But one thing: the chat is better than today’s literary style – good books and good novels are getting less and less people to ask for better?
I often say that if children don’t believe in God and don’t believe in literature, what do they believe? love? jobs? status? money?
Fortunately, we are still a group of people who believe in literature. Through literature, we may be closer to God and closer to Jesus’ path. How lucky this is.
