Free exercise of the imagination can take us to exciting and wondrous places. But that freedom must first navigate a murky, personal forest of political bias, aesthetic taste, insecurity and moral conviction.

That said, let me challenge you to take a trip on an imaginary pathway. Set aside, for a moment, your passions over creation vs. evolution. Disregard the raging argument over the length of a biblical “day.” Suppose, simply for the sake of an imaginary trip, that the geological eras of scientism mirror the Bible’s six days of creation. According to both, man is the most recent member of the created universe. In the biblical account, God rested on day seven.

Now we come to the question that stretches and entices the limits of speculation. If we suppose that we are living through heaven’s day seven, what might God do on day eight?
