That's a lot of ginger.
And the only attempt at theodicy that makes sense to me.
Goal: We see in the image above a vision of heaven, where we wish to be, and where the best are destined to live for eternity.
Problem: How can someone like me, so wicked and horrible, ever stand to be in the presence of such angelic beings?
Solution: I must do battle with demons and men, who like me are scum, wicked, dirty, and as unworthy as I am of heaven, till at last I am washed clean with their blood, and grow to the fullness of understanding not only vice and virtue, but also my own place in the cosmos. Thus can we reach enlightenment, and be granted passage into the eternal kingdom.
You think I joke? You have not read the Psalms enough, or prayed them enough, or contemplated them enough.
