Picking up from the previous video clip, this fourth video clip of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf from an interview with World Wisdom explores the mystery of man as sinner in a necessary relationship to God, the Forgiver. Imam Feisal explains a bit about the Divine Attributes that only take on material meaning once they can be manifested in the world of material beings. Imam Feisal gives a very concise example of the metaphysics of God’s relationship to mankind: For God the Forgiver to be truly manifested, it requires a creature that is free, that sins, that feels remorse, and that asks forgiveness. This intimate relationship between Creator and creature results in the full manifestation of God as, for example, Forgiver.
