The Chaplain's Corner
It's just an expression, right? "Oh my god!!!"
Theologian Paul Tillich suggested that whatever we grasp as our ultimate concern we call "god."
"OMG! I aced (or flunked) that test."
"OMG! He is so HOT!"
"OMG! I was so wasted!"
"OMG! Did you hear how much she makes?"
Grades, sex, alcohol, money: contenders all in the campaign to become our ultimate concern, and therefore our "god."
OMG! Maybe it's not just an expression after all.
