Simon Stephens is saying it all the time, and he’s said it again: ‘playwrights should always ask the question: what is the difference between humans and other animals?’ (via). I heard today on Radio 4 that sheep flock together for selfish reasons – every man for himself – in essence a sheep will get in front of another sheep to defend itself. That made me think of the Denver shootings and the boys who threw themselves in front of their girlfriends. God’s common grace sets us apart from the animals in that we are often selfless.
Romans 2:14 –
For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law.
