Alternate plausibility structure
All that was is no longer of consequence
A new lens calls what was known as vision to reconsideration

"No particular religion matters, neither ours nor yours. But I want to tell you that something has happened that matters, something that judges you and me, your religion and my religion. A New Creation has occurred, a New Being has appeared; and we are all asked to participate in it...Don't compare your religion and our religion, your rites and our rites, your prophets and my prophets...All this is of no avail. We want only to show you something we have seen and to tell you something we have heard...that here and there in the world and now and then in ourselves is a New Creation, usually hidden, but sometimes manifest, and certainly manifest in Jesus who is called the Christ."
Buechner, quoting Tillich, alluding to Paul (Now and Then 14, The New Being 17-8)
