Grey's theology

"Grey's theology" Continued...

Issue: "Why Grey matters," March 17, 2007

The diagnosis is right. The apostle Paul wrote in chapter 7 of Romans about how the law actually leads us to sin. Meredith Grey says that we rebel against parents, and then, "without parents to defy, we break the rules"-including the rules we've adopted for ourselves. She notes, "We throw tantrums when things don't go our way."

The diagnosis is right but the prescription is inadequate. Missing from Grey's Anatomy is God's grace.
