Trinitarian Laughter

One principle of presuppositionalism is that man is fully dependent on God. He thinks and meditates based on God’s creative standard of thinking and meditation. Ungodly man cannot do either without first borrowing from God. As Van Til once put it: “Unbelieving man must first sit on God’s lap before they can spit on Him.”

The same principle also applies to humor and laughter. As Psalm 2 & 37 so clearly demonstrates, while the wicked glories in their agendas, Yahweh laughs. History is God’s laughter. The greater the plans against Yahweh and His people, the greater the divine laughter.

As I have observed recently, “humor and laughter only rightly belongs to Trinitarians. when pagans are funny they are borrowing from God’s humor.” Even the simple joy of laughter is originated in the Trinitarian life. The Trinitarian community delights and laughs. The kingdom is a joyful kingdom because God is a joyful God. He gives us every good thing for our enjoyment and pleasure. He makes His creation very good. Laughter is Trinitarian.
