|I've added a new entry to my book, "These Are My JOTtings, Part #2" : |
"The Universe of Man"
It has always intrigued me, that the very people,
who declare, that there are no Absolutes
tend to be the ones, who use sweeping generalizations
to "prove" the non-existence of God.
"God doesn't exist. Just look at all the wasted space in the Universe.
If we are the only sentient beings throughout all of space,
then there is too much of a waste of stars, planets, and materials of all sorts
to ever give credibility to an All-Wise God, 'Who made all things.'
If such a god exists, who allows all of the wasted space and materials of
the Universe, then at the very least, he (or whoever) is most inefficient."
This line of reasoning got me to think much deeper about the importance
of the vastness of Space (aka the Physical Universe.)
What if the creation of life on Earth in general, and the creation of Man in specific
is so complex, that just as the moon exerts a gravitational pull on the Earth's oceans
to create the tides, every object in the whole of the Universe exerts some sort of
gravitational pull through billions of interwoven connective relationships,
like the strings of marionettes, which pull arms, legs, the head, etc. to create
the appearance of life in each of the puppets, and the necessity of life on Earth?
What if the maintenance of the tender balance of Predestination and Free Will
requires, that every object in the Universe is Absolutely necessary
to the maintenance of life on Earth as some sort of web, which creates
breathable air, liveable temperatures, the dance of day/night, seasons, and the imperceptible movement of the Earth in rotation, in circumventing the sun,
the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, and the race to the end of the Universe,
providing every human with life and choice to prepare him or her
for life throughout Eternity?
Bottom Line: Human thoughts like mine and human words such as these we use
to communicate are all but a drop in the ocean of God's Inexhaustible Wisdom.
My inability to know the depths of what God has created will remain unknowable,
until the Lord chooses to teach some amount of it to me here in this life
or in the eternal Day in His Presence forever.
May the Lord give each of us the Wisdom to believe in the Bigness of
the God we can NEVER fully understand.
A god we can understand is NEVER big enough to save any of us.
