Who We Are
Did you know that we were all created? Yes,each of us must have had a creator for us to exist. Of course we had a father and a mother. Our mother held us for about nine months in side of her and when it was time, we came forth into the light of day. This birthing process has been going on since the beginning and will continue to infinity in some form or fashion. The big argument has always been that we all are products of evolution, but there still has to be a beginning and a source of creation. We are not chickens born from eggs or reptiles hatched by the dozen. We were given the gift of live birth. The fact that all life may have evolved from tiny cells is widely accepted by scientist, but someone had to create the cells. The scripture accounts state that man was created in the image of God and a time line may have been altogether different from our own modern concepts of a day,year, or century. Our basic images may have altered over thousands of years, but this does not mean that we may not resemble our creator.
The very make up of mankind will not allow for there to be the absence of a beginning and an end. All of the laws of nature prove this to us. Yet we still seem to differ in our beliefs about creation. Does not a chicken produce an egg, and in turn, might that egg develop and produce more chickens? Of course it is correct in assuming this, you might agree. Who created the first chicken? The chicken evolved. Perhaps it started as a tiny one celled life form and later became a chicken. If mankind did the same, why would that alter or destroy scriptural doctrine? We are all creations of the same God in any language, color, or religion.
How could one God busy himself so much with the creation of the infinite number of living things on our planet, you might ask? The scriptures plainly state that we created man in our way and time . Perhaps our creator had a lot of help. Much of what the doctrine tells us is to be taken in faith and devotion to our benevolent maker. The main thing about our creation is that each of us is given a choice to make as to who we will follow and how each of us lives our life. Do we take the path of goodness and caring or do we choose the harmful road to destruction?
Do you think that the one who made us all wants to see us falter and continue our whole lives to make wrong decisions, or would he intervene in many ways to keep us safe and happy? Does our God send angels to guard our activities and influence us for the better? Thousands of accounts of angelic help or prevention of disasters have been recorded through out the ages.
Where do we go when we die? It has been proven by scientist that when a person dies their body loses a small amount of weight. Though very small, this fragment of body weight has been attributed to the passing of each person's spirit form or life essence. Could our spirit go to the main source of life, the Great Spirit? Perhaps if that spirit is clean as a washed garment might be, it would be accepted into the main body of light. If the spirit force is soiled like an unclean garment, might it not be rejected and not allowed into the body of the Great Spirit?Yes, we are each given a choice to make as to the path we take. We can all read words on a page and choose to discard them or we can consider their meaning and gain clear and enlightened knowledge, and then pass on this understanding to others along the way. The choice is ours.
