Round ‘N Round

According to the Bible, human beings were created in God’s image.

Everything continues what it is by replicating itself. An apple seed doesn’t sprout a chicken, a goldfish doesn’t give birth to cow (just crackers), and birds don’t lay flower blossoms in their nests. All the Earth, in terms of living things (and for this post I’m going to keep it simple and not go into extinction or genetic modifications), perpetuates itself by bringing forth of its own kind. Each living thing has characteristics that together make it what it is, its innate properties. A duck will do what ducks do, a corn stalk will do what corn stalks do and so on.

Is God good?

Yes.

How do we know?

Is God bad?

Yes.

How do we know?

Are human beings good and bad?

How could they be otherwise?

Is goodness learned, or is it innate? Is badness learned, or is it innate? I’m not talking degrees of goodness or badness, just whether it is there from the beginning.

If those characteristics are indeed within each of us from the beginning, as they are in God, who made us in Their image, then what is the purpose of the Bible, of religion?

To sway us more towards the good ? (Again, I’m speaking in general here, not specifics.)

If it is to foster goodness, then is it for our sake alone, or is it meant as a gateway or a conduit that allows us to connect on a gut level with our fellow human beings?

If ultimately, we all connected because of goodness, what would be the purpose? Complete harmony?

If we then had complete harmony, would God dwell among us, within and without?

But if we are the children of God, is that even possible, for God has both good and bad characteristic, is in fact, the originator of them.

“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”’

Isaiah 45:7

“And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.”

Genesis 1:11

“And God said, Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kinds, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth after their kinds: and it was so.”

Genesis 1:24
