Or, could God have other things going on that we can’t possibly know about?
I know the question begs the answer, but what I mean is:
As Christians, we assume that we are the focus of God’s attention; that His divine wisdom in creating us was his only desire; that He is wholly and solely concerned for our salvation and eternal wellbeing. The human experience is God’s only concern.
It always seemed to me that an eternal and boundless god could have a multitude of “things going on”. God must have boundless love and endless creative powers; these, combined with His omnipresence and omnipotence…well, you get the picture. We could be a small or big part of a larger plan, or one of many plans.
It’s a tantalising prospect. A multitude of planets. Different forms of life or intelligence. The very essences of matter and reality. Time itself. All in the purview of an infinite God.
I know these thoughts have been entertained before, and the thread may have been done. Just thinking on screen, that’s all.
