My dear friends
i would appreciate your thoughts. perhaps these thoughts of the day are just new to me? It occured to me all of creation is an expression of Gods love and since God is love and can only love He must love His entire creation. there is no other way He could think of His creation. If we are to imitate God we should love all of His creation too. I think we should even love the enemies of our salvation. Don’t take me wrong. i think we should love the enemy of our salvation in that we should desire the best for them. We must know that they are our enemies and desire great evil for us with hell but it’s the purpose of our existence to imitate God and God is love and can only love. I hope this thread does not get bogged down on demons, believe me - there is noone who sees them as as big an enemy as me. Don’t misunderstand me. We should love the stars and plannets, meteorites, gases, rocks, dust and all created things in space. We should love our planet and all creatures on it and everything that makes up our planet. We should love Gods creation as God does and that does not mean we cannot use it for food or step on grass. We should use it as God intened- no more or less. If we eliminated sin we would know how to be good stewards of our world and use the wonderful things God has created for us appropriately I think. We all came from a small object which exploded in the big bang and produced our universe and all in it. In a way we are most really related to everything in our universe. I think the proper disposition is to see ourselves as a part of creation, not separate to it or superior to it. We should love all of creation. The more we love the less ulcers we get if you want a positive. What do you think and what are your thoughts?
