I am weary. I am disgusted. Now, I write.
In the beginning God… Genesis 1:1
It’s that simple, our introduction starts at the beginning. Although there has been much debate about what the actual beginning entailed, that is not to be covered in this post. Suffice it to say, that the Biblical record says that He was, and that He was there at the beginning. What does that mean to me, how can I apply that?
Just knowing that there is a God is important. Knowing He predates time is also important. I also know I was not there, and that helps me with my first answer to: “what does that mean to me?”; It means He most likely has experience and knowledge that I do not inherently have. We would favor that assumption for any other being making the same statement. I acknowledge that there is a possibility that He has or had some sort of experiential-pause-button that would turn off His perception and/or memory of events and/or experience, and then that that pause button could have been pushed thus limiting or precluding data from being collected. I am indeed assuming that there is no such button or, that if there is one, it was not pressed. (yes, other arguments are available here, I will not bother.)
Action: I will seek to determine if there is information I need that He has. Further, I will seek, since He is a God, to see if I have some sort of obligation to Him based on that information.
Note re: “I am weary. I am…” – I perceive that religionists and current Laodicean leadership have “boxed us in(to)” a false relationship with the God who was there at the beginning. The thing that I am both weary of and disgusted with is, to my thinking, the fulfillment of the prophecy of Revelation chapter 3 and verses 14-22. That is, a universal false/quasi-religious philosophy commonly know as Christianity. I believe the prophecy in toto. The apparent current condition(s)–that prophecy playing out in our common experience wearies and disgusts me. Maybe, although I am nothing, I can help remedy at least partially the ill result(s) of said condition.
