Why should God love man?

Thepfuhouvi Solo

Love is a spiritual characteristic of good conscience, alive; living, moral, having sense of right and wrong that makes man and woman honorable persons.

Now, to get into the core of the subject, it is necessary to be definite as to the God we are talking about; for, Gods are many: Hinduism alone has 33 millions Gods and Goddesses and most of the Gods require proper appeasement.     

The God referred to specifically for this Composition is the  monotheist Judi-Christian masculine God YAHWEH known as JEHOVAH, the  creator of Heaven and Earth, of Adam  and Eve, of Abraham and Noah and everything in the Cosmos and claims the most high God.  

No one made Him. God isn’t made up of anything; not even with recently discovered sub-atomic ‘Higgs Boson’ or ‘God Particle’. Astronomic Scientists say the inter-stellar spaces of the Universe are filled with invisible still undiscovered ‘dark matter’. God is not made up of invisible ‘dark matter’; He is wholly of the Spirit of God. He was there from the beginning, pre-existing the Universe. There was even no Time and Space before Him. The Spirit of God was over the dark emptiness. He created the Universe out of nothing. ‘Nothing’ can’t create anything out of nothing: God alone created everything in the Universe out of nothing:

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was Light. God saw that the light was good and he separated the light from the darkness”: Genesis 1: 1-4.

The New Testament Bible is more pointed on the Issue, Johan 1: 1-3:

“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made’, without him nothing was made that has been made”.

It must have been meaningless to most in the first century people to hear what John has written in the beginning sentences of his Gospel. John’s words were more revolutionary than Darwin’s Origin of Species; the difference is that the world wasn’t as educated and knowledgeable in the first century as it is today.

For a long time people did not know why the Moon waxes and wanes; today billionaires have started to tour the Space and soon, within a generation, rich Tourists would start to visit the Moon on holiday: there are more billionaire today than can be counted by a sincere income Tax Police!

The Bible had the knowledge of the creation of the Universe long before Science came to understand the origin of the Universe billions years ago through a stupendous explosion of a Black Hole, -a Big Bang Theory- most Scientists, Mathematicians, Physicists, Astronomers, and even Theologians with science background, accepts today.

In principle the story of creation of the Universe in the Bible, and the Origin of Universe described by Scientists is the same. Scientists say there are many other Universes outside the one we are in; some new ones are being born and old ones die out; of course that takes billion of years. The Scientists say our Universe is still expanding at speed of light! John 5: 17 says: “My father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working”

The Theory of the origin of Universe by a Big Bang is the result of observations, calculations and measurements with powerful satellite Telescopes revolving high up in space in vacuum, worked by Scientists, Mathematicians and Physicists of many countries over centuries.        

Up to the 20th century Science claimed: “Nothing can come out of nothing”, but today science has found Albert Einstein’s mC2 = E is true: It is God alone that can make something out of nothing. The Big Bang is a result of cosmic forces God set up in the nature of the Universe; God is Omniscient, Omnipotent, and Omnipresent.

He God isn’t made up of any sub-atomic ‘God Particle’ nor is He composed of still undetected, supposed ‘dark matter’ most scientists believe fill the entire inter-stellar spaces of the Universe. Most knowledgeable Astronomers, and an increasing number of learned Theologians too, surprisingly subscribe to the origin of the Universe billion of years ago by the Big Bang and expanding at an almost unimaginable speed of light at one hundred eighty six thousand and three hundred miles per second or at 2,98,080 kilometre per second!

The stellar bodies of the Universe aren’t haphazardly strewn; they are organized and designed for Beauty and Joy. One of the finest expressions of the English language possibly is: ‘A thing of beauty is a joy for ever’ of John Keats; God is Truth, Beauty and Joy Forever. When Light, Water, Plants and Animals -one after the other- were commanded into existence in  Time and Place of their kind, God said they are ‘Good’: lastly, Adam  and Eve were created on the seventh instance, and God said, they are ‘very good’; and God ‘blessed them’.

God created Adam first out of dust in the ground and breathed into his nostril to life. God didn’t want Adam lonely; “It is not good for Man to be alone”, God said and He formed a woman, Eve out of Adam for him. They were put in the Garden of Eden to care for and look after it.

Adam and Eve didn’t live their infancy; boyhood or girlhood they didn’t undergo or had teenage experiences. They were created and brought into the world without grown-up sophistication.

They had no house to live in; they slept on bare ground, perhaps in cave. They probably did not know how to make fire to burn the animal they stoned or clubbed to dead or to burn the birds they trapped for food. They had no fire-place, no pots, no plates, no ladle or stools to sit on. There was no spear to kill animal and no knife to cut the meat.

Their food consisted mostly of fruits. The oddest thing about them was the absence of their belly button and lack cloths. They were naked. Most animals, birds and fishes live in groups for company and protection of their own kind. Adam and Eve had no neighbors; they had no company of their kind for mutual company and help or for protection.

This story of the creation of the Universe in the Bible may sound Fairy Tale: it is profound Story of creation of the Universe in child-like simplicity. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are the ways of God; He confounds the learned with His foolishness.  

This is the way God lives; Adam and Eve lived blissfully in the Garden of Eden in the manner of God’s own likeness. They were flesh and blood, only lower than Angels. They had no children.

Then Adam and Eve transgressed against God’s commandment and therefore God moved them out of the Garden. No longer would God walk with Adam and Eve or their descendants in general for all generations to come, except with Abraham, Noah and Enoch!

Yet Adam knows God and believed in Him even after he and Eve were separated from Him after the exile from the Garden. God loved them and their descendants. God loved them without expectation of anything from them in return except obedience to Him.    
The story Evolution of Species by Darwin, and Natural Selection by Wallace, are both understandable and reasonable in their explanations of the Origin of Species. It is unconscionable to the ears of modern man and woman.  Plants, Animals, even Geography of the land do change and vary over millions of years, but it is difficult to accept, change of terrestrial environment affects the spiritual mental qualities of Morality, Ethics, Sense of Justice, of Good and Evil, and Self-Sacrificial Values and Conscience in Man. Human behaviour could change but human nature hasn’t changed over the millenniums.

The Chimpanzee and Man share more than 98 per cent of the same Genes, but there are unconscionable differences of similarities between them: Animals have no conscience and that separates Animals and Men.  Plants and Animals appear evolved but the ‘breath of God’ in Man can’t evolve; it is designed.

The acceptance of the existence of God, Yahweh [Jehovah], who created Heaven and earth; the God, that isn’t made with human hands or made of elements that wears out with age, thieve steals and enemy destroys; the desire to obey and honor God only and alone, gets man granted the gracious love of God, Beauty, Truth and Joy Forever for free!
