DOES GOD OWE US?






According to LifeSiteNews, while speaking to crowds at the Vatican, June 7, 2017, Pope Francis declared that “God cannot be God without man:

·       Dear brothers and sisters, we are never alone. We can be far, hostile; we can even say we are ‘without God.’ But Jesus Christ’s Gospel reveals to us that God cannot be without us: He will never be a God ‘without man’; it is He who cannot be without us, and this is a great mystery! God cannot be God without man: this is a great mystery!

Instead, this is a great heresy. God was certainly God before He created the world along with man, and from all indications, He was not languishing without us.

Is this unbiblical proclamation significant? Will it affect our relationship with God? Certainly! For one thing, God requires that we worship Him in “spirit and in truth” (John 4:22-24). When we worship Him with the belief that we have satisfied God’s need to be God, we are failing to worship and relate to Him as He wants us to do.

For another thing, that idea that “God needs us” can lead to boasting and arrogance – the very thing that God had purposely eliminated through His grace to the undeserving (Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Corinthians 1:26-29). Admittedly, the Pope’s claim is very humanly appealing and self-exalting. Therefore, many cults make use of it and preach that “God also depends on us.”

To guard against such hubris, Scripture instructs us that we are unable to give God something that He requires to make Himself complete:

·       Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?”  “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” (Romans 11:33-35)

If we have given God the gift of completeness, He owes us. Instead, He wants us to understand that grace and salvation are perfectly free gifts. Jesus didn’t die for us because He owed us but because He loved us.

When we believe this way, God will humble us. Jesus explained:

·       …For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” (Luke 18:14)

  1. Everything in the universe is running down or being pushed up by that which is running down. The universe is like a shaken bottle of water. The water represents energy; the air, probability; the bottle itself, the limitation of impossibilities; and, the bubbles represent information. Matter is called "alpha code information". All information is trying to undifferentiate back into nonexistence. It's all laws of the universe; and, pursuit of the down gradient is the true will."

    The infinitesimal point nothingness, . , is rastered by time into timespace, U , which exerts its oneness in one direction, / , stirs closed circuitry, O , that all going the same way, vO^XvO^, clashes, a Big Bang, X , forcing confluency, = , of the differentiated back into undifferentiation to nonexistence.

    Critics have criticized that the exertion of the oneness is equal on both sides. The answer to that is that as this manifestation happens the value of pi is going from zero to higher values, thereby leaving one side of each circuit more pressured than the other, thus, the circuit circulates. Also, the friction of the circuitry is from the Planck's volumes that compose everything. Nothing can be smaller than Planck's volume. Without this friction there would be no consciousness.

    Differentiation causes consciousness. That which is differentiated enough is fully conscious; and, that from which things are differentiated is thereby differentiated, and thus energy is eternally conscious. This process of creation occurs in the infinite dimensions of the universe every Planck's time, causing energy to be eternally conscious, God. In 1John1:5 it says, "God is light", meaning God is energy. If we were energy we would never sleep. We are only information, and thus we are capable of losing consciousness, and even becoming nonexistent. These facts are consequences of the first and second laws of thermodynamics.

    The universe is like a shaken bottle of water. The water represents timespace, energy the Father, "the substance of things hoped for"- Heb11:1. The air represents probability, energy the Holy Spirit, "the evidence of things not seen"- Heb11:1.The bottle itself represents the limitation of impossibilities. The shaking is the one substance exerting its oneness in one direction stirring closed circuitry, represented by the bubbles, that there be something to move out of the way and fill in behind, that all circulating the same way repel, by the basis of Planck's volume, "the stone which the builders rejected" - Mat21:42, energy the Son, administering orthogonality that not only pushes for confluence for undifferentiation but temporarily blocks the processes of undifferentiation. But, by the second law of thermodynamics undifferentiation is naturally inevitable, centripetal undifferentiating greater than centrifugal orthogonal blocking. Each bubble eventually ceases to exist having its original eternal nonexistence restored. What is it that God took away from us that He didn't give us, therefore that He owes us back? NONEXISTENCE!

  2. Miguel, - interesting comment! I am very interested in science. I always got good grades at it in school and have to deal with it alot in my work (as an architect). But what is not clear to me in your comment is that when you use the word 'NONEXISTENCE' are you referring to what will happen to us (some people interpret hell that way) or is that your view of God ? np
