Why does the Creator create?
Interesting question. Any thoughts?
That professor in that video i linked tells us that the reason why man exists is because of love, man is a target for God's love.
I don't remember where, but somewhere in scriptures is says that everything was made for God.
Watch that video.
The one single question that blows my mind 1,000,000,000 light years away.
Is not really why does He create, but how is it that God even exists in the first place?
How does God exist? How does creation exist? That's what blows me away...
I think about man, how man was made in the image and likeness of the unoriginate God, and I marvel when I think about how my spirit, my reasoning faculty, the soul, actually came from the unoriginate God.
And I think about how much different my spirit is from that unoriginateness, the Pantocrator.
I realize that if my sin, my darkness was gone, I would be in perfect Theosis with Him.
Then I realize how God is Jesus Christ. And it blows my mind even more.
Remember these words though:Psalm 131:1
Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.
I think that David is warning us about thinking to much about these things.
