Yeah, I know the origin of the idea, I just don't see how this helps. But then it isn't the first time I've been confused
For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
Basically that Christ's work of salvation as a man restores all of creation through mankind is the point I was trying to make.
