Pt 2: God's Plan

At this point some might say, 'How can His eternal plan have an order if it is eternal and has no beginning?' To this we must admit a sense of mystery. How can God exist eternally? Do we truly have the capacity to understand that? And if He exists eternally, is everything within Him eternal? Thus concluding His thoughts are eternal? The answer is that one cannot be eternal and have finite qualities. For example, 'God is eternal, but His thoughts are not, they come and go.' This is far more contradictory than what I have laid out. The qualities of an eternal being must be of the same nature to which they are attached. Some would then say, 'But we have temporary bodies and our souls are eternal in heaven or hell.' This is not altogether true. We have a beginning, a starting point, a forming in the womb, and God does not. We will live eternally in heaven or hell, but we do not and have not existed eternally, so our existence is still finite.

To restate it in a different manner: To make any facet of God finite robs him of His eternal quality. God is not completely eternal if His thoughts suddenly come to Him and leave when they are unnecessary. We, as sinful humans, are prone to take our finite qualities and project them on to God in an effort to better understand Him. However, we must always remember, God does not bear our image, but we bear His.

So it must be restated: The harmony and order of God's thoughts can be seen and proven by the harmony and order within the universe. God has so engrained Himself into every thing that exists that the smallest most microscopic creature bellows of God's harmonious perfection louder than ten orchestras of the loudest instruments. Anyone deaf to the outcries of creation must be so blind that Satan himself is their master; blinding them and enjoying their inability and imperfection. His enjoyment of their imperfection isn't solely because it makes them serve him, but because they willingly choose to make his job as the dark master all the more easier.
