TIME is here for OUR existence and convenients. As God's creatures we need such a realm, and cannot hardly imagine that there could be another.
God, for lack of a better human language expression to convey this, always was and always will be. He is eternal.
Time and creation and the universe and all that comes with it is a realm that WE NEED
. And thus we can only think of BEGINNINGS.
God is eternal. And human language can only express this with words that convey God as having no start, no other source, no other or higher creator or cause.
We just have to accept that. And the proper reaction is worship.
Some retreat in resentment at the thought of worship of God. Some of these people gladly worship Pink Floyd or worship Jimi Hendrix or worship some sports team or something else.
The reaction of awe and adoration towards God who always was and always will be and who is the ground of being, is reasonable and does our humanity health.
I reserve the right to be awe inspired in thanksgiving and worship towards an Eternal God whom I have learned to call "Father"
. My humanity is completed by my love for such a God.
Without due appreciation for God my very humanity is incomplete. I feel less
human to pretend that man is the highest life in existence, much less than have disdain for God the Source of life and being.
