Aliens and the Bible – The Imperfection of Perfection
God is perfection?
Yes, its true, I love to question everything. I do it in the name of science and I do it in the name of perfection. How is an individual to become more perfect? My Christian faith beckons me follow Jesus Christ, the only perfect human being ever to exist. My scientific mind says to tear things apart, examine and analyze it, rebuild it, make it better somehow.
Come Sail Away!Ah… The Brain Drain Quark is full throttle once again. Must always this paradoxical enigma exist? Convulsions lick at the heels of sanity as the insane oracle states its business. I hear the enigma cry out, “Perfection ye say! The perfection of imperfection would be closer to the truth me thinks, eh mate?”
Observe: Psalms 50:2 – Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.
The perfect creator, our Lord thy God. Well, I’m sure these next few lines of intellectual insanity are going to ruffle a few feathers, but… my calling in life seems to be to tempt fate.
Lord forgive me, but remember, you did give me freewill and you supplied me with a brain to reason with and you did give me the gift of imagination, so now I use these gifts in search of perfection. I’m sure that once I walk through those pearly gates of Heaven I will know all there is to know about these things. So I ask the question, “Is God perfect?”
Just can’t seem to leave the lid on Pandora’s box closed! All my life I have been preached to that God is ‘perfection incarnate‘. True, I as a seemingly insignificant human being, among thousands of galaxies and billions upon billions of planets, dare ask the question,
“Is God Perfect?”
I may not have read the Bible as much as some, but I read and try to assimilate as much of it as my level of understanding will allow. My tendency is to be a little sloppy while slurping my milk. I can reflect back onto numerous occasions when I’ve read something about God that just didn’t click in the perfect department.
As usual I will meditate heavily upon such things and it’s time to exonerate my mind of the
The granddaddy of all questions to me is “why would a perfect God create imperfect things?” Is it that perfection cannot exist without imperfection, as it would seem that good cannot exist without evil?
Why create Satan? Did not God in His perfection, who knows the number of hairs on your head, foresee that Satan would rebel?
Why did not God foresee that man would become corrupted by the fallen angels and leap to mankind’s defense instead of waiting around to wipe it out with a forty day flood?
I understand. You’re thinking to yourself that I’m inherently wicked for writing such as this. No, I’m not evil, nor do I wish to anger staunch Christians who refuse to open their minds to the possibility that what they believe might not be perfect! Again I remind you that I’m a Christian as well. I profess the name of Jesus Christ to be my Lord and Savior.
Obviously we don’t have a grasp of God’s full plan. Or perhaps there’s another explanation. What if God’s not perfect?
Break out the calculator folks, “fingers and toes are no match for the number of possibilities leaping into existence here.” Just because an almighty entity can create life with a word doesn’t necessarily mean its perfect. Let’s examine this a little closer. Suppose you woke up tomorrow and discovered that a new kid was on the block that spoke from the heavens and did wondrous miracles of healings and such. This entity proclaimed that He was our God’s master and he proves it. Would you believe this new god to be perfect?
More than likely most of us Christians would be mad about the new kid on the block and wish him gone. A new kid on the block would destroy our wonderful dream and the security it brings. I, for one, do not wish to live in a dream world, but wait in readiness for the untold hour.
Observe: Psalms 119:96 – I have seen a limit to all perfection, but thy commandment is exceedingly broad.
My reading and observations lead me to believe that God is not perfect. The more I read of the Bible, the more I perceive human traits in the actions of God. Again I propose these actions to be those of extraterrestrials. Lets take for example the Ten Commandments. If I were an alien observer to a planet that I had seeded in hopes of saving my own dying race; these would be the same commandments from me.
Just what would a alien super-race say to the primitive creatures of the planet Earth who have barely scratched the surface of space travel, “please don’t shoot me I’m your cousin Darwin?”
Observe: 1 Corinthians 13:10 – but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.
Do not take this statement lightly for it is of the realm within, ‘The Brain Drain Quark‘. Perfection creates imperfection, but imperfection passes away when perfection comes so perfection recreates imperfection, which cannot be, because perfection cannot create imperfection because imperfection cannot exist within the same relational space as perfection. Man does not exist in the same realm as God because man is imperfect. Jesus cannot exist in the same realm as man because God is perfect and man imperfect. Yet Jesus, the man, walked the earth. The Brain Drain Quark therefore concludes that God cannot be perfect since Jesus walked upon the earth!
