The Most Important Question in the Universe

bird-20475_640The most important question in the universe is this:
“Which came first, the chicken or the egg?”
Only that’s just how it’s written in code.
If you translate this question from the original Greek,
you’ll find it more properly phrased thusly:
“Which came first, God or human’s idea of God?”
Knowing the correct answer to this question
is the root of
correctly answering all others.
Is God our invention
or are we is?
Did we devise the idea of God
so we can tinker with His characteristics
to fit our evolving needs and
notions
or
is God complete in Himself, unchangeable,
preexisting
so that our job is to know Him
as He reveals to us
what He’s about and what He’s like?
Which came first? The worshiper or the worshiped?
Do we make Him up as we go
or are we just trying to catch up with Him?
Next time you’re in a debate with someone
remember the most important question in the universe
and ask.
Their answer will clear your pathway through the debate
by blowing the mist off the root of their answers.
Think I’m over-simplifying?
First things first, loved ones.
Test me on this.

    Good one, Lori! Sometimes verbiage is not required in order to tell the truth… such a simple answer to what our worldly-wise scholars would mumble on for decades! Thanks!
