When the world and the Universe came to exist, it was all creation of an Intelligent Designer.
When we look around us, we have to concede that His abilities are amazing.
To be the Creator, He must be the source of all that exists.
And this must include earth, space, life, time and consciousness.
Everything and anything that there is.
In the world as it He originally created it, there was no conflict between what is and what ought to be.
The people who lived in the world enjoyed a world in which everything occurred in complete harmony with itself as it was supposed to be.
That is where our desire for such a world comes from that I talked about in the last post.
What occurred to cause the disharmony?
We did it, the people.
We caused the perfect creation to fail.
We asked for it.
The perfect creation included perfect people with perfect free will.
Their free will allowed the first people to choose something other than what ought to be.
How could the people choose something that did not exist?
They were given a simple prohibition, not to do something, and at the same time they had the free will, the ability to choose what they wanted to do.
And so, suddenly, the ability to disobey emerged.
And the people were told that if they would do what they were not to do, there would be a fall from the reality.
The cosmos, the world around us, would no longer be as it ought.
But it would veer away from perfection and descend into an alternative reality.
One that could never retain its original perfection.
The people would enter in a world of death, decay and chaos, profaning the original plan.
When they disobeyed anyway, from that moment on, all humanity has become aware of the difference between is and ought.
The first people did not know the agony of what existed on the other side of that decision.
But their failure was still a statement to the Creator that His guidance and wisdom were no longer needed or wanted.
