Did God Sketch the Universe into Existence?

Or did He carefully draw the Universe into Existence? To me, God's mind is so Infinitely powerful that He would need neither. He just did it, and it will remain the most mysterious action to humans in history.

Humans have some skill in language but isn't language just a subdivision of drawing and isn't drawing a subdivision of what we do not completely know. Our word, the Bible and other Sacred Texts, are just part of finding the Ultimate Truth about God and the Universe.

If God only spoke the Universe into existence, does this mean that the mute are ungodly? I believe not and I believe the mute can reach a higher level of consciousness of God, the Universe, and the afterlife then many, if not all, other "speakers."

Would you say a blind person is going to Hell because he or she has not read the Bible? That blind person probably understands drawings, a higher level of consciousness than understanding the language of words, better than those who read the Bible each day.

anything is possible.

Carefully drawing i think. still is, unless God retired. Although, perhaps he only puts the drawing utensils down one day a week.

Do drawings represent words? Or do words represent drawings? I believe that God drew the Universe into existence as drawing represents all of motion, word-writing or otherwise. God is still drawing the Universe; God was, is, and will be for Eternity. There is no fixed state, everything that God created was, is, and will always remain alive.

Would you consider God an Artist, Mathematician, Philosopher, or Linguist? I would consider Him an amalgam of all four and more, faster than the speed of light.

spoke it into existence according to the Word of Truth.

But aren't thoughts, words spoken, and words written, drawings before they become words? I am speaking from the attempt to perceive God at the highest supernatural level where the Universe is one drawing that describes all motion and words are only subdivisions of this drawing.

I think you can goto Heaven even if you've never read the bible once.

By that rationale, every devout muslim (not radical) who worships the one god, and prays to him more often than christians do, are more obediant to the rules of their religon than christians (praying 5 times, ramadan no food/drink/smoke til sundown), and whose holy books were written by people who were inspired by two previous religions, judaism and christianity, would all goto hell despite living pious moral lives abiding by the laws of God.. hey wait a sec -- all 3 are monotheistic and all 3 share the same basic commandments of not stealing/killing/lying etc.

But if you feel you have to know the bible to goto heaven, then a blind person could easily be given the gospel on spoken word DVD, have it put in for them, maybe even do it theirselves after a while, and HEAR the word as it was HEARD when it was first SPOKEN, before any of it ever was written down.

to hear the word came before seeing the word.

Read about Helen Keller; born blind AND deaf, she knew God from within - she did not know a name but she knew the comfort, the love, acceptance, and companionship....

Even imprisoned in her dark silence she knew she was not alone.

Does God value a drawing more than the words used to describe it? I believe He values drawings more as words are always open to interpretation and circular in reasoning. A drawing exists in its true nature compared with the vagueness of words.

Did images (drawings) come before words? Or vice versa? From the human perspective? From God's perspective?
