27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
To add to what I said above, we are inside the image created by God. We experience one frame at a time. Our best metaphor is a movie, yet we are
inside that image. With this said, how can we explain entropy? The moment of creation is followed by that light falling away. The observer
experiencing this moment of collision between wave collapse sees the local perspective as a frame of reference by location and relation to the whole.
Consider what it is like standing at the top of a winding staircase. The stairs close to you are large. As they fall away in space, the collapse by
perspective. Since time and space are one thing, we experience the whole like a reflection as it happens. All is relative.
Light reveals what it hits. While the light lasts, each of us are seen by God and fully known. As we are inside the image only, we ONLY see our
side. God sees both and knows Himself and us. We know ourselves, yet not God. God has no opposite, but we do. God is our opposite. This explains
1 Corinthians 13
12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
God is Eternal. We are mortal. The universe is immortal and will continue to cycle from expansion and contraction. Eternal things do not change.
Immortal things must change and move. Mortal things come and go. What is developed by the experience?
To answer this, we need to look to the image. An acorn has a 75 foot oak tree inside. The oak tree is not the acorn, but the information inside the
seed. Jesus said, "You must be born again." Why? Because your body is the tree and your salvation is the acorn. What God saves is the DNA you
The wool is pulled over the sheep's eyes. The Shepherd sheers the wool (Sin), washes it white as snow, then returns it as the new Robe (Body). We
create that new robe by what is gained by the experience. Entropy is a necessity, but for a very good reason. We are rising to new life from baptism
into the water. Consult the threads linked in my signature for more.
What did the Greeks know?
Amni - Stream of Water or River
Amnio - Greek "Bowl" or "Lamb"
"Denotes a thin, transparent, tough membrane lining and the fluid-filled cavity contains the embryo of reptiles, birds, and mammals [amniotes]; the
membrane around a fetus; diminutive of amnos, lamb; a bowl in which the blood of sacrificial victims was caught. Now used primarily to indicate the
membrane surrounding the fetus in utero. "

AMNE´STIA (ἀμνηστεία）Amnesty is a word used by the later Greek writers, and from them borrowed by the Romans, to describe the act or
arrangement by which offences were forgotten, or regarded as if they had not been committed, so that the offender could not be called to account for
That image created by the information (WORD) is not you. Look in a mirror. Is it you or are YOU casting the light?
