In the Beginning

The Bible tells us "in the beginning, God created the heavens (plural) and the earth (singular)"

Many heavens, one earth.

One earth.

One earth. No other.

How unique we humans are! Whatever different kinds of creatures God made in the entire universe, only humans were god-breathed and made to "become like us" as the Godhead said when he created Adam.

Whether folks from another planet, or angels, or lions or tigers or bears...only humans were made to contain the fullness of God and in the end to "become like him because we will see Him as He is." Who knows what this means? And when St Paul says" great is the mystery of godliness: God was seen of angels" who knows what it means? What is this thing we know about God? Who knows? But it is a great glory we will understand in the fullness of time?

1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. 1 Timothy 3:15-16

1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 1 John 3:1-3
