Problems appear as created by humans, just as solutions are presented by humans. The same humans, known to be creating problems, can be relied upon to create solutions, in other areas. This describes the nature of humanity, from time immemorial.
There is no easy solution to problem-handling, when clear in that humans are necessary for problem handling. This is just as all known problems affecting humanity, are caused by humans.
“Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’” (Genesis 1:26) (NIV).
A description of any problem in this world is a clear violation of the above Scripture. There is nothing ever created by God, found to be problematic, as affecting humanity. The answer to all problems in this world points to a failure to be effective in controlling the environment.
For instance, humans use pesticides, as an answer to quell the seemingly uncontrollable pests and rodents. The eradication of such pests is the quickest way, revealing failure to be in charge of what was dully placed under human’s responsibility.
Vanquishing other species is not controlling, but failure to exercise responsibility. Jesus said His disciples could control everything if having faith as little as a mustard seed.
Jesus displayed abilities, showing that there was nothing impossible with human beings. He easily healed the sick and controlled the raging seawaters. He also managed to feed thousands with a few loaves of bread and fish. Let us unpack reasons for failure, laying bare that failure is not associated with humans.
Many discoveries have shown the uniqueness of humanity, even without the import of the miracles of Jesus. This article can be accessed by thousands of people worldwide, being a miracle that did not manifest in Jesus’s time. The unprecedented speed of a jet, traveling across the world in few hours is another miracle, not having manifested during Jesus’s time.
