Post 284 Man and Nature – Luke 12:22-24

’08 April 13 I was flipping through the TV channels and I came upon a Evangelical sermon and the guy made reference to and quoted…Luke 12:22-24

Luke 12:22 “And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
Luke12:23 The life is more that meat, and the body is more than raiment.
Luke12:24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow or reap, which neither have storehouses, or barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?”

I thought about it and my issues of manifesting and then it came to me that while there is a truth in the scriptures he quoted, it’s only a part truth. While the raven doesn’t sow, reap and store its food, it still has to find food and when it can’t find enough food in one place then it has to fly to another place or it starves. Also if the weather is too hot or to cold or to wet or too dry, then it must find shelter, or move to a place that is more bearable, in order for it to be able to live and find food and to rear its young.

It’s not just the raven, but all plants and animals are in the same boat. Everything feeds off of everything else… Everything is a consumer… This is not a creation without struggle, hardship, illness and death. Nature and all that is in it is not really different than Humans.

The only difference between Humans and nature is that Humans, with their technology, has the ability to act as God, to control nature, the plants and animals and even the very elements of the Earth. That also puts Humans at the top of the list in having the ability to create suffering, illness and death, not only with other forms of life but to themselves. Humans also have the ability to destroy all life on the Earth, including itself.
