Ouch

Sun, moon, heaven, stars, water, air, none of these had swerved from their order, but knowing the Word as their Maker and their King, remained as they were made, Men alone having rejected what is good, have invented nothings instead of the truth, and have ascribed the honour due to God and the knowledge concerning Him to daemons and men in the form of stones. Athanasius, "On the Incarnation"
Ouch. Leave it to us to mess up a good thing. And everything knows it:

For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
Romans 8:22 (NASB)

Good thing the rest of creation is not talking to us about this.

But wait. Look around at the world. Perhaps it is.

Hmmmm, very interesting....

Makes you wonder....what is the world really saying and doing to what God has created.....?

Something I need to chew on for thought...
