The Nature of God
God is supreme, creator of the universe and of man. He has the power, force and energy to set the universe in motion and to implement His plan for man. God, unlike man, is not a slave to time. God does not look forward to the future, has no present and has no past. To God, time is stable. However time is not stable for man. To man, the instant of the present is instantly the past. Man cannot go back in time and see himself in motionless time in the same manner as looking at a photograph. To man, time is like riding in a fast convertible driven by God. Man sees the future coming at him in anticipation and then looks to the side and sees the present for an instant and then looks back at the past getting farther and farther away. Man then looks at God who is grinning at him, and man is helpless to do anything about it. Only God has power over time and he can manipulate it to suit himself.
