If, as some people believe, we were created from the ape,
Who created the ape?
If, as some people believe, we were created from a "big bang,"
Who caused the "big bang?"
Some people live their lives as though they are apes living in a jungle
Of big noises refusing to listen to the soft voice of God.
Some people walk around as in a "whirlwind" with no direction
Falling prey to whatever master can control them.
Who do you listen to and what noises are you making?
If you are an ape, by what "current" do you survive?
If you are part of a "big bang," what "current" creates your energy?
If you are a child of God, how can society know?
What do you profess to be: an ape, a big bang, or a child of God?
If our spirit arises to be with God (water becomes as vapor);
If our flesh returns to the earth (flesh becomes as dust);
Does not the cycle start over again?
Therefore, I conclude, God is eternal!
Where will you spend eternity?
That depends upon what "ifs" you believe.
