Thought is a Gift from God
Do we really think that the power of thought "just evolved"?
Where did this magnificent ability come from? Was it just random evolution, with
no guiding hand behind it? Or was there a purpose when God said, "Let
us make people in our image, to be like ourselves. They will be masters
over all life - the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, and all the
livestock and wild animals"? [Genesis 1:26].
The Bible tells us that God created mankind - people like you and me - "in
his own image". And this means in God's spiritual image as, of course, God
is spirit, and does not have a physical body.*
Since God is a reasoning, thinking being, with a power of thought far beyond
our imagination, he has given us the power of thought as his gift. Unfortunately (?)
he has also given us freedom of choice, and on the whole, mankind has
chosen to go its own way and turned its back on God. In my opinion, this
is why there is such a mess in the world today.
And that's a rather long story which, for the moment, I won't go into here!
* (Note that God's son Jesus
did come into the world in
bodily form; born as a baby to Mary his mother. Jesus came to show us
what God was like, and lived his life here on earth as witness to the way
God is, and to show the Father's love. Jesus said, "Anyone who has seen
me, has seen the Father." John 14:9. )
