The Good Shepherd

Mathematics is based on axioms and assumptions which help to establish the space within which theories and postulates are applicable. For example, human theories, postulates and even absolute laws about the Universe are derived from the human-view of the Universe. Other creatures may have their theories and postulates based on their perspectives. So, the mathematician must establish an axioms and assumptions space within which his or her theories and postulates are applicable. This presentation is neither a theory nor a postulate. However, the nature of the subject requires that I establish the axioms and assumptions space within which it is presented. The axioms and assumptions are as follows:
Axiom: work was done to create the Universe. So, based on the force-work duality in Nature, the Universe was created by an Ultimate Force. This Ultimate Force is an Energy Source. Humans are currently not privy to the precise details of the processes by which the Universe was created in its entirety. Consequently, there are various accounts of Creation.
Assumptions: the God of Christians is the same as the Ultimate Force that created the Universe. Christians consider the preceding statement as Truth. However, some other religions consider their respective God as the Creator of the Universe. These variations in the identity of the Ultimate Force is due to variations in perceptions. So this is a faith-based assumption. The God being referred to in this presentation is the God of Christians.
- The Holy Bible contains the Directives from the God of Christians. This is also a faith-based assumption since other religions have their respective Holy Books.
- The KJV Bible is a reasonably accurate version of the Holy Bible.

Now, what are the fundamental pre-occupations in God's-Space? The Creator (God) is pre-occupied with the Power of Ownership and the creatures are pre-occupied with the Power of Usership. Harmony between both pre-occupations results in a peaceful God's-Space. Disharmony between both pre-occupations results in a sinful God's-Space. Harmony of both pre-occupations implies that God's Promises are kept and God's Directives are obeyed. In other words, sins are disobediences of God's Directives. God's Promises are never issues because they are always kept in a truly God's-Space. There are many types of sins and most are inter-related. However, the Bible reveals very early and clearly the absolute directive that is the primary pre-occupation of God.

Genesis chapters 1 and 2 established God's primary directive. The Biblical story of creation is about Care: the Custodianship and Care for Space and its contents. We read about God creating the Garden of Eden a symbolism of the ideal space. We read about God putting Adam and Eve in charge of the Garden of Eden as custodians of this paradise.

Then disaster struck. Adam and Eve sinned (Genesis 3:6). Their sin (called the original sin by many theologians) was essentially disobedience of God's Fundamental Directive: Care for Space and its contents. This disobedience is a misdeamenor by the modern standard set by humans. However, God was very angry according to the Bible and He punished Adam and Eve severely (Genesis 3:16-24). Humans are still serving some aspects of this punishment.

The severity of God's punishment for what seems to be a simple disobedience may lead one to believe that He is pre-occupied with sins and that this pre-occupation with sin led to the severe punishment. However, a deep contemplation of God's reaction after Adam and Eve sinned, reveals that His anger was primarily due to the failure of the custodianship He had accorded Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:22-24). He no longer trusted them to care for the garden of Eden. So He drove them out of Eden and put Cherubims whom He trusts, in their place.

We read about this duality of betrayal of trust and the removal of the untrusted (collectively or individually) from space in key stories of the old testament particularly when it concerns caring for space and its contents. The story of Noah in which God regretted creating humans (except Noah and his family) for they had filled the Earth with violence and all sorts of wickedness (Genesis 6:5-11); the destruction of pharoah and his men (Exodus 14:26-29); the removal of the generation of stubborn Hebrews who wandered in the wilderness and were unable to get to the promised land where a new settlement and custodianship was established; etc. This sinful nature of humans continued to impair their ability to be good custodians of space even in the promised land and beyond and God's angst for sins continued until He came up with a Master Plan.

This Master Plan was to send Jesus to pay the price in total once and for all on the cross. Once Jesus' crucifixion and ressurrection was complete, God's pre-occupation with sins ceased for He had established a channel for the remission of sins (Luke 24:45-49). The pre-occupation was not particularly directed to sins but to the role sins play in preventing the proper custodianship of space and its contents which is His Fundamental Directive and His Primary Excercise of The Power of Ownership of God's-Space.

Over Two Thousand years After God sent Jesus and provided the channel for the remission of sins, the sinful nature of humans continue to disrupt the Care of Space and its contents. However, custodianship of God's-Space and its contents is no longer permanently endangered because the crucifixion and Ressurection of Jesus, in addition to providing a channel for the remission of sins, established permanent custodians of God's-Space with knowledge of the Way: The Good Shepherd and His flock of sheep (John10:14-18).
