Comment on GC Votes to Revise SDA Fundamental #6 on Creation by Ron Coleman.
â€œAll that I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for what I have not seen.â€ — Ralph Waldo Emerson, Author, Poet, and Philosopher
Once one realizes how little any of us really knows of the past we are free to listen to speculation without feeling threatened – for Jesus left no doubt about the Big issue; the broad (but not very detailed) outline describing our origin and our future.
The more one learns the more one suspects that we are all going to have a lot of surprises when we have the opportunity to look back in time and see clearly how things really happened, (and I believe we will have that opportunity one day).
So leave some room for Mystery â€“ both in the past and the future. There is nothing wrong with some Mystery in our lives. Indeed, it might be good for all of us to sense a little more of that at times â€¦
