Perfect Beings create another two beings but unifies them and says that they shall be created in our image—because the two are one—therefore, somehow, this suggests imperfection (?). There is no imperfection in unity.
- Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:26-27)
However, within the finite Universe that exists, insignificant egos are merely an infinitesimal component. The Universe itself is merely an equally insignificant amount of space within the infinity that surrounds it. Compared to the Infinite One’s dimensions, the Universe that teeny-weeny little individuals, with over-sized pinheads for egos, consider vast is virtually non-existent in terms of size. To suggest that there is even a comparison is tantamount to an insult—for what does the finite creation have compared to the Infinite Creator.
Amazingly, the Infinite Creator has seen fit to create what are virtually portions of dust given biological capacity to grow and reproduce and provide the power of intelligence to this creation—known as man (complete when male and female). Furthermore, man has the right to possess perfection by walking in unity—two individuals becoming as one man.
- “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is a profound one, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church; however, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. (Ephesians 5:31-33)
While not seemingly ironic for a celibate to view marriage as a profound mystery, for the married to view the relationship as such would be an irony indeed.
When speaking of imperfections and perfection, one observer concludes:
- Three things are too wonderful for me; four I do not understand: the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a serpent on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden. This is the way of an adulteress: she eats, and wipes her mouth, and says, “I have done no wrong.” (Proverbs 30:18-20)
The Imperfections Of The Perfect Are Non-Existent Except Within Imperfect Minds
