WHAT IF GOD HAD DECIDED NOT TO CREATE HUMANS?

 We humans must understand that the creation of mankind, at one point in time, was not even a thought in Godís mind.  There was a time, back there in eternity, when we did not even exist as a concept. Sometime in the distant past, the thought of creating humans arose in Godís mind. What brought about the concept we donít know with certainty. Was it the result of Satanís rebellion? Was it simply the desire to, in a sense, procreate and have a multitude of children? Was it both?

            We do know with certainty, though, that somewhere back in time, after much reflection and discussion, God the Father and the Son, concluded that they would go ahead with the most important project they had ever undertaken: the creation of mankind.

            What a providential decision that was for us humans. Were the angels involved in that decision? Did anyone oppose the decision? Was Satan, perhaps, one of the biggest opponents? Was it put on hold for a while? For a long time? Was the idea shelved and then reconsidered? For now, we can only speculate.

             There was a moment in time, though, when the verdict was issued and God announced to the angelic hosts that He would go ahead and create humans, and that they would be a part of a plan in which both the Father and the Son would be heavily and lovingly involved. Man was to procreate into billions and would be given the opportunity to live forever as Godís special children, with glory superior to that of the angels.       

            But what if God and Christ had finally decided to move on without us humans? What if they had set aside their plan and had given a ďno goĒ to our existence? What if the evidence weighed heavily against us, and another less risky and less involved plan had been adopted instead?

            The very thought that eons ago our very existence was in the balance is chilling. The fact that we may have been shelved as a possibility is distressing. If God had not created us, there might not have been any need for the universe, for this earth. Adam and Eve and all the great biblical figures would have never existed Ė we would have never existed.

            Today we take our existence for granted. We also take for granted that our children exist. We take for granted that we have a life to live rich with growth and experiences. We take for granted that life has great meaning for all of humanity. Yet, once-upon-a-time, it might have all been scrapped.      

             Thankfully, both the Father and the Son finally and joyfully accepted the idea of our existence and it was implemented. We exist because God and Christ decided to share their love with a new puny, insignificant, fragile being who would have to rely totally on their mercy. 

Our Great God loved us as a concept way back in time and, more than ever, He loves us as a present reality. The fact that they were pleased with their decision is amply reinforced by the fact that they were both willing to go through the agonizing sacrifice of Christ so as to save us all from eternal damnation. That alone strongly validates our worth before God and Christ.  We are, and will forever be, therefore, enormously important to God our Father and Christ our brother.
