The Lord our God is one Lord.

Descartes really got it right with his famous “I think therefore I am” – it is the only thing that remains in the human mind when we doubt our own existence.  It is also related to the concept that God created us in his Own image. God is the Great I am.  He tells Moses “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.” It is related to the Bible name of God YHWH

“I am” is the first person singular form of the Hebrew verb “to be”. ‘YHWH’ is the third person singular, thus meaning “He is” or “He exists.” The first or third person of the same verb was used by the writers of the Hebrew text of the Old Testament, depending upon whether they wanted to emphasize His own or man’s own perspective.

Stephen Hawking wrote: “Events before the Big Bang are simply not defined, because there’s no way one could measure what happened at them. Since events before the Big Bang have no observational consequences, one may as well cut them out of the theory and say that time began at the Big Bang.” Essentially, there was never a Big Bang that produced something from nothing. No Big Bang but, there certainly was God and He is all that counts.

In the beginning there was neither time nor space just the great Void and God. God was and is outside of time and space. He was the mind behind the universe – a mind that dwarfs Stephen Hawking’s mind. What Hawking believes – that something cannot be produced from nothing – does not count and is inconsequential. God existed before time and space.

John 1 1-5 King James Version (KJV)

  1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
  2. The same was in the beginning with God.
  3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
  4.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
  5. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Man is created by God “in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” – a conversation being held between the Holy Trinity-God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. – God thinking. Being made in the Image of God does not mean that God possesses human-like features – no God is NOT an old man sitting on a throne in Heaven. Man is Godlike when he thinks and loves – Love and the faculty of reason enables man to become most God-like in that he develops the spirituality to partially grasp the nature of God’s ultimate reality. God is LOVE!

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.

    You seem to ignore Gdo did not just say “I am” like there are millions of people saying or replying today and in previous years “I am”. God said
    Ehyeh asher ehyeh (I will be that I will be – I Am that I am),

    • God said to Moses ” I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.” Exodus 3:14. I was thinking of the first person “I am” and the Third person “He is” – in Hebrew the YH to YHWH. I think there is a connection in Descartes to the idea that God is within us all. The “I am” in us is the image of God in which God created us. I have been reading a lot of Wisdom tradition literature and it has influenced me.
