Number 6: The Intent of Immanent Souls

What was the intent
of these immanent souls?

Desiring and committing such flagrant atrocities
it almost implies we were created for this

Yet, in transcendent creation
these souls bear
the image of
poised to act and live
and love and know
and desire and pursue

The wholly pre-eminant Creator.

Q & A 6

Q. Did God create people
so wicked and perverse?

A. No.
God created them good1 and in his own image,2

that is, in true righteousness and holiness,3

so that they might

truly know God their creator,4
love him with all their heart,
and live with God in eternal happiness,

to praise and glorify him.5
