‘In the beginning there was the Logos . . .”

“In the beginning God created heaven and earth.”

     Every mind, starting with the divine Mind, our Father in heaven, has a logos through which it communicates with other minds. God the Father communicates and rules over other  minds and all creation through His Logos. The Logos of the Father Mind declares and proclaims the Mind that has given Him birth. He is perfectly equal in nature and essence coeternal and co-reigning with the Father. Human beings also communicate through their logos’ which includes their words, by writing, orally, and with  expressions of their body. The human mind is imperfect and subject to increase` which also increases the human logos.

     The beginning of the Book of Genesis states: “In the beginning God created heaven and earth.” This beginning of the works of God constitute truth; for it is true that in the beginning God did create Heaven and earth, and God is the beginning and the cause of all that exists on earth and in heaven

     John the Evangelist declares that “In the beginning there was the Logos”, which is also a true statement. The Father Mind and His Logos and Spirit are coeternal and undivided. The Logos is the true, faithful and accurate depiction of the Father. The ever existing and all-knowing  Father, gives birth to His Logos, who is coequal and coeternal with Him.  The Logos is the coeternal Truth because He accurately and faithfully depicts the Father. By beholding and understanding the Logos, we are able to understand through Him the Mind, whom He portrays accurately without excesses or omission.  St. John says about the divine Logos: “The Logos became flesh and dwelled among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the Only-begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

    We are living in an age of humanism and its fruits which include unbelief in a Creator with a purpose, the unreasonable exaltation of man and the descent into the folly of atheism. Imagining themselves to be filled with advanced knowledge which came not from God but from man, doing away with the idea of God they ignored man’s total dependence on God’s  providence.  
Of course man does not and cannot supply the world with food and water. God does. Man cannot energize the weather system and bring the rain, snows, dew and sunshine needed to grow crops.  God does. Without God’s sun, snow and rain, nothing would grow and no life could exist. Remove God’s power and everything would disintegrate, the sun would blink out, stars would disappear, heavenly bodies would fall, supplies of water and food would vanish, in fact we cannot even begin to imagine the loss of God’s power.  For God’s power holds the world together and maintains perfect order according to His will.

      Man’s meager power is feeble and limited, and given the need, he may encounter an idea, think about it, then decide in his will to fulfill it. It may take some effort depending on its magnitude, and he may have to  confer with other men to get help so that he might accomplish his task. How feeble are man’s efforts in comparison to God who as soon as God wills, it is already accomplished. To accomplish some task, man always need to increase his feeble power by assistance from others.

     The all-powerful God said: “Let there be light and there was light.” No plans, no assistants, no effort.  God wills and it is already accomplished because his will and power are equal. God wills for matter to be existent and it is done. God decided to separate darkness and light, by calling the darkness night and the light day, and it was so. 

God is faithful in His dealings with men, and remains ever the same.  However we change and  our souls are by nature philosophical seeking to acquire knowledge. Many are interested in answers to questions such as these: Why do I exist? What is my purpose in being here? What is God’s purpose for creation? Such questions arise in the souls of men because they concern our nature and men shun ignorance and crave knowledge.
