248 God Is He on Whom the Existence of All Mankind Rests
1. God’s final work is not only to punish man but to arrange the destination of man. Moreover, it is to receive acknowledgment from all for all that God has done. God wants each and every man to see that all God has done is in the right and is an expression of God’s disposition; it is not the doing of man, least of all nature, that brought forth mankind. On the contrary, it is God who nourishes every living being among all things.
2. Without God’s existence, mankind can only perish and suffer the invasion of plagues, suffer the invasion of plagues. None will ever again see the beauteous sun and moon or the green world; mankind shall encounter only the frigid night and the inexorable valley of the shadow of death. God is mankind’s only salvation and hope and even more, God is He on whom the existence of all mankind rests. Without God, mankind will immediately become stagnant. Without God, mankind will suffer catastrophe and be trod upon by all manner of ghosts, even though none take heed of Him. God has done work that can be done by no other only in the hope that man repay Him with good deeds. God has done work that can be done by no other only in the hope that man repay Him with good deeds, only in the hope that man repay Him with good deeds.
