Genesis 45

14 Then he threw his arms around his brother Benjamin and wept, and Benjamin embraced him, weeping. 15 And he kissed all his brothers and wept over them. Afterward his brothers talked with him.

Richard: Jacob and Benjamin were definitely not un-social distancing!

Jeremiah 19

14 Jeremiah then returned from Topheth, where the Lord had sent him to prophesy, and stood in the court of the Lord’s temple and said to all the people, 15 “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘Listen! I am going to bring on this city and all the villages around it every disaster I pronounced against them, because they were stiff-necked and would not listen to my words.’”

Richard: It could be said that we have brought the current situation on ourselves by electing leaders who do not honor our God given constitutional rights: see the latest Richard Urban Show: Will the Boston Tea Party Happen This Memorial Day Weekend?

Truth and Universal Law

Eternal Truth

The eternal word, truth, or divine wisdom pre-existed the creation of the universe. The Word is all-pervasive; it guided the creation of the universe and continues to function in the principles of nature. It operates through physical, moral and spiritual laws. For some, truth is to be grasped by reason. For others, its essence is the Word, which is manifested completely only in Christ, the perfect man. The Word gives the universe its purpose. This touches the mystery of why God created the universe. As the Absolute Being, omnipotent and omnipresent, what did God gain by creating something apart from Him? The texts in the last group suggest that the primary theme was love. Love, which arises only in relationship, is imprinted in the cosmos by the pervasive duality of plus and minus, male and female. God, too, to experience the joy of love, would create objects apart from Himself with which to have a relationship. Here lies the purpose of creation, the root Idea in the mind of God that lies behind the blueprint of creation.

1. In the Beginning Was the Word

He has created the heavens and the earth with
truth.
Qur’an 16.3

When Heaven creates a thing, it gives each
thing a principle of truth.
Chu Hsi (Confucianism)

The sun and the moon are made punctual, the
stars and the trees adore, and the sky He hath
uplifted; and He hath set the measure.
Qur’an 55.5-7

The l ord by wisdom founded the earth;
by understanding he established the heavens;
by his knowledge the deeps broke forth,
and the clouds drop down the dew.
Proverbs 3.19-20

By Truth is the earth sustained,
and by the sun are the heavens;

By Order the gods stand
and Soma is set in the sky.
Rig Veda 10.85.1 (Hinduism)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word
was with God, and the Word was God. 1 He
was in the beginning with God; all things were
made through him, and without him was not
anything made that was made. In him was life,
and the life was the light of men. The light
shines in the darkness, and the darkness has
not overcome it.
John 1.1-5

This, [in the beginning] was the only Lord of the
universe. His Word was with Him. This Word
was His second. He contemplated. He said, “I
will deliver this Word so that she will produce
and bring into being all this world.”
Tandya Maha Brahmana 20.14.2 (Hinduism)

He [Christ] is the image of the invisible God,
the first-born of all creation; for in him all things
were created, in heaven and on earth, visible
and invisible, whether thrones or dominions
or principalities or authorities—all things were
created through him and for him. He is before
all things, and in him all things hold together.
Colossians 1.15-17

The l ord created me at the beginning of his
work,
the first of his acts of old.
Ages ago I was set up,
at the first, before the beginning of the earth…
When he marked out the foundations of the
earth,
then I was beside him, like a little child; 2
I was daily his delight,
rejoicing before him always;
rejoicing in his inhabited world,
and delighting in the sons of men.
Proverbs 8.22-31

In human practice, when a mortal king builds
a palace, he builds it not with his own skill but
with the skill of an architect. The architect
moreover does not build it out of his head, but
employs plans and diagrams to know how to
arrange the chambers and the doors. Thus God
consulted the Torah and created the world.
Genesis Rabbah 1.1 (Judaism)

The Tao has its reality and its signs but is with-

out action or form. You can hand it down but
you cannot receive it; you can get it but you
cannot see it. It is its own source, its own root.
Before heaven and earth existed it was there,
firm from ancient times. It gave spirituality to
the spirits and to God; it gave birth to heaven
and to earth. It exists beyond the highest point,
and yet you cannot call it lofty; it exists beneath
the limit of the six directions, and yet you can-
not call it deep. It was born before heaven and
earth, and yet you cannot say it has been there
for long; it is earlier than the earliest time, and
yet you cannot call it old.
Chuang Tzu 6 (Taoism)
