Feast of Epiphany

The title is simply a way of indicating the date; I’m not actually going to talk about that here.

Had an interesting discussion on FB today, with a friend who is pretty much the definition of a true atheist – he really has no care about religion, although he does consider it all fairly useless superstition for himself.  He encourages those who have a path to follow their own path, so he and I are pretty cool with one another. 🙂

Anyway, one of the other Christians who are among his friends chimed in, and pointed out that in Genesis 1:28, God orders man(kind) to “replenish” the Earth.   Now he has some other interesting theories, but I’m not going to get into those here.

Replenish, by definition, means to restore to the former level or condition.  That’s a fascinating word, isn’t it?  Particularly in this context.

I love how God makes us think. 🙂
