Think about it like a football; whereas, the pigskin is alive. and constitutes one whole self-aware life.
Then a rubber membrane comes to lie beneath the pigskin. The membrane is alive and again, constitutes one whole self-aware life, but cannot see the pigskin.
Then the air comes to be and fills the membrane. The air is alive and constitutes one whole self-aware life, but cannot see the rubber membrane, nor the pigskin.
Then, oddly enough the air begins to create mass within itself, which adds weight to itself and the ball becomes heavier and heavier.
Then God picks it up one day to throw it around and it weighs a thousand pounds.
What does God do?
(47) Jesus said, “A person cannot (at the same time) mount two horses or draw two bows. And a slave cannot serve two masters, but truly will honor the one and scoff at the other. No person drinks vintage wine and immediately desires to drink new wine. And new wine is not put into old wine skins lest they burst. And vintage wine is not put into new wine skins lest it go bad. And old patches are not sewed to new garments, for a rip will develop.”
According to his Son; if God drains the heavy air and re-inflates with new life, the old ball will burst and if God put us into a new ball, we will spoil!
Maybe God already put us into a new ball and this is how his Son knows we will go bad.
“I” do not know what God or his Son will do.
“I” do not even know what life “I am”.
“I” feel like “I am” all three “LIVES” at once.
“I” am like a football.
“I” am all three “LIVES” and “WE” are all “ALIVE”!
What we have created together, within “OURSELVES” is dead and very heavy, more like a rock, than a football.
