If I help my son with a gift, but do so for selfish reasons, I negate a portion of the gift and the portion negated, is in direct proportion to the degree of self-serving!
Now I do not know why God did what God did, or why man does what he does, but know any good that comes of it, is not His, if the gift was given with self-serving ends.
If God put me in play for selfish reasons and “I” shine, then it is my light that shines and not God’s.
If God puts me in play so “I” may shine, then “MY” light is <GODS> light.
It is the difference between God and Man and the difference between evolution and creation.
If Man puts me in play to shine, then my light is mans light, but if Man puts me in play for selfish reasons, they forfeit the “LIFE”.
