"The Lonely Man of Faith" Part 2

If we are created in God's image, and the desire to be "closer" to God is the driving force behind the creative process. And if we all have the potential to be prophets -- that is, the ability through the desire to be near God to create new worlds through our speech, then there seems to be a few inescapable conslusions that follow:

i. Every human being must be treated with an element of dignity, respect and awe.

ii. We are not capable of doing the above on a consistent basis.

iii. We are commanded to spend our lives overcoming this flaw. We must strive to "create" a world where we are indeed capable of treating each other with dignity, respect and awe, and that doing so becomes a central pillar of our existence.
