Religious Philosophy Lesson 20 Food for Thought
MY VIEW: MASTER OF RELIGIOUS PHILOSOPHY LESSON 20
Food for Thought
What does "dominion" mean to you? Does it entitle you to kill anything you want? For food? For sport? What about non-living natural resources? Does dominion give you the right to take whatever you want or need, and not worry about the long term impact?
Answer: "DOMINION" to me meant having the spirit of excellence and diligence in anything I find myself doing or to do. It does not entitle me or anybody to kill anything/anybody you want, for food nor for sport; No dominion does not give me the right to take whatever I want or need, and not worry about the long term impact but dominion has given me power to do all good things according through Him (Christ) that strength me.
· The Chinese invented paper, gun powder, wine, and numerous other things that we now take for granted. And yet, it was the West that developed the "scientific method", and the West that created the entire "field" of science. Since China was clearly capable of brilliant individual inventions, why do you suppose the organic development of science happened in the West rather than in China?
Answer: why I suppose the organic development of science happened in the West rather than in China is still because of lack of consciousness excellence and diligence to God given vision/gift.
I mean that God may has given Chine the spirit of excellence in the field of science they saw the vision; they implemented the calling but failed to be diligent to the vision that resulted to the West picking the vision and run diligently with it. Once anybody is satisfied at ones level it becomes difficult to grow above the level. China did not excel (show dominion) as supposed because they initially lack the consciousness of using their God given dominion in the field of science. However they are now bouncing back.
