"there went out a sower to sow" - Beyond the Domain of Probability


Beyond the Domain of Probability

If you roll the dice 200 to 1200 times continually.  You may encounter a case that one-spot appears four times consecutively back-to-back.

And at the time, it does not necessarily mean that you have special ability.  It is a matter of probability.

In the human history of 2000 years, we might see emergence of such a man as Hitler or Napoleon.  But it does not necessarily mean that Hitler, Napoleon, or such a man is genius.  It is a matter of probability.

 So, you may say that the condition of a hero is that he is a right person in a right place at a right time.  As all the men have almost similar ability essentially as a member of the human species, the important factors for appearance of a hero are a situation and a timing.

For example, if Obama had been born a decade earlier or later, he should not have become US President.  He was a right person in a right place at a right timing in the 2008 US Presidential election.

So, in 4000 years of the human history, there is a possibility that a man like Abraham was born who was praised by God.  A man like Moses was born who was trusted by God.  And, a man like Muhammed was born who was given words of God.

But, it is unthinkable that a man like Christ Jesus was born who claimed that He was the Son of God or He was sent by God no matter if the human history becomes longer than 10,000, 100,000, 1 million, or 10 million years.

If Christ Jesus had not been born and Christianity had not been founded, this modern civilization should have been impossible.  The world of today must have been almost the same level of the Roman Empire 2000 years ago.  It is because the modern civilization owes its success to science, culture, and social systems of modern Europe that has been based on Christianity.

If living things continue evolution for a billion years, there is a chance that a species with higher intelligence would appear, and it might look like the human species.  But how the creature comes to develop its spiritual ability cannot be predicted.  They may not find God as their guide.  They may not have concepts of Heaven and the hell.  They may not obey ethical codes.  They may just end as intellectual apes but not as human beings.

The spiritual aspect of human beings seems to have been formed beyond a range where probability dominates.  It must be formed by interference of God.

If it is not realized by chance, there must be intention of somebody, God in this case.  But we cannot simply find with what intention God gave spiritual ability to mankind.

Anyway, this success of the human civilization is beyond a domain of probability in the nature.  We have to realize that mankind did not become mankind by its own intention or will.  We are just in the hand of God who can control any probability, since He is Almighty.

So, Christ Jesus appeared beyond the domain of probability 2000 years ago.

Mar 4:3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
Mar 4:4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.
Mar 4:5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:
Mar 4:6 But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.
Mar 4:7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.
