That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.(Acts 17:27-28) KJV
In him we live gives the impression that God isn’t only omnipresent but is somehow the actual material that the universe is made of. We’re in the universe, but if we’re also in God then, on some level, God and the universe are part of the same thing. God is the universe, and the universe is God, at least, an aspect of God. Which aspect? That’s something that we can deduce.
- IF the deep is the physical manifestation of God,
- AND the deep was used as the source of Hydrogen for nucleosynthesis,
- SUCH that the universe was made from the deep,
- THEN we’re made from and exist in a universe made from the deep.
For in him we live, and move, and have our being, isn’t metaphysical or poetic, it’s accurate physics. It looks like we once again arrived at the conclusion that God the Son, Jesus Christ no less, is the deep. We fully realize that this kind of thing upsets Bible-believing Christians, so we better have some really good scriptural support for this idea.
But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.(1 Corinthians 8:6) KJV
Of whom and by whom are all things, and we in him. If the deep is the physical body of God and we’re derived from it, then this isn’t metaphysical or poetry either, it is accurate physics.
