THE INCREDIBLE HUMAN POTENTIAL

be ruled by us, who, with God the Father and Christ, become the
Kingdom of God.
God is first of all Creator, but God is also Ruler. And He is
Educator, who reveals knowledge beyond and outside the scope
ofhuman mind ofitselfto comprehend!
Put together all these scriptures 1 have used in this chapter,
and you begin to grasp the incredible human potential. Our po–

We are to be given jurisdiction over the entire universe!
What are we going to do then? These scriptures indicate we
shall impart life to billions and billions of dead planets, as life has

What is the origin of evil?
What is the origin and source of human nature, and how
shall humans be ridded of it?
Why was man made mortal, of material substance from the
ground? Why does man, who is composed of matter the same as
animals, who dies the same death as animals, have a mind thou–
sands of times greater in mental output than animals whose brains
are virtually equal to human brain, both quantitatively and quali–
tatively? What makes the difference?
Why
is the human mind,
while able to invent the computer, and fty to the moon and back,
