Humanity


 
The human condition is not unique to 21st century humans. Indeed the first humans struggled with their humanity the same way  we do today. The history of humanity reveals many situations where humans tried to make the world a better place for themselves but did so without realizing their inadequacy. This occurred on an individual level and also on a larger scale.  Eventually humans no longer depended on a higher power but on themselves.    Humans felt that ability that they seemingly possessed was adequate. 

When humans substituted their inadequacy for the adequacy of the higher power they lost the adequacy that was provided for them by the higher power.   Now that they thought they were adequately wise they no longer were able to receive the wisdom that He only can provide.  Now that they thought they were adequately loving they no longer were able to receive the love that He only can provide. Now that they thought they were adequately peaceful they no longer were able to receive the peace that He only can provide.  Now that they thought they were adequately secure they no longer  were able to receive the security that He only can provide.  Now that they thought they were adequately just they no longer were able to receive the justice that He only can provide

Humans fought each other,  hated each other, envied each other,  stole from each other, lied to each other, killed each other because they thought they were adequate. 

 They were so blinded that they did not recognize that their actions resulted in the absence of His provision. Rather they thought their actions caused the provision and instead  blamed Him for the lack of provision. They now found it difficult to  seek after He who  had become, to them, the source of all human misery.

Time may change but the human condition does not and as such all humans today think they are adequate in certain areas. With increased urbanization, certain technological advances, and increased wealth distribution, such thinking has been accelerated. Even the most religious amongst us struggle knowingly (or unknowingly) thinking they are adequate in certain areas.
