When God got up from his bed, he had the first thought: to create a living being, a living man, who will live with him and be his companion, accompanying him at his side; such a living being can listen to his speaking and listen to his pouring out and can also talk with him. So God for the first time personally picked up a handful of dust and created with his own hands the first living being in his mind. And then he for the first time gave such a living creature a name—Adam.
When he had such a living man, what was God’s heart like? He for the first time felt the joy of having a dear one and a companion, for the first time felt the responsibility of being a father, and for the first time felt a sense of concern. It was this living man who brought God pleasure and joy. He made God feel comfort for the first time.

God’s authority is unique. It is the characteristic expression of, and the special substance of, the identity of God Himself. No created or non-created being possesses such characteristic expression and such special substance; only the Creator possesses this kind of authority. That is to say, only the Creator—God the Unique—is expressed in this way and has this substance.
Were it not for the Creator’s predestination and His guidance, a life newly born into this world would not know where to go or where to stay, would have no relations, belong nowhere, have no real home. But because of the Creator’s meticulous arrangements, a person begins the journey of his or her life with a place to stay, parents, a place they belong to, and relatives. Throughout this process, the advent of this new life is determined by the Creator’s plans, and everything it will come to possess will be bestowed upon it by the Creator.
