The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork
christian quotes, Psalm 19:1, quotes

What would best display His Glory? He breathed into man, the breath of life and made man in his own image, sentient, and then redeemed man with His own life. We only see a bit thus far, yet even the angels and the entire creation waits to see this Glory. 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

I found an interesting thought about this when I was looking at “Freedom of the Glory of the children of God”
‘Freedom of the glory of the children of God.’ This is a phrase which implies that the creation was also made weak and frail in the fall. Therefore it is not at ‘liberty’ or ‘freedom’ from the curse of sin. This need for liberty from the curse brings the words into a logical order. Freedom from the curse is to be obtained through restoration just like the church. Even the creation (as beyond the church, i.e. nature) will be liberated by the resurrection of Christ, just as we are. Therefore, creation will one day be introduced into the same liberty of glory that shall be revealed in us (Rom 8:18).
Our glory is essentially one of freedom, for we are restored into a pure and incorruptible relationship with God forever, as objects of his undeserved favor and riches. This is true liberty, which nature must also be brought into under the Lordship of the lamb, forever and ever. It is a glorious liberty because the wealth of blessings from which God’s love and omnipotent desire to care and give in endless wealth to the church forever and ever is breathtakingly wonderful and the source of praises to God from both men and angels. Even the angels learn and grow by witnessing these awesome riches being poured out, endlessly and in increasing measures, upon the everlasting objects of God’s love. The liberty of nature will shine under this same glory for every molecule will sparkle in the expression of God’s joyful love surrounding Christ’s beloved bride.

We should all glorify him & honor him because he is the only one deserves it. The only one worthy of such praise is he who created us & the world we live in & the heaven in which we will meet him very soon.

Tell that to the atheist, that they have insulted the glory of God, and their fragile brains will implode.
I have no problem saying I have done as much, but at least I have tasted reality.

Well I reckon being willing to say as much might be that repentance thing. No self respecting atheist would ever fo that. Like you said, imploding heads.
