What has landscape got to do with god
I was brought up with beautiful countryside all around me - never once did I think a god had anything to do with it. As I grew and gained an education, I learned that some aspects of the landscape were glacial, some due to river erosion and the caves due to limestone being dissolved by rainwater.
Isn't science and nature wonderful!
Are the people of Georgia and North Carolina particularly uneducated?
The mountains there, including eastern Tennessee, are breathtaking and I have been moved to tears at times, especially during peak in Autumn. But there's a lot of poverty and low education within those mountains, which helps explains why people there are so religious.
Nice image. Thanks for sharing.
I love these land areas and the great outdoors is wonderful. I have a problem with all this however. I cannot equate the beauty of the land with a city in some unknown place and the city has a big gate. This big city (or whatever place being talked about) also has high walls. The Buybull calls this place "heaven" and it is god's country.
Is the place keeping people in or people out? It's hard to tell. We don't get much more than this out of the Buybull. Apparently "God country" doesn't live up to the photo you have provided here or the place the Buybull is trying to describe.
The scriptural "God country" is a big myth.
