"Man is maid of Earth's soil and God's spirit. "Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground and the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living being." (Gen. 2.7) Man lives and dies as any other growth of the earth.Because of God's spirit, man obtains fellowship with God and even a promise of an eternal life. Then the magnificent battle starts, where he seeks his aims and purpose. To cultivate the the earth and all that exists around him is his major objective. The one who cultivates his/her land, will be sated with bread, the one who strives for vanity, will be satiated by poverty. Man must live with his environment, understand his fellowship with neighbour and his land. He does not live alone, he lives in a community with others and his challenge is to enrich and improve life. Man has the assignment to coordinate what is his relity in nature and his society of mankind. In that understanding he seeks to make nature and society mutually beneficial but not damaging. With his intelligence, creativity and executive power he benefits from the growth of earth and the wealth of nature, but led by greed and vanity he is bound to be defeated by himself, he loses the relationship with God, loses his origin, alienates himself from his surroundings and from other people."
