The Doctor: The Only Hope

The only hope for the creation, for the whole universe as well as man is in the character of God, and in the following way.  God’s glory and God’s honor prohibit His leaving the world as it is.  If God is God, the great Creator, and if God is all powerful, with all rule and authority at His command, then the very character of God makes it quite impossible that He should leave creation as it is at the present time. He cannot leave it in this condition of vanity, and in this condition of ‘groaning’ and ‘travailing’.  It is inconsistent with the character of God that this should be the permanent state of affairs; and of course that is precisely what the Bible tells us.  – D.Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Romans Vol. 8, p. 57
