So there's absolutely no possible way we could be the center of the universe. NO WAY. We aren't the center of anything.
But for one thing. God--who IS the center of the universe--says that we are. He created us
All of us and each of us.
"What are mere mortals that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?
You made them a little lower than the angels,
You crowned them with glory and honor,
and put everything under their feet."
Psalm 8: 4-6 as quoted in Hebrews 2: 6-8
We aren't the center of the universe, but we ARE the apple of His eye. We aren't the most important people (or nation!) who ever lived but we are HIS people, a royal priesthood, a people belonging to God. It's in the context of HIS world view that we must see ourselves and those around us.
