“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place, what is man that You are mindful of him, the son of man that You care for him?” (Psalms 8:3, 4, NIV 1984).
“Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20, NIV 1984).
My Musings – One would think, that with the increase in knowledge, what has been “clearly seen” since the “creation of the world,” would be beyond the doubt of anyone. What God made plain and easy to understand from “what has been made,” man has increasingly made complex and impossible to understand through theories that exclude from consideration the possibility of a creator. “Their thinking [is] futile and their foolish hearts [are] darkened. Although they [claim] to be wise, they [are] fools” (Romans 1:21–22, NIV 1984), in pursuit of explanations of what God has made plain.
My Advice – “Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?” (1 Corinthians 1:20–21, NIV 1984). “I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.” (Isaiah 29:14, NIV 1984). There is no excuse for being foolish. Accept what should be clearly (doesn’t even require faith) understood.
