Genesis 1:1, 31 – In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. God saw all that He had made, and it was very good. (NIV 1978)
My Musings – Why is it that so many people refuse to believe that something with such a massive and magnificent design as the cosmos and with such a minute and meticulous design as the microscopic world is not attributable to a master designer? Why do they choose to believe something so complex and with such intricacy and order sprang from disorder through random chance? That all that is, came from nothing that was? This hardly seems like science to me.
The reality is, the science behind all of creation, what is seen and unseen, the underlying code, if you will, was also designed by the creator. So you see, real science is inextricably linked to the Creator. How things came to be was an act of creation (God said…and it was so). How they are governed once created, the science (order) behind it all, is also by God’s design.
My Advice – In the beginning God. That is all the explanation that is necessary. It is the only explanation that is plausible.
Romans 1:20 – For 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. (NIV 1978)
My Musings – So called “science” has blinded the eyes of many. The Creator is clearly seen in His creation. It is understood that an intelligent design means there is an intelligent designer. Order and complexity did not happen by chance or accident.
My Advice – Do not be taken in by the so-called scientific proofs that seemingly contradict the Bible’s account of creation. Scientific “facts” have changed time and time again throughout the course of history, but God’s account of creation has never changed or been conclusively contradicted.
INTRODUCTION – LOOKING FOR A GOOD CAUSE?
If Whatever Begins to Exist Has a Cause – In nature, there are no instances of something coming into existence out of nothing. When scientists believed that the universe had always existed, they did not dispute “whatever begins to exist has a cause.” Now many do.
Then the Universe Had a Beginning – “Almost everyone now believes that the Universe, and time itself, had a beginning at the big Bang.” (Stephen Hawking). In the Big Bang theory, the universe (time, space and matter) came into being in an instant in a cosmic explosion. The effects of this have been scientifically observed (stars and plants are rapidly moving away from each other and from a common origin). In other words, Continue reading “Whatever Happened to the Creator?”

1 Samuel 2:8b, 9 – “For the foundations of the earth are the Lord’s; upon them He has set the world. He will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness.” (NIV 1978)
My Musing – A God who is capable of establishing the foundation of the earth, is more than capable of guarding our feet and keeping us from falling.
My Advice – Look to the Lord for stability in life. There is no surer foundation for your life.
Who Gave the Universe It’s Design?
What may be known about God is plain…because God has made it plain… For 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 1:19-20) All scriptures references are NIV. Continue reading “Who Gave The Universe Its Design?”
