Not Made of Things Which Do Appear…
Through Faith we understand (have knowledge of) that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen (concrete) were NOT made of things which do appear (seen or manifested). (Hebrews 11:3 KJV)
The “seen” made by that which cannot be seen!”
How truly sad and pitiful! A couple of days ago, I actually took the time to sit down and watch an interview being conducted on a morning TV show between the female anchor and a professing “scientific” atheist. What a confusing interview! The female anchor seemed almost frustrated as she tried to ask intelligent questions, and the professing “atheist” seemed “foolish” trying to answer each question with one consistent answer: Science…According to him, the answer to all questions seen and unseen is the study of Science…
Now, most of us know that Science in itself is the study of things which can be seen, touched, measured, tasted, smelled or heard…Things that can be associated to the logical avenues of the five human senses: Eyes, Ears, Nose, Mouth, Touch…So, this rather very enthusiastic, yet foolish, scientist boasted that “religion” or belief in religion hurts the study of science and that “religion” goes against all grains of the human mind that should be well grounded in the vibrant study of Science! Poppycot!
According to him, where would we all be without the domain of Science and the study thereof??…According to him, our world as we know it would not exist without the great men and women of science who “prove” things not in “theory” but in actuality….According to “him,” the world, universe, and galaxies beyond are millions and billions years old…Sad and strange little man to say the least! But, one who is no doubt a threat and enemy to the furtherance of “Faith,” and to the workings of an UNSEEN, UNMEASUREABLE GOD!
Now, who am I to argue how old our world, universe, and galaxies are? They are as old or as young as God has ordained them into being or into existence…Billions? Possibly…Thousands? Possibly…To me, that’s not the question or statement….That’s just the tip of the iceberg…The question is, “How old is God?” Answer: No one knows…And, no one ever will know until God himself reveals it to HIS creation!
I would LOVE to debate this man on the subject of Darwinism verses Divine Creation by God…Even though he would never admit to it, I would WIN hands down!! Why? Because everything I need to know about creation is plainly printed in my Bible…And, by faith, I accept it 100%.
And, life in itself can all be easily wrapped up in one glorious chapter found in the Bible….Hebrews, chapter 11…”For he who cometh to God must first believe that He is!!!!” Oh, poor little scientist trying so hard to make sense of a world that can only be made sense of by believing in God!
I am a retired public school teacher. I loved both studying and teaching Science…And, I will NEVER forget my 9th grade science teacher who explained it plain and simple that day in Lab….He stated, “Science is the study of things man can see, hold, and measure…Therefore science is NOT the study of God because no man can see, hold, or measure God! But, without God there would be NOTHING to see, hold, or measure!” LOVED IT THEN….LOVE IT NOW!!!
The absolute truth is that the study of Science helps me to recognize, know better, understand, and fully accept by Faith the AWESOMENESS and GLORY of GOD!!! I love that mankind tries and tries to “fix” our own problems, explores the vastness of the galaxies, researches the intricate workings of the human body only to find that it completely escapes our cognitive and physical abilities and capabilites….ALL of it just shows me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, how GREAT, ALMIGHTY, and AMAZING GOD truly IS!!! Thank you science and scientists for PROVING how BIG GOD really IS! Yet; even in that we only see in part!!!! Oh, the supremacy of God!
Today, want you take the time to look up into the skies…watch the formation of clouds, watch the birds fly, listen to the sounds of rushing waters, walk along the beach, observe the ant in its goings, count the leaves on a tree, count the number of fingers and toes that you have and how they so equip the human body….Why? Because ALL of it was made by that which cannot be seen, touched, or measured….Who? GOD!!! “So that things which are seen were NOT made of things which do appear…” “In the beginning GOD Created!” Amen! Amen! Amen! Ain’t God GOOD!! So, go ahead and love science…but love and honor the CREATOR of ALL more!
Remember, God Loves You… (Even the unbelieving scientist…Let’s all say a prayer right now for this man to come to know God through faith in His son Christ Jesus…Then, the study of science will take on a brand new exciting meaning for him as well! )
