Theme: THE EXISTENCE OF GOD
Text: “Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise? He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see? He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know? The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.” – Psalms 94:8-11.
Comment: While those who promote the doctrine of “unbelief” have always ended up disgracefully, the praise of God continues unabated among people of goodwill. Colonel John Glenn of America was the more convinced of his belief in God’s existence after his space-travel, and wrote of “the orderliness of the whole universe around us”. He asked: “Could this just have happened? Was it an accident that a collection of solid masses of material, like our sun, stars, the planets, etc, suddenly started making these orbits of its own accord? I cannot believe that. This was a definite plan. This is one big thing that shows me there is a God. Some Power puts all this into orbit and keeps it there.
There were skeptics in the time of Apostle Paul. Concerning them he wrote, “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. …Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?” (1 Corinthians 1:18-21) In the revelations given to St. John, the angels are reported to have extolled God Almighty thus, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” – Revelation 4:11.
