Theme: THE EXISTENCE OF GOD

Text: “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?” – Romans 11:33, 34.

Comment: The infinitude of the wisdom of God are so manifest in creation that it is too vast for human beings to understand fully. Although it is said that Einstein wasn’t religious, and didn’t believe in a personal God, he called the Genius behind the universe “an intelligence of such superiority that, compared with it, all the systematic thinking and acting of human beings is an utterly insignificant reflection.”

 

According to the website y-jesus.com/more/scc-science-christianity-compatible “In the past century, scientists learned that a tiny molecule called DNA is the “brain” behind each cell in our bodies as well as every other living thing. DNA’s intricate complexity caused its co-discoverer, Francis Crick, to believe that it could never have originated on earth naturally. See Francis Crick, Life Itself (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1981).

 

In the early 21st century, leading atheist Antony Flew’s atheism came to an abrupt end when he studied the intelligence behind DNA. (Quoted in Gary Habermas, “My Pilgrimage from Atheism to Theism”: Interview with Antony Flew, Philosophia Christi, (Winter, 2005). An indepth understanding of the wisdom and knowledge of God especially with regards to the human brain and DNA would make us appreciate God’s creation and worship Him in spirit and in truth.

 

Scripture says: “O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture … “ – Psalm 95:6, 7.
