3-4-2016 God Is Creator Of Order

The magnificent design and order to life demands faith in the Creator God. Jesus pointed to inherent order in agriculture when He said: “the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come” (Mark 4:28-29 NKJV). Such order is impossible without law from a Higher Power. God decreed, “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease.” (Genesis 8:22 NKJV). Abraham “waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder (Greek word, “technician, craftsman”) and maker (Greek word, “artisan, framer”) is God” (Hebrews 11:10 NKJV). Truly, the “technology” of life is impossible and nonsensical without the All-powerful, All-intelligent Creator God!

Atheism vs God – JAM

Let’s get one thing straight – both atheists and Christians believe that the universe had a beginning whether by creation or by “the big bang”. That everything had a beginning is a matter of physics; but why it began is a matter of meta-physics. The first is the realm of science, the second of religion. In Steven Hawking’s latest book, The Grand Design, he argues that the laws of gravity and quantum theory justify the conclusion that a universe can spontaneously appear from nothing. However a reading of his reasoning leaves one with a feeling that something is not just right. For one thing gravity cannot exist without mass and quantum theory is about interaction between energy and matter. Both are about that which already exists; neither offers any application to that which did not exist. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
