We have previously looked at seven different scientific “discoveries” that were first revealed to man by God in His Word. It was only after many years that the scientific community “caught up” to the Bible, and affirmed the existence of these wonders of nature.
Unfortunately for mankind, a majority of the scientific community has still not caught up to the Bible. In particular, there are at least two scientific truths revealed in the Bible that science has not accepted, but has actually rejected. The denials of these truths have widespread ramifications for all of mankind.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. (Rom 1:20-23)
For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. (Psa 139:13-18)
Here in Rom 1:20-22, the Bible describes men who have blinded themselves to the revelation of the Creator that is found in nature (Psa 19:1-6, Isa 40:22-26, Psa 8:3-9). By misleading themselves, they deny the very existence of a Creator God. These verses can easily be applied to many scientists that have existed both in the past and the present day. They have claimed much wisdom and, yet, are shown to be foolish, by denying the unquestionable evidence of God found in all of nature.
There is at least one other truth that science has yet to come to accept. In Psa 139:13-18 – we find the truth that a child’s life begins at the child’s conception. It is at conception that the child’s formation begins with the receipt of their genetic code (the book), before any of the child’s distinct body parts were existing (that which is unperfect). It is this genetic code that dictates how the child’s members are fashioned and formed. The Bible makes it a very plain truth that, at conception, a child exists with a life of their own. This is proven by possessing a distinct genetic code (DNA) from their mother’s body. God was actively at work in the life of this child while yet in it’s mother’s womb. (Jer 1:5, Psa 71:5-6, Isa 49:1 + 5, Gal 1:15-16, Luke 1:15, Psa 22:10)
Because most of science has actively denied the obvious facts of the existence of a Creator God and the existence of life at the conception of a child, we are forced to question every “discovery” that science comes up with. We must compare any scientific discovery with Biblical teachings and call into question any discovery that is not supported by Biblical teachings.
THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION:
Why is the recognition of a divine Creator so important for mankind? God’s role as Creator is the very origin of His authority over all (Roms 9:20-23). Because God created us He can do with us as He pleases. He is our ultimate lawgiver, our judge, and our King all because He made us. To do away with His creatorship, is to do away with His authority over all mankind and mankind’s need to submit to His will and way. (Dan 4:34-37)
The truth that life begins at conception is very important for mankind to understand. Most importantly, the murdering of the innocent life (abortion) is a heinous sin, bringing to a society God’s hottest wrath (Matt 18:3-14, Hosea 13:16).
Also, the principle of the value of HUMAN life, no matter at what stage of development, is essential to the existence of our form of society. Our founders believed every person has a right to LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. By taking the right to life from the youngest members of our society opens the door to taking the right to life from others as well. Older American’s right to life is now being threatened.
The “value to society” of both the youngest and the oldest of our nation is now being discussed openly. This is leading to a belief that if a person does not contribute to society, their life is of less value. This will lead to the taking of more life as time progresses.
If we are saved, we need to be aware of the changes to our society that are taking place and the belief system that is leading to these changes. As the Lord says “the truth shall make you free”. Our responsibility as Christians is to stand up for the Word of God by teaching our acquaintances and family the truths about God’s creatorship and life’s value. We should also be voting for those who believe these truths so that our government will begin to uphold these Godly, Biblical values. Finally, we should PRAY that the Lord would intervene in our nation and bring about a spirit of repentance upon our people so that our nation would turn from its sin and God’s wrath would be withheld.
For those who have not turned from their sins and turned to Christ as Lord and Savior… study the Bible with an open mind, and see the great truths He has revealed to man. Believe His Word, trust His message about His Son and look to Jesus for forgiveness for your sin. He will abundantly pardon. (Act 4:10-12)
