Science so Called

I Tim. 6:20 “O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings and oppositions of science falsely so called..”

I put ‘science’ in the same category as the weather. It changes a lot!!
But if you wait long enough it finally has no choice but to bow to the truth of God’s Word.

I have come across several examples recently where, once again, scientific research proves God is right after all!!

1. What causes our death? (excepting disease or accidents)

God has appointed a day for each of us when our physical life here will end.
Science has not agreed on that, considering the ages of people in the first chapters of Genesis to be fabled. It was not believed to be possible for a human body to live that long, the accepted truth being that though the body rejuvenates itself, this process becomes less effective over time and the body simply wears down to the point of death.
But… recent research shows that that is not the case. The body CAN indefinitely rejuvenate itself. What causes death is the pre-coded information in the DNA of each person. There is a day encrypted in our DNA that shall determine on which day we shall take our last breath.
God said “And as it is appointed unto men once to die….” (Hebrews 9:27)
In I Sam. 26:10 , David said, “Furthermore, As the Lord liveth…… his day shall come to die.”

2. God’s first words about man were “It is not good for man to be alone.”
In the wake of the Virginia massacre this truth was brought home again. The gunman, Seung-Hui Cho was a lonely man. In the midst of 26,000 students he was alone, not even known by the man who was his roommate for the last year. He sat in the back of the class, a hat over his face and did not participate.
God created man to be connected and interconnected one with another. To live contrary to God’s plan is to invite mental instability and emotional volatility.
God created man to be in the nucleus of a family, safe and secure and loved. We know that babies left to themselves without any human touch simply die. Human beings do not thrive when separated one from another.

3. Scientists’ insistence that the prehistoric earth is millions of years old has hit a snag. According to biological science, we have all came from a woman not too many thousands of years ago. Science has called this woman ‘Eve’, and originally thought her to be 200,000 years old but has been forced to drastically reduce her age in the light of the newly determined faster mutation rate of ‘mitochondrial DNA’.
I guess maybe the biblical account was right after all??

4.Evolution depends on the premise of the simple cell from which all complex organisms evolved , but as science is now enabled to delve deeper and deeper into the hidden aspects of the cell the ‘simple cell’ has become unbelievably intricate in design and purpose. There is a video of the Inner life of a simple cell It is an amazing thing to watch – to believe that that came about without intelligent design is so far fetched that anyone who believes it is, in God’s words, ‘a fool’.

I find it so delightfully comforting to know that God’s Word is still true and always will be. No human mind could possibly have written a book that transcends all time and has never, and will never, be proven to be mistaken or false in even the smallest detail!!
Our God truly is the Creator of all things and His wisdom begins where human wisdom ends.

“So shall I have an answer for him who reproaches me,
For I trust in Your Word!!”
Ps. 119”42
