Impassioned Truth

Views of gods are interesting. They vary from sticks of wood, to stone statues, to an unknown entity, to Nature, to religious sets of beliefs, to an indescribable something-out-there. It all comes home, so-to-speak, when people talk about origins, where they came from, and the notions of the day about where that is. The popular notion today: look up…we are star dust.

So we teach biblical creation in a world dominated by the god called “we decide what is true”. That view says it all happened by itself. I admit to getting passionate about the God of the Bible, because He made the heavens and the earth, maintains them, and still calls the shots.

And, He is “opinionated” about it. He declares it loudly. He makes assessments about parts of it in His speech through the Old Testament prophets, the New Testament apostles, and in first-person to Job. He speaks as a matter of historical fact (in Genesis 1), but other times He speaks passionately, even poetically, and sometimes with anger when faced with the foolishness and sin of man.

In the end, or in the final say, did your ancestor come from the soup? What do you believe? How do you answer that to your son or daughter? Is it whimsical star dust from whence that child came?

I don’t think so. I know that it’s not so. I echo the words below…

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God made… Psalm 96:5 For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols, but the Lord made the heavens… Isaiah 40:28 The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth… Acts 4:4 Sovereign Lord, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them…
