The greatest victory in life is the victory over self
The deeper scientists dig, the more they confirm the Bible to be the true account of the origin of man and God to be the Divine Originator of all things! The great quest by many scientist to prove there is no God only results in greater evidence that He is the Creator of all things!
Would you please consider the following:
- Astronomy: (study of the stars) For centuries, men tried to count the stars. The total number visible to the naked eye is about 4,000. Yet Jeremiah 33:22 says "As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea be measured." See also Genesis 22:17. Before the invention of the telescope, this must have seemed to be a serious error in the Bible! Now science estimates that there are at least 10 to the 26th power or a hundred-million-billion-billion stars! If you counted 10 numbers per second, it would take you a thousand-million-billion years to count to 10 to the 26th power! 1 Corinthians 15:41 also must have seemed to be a mistake. "One star differeth from another star in glory." Even through a telescope they all look like a point of light. However, we know from science that no two stars are alike! The Bible is right again. Psalm 19 is often cited as "prescientific" and yet the deeper science digs the more they prove it to be true! Think about this: verses 2-3 - the stars send out signals. The Bible said so long before the scientist found it! Verse 6 - the sun moves in an orbit which takes it from one end of the universe to the other. Science says the sun is in a gigantic moving around a center in the Milky Way galaxy that would require 2 million centuries to complete, even at a speed of 600,000 mph. Not only that, it is known that our galaxy in moving with respect to other galaxies! Wow! Psalm 19 is not "prescientific" it is "prescientist"!
- Geophysics: (physics of the earth - deals with earths shape, structure, and force systems) A few centuries ago, scientists and teachers all believed in a flat earth! They surely thought the Bible to be unscientific because it described the earth as a sphere! Isaiah 40:22 "It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth." Proverbs 8:27 "When he set a compass upon the face of the depth." "compass" means circle or circuit! Again, the Bible is right and God is still God, and Jesus is the only way anyone ever goes to heaven! The Bible says so! Acts 4:12
