As mentioned last week, our universe does not demonstrate its existence as a matter of chance, as the “theory” of evolution would have people believe. Instead, there is a common consistency in everything around us. Every animal has a male and female. Life procreates based on the fact of male and female. This consistency cannot be overlooked, and someone say “well chance may one day allow male and male or female and female to procreate. As far back as history records, there has not been one day where the sun came up in the west and sat in the east. The list could go on, but I believe you see the point. Men pitch the concept of chance changing our universe, of chance being relative, reducing truth and facts to nothing, or opinion.
It was the late 1400s when men started questioning the “circle of the earth”. I find that fascinating, when the Bible had already spoken that fact. It is amazing that the Bible not only gives us the recipe of life, the truths by which God expects us to live by to please Him, but also in so many passages, indirectly gives us facts about our universe, almost like it is inadvertently. It does so by recording that life 5,000 years ago existed in the same environment it does today, during the time of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Enoch, and the patriarchs. Then when you go 2000 years later, the universe still operates under the same laws of nature. And, today, even though the Bible records the change of time as a miracle in the old law, it just proves the consistent order, and as we compare that to today, nothing has changed. Chance didn’t change it back, didn’t fix things, because the Creator worked HIS work.
Truth is consistent like the universe. It is the same yesterday, today, and forever. There is no relativity to it. Just like God’s Light is pure, so is the truth of God’s Word. Jesus states He is “the way, the truth, and the life”, John 14:6. He was pure, in His obedience to God’s Word. Scriptures teach He did not sin, thus He was pure as God His Father is, John 1:4,5; 3:19, 21; 8:12; 12:46; 1 Peter 2:21-24 . Isaiah 5:20 tells us that evil is not good, nor good evil, just as light is not darkness, nor darkness light. They are divided in God’s mind. This light exposes our error, and then guides up back to the path of righteousness, Luke 1:79. Luke 11:35,36 warns that we not mix darkness and light, and if we fill our life with light (the gospel), there will be no darkness (sin) in our life.1 John 3:9 confirms that fact. But if truth is opinion, chance, or relative, how do we determine the real light in its purity? How would we know what the Creator deems good or evil? How could anyone, including God, judge us or hold us accountable?
Chance and relativity will not establish any fact, but simply keeps people guessing. Knowledge of truth and facts, removes the doubt, as we develop our faith in God and His Word. Psalm 119, not only is the largest chapter of the Bible, but expresses the importance of God's revealed Word, and our keeping it. Next week, let's look at that text and learn from it.
