TODAY’S WORD FOR TODAY
SCIENCE PROVES THE BIBLE TRUE (1)
‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.’
To say that true science and the Bible are contradictory is simply not so. If there’s even one chance in a million that God, heaven, and hell are true, wouldn’t you want to know? After all, one day you’re going to die. What then? And furthermore, since our children and grandchildren are increasingly exposed to secular teaching, don’t you want to be able to answer their questions when they come home from school or college, and steer them in the right direction? Well, guess what? Science proves the Bible true! For the next few days let’s talk about it: 1) The Bible tells us the earth floats in space. There was a time when people believed it sat on a large animal or giant.
Seriously! But fifteen hundred years before Christ, the patriarch Job said, ‘He…hangeth the earth upon nothing’ (Job 26:7 KJV). Think about that: you can’t even hang your hat on nothing! The fact is, science didn’t discover that the earth hangs upon nothing until AD 1650. 2) The Bible tells us the earth is composed of atoms. ‘By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen are not made of things which are visible’ (Hebrews 11:3 NKJV). Only in recent years has science discovered that everything we see is composed of things we can’t see – namely, invisible atoms. Yet the Bible, written more than two thousand years ago, said it was so. Now, the Bible doesn’t need science to prove that it’s true – it just so happens that it does.
