To many, scientific research has become a curse. God has permitted a floor of light to be poured upon the world in discoveries in science and art; but even the greatest minds, if not guided by the word of God in their research, become bewildered in their attempts to investigate the relations of science and revelation. Human Knowledge of both material and spiritual things is partial and imperfect; therefore many are unable to harmonize their views of science with scpripture statements. Many accept mere theories and speculations as scientific facts, and they think that God’s word is to be tested by the teachhings of science falsely so called.(1 Timothy 6:20). The Creator and his works are beyond their comprehension: and because they cannot explain these by natural laws, Bible history is regared as unreliable. Those who doubt the reliability of the records of the old and new testaments too often go a step further and doubt the existence of God and attribute infinite power to nature. Having let go their anchor, they are left to beat about upon the rocks of infidelity. Thus many err from the faith and are seduced by the devil. Men have endeavored to be wiser than their creater; human philosophy has attempted to search out and explain mysteries which will never be revealed through the eternal ages. if men would but search and understand what God had made know of himself and his purpose, they would realize their own littleness and would be content with that which has been revealed for themselves and their children. It is a masterpiece of satan’s deceptions to keep the minds of men searching and conjecturing in regard to that which God has not made known and which he dose not intent that we shall understand. It was thus Lucifer lost his place in heaven. He became dissatisfied because all the secrets of God’s purposes were not confided to him, and he entirely disregarded that which was revealed concerning his work in the lofty position assigned him. By arousing the same discontent in the angel’s under his command, he caused their fall. Now he seeks to imbue the minds of men with the same spirit and to lead them also to disregard the direct commands of God. Check my Blog tomorrow for topic six.
