The truth of creation (3)

“The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” Genesis 1:2

Science defines the universe as being made up of five components: time, space, matter, power, and motion. With that clearly in mind, read this: “In the beginning [time] God created [power] the heaven [space] and the earth [matter]. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved [motion] upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be…and there was” (vv. 1-3). The first thing God tells us in the Bible is that He created all things and that He controls all things. Now consider these quotes from three leading magazines and newspapers: (1) “Most cosmologists (scientists who study the structures and evolution of the universe) agree that the Genesis account of creation, in imagining an initial void, may be uncannily close to the truth” (Time magazine). (2) “The universe suddenly exploded into being…The big bang bears an uncanny resemblance to the Genesis command” (Jim Holt, science writer, Wall Street Journal). (3) “New scientific revelations about supernovas, black holes, quarks, and the big bang even suggest to some scientists that there is a ‘grand design’ in the universe” (U.S. News & World Report). The retina in your eye contains 137 million light-sensitive cells, while the focusing muscles in your eye move approximately 100,000 times a day. Well guess what? Charles Darwin wrote in On the Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection, “To suppose that the eye…could have been formed by natural selection [evolution], seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.” The truth is this: God made you, and He has a plan for your life.
