And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.(Luke 2:16-20) KJV
God has revealed a way for us to understand science which shows that it’s in perfect harmony with the Bible. This is possible because we made a choice to believe that, no matter what, the Bible is always right.
I did this because of what I choose to believe about the character of the God whom I serve: God doesn’t lie. Why would I choose to serve a God who lies? I wouldn’t. I put my faith in what I believe God should be according to the testimony that he has given us. This is beginning to bear fruit. My life for many years has been focused on wrestling the scientific narrative of godless existence to separate truth from fiction, to see how the true parts of science accurately align with the Bible. It reveals which are the fictional parts of science and exposes the flaws in the reasoning behind them.
It has been my main focus. So today I want to step back for a moment and reconnect with the reason why I did this in the first place.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
It’s Christmas time!
We are celebrating the birth of the savior of mankind. As much as I have been blessed with an intellect and a passion for the Bible, I have also been blessed with good health, great family, and the privilege of living in advanced Western cultures. I don’t know about you, but I have a lot to be thankful for. It is time to praise God for all the things that I have heard and seen. It is time to rejoice in the Lord and praise Him for his mercy and grace. I want to tell the good news of the birth of our savior like the shepherds did, because it’s the good news about the birth of our savior and not because it’s a fascinating new insight on why science is wrong and the Bible is right.
It’s Christmas time!
Let’s all of us pray that there really will be peace on earth and goodwill to all men. And women. And people who are gender neutral or choose not to self identify. Let’s pray for all of the people who are stuck in traffic right now because they are enduring the chaos of retail madness while they do their Christmas shopping. Let’s praise the Lord for the food on our tables and the shoes on our feet, giving thanks and praise above all else that we’re not presently stuck in traffic because there are a few more things left to buy.
Let us praise the Lord, even if we are stuck in traffic in the madness of Christmas shopping, that we know the reason why we are going to so much trouble and experiencing the consternation and frustration of those who don’t know, or forget to remember, that the savior of mankind has been born!
- Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
- believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
- confess your sin.
It’s Christmas time!
Whatever you have and whomever you are with, remember to be thankful. When the madness of Christmas shopping is over there will be the quiet anticipation of the credit card bills. There will be the tendency to regret spending money on things for people to unwrap, that are essentially useless and will never be used or played with. There will be the absence of activity. There will be time when the question, “what’s the point?” will begin to be unavoidable.
- The point is, the savior of mankind has been born!
- The savior of womankind has been born too, because it’s the same person.
- The savior of LGBTQkind has also been born, because it’s the same person.
- Jesus Christ the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
