Happy Π Day!

Also he made a molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits the height thereof; and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.

The Logic of Damnation

  • IFthe Bible is supposed to be the inerrant Word of God,
    • BUTthe value of Π is wrong,
  • THENthe Bible isn’t inerrant,
    • THEREFOREit can be safely rejected.

Evil people want you to believe that the Bible gets the value of Π wrong so that you’ll reject it and forfeit the gift of everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ. However the Bible gets the value of Π exactly right.

And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:

I went to BEZA International Church expecting a blessing. My ears tingled as I strained to hear every word: God was going to tell me what to do. This is what I heard: There is a book in you that only YOU can write!

Matty’s Paradox

  • IF 1,000 years has passed for each day on earth since the 2nd day,
    • AND the earth is about 6,000 years old.
  • THEN a minimum of 2.19 billion years has passed at the radial distance of the firmament, the remote regions of the cosmos, in the same period of time.

It’s part of a theory of gravity which is at the heart of God’s plan of redemption. Here’s a brief summary of what we can do with it.

Matty’s Paradigm, Harmonization

  1. The broad narrative of scripture:
    • separation of light from darkness,
    • redemption, propitiation and salvation,
    • fulfillment of prophecy.
  2. Empirical observation:
    • earth is the center of the observable universe.
  3. History:
    • earth is about 6,000 years old.
  4. Science:
    • a source of Hydrogen for nucleosynthesis,
    • origin of the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR),
    • a mathematical solution for black holes and dark matter,
    • the sun is less massive than the earth,
    • the remote regions of the cosmos are at minimum 2.19 billion years old,
    • the cosmos may be more than 13.8 billion years old,
    • stars will fall to earth.

Tradition

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Obviously the earth isn’t flat, therefore, the Spirit of Truth can’t lead you to that conclusion. It’s very simple, God isn’t going to expect you to believe something that’s obviously wrong.

Tried Like Silver

For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.

Gravity is the force by which creation is being purified. It lets us reconcile physics, chemistry and biology with the broad narrative of scripture and the concepts of sanctification, refinement and cleansing.

And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

( Luke 18:7-8 ) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for September

As we remember 9/11/2001 God continues to show us the exquisite harmony between the Word of God and our physical reality at the molecular and subatomic level: the fundamental physics of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
