The Invisible Things

For the invisible things of him ... 
since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; 

that they may be without excuse:  because that, knowing God, they glorified him not as God, neither gave thanks; 

but became vain in their reasonings, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. 

Romans 1:20-22

Think about it.
Man is no more of an accident than the flight of a jetliner is by accident … 
and when a computer flys the jetliner, it is NOT by accident either.

God’s Word declares that; "if we wish to become wise we must become foolish so that we may become wise. And that the wisdom of the world is foolishness with God." Have you ever wondered what this means and why God would say this?

A couple of years ago, a successful businessman paid a record $3,456,789 to have lunch with Warren Buffett. The foolishness of men has no limits. As if Buffett could somehow wave a magic wand and make him wise by revealing his secrets of the world at lunch. I hope the man had a good lunch, because that is a huge price to pay for insights that God defines as foolishness. Especially since the wisdom of the Creator is available to each of us at any time for no cost.

What type of wisdom is God speaking of here? What are the invisible things God speaks of here? The invisible things are everything that we cannot see with our eyes. Man has two forms of perception: visual and mental. Our mental perception sees the invisible through the functioning of our mind combined with our senses.

God doesn’t just understand our perceptions … He created all of the visible and invisible things, and has made them known to us. How does this happen? Those things that we hear, smell, touch, and taste, we cannot see with our eyes but God has given us the ability to see through the perception of our minds. This truth did not just happen by chance. Our ability to reason and understand is not an accident. Both are miracles of God.

We can both see and smell the flowers … and we can taste and see, as well as smell fresh cookies baking in the oven. These are good examples of perceptions we do not need to visually see to understand. Sometimes, we can even tell the type of flower or cookie without looking with our eyes. Men have further explored many of these things to better understand through the various sciences; but while we have learned a lot in the past couple of hundred years, the most advanced computer will never remotely understand or compare to the human brain.

But God has made known to us that the invisible things the brain does are real, and we haven’t a clue as to how it works or how God created the brain to guide the functions of our body. We have a pretty good memory, but God knows our every thought from the beginning to the end of our lives.

Science understands how some of the elementary things work, and have created theories as to how the invisible things work, but God’s Word says; “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are worthless.” Is there any wonder why the secular world does not acknowledge God? He declares that the thinking of our wisest men is foolishness and worthless in His eyes. Why does God say these things?

Well, God is angry. He has made all of His amazing creations of the universe … those things that are seen and the invisible things visible as well, and what does the world do with these miracles He has revealed to them?  Men conger up false reasonings and theories, in their attempt to explain that there is no God. 

Evolution and man-made global warming are only two of many examples. God has total and complete control of the climate. Why can’t men just admit this truth? He is the Creator of the climate and is in total absolute control every moment. When he returns, he has promised to provide us with a new heaven and a new earth. What do we have to fear with a God like this? God has given us oil as energy for our use and the understanding of how to use it and men demonize this amazing gift of God.

Here is one way of understanding..
In Science these invisible things that are beyond seeing or explaining are sometimes referred to as a black box. If you were given a computer that writes only in the Chinese language, you could see it, but you would never be able to understand it by trial and error. This would be especially true a hundred years ago ... long before anyone understood the basic purpose and functions of a computer. It would be total gibberish to you or me.

The words on the screen are a black box sort of like a black hole in outer space. The actual box that the computer comes in is another black box. I would have no idea how to mentally connect the things inside with the results that appear on the outside. There are literally millions of these black boxes that science has yet to discover let alone understand. The things which men do understand are only elementary principles to God.

In science when men get to an invisible thing, they either stop or they create a theory and test it until they find something that logically or by process of experiment provides understanding. Then they make an adjustment in their theory. Darwin’s theory of evolution is filled with more black boxes than we can count. For Darwin and every other scientist of the time, the cell was an insurmountable black box. They had not even looked at or imagined the function or purpose of a molecule or cell.

It was not even until 1931 and the invention of the electron microscope that scientists even began to see and understand the workings and the molecules and cells that form the human body. When Darwin looked at the functioning of the human eye, he was dumbfounded. Since Darwin was unable to even view a cell or a molecule, this black box left him grasping in the dark for his theory of evolution.

The more theories that science builds around this false theory of life, the farther mankind moves away from the eternal truth of God. Molecular biology has demonstrated that the cell is a fully working organism with working parts that need each other to function. With these parts each dependent upon the others, it is impossible for a cell to have evolved.

Normally when scientists open a black box, discoveries reveal new understandings that demand theories must be changed or discarded. Legitimate science is a system of trial, error, discovery, and change. But in the case of evolution, modern secular science is unwilling to bend or even consider changing or to discard this false theory regardless of new discoveries. They refuse to even consider other views or discoveries. This position is actually anti-science.
Why do scientists use circular reasoning and other unscientific methods to support evolution?
