“Apr 19, 2016 – The argument is that mathematical laws, in order to be properly relied upon, must have attributes which indicate an origin in God. They are true everywhere (omnipresent), true always (eternal), cannot be defied or defeated (omnipotent), and are rational and have language characteristics (which makes them personal).”
GOD created us with intelligence – language, scientific abilities, engineering skill, medical skills; we share, teach, develop things; we are conscious; we are self aware; sentient beings. We are subject to the rules of physics that GOD created and that can be explained by mathematics. What we do not know or understand we very well may come to know There is something we should not forget however:
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
SONG: Ben Eaton – Higher are Your ways Isaiah 55:8-9 Scripture Memory Song
GOD must be larger then everything or we completely misunderstand everything because that may not be relevant, why? We think in terms of the physical world we can touch, taste smell or hear but, we have a hard time with the extremely large and the extremely small. The visible Universe is so vast I scarcely believe any human can truly grasp it. The extremely small down to the quantum level is equally difficult to grasp by any human I know. Yet, GOD is the creator and has sovereign control of the dominion we call the Universe.
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPI7WbPyoM8been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Can we know? As a Christian I trust what the Bible explains about our GOD and have the Faith to accept it. Without this belief and trust, a human _cannot truly understand or worse, scoff at believers. With an attitude such as that they cannot accept what the Scriptures teach. First they must confess, repent accept Jesus and receive The Holy Spirit so they can enjoy salvation and understand what we Christians believe to be true as presented in The Holy Bible.
The football game was tied and the home team had the ball; oh no they fumbled and the other team ran the ball all the way for a touchdown. We know that as a “sudden death” tie breaker. The judgement? The home team lost and the visiting team won. A more dire situation? Oh I will accept GOD (Jesus) when I get old; I am not ready (to give up sinning ) now. Bzzzzzzzzz!
TOO LATE; the head on collision killed them instantly. Now before GOD and the judgement.
What good old days are is immensely subjective of course; for whom; where; when. Times of war, famine, natural disaster, pandemics or when little existed to defend, ward off or assist victims of whatever.
10Say not, “Why were the former days better than these?” For it is not from wisdom that you ask this.
