Alpha and Omega
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”(Revelation 1:8) ESV
If God can be trusted, and his promise to us is that He can be, then it will be possible to demonstrate a perfect harmonization between what the Bible teaches us and the world around us.
There’s a glaring incongruity in the belief system of theologically conservative Christians. On one hand they regard the Bible as the inerrant Word of God which is more essential than food to sustain daily life. They believe that it contains wisdom and advice that can meet any need in any situation. They believe that the canon of scripture is closed and that there’s no new revelation. The Bible, as it is, is everything we need because God has perfectly preserved His revelation to us.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
On the other hand talk to them about science and all of a sudden there is a blanket of fog in between what the Bible says and the world we live in.
By contrast the academic war machine has conquered the intellectual ground of our generation and filled our minds with Star Trek and Star Wars. The peer review propaganda mill has crafted a pseudoscientific narrative of godless existence which is a validation of the Star Trek universe. We refer to it as SciPop. That’s the world we think in. It’s not the world we live in, it’s imaginary. The modern human frame of reference is far out in the western spiral arm of the galaxy, as charmingly expressed by Douglas Adams.
Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.– Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think that [iPhones] are a pretty neat idea.
Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.– Faith, definition
Atoms and molecules have been scrutinized, analyzed, and woven into a false godless paradigm. SciPop. We’re going to take God at His word that the Bible is sufficient, and then examine atoms and molecules for ourselves. We’re going to use deductive reasoning. We’ll demonstrate the use of a technique that we call deductive questioning. Whatever we deduce will have value if it’s consistent with the broad narrative of scripture. We use the principle that God can’t lie and the bible is true, examine primary sources of evidence, and deduce the relationship between Alpha and Omega. This gives us a way to understand the Holy Trinity as first cause.
