We had an interesting discussion the other day. I wonder if, in today’s age of technology advancing at lightning speeds, people might find it easier to believe in God? Less and less do people think that just because something can’t be explained, it can’t have happened. They see how so many things were totally unimaginable just a few years ago. The thought arises: perhaps every miracle we’ve heard and seen God do that is so beyond our scientific minds, will one day be totally explainable (and that “one day” NOT referring to Heaven).
When I look at Creation, I just know there’s a Designer involved; and when Jesus was here on earth “he sent his word and healed”–why shouldn’t the power that created the world be able to just speak healing, even from a distance? That’s all fine, some would say, but there is also a totally scientific explanation for it all that we just haven’t reached yet. Well, I suppose that may be true… After all, God gave us minds capable of learning so much. As long as we don’t think we can become equal to God at some point.
But I like what our pastor said yesterday: “I want a God who is so Big that he is unexplainable.” Because if we could explain God, would he be God?
“Friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves cozy in it. Don’t indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then they’ll be won over to God’s side and be there to join in the celebration when he arrives.” (1 Peter 2:11-12)
