In response to Jeff Miller’s letter “Science is mankind’s savior” (Aug. 21): The word “science” is from the Latin scientia, meaning knowledge. Miller’s last sentence was, “Have you any substantive questions for me?”
How can you have knowledge and not believe in an awesome Creator?
Wisdom and knowledge always was with the Creator – no beginning or end; an eternal cycle.
When the universe was created, multiple galaxies were put in place. Earth was put in one galaxy, in orbit around the sun at an ideal distance to control the temperature and to support the longevity of all living trees, herbs, plants and animals; and the creation of land, water and mankind.
Earth’s rotation has the right spin so it won’t get too hot or cold, and the right tilt to control the seasons, and equinoxes in spring and fall to correct orbital time. Earth’s water cycle replenishes us. Earth was equipped with fossil fuels and minerals in the first Earth age before the present Earth age.
Look around – everything you see came from the elements of Earth, even mankind.
It is written:
“My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.” (Psalms 139:15-16)
Knowledge of the truth provides a way to keep your members written in the book and not be blotted out.
Mankind was created in the image of the Creator, having a programmed brain to control body functions, and a mind to add programs to the brain. Mind is synonymous with spirit, which is a free agent to program the brain. Knowledge was given only to mankind.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) Don’t refuse this offer! He is known in English as Jesus.
Religions are manmade with false teachings and traditions, with different names and denominations. Some even claim the name “Christian.” The nearest we can get to the truth is the Scriptures bound in the Bible, which is the Creator’s instruction book. Don’t just read it – study it and ask for the Spirit of the Creator to guide and help you understand.
