Our Creator as the Supreme Engineer

There have been over a million species of life identified so far in the world. And whether you view the originally introduced “kinds” as being represented by genera or species is hard to guess and will likely vary. It definitely is an awe inspiring thought of how all this engineering was accomplished in what to us seems a brief time span.

One thing that I will never do is suggest a model for such a process of design, engineering and introduction (I speak in human terms). To have seen the events as they took place would have no doubt caused me to fall on my face and cried out for mercy!!! The power of His Word was demonstrated clearly while He was here as Messiah Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus, though He was a man, He was always directly connected with His glory since He was without sin from birth. He was always able to reward faith in Him with healings and deliverance from demons and so forth. When Jesus was around the laws of physics went on hold at His will! It is clear that the Creator maintains the current “laws” of physics to provide humanity with a stable environment I suppose. He can alter those “laws” at any moment with His Word.

I cannot guess how the Creator accomplished His creation of His creatures, but I can be sure that it required an immense amount of planning, design, engineering, skill, wisdom, and above all love for all those that would emerge as living creatures on His planet.

How Far We’ve Fallen

A while back I read a book called, “The Light and the Glory”. It was a story about the beginnings of freedom and democracy in the US. On the surface there appeared to be great leaders who trusted the Creator and did great things. But, it didn’t say anything about the sell out to pagan secret “societies”. The push for pagan globalism was at work even in those days but at least there was a certain amount of “official” respect for the laws of God and the people of God.

Jesus never taught his disciples to conquer their enemies, but rather to bless them. Now we have supposed Christians arming themselves to the teeth in order to protect themselves from the rising antichristian sentiment in the US and the West. Jesus taught that we need not fear those that can only kill the body, but not the soul. Rather to fear Him who can do both, we should fear Him! Democracy will only work as long as the voting majority respects the laws of God Almighty. The breakdown of this has been rather precipitous of late but the roots of rebellion against the Creator have been there all along.

We say that we have democracy, but in reality our legal system is based on single case “precedents” that determine the “law of the land”. The so-called “separation of church and state” actually established the government as an antichristian system. The more that this travesty is enforced the less practicing Christians can participate which is vital to successful governance in the States. If our Creator does not lead us, we will all fall in the ditch. The US is aligning itself with the crosshairs of the judgment of our Creator.

For years we’ve been tolerating so-called “science” deceiving our children to see themselves as animals instead of God’s special and separate creation. They are taught by the antichristian evolutionist teachers they trust that Christian parents are superstitious fools that should be mocked and disdained. Stripped of any hope past the grave they often choose to live only for the moment and when their conscience gets in the way they cope with chemicals and “extreme” sports, “edgy” music, vulgarity, all too often suicide, and so on.

Where is the answer? All in the teachings of Jesus! As He says,”Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”

What a Wonderful World!

When you really begin to look at the universe around us as the fantastic engineering marvel that it all is (and it IS!) you will begin to see man’s engineering achievements for what they are, very humble at best. Even matter itself is a feat of engineering beyond comprehension or even imagination! It appears that 3 basic entities of the minutist scale are combined with a vast number of variations in a precise way that can be combined to produce things from dust particles to neutron stars and galaxies.

Galaxies were Engineered

The more we learn about His fantastically glorious engineering by the God of the Universe who has allowed us to approach Him thru Jesus and actually speak to Him and learn from Him, the more of a huge privalege it is to be a part of His creation! I can assure you that He takes a very personal interest in each of us. The Lord Jesus said that a sparrow is sold for very little money and yet none of them falls without its Creator’s (the Father) knowledge. So, He continues saying, How much more valuable are you?

We get all up in the air about a species’ extinction and yet we have no investment in the creature’s design and care. The Tasmanian Tiger was a wonderfully engineered creature that was snuffed out by selfish men and yet it could be easily reintroduced by God if He so pleased at any time. He introduced it once, He could do it again. The same applies to T-Rex and Velociraptor and Spiny, though it wouldn’t make our lives very pleasant would it.

We really need to come to grips with whom we are dealing with. Darwin stuck his head in the sand and wooed the world with his lame excuses in “Origin…” and whatnot. He tried to support spontaneous generation with ad-nauseum overworked natural adaptation. It’s time to wake up and realize the crisis mankind is in. “The wages of sin is death.” Our Creator, the Lord of Heaven and earth came as Jesus to pay those wages for all who are willing to believe and follow Him. This is real love.

If you don’t see our Creator’s commitment to us and His universe, you need to start doing so and consider your own debt to Him.

Our Creator as Engineer

Science has been of little real use to humanity. With all of the revelations that have come to light about the awesome engineering that has gone into living things that are all around us, there is almost no credit given to the actual Designer and Sustainer of each and every one.

There’s a huge wealth of engineering invested in all the creatures on this planet that we share. The world of science is a world of dry bones, clouds without rain, trees without fruit… I’ve learned to take everything that comes out of it as hopelessly warped and misleading. Giving credit for the universe and everything in it to the wild fantasy that spontaneous generation is.

If you have any fondness for reality as I do, let’s examine living things in the light of the actual Engineer behind them. Someone that is actually capable of such wonderful things, such feats of design and integration, beauty and efficiency and the accolades could go on infinitely… (“consider the ant and be wise” the scripture says).

How about the beaver? An amazing clever fellow in his own right! They can fell trees all day long with 4 little teeth, dine on the bark and assemble them into complex dam systems that double as dry and secure apartments for mom and dad and several babies and they don’t mind sharing it with several frogs, muskrats and other tennants. Beavers themselves share much of the bodyplan with rats and mice on a gigantic scale and yet they are responsible for cultivating much of the native forests of the American continent! He’s definitely a keystone animal and that is by no doubt a huge design effort and behavioral training on the part of our Creator. The same God that dammed up the sea for the Israelites to pass along the dry seabed with walls of water on both sides as documented in the Book of Exodus.

What about the housefly that so closely resembles the biting stable fly and yet they have completely different mouthparts. Both are wonderfully engineered flying machines again on nearly identical body plans, but serve us in completely diffent ways. Both start out as maggots serving as undertakers and cleanup crews recycling and preventing the spread of disease. One also functions as a cattle prod-and human prod to help prevent an over sedentary existence. Both do what they do extremely well and our lives are better for it.

The Person behind these great achievements is the same that is behind the rest of the universe that spans beyond His planet we call “earth”. All praise and glory must go to Him and Him alone!!

Morality and Democracy

I’ll be 61 years old in a few days. Yet, I can still remember a few of the lessons I learned in college. One in particular from sociology had to do with the concept of right and wrong only the term used was “more'”. No, it’s not the word we use for increase or a kind of mushroom! It’s the root of the word, morality. As I recall, the “mores” are the ethical values of a given culture or society.

So, if you use the  expression, “moral majority” you are essentially repeating yourself if you are someone within that culture. Morality would be the technical, “scientific”, equivalent of , “politically correct” or “go with the flow” in a sense. One of the defining characteristics of any “culture” is its set of “more’s”. So in order to be a moral in one culture you must always break the rules of morality or more’s of another’s. One culture may see wearing socks as offensive, or a taboo, while another may consider those that don’t wear them as offensive or immoral.

So, why does anyone use the phrase, “Moral Majority”? I would think that it reflects a false understanding of the concept unless it truely is an appeal for everyone to become more politically correct. Morality is inherently pleuralistic. Each culture or society has its own.

When it comes to the democratic form of government with its majority rule based on popularity alone, you will always alienate to varying degrees all minority groups under its umbrella. In the US an “electoral college” is used to try to help balance out the influence of more populated states on national election outcomes. Then you also have a handful of elite judges that can overide the will of the people whenever special interests can raise enough stink and they can bend the constitution to support their cause.

The teeth of the American democracy were cut on the backs of hard working pioneers with a strong concensus of mutual cooperation and dependency. A few were devoted Christians and many were at least fond of the christian ethic though unconverted to the faith and disciples of Jesus Himself. Sadly, many of the leaders elected lead dual lives having one foot in “Christianity” and the other in secret pagan societies like the “Freemasons” and such. A practice that was condemned by our Creator as revealed to the prophet, Ezekiel.

The Creator, Jesus of Nazareth will rule over the people of this planet and the universe regardless of who seems in power and so the power of the US democracy has always rested in the will of the majority to comply with the Allmighty God and His commands. It’s all dependent on His blessing which is the highest goal for any nation.

As the scripture says, “seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you”.

Push Away from Sin’s Shore

Each of us has to be responsible for our souls. We have so many years in this life to get things right with our Creator. You have an enormous debt to Him in the form of His creative efforts, His continual care and protection, our failures to acknowledge His love and grace extended to us on a daily basis, the abuse of the most Holy Name of Jesus Christ, the hatred of our fellow human beings which He also created and cares for, your failures to acknowledge the truth that is in Christ and that is revealed thru Him and the list goes on and on.

You need to push away from that selfish, proud shoreline of self-righteousness and place you life back into you Creator’s hands. It is written, “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, all things are passed away behold all things become new!” Your only real fulfillment can come from Him, by leaving the old life behind and trusting Him and asking for His forgiveness. It won’t be easy because this way is straight, the door is narrow and few will stick it out till the end. But, Christ will see you thru if you do your part be obeying Him.

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO SALVATION AND TO OUR CREATOR, CHRIST JESUS! Trying to get in any other way makes you a thief or robber, the Creator will not honor it. I hope that this is abundantly clear! If you are not for Him, you are against Him! Jesus’ death on the cross was to save us from Hell. “The wages of sin is death”, there will be hell to pay if you don’t turn from your way to His way.

I turned to Jesus Christ from my own useless religion of evolutionism to follow my Lord Jesus many years ago and have no regrets about making that choice! Everyone needs to…

Why is Science Rubbish?

Science came about as the result of the knee-jerk efforts of Thomas Huxley and his cohorts in the X-Club. As a result of the reformation of the “church” that was rather more or less dominated by the Roman christianized form of polytheism, the church had reached an all time low in credibility in the public eyes. Huxley saw “evolution” as just the wedge he needed to elimate Christianity and other religions from the face of the earth. He saw the church and it’s teachings as standing in the way of “scientific discovery and progress” or something like that and brought together some of his like-minded friends into the so called X-Club so that plans could be made for the “advancement of science” as the replacement for the church as the guiding light of the world, so to speak.

Since this new “savior” of the world would have to be hard at work converting the masses and leading the flock on to all the greener pastures, it would only be fitting that they get paid and paid well.  When Huxley took over the “Royal Society” he was really able to get his crusade against the church and Christianity into high gear and we see that momentum has been maintained to this day. Has this battle been fought with swords and bullets? No, the battle has been for credibility and trust.

Huxley had fallen to the same basic blunder that the so called, “higher critics” had fallen to. The notion that “ALL THINGS” that are in effect in the universe have always been so throughout the past and will continue to be into the future. The assumption that all “physical laws” are the sole governing forces that exist and are unchanging and universal. The “higher critics” thought that they were in a position to criticize the Holy Bible just as though it was any other piece of literature. They thought that since miracles did not conform to this notion of “uniformitarianism” as they call it and so must be explained away in some manner. Darwin bought into this and so the only way he could account for the life on this planet was to dream of means of putting life here without disturbing those allmighty physical laws.

He thought, hmm living things adapt…. that adaptation can cause changes….them thar changes can accumulate over eons of time to produce whole new forms of life. There you have it, piece of cake!! Sadly, people believed it and Huxley sort of beleived it though he refused to consider himself an atheist.

Anyway, so here you have this monstrosity of an organization that is determined to interpret all of nature and the universe thru darwinian, uniformitarian eyes and impose itself as the worlds ONLY reliable source of truth. But, as you can see, it all rides on the fallicy that there are real “laws of nature” that are eternal and unchangable. If there was even one single “blip” in any of those so-called “laws” an any moment in history. Yes, that’s right, any instance at any point ever then science  and all of its information, discoveries, etc. come into question.

If the “laws” come into question, so does the credibility of everything that we call, “science”. Darwin’s “origin” story becomes just another dubious creation story that makes entertaining fiction, but has no basis in reality. Finches might adapt and change in minor ways, but we know they will never be anything but finches unless they are reengineered by someone that knows what they are doing. No natural process has the ability to turn a finch into a chicken. The fact that such creatures exist are testimony to the fact that the “laws” of nature are at best trends that exist or appear to exist at the present, but nothing should be assumed beyond that.

Suddenly, all of nature returns to its rightful place, Mystery! What ever you say about it is once again to be viewed as merely a guess. So, if science is knowledge, and we can’t trust any of that knowledge. What good is it?

Making Time

This is an interesting expression. You “make time” by getting somewhere faster then usual. If you go over the speed limit on the way to work and get there 5 minutes earlier than usual, you’ve “made” a little time for your self in a sense. Especially if you’re “running late”! Any way you can stay ahead of schedule “buys” you a little time. What that time is used for depends. You may want to take a nap in order to recover from the anxiety of speeding and “taking those chances”.

There are other ways that we like to “make time”. Making time can be very useful if you make up a theory about past events. What’s a few million years here and there? None of us were there to see if they ever happened. But, tall tales never caught momentum in western civilization the way they have with followers of Darwin. “Natural selection” can create all sorts of new creatures, you just need to create the time needed. (Never mind the fact that nature stubbornly insists on maintaining the status quo.) Still, they say “no problem, just sprinkle that magic time dust over it” as if that could make nature comply to fanciful human notions.

So, if all of this Darwinian stuff IS nonsense, what then? First of all, we don’t have the foggiest how long ago living things first appeared on this planet. Why does it really matter? Second, there is a record of how it got started. I suggest we suffice with the Scriptures and preserve that mystery.

“…redeeming the time, for the days are evil…”

Blueprints

How many blueprint drawings would it take to describe everything about a grasshopper? A few thousand, maybe even a million or more! And yet, there are perhaps 2 million species out there and each one engineered with precision and great care. The means by which this took place none of us can tell.  What steps were involve in this fantastic undertaking?

The God of creation has such a huge monumental investment in His creatures which of course includes us. He also made an enormous investment in the dinosaurs and there came a time when they were no longer needed and they were destroyed. I wonder how our Creator sees this. We grieve at the loss of one species or another even though we have no investment in them. The thylacine, the Dodo, the carrier pigeon etc. have been our victims. How many more will we snuff out?

New Birds in Town!

Birds are such amazing creatures! There are so many shapes and sizes and COLORS! Wow, this year we have been blessed with several tiny blue jewels that at first I thought were blue birds. But, they are too small and a much deeper blue color. They must be indigo buntings. Just as cardinals are redder then red, and Baltimore orioles are oranger then orange, these little guys are bluer then blue!

How Blue can Blue Be?

Not only are they impressive in appearance, they also are full of energy and motion. Being set free from Darwin’s depressingly ignorant fables I can really start to appreciate the vast wealth of wisdom and artistry that all these wonderful creatures represent.  As my Lord Jesus says, “But, wisdom is justified of all her children.”

Thank you Jesus for the fantastic things you have made for us to enjoy and learn from!!
