The Great Debate

Job 20: 3 I have heard the check of my reproach, and the spirit of my understanding causeth me to answer.

Science vs. Faith

I had to find it funny, yes ha ha funny not ironic funny, that this day and age the force of wanting/needing to debate faith and science still holds a strong-arm in society. I know people who state, “I believe in God, I read the bible, I have faith, but I also need ‘PROOF’!”

Isn’t that funny? They have faith but need proof? Faith is believing in things unseen not things that are a proven fact, a proven fact by who, scientist? No wonder it’s a great debate. I bet scientists win hands down!

I’ve had this debate with myself ever since seeing my first shooting star, and that was many, many moons ago. But you know what? As you can tell in my posts, God always won, not some scientist. Why? Because God proves Himself to those who have faith and they don’t need some human defining scientific theory to them to make their belief stick.

You know what, I believe in the Big Bang theory! I believe God was the force behind the push that propelled the universe to take shape and form. When I was about seventeen years old I was really digging into Quantum Physics, reading about science, astrology, astronomy; I was always questioning God, and wouldn’t you know it, in God fashion, He was always answering me, amazing, huh?

I delve into the spiritual world, clashed with the forces, and not one time was I seeking proof, I was acknowledging that it existed. That is what science does for faith to ME, in all their studies trying to PROVE God’s existence, they are solidifying my faith and all that I believe and am shown.

The scientist can define a string theory, they can feed us lies that say there are nine planets, then change that theory through further study and make us tell our kids that Pluto is NOT really a planet. As much as scientist want us to believe that God’s message is confusing, they PROVE His existence daily though all their studies and confusion.

One minute there are nine planets, the next there are eight. One minute a black hole then the next thing you know, scientists claim they don’t exist. Scientist are the ones confused, God has been the same since the beginning of time, yes millions and millions of years ago, God was the same exact SPIRITUAL FORCE that he is today.

Has science proved that energy exists? Yes! Have they proved that atoms, protons, photons and electrons exist? Yes! Do they realize they proved God exists in these findings? No! They need to dig and dig and dig further. To me, the more they dig into the physics of the compilation of the universe, the deeper they are proving God exists.

Ok now lets talk spirit. Define spirit:

: the force within a person that is believed to give the body life, energy, and power
: the inner quality or nature of a person
: a person
:  an animating or vital principle held to give life to physical organisms

Actually I’d like YOU to go to the dictionary, search spirit. That’s all, just spirit.

THIS is what the scientists are looking for! They are not looking to prove the bible, they are not looking to psychology of the mind to define God, they obviously are looking in  all the wrong places for God, OUT THERE! They are in actuality searching for SPIRIT!!!

Here’s a concept: The bible WAS NOT written FOR scientist! It was not written so thousands of years down the line a scientist could dissect it and find dissension. People, humans, told the stories in the bible. Humans err, scientist err, it’s a part of life. I can dissect science and prove where they erred too. Guess what, scientist are humans too!
What a concept!

Another concept: The bible was written BY man FOR man. The driving force behind the writing was the same spiritual force that created the universe. When a scientist defines that spiritual force maybe I’d give them more credit, but as it is, they can’t dissect spirit, they can’t prove the non-existence of spirit, so therefore all their studies and theories hold no weight.

I can prove spirit exists. I know there is a spiritual force inside me causing me to think, to eat, to drink, to love, to hate (wait that’s a different spiritual force) to feel, to BE, to thrive in a natural world, and see beauty in every living organism. THAT my friends is a spiritual force that not even YOU can deny.

So in all this effort in trying to prove in this physical world, through physical human beings that God doesn’t exist, why not try and prove spirit doesn’t exist? It will never happen because WE are a tiny molecule of the whole of God. WE are a part of the same spiritual force that created the world. If you have faith in God, you are believing in yourself. Let me make one thing clear – GOD IS NOT A RELIGION!

Faith is believing without (seeing) proof needed!

Put that in your beaker and burn it!

1 John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

1 John 4:13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

Science should stick to the physical world - discovering how things work, and so on - not the Spiritual, which is not of the same substance. But they will do what they wish. It's like trying to explain a philosphy when it does not include God. No philosophy is worth any thing outside of God.

Good post, Joni! :D

Pluto is, TOO, a planet! ;)

I was just thinking the same thing this morning. A friend called upset about their job and managers. There was so much drama between coworkers and managment. I asked if she prayed about and does she believe in God's word. They took offense in the question. not understanding the reason for the question.
"IF WE SAY WE BELIEVE" in God, his Word the trust him.... Try him at his word!
