The Language of the Universe

The WORD became flesh is so much more than an IDEA.

It is a PERSON, a joining of the laws of nature, the laws of God, humanity and divinity.

A virgin conceived: the merging of supernatural and natural.
The word became flesh: God’s thoughts and desires and power got eyes and ears and feet.

The LOGOS

In times past, the idea of reason actually existing “out there” was developed by non-Christian philosophers and thinkers. Philo, Marcus Aurelius, Heraclitus…men such as these were grappling with this idea they had, which natural theology brought them to, of a…

Single Unifying Principle

…the Source of order, the Source of reason and intellect, somehow connected to God.

Saint John begins his gospel with the concept of LOGOS becoming flesh. The ideas that had been spinning around found concrete reality in Christ. Through John, God also clarifies at the beginning of John’s first epistle:

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us—  that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete. 1 John 1:1-4

JOY TO THE WORLD!

Nature*s Call

I am grateful for the work of Hugh Ross, Fuz Rana, and others at Reasons to Believe. Their ministry has enabled me to understand more of this world, natural and philosophical, and the apologic it carries:

The heavens declare the glory of God,
    and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
    and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
    whose voice is not heard.
Their voice[b] goes out through all the earth,
    and their words to the end of the world.  Psalm 19

In this season of remembering the Logos, make sure to remember that it was not only angels declaring the praises and message of God. Nature was there as well, the STAR joined in the announcement.

(this links to a theory as to what the star was)

Merry Christmas! In all you do this season, may your hearts be drawn closer to the:

Immanuel, God with us.

Outliers

We have all been hit by OUTLIERS.  In school, when the teacher grades on a curve, outliers are the death of our grade. Everyone bombs a test, but because one kid gets a 90 it knocks down everyone else's grade. The phenomenon of OUTLIERS is an important topic to...

Stricken, Smitten and Afflicted in a World God Made

“Why did God make Satan?” Recently, a young Turkish mother posed this question to my husband, the pastor of The Protestant Church of Smyrna. She pointed out that Chaos was in the waters of Genesis 1, and asked, “ Where did that Chaos come from?”  These are...

3D Mona Lisa

I learned today, in this article and some other related research, that a second Mona Lisa painting is suspected of being another side of a 3D experience. If anyone could pull this off, it would be Leonardo DaVinci. I focused my eyes between these two pictures and was...

Where Is God as the World Rages?

Exodus 3:9 is a strange verse. Where was God, those 400 years that “finally” he heard, finally he saw? Was he busy on the other end of the universe—perhaps evidence that we are not alone, not so very special? Evidence that God needed 400 years to take care of some...
