Creation, True Science versus Evolution (5): The Bible and Civilisation

“To the influence of this Book we are indebted for the progress made in civilization, and to this we must look as our guide in the future” – Ulysses Grant (President, 1869-77, of the U.S)

We have said already that the purpose of science at the very best is to echo what is already there in THE BIBLE. Science that has the Bible as compass and anchor is the science that has served the world. At the end of the day true science would have purposefully or inadvertently fallen in line with The Book to drive society positively forward.

That is why Western civilization has owed much to Christianity. Indeed, D. James Kennedy would rightly tell you that modern science grew in only one milieu – Christianity. John Brooke, an Oxford University professor and Jerry Newcombe would even tell you that modern science is a gift from Christianity: what with Blaise Pascal (1623 – 62), Isaac Newton (1642 – 1727), Michael Faraday (1791 – 1867), Samuel Finley Breese Morse (1791 – 1872), Matthew Fotaine Maury (1806 – 1873), Louis Pasteur (1822 – 95), Joseph Lister (1827 – 1912) and innumerable others who gave us civilization! All, leading scientists of this age, they were ardent Christians with rare reverence for God and His only Word: the Bible. Indeed, while Blaise was to dedicate much of his life and writings to persuading free thinkers, so-called, of the truth of Christianity, Newton – the foremost scientific mind of all time – would say that the solar system comes from an intelligent being called God.

Mention must be made of Mark Finley’s book: Prayer Makes a Difference, where he revealed that medical research has shown a wonderful and startling positive relationship between prayers and healing of patients. God is in control, His Bible, the safeguard and compass! We cannot but agree therefore with Ulysses Grant (1822 – 1885), the 18th President of the United States (1869 – 1877) that to the Bible we are indebted for progress in science and civilization and to it we must look for our guide in the future.

That is to say, the ‘future’ dimension is critical in the whole matter. God did not only make all things, He and the heavens do rule – Daniel 4: 25, 26. And if God created and rules He sure has a purpose and direction. AND AN OMNISCIENT GOD HAS BEEN SO GOOD AND GRACIOUS TO LET US INTO HIS MIND AND WHAT LIES AHEAD. HE HAS THUS GIVEN US THE BIBLE! God rules beyond now; He rules and governs eternity; God has the world’s trend and future wrapped up in Scriptures. He that knows the end from the beginning has told us the way and course of this world. The safest thing in the entire world to do is “to search out the Scriptures”, and that is even Bible admonition. Just as evolutionists don’t know how the world began, they don’t know beyond the now! They cannot even fantasise!

Igho writes from Warri.
