Words we are told in the Bible contain all the power, blessings and curses in the universe. Not in an Opera Winfrey style, where we use ‘positive’ words like spells to speak prosperity on ourselves and others and avoid ‘negative’ words (often truth itself). This is clearly nonsense and the stuff God hates and the Bible describes as sorcery.
No – I mean the real words of truth, words of healing and restoration of spirit and mind – and often healing of body as a result of the former two. When we look at man, made in the image of God – we hear order in his words, we see order or chaos as a result of words he says or even leaves unsaid – and we even see word-like code in the ‘computer program’ used and admitted by scientists to be such to create the book of life – DNA.
The world is characterised by logos – the word. Now that this logos has appeared in flesh, we are simply asked; will we accept this God-man’s words as proof of God’s intelligence, truth and pre-ordained order – or reject them a false and try to reduce everything to numbers, chance and chaos?
In my book, anything obviously highly ordered such as DNA – the book-like computer code that Bill Gates – the man who wants to make us all gods in our own lunch-breaks described as “more complex than any computer program ever made by man”, has to come from intelligence and a mind – there is no alternative, regardless of the fact that have not been enough years in the existence of the cosmos for any of it to have happened by chance in the first place. The last point also tell us where and why theories such as multiple universes have come about; namely when one theory fails to disprove God’s existence – invent another. Either that or submit to the judgment of our sins by a personal God!
