Our natural laws have been discovered and tested by brilliant scientists who have studied cause and effect. They have given us the understanding that anything physical is the effect of some adequate cause. And we have learned that anything which has had a beginning also has an ending. The final conclusion then is that every molecule or sub-atomic particle had a beginning and therefore will eventually have an ending.
Let us notice, and remember, that the effect must have had an adequate cause. This means some effort cannot, within itself, create an effect larger or stronger than the cause. Nor can there ever be an effect without a cause. So, the first physical thing to come into existence had to have a cause.
One may be concerned and work for days in an effort to circumvent that last sentence but it cannot be done. Even the latest effort to by-pass a superior being with the Big-Bang joke cannot be justified because of these factual natural laws. The Big Bang idea is without basis since nothing compacting into such pressure that it explodes and produces all of the universal is nonsense. When there was nothing…there was nothing. No space, nothing to get so compacted, no power to cause the nothing to be compacted, and especially with all of the current massive amount of matter in this universe.
Now with that said, among the first writings which were concerning an omniscient and omnipotent Spirit God, there were no books or other matter describing the above information of cause and effect, or that all matter had to have a beginning. Yet, the writings credited to the hand of Moses gives the only means of the beginning of matter which cannot be refuted, and is clearly presented in a manner which gives credit to an eternal Spirit. No physical matter to explain His existence, yet with the power to do or create anything whatsoever. All writings which comprise the Old Testament have now been in existence for over 2,000 years and having been attacked from its early age until today, not one thing has been proven against it. Not one. And yet it answers all the problems encountered by humans who try to prove it in error.
Often the question is made concerning the above, as to how did God begin? But this is also answered and is logical. God is eternal. With no beginning and no ending. And, he is not physical, there is nothing to decay, to age or to be damaged, ever. Again, one is made to wonder how the early writers could know that this is the only answer. A spirit is a mentality and there is nothing to age, decay or be injured. These early writers were inspired of God to be able to cover this subject even though they were unaware of the cause and effect law.
You see, our physical laws show that one cannot make something from nothing, nor can nothing be made from something. So, this brings on the question of how God was able to create something from nothing. This is where we see that the omniscience and the omnipotent factors come into play. Omniscience simply means that God knows every minute thing there is to be known. He knows the expansiveness of this universe and He knows the precise number of subatomic particles there are in all of this, where each one is located and what part it plays in the system.
The writers of the books of the Bible were neither omniscient or omnipotent. They could only write what was given them via the Holy Spirit. In fact, some of the time, they did not fully understand what was meant by their sayings. The apostle Peter wrote an item concerning the day of the Lord, when the end of time comes and if one reads it carefully, they can see that time is not the only thing which ends. All physical matter will be completely eradicated. Let us read carefully what he said.
“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” (2 Peter 3:10)
Some scientists contend that the matter contained in this universe has always existed as it now is. However, this idea has been dropped by most, especially since the wild guess of the Big Bang came into being. But, it was a foolish idea to begin with. First of all, the energy contained within it would have long since been rendered unusable due to energy deterioration. The proven laws of thermodynamics totally eliminates the possibility of infinite matter and energy.
To all except those who have their minds closed against the Holy Bible, the truths and facts disclosed within it proves over and over that an omniscient mind guided its writers pens. Yet from the beginning, there has always been a huge majority who reject its truths. And the omniscient Holy Spirit foretold that fact also. Read the words of Jesus in the 7th chapter of Matthew, particularly verses 12 through 14.
