Considerations ~ When Blind Scientists See

Before accepting a claim from the scientific community, we must first ask whether we are talking about blind scientists or seeing scientists. God, the creator of all that science explores, declares, “In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God (II Corinthians 4:4). The reason that brilliant-minded scientists believe in evolution, or take their stand as atheists, is not because of what they see, but because of what they do not see.

If the blind scientists could see what the open-eyed scientists see, they would affirm what God’s word has already made abundantly clear, For by him (Jesus) all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:16-17).

They would also give their “Amen” to this glorious description: “In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made” (John 1:1-3). Once we “see” this reality by faith, we will add our hearty affirmation to what a skeptic of old declared when his eyes were opened to the authenticity of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. He stated the obvious in a most personal way when he declared, My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28)

We are obviously invited to do the same.
