God’s love in precision
If God’s righteousness is displayed in the heavens, modern science has been showing us how vast is His righteousness.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory.
Through the innovation of technology we get to look light years into deep space see how the heavens declare the glory of God.
Man has learned how precise God has put the heavens together. If we were but a little bit closer to the sun life would not exist on earth. If we were but a little bit further from the sun, again we would have no life on earth. If the earth axis and rotation was not what it is, we would not have the weather we do have making life impossible again. If our solar system was closer to our galactic core than it is we would have too much exposure to the violent nature of the cosmos. We seem to be tucked away very nicely in the exact location and circumstances that we need to be in for life to exist.
We see this same precision when we look at the atomic level. If the electron rotated any slower or faster around the atom we would have no atoms. If the nuclear bond was any weaker or stronger we would have no atoms. I have not tried to be technical, but in the simplest way show how God has done a very precise work that can not and should not be altered if mankind or creation is to exist at all.
Do we now go from the vastness of the created universe with all of its precision and working laws of science, that God has put in place, and zoom down to earth to a book and declare His work in this book is not exact? Are we to believe God is exact in His creation that declares His righteousness and glory, but in His book that declares His love it is not so exact?
Believe it or not there are Christians who advocate this very thing when they teach the doctrine of men. Can you believe that men actually teach that John 3:16 doesn’t mean what we read?
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Through a perverted doctrine concerning election they advocate that God did not send His son to the world but to those elect who are in the world. They teach that whoever does not mean an open invitation to all mankind to receive Christ, but only the elect. They throw out all kinds of reasons and equally unbiblical uses of scripture derived from the reason of man to support such a position.
Through the reason of man they want us to believe that God did not send His Son to the whole world and that an open invitation is not given to all mankind. That world doesn’t mean world and that whoever doesn’t mean whoever.
We can see the in the simplest way that God is precise in what He has done to establish a home for mankind in the heavens. We can see His exacting handiwork even in the examination of the smallest details found in the atoms. And this incredibly accuracy is found in something that is temporal and will be burned up.
Yet in His word we have believers that assume God can not and has not communicated His love to us with such accuracy in His eternal word. These same believers want us to believe that “if” doesn’t mean perhaps or the place of decision but rather to mean “since”. By hold to and advocating their doctrines upon the hearts of men who would put their hope in Christ, they offer a twisted convoluted idea of God’s love to mankind.
I urge believers to trust God to mean what He says and say what He means in His word. If God is able to hold creation in His hands with such precision, is He not able to hold His word in His hands with such precision too? Men will take you down roads of reason and doctrine that starts out biblically but then will imply or say stands to reason. I say. let’s just stick to what the text says.
For God so loved the world that He gave His Son, our Logos, to us in perfection so that in His open invitation to mankind He is willing that none be lost when we as sinners repent and put our hope in Him.
Be encouraged, those who were burned at the stake during the reformation did not die in vain as they laid down their lives so we can read the scriptures in our own language. God who is the originator of language did not cut Himself or the representation of Himself out of His word in our translation. There is no hidden meaning in the word “world”, “whoever” or even “if”.
We can trust the Holy Spirit to teach us all things in Christ. We who trust and believe God at His written word are like David who apposed not only a giant, but a whole nation who had God figured wrong. So be bold in the Holy Spirit and proclaim the written word of God as the Holy Spirit reveals it to you in opposition to the more educated and established institutions built on the doctrines of men. Remember the exactness of His temporal creation, God’s love communicated to us is even more precise.
