Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
Carl Sagan, has repeatedly said, “The Cosmos is all that there is. It is all that there ever was and all there ever will be.” I want to think about the statement for a moment, If the Cosmos is all that has ever been and all that ever will be, that would mean that the Cosmos is eternal.
Now that is not a very scientific statement coming from a brilliant man of Carl Sagan’s stature. In the first place, it mirrors the ancient Hindu philosophies and it contradicts the scientific law of entropy increase.
A far more scientific statement and one which agrees with all observable scientific data would be this; In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Now that fits the facts and satisfies the heart.
But I’m afraid that is the problem for our friends who believe in the myth of evolution, and can believe in intrically designed life emerging magically from non-life and without a Designer – you see, you either have to believe in eternal matter, or an Eternal God, and believing in God leaves you vulnerable to having to face Him – maybe that’s why they only believe in the Cosmos.
