The Cosmos

For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth

Colossians 1:16

In the early 1980s, a prominent astronomer who did not believe in God wrote, “A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a super-intellect has monkeyed with physics, as well as with chemistry and biology.” To this scientist’s eye, the evidence showed that something had designed everything we observe in the cosmos. He added, “There are no blind forces worth speaking about in nature.” In other words, everything we see looks as if it was planned by Someone. And yet, the astronomer remained an atheist.

Three thousand years ago, another intelligent man looked at the skies and drew a different conclusion. “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is mankind that you should be mindful of him? . . ” wondered David (Psalm 8:3-4).

Yet God cares for us deeply. The universe tells the story of its Intelligent Designer, the Super Intellect who made our minds and put us here to ponder His work. Through Jesus and His creation, God can be known. Paul wrote, “ For by Him (Christ) all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him."

The cosmos has indeed been created. The identity of the Intelligent Designer is there to be discovered by anyone willing to seek Him.
