Speculation, or Revelation?

Much of modern science, as with religion, bases their conclusions on speculation. How true are Paul’s words to Timothy, written almost 2,000 years ago, about the “oppositions of science falsely so called” (I Timothy 6:20). This is in stark contrast to the captive children of Israel in Babylon who were “skillful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science” (Daniel 1:4) and thereby eventually glorified God.

So, there are “profane and vain babblings” of “false science” in order to explain away the facts regarding God and His wonderful creation, or there is the witness of “true science” whose conclusions always point to the Creator of the universe and all that is in it – including us.

Science Falsely So-Called

Instead of making the Bible agree with science, science must agree with the Bible. If it does not, it is only because it is “science falsely so-called” [I Timothy 6:20] and not real science. Scientia is the Latin word for “knowledge.” Whereas very much of what goes by the name of “science” today is not science at all. It is only hypothesis! Read man’s books on this so-called “science,” and you will get tired of the never-ending repetition of such words as “hypothesis,” “conjecture,” “supposition,” etc., etc. This is the reason that such theories, which are falsely dignified by the name of science, are constantly changing. We talk of the “Science of Geology,” or of “Medical Science”; but read books on geology or medicine, for example, written fifty years ago, and you will find that they are now quite out of date. Yet truth cannot change. Truth will never be out of date. What we know can never alter! This of itself proves that the word “science” is wrongly used when it is applied only to hypotheses, which are merely invented to explain certain phenomena. It is not for such theories that we are going to give up facts. It is not for conjectures that we are going to abandon truth.

Biblical history is wonderful not only because of what it contains but because of what it leaves out. It makes much of Moses and little of Egypt. It gives prominence to Daniel and none to Babylon. It notes Paul the prisoner in a Roman cell and ignores the pomp and glory of imperial Rome. Why? Because it is a history of the things that “mattered.” Moses mattered – Egypt did not. Daniel mattered – Babylon not. Paul mattered – not so Rome. Paul and his fellow-saints were more wonderful than all the Caesars of Rome.

Daring to Challenge “Eternal Life”

Hebrew and Greek scholars know that there is no word in the Bible corresponding to our “eternal,” which, as commonly used among us, means unending. Most theologians know this too, but they don’t teach it. Only one who is willing to stand for truth for truth’s sake and is willing to be branded a fanatic would dare to challenge the translation “eternal life.”

The ministry among the Dispersion ended in the imprisonment of Paul. … The final crisis is at Rome. On an appointed day the representative Jews come to Paul in great number. Another appeal is made and scorned. The sentence of rejection spoken secretly in Matthew is now publicly pronounced. Israel is shut up in disobedience. A monument is erected on the site. On one side thereof are written Isaiah’s fearful words. On the other, “The salvation of God is sent to the Nations.”

I am so tired by the things said about God. I understand God’s patience with the wicked, but I do wonder how He can be so patient with the pious.

The Sign Gifts

Ever since the Apostle Paul informed the Corinthians that the sign gifts were to pass away(I Corinthians 13:8), attempts have been made by sincere people to revive them. All such efforts of courage have ended in failure and disrepute for the church at large.

Though it is true that these gifts were at one time a part of God’s program for the sign nation (1:22), they ended when God finally set His favored people aside (Acts 28:28). One will look in vain for any mention of the “sign” gifts in the epistles of Paul written after the “Acts” period.

It is sometimes suggested that if believers today were as spiritual as they should be, gifts would abound. This, we submit, is not so. Of all of the churches to whom the apostle wrote, the Corinthians were the most un-spiritual. They were contentious (I Corinthians 1:11); they permitted fornication in their midst (5:1); brother went to law against a brother (6:1-8); and they were disorderly at the Lord’s Table (11:17-22).

Small wonder that he writes to them,

And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ (I Corinthians 3:1).

Yet, in spite of all of this carnality, they had the sign gifts in abundance (chapters 12, 14). Surely it was not because they were spiritual.
