An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Word for the Day: Immutable

(Pro 8:29 KJV)  When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

God has given His “command” (6310) to the ocean.  We are looking at one of the reasons that modern science developed in Christian Europe and not in the pagan world.  In the pagan world the tides would be explained as some kind of childish conflict between man-like gods.  It would not be of any value to study the tides because the gods might have a different temper tantrum next week.  Christians look at the ocean as bound by the one true God, the Creator.  That creator is immutable.  That means unchanging.  Since you can take that to the bank the scientific method made sense.  Eventually scientists caught on.

So?  We still have a lot to learn.  The part that modern scientists are refusing to learn is the moral law that goes along with the physical laws.  Both come from an unchanging God.
