TRUTH or TRADITION?
Paul writes to the Romans: “For the invisible things of him form
the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the
things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that
they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20) Psalms 19:1 records:
“The heavens declare the glory of God;”. Psalms 97.6 states: “The
heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his
Matthew tells us in the second chapter that certain wise men
came to Herod asking about the King of the Jews. They told Herod
“...for we have seen his star...” The Greek word for wise men is
(magi), where we get the word, magician. These were actually
astronomers, who were waiting on the promise of the appearance
of the star signifying the birth of the King of the Jews. Scholars
believe that these men were from the country of ancient Sheba,
where the queen came to Solomon and inquired of his great wis-
dom. It is believed that Solomon prophesied to her about the com-
ing of the Messiah, and that the impact upon her and her court was
so great, that these “observers of the stars” centuries later,
believed in this prophecy and were still looking for His star.
Today, astronomers and scientists are using their greatest knowl-
edge to search the heavens to try either, find God, or disprove His
existence. Man in spending billions and billions of dollars to
explore the universe in the name of science, only to find that each
discovery expands and deepens the truth of the One and Only
Creator. Science will never prove nor disprove His existence. But
one day, when Jesus returns for His bride, millions will be miss-
ing: no evidence of their existence but the pile of clothes and
shoes where each one had stood, laid or sat. Some will know and
wail, for they know they have missed it. Others will scoff and
explain it away, just like they do the scriptures today. But as Paul
said: “...they are without excuse:”
Don’t trust your soul and eternal salvation to tradition. Ask your-
self, WHAT DOES THE BOOK SAY?
