Observing Truth

Archaeology and Science are uncovering Truths of God’s creation from the sub-atomic level to the vastness of space. The Anthropic Principle states that the universe is specifically tailored for man’s benefit; on this point, some astronomers and Scripture agree. Genesis 1:26 states, “And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Two major tenants of Science are observation and hypothesis; albeit, merely dissecting and cataloging an object or animal does not reveal its genesis or life-force, this is where fact meets faith. God’s fingerprints are apparent on every quark-sized bit of His Creation. In the dead social emptiness left by Postmodernist movement, the world is hungry for truth. Our task as Christians is to know our Father through His Word and to communicate this Truth to the world in an intelligent method.

Archaeology has uncovered a body of documents since 1935 known as the Lachish Letters. These documents consist mostly of ostraca, or shards of pottery, inscribed in ink. They are record of the time period before the fall of Jerusalem in 586 B.C. Interestingly, an imprint of the seal of Gedaliah, a property owner, was discovered in Lachish. This melds seamlessly with the Scripture, that records the name of Gedaliah in II Kings 25:22, "And as for the people that remained in the land of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had left, even over them he made Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, ruler"(McDowell, TNE, 114).

There is much material evidence that speaks of the truth of The Bible's inerrancy, but the genuine test of its veracity is the undeniable effect of it on men's life.
