DNA, Godís Holy Book

Article#: 637

Time after countless time, the Word of God, which has been ridiculed by the spiritually blind, is continually certified as holy truth by modern discoveries. No other so-called holy book, man's writings, or philosophical insight has ascended to such heights—none—nor shall it ever be achieved.

This new century has been agog with science's foray into the reading of the human genome. The door to understanding human DNA has swung wide open. But there is a huge difference between "discovering" something versus "creating" that same something. The Lord God Jehovah of the Holy Bible created all visible things out of that which is invisible.

Imagine, thousands of years before science discovers something, the God who created it described it in His word. DNA has its general description recorded in Psalms Chapter 139, Verses 14-17, GOD SAID, by the mouth of the psalmist:

14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

MAN SAID: No God, no Holy Bible; therefore no answers or insights.

Now THE RECORD. Human DNA is approximately 6 feet long and so infinitely thin that it is estimated that all the human DNA in the world would fit into one single aspirin tablet. One gram of DNA molecules could hold as much information as can be contained on a trillion CDs. Only the infinite wisdom of God could create such a marvel of design, order, and miniaturization.

Your DNA molecule is a 3.3 billion-letter book, equivalent to 900 Bibles. God's Word states, "...and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them." Every phenomenal instruction for the construction of your body, starting from a single invisible fertilized egg, is recorded in the DNA strand - and that's before any of your body's members existed. They were all recorded in God's book.

In a multi-page feature in the publication called Science, the headline read, "Finally, the Book of Life and Instructions for Navigating It."

The sweet psalmist of Israel pens the word of God in Psalms Chapter 139, Verse 14:

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

But pseudo-science said it was chance evolution. A publication of the Institute for Creation Research titled Back to Genesis featured an interview of a molecular biologist that was conducted by George Caylor of the Lynchburg Leader. This molecular biologist is involved in identifying genetic controls for diseases. The biologist spoke on grounds of anonymity, and as you hear or read this short excerpt, the reason why will be obvious. The letter "G" represents the interviewer and the letter "J" the biologist.

G: "Do you believe that the information evolved?"

J: "George, nobody I know in my profession believes it evolved. It was engineered by 'genius beyond genius,' and such information could not have been written any other way. The paper and ink did not write the book! Knowing what we know, it is ridiculous to think otherwise."

G: "Have you ever stated that in a public lecture, or in any public writings?"

J: "No. I just say it evolved. To be a molecular biologist requires one to hold on to two insantities at all times. One, it would be insane to believe in evolution when you can see the truth for yourself. Two, it would be insane to say you don't believe in evolution. All government work, research grants, papers, big college lectures—everything would stop. I'd be out of a job, or relegated to the outer fringes where I couldn't earn a decent living."

G: "I hate to say it, but that sounds intellectually dishonest."

J: "The work I do in genetic research is honorable. We will find the cures to many of mankind's worst diseases. But in the meantime, we have to live with the 'elephant in the living room'."

G: "What elephant?"

J: "Creation design. It's like an elephant in the living room. It moves around, takes up an enormous amount of space, loudly trumpets, bumps into us, knocks things over, eats a ton of hay, and smells like an elephant. And yet we have to swear it isn't there!"

GOD SAID, Psalms 139:14-17:

14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

 

MAN SAID: No God, no Holy Bible, therefore no answers or insights.

Now you have THE RECORD.
