Ever Learning

Article#: 646

For over 6,000 years, the carnal world's greatest minds have attempted to debunk the Words of God found in the majority-text Holy Bible. They have failed time after miserable time. Satan originated today's mantra in the Garden of Eden, when he challenged the Scriptures and said to our great-grandmother Eve, "Yea, hath God said?" Today the question persists and the answer is the same, "Yes, God hath said!"

NOW FOR TODAY’S SUBJECT.

GOD SAID, II Timothy 3:7:

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

GOD SAID, I Corinthians 1:18-21:

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

MAN SAID:  Man is the creator of God and man’s great intellect is our strength. Man is all there is.  According to man, we evolved over billions of years without any input of God. One of man's latest discoveries is that we are related to the banana.

Now THE RECORD: God said that unrepented man is, "ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." The following examples will prove the veracity of this statement and the Word of God in general.

Hebrews 11:3:

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

The following comment was found in the New Scientist in an article by Harold Pathoff, titled "Everything for Nothing:"

And now to the biggest question of all, where did the Universe come from? Or, in modern terminology, what started the big bang? Could quantum fluctuations of empty space have something to do with this as well? Edward Tyron of the City University of New York thought so in 1973 when he proposed that our Universe may have originated as a fluctuation of the vacuum on a large scale, as "simply one of those things which happen from time to time." This idea was later refined and updated within the context of inflationary cosmology by Alexander Vilenkin of Tufts University, who proposed that the universe is created by quantum tunneling from literally nothing into the something we call the Universe.

MAN SAID that all has been created out of basically nothing.

GOD SAID that He created all that you see out of that which is invisible. Man is getting close, but still never coming to the knowledge of the truth.

In six days, God created all that you see. The host of Heaven was created on the fourth day for the purpose of serving the earth. The earth is the center of attention.

Stephen Hawking, in his book, A Brief History of Time, seems to be tripping over the truth:

Now at first sight, all of this evidence that the universe looks the same whichever direction we look in might seem to suggest there is something special about our place in the universe. In particular, it might seem that if we observe all other galaxies to be moving away from us, then we must be at the center of the universe. There is, however, an alternate explanation: the universe might look the same in every direction as seen from any other galaxy, too. This, as we have seen, was Friedmann's second assumption. We believe it only on grounds of modesty: it would be most remarkable if the universe looked the same in every direction around us, but not around other points in the universe!

GOD SAID in Genesis 1:3:

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

During the creation week, this act took place on the very first day, yet the sun, moon and stars were not created until the fourth day. So GOD SAID light before the sun.

In Science Digest, the following paragraph was found:

A. G. W. Cameron, a Goddard Institute lecturer and professor at Yeshiva University of New York, suggests that the creation of the solar system might have occurred in a matter of a few thousand years. Indeed, he suggests, it might have taken place so rapidly that the earth and some of the planets could have formed shortly before the sun did—which, in view of traditional thought, is a revolutionary proposal.

Victor Weisskopf, Professor Emeritus and Former Head, Physics, MIT, had this to say in an article titled, "The Origin of the Universe:"

Indeed, the Judeo-Christian tradition describes the beginning of the world in a way that is surprisingly similar to the scientific model. Previously, it seemed scientifically unsound to have light created before the sun. The present scientific view does indeed assume the early universe to be filled with various kinds of radiation long before the sun was created.

GOD SAID that man is made out of dirt. Genesis 2:7:

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

And then again in Job10:9:

Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?

So then God created us out of dirt and informed us of it thousands of years ago.

Now here comes the science.

In a recent Newsweek magazine article titled, "Life From Clay?," the following story was printed:

As if the Biblical tale of man's creation from "the dust of the ground" were haunting their unconscious minds, NASA chemists have presented evidence that life on Earth may have gotten its start in clay. They have shown that clays attract the organic molecules that make up protein and DNA, the ingredients of life, possibly from the sea during high tides. The clays might then trigger chemical reactions that string the building blocks into proteins and DNA.

The latest experiments show how, according to NASA's Lelia Coyne, clays scavenge energy released by such natural processes as radioactive decay. They store the energy in the form of trapped electrons and then release it when subjected to stress—an earthquake, for example, or from wetting and drying as the tides rise and recede. Says Coyne, the ability of clays to store energy, catalyze reactions and perhaps self-replicate—all attributes of living systems—"is forcing us to re-examine at a very fundamental level the definition of life."

Ever learning but never reaching the source of all truth.

The Holy Bible records that in the beginning, nearly 6000 years ago, God created one common earthly father and one common mother. GOD SAID in Genesis 5:1-2:

1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;

2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

Concerning one common mother of all mankind, Berkeley biochemists, Wilson, Cann and Stoneking, have weighed in in favor of Eve. An original 1987 study involved mtDNA taken from 136 women of various racial profiles and from selected parts of the world. The analysis led back to a single ancestral mtDNA molecule from a woman living in Sub-Saharan Africa at a time they were reported to be about 200,000 years ago (which is still a long shot from the 6000 original years). An additional, more rigorous 1991 study appears to confirm and secure the theory. A bitter flap has emerged between old-line anthropologists who claim no common origin of man and an evolution of at least a million years, and their newer anthropological counterparts. In an article in Newsweek, dated January 11, 1998:

This time, however, the argument involves a new breed of anthropologists who work in air-conditioned American laboratories instead of desiccated African rift valleys. Trained in molecular biology, they looked at an international assortment of genes and picked up a trail of DNA that led them to a single woman from whom we are all descended.

The following was taken from an October 6, 1999 article published by Daily Insight, a publication of The American Association for the Advancement of Science, titled, "Southern African Eve:"

Twelve years ago scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, concluded from DNA studies that "Eve," an ancestor common to all modern humans, was an African. Now scientists in South Africa have tracked "Eve" to the Khosian peoples, who are the oldest indigenous group in southern Africa. The findings, presented at a recent human evolution meeting at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York, complement data from the male side: Y chromosome studies had previously pegged the Khosian among a handful of groups with Y chromosomes most closely resembling those of a common ancestor who lived in Africa 145,000 years ago (Science, 31 October 1997, p. 804). Mike Hammer of the University of Arizona, Tucson, who took part in the Y chromosome study, says the latest mtDNA work provides "important confirmation" of the team's work.

In an article published by the French Press Agency, Feb. 23, 1998, titled "Scientist Traces All DNA Roots to Africa," the following was reported from Vatican City:

The first man and woman lived up to 200,000 years ago in an earthly paradise somewhere in southern or northeastern Africa, according to the Jesuit Father Angelo Serra, professor of genetics at Rome's Catholic university.

Serra made the claim during a speech on the origins of man delivered to the general assembly of the pontifical academy on life, which began on Monday in the Vatican. The priest said his view was widely held as a result of research carried out in 1996 by academics in California and Arizona. Serra argued that this research supported the monogenist theory of only one "Adam" and one "Eve."

They're getting close, but still not reaching the prize.

Satan, as a serpent, approached Eve in the Garden of Eden and convinced her to reject the Word of God. Because of the serpent's deed, it was cursed to crawl upon its belly.

Genesis 3:14-15:

14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Just recently, new discoveries report that the snake had legs. I must mention, however, that although these discoveries are reported as new, this information has existed for decades.

Through biological examination, John Crompton, an evolutionist and snake authority who authored the book Snake Lore, discovered that at one time the snake that now crawls upon its belly once had legs. As a matter of fact, at this present time the snake has not completely gotten rid of its legs. Tiny vestigials remain of what were once hind legs and are found inside the bodies of many snakes.

Crompton's record is supported by Klaus Griehl's book, titled Snakes. Griehl points out that "primitive" snakes, such as boas and pythons, still show vestigial pelvic bones and anal spurs that represent the remnants of hind legs.

Man is ever learning but still never coming to the knowledge of the truth. God's Word declares in Ecclesiastes 1:2:

Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

Vanity by definition means: "emptiness; untruth; worthless; having no substance, value or importance; unreal; void."

Isaiah 40:17:

All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

In a 2002 article in Discover magazine, science weighs in:

According to Einstein's theory of relativity, the energy of a gravitational field is negative. The energy of matter, however, is positive. So the entire universe-creation scenario could unfold without breaking conservation-of-energy laws. The positive energy of all matter in the universe could be precisely counterbalanced by the negative energy of all the gravity in the universe.

This also is more than theory. Observations are consistent with the idea, and calculations totaling up all the matter and gravity in the observable universe indicate that the two values seem to precisely counterbalance. All matter plus all gravity equals zero. So the universe could come from nothing because it is, fundamentally, nothing.

Ever learning but always falling short.

GOD SAID in II Peter 3:10-12:

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

Now science has also come to the conclusion that the world shall come to an end.

There is a scientific law called the "Second Law of Thermodynamics," which is also the law of entropy, and it basically says all things go from order to disorder, from life to death. Great examples would include the earth's magnetic field, your house, your car, your body, the sun. Albert Einstein called this law the premier law of all science.

The following is a quote from K. Mendelssohn:

Speculations which have intrigued the philosophers more than the physicists concern the ultimate fate of the universe as a consequence of the second law of thermodynamics. There ought to exist a most probable, and therefore final, state of maximum entropy. Once this is attained, nothing more can happen and all processes, including those of life, must come to an end. This "entropy death" seems to be as inescapable as the dissolution in a Buddhist Nirvana and as equally far off. We have, at present, no evidence of any failure of the second law nor can we see how such failure could be accommodated in our physical world. However, most physicists are averse to extrapolations involving the beginning or end of our time scale.

Fritjof Capra, one of the world's leading "New Age" scientists, had this to offer:

According to the second law, some mechanical energy is always dissipated into heat that cannot be completely recovered. Thus the entire world machine is running down and will eventually grind to a halt.

Some have even speculated that the world's end will be the result of a devastating explosion and consuming fire.

Man is ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth that God created all things by His only begotten son Christ Jesus and that to escape the judgment of an angry God, salvation must be gained through Christ's cleansing blood.

GOD SAID, II Timothy 3:7:

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

GOD SAID, I Corinthians 1:18-21:

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

MAN SAID:  Man is the creator of God and man’s great intellect is our strength. Man is all there is.  According to man, we evolved over billions of years without any input of God. One of man's latest discoveries is that we are related to the banana.

Now you have THE RECORD.
