The Heavens Declare

Psalm 14:1

The fool said in his heart:

    “There is no God.”

They are corrupt; their deeds are vile;

    there is no one who does good.

Creationist physicist Tony Rothman wrote an article for Discovery Magazine discussing the problem secular scientists faced with the complexity of the universe and the remarkable scientific laws and fine tuning of the cosmos. “When confronted with the order and beauty of the universe and the strange coincidences of nature,” he wrote, “it’s very tempting to take the leap of faith from science into religion. I am sure many physicists want to. I only wish they would move it.”

Acknowledging the creative power of God isn’t really a leap of faith; it’s obvious for those who are honest and objective.

The Universe is filled with evidence of God’s greatness. In awesome wonder we can consider the world He has made. When we see His stars and hear His rolling thunder, we can praise Him. We can agree with the psalmist:

Psalm 14

For the music director, of David.

The fool said in his heart:

    “There is no God.”

They are corrupt; their deeds are vile;

    there is no one who does good.

Adonai looked down from heaven on the children of men,

to see if there are any who understand,

    who seek after God.

They all turned aside, became corrupt.

There is no one who does good

—not even one.

 “Will evildoers never understand—

those who consume My people as they eat bread—

and never call on Adonai?”

There they are, in great dread.

For God is with the righteous generation.

You would frustrate the plan of the lowly.

Surely Adonai is his refuge!

O may He give Israel’s salvation out of Zion!

When Adonai restores His captive people,

Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad!
