Re:Verse reading–Genesis 10 (day three)

“From these the nations spread out over the earth after the flood.”  Why is there something rather than nothing?  This question has intrigued and vexed men for centuries.  It has intrigued because of the mystery surrounding the origins of the universe.  It has vexed because a materialistic worldview cannot allow a why question.  The Bible deals with both the intrigue and the vexed-ness.  It reveals the mystery of origins: “In the beginning God created.”  And it anticipates the dead end of materialism: “You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.”  God’s word was there as the nations populated the earth.  It still speaks as the nations rage.  Explanations come and go, but revelation remains.  Bring your questions to the Bible.

One thought on “Authority”

  1. Great post! Only God addresses “why” since he is the only one with the ability and knowledge to answer any “why” question.
