Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy? Job 38:4-7

Job could not answer.
Last time I revealed the origin of the Big Bang theory from Georges Lemaître’s 1927 proposal of tracing an expanding universe back to a single point or an explosion that caused the expansion.
What amazes me is the collection and theorizing of this information is done through the creations of the created.
People try to understand God with the inventions of our own hands.
This is why it’s a theory and not called the Big Bang Fact.
I’m no expert on the subject. I do find it fascinating and try to wrap my mind around much of it.
But I am always mindful of the words of God in Isaiah – For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. Isa 55:8-9
Many scientists would laugh at my simple belief. But I would rather trust faith in God Who said, “I created this!” than in men who say it may have happened this way or that way.
I’ll repeat something from last time – no scientist has done anything for my eternal salvation but God has done everything!
