The Black Holes of the universe are hot items of interest in the scientific community. Astronomers are excited about “ripples in space” they have again discovered. They figure they originated from the collisions of massive celestial bodies that created even more massive black holes in the universe, causing the “ripples” in sound waves. While Einstein suggested they would be detected, the first discovery didn’t come until 2015. San Diego U-T, 6/2/17
Not qualified to comment on that, this writer will emphasize the Biblical truth from the scientific theories. And that is…any information gained by studying the universe will be of intense interest to a few, intellectual interest to a few more, but of practical value to hardly anyone.
However, if even the youngest child hears stories from a children’s Bible; if the most mature spiritual mind reads Bible texts, colossal lessons of practical value will be learned. Things about God as Creator through Jesus Christ. About Jesus loving people and helping them with everyday problems. About apostolic labors teaching doctrinal truths useful in everyday life.
The relative value of any teaching or belief is how close it is to God’s eternal truth in Christ; how it offers solutions to everyday-life problems; and how it positively impacts the greatest number of people for life here and hereafter. On every single issue God’s word scores perfect marks. It engenders wisdom as it shares information. It embodies practical answers to everyday problems and eternal questions. Why would we be so interested in what benefits a few and have so little time for what benefits so many every day and eternally?
Yours for a Christian life that seeks God’s wisdom in his word, God’s Son in his glory and discipleship deepening in FACTS that impact every single person ever to live.
