As we continue our journey into deeper things of God, one of the questions we need to answer is how everything was created?In many cultures the common belief is that the entire universe and all it contains was created out of nothing. There are several familiar cultures that hold to this belief:
Is it possible for something to be created out of nothing? One thing that everyone can agree on is that matter exists. That means it came into existence at some point. According to the Bible, God used words to create everything we see and other things that we do not see. When we study the Bible closely we find a few very interesting claims:
- “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” – John 1:1-3
- “But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” – 2 Peter 3:7
In Genesis 1 we read about various parts of the creation being spoken into existence. The verse in John refers to Christ as the Word, and as we will see, it is a very interesting choice of words (no pun intended). Finally, Peter verifies that it is the word that holds all of creation together. What is so special about the word? In order to understand what the Bible may be indicating, it is important to understand a little bit about vocalization. The vocal cords are a vibrating valve that chops up the airflow from the lungs into audible pulses that form the laryngeal sound source. By understanding how sound is made, we can better understand how far ahead of science the Bible truly is.
- “According to string theory, absolutely everything in the universe—all of the particles that make up matter and forces—is comprised of tiny vibrating fundamental strings. Moreover, every one of these strings is identical. The only difference between one string and another, whether it’s a heavy particle that is part of an atom or a mass less particle that carries light, is its resonant pattern, or how it vibrates. All objects, not just fundamental strings, have resonant patterns associated with them. Pluck the string of a violin and you hear mainly one tone. This is the string’s fundamental resonant pattern, or frequency. And the instrument’s resonance doesn’t stop there. The body of the violin has resonant frequencies, which work to amplify the sound created by the vibrating string. There’s resonance in objects that aren’t musical, too. Your desk has resonant frequencies, and so does a flagpole, and so does the Earth.” - www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/elegant/resonance.html
As we can see, the Bible’s claim that all of creation is held together by the word is corroborated by string theory. There are many that believe science and the Bible are in opposition to one another, but that does not seem to be the case. It seems that only by understanding both science and the Bible can we gain vast insights into the complexity of the creation. Through science we have learned that vocalization is formed by vibration, just as String Theory teaches us that all of creation seems to be held together by vibration. This discovery seems to indicate that the wording used in the Bible is by no means a coincidence.
