Now, there is an odd title for a post from a Christian. I am a Christian that believes the Bible to be the inerrant Word of God and therefore perfect. If the Bible says something then it is true and if it doesn’t seem true then it is only because it is viewed from the wrong angle. In other words the error is in the man that reads it and not in the Bible.
Einstein’s famous formula proves (Heb 11:3 NIV) “By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.” Those that are in the world, that do not even believe that there is a God, do not understand how Einstein’s formula proves God’s Word, but you are not of this world and you can understand.
You do not have to understand the entire math of Einstein’s formula in order to understand what it means. Take a deep breath and look for the basic meaning of the formula.
OK, let me show you the basic underlying principal of the formula. Basically the formula states that everything is made of energy! It states how much energy a certain amount of mass is made of and doing so states that everything is made of energy. There is nothing on one side of the equation but energy and on the other side is only mass. Turn the equation over in your mind and you will see that it says a certain amount of mass equals a certain amount of energy. It does not say that mass plus something else equals energy.
So, if you do not yet understand how Einstein’s formula proves Hebrews 11:3 then answer me this. Can one see energy? I would say no. Though one can see the effects of energy, energy itself can not be seen. ”What is seen was not made out of what was visible.”
I believe that there is always at least two ways to view anything. So let me show you another way to view Hebrews 11:3.
“What ‘is’ seen was not made out of what was visible”. So if what is seen is energy, then one can see energy. However, one can only see the energy when it is locked up into the form of mass. That is to say that a brick is made of energy and is visible, but if it is subjected to an atomic blast it is changed to the form of only energy and no longer a brick. It can no longer be seen, because it is no longer a brick.
It seems to me that only God can take energy and turn it into mass. Mass is being turned into energy throughout the universe and man can also turn mass into energy, but man cannot turn the energy, that once was a brick, back into the brick that it once was.
If you are an unbeliever and you think that I am wrong, then don’t waste your time telling me that I am wrong. Go, make a brick and prove that I am wrong.
