Pearcey Report

Tuesday, November 18, 2008


Seems to me, the Bible is quite clear: God created Man and sustains him (and this creation) by the word of His Mouth.

Nowhere, in 1500 pages of fine print, sans pictures, can one get the impression God created and stands aloof from it, as the Diest would suggest.

Far too many passages suggest His intimate involvement, much to our dismay given our first parent’s succumbing, in what seems to be minute detail.

Our immediate response is, “…does that make me an automaton…”?

No, it makes you (and me) creatures. Creatures who, as the Apostle Paul declared on Mars Hill about 2 millennia back, “…live, and move, and have our being in Him…”. And, perish the thought, he was quoting one who did not adhere to Christian thinking?

A creature.

Does that bother you, humble you, make you feel less than a god?


In contradistinction to sticks, stones, water, and the Animal kingdom, you have been blessed by this Creator with Rationality! You are not instinctually driven, but seem to have choice. You are, Imagio Dei.

In almost every instance, absent the Gun of the “…powers that be…”, you act freely. In those actions, you feel as if you are “…in charge of your destiny…”!

Then, voila, it comes crashing down.



The answer is, biblically, rational…”…He works all things after the counsel of His will…” .

Creatures are not, Ultimately, in charge. He is.

It is at this crucial juncture your temporal destiny lies.

Will you respond as a creature….or as a rebel…?

Therein lies peace of mind, without the assistance of pharmaceuticals.

Psalm 119:165
