Truth Exchange

Romans 1:19-25 teaches God has revealed himself to us through his creation. By examining our world around us we can learn the truth about God, his nature, his power and how the world is designed to work. Interesting, it says as humans we suppressed that obvious reality and exchanged the truth for a lie and ultimately end up thinking we are so wise but actually become quite foolish!

I recently got a new computer for work. We have a high degree of security which can make everything more complicated. I was connecting a wireless printer but it wouldn’t work. It has to be wired with a cable because it is more secure! I started thinking about how our technology has to be designed to communicate with other devices. Whenever there is a purpose, thinking and design are essential. Transmitting information is an absolute necessity between devices.

I read a book a friend wrote that started me thinking about the human eye and human hearing in the light of modern technology. It is overwhelming complex to even imagine how both these processes work in detail. How light and sound are received, transmitted, converted to nerve impulses and then processed by our brain to allow us to interpret sights and sounds. It caused me to ponder the Scriptures referenced above. There is absolutely no possibility, no matter how long the time period, these senses could have happened without no design, just by random selection. A person would have to become a fool to believe that.

I began to think about other exchanges the human family has made once we ignore the Divine Architect of life and think we know better. We look at the wonder of the universe and say it just happened by random selection. We come up with things like there is some better way to build a society than the traditional family. We say, our offspring are not human. We say there are more than two genders rather than the two obvious genders and a few rare deviations. We twist and turn everything and ultimately to our own destruction.

I would encourage you to think about things that are readily embraced by our society that fit into this category. We are making tradeoffs that are not very wise.

Ponder these things,


About Scott Ranck

Enjoying life with my wife Gayle and our Yorkie, Zoe boy. I've come to believe life begins when through brokenness I can embrace it fully and openly. I've learned the human drama is an adventure and all of us are made of the same stuff. The Lord is the only being who knows me fully and he has an individual educational plan of life long learning for me and I'm enrolled. This blog is all about what I'm learning.
