God's Belief About Physics

Recently, I received an email from someone who is exploring faith in Christ.  This person asked, "Pastor Mike, what is God's belief about physics?"  This was my answer to that question:

Hello and thank you for the question!

God’s belief about physics, now that’s an interesting question!  Since God created everything there is and he sustains everything there is, then God is ultimately the answer to all the questions that physicists ask.  I found a good website about physics and here’s what they said:

The dictionary definition of physics is “the study of matter, energy, and the interaction between them”, but what that really means is that physics is about asking fundamental questions and trying to answer them by observing and experimenting.

Physicists ask really big questions like:
  • How did the universe begin?
  • How will the universe change in the future?
  • How does the Sun keep on shining?
  • What are the basic building blocks of matter?
So, as you can see, those “really big questions” that physicists ask will eventually all end with the same answer, God.
 
Here’s a verse from the Bible to back my statement up: 
 
Colossians 1:17 He (Jesus) is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
 
There are actually many verses in the Bible that talk about God creating everything there is and that he sustains it as well.  Click
here for a good website with which to start that study. 
 
Therefore, in answer to your question, “What is God’s belief about physics?”  My answer is, “God is all about physics, literally.”
 
Keep the questions coming!  I’m glad you’re asking questions.  You know, God has something to say about you asking questions.  Look at Matthew 7:7-8

“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for.  Keep on seeking, and you will find.  Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks, receives.  Everyone who seeks, finds.  And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.  –Matthew 7:7-8
 
Now, I want you to be careful to understand what those Bible verses just said.  Notice verse 7 said, “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for.”  That doesn’t mean that if you ask for something that is bad for you, God will give it to you.  That verse was written to people who were completely devoted and committed to Jesus and his mission in the world.  So, what they “asked for” was always what God wanted in this world and he gave it to them.  When and if they asked for something “outside of God’s will” then he would help them to see that it was outside His will and he would guide them to the right question instead.  So, keep asking questions and keep reading your Bible.  In the Bible is where you’ll discover God’s will and that’s what will guide you to the right questions to ask.
 
I’m praying for you.
