Mary’s Song

46Mary responded,

“Oh, how my soul praises the


47   How my spirit rejoices in

                God my Savior!

48   For he took notice of his lowly

                servant girl,

        and from now on all

                generations will call me


49   For the Mighty One is holy,

          and he has done great things

                for me.

50   He shows mercy from

                generation to generation

        to all who fear him.

51   His mighty arm has done

                tremendous things!

         He has scattered the proud

                and haughty ones.

52   He has brought down princes

                from their thrones

         and exalted the humble.

53   He has filled the hungry with

                good things

         and sent the rich away with

                empty hands.

54   He has helped his servant Israel

         and remembered to be


55   For he made his promise to

                our ancestors,

         to Abraham and his children


   56Mary stayed with Elizabeth

about three months and then

went back to her own home.

~ Luke 1: 46-56 NLT


Importantstuff | The Anthropic Principle


According to The Anthropic Principle, the universe appears to be designed for mankind.  It is designed and fine-tuned so that if anything changes, it all falls apart.

WOW!  The anthropic principle and the structure of the physical world  was an amazing Harvard paper published in 1979 that sparked continuing debate on whether The Anthropic Principle proves God’s existence.

There are four cosmic forces (at least) at work in our universe.

  1. Gravity
  2. Electromagnetic
  3. Strong Nuclear Force
  4. Weak Nuclear Force

I am not pretending that I understand this scientific stuff, but you can research how The Anthropic Principle collides with the Copernican Principle and Plank’s Constant at the link Basically, it can be argued that any slight change in one of these forces and our universe would disintegrate.  That means that at the atomic and sub-atomic levels life as we know it is impossible – if minute tolerances are not maintained.

Maintained how?  Is this all random?  Praise God Almighty, IT’S NOT!  I don’t know about you, but it’s a great comfort to believe “He’s got the whole world in His hands”.

So there it is; The Anthropic Principle.  If you are still reading this, please know that God not only created the universe, but He holds it together for US – very importantstuff; another big reason to trust Almighty God for our very existence.

1Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, 4“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me if you have understanding…

31Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, or loose the belt of Orion? 32Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs? 33Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?”  ~ Job 38:1, 4, 6, 31-33 NKJV


Thank You, LORD! I trust Your power to not only create our universe but to also hold it together for our benefit and Your Glory.

Hey!  Your thoughts are welcome in the comments.

Vain Philosophies | A Reprobate Mind

” We’re at a point where our theology is now being based on our philosophy instead of being based upon the scripture(s).”   ~ John Paul Jackson

Read Romans 1: 18-32

This video pretty much nails it for what I see happening in America today.  As individuals and as a nation, we need to listen to God’s warning about holding truth in unrighteousness.  To me that means calling good bad and bad good even when you know the difference.  It also means those who accept such lawlessness are just as guilty in God’s sight as those who have turned away from God.

Being influenced by vain philosophies instead of God’s Word therefore leads to what God Himself calls a reprobate mind in verse 28 of this passage of scripture.  We currently see a hate culture effect in our country instead of a love-thy-neighbor culture which Jesus commanded us to embrace.

There is hope in repentance, however.  As we wind up the year 2019, let’s pray for each other to come out of darkness with all of its false teachings.


Heavenly Father, we repent of our back-slidden ways and vain philosophies of man that have absolutely no validity by Your written Word.  LORD do not let us continue on our path of destructive hate and lawlessness that divides and dooms us to a reprobate mind.  We give You glory and thank you for Your Holy Spirit that guides, comforts, and corrects.  We believe and receive your Truth, the Everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ into our hearts and minds.  Amen!
