Science Falsely So Called
1st Timothy 6:20 — "O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called."
The world’s science will attempt to teach you that they are ahead of God. The Bible is so far ahead of man and science. This is one of the reasons it is forbidden in schools. For the Bible is the final authority. The Bible is more than a book of do’s and don’ts. It is book that was written by God and is far ahead of man. The Bible is a science book. Accurate in every way. The Bible is a history book, accurate in every way. This lesson will show you how far ahead the Bible is to science and why Paul stated: “science falsely so called.”
This lesson will also attempt to arm you will information when someone tells you that that Bible was written by men. Not inspired of God. You will be able to take this information and use it to show that the Bible is far ahead of science (man).
God created the heaven and the earth: This denies pantheism that God is one with the universe. This denies the teaching of evolution and theistic-evolution.
This verse has all five elements of science:
God’s word has always been true.
The Bible states that the atheist is a fool! For only a fool would look out at the creation and state that it just happened. Only a fool would state that man just happened to exist. To look at the complexity that exist in man and think that it was an explosion that caused us to take place, only a fool would deny the existence of God! Only a fool would believe that man is ahead of God in any aspect of life. The Bible is a science book.
Even in the very beginning of the Bible we see that the Bible is ahead of science. For science and the schools teach a lie from hell called evolution. The big bang theory is taught, theist evolution is taught in many Christian schools. This is another lie of the devil. Theistic evolution is this; God created and then evolution took over. This is trying to play both sides of the fence. Either you believe God and take Him at His word or you believe the devil!
Death, burial, and resurrection declared by the heavens
Take a look around and see the heavens. When the sun sets in the west it dies blood red. It is then buried and it rises in the east. This is a picture of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the gospel. Note also that the heavens give a picture of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. For the Sun rises in the east just as Christ will return from the east. Zech 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east,... Mal 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
It is the Son that is returning. The Sun of righteousness.
Heathen are without excuseThus, we see that the heavens declare the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Second Coming. This is why Paul stated the heathen are without excuse in Romans 1:20 — "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse."
Sun, Moon, Earth
The moon is a picture of the Christian, and the sun is a picture of the Son. For the moon does not reflects it’s own light but the light of the sun. The Christian has no light of their own but reflects the light of the Son. The moon is between the sun and the earth and at times there is an eclipse and it appears as if you cannot see the sun. However, it is there. The Christian is between the Son and the world but at times the world gets in our way and we cannot see the Son. But He is always there for us.
Job 25:5 — "Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight."
When did science "discover" that the moon did not shine? Over 2300 years after Job was written. For years it was taught the moon shined. However, God stated the moon does not shine.
Sun Rays and the Trinity
The sun rays are made up of three parts.
Romans 1:20 — "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse."
Notice how the Godhead is impressed upon the universe:
This is only a short list of the many "three’s" in the universe.
Bible ahead of Atlas!
Job wrote this 3500 years ago.
Science finally caught up in the 1500’s, Magellan sailed around the world. I remember a song I sang as a child in school, “Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492”. Prior to Magellan and Columbus folks believed that you could fall off the edge of the earth. If they would have read their Bibles they would have realized that the earth was flat and was held up by nothing. (We must remember one thing, just as there is a group today that is attempting to keep you from God’s word, there was a group then that did not want the common people to have the word of God.)
It took science a few thousand years to catch up to the Bible. Yet folks will state the Bible is not a science book.
Bible ahead of NASA!
In 1982 NASA scientist “discovered” that all the ingredients needed to form a human being can be found in clay. It took science over three thousand years to catch up. It does not take a rocket scientist to discover what God told us over three thousand years ago. In fact, the education of many will get in their way. I heard this story once and... “Once I was a tadpole when I began to begin, next I was a frog with my tail tucked in. Then I was a monkey in a banyan tree, and now I am a doctor with a Ph.D. Tadpole, frog, and monkey man, all glory to nothing for the planless plan.” Who would get the glory if there was no plan?
BacteriologyA few hundred years ago man began to quarantine folks when they would have a serious disease. When I was growing up if you had chicken pox, measles, mumps, pink eye and many others you were not permitted out of the house until you were better.
The Bible taught this over 3500 years ago.
God commanded to wash the infected skin in running water. God told the children of Israel to use running water. Prior to the discovery of “bacteria” the doctors would use a basin of water to wash their hands. This would transmit the disease from one patient to another.
Science was over 3,000 years behind.
The Bible has the answer for those that plant and farm. Certain crops you do not plant next to another for they will take on the characteristics of one or the other.
If you plant citron or squash too near your watermelon then you watermelon will taste like citron. If you plant your field corn near your sweet corn then your sweet corn will no longer be sweet corn. Only recently have men truly understood this. (I verified this with different farmers for the accuracy of this, and received a very hearty, yes!)
The Bible taught this years ago.
The Israelite were told not to mix material together that was made up of two types. They could not have a garment that was made of half cotton and half wool. The reason would be the clothes would pull apart when the shrunk.
There are many reasons why the land was to be given a rest. After talking to farmers and reflecting back when I did some garden work, a few things are noted. First, farmers rotate crops so as not to deplete the soil of minerals. Second, the land is given a rest to rid it of “pest”. For example, if your crops are being infested by an insect that would destroy your corn crop and you did not plant corn for one year. What do you think would happen to the corn “pest”? It would die off for lack of food. Thus, there would be no need to use insecticides. For God commanded the best insecticide around. To give the land a rest. I was also told that it takes approximately six years to deplete the soil of it’s minerals. If that is truly accurate then it explains why God commanded the land to have a rest in the seventh year.
Did you know that according to Dr. Schutt there are over $8 per acre in snow of nitrates, and ammonium? Did you ever wonder why the grass is “greener” on the east coast rather than the west. It has nothing to do with the rain. It is the snow. The snow gives the minerals the plants need to grow. Much greater than the rain. Again, after talking to folks that farm and landscape, they tell me they want it to snow. I asked why? Because snow “fills” the water table unlike the rain. For snow slowly is absorbed into the land and fills the water table for the wells. However, if it were to rain the same amount as it snows, the rain runs off the land into the streams and rivers. Never getting to the water tables like snow.
Evaporation and rainfall
In 1630 Galileo discovered what is known as the water cycle. That the water goes from the streams to the rivers to the oceans then evaporates back up to the skies for the next rain fall. Solomon taught this very thing over 2500 years ahead of science in Ecclesiastes 1:7
The use of anesthesia for surgery was suggested by Humphry Davy, a British Chemist. However, it was not put into use until Horace Wells in 1844 tried it on himself. He was an American dentist and used it on himself when having a tooth pulled. In 1842 Dr. Crawford Long, a Georgia doctor used ether on a patient until they were unconscious. In 1845, Dr. Long used ether when delivering a child. In 1849 he began to publish his results. However, prior to his publishing his results a dentist, W. T. G. Morton started to use anesthesia in tooth extractions. It was not until the 1930’s that medical schools began to have formal training in it’s use.
Do you know that it took man nearly 6000 years to catch up with God? You say how? Do you remember when God put Adam asleep prior to God removing a rib from Adam to make Eve?
Prior to surgery God knew it best to put Adam asleep and then do the surgery that was needed to create Eve. Why did it take man nearly 6000 years to figure this out? Man is not as smart as he thinks he is. Science can never out think God.
There is an old story of how a few scientist got together after they were successful in cloning a man. They said. “WE have been able to clone man. We have made test tube babies. Why do we need God around any more? Yea, right… lets call Him here and discuss that we don’t need him anymore.” They called God and said; “God, we have been successful in cloning man. WE have been successful in creating a baby in a test tube. We won’t need you around anymore.” God said; “Ok, let’s have a contest who can make man faster.” The scientist said: “Great!” Then they went over to get some dirt to make man in a test tube and God said: “No wait! You go make your own dirt!”
Now I know that this story did not happen but it is so true. Man cannot create as God has been able to do. He created out of nothing and he created something from something. He spoke the world into existence then He made Adam from the dust of the ground. Science continues to try to copy what God has done but cannot.
· God made a man without a woman (ADAM)
· God made a woman without a woman but with a man (EVE from the rib of ADAM).
· God made a man without a man (Christ born of the virgin Mary).
· God makes both men and women out of men and women.
Now man will spend the rest of time trying to match all four of the above! However, he never will be able to make something from nothing as God did!
Laughter and medicine
Solomon wrote this over 3000 years ago. Recently it has been reported by the Mayo clinic that there are “killer cells” that are produced when a person laughs. They did a study on laughter and determined that these “killer cells” increase during laughter and fight off diseases. They are reported to have spent 1 Million dollars to have come to this conclusion. With a dime store Bible they could have come to the same conclusion and saved $999,995.50.
Life is in the Blood
It was not until the 1900’s when science caught up to the Bible. A man named Dr. Lister discovered that the blood provides the bodies of the immune system. In times past a person would go to the Barber Shop not only for a hair cut but for “bleeding”. The red and white pole outside the barber shop represented the blood and bandage that the “first” surgeons would use. When a person that was sick they would go to the barber and get a bleeding by leeches. They would place leeches on your body to remove the blood. This they thought would heal a sick person. Not only would it not heal the person but at times would kill them. For we know that the “life of the flesh is in the blood.” George Washington was nearly bled to death using this thought process. Four times his blood was drained and the last time nearly a quart of blood was removed.
Did you ever notice all the blood diseases and disorders? Heart problems, problems with the veins, problems with various parts of the body that the blood takes nutrients to? The blood is the only part of the body that travels the entire body. It is the only part of the body that not only takes nutrients to the parts of the body but it also takes the garbage out of the body and dumps it into the body parts where the “waste” is to be deposited. The Blood is no doubt the most important part of the body.
The blood is so important. Did you ever notice if you get a nose bleed or a cut you cannot get the blood stain out of the clothes.
Yet the blood is used by God to cleanse you.
The only way for the children of Israel to escape the “tenth” plague was to ensure they had the blood applied. The only way for a person to escape Hell is to ensure they have the Blood of Jesus Christ applied to them. How is this done? By accepting Christ as Saviour.
We read how the Bible is far ahead of man when it comes to science and how in every point it has been correct. The Bible says we all deserve hell. Then you better believe it to be correct then when it comes to your salvation? You must remember this; if you could work your way to heaven by good works, then why did Christ die?
The Bible says that we are all sinners and all we deserve is Hell. Have you ever told a lie?
The Bible says that there is a penalty for our sin and that penalty is death and hell.
"For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment." — 2nd Peter 2:4
Jesus paid the penalty for our sin(s) by dying on the cross.
1. Everyone is a sinner!
2. There is a penalty for our sin!
3. Christ paid the penalty!
4. Now what are you going to do about it?
5. Will you admit that you are a sinner and that you cannot get to Heaven by your own works?
6. Receive Christ as your Saviour.
7. Be like the sinner in Luke 18:13 and pray: “God be merciful to me a sinner.”
Pray this prayer: (the prayer does not save you; but your trusting in Christ will save you.)
God, I know that I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when He died on the cross. I believe His shed blood, death, burial and resurrection were for me. I now receive Him as my Saviour. In Christ name I pray. Amen.
