OK, kids. Who can define the
thermodynamics first law?
Settle down. Settle down. And Susie, your hand is always up. Let someone else have a turn. Wow, everybody wants to answer. OK, Tommy, tell us. *ahem* “Yes, the thermodynamics first law says that all, or even part of, the energy in the universe is always constant.” Great answer, Tommy. You’ll get a gold star today. And what that means, class, is no mass or energy is being created or destroyed. It’s just changing forms.
And what else does that tell us about the thermodynamics first law?
“It means no energy…”
Heather, remember. We don’t just blurt out our answers. We raise our hands and take turns when called upon.
That’s OK. Why don’t you go ahead and finish your answer, Heather?
“OK. It means energy can’t make itself.”
Good answer, Heather. And if mass and energy can’t create themselves, then something or someone else did. Right? (whole class shouts, “Right!)
Ah, if only classrooms could look and sound like that. Well, small homeschooled classes can. But government schools can’t and don’t. Because scientific laws, like the first two laws of thermodynamics, show how mass and energy in the universe had to have been designed. And not by themselves. “Countless experiments have verified this.” And that implies a designer. But too many so-called “scientists” and “teachers” refuse to go where that leads.
The first two laws of thermodynamics point to God.
Yeah, them’s the facts, Jack. If not even the inorganic parts of the universe couldn’t create themselves, could even more complex organisms create themselves? Like you and me, for example. Not very likely, right?
I’m not afraid to admit there’s a God. Because I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, He exists. And even better than that, I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, He loves me. Even though I’ve done nothing worthy of that love except show enough humility to believe and trust in Him.
Ironic how that simple act of humility, belief, and trust is too difficult for the majority of people on the planet.
Ironic. And sad.
You Just Don’t Get It
You wanna live the way you want to live.
And you wanna be your own king.
You think you’re wise enough to rule your world
And handle everything.
But how much happiness is in your life?
How many friends do you know
Who would give up their lives to give you yours?
Do you think any would show?
Well you idolize with your idle eyes.
Your body wants what it wants, and you let it.
You identify what you deify.
You’ll see the kingdom, but you just don’t get it.
You can’t submit to any higher will.
You’d rather live in the dark.
Well, you can have exactly what you say.
Look where you’re making your mark.
Don’t you think you should think about it?
Do you know all there is to know?
There’s a choice; you can’t live without it.
You can be sure where you’re gonna go…
