Father – His Proof
Let us talk about God the Father as a “Person” and where is HIS proof… if anywhere.First, some have a weird idea of “who” the FATHER is. Here are some “impressions” of who God the Father is… by some… for your enjoyment.
The issue of God (or God the Father) is a question of Faith. You cannot see the Father. In a certain way, we see the Father in Jesus… but in a material sense, we do not see the Father. (Again, the Father is a Spirit without form so “It” cannot be seen)… just like the “Big Bang”.
Since God the Father is a Spirit, he has neither a beard or hair for that matter or lack of. These latter elements belong to Physics. God (God the Father as is the Godhead) is outside Physics.
Yet, we claim our faith to be logical.
When we study the history of Christianity, when we read the Bible, when we allow the Holy Spirit to teach us, we just know that the Son of God had a Father… thus by faith, we know that there is a God Father. We can feel the love of the Father in the love we received in and from Christ. Often, this love is also felt through others around us… but again, that is all very subjective.
There is no such thing as Proof of the Father. We believe it! Period.
Of course, faith is not based on idiotic elements. It is the only “logical” FAITH SYSTEM in the known Creation.
We believe because the Faith System that Christ has brought on this earth simply works. It does. There is a logic in the Christian Faith.
From anthropology, you learn that most beings believe in a God. Why would most humans believe, instinctively in such a being if such a Being did not exist? From an evolutionary (Darwinist) point of view, we would be incapable of believing in anything outside of our “physical” world. How then do we have the “thought of Eternity”? Darwinism is therefore illogical. Yet, we cannot prove that the Father exists. But that is irrelevant, in the end.
Our Faith System is based on an attraction of a Person. Christ our Lord. It is a LOVE STORY. And one cannot measure or bring in a Scientific Laboratory “LOVE”. Try to figure, from a Physics point of view, the “weight“, the “height” or the “breath” of love. We can’t. No one has and no one will ever be able to “measure” abstract notions that are outside our norms of things “within” our world of Physics.
Therefore, there must be more than “Physics”.
We may have no proof of our Creator… yet…
From Astronomy, try to calculate the chances for a world to be at the exact angle the earth is in its axis, giving us Seasons – thus life (23.5 degrees)… but it is not “exactly 23.5 with its right dimensions (size). From my Astronomy class (Ohio University), the true axis of the earth is 23.4something… and thus, we need to delete one second every 18 months or so (this happened yesterday, (all over the world) as I write this article – June 30th 2015). Since our calendars are wrong, if we did not “skip” a second every 18 months, we would eventually (not in our lifetime) end up with snow in August.
Add this with a moon, the exact size and at the exact fractional distance and position it holds related to earth, causing a gravity that affects the oceans and far more (the “period of the woman” is identical, within minutes), placed in a system where the needed star (sun) has just the right proportions, distance and age within a gravitational element that allows other such planets as the massive Jupiter to exist. We can continue with the importance of Saturn and the distant Ice Giants (Uranus and Neptune) and then we can get closer to the inner planets… but all are influenced by all and thus, we have “intelligent” life... “Made into HIS image“. The possibilities of this are astronomical and factually impossible.
Some of you may not be Astronomers, but we know that such complicated calculations just simply do not happen by accident. Quantum Physics (my current studies) are even more amazing. The Chemical balance for life gets down to fundamental needs (without it, there is no life). Example:
Molybdenum (0.000013%) is essential to virtually all life forms. In humans, it is important for transforming sulfur into a usable form. In nitrogen-fixing bacteria, it is important for transforming nitrogen into a usable form.Cobalt (0.0000021%) is contained in vitamin B12, which is important in protein formation and DNA regulation. It would be like insisting that the wind created, with a lot of time, on Mount Rushmore the faces of Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and Roosevelt. Impossible! Just not logical.
Yet, we cannot prove that the Father (Creator of humans) exist. (Or can we)?
We do ardently believe in the Father. Firstly because Scripture tells us, mainly because the Son has “shown” us the Father and conclusively because the Spirit compels us, teaches us, convinces us of such truth.
In a nutshell, this is what Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me.” John 14:6.
And by the way, since “No one has seen God at any time; the only-begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him”. John 1:18.
This would make the “Jehovah” of the Old Testament, the “Jesus” of the New.
Be well and believe.
