“The more time, and devotion one spends in the worship of false gods, the less likely one is to spend in the worship of the True One. As a blind man has no idea of colors, so we have no idea of the manner by which the all wise God perceives and understands all things,” Sir Isaac Newton.
All that may be true from a scientific perspective but it’s not true from a experiential experience. Science in itself is a false god. Because some are so entrenched by scientific revelations that science becomes god.
Among his intellectual accomplishments, he was also a theologian. For most science and a true God experience are not reconcilable. So Newton used the color idiom to explain the rational for the separation between science and God.
Perhaps, Isaac, had settled his own dilemma concerning science and God. For himself, and others through the following scriptures.
For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven. And they do not return to Me. But they water the earth preparing it for life sustaining substance. All designed for the sower’s use. (cp. Isaiah 55:8-10).
Then the sower becomes the qualifier between science and the one and only true God as shown from the following scriptures. “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth. It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please. And it shall prosper in the thing which I sent it. cp. Isaiah 55:11).
Life in all manifested forms is miraculous. Especially, the life transformed by the word of God. It can’t be manufactured, although that is what religion does. It’s Newton’s religious falsehoods of worship. It can only be experienced through the Sower’s planting of the seed. The promise is eternal. The seed will not fail, but will create life eternal sustainability.
Life is complex, and can be extremely unsettling. But for those, who can identify with this scripture the unsettling complexities of life are no more. “Therefore, we do not lose heart. Even though the outward person is dying, yet the inward person is being renewed day by day.” (cp. 2 Corinthians 4:16).
