A Very Convenient and Wonderful Truth

“1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”
John 1:1-4

“3By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.”
Hebrews 11:3

“1God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. 3And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power.”
Hebrews 1:1-3a

“15And He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”
Colossians 1:15-17

Upholds all things by the word of His power. In Him all things hold together.
Former Vice President Al Gore (and the rest of us) need not worry about global warming/cooling or meteors striking the Earth or aliens attacking in cool spaceships or even man blowing himself up in a nuclear holocaust.
“Al, buddy. Chill. Don’t let global warming get you hot under the collar. Jesus, whether you believe in Him or not, has all of Creation under control, including what happens on this little planet. Relax.
Where’s your faith, man? What? In mankind being able to solve any problems that he creates? Wow.
And they call us Christians fanatics. Tell you what, take Tipper out for a nice meal, (personal note-all kidding aside, I’ve always liked Tipper. I’ve never seen her being less than gracious, and I think she’s a fine lady. Okay, back to the) a nice meal, and maybe stop by a church next Sunday morning, and hear a sermon about the Sovereignty of God.”
