Day 9: Does the Maker of World Know Everything? Free

Day 36: Quantum Physics and Parallel Universes Free
One of the most difficult things to understand is theodicy. How can we have free wills yet live lives foreknown or foreordained by our Creator? The Maker of the universe must know the potentials of what he has made and therefore must know in detail what w
Day 37: Do Genesis and Science agree about Time? Free

Day 47: Does the Mind Understand or Manipulate? Free

Day 38: Living in the Real Universe
Day 38: Living Daily in Reality: Living in the Real Universe ============================================================
Living daily in reality means living in the real universe – and today’s quantum physicists are saying that this universe is larger and more complex than we ever thought. Certainly as future space-travelers we are learning that time goes more slowly the farther out in space we go. And it is occurring to us that you should be able then to go out so far in space that time stops! As we think about the one that made the whole universe it seems obvious that he or she must be able to see all of history in a moment – indeed, everything must be a present moment to the creator of it all.
This is the infinite or eternal view that Christ presented in his life on earth in the first century: he declared to Jews who questioned him, “‘If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing: it is my father who glorifies me, of whom you say that he is your God. But you have not known him; I know him. If I said, I do not know him, I should be a liar like you; but I do know him and I keep his word. Your father Abraham rejoiced that he was to see my day; he saw it and was glad.’ The Jews then said to him, ‘You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?’ Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.’” Living daily in reality means living in this twenty-first century world where we are seeing that time and space have never been as fixed and absolute as we thought. Not only is space curved according to Einstein, but time depends on where you are in space – both are relative to our positions.
This makes it easier for us to understand reality through the mind of our Maker who said, “I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done.” He is the one to whom David says, “Even before a word in on my tongue, O Lord, you know it altogether.” We see that, of course, God must know everything that will happen in the universe he has made. What we have been saying is that he not only knows what our lives will be like and gives us freedom to do what we want, but he simultaneously creates another way which we can either activate here on earth or reject – in which case he creates another way, which – again – we can activate or reject – until our time on earth is over! As the quantum physicists are suspecting, there is more than one reality at work. And as we are beginning to see – there is a loving, intelligent person who “is at work in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure,” while at the same time we are seeing around us daily the consequences of life apart from our Maker.
Living daily in reality means allowing, acquiescing, co-operating with the Maker of the universe, your loving Father, as he works to do through you the things he wants done in this planet. At the same time, he is endeavoring to draw your mind closer to his so that you will understand him better as you see the works that he is able to do daily in this world even as it draws to an end. So our daily life is filled with personal
hope and the daily excitement of what God is going to do through us each day, yet it is clear-eyed about the unreality around us of a world that cannot make it apart from its Maker. Let’s begin now to apply this together to our daily lives, watching always for the directions that you personally will receive for the very individual journey that is yours alone.
