The Science of the Bible

The Laws of Thermodynamics were developed by multiple individuals over 400 years.  French physicist Sadi Carnot was the first to define the basic principles of thermodynamics in 1824. The first law states that energy can be neither created nor destroyed. In the very first chapter of the Bible, Moses understood this law, explaining this concept in the passage below. The first law of thermodynamics supports the law of conservation of energy. “The total energy of an isolated system remains constant; it is said to be conserved over time.” From a biblical point of view, this is accomplished by the power of the Holy Spirit.

In the beginning God (prepared, formed, fashioned, and) created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters, Genesis 1:1-2.

The second law of thermodynamics establishes the concept of entropy as a physical property of a thermodynamic system. Entropy predicts the direction of spontaneous processes and determines whether they are irreversible or impossible. In layman terms, the second law asserts that some thermodynamic processes are forbidden. One of the Psalmists refers to this scientific fact in the passage below. One observation derived from this second law is that the entropy of isolated systems left to spontaneous evolution cannot decrease. While human life is limited on earth, God’s power and Spirit endures.

At the beginning You existed and laid the foundations of the earth; the heavens are the work of Your hands. 26 They shall perish, but You shall remain and endure; yes, all of them shall wear out and become old like a garment. Like clothing You shall change them, and they shall be changed and pass away, Psalm 102:25-26.

In the last 50 years, naturalistic scholars and secular historians have teamed up to erase Science from the Bible. After a series of lawsuits banned public Bible reading and prayer from public education, the assault on biblical principles began. Fueled by offended atheists, this barrage continues today causing many Christians to hide their faith, afraid of retribution via the Cancel Culture. Despite what the liberal media constantly proclaims, God’s truth corresponds with scientific truth. During a conversation with a first century governor, Jesus reveals the source of truth, John 18:37. If you don’t believe me, read the books of C.S. Lewis, a former atheist who sought to disprove the Bible before finally surrendering to the Great I Am. This is the science of the Bible.
