Precise Universe

Truly we live in a precise universe. God does not create junk, but the cosmos is intricate like clock work, and created at a high order of precision. 

If the unit charge of the electron was altered just slightly, life could never occur. 

OK imagine a creation that is imprecise. For example, one day it is 120 degrees Fahrenheit and the next day it is below zero. There are no seasons. How can plants grow?

Notice that our world has established cycles such as spring or summer. For human life to exist, those are necessary. Yet, science claims we are the result of random errors.

If Planet Earth were slightly closer to our sun, our oceans would boil away. However, if it were farther away than we are, our oceans would freeze into a solid block of ice. Certainly, this thin ring around the sun that allows life to occur is very narrow.

Here is strong evidence for precision:

  • The electromagnetic coupling constant binds electrons to protons in atoms. If it was smaller, fewer electrons could be held. If it was larger, electrons would be held too tightly to bond with other atoms.
  • Ratio of electron to proton mass (1:1836). Again, if this was larger or smaller, molecules could not form.
  • Carbon and oxygen nuclei have finely tuned energy levels.
  • Electromagnetic and gravitational forces are finely tuned, so the right kind of star can be stable.
  • Our sun is the right color. If it was redder or bluer, photosynthetic response would be weaker.

Fact is, even tiny errors would destroy our cosmos. God has built a massive universe that relies on extreme accuracy.

According to the Wall Street Journal,

"If the ratio between the nuclear strong force and the electromagnetic force had been off by the tiniest fraction of the tiniest fraction—by even one part in 100,000,000,000,000,000—then no stars could have ever formed at all."

Certainly, this does not leave a lot of room for error.

Every Idle Word

God sees everything we do and hears every word we say. Nothing can escape His view. We need to not only have good works, but also our words must be courteous, proper, and precise.

Proverbs 15:3
The eyes of Jehovah are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

Ecclesiastes 12:14
For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good or whether it be evil.

Jesus places a lot of importance on what we say. It is not just what we do. He says that we will answer for every idle word on Judgment Day.

Matthew 12:36-37
"But I say unto you, that every idle word which men shall say, they shall render an account of it in judgment day. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."

Look what Christ says in the following verse.

Matthew 12:38-40
Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from you. But he answered and said to them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 

When Jesus stated the sign of His Messiahship (3 days and 3 nights in the belly of the earth) it was the same sign that Jonah gave to the people. He had been in the belly of the fish for 3 days and 3 nights and on account of the chemical reactions on his flesh, his flesh was white and had lost all the melanin pigment -- Jonah became a sight in front of the Ninivites on account of refusing to follow the commandment of Yaweh, the eternal God. The Ninivites repented and God spared their destruction. Yes, Jonah looked like a ghost who came out of another world, and that scared the Ninivites into repentance. Read the whole story in Sign of the Messiah.

When Jesus stated the only sign for that generation, He did not use idle words. He meant what he said, and He stayed inside the tomb for the same amount of time that Jonah stayed inside the fish -- not one minute less. Therefore, when people say that Jesus was buried late on a Friday, and resurrected on Sunday before daybreak, they are making Him a liar, saying He used idle (vague) words, claiming that only part of a day was sufficient to keep the sign. 

What we answer to those statements is "Satan is the father of the lie;" Neither God the Father, nor Jesus would lie to you, or use idle words. God is precise in what He says, and He always keeps His promises.

Jesus cannot say that we will be judged by every idle word in one verse and lie to us in the very next verse. For Him, words are quite important.
