Laws of Nature

Yes, I believe in the “laws of nature.”But there is more to it than that. There is a power beyond the natural law. There is God; there is Christ; there is the Spirit. Above and beyond and in control is God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


Paul in the Book of Colossians writes of the role of Christ in creation saying: “By him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.” He then adds, “And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” (Colossians 1:16-17) That is, not only is He the creator of all things but it is by Him that all things continue to exist.


The book of Hebrews affirms the same thing. In giving a list of six wondrous things about the Son of God, the writer includes this: “Upholding all things by the word of his power.” (Hebrews 1:3) That is, just as in the original creation of the world, God spoke and it was done, even now the whole creation is upheld by the word of Christ.
