Death And Spilled Water

“For we must needs die, and are as water spilled on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again; neither doth God respect any person: yet doth He devise means, that His banished be not expelled from Him” (II Samuel 14:14).

The inevitability of death is here compared to spilt water disappearing into the ground. The comparison is quite incisive.

Both processes are examples of “irreversible processes,” operating (as do all real processes) in accordance with the universal law of increasing entropy, or increasing disorganization, also known as the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This best-proved law of science observes that every real system or process in nature—unless artificially constrained otherwise—tends to go down to disorder, randomness, decay, and death. All this explicitly contradicts the anti-scientific theory of evolution, despite the modern-day slavish commitment of most “intellectuals” to evolutionism—a “science falsely so called” (I Timothy 6:20), if there is such a thing! No one has ever been able to see evolution in action, for this simple reason: nature works in the opposite direction.

Only a miracle of creation, requiring the divine intervention of the Creator, Himself, could suspend or reverse the law of entropy (or make natural evolution possible) in any given system or process. Gathering spilled water back up from the ground into its container, or restoring the dead back to life, is no more improbable than evolving an ape into a man.

Only the Creator can create life from death, and the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ after three days in the grave (as certainly proved historically as any other fact of history!), is proof positive that Jesus Christ is the Creator (note John 1:1–3; 20:30,31). And He does devise means whereby lost and dying sinners—through the work of Christ can be brought back to Him and given everlasting life. HMM
