I am reading a book about a fiber optic line laid from Chicago to New York to gain a 4 millisecond advantage on stock trading. A millisecond is a thousandth of a second. People are amazingly smart, especially if there is money to be made!
If we are smart enough to figure out how to gain milliseconds to rip off slow people, how could we miss God’s revelation of Himself in Creation?
According to Paul, there is no excuse for missing the evidence for God by creation.
At the same time, you may be able to know God by creation, but there is no way to know the Father except through the Son.
Yes, the stars and trees point to God, but you can’t know the Father apart from the Son. I know this because the Son said so. “neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.”
Knowing God exists and knowing God are two separate things. Seeing God by creation should drive a person to know more about who God is. This desire to know will drive that person to the Son, Jesus Christ, for a full education.
