"God's Fingerprints Are Everywhere" - by Rev. Weldon Bares


Have you ever heard of Francis Collins? He is a world renowned scientist. He is the director of the National Institutes of Health and also the director of the Human Genome Project, which first mapped human DNA. I see him on the national news two or three times a week. He wrote an interesting book entitled, “The Language of God.”

Consider something that this famous scientist said: “I think of God as the greatest scientist. We human scientists have an opportunity to understand the elegance and wisdom of God’s creation in a way that is truly exhilarating. When a scientist discovers something that no human knew before, but God did - - that is both an occasion for scientific excitement and, for a believer, also an occasion for worship.”

Sir Isaac Newton, one of the greatest scientists of all time, wrote, “When I look at the solar system, I see the earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance.” (Physics, Mathematics)

Louis Pasteur is the father of microbiology. He wrote, “The more that I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator.”

I just believe that the evidence for God is all around us, and inside of us. The scripture affirms, “The heavens declare the glory of God.” (Psalm 19:1) God’s fingerprints are everywhere.
