I was watching the television programme “the wonder of life” in which an eminent scientist said that life was nothing but kinetic energy, no more significant than the rolling of a rock down a hill. So I ask a question, are we nothing more than empty bags of energy and impermanent presents which leaves nothing behind but the energy which started it?
With the greatest goodwill in the world; it would not be to a scientist that I would turn the answers about the nature of our existence. Humanity cannot be boiled down to an equation; it is not suffering times wisdom that equal soul. It is trite but true to say that we are more than sum of our parts. I cannot prove this; I can show no evidence for this I cannot give you a calculation which is even infers it. I believe with this question we have come to the edge of science we have come to the end of the path where only fact can take us. It is time to take the leap beyond mere facts to the deeper truth.
Science often tries to justify religion by describing it as some sort of advance fear mechanism but religion contains within it a truth beyond the sciences conception of this truth is this. That though we may just be bags of energy, we are more than this. Religion knows that our Lord and Master made as to become greater than we were, he let us to strive towards perfection as we stagger towards him open armed.
It seems ridiculous to have to repeat this but I will, the value of one man is beyond calculation his purpose beyond fathom and his glory beyond the counting for it has pleased the Lord thy God of Israel to anoint him as a child of God and forge him up on this earth. It is God’s well to give each of us a sole and eternal essence like his are part of ourselves that is beyond the laws of physics beyond the shackles of this world and which will escape when this bag of nothing finally ends its role down the hill of life.
In conclusion I would like to remind you of an old saying. I am nothing but dust in motion for a light came from dust and will return to dust but all that I am will survive. All that I am is eternal, and all that I am is pleasing in the sight of God for he thought me as I am him and him in me. Let science calculate their empty bags in letters and let us preach the truth of the eternal soul. For no man is saved my calculation but only through making that leap from fact to truth.
