Extra Large to Extra Small

Romans 1:19-21

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

How big is God? That’s a question we often ponder in blissful wonder.

We don’t often ask the opposite question, how small is God? The answer to both questions, as imprecise as it is, is the title today.  God goes from extra large to extra small.

I read a lot. I’m curious that way.  I also watch TV documentaries.  I recently saw one explaining the size of the universe.  I didn’t realize that galaxies have horizons.  That’s what the smart guys with really big telescopes are telling us.  Imagine a group of galaxies and whatever can be seen from anywhere in them.  Just as we can’t see past the horizon on Earth, the galactic view from any galaxy has a horizon.  Imagine further that there are multiple, perhaps infinite, galaxy clusters, each with their own horizons.

At this point I can only say Holy Cannoli! Just how large can God get that He made a universe so huge it has horizons going out millions of light years??

The correct answer? EXTRA LARGE!

I’ve also been reading a book about DNA, molecular functions, and electrical systems in our bodies. God made cells that can only be seen through microscopes.  Cell walls are permeable, but only through certain portals (the technical term evades me just now), and those are opened and closed by other chemical/electrical processes.  Simplified, but essentially accurate.

It simply seems that no matter how small we go, God got there first and has yet another, smaller level that runs the world we see. We’ve learned that through atomics as well; first atoms, then electrons, protons, and neutrons, then some energy that holds them together, then smaller particles yet.  It all begs the question, just how small IS God anyway?

The correct answer? EXTRA SMALL!

How do we know all of this? The correct answer is from today’s bible text:

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made

We’ve made tools, microscopes, telescopes, scientific procedures and tests, and this is what God placed here for us to discover. Just in case the Milky Way, nature, and even our bodies aren’t enough.

Evolution. Some have made an argument that it’s like expecting a car to somehow assemble itself from the pieces and parts in a junkyard.  Evolutionists say that’s a ridiculous analogy.  After some thought, I’d have to agree with them.  Evolution, if true, would be way harder than that!

I was a service writer at an automotive garage early on, and I can tell you that the complexity of our bodies and creation in general is infinitely more complex than a car! Yet they claim that evolution, mere chance and accident, produced everything we can see from extra large to extra small.  Why?

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

God. He’s extra large.  And on the way to extra small, He even counted the hairs on your head!
