Cosmology, Philosophy, and Biblical Truth

Updated on February 19, 2011

Distinguish Truth from Fallacies

 Peace.

Yes, the Latin phrase "ex nihilo"  which means "out of nothing", has been used in various fields in the past.

Correspondingly, the Hellenistic converse [Plato's primum movens], which was used in professed Christianity, to frame the "First Cause", concept.


Those who applied ex nihilo, even quoted from the Apocryphal Macabees as at:

 

"My son, have pity on me; I carried you nine months in the womb and suckled you three years.... I implore you, my child, observe heaven and earth, consider all that is in them, and acknowledge that God made them out of what did not exist, and that mankind comes into being in the same way. Do not fear this executioner, but prove yourself worthy of your brothers, and make death welcome, so that in the day of mercy I may receive you back in your brothers' company."
2 Maccabees 7:27-29 Jerusalem Bible

 

Distinction of Truth from Fallacies.


Astoundingly, though, Modern Science, current understanding in Cosmology, support a flat model
universe, which would mean, that the universe came from NOTHING.

The most attested ancient Writings available today [Bible], agrees with this.


Isaiah 40:22 NW

22 There is One who is dwelling above the circle of the earth, the dwellers in which are as grasshoppers, the One who is stretching out the heavens just as a fine gauze, who spreads them out like a tent in which to dwell,


You should have noted "..stretching out the heavens just as a fine gauze..", which give an indication of the geometry of the universe.

 

Energy creates Matter.


Isaiah 40 NW


 26 “Raise YOUR eyes high up and see. Who has created these things? It is the One who is bringing forth the army of them even by number, all of whom he calls even by name. Due to the abundance of dynamic energy, he also being vigorous in power, not one [of them] is missing.


Universe came from Nothing.


The Bible gives the name of the Creator as YHWH rendered as JEHOVAH in English, and which
means, "He Causes To Become".


When creating the literal heavens and earth, Jehovah did not use pre-existent material. This is from Genesis 1:1, which says: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” If matter had always existed, it would have been inappropriate to use the term “beginning” with reference to material things.
The Hebrew ba.ra” and the Greek kti’zo, both meaning, “create,” are used exclusively with reference to divine creation.


Uncaused and First Cause


Scriptures clearly show that Jehovah caused the Word to be and through the Word created ALL that
was created.


The Word or the First Cause is referred to as divine, godlike, or a god. Now this is not unreasonable
as Jesus Christ Himself quoted Psalm 82:1, 6, where Jehovah called certain humans, "gods", as
at John 10 NW.


 34 Jesus answered them: “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said: “YOU are gods”’? 35 If he called ‘gods’ those against whom the word of God came, and yet the Scripture cannot be nullified, 36 do YOU say to me whom the Father sanctified and dispatched into the world, ‘You blaspheme,’ because I said, I am God’s Son?

 

John 1:1

 
1808 "and the word was a god' The New Testament, in An Improved Version,

Upon the Basis of Archbishop Newcome's

New Translation: With a Corrected Text, London.


1864 "and a god was the Word" The Emphatic Diaglott by Benjamin Wilson.


1935 "and the Word was divine" The Bible- An American Translation, by J.M.P.

Smith and E. J. Goodspeed, Chicago.


John 1 NW

 

1 In [the] beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god. 2 This one was in [the] beginning with God. 3 All things came into existence through him, and apart from him not even one thing came into existence.

 

Uncaused is Eternal has no beginning nor ending, He caused the First Cause to Be and trough the
First Cause created All.

 

1 Corinthians 8  NW


 6 there is actually to us one God the Father, out of whom all things are, and we for him; and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are, and we through him.

See also, please, Colossians 1:15- 17; Hebrews 1:1, 2; Revelation 3:14.
