Biblical Faith 3

            Like the sudden appearance of complex life-forms during the Cambrian Explosion, or the vast amount of complex information we find in molecular DNA, or the burst of creativity that occurred at the Big Bang, or the amazing and incomprehensibly balanced fine-tuning we discover in the Anthropic Principle that enables complex life like ourselves to exist…the materialistic and naturalistic worldviews are orders of magnitude too simplistic to explain this gap…this interval…this displacement of distance on the vertical spectrum of good and evil…of spiritual light and darkness. Material particles and naturalistic causes could never produce the complexity of this reality in the realm of moral reasoning.

To postulate that material particles alone could produce the gap that exists in a God-composed adventure of faith life-script as recorded in the narrative stories of faith in the Bible…to produce the complexity of moral reasoning that this entails…is nonsensical.

To postulate that material particles alone could or would produce human beings that are morally imperfect, non-divine, and are a mix of good and evil, light and darkness…in all of the depth and breadth of complexity that this entails…is also nonsensical.

If true and accurate, this concept of a gap in our moral status and performance…as illustrated on a vertical graph-line spectrum of goodness and light…is a huge refutation of the atheistic worldview of naturalism…a worldview that aims to undermine biblical faith.

I work in building construction as a field superintendent and project manager. I have four books published by McGraw-Hill on housing construction (1995-98) under Bart Jahn, and have six Christian books self-published through Create Space KDP. I have a bachelor of science degree in construction management from California State University Long Beach. I grew up in Southern California, was an avid surfer, and am fortunate enough to have always lived within one mile of the ocean. I discovered writing at the age of 30, and it is now one of my favorite activities. I am currently working on two more books on building construction.
