Math and God

I just finished reading a blog post about our aversion to advanced math, and a though struck me. Math exists. Math is true; it always works. It’s based on facts that don’t change with time, the weather, or how you feel at the moment. The more I started thinking about it, the more I realized how like God math is. People shy away from math as soon as it becomes difficult for them. They don’t want to take the time to really break things down and wrap their minds around each and every concept. But when you do work at it a little, it’s really satisfying to understand something that was once hidden. I was thinking about how worldly the church has become. Children don’t honor their parents, wives don’t submit to their husbands. We read the same books, watch the same movies; we want to be like the world, to fit in. We don’t like want to stick out like a sore thumb. We’re content to stay just where we are. But the further we go on the path to holiness, the more we understand. Everything comes together and begins to make sense. We begin to realize just how wrong we were to resist.

  1. Amen! I couldn’t agree wih you more!!! I pray that Christians everywhere dig deeper in their walks with the Lord. We were appointed to be His light in this world. If we will not take up the cross and do as He charges we have truly failed Him.
