Let's say you looked through this window long enough to get the basic concepts. Yes, science deals with information concerning what our five sense can tell us about the material world. But, so too, we see evidence for design in the scientific data. Design points to an intelligence at work in the background. To some persons that intelligence is God. Others don't know or don't want to accept this being as God. If design, if an intelligence, then life is special and not entirely a product of material being. To sum it up, life is special and perhaps has a specific purpose.
Of all ancient writings the Hebrew text of the Tanach (Hebrew Bible) tells mankind to take dominion over the earth and all that live therein. All environs and all living beings, plant and animal, are ours to care for. We are to be stewards. Today, we fail this mandate.
We are now harvesting what we have sown — as a corporate human society, the entire global population. This happens because we decided to live in the material way. To satisfy our material needs we have exploited and depleted the earth. Our support system now erodes from under us. Our corporate sin faces us head on and yet many live in denial, but denial is no longer an option.
The conclusion to this material journey is that Global Changes now force us into a corner. We've reached a crossroads and face crisis. Many will ask the question: 'Who can save us from this dilemma?' The world will seek a worldly answer. Governments will join, coalesce, and yet the problems will persist.
Adding Scriptural Perspective
Finally, there is the dilemma of one people who know to expect someone to come and save them. The House of Israel was installed in place to point the way for all the Earth's nations. This chosen group knows to expect a coming King, a Messiah, to lead humanity. It's an old story worn by time. The mystery has been really in uncovering an incredible connection between the Jewish roots of Judaism and Christianity.
To those who have read Proverbs 30:4, Psalm 22, Isaiah 53, and other passages, it is clear that the identity that ties faiths together is clear. Not everything can be known by the five senses. Understanding the One who will return to lead humanity out of this era of ever changing dilemmas is a key focal point. Here is the souce of a Step Up To Life.
Put It All Together
A paradigm is a model that explains what works.
The paradigm that can be created by you is simply an acknowledgement of what is material and what goes beyond the material. There is a choice in forming the paradigm, for this is a model that adds life eternal onto the end of the short time span of your current life experience. The clue is in understanding that intelligent design is reality because a relationship between you and the creative intelligence that put you here is the entire point of your being here in the first place. Deny it and you get to sit out eternity in the shadows. Embrace it and you get life in the light. Step into the light, Step Up To Life!
