Proverbs 25:2 (ESV)
It is the glory of God to conceal things,
but the glory of kings is to search things out.
It is the glory of God to conceal things – What a glorious truth! God is in the business of hiding things with the express purpose of having us seek them out. It is the glory of Kings to seek things out. God does not tell us everything we need to know. He orchestrates things in such a way that we will have to seek things out and find them.
Every discovery of science is a testimony of God’s purposes being realized for His glory and the good of mankind. When man discovers something and uses it for his own glory or the death of people (think of dynamite, stem cell research, “safe” abortions, cloning … ) then he is living in direct contradiction of the purpose of the discovery and running away from God.
This is great wickedness. Christians are to be in their fields of work and study for the benefit of mankind and the glory of God. The two do not disagree and the world is crying for such voices of ethics and intelligence.
May God grant that we would use the knowledge that He has allowed us to develop in ways that will not have the charge of sin levelled against us in their use.
