So here we are in the Information Age. Yet, information was around during all previous ages. Only the variety and sophistication of the media which carry information gives our age that title. In fact information has existed since time began.
One obvious aspect of information is that it requires a SENDER.
Every snapshot video, mobile phone text, social media post, e-mail, voice call, paper letter, or smoke signal ever received was SENT. Where there is no sender, there can be no information. The more complex the information, the greater must be the intelligence of the sender.
DNA is an extremely complex form of information. It well has been described as an intricate code or a very detailed blueprint. This amazing information is meticulously recorded at the microscopic level in all living things, from germs to geniuses. It provides the genetic instructions which enable all living things to procreate, grow, and function.
So who wrote that intricate code? Who drafted that detailed blueprint? With whom did those instructions, written on the medium of molecules, originate? In short, who SENT the information contained in DNA?
To learn more about the source of that information, Who has nothing to hide, read the first chapter of the book of Genesis.
For more specific information about the origin, nature, purpose of, and original plan for humanity, read chapter two.
Read chapter three for even more specific and historically accurate information. There you will learn why we live in such a world as this. You’ll find out why we live in a world where crime exists. (Thankfully DNA information is so helpful in solving crimes. What depth of foresight on the part of the information Sender!)
For further information that will prove more helpful than you could ever imagine, even in your wildest dreams, and most importantly to find hope, keep reading.
If you stick with your reading plan, eventually you will come to the following statement found in a letter to a student from his mentor. This statement refers to the incalculable value of that information, and urges the student to continue his course of life in light of it. We do well if we internalize the statement for ourselves…make it our own…get it into our spiritual DNA:
“You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” — Saul of Tarsus, also known as Paul the apostle of Jesus Christ, to his Greek/Jewish spiritual son Timothy, c. A.D. 60
