But you are asking this question from thinking in a brain attached to a body that is grounded on an earth that is revolving around the sun in a paradigm of the laws of nature which we are used to witnessing and responding to…we surely would not want to limit God who made the universe to being subject of the very nature He created.
Folks have told yecs that they are so scientifically off their rocker that this is the reason that many intellectuals wont explore the claims of Christ. Problem w this view is that the Bible does not say that God delights in revealing Himself to intellectuals, but rather to those with a childlike faith who are the ones most capable of true understanding of the vastness of difference between the majesty of God and the weakness in man. Remember that the big sin in the garden was mistrusting God and wanting to be like Him or better put-being the self-ultimate. Adam failed and the better Adam in Jesus bought the privilege of reconciliation of man back to God where the greatest treasure is Him for eternity. And we will all stand before Him one day and He will ask for an account of the things we did and the words we spoke on earth. So when it comes to the subtle accessment that man places upon God when we abide by an old earth evolutionary view that He creates natural evils and that He creates via survival of the fitest and disposal of the weak, to many of us this feels like walking on thin ice and disrespect to the God whom we love because He first loved us. So we choose to side w the essence that Scripture pronounces while the world calls us fools. Since scripture says that God confounds those wise in their own eyes, in the end it could very well be that those hoping in their intelligence may be the ones more of that category in the end.
Im not trying to win a debate here. Rather, i take the existence of God and His Words very seriously. If faith in God has eternal ramifications one of two very opposite destinies, all Christians should be serious.
