FAVORITE BIBLE VERSES: “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” (Proverbs 25:2)

Posted by lehunt on March 31, 2016

What I love about this proverb is that it divinely sanctions the virtues of philosophy and science.  Also, I believe that it gives us some insight into the nature of God and part of his purpose in making us.  God is a presenter of mysteries, and he desires for us to use our faculties for rational thought and prayer to peer into these mysteries.  Since this proverb seemed like a good title for a book of philosophy, I made it the title of my book, THE GLORY OF KINGS: A PHILOSOPHICAL DEFENSE OF CHRISTIANITY.  Below is a lecture that I delivered on a section of the book at Harding University Lectureship, September 2015.

Lecture Thesis:  The modern belief that mindless forces can be ultimately responsible for natural events is a conceptual impossibility founded on the bad analogy of machines. Every force ultimately governing the universe must be divine or angelic,  and monotheism’s eternal mind will always be the most complete and justifiable explanation for the existence of the universe as a whole, even for the existence of the angels themselves.
