Modern science is continually bringing new knowledge to civilization. Each important scientific discovery—each new piece of knowledge—is received worldwide with excitement and acclaim.
Reflect on all that science has given to mankind at large. It has put men on the moon and created weapons of mass destruction. It has broken down the genetic codes of DNA and cloned numerous creatures. It has learned much about the immense size and nature of the universe—outer space—and discovered incredible things about the tiny sub-atomic particles in atoms—inner space. It has made numerous medical breakthroughs and accomplished amazing feats of engineering.
Most believe that, given time, scientific discoveries will solve most or all of mankind’s problems. Yet science is limited in a vitally important way that involves you. There is a discovery it will never—and can never—make about the nature of the human mind!
This world’s religions have missed it. Their theologians neither teach nor comprehend it. They have completely overlooked this critical component—this single vital key—that unlocks the enormous difference between men and animals. Only by understanding this revealed key can you learn your purpose for being!
Look at all the amazing works of nature—both on Earth and throughout the heavens. The kaleidoscope of God’s handiwork that can be seen by the human eye is staggering.
Consider the planets, stars and galaxies. Each is its own marvel. Then reflect on all of the species of plants found on Earth. There are millions, diverse in color, shape, size and beauty. The brilliance of their various designs and purposes is incredible! Now think of the one million different kinds of animals—and 12 million types of insects. They are as remarkable and fascinating as the world of plants, regarding their function, appearance and behavior.
While the creations described above are marvelous and amazing, none is more incredible than the human mind. None rival its complexity and nearly unlimited capabilities. It is the absolute pinnacle of all living organisms. Nothing else in God’s Creation comes close. What else can plan, think or create to even a fraction of the same degree?
Just think about how many things the mind can design and produce: houses, telephones, trains, automobiles, planes, rockets, computers and other sophisticated devices that are practically limitless in complexity and usefulness. The only thing it cannot design and build is itself!
When King David said, “...for I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psa. 139:14), this is most true of your brain, and the human mind! The Creator sent along with it a detailed Instruction Manual containing vital information, explaining the nature, design and purpose of this greatest of all creations. He identifies the hidden key—the missing dimension!—to its right and proper use, opening the way to peace, happiness, abundance and prosperity.
Yet this Instruction Manual—the Bible—is almost universally ignored, misrepresented, misunderstood and rejected. As a result, the problems, troubles and evils of civilization mount with no solution in sight and conditions only growing worse.
Apply basic logic. Would God create His marvel of engineering—your mind—and send it without an Instruction Book explaining how to use it? Of course not!
Now take a step back. Most spend their entire lives worried about what people think and say. Few concern themselves with what God thinks or says. Be honest and examine yourself. Do you derive your opinions from people? Or do you regularly search and accept the plain Word of God as the guide for your life?
The following scripture explains why even the most brilliant minds are completely unable to learn certain understanding, unless it is revealed to them. Notice: “Jesus…said, I thank You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them unto babes” (Matt. 11:25).
The greatest thinkers of this world cannot fathom the things God has revealed in the Bible! They are hidden from them. But you can—if you are willing to examine God’s Word for what He reveals about the mind. It will open your thinking to incredible new understanding about why you were born—and your awesome future and potential.
