I am a Christian. I believe in the God of the Bible, in God the Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Spirit. I believe in Genesis 1:1 - "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (NIV)" I am a biochemist and a pharmacist by education. As such I have a desire to understand nature. I am writing this blog as my way to express the facts of true science as I understand them, from the perspective of one who believes that all things were created by God, for God and for His purposes.

Accidental Asteroid?

Going back to fire and brimstone and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, some think that since an asteroid (see Fire and Brimstone, July 2, 2011) came in and dropped shrapnel on Sodom that it was not an act of God. By science it can be determined when Sodom was destroyed and when the asteroid hit and its trajectory. These two events can be seen to have occurred at near the same time, close enough to be tied together. Does this make it a coincidence?

If you believe Genesis 1:1 then you have to believe that an asteroid entering the Earth's atmosphere can easily be controlled by the Creator. God is in control and intervenes into our lives to give us direction and to shape our destiny. We can move with His plan for us or work against it. Paul says "all things work together for good to those who love God (Romans 8:28a NKJV)." Abraham believed and Lot was a good man in a bad place so God touched the Universe to destroy a town but held it back until the nephew of a patriarch could be lifted out with a move of His hand.
