THE UNIVERSE UNDER CENTRAL CONTROL (C. 1958)

Popular conceptions are often misleading. It is, for instance, generally believed that science is like a brilliant and talkative old man who knows all the answers. Instead, science is like a young man who asks a lot of questions. He does much thinking and pondering. He attempts to keep careful, classified notes. The typical scientist is never satisfied that he has the final truth on anything at all.

NATURALISM MUST BOW TO THEISM (C. 1958)

THROUGHOUT all the ages of human history man has asked three profound questions: Whence came I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Many hundreds of books on metaphysics have dealt with these questions. The riddle of existence is an age-old problem. The thesis of this chapter is that theism provides the most satisfactory answer to a rational mind.

CHEMICAL LAWS AND GOD (CIRCA 1958)

What is the directing force that underlies the laws of statistics? When one applies the laws of chance to the proba­bility of an event occurring in Nature, such as the formation of a single protein molecule from the elements, even if we allow three billion years for the age of the earth or more, there isn’t enough time for the event to occur. Only by postulating a directional Force with a purposeful end can we account for the harmony and order which have come from chaos.

FACTS FROM A FORESTER’S FIELDBOOK (C. 1958)

God is not the author of confusion. Quite in contrast, His creative acts are systematically arranged to exhibit order at its highest level.

A FISH, A PLANT, AND A WORM : ALL ON A MISSION FROM GOD

PHOENIX POLICE AND DIVINE PROVIDENCE

TOZER: WE TRAVEL AN APPOINTED WAY

It is unthinkable that a God of infinite wisdom and power would create a world without a definite plan for that world. And because God is thus infinite His plan must extend to every detail of the world’s existence. If we could see the world in all its relations, past, present, and future, we would see that it is following a predetermined course with exact precision. – Lorraine Boettner

VIDEO VAULT (1985): HENRY MORRIS – GRADE “B” MIRACLES (KNOWN BY CALVINISTS AS “PROVIDENCE”)

Although the price of the sparrow is small, and its flight seems giddy and at random, yet it does not fall to the ground, nor alight anywhere without your Father. His all-wise providence hath before appointed what bough it shall perch upon; what grains it shall pick up; where it shall lodge and where it shall build; on what it shall live and where it shall die. – Lorraine Boettner
