Lecture 8, I AM: The Aseity of God:
The hypothesis of spontaneous generation circulates in the realm of scientific study as the answer to the origin of the universe. Something spontaneously generated from nothing into the nascent form of the universe we witness today. The concept smacks of absurdity, and it renders Christians shocked and incredulous at times. How can anyone adhere to such a doctrine? Yet, this ridiculous unbelief should not surprise us. Paul tells us in Romans 1 that “although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened” (1:21). We should expect unbelievers to deny the truth, and this should lead us to thank our Lord that He shined a light in the darkness of our hearts when we, too, persisted in unbelief.
