A major star of the old M*A*S*H series has a “message” for mankind (I guess). It is printed in the latest AARP issue and starts off “trust in Science.” As a minister of the gospel of Christ for over 50 years I cannot stand by and say nothing about this. I think the following questions are in order.
My Bible says “trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding” (Prov. 3:5). Science has been a “god” far too long already. Man worships about everything but God anymore. At the end of Revelation 22:9, John wrote in his day “worship God.” Science has led man around by the nose long enough. The first commandment given by Jesus is to love the Lord thy God with every fiber of our being (Mark 12:30). But let’s ask some questions:
Did science create the world? My Bible says God did (Gen. 1:1; Jn. 1:1-3). Did Science send a Saviour to die on the cross for man? (Jn. 3:16; Rom. 5:8,9). Did man need a Saviour? Paul wrote “there is none righteous, no, not one” (Rom. 3:10). Is Charles Darwin a saviour? I believed Jesus Christ (and still do) that Christ is man’s Redeemer (Eph. 1:7; Jn. 8:24). Does man receive forgiveness when a rocket goes into space? When many good deeds are done by men? Isaiah wrote that our good deed are as
“filthy rags” (Isa. 64:6). God receives no glory, yet “he that glories, glory in the Lord” (I Cor. 1:30).
Our “star” from “M*A*S*H” has trust in the wrong thing and that trust without God is as wrong as anything can be. Without Christ “we can do nothing” (Jn. 15:5). Trust in science? I don’t think so!!!
