“I believe in one God, Creator of the Universe. That he governs the
World by his Providence. That he ought to be worshiped.
That the most acceptable Service we can render him,
is doing good to his other Children…”
“A sound explanation may exist for the explosive birth of our Universe; but if it does, science cannot find out what the explanation is. The scientist’s pursuit of the past ends in the moment of creation. This is an exceedingly strange development, unexpected by all but the theologians. They have always accepted the word of the Bible: in the beginning God created heaven and earth….
“At this moment it seems as though science will never be able to raise the curtain on the mystery of creation. For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”

The Sabbath provides a weekly reminder that God
deserves worship since He created all life on Planet Earth,
and humans, in His own image. He spoke and it was done;
He commanded and it stood fast.
