Parallels of God’s Creation and a Complex Software System in Three Paragraphs

Time happens thus change is inevitable in most regards.  Accordingly the health and integrity of an established software system depends on routine maintenance and enhancements.  Evolution is perhaps God’s solution for the health and integrity of His physical composition of “What is”.

The user interface of a software system provides the “space” where interaction between humans and the complex system occur.  It is not incomprehensible that this space is finite.  Space is merely allocated as needed.  Perhaps the physical world provides the interactive “space” for life, where matter and energy is finite.  Our individual bodies might be viewed as integral components containing sensors and associative drivers (perception), to resolve personal isolation.

Design, in compliance to adopted architecture, stages an implementable solution with available resources and local desires.  Architecture preemptively establishes, with the stroke of the pen, a fundamentally intuitive holistic framework to realize the success of the vision centric system.  The vision, architecture, and design always prelude implementation.  Such is the case with God’s creation.

Trust is Earned

The supreme aim (what), unparalleled intention (why), and consummate wisdom (how) anticipated within the Holy Scripture collectively has earned my trust and decisive adoption as authoritative truth.  The Lord’s goodness is confirmed through worldly demonstration but He promises even more, which we can also believe simply because of His authority.

Convincing Proof

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.  For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.  When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.  For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”  I Corinthians 13
