CODE OF BEHAVIOUR
Should we accept the fact that God positioned the stars in the universe, and set the scientific laws in place, each according to its specific codes and those codes are immutable, otherwise they wouldn’t be based on science but rather speculation, then surely this same God has also given us a code of behaviour. This code of behaviour, in order to be scientific, would have to be measured against an immutable standard in order for it to be scientific, not so? Could we be correct in naming such a code of behaviour, or character? I am sure you will agree that is the most appropriate description we could give it in our language. But now whose character would God use and how would He be able to communicate it to us so that we can relate to it on both a human and spiritual level?
CODE FOR HUMAN BEHAVIOUR
He came to earth, took on flesh demonstrated all of his holy character to us and had it recorded so that there would be an accurate translation for every race to read and understand. So, we put it to the reader that the Christian Bible is the accurate scientific code for human behaviour by which we can measure ourselves. In order for us not to get lost in our translation of this code God further built into it many checks and balances through which we could correlate it with the times or ages we found ourselves in. These are commonly known as prophecies and promises pertaining to certain future events He would bring about so that we could plot our course accurately through the oceans of time. 2Corithians 1:20 says:
“For all the promises of God in Him are yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God by us.”
PURPOSE AND DESTINY
Furthermore, God gave us a clear indication of how He brought this wonderful instrument of measure into our dimension. It was generated by His mind and communicated to us through the minds of chosen instruments via the agency of His Holy Spirit who is invisible yet present throughout creation very much like the invisible bands of magnetism that envelopes our globe, but with one major difference. His Holy Spirit is personal as much as our spirits are personal and unique to our personalities. And so we have a personal God who made us in His image and provided us with a manual for life by which we could plot our direction and find our purpose and destiny.
