I often Quote Albert Einstein in light of his obvious wisdom in some areas and I like him because we both had a tough time with math. He overcome it and I, well let’s get on with today’s thought.
I think it is only fair to say Einstein failed miserably in life’s greatest test. Note this statement:
“The word of God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses. The Bible is a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation, no matter how subtle, can change this for me.”
I have never understood the near fanatical infatuation of Princeton University with Einstein. I understand he was a gentle old man who played the violin and was nice to professors and students alike, but what about God? What about His word?
A look into the personal world of Einstein gives a reasonable idea of his rejection of God and His Word. He understood that a belief in God and in His Word would demand a change in his personal life. This change would involve a dependence on God’s help through Christ to overcome his very human nature.
As I read about Al this passage came to mind; Romans 1:28 “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”
