Scientific Object Lessons to Teach Biblical Truths: Lessons 1-6

Object Lessons 1 to 6

Heating a balloon with a candle pops an empty balloon, just as one sin hurts our connection to God.  But a balloon filled with water will not pop, even when put directly into a candle flame.  The protection conferred from the ‘living water’ is similar to protection from salvation; both priceless yet free, both available to everyone, and both necessary for life, physical or eternal.

Just as David was able to defeat Goliath, so even the smallest person can out perform the biggest person in a competition to shoot Diet Coke out of a 2-liter, showing that no matter how big or small we are, we can accomplish great things with the help from God realized through prayer.

In this exercise, several unbelievable tasks will be performed that will be viewed as miraculous.  These include opening a banana and finding it already sliced, submerging a hand in a jar of water and pulling it out completely dry, and using a playing card to prevent water spilling out of a glass of water even when completely turned upside-down and the card removed.  However, these tasks are but tricks of science.  The miraculous events in the bible, though, are true miracles, that by definition exceed scientific explanation.  The belief that these biblical events occurred as written in the bible is pivotal to building a connection to God; our faith in God is only as strong as our faith in the bible as God's word.

We all need to let the light of Jesus shine. If we let it extinguish, we become more susceptible to worldly things coming in to fill the void.  The same is true in science.  A lit candle that sits is a pool of water is extinguished when a vase is placed over it.  The loss of the flame (heat) creates a void that is filled by the rising water.  But having this light is not enough to fulfill God’s plan, for many are needed to provide sufficient power to change the world.  The same is true for science.  This is called synergism and can be demonstrated using both a rubber ball and a bag experiment.

The “Parable of the Sower”, as written in Mark 4:3-8, describes the word of God given to his people.  The “Parable of the Tenants”, as written in Matthew 25:14-30, describes our responsibility to grow His word.  Just as seed sown from a farmer may fall on a path, rocky places, thorns, or good soil, so must we insure a fertile ground for His word to grow.  Moreover, this word must be nurtured to insure maximal growth.  This is only possible by eliminating Satan, establishing strong roots, not letting desires for worldly things come in to choke the word of God, being active in prayer, and going to church.  If we insure good soil and nurture the word, the bible says the seed will produce a crop thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown.  In this demonstration, we sow our “seeds” in fertile soil, add nurturing agents, and watch the expansion of the word grow 100 times instantly.

Just as Daniel was protected from the lions and Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were protected from the fiery furnace, so can sand be put underwater and remain dry and a cloth burn without igniting.  While not always God’s will to protect our earthly bodies, our heavenly bodies are protected by God by the sacrifice of his son Jesus, if we seek it.
