The Clockwork of the Universe

Perhaps your self-image is in the dumps and you feel empty inside. Or life is good but your faith is beckoning you to go deeper. Perhaps you have suffered a staggering loss or are clawing your way through a crisis. Maybe you view faith as a fairy tale and a crutch. Whether you feel stressed or blessed, whether you seek inspiration or entertainment, examining your core beliefs about God and the universe just might transform your life.

Do you view the universe as a friendly, orderly realm and God as a benevolent, merciful presence? Do you see the world as a harsh, unforgiving place and God as a thunderbolt-hurling, punishing force?

Do you question the very existence of God? Do you believe the workings of the universe are random and capricious and that life intrinsically lacks meaning and purpose?

Do you demand irrefutable evidence of God’s presence that your senses and science can observe and measure?

One can search the brain with a microscope and not find the mind, and can search the stars with a telescope and not find God.
J. Gustav White

While some may argue that belief in God requires a leap of faith, great philosophers throughout history have reasoned that the existence of divine intelligence is logical and inescapable.

Aristotle argued that all of creation is imbued with inherent purpose, and that the synthesis of order, direction, and continual motion in the universe cannot be a byproduct of chance.

I cannot imagine how the clockwork of the universe can exist without a clockmaker.
Voltaire

As you accept the notion of a divine intelligence at work in the world, your awareness of and appreciation for the perfection of God’s plan gradually expands.

Take all the time you need. God has infinite patience and the laws of the universe will continue to operate.

If you understand, things are just as they are; if you do not understand, things are just as they are.
Zen wisdom

Close your mind to the existence of God, and you close the door to a wondrous new dimension bursting with untold opportunities to welcome even more peace, joy, and love into your heart.

Remember this. When people choose to withdraw far from a fire, the fire continues to give warmth, but they grow cold. When people choose to withdraw far from light, the light continues to be bright in itself but they are in darkness. This is also the case when people withdraw from God.
Saint Augustine

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at GodIsLogical.com.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?


Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
