This week’s Bible subject: Is the Universe, Including Man, Evolved by Atomic Force?

The following Bible verse opens up this message and provides the central idea, or Golden Text. The Golden Text is followed by supporting Bible verses called the Responsive Reading (also below). In the Sunday service, participants join in reading the Responsive Reading together out loud.

Golden Text | Psalms 24:1
The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell

Responsive Reading | Jeremiah 10:10 the (to :), 11–13 The (to ;), 23; Job 38:1 the, 4, 32, 33, 36; 42:1, 2
. . . the Lord is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king:
. . . The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.
He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.
When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth;
O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.
. . . the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?
Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?
Then Job answered the Lord, and said,
I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.
