God And History

  We live in a world that is two sided. We have the physical universe in which we can see, touch, feel, taste, and we live also in a spiritual universe. This universe we can't see, touch or feel with our normal senses. But it is there.
   History records the events in the physical world. History is just the what of things. History can be known because facts are written down and placed in books. History is not about meaning .
    History is possible because there is a God.  We can know about this God because He has chosen to reveal Himself to all. He has spoken and has caused to be written the Bible. This, I contend, is His communication. It records history.
     I also contend because there is a God there is a meaning to history. God adds meaning to history.
     When we read the Bible we have to add the dimension of theology to get to the meaning . Without theology as a tool we have no meaning to history.
      In other words, there must be a God to give meaning.
      You have a better chance at understanding history if you have a relationship. Without this relationship you have no meaning to what is recorded in the history books or in the Bible.
      Maybe you don't have any type of relationship. Maybe you need to redefine 'relationship'

A good place to go to explore the idea is here. Click on it and it will take you to a web page on the subject. And you may wish to take part in the offers there..
