The Best of all possible codes

by Richard Gunther

DNA is found in every living cell of your body. It has the beautiful shape of a spiral staircase, with each rung being a letter in the DNA alphabet. The three billion letters spell the instructions for life.

The DNA alphabet has four letters. Before the alphabet can be used it must be copied (RNA) and then the copy begins to assemble the machinery it needs to construct or repair—or do whatever task it has to do.

Now, suppose you were able to look at the code for a huge computer game. All those zeros and ones would be an amazing sight. In order to use that code, you’d have to make a copy into your hard drive and it would have to operate in an orderly way with every part activated in the right sequence.

DNA and computer codes are the same in one way: if there are too many mistakes, they do not work. We know absolutely that it takes an intelligent mind to design a computer code, so what does this mean when we think about the DNA code?

We know man designed computer codes. We know computer codes must be correctly written or they are useless. Now, apply these standards to DNA code.

There is an even better code than DNA

by Paul Humber

We call it God’s Word, the Bible. It is better than DNA because DNA only indirectly points to God’s brilliance; the Scriptures directly point to God—even giving us his name, Yahweh/Jesus. It also explains the fall of our first parents. In the Old Testament, it promises his coming into the world and his take on of human flesh to save Jewish and Gentile sinners.

It gives not only his direct teaching, but it also explains what he did to save humans

  • going to the cross,
  • being crucified, and
  • coming alive again a mere three days later.

But does the Old Testament prophesy not only of the death of the Messiah but also his resurrection? See my article 400 Prophecies of Christ in the Old Testament published by the Associates for Biblical Research.

Some people seem to think I put these images out to promote myself. I hope this is not the case. My main goal is to point people to the only hope beyond death.

One person wrote recently that he did not want immortality. Perhaps this is because he does not know the joy of a personal relationship with his Maker. I would think no one would want to experience even one minute in hell.

Hi, I’m Cheri Fields: 2nd generation homeschooling mom of seven, wife, writer, and science lover. There is a wealth of information available to help people see how trustworthy God and His testimony in the Bible is. The key is to explain concepts simply so they can be understood by anyone. This is my goal, and I’ve had a lot of fun tackling areas where the world tests our faith.
