GUT (the Grand Unified Theory)--alias the Theory of Everything-- is the elusive jewel in the crown of today's modern scientists. Physicists, cosmologists, and evolutionists alike are all pouring record amounts of time and money into discovering that one theory that makes all of life make sense.
"To discover the grand unified theory (GUT) or the theory of everything (TOE)," says Christian scientist and author Dr. Richard Swenson, "would bring world-wide fame and assure a Nobel Prize. It also would bring world-immortalization similar to that enjoyed by Einstein's name. Yet such a discovery," he continues, "has proven elusive. Even Einstein himself searched the last twenty-five years of his life for this theory without success."
Swenson goes on to relate the following exchange with famed British physicist, Dr. Stephen Hawking (a heralded voice in the anti-God scientific community): “When … Hawking was asked his opinion about the biggest unsolved problem in physics today, he did not equivocate: "The theory of everything. … We feel that we are near, but we never get there. It always seems just over the rainbow's edge." When asked if the task will be finished soon, Hawking replied: "My money is on it."
Hawking's concluding paragraph in his best-selling A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME reads: "If we do discover a complete theory, it should in time be understandable in broad principle by everyone, not just a few scientists. Then we shall all, philosophers, scientists, and just ordinary people, be able to take part in the discussion of the question of why it is that we and the universe, exist. if we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason-- for then we would know the mind of God." Ironically, Swenson points out that Hawking often makes reference to God, though he is quick to say that he does not believe in a personal deity, an intentional designer, or in an afterlife.
There is indeed a GUT (Grand Unified Theory), a TOE (Theory of Everything), a discovery that answers the elusive questions of life, and It's right under our noses, immortalized in the pages of Scripture. "For by him [Christ] all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is he head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.” (Colossians 1:16-18)
As Hawking suggests, a theory of everything can be "understood in broad principle by everyone, not just a few scientists." Indeed, Jesus makes it possible for "philosophers, scientists, and just ordinary people…to take part in the discussion of the question of why it is that we and the universe, exist . . . [and to] know the mind of God."
