In the apostle Peter’s address after the healing of the lame man in at the temple gate he describes Jesus as the ‘ἀρχηγὸν’ of life. This expression which is difficult to translate could mean that Jesus is the Lord of life or Jesus is the designer of life. Both are, in fact, true.
Charles Darwin had another idea about the origin of life without a designer. He described a ‘warm little pond’ where life might have originated by chance. Scientists trying to find a mechanism for the origin of life have made very little progress in 150 years.
The difficulty is to try to find and impersonal origin for information.
Even the simplest form of life contains large amounts of information in coded form. A ‘simple’ bacterial cell (the picture above shows some bacteria on the end of a pin) contains more information than the number of characters in the whole of the English Bible !
Since Jesus has demonstrated that he is the architect of life and the Lord of life by conquering death it is right to believe that he alone has the credibility to offer eternal life.
This is exactly what he does: ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life.’ John 6:47
