God’s White Box

By irreducibly complex, I mean a single system composed of several well-matched, interacting parts that contribute to the basic function, wherein the removal of any one of the parts causes the system to effectively cease functioning.

—Michael J. Behe, Darwin’s Black Box

Take away


The baby out of Bethlehem

The Beatitudes out of the mountain

The Teacher out of Palestine

The Healer of the blind, crippled, and possessed

The Raiser of the dead

The Calmer of the storm

The Chastiser of pompous piety

The Confounder of interrogations

The Messiah on the cross

The empty tomb and resurrection

The Proclaimer in Judea

The Way of eternal life for all nations

The Revelation of the sword of the spirit—


The Kosmos, world system of men unlinks:


Stars shadowing and sunlight eclipsing

Glaciers melting into azure currents

Beasts mouthing pomp, bombast and blasphemies

Babylon mating with fetishes and wolfing blood

Plagues, starvation, missiles and infernos metastasizing

Unclean birds roosting in temples and mansions—


Until one Faithful and True


Returns to link heaven and earth once again.
