A Providential View of Science & History.
Johannes Kepler: Giant of Faith & Science
His Personal Creed
I believe . . . that the World of Nature, the World of Man, the World of God – all three fit together. We see how God, like a human architect approached the founding of the world according to order and rule and measured everything in such a manner.
I believe . . . that together with the Holy Scriptures came the book of Nature. Should the kind Creator who brought forth nature out of nothing deprive the spirit of man . . . of every heavenly delight. I had the intention of becoming a theologian . . . but now I see how God is, by my endeavors, also glorified in astronomy for the heavens declare the glory of God.
I believe . . . that our Creator has given us a spirit in addition to the senses, for another reason than merely to provide living for ourselves . . . Mans soul is something quite different from the others part of man, and the soul is kept alive, enriched and grows by that food called knowledge. I am eager to publish my observations in Gods honor who wishes to be recognized from the book of Nature. I am a Christian.
I believe . . . only and alone in the service of Jesus Christ . . . in Him is all refuge and solace.
