Some afternoon when you have nothing else to do, try this. Hold a ball at arm’s length and let go. Chances are very good that it will fall to the floor. Ask your mom or dad if the same thing happened when they were juniors. Check with your grandparents too. Some people say, «The Bible is old-fashioned. We don’t have to obey those old laws spoken by Moses—the Ten Commandments. They applied to people a long time ago, not to us.» When you hear such statements, tell them, «Go drop a ball.
” You see, what makes that ball fall is something called gravity. Legend claims that one day a falling apple thumped Sir Isaac Newton on the head. Hey, there must be a force that drove that apple from that tree down onto my cranium, he thought. So, he did some studying, talked to a few other scientists, walked around with his hands clasped behind his back, and came up with some-thing he called «the law of gravity.» Newton didn’t create it. He just named it.
Fact is, gravity has been around for a long time. Astronomers report that it’s been controlling the movements of stars for billions of years. Newton just wrote it down. The Ten Commandments aren’t Moses’ laws either. Like gravity, they’re laws of God. Moses just put them in writing. So if it’s true that God’s laws get old, that they don’t apply to us, then the law of gravity, being so old, must be really out of (late, Surely It doesn’t apply anymore. Well, there’s a way to find out. Go drop a ball. Or try walking on the ceiling
