The wisdom of Solomon

(You may wish to watch this in Full Screen and turn up your speakers--it is impressive)

"For all men who were ignorant of God were foolish by nature; 
and they were unable from the good things that are seen
 to know him who exists, 
nor did they recognize the craftsman
while paying heed to his works; 
but they supposed that either fire or
wind or swift air, 
or the sircle of the stars, or turbulent water,
or the luminaries of heaven were the
gods that rule the world.


If through delight in the beauty of these things
men assumed them to be gods,
let them know how much better 
than these is their Lord,
for the author of beauty created them.


And if men were amazed at their
power and working, 
let them perceive from them
how much more powerful is he who 
formed them.


For from the greatness and beauty 
of created things
comes a corresponding perception of
their Creator.


Yet these men are little to be blamed, 
for perhaps they go astray
while seeking God and desiring to find him.
For as they live among his works
they keep searching.
and they trust in what they see.
because the things that are seen
are beautiful."


Wisdom of Solomon, 13:1-7
