I’m so glad our faith is not dependant upon scientific fact, but upon a God who reveals Himself. Science, no matter how complimentary it is of our faith, is not meant to prove our faith, or be the basis of our faith. However, it can most definitely confirm our faith. There are many great resources and youtube videos that explain the science behind ‘entan-glement’ or ‘non-locality’ in detail. This is not the purpose of this essay. Following is a very basic explanation of it: If two electrons that originate from the same source, are entangled one of these electrons can be sent to the other side of the universe, but somehow they will still be connected! Do something to one, and the other electron responds instantly. This has already been proved experimentally over distances of more than 100KM.

We know of nothing that travels faster than light, yet there is proof of a dimension that connects objectswithout any restraint in space or time. One scientist described it as follows: Gisin speculates that some “influence” may be affecting both experiments coming from “outside space and time.” Gisin says he means by this that“there is no story in space and time” to account for non-locality. In reality these electrons are still entangled … or connected. Everything has a common origin and so, in reality everything is still connected … is still touching!

Another strange fact of this sub-atomic world, is that even the act of observation changes the state of what is being observed. So what does all of this have to do with the resurrection of Christ Jesus? Well, Adam, the crown of creation, through one act of disobedience, entangled all of reality into a downwards spiral of decay and corruption. (Rom8:20) The only One who knew the original parameters and state of all creation is the Originator, the Creator. In Christ Jesus, God becomes entangled and intimately connected with His creation. He is absolutely consistent … the decay and the affect of the fall does not change Him … He changes it! His incarnation, His entanglement with our reality, is the beginning of the “reconciliation of all things” as Paul words it in Col 1:20.Paul describes the extent of Christ’s entanglementwith creation as follows: “ He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.” Col 1:15-17

But the explosive event of the resurrection is where the true power of this entanglement, this connection with creation, becomes most visible. This is the birth of the new creation. This is where God manifests Himself in such clarity and purity, with the affect that everything connected with Him, immediately changes state and direction. As Adam entangled all of creation in a downward spiral of decay, the resurrection of Christ entangled all of creation. He changed the direction and of “the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end.” Is 9:7

What is our contribution to this new creation? Well, long before we knew that observation changes things, the scriptures said: “… we continue to behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image.” 2 Cor 3:18

What we perceive, changes what is seen.
