Chance Is Nothing

“Chance does not cause anything to happen because it has no power to do anything. It has no power to do anything because chance itself is not a thing that exercises power or force. It is not a thing; it has no being. And since it has no being, it can exert no force. Chance is a word, not a power. For something to exercise force it must have being or it can have no force. It is still an axiom of both philosophy and science that ex nihilo, nihil fit, out of nothing, nothing comes. Nothing cannot do something. Since chance is nothing, it cannot do anything. ”  R.C. Sproul “The Invisible Hand” p. 156

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
