Here are the two major laws of thermodynamics. Countless experiments have always found them to be true. That is why they can be called laws of nature:

The First Law makes it clear that energy must have been created by an agency or power outside of the natural universe. The creationist knows this agency or power to be the God of the Bible.

The Second Law tells us that the energy in the universe available for useful work has always been decreasing and that soon after the universe began, it was more organized and complex that it is today. Another way to say this is that the universe is always increasing in entropy. This law speaks loudly against the idea of a big bang in the beginning.

The two graphs below illustrate how the concepts of evolution and creation diverge regarding order over time in the universe:

The upper graph is a figment of the imaginations of men. The lower one represents reality.

Next take a look at a graph showing the First and Second laws together with regard to energy availability. A proper understanding of these laws informs us that evolution and the big bang are false ideas outside of true science.

The Laws of Thermodynamics are certainly relevant to the Christian and a study of the
Bible verses below will provide a certain appreciation of that fact. They are great evidences for the Engineer of the universe, Jesus Christ!
