For the past few years, I have been studying the interesting world of ‘PHI’. You might ask, why are you interested in a Greek letter? It is the same spelling, but this ‘Phi’ was selected by historians to describe the dimensional ratio of 1.62, found in much of nature.
Many books and articles have been published on this ‘super natural’ number known a ‘The Golden Ratio’ or ‘Phi’. The reason this can be so fascinating is that once you become aware of it, you may be able ‘see God’ in a new way everyday…..in ways you haven’t realized before. This is why I have begun to refer to Phi as ‘God’s Ratio’. If God is the Chief Designer of all (and this writer believes He is), then it should become obvious to readers and ‘seekers’, that He employed the numerical dimensions of Phi, in His overall architecture of the world.
Most of us have ‘seen God’ in nature, ie, beautiful mountains, spectacular sun sets, and wildlife. However, if you were able to look at these a little closer, with the help of Phi, you may be able to see God in nature with more clarity, opening up a whole new world, that has been before you all along. It might be like going to the eye doctor, and coming away with a new prescription for contacts or glasses, thus, allowing you to see things more clearly. This might sound odd at this point, if this is the first time you’ve heard about Phi in nature. But, let’s look closer.
There are two separate Scripture passages, among many others, that can help validate the use of ‘God’s Ratio’, in seeing God:
1, 1 Cor. 13:12 (seeing dimly now, but able to see more clearly later); and,
2. Rom. 1:20 (describing how God can be plainly seen, in what He has made)
Hopefully, this short blog may spur you to a greater knowledge and application of ‘God’s Ratio’, helping you and others to become more aware of the constant dimension of 1.62 within the design within living nature around us. If you’re like me, you can’t help but conclude that there is a Master Designer….. and His name is God Almighty.
See below, for links to a partial list of current publications on this incredible truth of Phi in God’s design. We hope your faith is deepened with further study, and give you an added passion and method to share your faith in God with others.
