No subject matter better reflects the glory of God than mathematics. To study mathematics is to study God’s thoughts after Him, for he is the greatest Engineer and Architect of the universe.
Unlike the “modern math” theorists, who believe that mathematics is a creation of man and thus arbitrary and relative, we believe that the laws of mathematics are a creation of God and thus absolute. All of the laws of mathematics are God’s laws. Our knowledge of God’s absolute mathematical laws may be incomplete or at times in error, but that merely shows human frailty, not relative in mathematics. Man’s task is to search out and make use of the laws of the universe, both scientific and mathematical.
