10 Einstein Quotes Linked to Biblical Principles

Mark Virkler's picture

To my knowledge, Albert Einstein was not a Christian but let’s not forget that God granted revelation to Pharaoh and Nebuchadnezzar as well. I greatly respect Einstein because I see him releasing God's creativity in the marketplace. He offered divine solutions to solve mankind’s problems. As Christians, is that not what we all hunger to do?

So how did Einstein do this? Let’s explore some of Einstein’s famous quotes and note how they honored biblical principles. That, I believe, is why he was able to release the creativity of God to a needy world.

You might want to print out the chart below and paste it on a mirror to review daily until you are living in these biblical principles. Truth is most valuable when you are living it!


 

 

The Biblical Principle

Einstein Quote

Scriptural Support

1

Walk by
the Spirit
 

 

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

Out of your innermost being shall flow (Jn. 7:37-39). Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life (Prov. 4:23). Live by the Spirit (Gal. 5:25).

2 Passionately
desire God’s revelation
I want to know God’s thoughts. The rest are details. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts (Isa. 55:8-11).

3

Creativity 
comes from
the Spirit 

I never made one of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking.

The Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing… As I hear, I judge (Jn. 5:19,20,30).

4

God's visions inflame faith

“Imagination is more important than Knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. Imagination is everything”.

Look toward the heavens, and count the stars, if you are able to count them. And He said to him, "So shall your descendants be." Then he believed in the LORD (Gen 15:5,6; 12:1,2).

5

Have an attitude of gratitude

 

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

 

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thess. 5:16-19).

6

Focus intently until you experience it

It's not that I'm so smart; it's just that I stay with problems longer.

One who looks intently at the perfect law…not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed… (Jas. 1:25).

7 True knowledge
is experiential!
Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience. If these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge... (2 Pet. 1:8).

8

Serve others
with your gifts

Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.

As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God (1 Pet. 4:10).

9

Multiply talents

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Also the one who had received the two talents came up and said, "Master, you entrusted two talents to me. See, I have gained two more talents"  (Matt. 25:14-30).

10

Walk on
 water!

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.

But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!" (Matt. 14:30)

Great post! Did you know that it was a believer who invented the CD, and refused to take more than $50,000 for it when a company was prepared to offer him millions! He died a poor man with brat ideas...

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Act Now: 

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
