A Nobel Prize Winner Turns Back to Christ

7 12 2014

curie Marie and Pierre Curie (cue-REE) were two of the most brilliant scientific minds in the world during in the early modern period. In 1903, they received the Nobel Prize in physics for their groundbreaking work on radioactivity. In 1906, Pierre died tragically in a street accident. Marie was wild with grief. Every day she wrote in her diary a message to her departed husband. One day she wrote:

Your coffin was closed and I could see you no more. They came to get you, a sad company.We saw you go down into the deep hole. Then the dreadful procession of people that wanted to take us away. Jack and I resisted. We wanted to see everything to the end.

They filled the grace and put flowers on it. Everything is over. Pierre is sleeping in his last sleep beneath the earth. It is the end of everything, everything, everything!

No, science, as such, does not have the answer. The answer must come from the other side, God’s side. It comes from the life and lips of the Man of Galilee. Into the darkness of death He brings light. Into the midst of our doubts He comes with His voice of promise: “I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.

We have greater wisdom than the science of this world can give. Christ has revealed it to us. Only Christians know for sure what comes after death.
