Christian radio host Bryan Fischer said on Friday that Jesus Christ is actually the supreme force in the universe, the power that is “keeping the universe from flying apart into fragments.”
The Friendly Atheist blog at Patheos.com reported that the remarks echo statements Fischer made in 2013 in which he said that Jesus is what holds atoms together and keeps electrons whirling around an atoms nucleus.
“What’s keeping the universe together right now?” said Fischer on Friday. “It’s Jesus Christ.”
Fischer then began to read from the Bible’s book of Hebrews, “He upholds the universe by the word of his power,” and added, “So what’s keeping the universe from flying apart into fragments?”
“There is some magic force” in the physics of atoms and planetary bodies, he said. “Scientists don’t even know what it is, it’s called the strong force because it keeps the nuclei together. They don’t know what it is.”
“But we know who it is,” he continued. “Jesus Christ is the strong force that holds the universe by the word of his power.”
