How did God create this fierce Ball of Fire from the darkest and coldest stuff in the universe - molecular clouds?
The Bible does not exactly tell how - it tells who did it: the God of Israel, the only real God there is.
In order to understand how, we are allowed and have to study the open Book of Nature. Admittedly it is not exactly an easy Book to read. Some people spend their entire life studying such matters as how stars are born.
Jesus Christ puts the Theology of the Sun nicely into perspective and spices it with a powerful ethical point to all humanity benefiting from this star of God:
But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you and persecute you, that ye may be the children of your Father who is in Heaven. For He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Matthew 5:44-45 KJ21
Double-note the expression "His sun".
Indeed, it is His!
Confession of a student
In these posts on Sun I write just some little notes on what I have learned about the subject as a layman. I confess that I am lacking the fundamental academic training in mathematics, astronomy, physics, chemistry, nuclear physics and other fields of research that would enable me to understand deeply and to evaluate critically various modern theories by myself.
The study of the Sun is a fascinating field of science and I am eager to learn more about His master work.
It is an international subject concerning the entire humanity and let me remind, that not all of the scientists come from the Biblical Judea-Christian background and that not all believe that the personal God of Israel exists. What unites all true scientists is the love for truth.
