* If you’re here because of the hoax rumor…our conclusion is that it hasn’t been proven. We’ll include the Snopes link; but even that article is quite similar to this one with some “worldly” (what we deem to be) conclusions. It’s amazing, if the Body of Christ finds something…somebody will stay up all night to try to disprove it or put a spin on it. Walk by faith. That’s our opinion and we’re sticking to it. Snopes usually tags their Commentary True or False or both if that makes sense…and this has none of the above. Here’s the link: Snopes Rumor
Laminin – The glue that holds us together
“Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every animal tissue.” (From Wikipedia)
You see… laminins are what hold us together… literally. They are cell adhesion molecules. They are what hold one cell of our bodies to the next cell. Without them, we would literally fall apart.
Here is what the structure of laminin looks like… and this is not a “Christian portrayal” of it… if you look up laminin in any scientific/medical piece of literature; this is what you will see… (For more images and detail, click on any picture in this link: http://photobucket.com/images/laminin/ )
The glue that holds us together… all of us… is in the shape of the cross. Immediately this scripture comes to mind.
“He is the image of the invisible God,
the Firstborn over all creation.
For by Him all things were created;
things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible,
whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities;
all things were created by Him and for Him.
He is before all things,
and in Him all things hold together.”
Colossians 1:15-17 (NIV)
This is very, very cool. Thousands of years before the world knew anything about laminin, Paul penned those words. And now we see that from a very literal standpoint, we are held together… one cell to another… by the cross. Now tell me that our God isn’t the coolest!!! Amazing…
You could never in a quadrillion years convince me that this is anything other than the mark of our Creator who knew exactly what “laminin glue” would look like long before Adam even breathed his first breath!
