Lauren Green wrote Lighthouse Faith to show just how much the laws of God permeates everything around us and that He is actually hiding in plain sight. She says that God is so big and so small at the same time that He’s easily overlooked.

Green interviewed Michio Kaku, a physicist and rock star in the science world. His theory is that all buildings are held up by the Pythagorean theorem which states that, given a right triangle with sides a, b and c, where c represents the hypotenuse (or longest side), the sum of the square of the two sides (a squared plus b squared) is always equal to c squared.


If Kaku’s assessment of the Pythagorean theorem is correct, then the right angle (four of which form a cross of perpendicular lines) is literally holding up every building and structure. Cathedrals, cottages, towers and temples are all held up by the mathematical relationship expressed in the Pythagorean formula. It’s there holding it in place even though there’s no visible right angle. Green believes that this mathematical fact governs architecture and is tied to the fundamental symbol of Christianity: the cross.

This lends acknowledgement to The God Particle, authored by Leon Lederman whose premise is: ‘just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there’.

“Just because you don’t see it
doesn’t mean it’s not there.”

With eloquence, Green asserts, “Every time I look at buildings and structures today, I see crosses everywhere; in window frames, scaffolding, crown molding, even a telephone pole. Either the cross is implied, as it is in a door or window frame, or it is explicit, as in the trusses of a suspension bridge.”

She continues, “Every synagogue, every mosque, office tower, cabin, house, shack, shelf, table, bed, or chair is being held up by the cross.” It is this natural law that architects must abide by so that structures do not crumble and fall.

Even nature abides by certain mathematical principles. Trees growing up from the ground also adhere to Pythagoras’s equation. Their roots must be deep enough to counter balance the angle by which the trunk and branches stretch up and out.

Newsboys, the rock band resonates in song …

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
The Savior has come with the morning light
The cross has the final word
