Do you question if there is a God? Do you think science is the answer? Are you fixed on atheist and scientific explanations or just curious about our existence?
In the beginning, you might say, there was science. Logical right? Because space revolves around science. But what if I asked you to take your mind back to how space came about? Would you be able to explain it through the laws of science? Was there a “big bang” before the “big bang?” Let’s say there was, then how did the first big bang begin? The point I’m trying to make is, for science to be an explanation for existence, there has to be a start to it, I’m sure the laws of science didn’t create itself.
God, the creator of Science
People tend to think that christians don’t believe in Science, but it’s not true, the fact is God created science and it’s just a small part of his intellectual influence. In order to explain our existence, we have to stop relying on hypothesis’ that don’t include a higher influence. Just think about us for example, I can’t look at a grown man and say he created himself, there is no such thing as a mother or father, that would be bizarre, anyone would tell you, your crazy, the man cannot make himself out of thin air. So why is our existence any different? The truth is, it isn’t. We are so baffled at how we came to be here, scientists have spent years and years just trying to find the answer and it’s staring everyone in the face. There are things that are unexplainable like our anatomy, our design and structure, for example the human eye is not replicable. It’s that complex and infinitely put together, each microscopic part fitting effortlessly together like clockwork, it seems impossible to presume it came out of a big bang? The position of our planet is actually a perfect distance from the sun, if it was any closer to the sun we would burn to death, and further away and we would freeze to death. Doesn’t this suggest another influence much more greater and powerful than us to place everything so perfectly? This is too much of a coincidence, that the word was created by a nameless explosion and then something else happened, then boom, we just turned up here. I’m quite a logical person and it just doesnt add up. The bible says, “Seek and you will find” Matthew 7:7, this explains mans curiosity to find God. If you really are looking for the answer, you will find it in Jesus Christ. Ask him if he exists if you have doubts he will answer, you will find salvation. You have nothing to lose.
What does the Bible Say?
People tend to think the Bible is just a collection of made up stories told to children at Sunday school right? Well that’s where you couldn’t be more wrong. (Also known as Gods word) the bible is a completely factual and historical book, recording real events that happened thousands of years ago and not to mention things that are happening now and things to come in the future. The bible is so relevant to todays world it’s scary, another thing people seem to misunderstand. You might say, the bible is just an old book written by some guy that thought God was real. Well that’s also wrong, the bible was written by holy men of God, that had an unbreakable and deep relationship with him, but it had the full and undivided influence of God. God used his people to write the Bible, however, that doesn’t take away from the fact that it is his words, written in spirit and truth.
How the bible relates to todays world
Do you notice the way society lives today? Do you recognise earthquakes and weather changes, more frequent wars and rumours of them and the love of self/vanity and money being rammed into people’s mind through the media? Well we do too. The bible says in 2 Timothy 3:2 “For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revelers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful…”We live in a world where we have to look good, we have to have money, as many parties as possible ect. We see this in the new generation all the time. Times are getting more reckless, and God knew this would happen so he warned us in the bible through the above verse (and others). Matthew 24:7 says “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” There have been more issues with the worldwide weather and it’s getting worse, not to mention the constant headlines about wars that are happening and rumours of them. So what does this mean? All these things are signs that God is desperately trying to warn us about. These sign indicate the “last days” or times of the world. God is coming back to earth, but not before these things shall pass (also in the bible). We need to take notice of these warnings and listen to Gods voice. Now is the time to cling closer to him, before the day of judgment comes, because it is coming, and it is inevitable. In Many of these last time world events, Israel, Jesus’ earthly home will be the centre of the action, so keep a lookout for events/wars happening here! (Already taking place!)
Over to you…
You might think, I’m already a good person, I would go to heaven anyway or even if God is real, what’s it to me? First, we need to understand the importance of sin and how we can recognise it, however big or small in our daily lives because all sin is unacceptable to God. Here’s a few questions that will help you to think about this deeper, answer these in your mind. Have you ever told a lie? What do you call someone who lies?Have you ever stole something in your life? What do you call someone who steals? Have you ever looked at a girl or guy in a sexual way? This is called being lustful. Have you ever called the God’s name in vain? This is called blasphemy. Now all of these are sins that God cannot accept into heaven. So by your own judgement here, if you have answered any of these as yes, you have sinned against God. We are ALL sinners and we ALL make mistakes even as christians, but the difference is we accept Jesus Christ as our lord and embrace the fact that he died for our sins, so we didn’t have to go to hell and suffer for eternity. Jesus loves us and cares about where we will spend our eternity, wether it be heaven or hell and he wants us to make it to heaven. You have the proof that he’s real, if your still not convinced, just ask him to reveal himself to you, go on! You have nothing to lose and I guarantee you will not be disappointed! God is real and he is coming back to judge the world so I want you to be ready for this. If you are not sure about how to start, comment on this page and ask for help, I will be more than happy to help you through this, you are not alone. It’s now up to you to decide where you will spend eternity.
