Is There A God?
by David J. Stewart
Is there a God? Was the universe created by a Divine Creator, or did it just happen? If the universe just happened, then what started the process? The laws of thermodynamics have PROVEN that neither energy nor matter can be destroyed. You can convert one form into another, but you cannot create nor destroy either. Based upon this scientific FACT, it is perplexing to try to understand the origin of the universe. How could something come from nothing?
Even more complex and disturbing is the thought that time could have NO BEGINNING. Everything that mankind has ever learned, tested, proved, designed, or theorized CANNOT explain this great mystery. How could time have ever begun? What would have existed before time? Even if you could trace the universe back trillions of years (which you cannot), you would still be faced with an unsolvable mystery...what existed before time? If time is traveling backwards and forwards, then at what point did it begin? There is no mortal answer for these questions.
Another baffling thought is the size of the universe...how big is it? Can the universe have an end? If so, then what exists beyond the universe?...more universe? Trying to understand such a mystery is a perplexing and mind-numbing exercise in futility. It would be IMPOSSIBLE for the universe to have a boundary, a limit. What would exist beyond that limit? Even empty space is something, it occupies SPACE. So where does the space end? At what point is there nothing, and what exactly is nothing if it takes up space? There is NO humanly plausible answer. Though multitudes of godless "experts" and "professors" have arrogantly tried to explain such mysteries by teaching babble and false science, the net sum of all their answers is utter foolishness. The ONLY logical answer is a Divine Creator.
Not only does simple logic testify to the existence of God, but so also does the Bible. The Bible is self-proclaimed as God's Word (2nd Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12). Whether a person wants to acknowledge the Bible as "God's Word" is an entirely different matter, but the Bible does claim to be God's Authorative Word. One might reason that there are several "other" such books in the world that also CLAIM to be inspired by a divine being, what makes the Bible so special? In a word, it's CONTENTS. No other book in this world addresses mankind's wicked sinfulness and need for divine redemption. Only the Bible tells us how to obtain forgiveness, salvation and peace with God. No other book in this world speaks of God's love for mankind, and of God's fierce judgment upon the ungodly. No other book in the world contains as much accurate prophecy (and fulfilled prophecy) as does the Bible (there is NO prophecy in the Quran). No other book in the world can boast of such continuity of agreement between over forty known writers (God being the Divine Author), spanned over two millenniums of time and yet arranged in one perfectly interwoven volume.
The Bible gives us a detailed explanation of the creation of the universe, and teaches that the universe was created by the Word of God...
"Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." -Hebrews 11:3
There is your answer friend, God created the universe out of NOTHING! God did the impossible as ONLY God can do. What other book in this world claims that God created the worlds out of nothing? Could such a book be mere coincidence when it so perfectly answers all of the perplexing questions I presented to you earlier? The Bible is undoubtedly the Word of God that it claims to be. No other book even compares.
Jesus Christ is the Creator (God Almighty)...
"Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist." -Colossians 1:13-17
We read in Hebrews 11:3 above that "Through FAITH we understand..." It is ONLY through faith in the Word of God that anyone will ever understand the truth about creation. The atheists and evolutionists do NOT have faith in God or the Bible; rather, they have placed their faith in unproven theories, speculation, and false science. The great error of their thinking is the failure to concede that THERE IS NO LOGICAL ANSWER OTHER THAN A DIVINE CREATOR. Evolution cannot be proved because it is a dirty lie of the devil. Evolution is false. Evolution is stupid. Evolution is baseless speculation. The ONLY plausible answer is God. The Bible confirms what our common sense should teach us about the origin of the universe...creation couldn't have happened without a Divine Creator. The proof is irrefutable, God exists!
Now let me ask you a question friend, do you know for sure if you died today that you would go to heaven? You can know for sure. The Bible teaches that the ONLY way to heaven is by becoming "born again." If you'd like to know for sure that you are going to heaven, then click on the link below.
