Why Many People Find No Evidence For The Existence Of God

COPYRIGHT WARNING

If God exists, and the evidence of His Being is so clear, why do some people find it impossible to see this evidence and believe?

One of the first principles of God is that He only reveals Himself to those who genuinely want to know Him. He does not make Himself known to the scoffer, or those who really have no desire to seek Him. The atheist frequently asserts that there is no evidence for God, when the reality is that there is overwhelming evidence, but it cannot be seen by those who do not want to find it.

Have you ever looked at one of those pictures that claims to have many faces of different people, but they cannot be seen by most people at first glance? Only those who really try to see, can see. The casual observer, and those who really don’t care to see, cannot see.

There are 13 faces in this picture, can you see them all? Continue reading “Why Many People Find No Evidence For The Existence Of God”

The Secular Record of History, Proves That Jesus Rose From The Dead

COPYRIGHT WARNING

If you are a Christian, you were born extremely rich. The day that you first trusted in Jesus as your Savior, you began a new life as the son or daughter of the Greatest King who has ever lived. Possessing great riches is not enough to live a truly satisfying and purposeful life. We must also gain knowledge and wisdom; to know how to live. In order to fully understand the riches that are ours, we must read the bankbook and discover what God has deposited into our account because of what Jesus has accomplished for us.[1]

Many years ago, one of the world’s richest men, discovered a list of priceless items that he wanted for his collection. He dispatched his trusted employee to travel the world until he found these items and bring them back to his home. After a long and exhausting search, the items were discovered—all in the same location. The employee returned to his boss and reported: “Everyone of these treasures that you were seeking, are already yours. They have been in your warehouse for quite some time.”

In Christ, everything that we are searching for in our life, is already ours…

One of the many treasures that we possess, is the certain knowledge of God’s power and ability to order and bless our lives. There is no greater place to learn about the Lord’s capacity to direct our lives, than seeing this capability demonstrated by the fulfillment of His prophetic word. Many people misunderstand the purpose of these prophecies of the Bible as an attempt to predict the future. This was not the intended purpose of God’s prophetic word. The Lord was desiring that every person might know Him and be able to trust in what He has promised us. How better to prove this ability than to speak about things that are yet to come; and fulfill His word, with extreme precision.

The Singularity of God: His Existence and Being

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Orion_Nebula_-_Hubble_2006_mosaic_18000The argument that there is no proof for the existence of God is irrational. In fact, there is no reasonable explanation for the universe or life itself, apart from God. The question that has been rightly asked is: “Why is there a universe at all?”

Since everything that exists has an explanation for its existence, there must also be a reason that the universe exists. Since all things that are temporal have a first cause and the universe came into being at some point, then the universe has a first cause. Since it is impossible for anything to cause itself, therefore, the universe is caused by a power that is transcendent of time and space. By the complexity, balance, and design of the universe, we perceive that all things in existence were caused by an infinite intelligence—an intelligence which is without limits and is perfect, knowing all things. Only a perfect and eternal being would have the capacity to create such a universe. I personally do not understand why it is so hard for people to accept that God exists and that He is the most logical explanation for the existence of the universe.

There are two types of things that exist.

Things that exist by necessity.
Things which are caused.

Mathematics exists by necessity. They are not caused to exist by anything else; they exist by their own by necessity.

The universe does not need to exist, it exists because it was caused. Nothing comes into existence apart from intelligence, therefore; God is the most logical cause of the universe, since it would require an infinite intelligence.

A Being which is eternal, such as God, does not require a cause.

The error of evolution is that it cannot explain how life began in the first place.[1] Life was also, not necessary, it was caused. Since Human intelligence requires an equal or greater intelligence to bring us into being, the logical explanation is also God.

Could we imagine that the microprocessors that enable today’s computers to function, came about by random mutations or chance arrangements of atoms? How much more difficult would it be to evolve a human mind, which is exponentially greater in complexity to any microprocessor or sophisticated computer code?

How did God make the universe?

In the beginning there was nothing. The universe did not exist. There were no planets, no stars, not even empty space. Imagine all the matter that makes up the universe, tightly compressed into a particle that is nearly invisible. Scientists believe that it was from this tiny, densely compressed speck of material, that everything that we see today, originated.[2]

At zero linear time, this speck of material exploded and expanded at hundreds of millions of miles per hour. This was an incomprehensible sphere of energy that was dense and compact beyond imagination. The temperature of the initial flash of energy was trillions of degrees. It was a mass of pure plasma expanding at the Speed of Light.[3]

Everything that would exist in our present universe would come from this initial material; the planets, the stars, every living thing; even time and space itself—all things were created at that moment. Continue reading “The Singularity of God: His Existence and Being”

Jesus: He is the Most Interesting Man in the World

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Jesus InterestingA Unique Life

There is one man who is so distinct amongst all other men who have lived upon the earth, that He is worthy of careful examination. Many people have great difficulty with the Christian church and organized religion–and so they should. The religions of men are frequently a catastrophe of errors and diversely opposite from who Jesus is and what He represents.

Jesus is not a religion, He is not a church. He claimed to be God, living within the flesh of a man, and the only Savior of the world. Either He is a liar, a man delusional, or He was telling the truth. It is our responsibility to examine the evidence for His life and determine if He is who He claimed to be.

Jesus never commanded men to join a particular church or religion, He said “Follow Me.”

Why I Do Not Post Comments on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, or MSNBC News Sites

COPYRIGHT WARNING

You Can't Say That

In the United States, the right of free speech is protected by the first amendment to the Constitution. This is, of course, unless you are a Christian. Try to post a Christian perspective on ABC News, CBS News, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, and other news agencies and see what happens.

Over the past several years, I have attempted to post a Biblical/Christian perspective on the online news organizations and every one was deleted, except Fox News. I made my comments in a respectful, intellectual, and informative manner. I did not disparage any other religion, person, or company. I simply answered the way that someone who believes in God would answer. I was told that my comments did not meet the requirements set by the particular news company. The reason: It was a comment by an Evangelical Christian.

I have several web sites and I often receive very disturbing and controversial replies to the articles that I post. I never delete any comment. I give my readers the freedom to express themselves in any way that they want, without censure or deletion. It is my opinion that allowing everyone to say what they want to say, gives us a wider view of the mindset of a greater number of people.

Who Created God?

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Who Created God?The Atheists asks the question, “Who created God?,” assuming that His existence necessitated a cause.

This is a fundamental error that atheists make in their inability to perceive God. They imagine that God must be created. Those who do believe in God, do not believe in a God who came into existence at some point in time. In this manner, Christians also do not believe in the kind of God that the atheists do not believe in.

The fallacy of insisting that God must have a creator Himself, runs an illogical circle of never-ending god’s who were each made by a god before them. In order for one who is truly God to exist, He must be singular and uncreated.

Let us consider this premise: The term “God,” is defined as a Being who is perfect in every regard. Any being who is not perfect would not be God, with a big “G,” he would simply be one god amongst many god’s, little “g.”

Since there can only be one God (big G), this first premise requires that He must be perfect in every regard, incapable of error or wrongful actions. If God were able to commit error, He would not be perfect, and therefore he could not be God. Continue reading “Who Created God?”

The Bible Has Told The Truth Regarding The Nature Of Man

COPYRIGHT WARNING

As we consider the theory of evolution, we must ask the question: has man adapted to his environment, and evolved in regards to his treatment of other human beings?

If we examine the entire history of the human species, we discover that people today are no kinder and gentler towards other human beings than they were at any other time in human history. In fact, the cruelty and evil of human activity has grown markedly worse.

If man in in fact, evolving, should there not be some indication of this evolutionary process in his social behavior. What we observe is a species who is the most cruel, and vicious, amongst all the creatures of earth. Continue reading “The Bible Has Told The Truth Regarding The Nature Of Man”

The Gay Marriage Argument Based Upon Disputed Bible Verses

Those who view gay marriage as a right, often misuse Bible verses for their assertions. The basis for their argument is that certain strange moral behaviors are endorsed by God and the Bible, therefore, no Christian should have any problem with gay marriage.

The following chart illustrates the lack of knowledge that many atheists, critics of the Bible and the LGBT community have, regarding what the Bible teaches:[1]

The Atheist’s Inability To Comprehend God

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Those Who Deny God, Cannot Understand Him

A human being is made up of three components; body, soul, and Spirit. When a person is born, the body is preeminent, it rules the life of the person. Whatever the body wants, it expresses through the desires of the flesh. The soul is the inhabitation of the emotions, where a person expresses their thoughts, feelings and emotions. The spirit, which is the only part of man that can know and understand God, is dead because of sin.[1]

When Jesus told Nicodemus, in John chapter 3, that “you must be “born again,” He was describing the spirit. In order for any person to understand God, or to comprehend His word, first his spirit must be born again, into a new relationship with God. Until our sins are dealt with and removed by God, it is impossible for us to have a relationship with God.[2]

Jesus death on the cross, paid for the sins of all people, for all time. All those who are willing to repent from their sins and come to Jesus for the forgiveness of their sins, are born again—into this new spiritual life.[3]

This is one of the preeminent differences between Biblical Christianity and religion. The religions of man ignore the spiritual side of man, regarding sin, repentance and the need to experience a new life in the spirit. Man’s religion requires conformance into a set of rules or conduct. The Bible reveals that there are no rules that any person can keep that will make them acceptable to God. It is by a reliance upon what Jesus has accomplish that God will accept any person.[4]

To those who do not know God, who have yet to experience this new birth of the spirit, these things are difficult to comprehend. Some even scoff at this possibility and find it impossible to believe. Nevertheless, this is what the text of the New Testament reveals. Continue reading “The Atheist’s Inability To Comprehend God”

Pretending That God Does Not Exist In Order To Live Any Way You Choose

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Over the course of 40 years, I have heard just about every excuse for why a person will not receive Jesus as their Savior. In all of the reasons that people give for their unwillingness, they all boil down to one source: A desire to live a certain life that they have chosen, without the interference of religion.

There are many who claim that there is no proof for the existence of God. This is perhaps the most preposterous excuse, considering the massive evidence that is available today to prove that God must exist. In these cases, those who make such assertions, do so from willing ignorance. While asserting that no proof exists for God, under investigation, we find that these persons have not done the necessary work themselves to determine whether or not God actually does exist. In an overwhelming majority, most people who make such claims, use the comments and quotes of other atheists, not their own personal research.

I have not met a single atheists who has taken an academic approach to their atheism by sincerely exploring all the facts which empirically prove that God must exist. The arguments that are frequently given are at best; insufficient, at worst; only taken from the words of other atheists. If you listen to persons who are incorrect in their hypothesis or conclusions, then your hypothesis and conclusions will also be incorrect.
