Proving the Existence of God

The fundamental question that must be asked regarding whether or not God exists, is what kind of evidence there is to validate such an assertion?

I have spent more than forty years seeking, examining, and documenting the evidence for God. It is my professional opinion as a researcher, and critical author, that the evidence for the existence of a singular, transcendent, unlimited Being, is substantial, empirical, and conclusive. Those who present an argument that there is no evidence for God are simply misinformed or willfully ignorant. It is impossible to maintain this position due to the massive amount of evidence that resides within the reach of any interested person. Continue reading “Proving the Existence of God”

The Ease Of Proving God Exists From Empirical Evidence

In the discussion of God’s existence, the evidence that proves this certainty is resident within a variety of sources. This brief article notes a short list of the hundreds that are available in order to make the most logical and empirical conclusions in the smallest space possible. Let us begin with a logical examination of the facts: Continue reading “The Ease Of Proving God Exists From Empirical Evidence”

Honest Men: An Expositional Treatise Of The Life, Death, And Resurrection Of Jesus

The events that took place during the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ are empirically validated by history. Today, any person can know for certain that the New Testament narrative regarding Jesus, is true, accurate, and honest. This book is a reasoned and intelligent examination of these events through the lens of history.

Many people are unaware that there are hundreds of non-biblical documents which describe Jesus of Nazareth as present in Jerusalem during the same period of history that the New Testament Gospels describe Him. These records from the Roman Senate, Jewish Talmud, and various other Greek sources, fully validate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, in cooperation with the Gospel narratives.

Jesus claimed that all of the events that took place during His appearance on earth were predicted in the pages of the Old Testament. Beginning with Moses, through the Prophets, and the Psalms, incredible and impossible predictions were made concerning the Messiah.

When Jesus was resurrected on the third day, He stood in the midst of His disciples and they were deeply troubled. They found it impossible to believe that the man standing there before them was really the same Jesus that they had seen crucified. In response, Jesus said to them:

“Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day.”

Then Jesus said to them:

“These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me”

And then Jesus “opened their understanding so that they could comprehend the Scriptures.”

What were these ancient scriptures that Jesus recounted to the disciples that proved that He had fulfilled all 400 of the Messianic Prophecies and was therefore the true Messiah?

They are the very same prophecies that are contained within this book. From the beginning of the Bible, through every page that predicted and described the Messiah, “Honest Men” recounts all the events that concern the coming of Jesus into the world.

“This book will take you through every part of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, in context with all the Old Testament scriptures. By the time that you finish this book, your knowledge and understanding for who Jesus really is and what He has accomplished for you, will be immensely magnified.” -M.L. Lladas

Forty-two years in the making, this is the singular publication that contains all of the important events of Jesus’ time here on earth and places you alongside Him as one of His disciples as He explains everything that He did.

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.

Thirteen Faces

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.”

Does God Choose Some To Be Saved And Others To Be Lost?

COPYRIGHT WARNING

I Knew You

The Bible describes God as knowing all things from eternity.

“Known to God from eternity are all His works. Acts 15:18

Imagine that you have existed forever and there is nothing that you do not know. Would you create a race of beings that you knew ahead of time, would rebel against you and necessitate the death of your Son to save them?

Before God created the universe, He determined that Jesus would die for the sins of the world. Jesus is called; “The Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world.”

(Jesus) the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Revelation 13:8

This means that before God created us, He already knew that we would all be separated from Him by our sins. He sent His Son into the world to be the one method by which He could save us all.

Because the Lord knew what would happen in advance, He was aware of those who would believe His command to receive Jesus and be saved. Based upon this advanced knowledge, God “chose” these individuals and predestined them to eternal life. Continue reading “Does God Choose Some To Be Saved And Others To Be Lost?”

I.S.I.S Comes to Steal, Kill, and Destroy: The Reason and Source of Terrorism

COPYRIGHT WARNING

ISIS

In this article we will examine the true source of terrorism in the world today and who is really orchestrating the reign of death and chaos that has plagued our planet.

The Bible distinguishes the events of the last days from all other periods of human history. During this time, one group of people will bring the world to its knees by its reign of terror. Today, the greatest threat to peace in the world is the radical Islamic Terrorists of ISIS/ISIL.

The Bible reveals that the true leader of this mass horde of murderers is satan. If we compare the list of activities that the people of ISIS carry out all over the earth, their mission and manifesto are precisely the same as satan.

The devil has one mission on the earth: to seek out and destroy as many human lives as possible. Jesus said that those who murder and create terror on the earth are the son’s and daughters of the devil. The true family of God are those who pursue peace and seek to love people. We see this illustrated in the words of Jesus as He confronts the religious leaders of Israel. These men claimed that their religion ensured that they were the true followers of God.
