Is There A God?
by David J. Stewart | April 2005 | Updated December 2014
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 sensible mortal answer for these questions. The only answer that makes perfect sense is God.
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.
The Supernatural Word of God
Not only does simple logic testify to the existence of God, but so also does the Holy 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 Authoritative Word. One might reason that there are several “other” such books in the world that also CLAIM to be inspired by a divine being.
So what makes the Bible so special? . . .
- For one, it's CONTENT. No other book in this world addresses mankind's wicked sinfulness and need for divine redemption. Only the Holy Bible completely explains man's origin, purpose and destiny.
- The miraculous way in which the Holy Bible has been given to mankind. Literally thousands of manuscripts have been unearthed by archaeologists throughout Middle East (over 5,000 of the New Testament alone). If men authored the Bible, then it would have been impossible to bury the many different passages of the Bible, over varying centuries, in different languages and penned by forty different men. God is the divine Author of the Holy Bible.
- Obtaining forgiveness from God. Also, only the Bible tells us how to obtain forgiveness, salvation and peace with God (Romans 5:1; Romans 10:9-13).
- God's love for man. No other book in this world speaks of God's unconditional love for mankind (John 3:16).
- Eternal punishment for man's wickedness. No other book warns of God's fierce judgment and eternal punishment upon the ungodly (Revelation 20:11-15).
- Fulfilled prophecy. 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). The King James Bible contains 29% prophecy.
- Theological harmony of the total of Scripture. No other book in the world can boast of such harmony of agreement, between over forty known writers (God being the Divine Author), spanning 1,500 years 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...
Hebrews 11:3, “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.”
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...
Colossians 1:13-17, “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.”
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 that God exists! History proves that the King James Bible is God's inspired, preserved, inerrant, Word of God.
Man's Need is God's Proof
Man's need is God's proof. In every culture throughout history, men have sought God (whether the true and living God, humanism or idols as gods). Nature itself testifies of God's existence, Godhead, eternal power and goodness...
Romans 1:20-21, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”
There are innumerable proofs of God's existence. Science is one of them. Astronomy is nothing less than astonishing and a testimony to God's greatness and omnipotent power. Just as spectacular is the tiny world under the scrutiny of a microscope, manifesting the incredible knowledge, care and frightening power of our Creator. DNA is further evidence of God's divine handiwork.
Even in pagan areas of the world, primitive tribal peoples have historically sacrificed their children to alligators in rivers, burned them alive on the alter of Moloch, or some other cruel form of satanism. The human heart knows that sin must be paid for with blood and death. Thankfully, Christ offered Himself on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. Jesus is the Lamb of God offered up for all men. Hence, eternal life is a free gift to all, paid for by the sacrifice of Christ.
Evolution is Blatant Fraud
Evolution could not do what scientists foolishly claim it does. Evolution is blatant fraud, begun by occult Freemasons in the 19th century as the fulfillment of Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto (see 10th plank calling for public schools) to indoctrinate children. Monstrous murderer, Joseph Stalin (as well as killers Hitler, Mao and PolPot) were all devout followers of Charles Darwin's demonic falsehood, “The Origin of Species.” It was Darwin's demonic theories that lowered humans to the level of cattle, pigs and chickens to be slaughtered without conscience. Research any mass-murdering dictator's opinion of Charles Darwin and you'll see that what I say is true. The Bloody History Of Communism (a full-length 2:08 hour film; this is some really bizarre stuff). Watch this historical video, seeing all the senseless murdering of hundreds-of-millions of innocent people by atheists, and then tell me (if you can) that there is no God. You cannot if you are honest. When God is abandoned, so also is all morality and compassion for one's neighbour.
God Can Be Found if You Want Him
If you sincerely are confused and desire to know the truth, you will find it in the Word of God. Get you a King James Bible!!! Romans 10:16-17, “But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Our faith is increased by hearing the Word of God (the Holy Bible). When we hear what the Scriptures have to say, we learn THE TRUTH...
John 5:37-40, “And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.”
My friend, in closing, you don't have to search far for God to find Him, because He keeps you breathing (Daniel 5:23; Acts 17:25). God authored the Scriptures for you, and for me, and for all mankind. The Holy Bible is God's instruction manual to humanity. Jeremiah 29:13, “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” If you want to know God, then you must first know Jesus Christ, Who is the manifestation of the Godhead to the world (John 1:1-3,14; Colossians 2:9; 1st Timothy 3:16). If you'd like to know Jesus Christ, you must repent of your unbelief and believe THE GOSPEL (i.e., Christ died for your sins on the cross, He was buried and bodily resurrected after three days). This is the “gospel” according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4. Mark 1:15, “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”
