Someone challenged me recently to prove that God exists. He couldn’t find any reason to believe that there is a God. He felt that we are just a collection of atoms.
The concept of god just contradicts everything I know about science. The scientific method, atoms, biology, etc. all seem to prove otherwise. I have a hard time understanding why anyone believes in god.
It is difficult for me to understand this because the more that I learn about the intricacies of the natural world around me, the harder it is for me to understand why anyone would NOT believe in God. Just look at the beauty of the sky and the snow in the featured image with this post. So could a collection of atoms just accidentally reproduce a scene like this?
The universe is filled with intricate design. And it is all the result of an explosion once upon a time. Would you expect an accident to produce a John Deere tractor? If not, how can you possible believe that DNA is the product of an accident?
Henry Morris said, in an old book of his, that there is far more chance of a hundred monkeys with typewriters reproducing the Encyclopedia Britanicca by accident without a spelling mistake than there is of an mindless, meaningless process producing the universe.
I feel that the biggest evidence of a God, however, is the change that I see taking place in the lives of people who give themselves to serving Him. I met a man who was a multiple murderer before he became a Christian. The change in his life was phenomenal. Only God can do this kind of work in the heart of a man.
Do you know Him? Have you seen his handiwork? I have.
“For the choir director: A psalm of David. The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world. God has made a home in the heavens for the sun. It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after his wedding. It rejoices like a great athlete eager to run the race. The sun rises at one end of the heavens and follows its course to the other end. Nothing can hide from its heat.” (Psa 19:1-6)
