Researchers today revealed that the “Goldilocks” planet called Gliese (GLEE-zuh) 581g that was said to be orbiting a nearby star, may not exist after all.
When the announcement was made that an “Exoplanet” that could be very similar to the earth and may in fact contain life, it drew widespread attention all over the world. For years Atheists and non believers have claimed that it is rather prideful of Christians to insist that human being are the only life form found in the universe. The truth is that the Bible reveals that the sole purpose of the Universe was to “Display the Glory of God”.
Psalms 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard.”
It appears that the glory and power of the Lord is so great that He felt it necessary to make a public display of that glory so that the doubts and minds of all creation on earth would be settled as to whether or not He exists. That attempt seems to have failed since there remains a vast contingency of those who claim that there is no evidence for the existence of God.
Isn’t it amazing that Creation itself is not sufficient to stop the mouths of all scoffers for the existence of God? If a truck fell out of the sky and landed in front of these, one would imagine that they would proclaim that the event did not occur and is a figment of the imagination. When Paul wrote the Book of Romans under the direction of the Holy Spirit, he sought to forever shut the mouths of all human excuses for why they do not believe in the one true Living God.
Romans 1:18-25 “… men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible manâ€”and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things…. who exchanged the truth of God for the lie..”.
The fact is that when God created each one of us, he “Hardwired” internally a knowledge of Himself inside of us. Much as a computer designer hard wires a BIOS into a computer that allows it to know what it is and what it’s purpose is. God made us with a knowledge of Him. This is why on the day of judgement when men proclaim that they did not know that God exists, He will show them that place inside themselves where He placed this knowledge.
