    Evidence is not a Barrier to a Belief in God

    Evidence is not a Barrier to a Belief in God

    Human beings are masters at making excuses. We can convincingly provide the most vivid and detailed reasons for why we do things, as well as why we will not or cannot do other things. I have discovered that over the past four decades—after providing the most compelling evidence for the existence of God—about 90 percent of those who claim they do not believe in God for lack of evidence still will not believe, even after compelling facts are staring them in the face.

    Jesus said that the reason that men will not come and receive Him as their Savior is because—they love their sins more than they love Him.

    John 3:19 (Jesus speaking) This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. (NIV)

    For this reason, it is really a waste of time to try and convince most people that God exists, by evidence. Until a person reaches a place in their life where they see themselves as a sinner who is in need of a Savior, they will not be willing to change their life or their belief system—at all. I think that debating with atheists over the proof for the existence of God is a futile exercise. They do not want to be convinced, and there is no amount of facts or evidence that will ever convince most people. What is needed is a change of heart; and unless this takes place, the data for God is really not necessary.

    Without God: All Things Move Towards Disorder and Chaos

    Without God: All Things Move Towards Disorder and Chaos

    People will thank the earth, the sky, and the things on the earth for their existence, but not thank the God who made them. Such foolishness is irreconcilable to a rationally thinking man. If a person was born on the earth and had absolutely no contact with another human being while he was advancing in years, if he had never heard a single word on creationism or evolution, this person would logically and reasonably conclude that someone made this beautiful world that he lives in. It is a fairy tale and a foolish myth to conclude that the universe exists of its own volition. There are far more objects on the earth that are less complicated than the Cosmos, and yet no sane person has ever declared that any of these things are self-created or accidentally caused.

    The complexity of the atom, the intricacies of the cell, the amazing structure of complex gas and matter which have formed the planets and stars, are immensely complicated. Applied mathematicians specialize in the computation of certain events and actions that exist by chance. It has rightly been stated that the mathematical possibility that a single cell could have come into existence by itself is beyond chance. Even with billions of years of evolutionary processes, order never comes out of disorder. Try placing a cord from your iPhone in a drawer for a few days and see what happens. Place two socks in the dryer and notice how many come out of the dryer. All things on the earth and in the universe move towards chaos by themselves. The order that governs the universe today requires a massive power and intelligence to cause and keep the universe in a state of order.

  • Prophecy of the Messiah: The Spirit Shall Rest on Him

    Prophecy of the Messiah: The Spirit Shall Rest on Him

    With this infinite might contained within Jesus as Creator, He has the ability to generate or destroy anything by simply speaking: We can only speculate what Jesus could have done in this situation, if He chose to annihilate rather than create, Pilate and the universe itself could have ceased to exist in a massive heat death. The New Testament is full of examples where Jesus could have used His might as God to destroy those in opposition to Him. Instead, He chose to use His great power to subdue His rights as God. He humbled Himself and became obedient to the Father, giving up His life to die in order to pay for the sins of all people.

    Philippians 2:7-8 but (Jesus) made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.

    It is amazing to consider that although Jesus was laying down His life for us as a servant, He was still Lord of the universe and in control over absolutely everything.

    The foal of a donkey submits to His authority (Matthew 21:7).
    The wind and the waves are calmed at His command (Mark 4:39).
    The dead return to life by His word (John 11:43).
    Death itself has no power over Him (John 11:25).
    Sickness and disease cannot overcome His authority (Luke 18:42).
    The demons fall at His feet in submission (Luke 4:35).
    The devil cannot defeat His wisdom and power (Matthew 4:10).
    All History cannot resist His sovereign will (Matthew 26:56).
    Every kingdom of this world will submit to His rulership (Matthew 19:28).

    Eventually, every knee will bow to Jesus and every tongue will confess that He is the Lord.

  • The Impossible Paradox of Young Earth Creationism

    The Impossible Paradox of Young Earth Creationism

    For many years there has been an unbridgeable gap between the fundamentalist position of Biblical creationism and the scientific theory for the origin of the universe.

    Christians have long maintained that the earth was created about 6,000 years ago, because of the dates and times given in the Bible that have led to this conclusion.

    In 1654 Archbishop James Ussher of Armagh, after having worked his way through all of the genealogies of the Bible, announced that the date of Creation described in Genesis 1:3, was Sunday October 21, 4004 B.C, at 9:00 am in the morning. Archbishop Ussher arrived at this conclusion strictly by studying the Bible.⁠1

    However, this does not mean that the date for the creation of the universe was 4004 B.C. The first verse of Genesis describes the fact that “in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”

    Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

    The Bible does not tell us when “in the beginning” occurred. If modern Astronomy can correctly measure the age of the expanding universe by accurate means, and determine that it is 1bout 13.7 billion years old, this certainly does not conflict with Genesis chapter 1, verse 1.

  • Prophecy: Earth Will be Struck by a Giant Asteroid

    Prophecy: Earth Will be Struck by a Giant Asteroid

    As we examine the world today. Increases in violence, and the prevalence of evil all over the face of the earth, we understand that the return of Jesus for His church at the event called “the Rapture”, cannot be far off. When the Rapture takes place, the world will begin the events described in the Book of Revelation, chapter 6, “The Tribulation Period.” Beginning at Revelation chapter 6, the opening of the first “seal” by Jesus, commences a seven year peace instituted by someone who appears to be like Jesus, but will instead be the “antichrist” coming as a false “Savior”. He is described by chapter 6, verse 1 as riding on a white horse similar to the description of Jesus in Revelation chapter 19, when He returns to earth.

    At the opening of the second seal, the temporary peace that the antichrist has brought, is interrupted at the middle of the seven years, by war. The Third seal reveals the results of a massive global war; a shortage of food. The Fourth seal reveals global death from the war that has ensued. The fifth seal reveals the murder of those who receive Jesus as their Savior during this time. The sixth seal begins a description that sounds like a massive onslaught of Asteroids making contact with the earth.

  • Evolution Refuted by Their Own Evidence

    Evolution Refuted by Their Own Evidence

    There is a very good reason that Evolution is called “The theory of Evolution”

    Theory: “An uncertain belief that is at present unprovable, that is being used to explain something that is based on a general set of principles that are as yet unexplained.

    Evolution is simply a group of ideas that are being used to prove that life originated from a series of mutations. The problem with the present “theory” is that after 100 years, there is still no solid empirical evidence that conclusively proves the theory of evolution.

    Often, you will hear those that claim to be experts in evolution, put forth statements that appear to be authoritative and conclusive. What we discover in reality is that these are unprovable ideas that have no real scientific basis.

    In January of 2009, a publication called “15 Evolutionary Gems” listed what they called “a succinct briefing on why evolution by natural selection is an empirically validated”. Written by Henry Gee, Rory Howlett and Philip Campbell, this publication describes itself as “a resource from nature for those wishing to spread awareness of evidence for evolution by natural selection”.

    In reality, the 15 points made by these three men are nothing more than foolishness and pandering to the lost cause that evolution is conclusive and absolute. I originally intended on refuting all 15 of the claims for evidence that these three men have published as evolutionary facts. Upon examination of the first “proof” that they offered, it became so apparent that all of these claims are utterly ridiculous with no real scientific or rational basis, I ended my article on this subject after the first proof from their publication. To continue to refute all 15 is really a waste of your time and mine. In every case, all of the points of “eidence” that are presented by these men, are as easily refuted as the first example I gave here.

  • Why Salvation is a Free Gift

    Why Salvation is a Free Gift

    Evolution is a “theory” for how life began, not a provable and tested fact. Why then do we allow the declaration that evolution is a settled fact to continue? Until evolution can be proven, other theories such as creation, and intelligent design should be studied, talked about, and taught as valid and plausible possibilities for how life began. Liberals pride themselves on being open minded. Except when it comes to matters of evolution, abortion, or accountability to a Creator. In these issues, those who think of themselves as being very wise and evolved in their free thinking, have absolutely no tolerance for any other opinion.

    When we hear celebrities such as Bill Maher make statements that evolution is an established fact, it causes us to wonder just how smart many of these public figures really are. Some famous people seem to believe that because someone with the letters “Phd.” Behind their name says that something is a fact, that it must be a fact. Of course the reason that evolution is so widely accepted is not for it’s scientific truth, or established facts, it is because it eliminates the need for God and thereby allows a person to live their life anyway that they choose, and be free from guilt for their sins.

  • Prophecies of Scientific, Mathematical, and Astronomical Knowledge

    Prophecies of Scientific, Mathematical, and Astronomical Knowledge

    Three thousand years ago, the writer of Psalm 19 described the Sun as following a “circuit”, or circular course, through the universe.

    Psalms 19:4-6 He has set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, 5 And rejoices like a strong man to run its race. 6 Its rising is from one end of heaven, And its circuit to the other end; And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

    Today, through the use of powerful telescopes, we no know that the sun is part of an enormous spiral galaxy called “the Milky Way”. The sun does in fact, move in a “circuit” or circular course through the universe, at speeds of more than 600,000 miles per hour. The milky way galaxy itself is flying through space at an estimated speed of over 2 million miles per hour.

    How did the Psalmist know this 3,000 years ago? Obviously, he didn’t know. The Bible claims that “Holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

    2 Peter 1:21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

    The amazing power of the Living God, is such that He is able to speak to men who have set themselves aside for the Lord, so as to be used by Him. They write under the inspiration of the Spirit of God, what He wants them to say. Why this is difficult for people to believe, is beyond me. It is logical that if there is a God that has the technology and power to create this vast and complex universe, He is certainly able to cause men to write what He wants them to write and preserve it over time.

    Life on Earth to End… In 4 Billion Years

    Life on Earth to End… In 4 Billion Years

    Four billion years from now, the Milky Way galaxy as we know it will cease to exist.

    Our Milky Way is bound for a head-on collision with the similar-sized Andromeda galaxy, researchers announced today (May 31). Over time, the huge galactic smashup will create an entirely new hybrid galaxy, one likely bearing an elliptical shape rather than the Milky Way’s trademark spiral-armed disk.

    “We do know of other galaxies in the local universe around us that are in the process of colliding and merging,” Roeland van der Marel, of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, told reporters today. “However, what makes the future merger of the Andromeda galaxy and the Milky Way so special is that it will happen to us.” ‘We do know of other galaxies in the local universe around us that are in the process of colliding and merging.’

  • Memorial Day: Places of Testing and Growth

    Memorial Day: Places of Testing and Growth

    Today we celebrate “Memorial Day”.

    It is a day that we set aside to remember those who have sacrificed their lives over the years, so that we might be free and safe here in the United States of America.

    “Memorial Day”, is to help us remember, but the Bible also wants for us to celebrate other “Memorial Days”. Days in which the Lord has shown us His mighty power, His Love, and who He is.

    Days in which we might “Remember” who our God is, and that He has the power to also deliver us.

    Exodus 12:14 So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the LORD throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance

  • We Cannot Know “How”, Without Knowing “Why”

    We Cannot Know “How”, Without Knowing “Why”

    Scientists and Physicists believe that the “constants” that we observe in the universe are related to each other, therefore we really don’t have as many examples of fine tuning as we formerly thought. In other words, if we change one of the constants, perhaps it will affect some of the other constants, maybe it won’t. The problem with this theory is that there is no physical evidence for this. All the evidence that exists today suggests that the fine tuning of the universe is not going to change. Every time scientists try to suppress the fine tuning is one area, it comes up in another place. Given the multiplicity and the variety of fine tuning, it is highly unlikely that fine tuning will not be true in any future physics.

    This leaves us with a choice between an intelligent designer or agent and the latest theory of “Multi-verse” hypothesis. In “multi-verse”, or “many worlds” theory, there is a failure at explaining why the fine tuning of the universe could exist if there are many, many universes that exist simultaneously. In this latest “Multi-verse” theory, experts try to explain the existence of human beings on a planet that has been finely tuned, on the basis of what they call “a selection effect”. The latest experts state that only in finely tuned universes can we have observers of the fine tuning, such as human beings, so why should we be surprised that we can observe the fine tuning of the universe?

    What this thought fails to recognize is that it is not true that all observable universes have to be “finely tuned”.

  • “In the Beginning”… You Weren’t There

    “In the Beginning”… You Weren’t There

    According to Lawrence Krauss, the author of “A Universe From Nothing”, and many other bestselling books on Physics and Cosmology, the universe began from nothing. The universe being flat, and about 13.7 billions years old, is made up of 30 percent dark matter and 70 percent dark energy. Mr. Krauss says that if we subtract everything in the universe that is visible, including all human life, the Cosmos will not change at all.

    In his opinion, this tells us that human beings are “even more insignificant than any of us ever imagined.”

    In his famous Youtube video on the universe originating from nothing, Mr. Krauss states: “We are completely irrelevant. Why such a universe would be made for us when we are so irrelevant, is beyond me…”

  • Origin of the Universe, Which One Takes More Faith?

    Origin of the Universe, Which One Takes More Faith?

    Atheists often criticize Christians in that they formerly believed that the Sun orbited the earth, prior to the 19th century. Until the recent past, Atheists believed that the universe was eternal, that it has always exited and always will exist.

    Today, scientists understand that the Universe had a finite beginning, and eventually it will have an ending.

    This leaves us with only two legitimate and logical explanations for the origin of the universe:

    Someone created the universe.
    The Universe created itself.
    Which of these two possibilities are more logical?

    Let us imagine that the universe arose out of some spontaneous uncontrolled mechanism, whereby it eventually developed, over billions of years of course, into all the life forms that we see present today.

    So, we would say: “In the beginning, there was nothing, then it exploded, and became everything that we can see, and everything that we cannot see…”

    Or, “In the beginning God created the universe…”

    Which of these takes more faith?

  • Being a Christian at NASA Will Cost You Your Job

    Being a Christian at NASA Will Cost You Your Job

    Since it’s inception, the Theory of Evolution has remained just that “A Theory”. It has never been proven by evidence that links lower primates to human beings, yet it is used in all of our schools and accepted widely by most of the world’s secular intellectuals, as fact.

    Now, if you subscribe to any other theory for the origin of the Universe and the fact of man’s existence, you are labeled ignorant, uninformed and naive .

    At the United States NASA headquarters, if you are not a believer in the religion of evolution, you cannot belong to their church.

    An evangelical Christian, David Coppedge, has been fired from his job of 15 years for believing in God and the theory that the Universe and man were both created by an infinite intelligent being.

    The following article is from the Associated Press. For a Christian, this firing is both shocking and frightening. That a man or woman could lose their career now for believing in God and expressing that faith while at work, is a travesty of every law of freedom the US. has been founded upon.

  • Irreducibly Complex Systems “Didn’t Plan to Evolve”

    Irreducibly Complex Systems “Didn’t Plan to Evolve”

    In his Youtube video, the author of “QualiaSoup”, seeks to make his case that Irreducibly complex organisms are not so irreducibly complex. The author takes the listener through a series of mental gymnastics in which he asks the participant to accept his assumptions that explain why irreducibly complex systems such as the human eye, could have evolved.

    In an explanation of the mouse trap, an irreducibly complex system, the author states that by removing the mechanism from the base and attaching it to another base, we have rendered the mechanism non-irreduciblly complex.

    In a quickly passed over statement immediately after the mousetrap example, the author states:

    “A mousetrap is made with a goal in mind, evolution has no such goals, living mouse catchers didn’t plan to evolve that way…” (Excerpt from Qualiasoup You tube video)

    In other words, the complexity of the human eye, was not planned. In evolutionary thought, a human eye, as amazing and complex as it is, just happened by accident. The author asks us to accept that it was never the goal of any irreducibly complex system, to become whatever it became, it just happened to end up that way by chance.

  • Asteroid 2011 AG5 on a Collision Course With Earth

    Asteroid 2011 AG5 on a Collision Course With Earth

    Those who study Bible Prophecy are always interested in the occurrences of Near Earth Objects that will pass within close proximity to earth. The potential for massive destruction and loss of human life, in the event of an impact by one of these larger Asteroids, gives great cause for concern.

    Asteroid 2011 AG5, is one of the most recent giants that has given scientists alarm. At more than 460 feet wide, this space rock is on a potential collision course with Earth in the year 2040. The estimated destructive power of an impact with Earth by this asteroid is about 105 Megatons of TNT, or approximately 2 larger Thermonuclear Detonations.

    In reminiscence of the recent movies “Armageddon” and “Deep Impact”, scientists have already given such great concern to this asteroid that they are planning how to deflect it.

    Discovered in January of 2011, we are only now learning of this dangerous asteroid from the scientific community. It makes us wonder if a planet killer were ever on a direct course with earth, if we would ever know about such a threat, before it would happen.

    The Desperate Search to Find Life on Other Planets

    The Desperate Search to Find Life on Other Planets

    It seems that every week a new report comes out from the scientific community, that a planet has been discovered where “life is possible”. What is not stated, is that the variables necessary to make human life possible are categorically Impossible.

    In a previous article, (Click Here) I detail the finely tuned environment necessary for earth to support human life, and the fact that it is virtually impossible for these conditions to exist, unless someone designed these specific conditions and continues to control them, to make life possible on earth.

    Uniqueness in the placement of Earth in the Universe, and the specific placement of the Milky Way Galaxy in the Universe:

    Comet “Lovejoy” Passes Through the Sun Unharmed

    Comet “Lovejoy” Passes Through the Sun Unharmed

    Every once in a while, news comes out of NASA that is truly stunning. A recent Comet discovered by an amateur Astronomer in Australia has peaked the interest of Scientists and Astronomers around the world.

    Each year there are thousands of small comets that have a trajectory that bring them into the atmosphere of the Sun. Upon entrance to the Sun’s atmosphere, these masses of ice and rock, disintegrate and vaporize.

    Comet “Lovejoy”, as was named by amateur Atsronomer Terry Lovejoy, was different. Upon entering the Sun’s massive heat, the tail disappeared. Astronomers expected the comet to vaporize, as do all other comets that have entered the Sun’s super heated atmosphere in the past. Lovejoy not only failed to vaporize, but came out the other side of the Sun’s atmosphere seemingly unscathed, once again with a massive tail.
