Watch “Lennox Vs. Dawkins Debate – Has Science Buried God?” on YouTube

A debate was scheduled at the Oxford Museum of Natural History between Atheist Richard Dawkins and Christian Denesh DeSuza, who was called away at the last minute for a family emergency.  Luckily Dr. John Lennox was in the crowd and graciously accepted the offer to take DeSuza’s place. Much to Richard Dawkins shagrin.
You see, the two of them debated once before, and Dawkins has apparently been reluctant to debate Lennox ever since.

DNA Science is Unraveling Darwin’s Theory of Evolution

image

Sorry Darwin.
There is no model in science for increasing information through natural selection. Darwin assumed there was.
Modern science proves natural selection loses information and results in degradation. Subtraction cannot result in addition.
You just can’t get 3.2 billion bits of genetic information code in every strand of human DNA that way.
But then if we see a red octagon shaped sign with STOP written on it, we would never assume it got there by random time plus matter plus chance. We would know an intelligent being put that information there.
We have God’s signature in our cells. We know it as DNA. Information with order. Words with meaning.
That is intelligence.

Of Jesus Christ, John’s Gospel says,

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

“He was in the beginning with God.”

“All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.” (John 1:1-3, NKJV, The Bible)

Evolution – The Theory of Everything – and The Definition of Insanity

image

The Definition of Insanity is to do the same thing over and over again while expecting a different outcome.

This concept can be true for scientific theory also, adding a multitude of repetitions to a scientifically flawed theory will not eventually make that theory true.

This was Darwin’s missing link in his science, when he made an unfounded assumption that short term adaptation of species eventually amounted to differentiation of entirely new species over millennia.
The fossil record says no.
Our fine-tuned and information rich DNA says no.
In regards to biological origin, we now know the difference between the adaptation of a species and the creation of entirely different species.

If Darwin had known the science that we know now he never would have concluded that adaptation amounted to entirely different groups of species, even by adding millions and millions of years.
Repeating bad science over and over again, even millions of times, and expecting a different outcome is Insanity.

This is also true for the Origin of the Universe.  From the first 3 seconds of creation at the Big Bang to all the conditions that must be precisely as they are to support life on Earth, most scientists agree we live in a truly remarkable and finely tuned existence.

Steven Hawking claims he can explain why our universe is so finely tuned in so many ways. He calls his, “Theory of Everything “, M Theory.

M Theory is what Hawking calls a Multiverse.
In Hawking’s Multiverse, an infinite number of universes are created by gravity, matter, and the laws of the universe. Hawking assumes that infinite repetitions repeated over and over again, we will eventually have a finely-tuned universe, and solar system, and planet with precisely all the conditions needed to sustain life as we know it.
Repeating flawed theory over and over again, even to infinity, and expecting a different outcome is insanity.

Sir Roger Penrose is an equally qualified mathematician of physics who worked with Hawking and shared the 1988 Wolf Prize with Hawking for their work on understanding the universe.
When asked what he thought about Hawking’s Multiverse Theory, Sir Penrose is reported as saying, “M Theory is far from testable”, “it isn’t even science.”  And other notable scientists agree with Penrose.

But what M Theory may be is insanity.
It certainly fits the definition of Insanity better than it fits the definition of science, which is that it must be testable and observable.

I am a Christian and believe God is the most plausible answer to everything.

The science of the fine-tuning of the Origin of the Cosmos above, and the fine-tuning of the information-richness contained within our DNA within each of us reaffirms my belief that,
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.”

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”
(John 1: 1-3, 14 NKJV)

Darwin’s Theory Has Evolved into an Epic Fail

Darwin didn’t know in 1838 what we know now after decades of scientific research.

The missing link on which Darwin’s theory depends, never existed.

Darwin’s theory has evolved into an epic fail.

Darwin’s”science” can’t pass the test of scientific method.
Darwin’s theory of “Differences of Kind” does not stand up to it’s own test of ,”Observable Evidence”.

Darwin’s theory unravels with the introduction of “millions of years” thus again failing the “Observable Evidence” test.

Darwin’s “finches” show only adaptation, not what Darwin theorized to be “Differences of Kind”.

Neither biology or the fossil record show any proof in the form of “Observable Evidence” of “Differences of Kind” or transitional links in kinds among the 14 species of living things.

As time goes on, the evolution of scientific sophistication and accumulation of scientific evidence only confirms what we were told in the beginning.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
(Gen 1:1 NKJV)

The True Origin of the Species – Will the Theory of Evolution Be One of the Greatest Jokes in the History Books of the Future ?

image

“I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially to the extent to which it has been applied, will be one of the greatest jokes in the history books of the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity it has.” 

~Malcolm Muggeridge ~

I agree with Muggeridge’s prediction.

DNA is at the core of all living things.

And incredibly, the more we learn about it, the more sophisticated we find it to be.

Those who both discovered DNA and those who know it best agree, it simply could not have originated by random chance.

Some of them believe aliens seeded DNA on earth or a comet brought it here but none can begin to explain how it arrived at the present complexity that makes you and I all we are.

It’s just not mathematically possible in 15, 30, or even 300 billion years.

Even if life was seeded here by aliens or brought here from elsewhere by a comet, this much remains unanswered, “Who originally designed our designers ?”
At some point there has to be an Undesigned Designer who always was, and is eternal.

An Original Originator.

And DNA is like an ancient echo from the origin of all living things and reflects an intelligence beyond our modern comprehension.

We have the ancient Biblical records that proclaim ,”God spoke and it was,” and we have the modern day proof of what God said in the scientific evidence of DNA.

Given the undeniably marvelous and miraculous complexity and sophistication of DNA and that it is the most sophisticated of all known languages, and this level of sophistication uses only four biological letters, (I call them letters because that is what geneticists call them), and given the fact that the Bible says that all living and nonliving things came into existence by God’s spoken word, one can say that the known scientific evidence of DNA is observational proof and scientific validation of the Biblical book of Genesis account of God as Creator of this world in it’s entirety.

Don’t be fooled.
Accept only the Original.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
21 “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
(2Cor 5:17,21 NKJV)

The Cosmos Within – The Greatest Scientific Discovery of All Time – A Highly Sophisticated Language Is at the Core of All Living Creatures

image

image
Compare this digital rendering of Human DNA with the stained glass window below it. DNA is magnificently ordered. Information with order is proof of intelligent origin.

The book of Genesis in the Bible records that God spoke all things into existence. God spoke and it was. DNA is an echo of what God said.

The question of origin is one of the biggest questions in life.

The answer to the source of life, our origin, could help answer the other big questions of, meaning, morality, and destiny.

The problem is that ideas and theories formed before the discovery of DNA.

And the facts about DNA unfolded little by little over decades, almost completely without being noticed for the deepest meaning of DNA.

Darwin formed his theory of Evolution long before DNA was even discovered, and even longer before we would discover the complexity of DNA.

DNA is not a complexity that is born out of randomness, but it is a complexity that is highly sophisticated and ordered.

In fact, the complexity of DNA transcends the realm of science and ushers us into the realm of the miraculous. Scientists agree despite themselves.

Sir Francis Crick for instance, who took credit for discovering the incredibly ordered appearance of the Double Helix form of DNA,
believed aliens must have brought DNA to Earth.

But in time we would learn that even Crick’s theory of alien supreme beings sending life on our planet only moves the question of a intelligent engineer / creator back one step without answering the question at all.

We are left to then ask, who was the supreme being who engineered and created the aliens ?

Later Crick would partially concede by calling the presence of life as we know it, Almost a miracle.

The issue here is that the universe is not old enough for random chance to assemble our level of complexity, and the same is then true for all life in the universe, such as alien life forms.

Mathematicians cannot find evidence to support Darwin’s theory of Evolution. On the contrary. When they calculated the odds of time plus matter plus chance arriving at complex human protein formation, they discovered the odds of Darwin’s theory are,”beyond ridiculous”. Even with 13 billion years since the Big Bang, our human proteins could not have formed by chance.

But we have understood far more about human proteins than we understand about our DNA language, which appears far more complex than proteins. Yes, DNA is a language. Remember that God spoke all things into existence?

One recent discovery, for example, is that geneticists recently found another layer of DNA that was previously “hidden” , it works in harmony with the previously known DNA.

And before that, scientists discovered that DNA that was labeled as unnecessary or “junk DNA” , is in fact absolutely necessary and serves functions we could not have previously envisioned.

It took years to map Human DNA, but mapping DNA is not understanding DNA. Scientists who know DNA best say that understanding the DNA language will keep them busy for the next 100 years.

Even if the universe was several times older than 13 billion years, the complexity of DNA could not have formed by random chance.

To put it in contrast, we are told that the universe has 10 to the 85th power total atoms. That’s the number ten followed by 85 zeros. A big number for sure.

Now picture a number 471 times bigger than that. That is the odds that life came into being by Darwinian random chance. It really is beyond ridiculous. That is 10 to the 40,000th power against Darwinian theory.
Even if the the presence of carbon in the universe halved that number, as some proposed, it would still be beyond ridiculous to believe Darwin.

Each strand of DNA contains 3.1 Billion bits of highly ordered information. The recently discovered additional layer of hidden DNA will no doubt increase that number above the 3.1 Billion bits of information. Our universe is 13 billion years old. You don’t have to be a mathematical genius to see evolutionary random chance simply could not have the time to assemble our DNA.

Even Hawking can’t understand the complexity of why the universe goes to,“all the bother of existing”.

Apparently Hawking discovered that in the properties of the laws of physics, the big bang had to be precise withing 1 Quintillionth of a second or the universe would have immediately re-collapsed on itself.

This was only one of some 31 contingent events that all had to happen with such exact properties and in precise correlation to each of the other that it would take more faith to believe the Big Bang happened by mere random chance than it would to believe the Big Bang was carefully orchestrated by God.

Hawking confidently stated that the universe didn’t need God?

Why does the scientific society cling to old scientific theories that have been proven false by newer scientific fact ?

That question is an even tougher one to answer.
What we now know about DNA means that it takes more faith to believe in evolution than to believe that God is our Creator.

As time goes on and scientific gains are made in all areas of proven scientific fact, all facts increasingly support the miraculous and Biblical account of God as Author and Creator.

Science really is discovering how God did it.

God spoke, and it was, and at the core of life DNA echoes what God said. Information with order equals intelligence. The all knowing intelligence of God.

Consider this. God made us for a relationship with Him. And God has gone to even greater lengths to make a way for us back to Him.

As it is written in God’s word about Jesus in the Bible.

“giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.”
(Colossians 1:12-16)

Oxford Scientists Confirm Biblical Account of the Human Conscience – C.S.Lewis said it -“You Don’t Have a Soul – You Are a Soul – You Have a Body”

wpid-paperartist_2014-02-02_10-18-22.jpeg
“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image,”
(Genesis 1, The Bible)

Oxford scientists have discovered humans are unique from all species of living things.

The researchers identified two areas of the human brain that are both physically and functionality unique to humans.

Humans alone have physical portions of our brain designated to diserning good and evil.

Discribed as ,”Shaped like small stems of broccoli”, these areas are active when people are asked questions that challenge disernment between good and evil.

The significance of the fact that humans alone have the ability to judge good and evil has literally rocked the scientific and philosophical worlds.

But knowing the difference between good and evil does not mean that we can always choose to do good.

And that is where the issue of responsibility for our actions come becomes Biblical. That is what shows why only a Messiah, Jesus Christ, was necessary. Only Jesus could choose to do good and only the perfect and sinless One could pay for our sin.

The fact that we are physically different a major way confirms our Biblical description and need, and gives even more credence to the Jesus of the Bible.

Humans alone are designed to sense differences between good and evil, sin and righteousness.

We have the capacity to recognize Holiness even though we incapable of perfection ourselves.

Evolutionary theorists can no longer use animal behavior as a model for justification of human behavior and human cultural trends or sexual behavior.

Chimpanzees, Apes and Bonobo monkeys don’t have these uniquely human portions of the brain, nore do and other species of animal or mammal.

“And you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis in The Bible)

This new discovery supports the Biblical account of creation of the world and all that is in it.

Mankind was created by God and unique from all other species of creation to uniquely reflect the image of the Creator.

This new finding supports a non-evolutionary, Biblical account of creation, not primordial soup theory, or evolution at in any way.

The implications of a physical character of the human brain that is constructed to relate to a being who is the source of all that is good, holy, and righteous, is confirmation that humanity is unique in recognizing God for who and what He is. This is at the core of the truth most important to humanity.

The most important thing to humanity is to know we were created by God and for a relationship with God. And that sin separated us from God, but Christ died in our place to pay for our sin, and offers redemption to all who will only choose to receive Him as Lord and Savior.
“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image,
according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
(Gen 1:26-27 NKJV)

DNA is Evidence of God – “order with content,” is proof of Intelligence Based Origin -Lee Stroeble

 Our genetic code is language, and is but a record of what,”God said.”

Lee Stroeble , former Court Journalist for the Chicago Sun Times, presents the overwhelming scientific evidence found in our DNA to support the Biblical God as our Creator.

Using the Story line from the movie,”Contact”, Stroeble makes his case.

Stroeble points out that Carl Sagan said that if we ever received an ordered message with content from outer space, then we could reasonably conclude that the message originated from intelligent life.

Though Sagan denied God as creator, his claim for ,”order with content,”as proof of Intelligence would come years after his death in modern Genetic scientific discoveries in DNA.

The Bible record of creation in the book of Genesis repeats the words,”God said”,11 times during the creation of the world and all living things.

The correlation between Genesis and the language of DNA at the core of all living things means our genetic code is but a record of what,”God said.”

DNA is a ,”message with content,” far more sophisticated than our greatest minds can fully grasp.

DNA is a coded language so sophisticated that our greatest minds still can’t fathom it fully, and those most familiar with the ongoing work say we will be deciphering it for the next 100 years. (Genetic Encyclopedia Project,ENCODE, 2012)

Appendix

The 3% of our DNA that is “STRUCTURAL” meaning that it defines our biological characteristics, has been mapped.

The rest of our DNA appears to work as a series of switches comprising a communicational network for our structural information, and was previously considered random ,”junk”.

It is this apparent communication network that we know least about.

This is the part of our DNA that is subject to discovery.

JUNK DNA- May Not Be Junk After All

(Quoted from Gene exchange no 2, 1996)In another reminder that we may not understand the full ramifications of genetic engineering, Science magazine recently reported new work on the function of genetic material*. Scientists have long been puzzled by the fact that fully 97% of the DNA in human cells does not code for proteins and appears to consist of meaningless sequences. The possibility that this apparently useless DNA has some as yet unknown function continues to tantalize scientists.The Science article reports on a paper suggesting that the non-coding 97% of the DNA, commonly referred to as junk DNA, might have a function.

The authors of the paper employed linguistic tests to analyze junk DNA and discovered striking similarities to ordinary language. The scientists interpret those similarities as suggestions that there might be messages in the junk sequences, although its anyone s guess as to how the language might work. (* F. Flam, Hints of a language in junk DNA, Science 266:1320, 1994)

“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:26,27)

“How Great is Our God: with Louie Giglio (full video)” 40 min.

( Click here for the full Video )

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. Psalms 33:6

Louie Giglio blows our minds as we try to grasp the enormity of God’s creation.

Just a glance into the massive universe that God has made adjusts our view of God in contrast to our sin and struggles.

Pastor Giglio also tells of what is known of DNA and how it further proves , “we are fearfully and wonderfully made”.

Then Giglio tells how he was approached by a molecular biologist on one occasion after telling of the bigness of God. This man challenged Giglio to tell everyone about the protein, “Laminin”. This protein literally holds us together. Amazingly,under an electron microscope, a single Laminin protein resembles a cross.

Here is the definition of Laminin that I found in Wikipedia.

“The trimeric proteins intersect to form a cross-like structure that can bind to other cell membrane and extracellular matrix molecules.”

Even more amazingly beautiful is the alignment with the Bible as it describes how Christ,,” holds all things together.”

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” (Colossians 1:15-20)

This is an amazing sermon about our amazing God who’s love is beyond the vastness of the entire universe, yet reaches to the smallest detail of who and what we are.

God’s signature and compassion is literally everywhere.

“But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”

( Galatians 6:14 )

Natural Wonder – An Atheist’s Inditement

 

“It seems to me that Richard Dawkins constantly overlooks the fact that Darwin himself, in the fourteenth chapter of The Origin of Species, pointed out that his whole argument began with a being which already possessed reproductive powers. This is the creature the evolution of which a truly comprehensive theory of evolution must give some account. Darwin himself was well aware that he had not produced such an account. It now seems to me that the findings of more than fifty years of DNA research have provided materials for a new and enormously powerful argument to design.” The Late Anthony Flew- Atheist turned Theist

“For God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against all godlessness and unrighteousness of people who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth,  since what can be known about God is evident among them, because God has shown it to them.  For His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what He has made. As a result, people are without excuse.  For though they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or show gratitude. Instead, their thinking became nonsense, and their senseless minds were darkened.  Claiming to be wise, they became fools.(Romans 1:18-22)

Dare to Contemplate the Universal Sense of Meaning in A Flower – Nature Communicating that God is Love

Gardenia jasminoides

Gardenia jasminoides (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 “nature is red in tooth and claw,”

Charles Darwin

Many today deny that nature reflects the Loving Creator written about in the Bible.

Some say God is silent and does not speak to us at all.

Why then do we give flowers to communicate romantic love?

And as a comfort, we give bouquets of flowers to show love to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one.

In times of grief when mere words are insufficient, flowers are given by those who wish to express their love and to comfort and console others.

Virtually every culture and nation interprets the message of flowers with the same meaning.

If we contemplate natural beauty long enough, we can hear it calling to a deep longing within our souls.

It is God saying,”I love you.”

The following story is told by Victor Frankl, a survivor of the Nazi concentration camps of WWII.

“Some details of a particular man’s inner greatness may have come to one’s mind, like the story of the young woman whose death I witnessed in a concentration camp. It is a simple story. There is little to tell and it may sound as if I had invented it; but to me it seems like a poem.”

“This young woman knew that she would die in the next few days. But when I talked to her she was cheerful in spite of this knowledge. “I am grateful that fate has hit me so hard,” she told me. “In my former life I was spoiled and did not take spiritual accomplishments seriously.” Pointing through the window of the hut, she said, “This tree here is the only friend I have in my loneliness.” Through that window she could see just one branch of a chestnut tree, and on the branch were two blossoms. “I often talk to this tree,” she said to me. I was startled and didn’t quite know how to take her words. Was she delirious? Did she have occasional hallucinations? Anxiously I asked her if the tree replied. “Yes.” What did it say to her? She answered, “It said to me, ‘I am here — I am here — I am life, eternal life.'” …  Victor Frankl

It is God, creator of all that is, calling us back to Him through His attributes that are reflected in His creation.

So when you look at a flower, try to take it all in.

Try to let all its meaning fill your soul.

Consider the fact that God made it for a reason, and that you see something in each flower that resonates meaning to you.

Such beauty defies our ability to describe it fully.

Add to that the cent of the Rose,  Gardenia, or that of many kinds of flowers, and we are well beyond a logical description of the purpose and reason for the existence of flowers.

The purpose for the beauty and fragrant cent of the Rose is for you to know that our creator is calling each of us to Himself.

God is love,  and flowers are a universal way for mankind to communicate our love to others with flowers.

We have already made the connection.

We already know the message and meaning for why flowers exist.

God made them as a means to communicate a message to each of us.

The message flowers convey to us is, God is Love, and He longs for you to know and Love Him as He loves you. 

As the flowers pedals beckon, so God’s arms are open wide and He beckons us to Him.

He has shown the full measure of how much He loves us in the Cross of Christ.

    “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

The link below is a perfect example of the natural message communicated to us through creation.

Go ahead, Dare to Contemplate the Universal Sense of Meaning in A Flower.

Watch the remarkable the Video below,..and here God saying,”I love you.”

Faith is How Our Finite Minds Grasp the Concept of an Infinite God

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”

Hebrews 11:1

Faith is belief.  (Hebrews 11:1)

Faith is confidence. (Also Hebrews 11:1)

Faith is trust.

This faith is a belief, confidence, and trust in another being, who is almighty God, creator of all the universe.

This faith is the pathway to hope, life and fulfillment in the inmost being,and the satisfying of our greatest longings in the deepest reaches of our souls.

To know and to be fully known.

To love and be fully loved.

For some the problem is accepting that God exists.

They reject that everything came from something, (God, an Intelligent being).

Atheists and Agnostics believe that everything came from nothing. ( they can’t explain  how the highly sophisticated language of DNA came to be).

(No it can’t be aliens because then we ask who created them ?)

We all know the name Alfred Einstein.

His greatness is based on many mathematical theories that have since become reality, and many that are considered too advanced even for modern science.

In other words, Einstein could map the future with accuracy using scientific mathematics and formulas.

This is also true for mapping the past with accuracy using scientific mathematics and formulas.

The mathematical odds make the amount of order in creation of a single bacterium impossible to reach by odds of 10 to the billionth power to 1 against Darwin’s theory of evolution.

Science is in serious denial.

The order and intelligence reflected in creation is impossible for Evolutionists to explain.

This is where God makes sense.

God is our infinitely intelligent creator, and all of creation reflects some attributes of His order and intelligence.

A being of infinite power and intelligence created all that is.

The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it,the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.

Psalm 24:1,2

Now faith begins to make sense, and even seem logical.

How can finite beings fully comprehend an infinite being  that is God?

Only another God could do that. And there are no other Gods.

“I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God.”

Isaiah 45:5 

Faith is simply acknowledging that God is who He has said He is,that He can do what He has said He can do,and that He is perfect,Holy and He is love.

An important word to note here ; Christ was perfect. Christians and those who have professed to being Christians are not perfect.

And history is rife with examples of abuses of power in virtually every venue, enterprise, nation, government, organization, banking system, role of leadership and  committees both large and small.

Anywhere power is, man’s pride has played  the part of being a god in the form of despot and dictator,…even Christianity.

The Bible even records in the book of Galatians an occasion when the freedoms Christ’s cross bought us were being threatened by human regulations.

The book of Galatians was written to Christians who had begun to slip back into a moralistic form of Christianity that would appeal to self by adding to the gospel a human ceremony and making it an amendment to Christ’s sacrifice on the cross as necessary for salvation.

In fact, even the crucifixion of Jesus Christ was orchestrated, lead, and carried out by the moral elite religious leadership of Jesus time who helped pressured the Romans to carry out the cruel crucifixion of Jesus.

Only Jesus is perfect and will always be the only perfect example of who and what a Christian should be.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28,29,30

As prevalent as pride is in our world today, and given the contrast of how humble our God is, is faith in God not the logical choice for finite humans in relation to an infinite God?

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”

Hebrews 11:6

Faith is the means of coming into a relationship with Almighty God.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16

Jesus paid our sin debt. Simply pray,” Lord save me, come into my heart.” ( because God is already listening to your heart).

“Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.”

Matthew 10:32

Please tell us if you did ask God to save you. We would love to hear from you and encourage you.

His Love is Reflected in His Creation

Any artist who creates art leaves something of themselves visibly reflected in their creation.

We too can see the unique qualities of our Creator God reflected in His work.

“Since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities- his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”Romans 1:19,20

His Gentle beauty.
image

His Quiet beauty.

His Assuring Beauty.

His Majestic Beauty.

His Still Beauty.

His Grand Beauty.

His Radiant Beauty.

His Guiding Beauty.

The very fact that all people share an appreciation for beauty proves that deep inside of us are qualities that reflect the fact that we were created in His image and therefore we need God and sense Him in creation.

God is love, and deep down inside we recognize Him in His creation as our hearts respond to these messages like a love letter from a soul mate, and we stand in awe as we try to drink it all in.

We alone of all creation are given to being creative and reflect this attribute of our Creator God.

And to deny the obvious and unique qualities of God reflected in all the natural world around us, which fills us with awe and wonder, is to compromise the very integrity of our own intellect.

“The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” Psalm 53:1

He exists.
He is love.
He wants to begin a loving relationship with you through Jesus Christ.

Creator God – Reflected in His Work

Monument Valley Arizona – “The Right and Left Mittens”- Random Chance ? or Devine Design?

When I think of the universal sense of right and wrong, and that there exists a moral law, I say within myself,

there must be a moral law giver who is a righteous and just creator!

When I look at the mountains with all their majesty , I say within myself,
there must be a majestic creator!

When I observe nature and I am filled with awe by the colors in fields of flowers , forests of green, and skies of blue, I say within myself,
there must exist a beautiful creator !

When I look into the vast night sky and see the stars and think of the universe and its infinite reach, I say within myself,
We must have an infinite creator !

Anytime I hear of a great scientific discovery that fills me with wonder at all that exists I say within myself,
We must have a wonderful creator !

When I see the power of nature’s forces and think of the forces that made all that is, I think to myself,
We must have a powerful creator !

When I observe the order and harmony of themes in scientific realty, I think within my self,
We must have a creator !

And then I know why it is written,
“The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.”

DNA Is Evidence Supporting God As Creator – Intelligent Design

Language was at the beginning of life, and language is at its core

We can observe marvelous harmony between religion and science in DNA.

We know two profoundly remarkable things about the science of DNA and the Genesis creation story of the Bible. That is, Language was at the beginning of life, and language is at its core. And neither is mere coincidental chance.

Our current knowledge about DNA can only describe it as a language. Four letters make this genetic code, yet it is so complex that our greatest minds work tirelessly for years to decode its meaning, yet are only beginning to understand anything about it. At the core of all things living is a language? The Bible says that God said…and it was. Language was at the beginning of life, and language is at its core.

Such harmony illustrates that science and religion are not in opposition to each other, as some would have it appear. True unbiased science points to the credibility of the creation story.

The mathematical odds of such complexity occurring by random chance are ten to the billionth power against random chance. If you type this number in standard 12 point font, on standard typing paper and filled each sheet with zeros, each sheet being about .004 thousandths of 1 inch thick, and stacked all the sheets,one on the other, the stack of paper for this number would be about 500 feet high.

Mathematics is a tool acceptable to scientists and has rendered the random occurrence of DNA mathematically impossible even with the oldest possible age of the Earth.

As for the scientific society powers-that-be at large, and why they refuse to accept the evidence, you need only to rent an old copy of the academy award-winning movie about the life of Louis Pasteur to see an example of this kind of bias. (Black and White).

Pasteur tried to make medical scientists aware of germs, and that Doctors needed to wash their hands between surgeries and child deliveries or they would infect patients with microbes. He was touted as a fool, even after he saved the French wine industry with his Pasteurization process. They would say,” How could something so small as a microbe, (germ), make a man sick and die?” Pasteur, and anyone else for that matter, could see these small microbes under a microscope, which had been invented many years prior. The evidence was plain to see.
Pasteur was basically martyred by years of ridicule, (he had a stroke), though today scientists hail him as a hero.

Watch the first 15 seconds of this Historically accurate movie.

But the scientific society does not change its theories easily.

DNA is used in courts of law as evidence.
DNA is also evidence proving the creation story in the Bible. Each of us has detailed evidence of what God said in our own DNA.

Language was at the beginning of life, and language is at its core.

That is great science and religion.
