Love is a crazy thing.
If a man is made to love a woman,
I should have given my love to all women I've known equally.
God’s Existence in Question! Creation of the Earth:
The development of science today put the existence of God into question more than ever. As human explored and conquered the universe/space, they began to claim (with their theory) that the universe/earth is/was created/formed by itself leaving God aside.
According to Stephen Hawking, "Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist."
If there is nothing, then how is it possible that it become something, like this big earth that holds more than 6 billion of men and other non-living and living creatures?
Scientist(s) had claimed that “the earth was formed around 4.54 billion years ago by accretion from the solar nebula. Volcanic outgassing probably created the primordial atmosphere and then the ocean; but the atmosphere contained almost no oxygen and so would have been toxic to most modern life including humans. Much of the earth was molten because of frequent collisions with other bodies which led to extreme volcanism. A ‘giant impact’ collision with a planet-sized body is thought to have been responsible form forming the moon. Over time, the earth cooled, causing the formation of a solid crust, and allowing liquid water to exist on the surface.” (The above statement is extracted from Wikipedia). They tried to explain but stumble along the way. If they’re so certain and convinced about their theory, the used of ‘probably’ or ‘is thought to have’ on their thesis is biased and traitorous.
“Approximately 4.6 billion years ago, the solar system was a cloud of dust and gas known as a solar nebula. Gravity collapsed the material in on itself as it began to spin, forming the sun in the center of the nebula. With the rise of the sun, the remaining material began to clump up. Small particles drew together, bound by the force of gravity, into larger particles. The solar wind swept away lighter elements, such as hydrogen and helium, from the closer regions, leaving only heavy, rock materials to create smaller terrestrial worlds like Earth. But further away, solar winds had less impact on lighter element, allowing them to coalesce into gas giants. In this way, asteroids, comets, planets, and moons were created.” (Extracted from Space.com). Those fans of science or atheist habitually questioned on ‘Who created God if He created the earth or all things?’ Now I would like to ask them (alike their question), ‘How dust and gas are formed prior to the creation of the universe? If God cannot create thing out of nothing, what is the element behind the formation of dust and gas (solar nebula), because it cannot exist by itself according to their beliefs.
The problem of Mathematics can be solve by using certain mathematical formula. The experiments of science can be done by following certain procedure. But the existence or nonexistence of God can never be explain by formula or procedure. We cannot question about God with the earthly thing(s) because He is above all things. Science tried to explain the creation of the universe in different assumptions whereas Christian has a single supposition that God created it.
Science also claimed that human being is an evolution of an ape. Let's assumed they were right (as of now). If their assumption is right, we, human being should have a single language/tongue regardless of different races or distances of dwelling. For Example: It is impossible that a lion from America roar and growl in Africa. Or a tiger from Europe growl and of Asia neigh. But we human being have more than ten of thousands of languages across the globe. Why? It is clearly mentioned in the Bible (read Genesis 11:1-9) that God mixed up the language of the people so that they should stop building what they call tower that reaches the sky. From there, on a single day, a single tongue became thousands of tongue.
And why we are different from any other animal? Why are we so advance in everything from any other animals? An ape cannot speak no matter how many years it tries. It is totally unfair to claim that human beings are the descendant of the apes. Though small and weak we are, we controlled the animals and everything on earth because God created human being differently. He created us in the resemble of God himself.
God said, ‘Now we will make human beings; they will be like us and resemble us. They will have power over the fish, the birds, and all the animals, domestic and wild, large and small……… He created them male and female, blessed them, and said, “Have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth and bring it under their control. I am putting you in charge of the fish, the birds, and all the wild animals.” Genesis 1: 26- 29.
Because God make us different from any other living creatures, we can think what they cannot think. We can feel what they cannot felt. We can do what they cannot do. And we controlled them all because God gave us the power to do so. If not, a lion can easily pound us to dead within a minute of fighting. An elephant can crush us in a second. But we controlled even the strongest of animal because God make us better than them. He did not gave the power of common sense and intelligence to the animals so that human being should rule over them.
In Genesis 9: 8-17 tells us about the covenant God made with the world through Noah.
“…….never again will a flood destroy the earth. As a sign of this everlasting covenant which I am making with you and with all the living beings, I am putting my bow in the clouds. It will be the sign of my covenant with the world.” Yet, science stated that, “A rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky.” Scientist had claimed and made us believe that rainbow is nothing to do with God’s covenant (to men that He would never again destroy the world with flood) but just a refraction of sunray through droplet of water.
If that’s so, a proper explanation would be needed on how a circular rainbow is formed around the sun in the sunny (cloudless) day? Because sometime, we can see a circular rainbow around the sun during sunny day (especially midday).
We all knew that there can be no rain without cloud in the sky. Likewise, there can be no droplet of water where there is no cloud; which means that there can be no rainbow when the sky is cloudless for more than an hour or more. Yet, despite this, we can see rainbow around the sun during cloudless day sometime. They claimed and named the circular rainbow as the 22°HALO. However, they couldn’t gave enough evidence on how and what it is made up of. According to my ancestor, it is believe that when a good person died, the rainbow appeared in honor of him/her. True or Untrue it may be but I would rather believe in their theory than to admit that rainbow is nothing to do with God.
Scientist had explained that lightning is a sudden electrostatic discharge during an electrical storm between electrically charged regions of a cloud (called intra-cloud lightning or IC) between that cloud and another cloud (CC lightning), or between a cloud and the group (CG lightning). The charged regions in the atmosphere temporarily equalize themselves through this discharge referred to as a strike if it hits an object on the ground and a flash, if it occurs within a cloud. But some people have an evidence that lightning is an axe-like shape unidentified metal, heavy and dark in colour. It is not possible for a cloud to hold such heavy object without God doing it.
From the smallest invention of safety pin to the biggest of today’s technology, God gave us insight and inspiration to think and created what other living creatures cannot create. Now, that we became advanced in every sphere, it is unfair to claim that a pupil is greater than the master, for when we claim God to be no existed, we claimed ourselves as the greatest in the world.
If you’re still doubting it, Salvation alone can make your sense understand the fact; the existence of God.
The existence of God would be meaningless and empty or He doesn’t exist if He offers no salvation to men. This salvation is the very reason Jesus came into this world. ‘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. And we, Christian believed in Jesus for this salvation.
And what is salvation? In general term, it is ‘being saved from danger, loss or harm’. In Christian term, it is ‘being saved from evil and to live in paradise with God eternally’.
Again, if this salvation is just for a period of time and offer no eternity, this salvation is as ordinary as a protection offered by something or somebody during one’s lifetime. And our belief in salvation would mean nothing but a propaganda.
The salvation we believe is the eternal life with pure happiness, love and peace, free from all danger, destruction, anger, shame, hatred, jealousy, hypocrisy and so on. And to obtain this salvation, we are told to be honest, obedient, humble, kind, love one another, help the helpless, stay away from sin, and above all, to believe in God and in Jesus. If there is no salvation, why should we preach of humanity? Why should we feel guilty when we do something wrong? We feel guilty because we have soul, unlike other living creatures. And it is our soul, the costliest thing on earth that God did not want to loss. And for this reason, God endow upon us, the salvation which cannot be purchase by any amount of money and riches in the world.
For once, let us assumed that there is no God, which mean there is no salvation. And if there is no salvation, it is unnecessary to live and try to live a pure life. Because when we died, that is the end of us. So, if there is no salvation, why should we suffer of being poor? We can rob and enjoy its fruits. Why should we afraid of being called as bad person? Why should we have sense of humanity? We can indulge in sexual immorality, kill anybody for our own good because there will be no soul if there is no salvation, need no toil hard to earn our daily bread as we can rob others, need no respect anybody because they are just as we are. When we were living, enjoying ourselves to the fullest no matter how bad it is, is the best way because tomorrow we will die and gone forever. Science, no matter how advanced in technology, can obtain no salvation for us. But, as we knew that there is God and His salvation, we preach about humanity. There is no theory or formula to proof that there is no God.
