It wasn’t an accident for sure. It did not happen because of random events or because “aliens” seeded our world with life. Regardless of the opinion of those in the scientific community, it is my belief that God Himself did create this universe and everything in it exactly the way it is spelled out in the book of Genesis. I know about the so-called debate that happened between those of opposing viewpoints this week and as scientists try to point to facts that they can hold in their hands, it seems that the evidence points toward their viewpoint.
But, God can create with His Word and He can do so in such a way that the whole universe appears to be older than it is. Remember, if you have read the book of Genesis, that Adam was created from the mud and given the breath of Life from God. It does not say that God spoke him into existence as a baby, he was formed as a full-grown man. When God created the great light to rule the day, it was formed as the sun that we see today.
There can be a debate on these things if you wish, you can dispute them all that you want. I really don’t care if you believe them or not, but God gave the account to Moses to write down and since He doesn’t lie, then it is the truth. Our world was created by God to be the world that He wanted to put us on, to live on, to nurture it and the life that He placed on it. Our responsibility is to seek Him and to do that which we are able to do for Him.
Yes, it is hard or nearly impossible for those who are not Christians to see and understand what God has given us outside the context of the One that has given us everything . Think about the gravity that holds the atmosphere here on Earth and the composition of the air that you breathe, all of these were done for life as God created it to be here.
I know that there are those who will dispute this and get all bent out of shape because of the “absolute” beliefs that I have because of my beliefs in God and His Word and that is fine. I have no problem with your opinion of me or my beliefs. The point which I am trying to get across is this: “What if the Bible and all of its claims are true?”; if you discount the possibility of any of it because you don’t want it to be true, then when Jesus comes back to judge the world, where will you be?
It won’t make any difference about the creation of the world if you choose to believe that everything evolved from a cloud of dust and gas into the solar system that we have today. The difference will be in your eternal life if you choose to reject Jesus and His effect on life itself! God loves each sinner in the world and He loved each of us from the beginning enough that He sent Jesus into the world to be the pure sacrifice which paid the price for your life.
Whether you choose to accept it or not is that which determines your eternity! God gives all, even angels, free choice to serve or not. Choose to serve Him and your eternity and the rewards which come with it are certain, choose not to serve Him and the punishment for eternity is also certain, but it is still your choice which determines your place in eternity.
