The Truth is...

It is interesting to discover how many people say they believe in science and yet reject anything miraculous. For someone who takes great pride in being rational and reasonable, this is an irrational worldview because the prevailing scientific theory is that the universe along with space, time and matter, all came from an inconceivable miracle called the "Big Bang". There is no valid scientific explanation for this miracle. This is only the first in a series of miracles required by science to bring us to the conscious state of mind where we can can even consider where we came from. If you think that we are the product of chemical reactions, then you must also believe that everything is predetermined and that your perception of free thought is nothing more than an illusion or a chemical reaction. After a series of many other highly improbable events, non-living material must miraculously become living complete with DNA specific coded information. These two incredible miracles must happen before you can even consider the possibility of macro-evolution. Once you admit that miracles are required to bring us to our current state of consciousness, science becomes an inadequate explanation. Let's contrast this with the only other worldview that also agrees with our scientific observations

In the beginning (the creation of time) God created the heaven (space) and the earth (matter). No matter how hard you try to suppress and rationalize, deep down you know you have a moral conscience and that it came from God. Search your feelings, you know it to be true. You also know that this world is broken and that mankind will never achieve peace even though we all deeply desire it. You can point to strawmen objections all day long trying to justify your non-belief. If I cleared up all the lies and answered every question you ever had concerning God and the Bible, would you believe or would you just look for more questions? Are you really looking for the Truth? Can you be honest and see that you are not unbiased or neutral on this question? Admit that you want to be the judge of what you think is right and wrong or good and evil. But without God, nothing can be truly good or evil because there could not be any absolute standard. Everything would be relative and every person would decide what they think is right or wrong based on their feelings at the time. What you do not realize is that you have become a slave to sin and the self-pride and momentary pleasure that it can bring. You think you are right in your judgments but your conscience has been numbed because you have turned away from the truth. Your internal compass no longer points to an absolute trustworthy location (God), instead it always points to you. This is why you think you are on the right path when you are really headed for destruction. What you cannot comprehend is the change that happens when you give up control of your life along with everything that God's says is displeasing to Him and become, "Born Again". If you would humbly step towards the light, you will start to understand the Holiness of God and look at the world through an eternal perspective. When you get a glimpse of His Holiness, then and only then, will you understand why Jesus had to die and why we can never stand in God's presence on our own merit. This is why God sent Jesus to make a way, when there was no way we could join God in His sinless Heaven. It is why Jesus is the only way. This is why rejecting Jesus and all that He did for us, has such severe consequences, eternal separation from God into darkness.
