Most of those who are well versed in worldly understanding seem to think that it is not logical to believe in God, but just the opposite is true. Not only is it logical to believe in God, but the only God that is possible is the God of the Bible.
I have found that in order to understand anything it is necessary to start with the very basics. When I question something, and I question everything, usually I must work toward simplifying the question and not accept what is said. In other words I must first determine if what I think I know is true before I can build on it; I work backwards instead of forward.
Take the universe as an example. Working backwards it seems to me that there must be something that has and will always exist. The Bible says that something is God. If I did not believe in God wouldn’t I believe that it is the universe that always existed and will always exists? If the universe didn’t always exist then something or someone would have to have created it and if it was someone it would have to be a God because no man could do such an awesome thing, nor could there even be a man before there was a universe.
Those who do not want to believe in God have invented the Big Bang theory to explain the existence of the universe. It really doesn’t make much sense to think an explosion could take place in such a great field of gravity that would exist when all of the matter in the universe was gathered together, but just to keep from auguring the possibility suppose it could.
If the Big Bang theory were true then in order for the universe to always exist at some point all of the matter in the universe would have to be re-gathered to one place. That creates a problem that we can see is not possible. We can not see into the past clearly, but we can see what is happening today and the cause of the end of the universe is clear.
Looking into the sky at night we can see the destruction of the universe. The light from the stars is mass being destroyed. The only way energy is produced is by the destruction of matter. Matter is made of energy locked into a matrix. Once that matrix is broken it is not possible to reestablish it. Einstein was proved right when the Atomic Bomb worked, matter is made of energy, but matter is Humpty Dumpty it can not be reassembled. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men can not put matter together again: nor does nature.
There are some scientist that claim it is done in a cyclotron, but if matter must be used in the process and more matter is destroyed than produced then one can not claim matter was created. It is only a residue of the process.
Something or Someone must have created matter by locking energy into the various matrixes that we know as matter. Massive amounts of matter are being destroyed to produce energy, but no where in the universe is energy being reformed into matter and it would have to if the universe were never ending. Understanding this one can discern the universe is fading away.
Then one who is questioning in truth would have to contemplate where energy came from, for without energy there could be no matter.
Those that have read much of what I have said already know this and they have probably have read this far just to see why I said the only God that is possible is the God of the Bible. Well this post has become too long, so I will explain my conclusion in my next post. Don’t you just hate that?
