Do We Live In An Accidental Universe?

It is unclear how any person can live on this good earth and enjoy all of the wonderful gifts it presents us with, without a knowledge that everything came to us by an Infinitely Intelligent, Magnanimously Loving God.

Consider how impossible it is that all of the elements and materials that we are able to build things from and use to make a good life on earth, were placed on this planet on purpose. Left to its own there is no naturalistic process that could have evolved an earth with the precise elements that were necessary to build homes, cars, phones, medical equipment, roads, schools, ships, planes, cars, and construction equipment. Someone created the earth perfectly for us and placed everything we would need to live and flourish on this planet. This is no accident, we are no accident.

Proving the Existence of God

The fundamental question that must be asked regarding whether or not God exists, is what kind of evidence there is to validate such an assertion?

I have spent more than forty years seeking, examining, and documenting the evidence for God. It is my professional opinion as a researcher, and critical author, that the evidence for the existence of a singular, transcendent, unlimited Being, is substantial, empirical, and conclusive. Those who present an argument that there is no evidence for God are simply misinformed or willfully ignorant. It is impossible to maintain this position due to the massive amount of evidence that resides within the reach of any interested person. Continue reading “Proving the Existence of God”

The Ease Of Proving God Exists From Empirical Evidence

COPYRIGHT WARNING

In the discussion of God’s existence, the evidence that proves this certainty is resident within a variety of sources. This brief article notes a short list of the hundreds that are available in order to make the most logical and empirical conclusions in the smallest space possible. Let us begin with a logical examination of the facts: Continue reading “The Ease Of Proving God Exists From Empirical Evidence”

Honest Men: An Expositional Treatise Of The Life, Death, And Resurrection Of Jesus

The events that took place during the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ are empirically validated by history. Today, any person can know for certain that the New Testament narrative regarding Jesus, is true, accurate, and honest. This book is a reasoned and intelligent examination of these events through the lens of history.

Many people are unaware that there are hundreds of non-biblical documents which describe Jesus of Nazareth as present in Jerusalem during the same period of history that the New Testament Gospels describe Him. These records from the Roman Senate, Jewish Talmud, and various other Greek sources, fully validate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, in cooperation with the Gospel narratives.

Jesus claimed that all of the events that took place during His appearance on earth were predicted in the pages of the Old Testament. Beginning with Moses, through the Prophets, and the Psalms, incredible and impossible predictions were made concerning the Messiah.

When Jesus was resurrected on the third day, He stood in the midst of His disciples and they were deeply troubled. They found it impossible to believe that the man standing there before them was really the same Jesus that they had seen crucified. In response, Jesus said to them:

“Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day.”

Then Jesus said to them:

“These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me”

And then Jesus “opened their understanding so that they could comprehend the Scriptures.”

What were these ancient scriptures that Jesus recounted to the disciples that proved that He had fulfilled all 400 of the Messianic Prophecies and was therefore the true Messiah?

They are the very same prophecies that are contained within this book. From the beginning of the Bible, through every page that predicted and described the Messiah, “Honest Men” recounts all the events that concern the coming of Jesus into the world.

“This book will take you through every part of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, in context with all the Old Testament scriptures. By the time that you finish this book, your knowledge and understanding for who Jesus really is and what He has accomplished for you, will be immensely magnified.” -M.L. Lladas

Forty-two years in the making, this is the singular publication that contains all of the important events of Jesus’ time here on earth and places you alongside Him as one of His disciples as He explains everything that He did.

Who Created God?

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Who Created God?The Atheists asks the question, “Who created God?,” assuming that His existence necessitated a cause.

This is a fundamental error that atheists make in their inability to perceive God. They imagine that God must be created. Those who do believe in God, do not believe in a God who came into existence at some point in time. In this manner, Christians also do not believe in the kind of God that the atheists do not believe in.

The fallacy of insisting that God must have a creator Himself, runs an illogical circle of never-ending god’s who were each made by a god before them. In order for one who is truly God to exist, He must be singular and uncreated.

Let us consider this premise: The term “God,” is defined as a Being who is perfect in every regard. Any being who is not perfect would not be God, with a big “G,” he would simply be one god amongst many god’s, little “g.”

Since there can only be one God (big G), this first premise requires that He must be perfect in every regard, incapable of error or wrongful actions. If God were able to commit error, He would not be perfect, and therefore he could not be God. Continue reading “Who Created God?”

God Is Necessary For The Universe To Exist

COPYRIGHT WARNING

With all of the wonders of science and astronomy today, no person can tell us how the universe came into being from nothing. Many theories are conjectured and put forth regarding the existence of the “multiverse,” while no evidence for any other universes actually exists. Since we cannot see beyond our present cosmological structure, it is impossible to state categorically that many others certainly exist. The entire purpose for introducing the multiverse theory was to camouflage the obvious truth that our universe exists by design. Until scientists are able to prove by scientific methods that there are trillions of other universes, in addition to our own, we must—as intelligent men and women, deny this mystical materialistic answer for our existence.

The theory of Occam’s Razor defines the simplest and most obvious answer as the often correct conclusion.[1] No person views a one-hundred and four story skyscraper and questions how it came into existence. It is understood that a mind conceived this building. Engineers designed its structure. Builders assembled the components that were required to erect this great edifice. Anyone who would state that the Freedom Tower in New York City came into existence on its own, would be ignored or laughed to scorn. The obvious conclusion is that someone made it.

People Who Display the Greatest Resistance to God, Are Often the Closest to Salvation

COPYRIGHT WARINING

See and Find Me

It is interesting that a person will search out Christian web sites where evidence for God is put forth, in order to dispute His existence. A person who genuinely does not believe something, does not need to convince others. When a matter is settled in our mind, we are finished with the struggle to understand it.

The fact that a person is vigorously active in visiting the web sites of those who disagree with them, is a sign that this person is really not that convinced that their position is correct. I have been a follower of Jesus for over 40 years. In times past, when I was still developing my thoughts, I would often visit the sites of atheists and seek a dialogue with those who frequent these places. As I realized that what I believed about God, was the truth, I no longer needed to seek affirmation from those who do not believe.

It is a fact that the people who are often the most vocal against God, are individuals who are the closest to surrendering their lives to Him. As a person becomes more and more convinced by the evidence for God, they will often become quite militant in their opposition of those who do believe. I have observed this phenomenon quite often in the types of comments that are made on this web site, in response to articles that I have written.

The Atheist's Inability To Comprehend God

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Those Who Deny God, Cannot Understand Him

A human being is made up of three components; body, soul, and Spirit. When a person is born, the body is preeminent, it rules the life of the person. Whatever the body wants, it expresses through the desires of the flesh. The soul is the inhabitation of the emotions, where a person expresses their thoughts, feelings and emotions. The spirit, which is the only part of man that can know and understand God, is dead because of sin.[1]

When Jesus told Nicodemus, in John chapter 3, that “you must be “born again,” He was describing the spirit. In order for any person to understand God, or to comprehend His word, first his spirit must be born again, into a new relationship with God. Until our sins are dealt with and removed by God, it is impossible for us to have a relationship with God.[2]

Jesus death on the cross, paid for the sins of all people, for all time. All those who are willing to repent from their sins and come to Jesus for the forgiveness of their sins, are born again—into this new spiritual life.[3]

This is one of the preeminent differences between Biblical Christianity and religion. The religions of man ignore the spiritual side of man, regarding sin, repentance and the need to experience a new life in the spirit. Man’s religion requires conformance into a set of rules or conduct. The Bible reveals that there are no rules that any person can keep that will make them acceptable to God. It is by a reliance upon what Jesus has accomplish that God will accept any person.[4]

To those who do not know God, who have yet to experience this new birth of the spirit, these things are difficult to comprehend. Some even scoff at this possibility and find it impossible to believe. Nevertheless, this is what the text of the New Testament reveals. Continue reading “The Atheist's Inability To Comprehend God”

Refuting “The Top 10 Reasons I Don't Believe in God,” by Greta Christina

COPYRIGHT WARNING

If a concise search is made to discover the reasons why people do not believe in God, it quickly becomes evident that every point of objection made by the atheist, is easily overcome with logic and reason. As I read through the following: “The Top 10 Reasons I Don’t Believe in God” by Greta Christina, it became clear that the author is simply making affirmation regarding things that she has little or no knowledge of.

It is common in life for persons to make inaccurate or incorrect statements about persons or matters to which they have very little knowledge.

These arguments are based largely on speculation and conjecture, rather than actual facts. It appears that this author is greatly misinformed about the subject that she attempts to write about as an instant expert. It is common amongst the atheists to regurgitate the statements of others before them, who were also in error regarding their statements. As an object lesson in how opaque the arguments against the existence of God are, I will give answers these to objections. In these responses I will demonstrate precisely how the atheist and skeptic consistently fail to demonstrate a compelling argument against the existence of God.

The following 10 objections to God are made by author, Greta Christina, in her book: But “Does God exist?” Continue reading “Refuting “The Top 10 Reasons I Don't Believe in God,” by Greta Christina”
