Some people actually believe this is how the universe began: That at one point in time all the matter in the universe was condensed into one tiny particle. Of course you say, “Only a complete fool would suggest that even this planet we live on was at one time condensed into the size of a dot, never mind the whole universe”. And you’re probably thinking, “You’re winding me up with an April Fools joke, no one would be so foolish to believe such an absurdity as that.”
But there’s more, some even believe that in the beginning, there was nothing, no time, no space, no matter, and then nothing exploded, and became the organised universe. And you’re probably thinking “Don’t be silly, if nothing exploded, then nothing exploded, it’s as simple as that.”
What’s more: Your body is made up of tiny cells and in Charles Darwin’s day they wrongly thought these cells were made up of just 3 or 4 bits of plasma randomly lumped together, but we now know what is deemed as a “simple” cell is more complexly designed than a space shuttle, and these fundamentalist evolutionists believe that our highly complex cells (that you have to magnify the size of a city to see all the working thereof), they believe they created and designed themselves, they came together they say, as an accident of nature. You say, "That’s madness, if someone claimed even Stonehenge, which is just a group of large stones in a circle, was a result of random chance, then I would have to conclude they were barking, never mind something as complex as the cell."
That’s not all. Those who follow the evolutionist religion, actually think D.N.A. which is a highly complex language containing the designs and workings of your body, came about by an accident of nature. You say, “That’s logically debunked. Sure if you see on a beach, ripples in the sand you conclude the tide has made them, but if you see written in the sand “John loves Katy” with a big heart around it, you instantly know someone has wrote it, only an idiot would suggest that it came about by chance, so to suggest that D.N.A. the most complex language we have observed in the universe came about by chance is ridiculous. Where there is a language you need an intelligence to write it, and an intelligence to read it.”
But there’s more still. These evolutionist extremists actually believe what they believe by a giant leap of blind faith. There is still not one jot of evidence for evolution, in fact there are several unclaimed high cash rewards for the first person to give scientific evidence. But you say “So why do so many people believe in it?”
Well the answer is, most have been taught evolution as if it’s a fact, and have not really thought it through and examined how wacky the claims are. Not only that, but false claims are often deceitfully presented as evidence. For example Lucy the Australopithecine is presented as a half-man/half-ape with human hands and feet, yet we now know that Lucy was nothing more than a 3 foot chimpanzee with ape hands and feet. From finding one tooth, evolutionists produced Nebraska man, and they drew many drawings in text books, and put wax figures in museums, of what they deemed a half ape/half human transitional form. You may ask “How do they know all that from just one tooth?” The answer is they don't, they just make it up, and eventually the rest of the skeleton was found and it turned out to be an extinct pig.
Neanderthal is often presented as an ape type human, but we now know, he was nothing more than a fully human old man with rickets. The Miller-Urey experiment claimed to have created life from non-life, in actual fact it created nothing more than tar, poisonous to life. Other misleading false claims are presented like the black and white moths, yet think about it, they’re still 100% moths, they have not turned into a bird or a bee. We have black and white people, but that does not make them any less human. Incidentally Charles Darwin thought so, he called black people “savages”. Adolf Hitler murdering six million Jews, Joseph Stalin murdering thousands of Polish P.O.W.s were all consistent with the evolutionary fairy tale they believed in. Today there is not one Tasmanian aborigine left, as these fellow human beings were all murdered by evolutionists who claimed they were half-ape, because of a different skin colour. Such are the dangers of this extremists belief in evolution.
But if evolution is a Fairy Tale For Grown-Ups Then What Is Truth?
“What is truth?” is the same question Pontius Pilate asked Jesus of Nazareth 2000 years ago. Pilate tried to wash his hands of Jesus Christ, and be indifferent about Him but is now in Hell. Jesus said “He who is not with me is against me.” Mt 12:30. There is no neutral ground when it comes to Jesus Christ.
If we were not made by an accident of nature, then there is no other alternative than we were created.
Often you hear people today claim the Bible is just a Book written by men and can’t be proven. But that’s simply not true. The Bible has the inbuilt proof of prophecy. It predicts the future far in advance and has always been 100% accurate in doing so. One example is, Psalm 22, it is a long and detailed prophecy of the Messiah on the cross. In verse 16, it says “they pierced my hands and my feet” obviously a reference to the nails on the cross, yet the significance of this is that this prophecy was written 1000 years Before Christ and any form of crucifixion was not even invented for another 400 years until 600 B.C. and then it was only hands, the feet came much later. And the Bible is full of detailed and accurate prophecies like this.
Your Creator has given each person a conscience to know right from wrong.
Most people today think, “Yes I know I have sinned but if God is love [which He is], then can’t He just forgive and let everyone into Heaven?” But think about that! If a judge went light on a child killer or a rapist, claiming he was “merciful”, then no-one would think that judge was kind, and loving, but there would be a national outcry that that judge is evil and corrupt. Nor does doing good deeds pay off our sins. That’s like getting a speeding fine and asking the judge to be merciful and let you off because you drive safely most of the time. The judge would say “so you should drive safely, but I have to punish you for the crime you have committed”. The Bible speaks of our sin as a debt, as in a monitory debt, and that every time you sin you are treasuring up wrath to be revealed against you on the Day of Judgement. (Rom 2:5). Because God is infinitely love and infinitely just, He will punish all sin wherever it’s found. No sin in the universe will be left unpaid for. Jesus said in Revelation 21:8: “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
God’s justice is a Holy Justice and there is no other justice like His. One lie is enough to damn you to Hell for all eternity. But God’s love is a Holy Love and there is no other love like His.
There is one way, and only one way to be saved from the wrath to come, and be forgiven of all your sin.
Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (Jn 14:6), He didn’t say one of many ways, but He is the way, the only way to Heaven. That means you can’t get to Heaven by the Pope, or Mohammed, or by doing ‘good deeds’. The only way to Heaven is by Jesus Christ.
2000 years ago the all powerful God who created this universe entered into His own Creation. He was born of a virgin, and then led a sinless life, Jesus did miracles to prove His claims, He healed incurable diseases, made the blind see, the deaf hear, He walked on water, and calmed the wind and the waves by the command of His voice. Then He willingly sacrificed His life, by suffering and dieing on a cross, to pay the penalty in full for your sin. Then on the third Day, He rose from the dead, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most attested fact of antiquity. Christ’s resurrection changed history, but will it change you? Death and the grave could not hold Jesus Christ, and if you will come to Him and have the free gift of eternal life, then death and the grave will have no hold on you. Whoever you are, whatever you have done, "now is the accepted time, today is the day of salvation", Jesus offers complete pardon, total forgiveness of sins, to all who will come to Him. “Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts” (Isa 55:6-7). What are you waiting for? Tomorrow may be too late. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Rom 10:13). Cry out to Jesus and He will save you. Jesus offers you eternal life as a free gift. “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus” Rom 8:1
