The Bible vs the world | Back to articles | Articles sitemap |

In today’s world I notice some people simply do not care about how humanity came to be. Where we came from and how we were created is irrelevant to many. Others have decided our existence based upon a theory and rely upon that theory so much that to them it becomes fact, even without evidence. In the world we live today, someone can simply make up a story about creation while not having any proof whatsoever to back up their claims, yet people will believe it.

Today I tell you that there are really only two options we can choose between concerning creation. Either there is a God and He created everything in existence, or there is not a God and somehow, though we cannot explain it, everything is just here by some other means.  If you factor God out of the creation equation, then you will be left with countless unanswered questions.  There will always be questions that science will never be able to answer or prove. 

Things like self-awareness, emotions and supernatural premonitions will never be explained by science.  These things are spiritual traits and forces.  Science will not be able to explain them because science is not a tool for discerning spiritual things.  Think about the feeling of love for a moment. Where does that come from? It’s inside you somewhere; you can feel it, maybe even describe it, but where does that feeling come from? Someone of the world and not of God will tell you they do not know exactly where it comes from. I say love comes from God, and it is a spiritual force that is not flesh or blood, and does not come from the body itself, but the spirit that dwells in the body.  The Bible is the tool for discerning spiritual things. From the Bible we know that self-awareness and emotions are embedded in our spirits or souls; our supernatural components, our true selves.  The Bible tells us that supernatural premonition or our sixth sense comes from the Holy Ghost, the "comforter."

"New life" is another example of something science cannot explain.   What makes a baby come alive? Our scientists can tell us what starts the process of childbirth and what happens throughout that process. We can watch what happens, but we do not know how it happens. How is new life created out of nothingness? A heart, hands, eyes, and feet will come from a single fertilized egg, but where did the life-force that’s inside that body come from? Where does that same life-force go when the body dies? Friends surly there is a God, and He created all things.

Are we willing to believe the “big bang theory?” All of a sudden there was a colossal bang, out of nothingness, and then over time the universe was created perfectly and evolution occurred naturally? I am sorry, but that is preposterous! You see, what made that big bang happen? Is it more believable that there was a big bang out of nothingness for no reason, or is it more believable that God made that big bang and He is the creator of all things? The Bible, Jesus, believers, miracles and the universe itself all bear witness of God, but what about the “Big Bang Theory?” A theory is not fact, it’s a hypothesis, suggestion, presumption, or a guess.  We are not a product of evolution, created for the world. The world was created for us.

Surly there is a God, and He is the creator of the universe. So many people choose to ignore facts. The Bible is truth, it is fact. How do we know the Bible is fact? Well first of all just the Bible’s existence and the scripture inside is considerable proof.

The Bible is God’s inspired revelation of the origin and destiny of all things. It is the most remarkable book ever made. It has a holy library of 66 books. The Bible has 40 different authors from all walks of life: shepherds, farmers, tent-makers, physicians, fishermen, priests, philosophers and kings. Despite all these differences in occupation, and the span of years it took to write it ( It was written over a period of 1,500 years, from around 1450 B.C. (the time of Moses) to about 100 A.D. [following the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ]), the Bible is an extremely unified, and consistent book. Also regardless of many attempts to destroy the Bible, it still remains today.  The Bible was originally written in three languages: Aramaic, Hebrew then Koine Greek however has now been translated in many of the world's languages (over 1,200!). The Bible also remains to be the number one selling book of all time.

The literature inside the Bible contains history, biographies, poetry, laws, parables, proverbial sayings, hymns, directions for worship, riddles, prophesy, allegories, and many other categories.  Surly it is incredible that 66 books came together to make one consistent book. Look at how many prophesies in the Bible have been fulfilled! There is not one prophesy that has been proven to be untrue. Some may have not come to pass yet, but no one person can prove that any are untrue.

The Bible is a collection of books that reveal the mind of God, the state of mankind, the way to salvation, the destiny or fate of sinners, and the joy and security of believers. The doctrines in the Bible are Holy, its histories true, and its decisions undeniable. The Bible contains light to direct you, and comfort to help you. The Bible is our spiritual supplies, our map, our compass, our shield, and our sword. Jesus Christ is the Bible’s ultimate subject, the light of this world and our only doorway to salvation.

The Bible is given to us in this life, will be fully revealed to us at judgment and will stand supreme forever. Read it to be wise, believe it to stay safe, and practice it continually to be holy. Let the Bible fill your memory, rule over your heart, guide your feet in righteousness, and build and solidify your faith.  The Bible is truly a mine of wealth, a source of health, and a fountain of happiness, pleasure and joy. Here on earth and more so in heaven, followers of Jesus Christ and the Bible will be rewarded for the least to the greatest of their works. Finally all who have altered, tampered, or corrupted the Bible shall be condemned.

Following the Bible will prove itself to you. Revelation will be acquired, knowledge will grow and multiply. The Bible will work wonders in this life providing it is acted upon and obeyed in faith and sincerity. Out of all religions, Christianity provides the most complete and best explanation of this world and the world to come. There is only one God, there is only one true religion, and that is Christianity. There cannot be more then one God, or more then one true religion. Christianity contradicts all other religions. Two plus two only equals four, it cannot also equal ten. In the same manner Christianity and any other religion cannot mix. They cannot be different but lead to the same God.

God is real, He is the creator, I tell you the truth. Jesus died for us so that we may be reconciled with God. 1 Corinthians15:19 says: “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

If there is no God then there is no Jesus. If there is no God, then there is no heaven. If there is no God, and there is no Jesus, and there is no heaven, there we would be all men and women most miserable, for the life we are living now would be all that we have. If this were true there would be no true meaning of life.

I tell you that life was not supposed to be as we know it now. However because we have sinned, the meaning of life has changed. I tell you that the meaning of life is to find our way back to God through Jesus, before we die. The meaning of this life is to prove that we are worthy of real life, eternal life, life without sorrow, life with God, forever.

Take hold of this and understand it. We have but one chance, but one life to get things right. Surly there is more then just this life. Choose to believe in Jesus, call on Him and ask Him into your heart. God will not ignore you, He knows all your thoughts, and He hears everything you say. He has placed His book here for you, so that you may know the truth, so that you may know His love for you. He has put the Bible here as your map.

Remember the Bible is like the law of gravity. If you were to jump off a building and ignore the law of gravity, not believing in it, gravity would still take effect and you would still fall, even if you were convinced in your mind it didn’t exist. In the same way, even if you choose to not believe in the book of the law, the Bible, it doesn’t mean that God doesn’t exist. Not believing in God, Jesus, and the Bible won’t make them invalid, but will condemn you instead.

Choose to believe, choose to consider, and choose to accept the Bible as truth. If you read and follow God’s Word, the Bible, it will prove itself, to you!
