I have been immersed into the world of apologetics the past few days. I have been gathering cosmological and biological evidences for the existence of God. Sunday I begin a series called, "Why I Believe." My problem is not gathering enough information for the series of messages. The issue is what part of the mounds of evidence for God's existence do I present? I have a renewed confidence in the Psalmist's statement, "The fool has said in his heart, There is no God." Psalm 53:1
The tremendous weight of evidence for an intelligent Creator shouts to anyone who is willing to listen, "The heavens declare the glory of God!" Psalm 53:1
So why do many scientists insist upon the empty and circular logic that matter came out of nothing. It is not because they aren't intelligent. It is not because they are not educated. Allow me to have a representative from their world to speak on the subject of the existence of God. Esteemed evolutionist and scientist Professor D.M.S. Watson said, "Evolution is accepted not because it has been observed to occur or can be proved by logically coherent evidence to be true, but because the only alternative - special creation (a Creator) - is clearly incredible."
So it is the unwillingness to accept the existence of God that causes them to make leaps of faith when it comes to the creation of matter and intelligent design. They simply do not want to believe there is an Entity greater than science or themselves. The simple truth is: an object requires an objective creator, art requires an artist and intelligent design demands an intelligent Designer.
"Since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead." Romans 1:20
I look forward to seeing you Sunday as we come together to worship our Great Creator! Until then, look up!
