“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth
and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God” (Psalm 90:2).
God is infinite—He has no
beginning (He was never born),
and He has no end (He can never
die). He is the eternal Creator of
all things—space, matter and even
Some people don’t believe what
the Bible says about God—they
even deny He exists! The Bible tells
us that these people deliberately reject
the Creator (2 Peter 3:5). As a result,
they are blinded to the evidence around
us that is consistent with God’s
existence. For example . . .
- Unlike the “Energizer Bunny,” which just keeps
going and going on its own power (or so the ad
would have you believe), the universe is running out
of available energy and is becoming more chaotic, or
disorderly, as time goes on. Eventually, there will be no
more energy available
throughout the universe
to accomplish any work.
So where did all the
original available energy
come from? How was
it “wound up” initially?
Someone outside of
the universe had to
have created it orderly
in the beginning—that
Someone was God.
- Our bodies are made up of trillions of cells. Just one
of those cells contains enough information about
who we are to fill 500,000 close-typed pages! Scientists
who study DNA (or deoxyribonucleic acid—a special large
molecule that stores all that information in our cells)
have not observed huge amounts of new information
originating by chance as it is passed from parent to child.
The information stored in our DNA is only rearranged
or decreased. So where did the information in all living
things come from in the first place? Current scientific
observations show that information can only come from
a source of intelligence, ultimately. Since God is infinitely intelligent, it makes sense that He is the Author of all the
- Those who believe that molecules have evolved into
man (contrary to modern scientific observation
which shows it
just isn’t possible)
must also believe
that the universe
is billions of years
old. Yet there is
that is consistent
with the Bible’s
teaching that the
universe has not
been around for
billions of years,
but was created by
God around 6,000
- Many tribes and nations share stories or legends
similar to the original, unchanged accounts of
creation, Noah’s Flood and the break-up of the people at
Babel found in the Bible. Why is this so? The Bible explains
it! As Noah’s descendants spread around the earth after
the Flood, they took the knowledge of creation and the
Flood with them, but the stories have gradually changed
over the years. Also, scientists are finding that there is
no significant difference between the various so-called
“races” of people. This is consistent with the Bible’s
teaching that there is only one “race”—all humans are
descendants of Adam.
The Bible says those who deny God are without excuse, since the creation makes it plain that there is an all-powerful
God, as shown by the above examples (Romans 1:20).
