Why I believe God Created the Heavens and the Earth
This question always leads to profuse name calling and or flagging of my comments by the atheists.
Well, since the atheists have (no answers) for this question I shall pose some reasons why 98% of the worlds populations has a belief in God and Creation
Let it be known also that only 2% of the worlds population are atheists.
Perhaps this explains why:
Genesis 1:1-31 – In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Genesis 1:2 – And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Jeremiah 4:23 – I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.
Isaiah 45:18 – For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
Genesis 2:19 – And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
Exodus 20:11 – For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Genesis 2:1-25 – Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
Isaiah 45:12 – I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.
Colossians 1:16 – For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
John 1:1 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Then came the Flood of Noah's time.
Isaiah 65:17 – For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
Genesis 1:28 – And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 – All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
My Faith in a Creator God is based on these scriptures and others that have profoundly affected my life on this Earth in a most wonderful way, and until my atheist friends can explain to me where the 'Stuff' came from that went 'Bang' and Created this Universe I will hold to the best explanation mankind has been able to come up with thus far.
The Bible tells us that in the last days knowledge would abound and we have certainly seen this through the incredible discoveries of science.
When we see how far mankind has come in the past century as compared to how mankind lived since the beginning of recorded time, one has to wonder about this Scripture written a long time ago.....
Daniel 12:4 -But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Perhaps our Science has become a god unto itself for many of this generation? Perhaps our accomplishments through science leave many with the feeling they no longer need a God.
1 Timothy 4:1 – Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.
2 Peter 3:3-4 – Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 – This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
John 3:16 -
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:19 -This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
I can't speak for anyone else, but for me I'd rather live my life believing there is a God and dying to find out there isn't one, then to live my life believing there isn't a God and dying to find out there is One!
