It is cold and raining as I write this. So sick of the cold, but that is not the point. The goal of this posting is believes. Be it my own for the most point. One of my strongest is that people, even those that believe, limit God.
Me? Maybe I give God too much power, but I would rather He have too much then the little some think He has to the point of thinking He does not exist.
The greatest evidence is the big bang. I mean think on that. At a single point at the core of the universe, a massive eruption of matter goes in a nearly unmeasurable distance in all directions. Making billions of galaxies and within each of these is millions of solar systems, and here we are within one of these systems upon a planet.
Here is where many Christians like to limit God, by stating that this planet is the only planet with intelligent life. That in itself diminishes God. If God is truly all-powerful, and all knowing then placing live on other planets is the only logical conclusion one can make. By denying this, Christians give power to those that do not believe God is real. Or should I more accurately say: wish to deny God is real, since they have heard of God. It states clearly in the Bible it is better for those that have not heard of God then for those that have heard of Him.
By denying God, this allows them to deny the teaching given to us by Him and His Son Jesus. This denial allows them to live in sin. If they accept God as real, they must then realize that certain live styles are not acceptable in His eyes and this scares them.
Do not get me wrong. I am Christian, but I DO sin. I go through regret and sorrow. I pray for forgiveness. Then I try not to repeat that sin. Usually it works, but there are some sins I repeat. Some I truly regret, but I believe that I will be forgiven when I regain my strength of will and after prayer.
However, back on topic: The Big Bang.
Science states that all matter has mass and that mass is constant. It can be transformed but it is still constant. You burn wood then there are gases, water that then turns to steam and carbon. All these add back to the wood before it was burnt.
So how can the mass required to form the universe come from nothing? Yet that is exactly what scientist say has taken place. Some theorize that it was as small as an atom, but since none but God was there we truly do not know. Recently I read that science has documented the shock-waves that confirm the Big Bang. Thus, they have confirmed God is real. Since only God can create something from nothing. Or if you wish can open a hole in one reality to transfer mass to another reality.
Now look at the creation has shown in the Bible. You will notice that once the universe exists it is then that God follows the rules of equal mass. He created man from clay as an example. Some may counter with the creation of woman being make from a rib. I will counter with God applied the DNA from the rib and still used clay as well, even though not written that way. Since the best source of DNA comes from the bone marrow, so again proving of the existence of God. The first chapter of Bible is pure science. Science written several thousands of years before the word “science” was coined.
