Created by Chance or Creator?

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth”

Genesis 1:1

There may not be a statement that has been more debated throughout the history of humanity. Did God create the world or did everything just happen? Was this world created according to a plan or has science simply run its course over time, shaping the world that we have today?

This is not meant to be a scientific debate. This blog asks for five minutes from the reader and a discussion like that would take pages and pages of explanation. However, I truly believe that there is a simple way to know for a fact that there is a God. It’s easy. Go to the nearest window and look outside.

Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens are telling the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.”

I have been blessed to live in the beautiful state of Colorado. Every morning that I drive to school, I have an awesome view of the Rocky Mountains. For you, it may be a view of the ocean, a star-filled sky or a beautiful sunrise. Regardless, when I look at the beauty of nature I find myself asking, “How could this have been an accident?” The writer of Psalm 19 reminds us that each and every day we have evidence for the existence of God. The world that God created should be proof enough that there must have been a designer.

Think of the computer you are sitting in front of right now. Imagine taking all the pieces that make up your computer (though I’d have to ask where those pieces came from as well) and putting them into a box. If you closed the lid and shook that box (for as long as you’d like even), would you ever lift the lid to find a completely functional computer? Of course not. It requires a designer, not just chance.

You may not be persuaded as easily that there is a God. If that’s the case, feel free to email me at jbroberts1986@gmail.com. I’d love to look at some of the other evidence that’s out there. However, before you question the existence of God, I challenge you to step outside, look around you, and ask yourself…”Could this have all happened by chance?”

(For a great discussion on the existence of God, I’d encourage you to read “Case for Creator” by Lee Strobel. It is a great read from the view of someone who was out to prove that God does not exist)
