O is for...



The Bible makes it very clear right from the opening verses: the world was created by God. Read Genesis 1 for yourself.

O is for Origins. 

In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him.  (John 1:1-3)
Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

For the record, I am not a scientist, but you can find lists of famous scientists who believed in God here and here. Also a list of former evolutionists who became young earth creation scientists can be found here. Scientist and former atheist, the late Antony Flew wrote a book called There is a God: How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind. If you’re a non-Christian and watched the debate between evolutionist Bill Nye and the folk at Answers in Genesis a couple of years ago, it may not have changed your mind. I personally would have handled the debate differently as I believe more convincing arguments could have been used. I encourage you to do more homework, perhaps beginning with Flew’s book. Here’s a teaser:


To me, it takes much more faith to believe in evolution than to believe in God.

Today’s prayer: Thank You for this beautiful world that You created for us to enjoy and take care of. Help us to treat it better than we have been doing and to treat each other with more kindness and compassion. Thank You for planting it in our hearts to know that there exists Someone more wise and powerful than we. How amazing and wonderful that You want to be in relationship with us!
