“HOW DO WE KNOW FOR CERTAIN…”
0:58
IS A QUESTION THAT MAN HAS ASKED FOR A MYRIAD OF
1:02
THINGS THROUGHOUT TIME.
1:03
“HOW DO I KNOW MY PURPOSE IN LIFE?”
1:06
OR “HOW DO I KNOW WHAT COMES AFTER DEATH?”
1:09
OR MOST IMPORTANTLY “HOW DO I KNOW THERE IS A GOD?”
1:14
A QUESTION LIKE THAT IS SO INTRICATE AND IN-DEPTH,
1:18
HOW DO YOU EVEN BEGIN TO ANSWER IT?
1:20
CS LEWIS COMMENTS ON THIS IMPORTANT QUESTION SAYING,
1:24
“MY ARGUMENT AGAINST GOD WAS THAT THE UNIVERSE
1:28
SEEMED SO CRUEL AND UNJUST.
1:31
BUT HOW HAD I GOT THIS IDEA OF JUST AND UNJUST?
1:35
A MAN DOES NOT CALL A LINE CROOKED UNLESS HE HAS SOME
1:38
IDEA OF A STRAIGHT LINE.”
1:41
SIMPLY PUT, IF THERE WASN’T A GOD, THEN HOW
1:44
WOULD WE KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOOD
1:46
AND EVIL, RIGHT AND WRONG?
1:49
DR. KENNEDY POSES THIS VERY QUESTION AND ANSWERS
1:53
WITH STRONG REASONING IN HIS SERMON, “HOW I KNOW
1:58
THERE IS A GOD.”
2:01
MAY WE HEAR NOW THE WORD OF GOD AS IT’S FOUND IN
2:05
THE 14TH PSALM.
2:08
PSALM 14, VERSE 1.
2:10
MAY WE HEAR THE INSPIRED WORD OF THE LIVING GOD.
3:00
AND MAY GOD SPEAK TO US TODAY THROUGH THIS PORTION
3:03
OF HIS HOLY WORD, AND MAY HIS NAME EVER BE PRAISED.
3:07
AMEN.
3:10
THERE IS NO MORE PROFOUND QUESTION THAT YOU CAN ASK
3:15
THAN THIS: IS THERE A GOD?
3:23
MORTIMER ADLER, THE FAMOUS SCHOLAR AND EDUCATOR,
3:28
EDITOR OF THE GREAT BOOKS OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION,
3:33
SAYS IN HIS GREAT IDEAS SYNTOPICON, WHICH IS THE
3:38
TOPICAL INDEX FOR THE GREAT BOOKS, HE SAYS THAT
3:42
ALMOST EVERY WRITER IN WESTERN CIVILIZATION HAS
3:48
WRITTEN ON THE SUBJECT OF GOD WITH THE EXCEPTION OF
3:52
A FEW PURE MATHEMATICIANS.
3:56
THE CHAPTER ON GOD IS THE LARGEST IN THESE VOLUMES.
4:01
“THE REASON FOR THAT,” HE SAYS, “IS OBVIOUS.”
4:05
THAT IS THAT MORE CONSEQUENCES FOR THOUGHT
4:11
AND ACTION RESULT FROM THE AFFIRMATION OR DENIAL OF
4:16
GOD THAN FROM ANY OTHER BASIC QUESTION.”
4:21
INDEED, THE ENTIRE TENOR OF OUR LIVES WILL BE
4:26
COMPLETELY AFFECTED BY THE ANSWER THAT WE GIVE.
4:31
TODAY, I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO YOU ON WHAT MAY
4:36
SEEM TO SOME TO BE AN AUDACIOUS SUBJECT, AND
4:40
THAT IS, HOW I KNOW THAT THERE IS A GOD.
4:45
NOW, IN AN AGE WHEN MANY PEOPLE FEEL THAT YOU CAN’T
4:49
KNOW ANYTHING, TO SAY THAT I KNOW THAT THERE IS A
4:51
GOD, OF ALL THINGS, WOULD SEEM TO THEM TO BE UTTERLY
4:55
PREPOSTEROUS, BUT I BELIEVE THAT IT IS NOT.
4:58
I THINK THAT THE SCRIPTURE VERY CLEARLY TELLS US THAT
5:02
WE CAN KNOW GOD.
5:03
IN FACT, IT SAYS THIS IS ETERNAL LIFE THAT YOU MAY
5:06
KNOW GOD, THE ONLY TRUE GOD IN JESUS CHRIST WHOM
5:09
HE HATH SENT.
5:10
SO, HOW DO I KNOW THERE IS A GOD?
5:13
LET ME SET FORTH SEVERAL CLASSIC ARGUMENTS FOR THE
5:19
EXISTENCE OF GOD BROUGHT UP TO DATE IN LIGHT OF
5:22
SOME MODERN SCIENTIFIC FINDINGS THAT CERTAINLY
5:26
HAVE AN IMPACT UPON THEM.
5:28
ONE OF THE OLDEST, OF COURSE GOING ALL THE WAY
5:31
BACK TO ARISTOTLE, IS CALLED THE COSMOLOGICAL
5:34
ARGUMENT.
5:35
THE COSMOLOGICAL ARGUMENT IS BASICALLY AN ARGUMENT
5:39
THAT SAYS THAT FOR EVERY EFFECT THERE MUST BE AN
5:43
ADEQUATE CAUSE.
5:45
YOU CAN REMEMBER THE COSMOLOGICAL ARGUMENT IS
5:47
AN ARGUMENT FROM CAUSE.
5:49
IT MIGHT HELP YOU TO REMEMBER THAT THEY BOTH
5:51
BEGIN WITH “C”- CAUSE AND COSMOLOGICAL: COSMOLOGICAL
5:56
SIMPLY MEANS THE STUDY OF THE COSMOS, THE UNIVERSE.
6:02
IF WE ARE LOOKING FOR ARGUMENTS OR PROOFS FOR
6:06
THE EXISTENCE OF GOD, THEN WE DON’T HAVE TO LOOK
6:10
UNDER A TABLE OR IN A CORNER SOMEWHERE.
6:13
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK ABOUT YOU.
6:15
THE UNIVERSE IS THE BIGGEST THING THAT THERE
6:17
IS, PHYSICALLY, AND IN ITSELF IS THE GREATEST
6:22
PROOF FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD.
6:24
THIS HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED FROM THE VERY BEGINNING
6:28
OF THINKING MEN.
6:31
THE UNIVERSE IS THE GREATEST, LARGEST ARGUMENT
6:35
FOR GOD.
6:36
NOTICE, IF THE UNIVERSE EXISTS, AND WE ALL AGREE
6:40
THAT IT DOES, THEN THERE ARE ONLY THREE
6:42
EXPLANATIONS FOR IT.
6:44
ONE, IT IS ETERNAL.
6:47
NOW, THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THERE WERE MEN THAT
6:50
BELIEVED THAT, BUT WITH MODERN SCIENTIFIC
6:54
DISCOVERIES, IT IS NO LONGER POSSIBLE TO BELIEVE
6:58
THAT.
7:00
SCIENTISTS, FOR THE LAST 150 YEARS HAVE BEEN
7:04
SCURRYING AROUND TRYING TO AVOID THE PLAIN
7:09
IMPLICATIONS OF THE MODERN LAWS THAT THEY HAVE
7:11
DISCOVERED THAT CLEARLY INDICATE THE UNIVERSE IS
7:15
NOT ETERNAL.
7:17
THE GREAT LAW, WHICH IS THE MOST THOROUGHLY
7:22
DOCUMENTED OF ALL OF THE LAWS OF SCIENCE,
7:24
THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS, THE LAW OF
7:27
ENTROPY, WHICH SAYS THAT EVERYTHING IS RUNNING
7:30
DOWN.
7:31
EVERYTHING IS LOSING ENERGY.
7:34
EVERYTHING IS WEARING OUT- GROWING OLD.
7:37
SO, IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT IF THE UNIVERSE WERE
7:39
ETERNAL, IT WOULD ALREADY HAVE RUN DOWN.
7:45
THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING HAS A TENDENCY
7:49
TO DISTRIBUTE ITS HEAT EQUALLY INTO ALL PARTS OF
7:52
THE UNIVERSE.
7:53
THE UNIVERSE RIGHT NOW IS TRYING TO MAKE EVERY
7:55
SQUARE FOOT OF THE UNIVERSE THE SAME
7:58
TEMPERATURE, SO THE SUNS ARE GETTING COOLER AND THE
8:01
SPACE IS GRADUALLY RECEIVING MORE AND MORE
8:04
ENERGY.
8:05
AS IF, IF YOU WERE TO SET A GLASS OF HOT WATER AND A
8:09
GLASS OF FREEZING COLD WATER DOWN ON A TABLE AND
8:12
COME BACK IN A DAY, YOU WOULD FIND THAT THEY WOULD
8:14
BOTH BE THE SAME TEMPERATURE.
8:16
AND SO IT WILL BE ULTIMATELY, IF THE
8:18
UNIVERSE CONTINUES LONG ENOUGH.
8:20
THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE WOULD BE THE SAME TEPID
8:23
TEMPERATURE.
8:24
THERE WOULD BE NO FREEZING SPACE, THERE WOULD BE NO
8:27
BLAZING SUN.
8:29
YET, THE UNIVERSE HAS NOT RUN DOWN, THEREFORE, IT IS
8:32
NOT ETERNAL.
8:34
EFFORTS RECENTLY TO HAVE AN OSCILLATING UNIVERSE TO
8:39
AVOID THIS HAVE ALL FALLEN AFOUL OF RECENT SCIENTIFIC
8:43
DISCOVERIES WHICH MAKE IT ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THAT
8:47
THE UNIVERSE CANNOT BE ETERNAL.
8:50
SECOND POSSIBILITY- IF IT’S NOT ETERNAL, MAYBE IT
8:53
IS SELF-CREATED- THAT IT CREATED ITSELF OUT OF
8:58
NOTHING.
8:59
WELL, THERE IS ANOTHER SCIENTIFIC LAW, SOMETIMES
9:02
EXPRESSED IN THIS WAY, “EX NIHILO, NIHIL FIT,” WHICH
9:09
MEANS, “OUT OF NOTHING, NOTHING COMES.”
9:13
NOTHING PRODUCES NOTHING, AND THE UNIVERSE CANNOT
9:18
HAVE PRODUCED ITSELF OUT OF NOTHING.
9:21
IN FACT, THAT FLIES INTO THE FACE OF THE FIRST LAW
9:25
OF THERMODYNAMICS WHICH SAYS PRECISELY THAT-
9:28
THAT NOTHING PRODUCES NOTHING.
9:31
A THIRD POSSIBILITY IS THAT IT WAS CREATED BY
9:35
SOMEONE WHO IS HIMSELF ETERNAL, AND THAT IS THE
9:41
FIRST STATEMENT OF THE BIBLE THAT “IN THE
9:44
BEGINNING, GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.”
9:47
THAT IS THE MOST SCIENTIFIC STATEMENT THAT
9:52
HAS EVER BEEN MADE ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF THE
9:54
UNIVERSE.
9:55
SO IN LIGHT OF ALL OF THE MODERN DISCOVERIES ABOUT
9:58
THE UNIVERSE, IT IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY
10:01
CLEAR THAT THE UNIVERSE ITSELF IS A GREAT ARGUMENT
10:08
FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD.
10:09
EVEN DR. ROBERT JASTROW, ONE OF THE LEADING SPACE
10:14
SCIENTISTS IN THE WORLD, THE HEAD OF THE US
10:16
INSTITUTE FOR SPACE STUDIES, THE FOUNDER AND
10:20
HEAD OF THE GODDARD SPACE INSTITUTE FOR NASA, I HAVE
10:24
HAD DINNER WITH DR. JASTROW AND WE HAVE
10:27
DISCUSSED THESE THINGS, AND HE HAS SAID IN HIS
10:29
WRITINGS, THAT MODERN SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERIES
10:33
MAKE IT EASIER AND EASIER FOR THE SCIENTIST TO
10:35
BELIEVE THAT HERE IS A GOD- IN FACT, MAKE IT
10:40
HARDER AND HARDER FOR ANYONE TO BELIEVE THAT
10:42
THERE IS NOT.
10:43
SECONDLY, AND BEYOND THE UNIVERSE, THERE IS THE
10:46
PRESENCE OF LIFE ITSELF.
10:49
STILL, FROM A COSMOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE, AS THE CAUSE
10:52
OF LIFE, WHERE DID THIS LIFE COME FROM?
10:55
THE WORLD TEEMS WITH LIFE.
10:57
THIS SANCTUARY IS PACKED WITH LIVING CREATURES.
11:01
WHERE DID THEY COME FROM?
11:03
WELL, IT USED TO BE HELD THAT LIFE AROSE BY
11:06
SPONTANEOUS GENERATION- FLIES, MAGGOTS COMING INTO
11:12
EXISTENCE ON PUTRID MEAT, AND FROGS COMING OUT OF
11:17
THE SLIME OF BOGS.
11:20
WELL, THAT WAS PROVED TO BE FALSE BY PASTEUR AND
11:24
REDDI.
11:25
AND SO THAT WAS ABANDONED- THAT LIFE WAS NOT COMING
11:29
INTO EXISTENCE FROM NON-LIFE TODAY AND SO THEY
11:32
RETREATED TO THE DIM PAST.
11:34
AND THEY SAID THAT THOUGH LIFE IS NOT SPONTANEOUSLY
11:37
COMING INTO EXISTENCE TODAY, IT DID DO SO
11:41
MILLIONS OF YEARS AGO- IN FACT, 2 BILLION YEARS AGO,
11:45
THEY LIKE TO SAY.
11:47
VERY INTERESTINGLY, THE DISCOVERIES THAT HAVE
11:52
TAKEN PLACE IN THE LAST DECADE OR SO HAVE SHOWN
11:55
THE IMPOSSIBILITY OF THAT HAPPENING.
11:59
FOR EXAMPLE, PROTEIN WHICH NOT TOO MANY YEARS AGO WAS
12:05
THE MOST COMPLEX SUBSTANCE KNOWN TO MAN, PROTEIN
12:10
MOLECULES BY THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS GO TO MAKE UP
12:14
A CELL.
12:15
AND THEY THEMSELVES ARE SO COMPLEX- SO DIFFERENT FROM
12:19
THE WORLD OF CHARLES DARWIN, 150 YEARS 25 OR 30
12:23
YEARS AGO, WHO FREQUENTLY TALKED ABOUT A SIMPLE
12:26
SINGLE CELL.
12:28
WE KNOW NOW THAT THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROTEIN
12:33
MOLECULE ITSELF IS SUCH THAT LECOMPTE DUNOUY, A
12:38
FRENCH NOBEL PRIZE WINNING MATHEMATICIAN AND ONE OF
12:42
THE WORLD’S GREAT EXPERTS IN PROBABILITY STUDIES,
12:45
SAID THAT THE PROBABILITIES OF EVEN ONE
12:49
PROTEIN MOLECULE, ONE OF THE THOUSANDS OF BUILDING
12:54
BLOCKS OF THE CELL COMING INTO EXISTENCE, IT WOULD
12:58
TAKE 10 TO THE 234 BILLION YEARS TO PRODUCE ONE
13:07
PROTEIN MOLECULE.
13:09
SOME OF YOU, I AM SURE, DON’T APPRECIATE WHAT THAT
13:12
MEANS.
13:13
PROBABILITY EXPERTS HAVE SAID THAT IF THE
13:18
PROBABILITIES OF ANYTHING COMING INTO EXISTENCE ARE
13:21
GREATER THAN 10 TO THE 50TH POWER, IT WILL NEVER
13:26
HAPPEN ANYWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE, REGARDLESS OF
13:30
HOW MUCH TIME IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE
13:32
UNIVERSE, 10 TO THE 50TH.
13:35
TO SIMPLY GET ONE PROTEIN MOLECULE, 10 TO THE 234TH
13:41
POWER- NOT 234 BILLION, BUT 234 ZEROS BILLIONS
13:49
OF YEARS.
13:53
WELL, THEN THEY DISCOVERED SOMETHING EVEN MORE
13:56
COMPLEX- DNA.
13:59
DRS. WATSON AND CRICK DISCOVERED THE KEY, THE
14:03
CENTRAL BRAIN OF LIFE IN THE NUCLEUS OF A CELL, THE
14:06
DNA MOLECULE.
14:08
EVERY NUCLEUS OF EVERY CELL HAS THIS COMPLEX
14:12
DOUBLE HELIX, DOUBLE CIRCULAR STAIR TYPE OF
14:16
MOLECULE WHICH IS FILLED WITH THE MOST COMPLEX
14:19
THINGS.
14:20
IT IS SO COMPLEX THAT IF YOU TOOK EACH ONE OF
14:23
THOSE DNA MOLECULES OUT OF YOUR CELL AND STRETCHED
14:27
THEM OUT AND LINKED THEM TOGETHER, YOUR BODY HAS
14:30
ENOUGH DNA TO REACH FROM HERE TO THE SUN AND BACK
14:34
400 TIMES.
14:39
THAT IS SO COMPLEX THAT FRANCIS CRICK, WHO
14:43
DISCOVERED IT AND WHO IS AN ATHEIST, SAID THERE IS
14:47
NO POSSIBLE WAY THAT EVEN THE DNA MOLECULE COULD
14:50
EVER HAVE ARISEN IN THIS WORLD BY CHANCE IN EVEN
14:53
5 BILLION YEARS.
14:55
SO, HE SAID, IT MUST HAVE COME FROM SOME ADVANCED
14:57
BEINGS LIVING IN SOME OTHER PART OF THE GALAXY.
15:01
WHERE THOSE BEINGS CAME FROM, HE DIDN’T SAY.
15:05
THAT’S SIMPLY EXTENDING THE SHADOW, AN INFINITE
15:11
REGRESS IN LOGIC WHICH WILL NOT WORK.
15:15
MEANWHILE, SIR FRED HOYLE, ONE OF THE WORLD’S TWO
15:19
GREATEST MATHEMATICIANS AND ASTRONOMERS FROM
15:22
CAMBRIDGE, MADE A STUDY OF THE POSSIBILITY OF A CELL
15:26
COMING INTO EXISTENCE ANYWHERE IN THE ENTIRE
15:28
UNIVERSE IN THE WHOLE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE,
15:30
AND HE DISCOVERED THAT THE CHANCES WERE ZILCH.
15:33
10 TO THE 40,000TH POWER YEARS TO PRODUCE A CELL.
15:43
TEN WITH 40,000 ZEROES AFTER IT- IT WOULD TAKE
15:48
THAT MANY YEARS TO PRODUCE ONE CELL.
15:52
CONCLUSION: SAID ATHEIST SIR FRED HOYLE, “THE ONLY
15:57
WAY THAT LIFE CAN POSSIBLY EXIST IS THAT IT WAS
16:00
CREATED BY AN INFINITE INTELLIGENCE WHOM YOU MAY
16:04
WISH TO CALL GOD.”
16:05
SO ATHEIST FRED HOYLE WAS FORCED TO BECOME A
16:10
BELIEVER IN GOD BY THE CONTINUING ADVANCE OF
16:15
MODERN SCIENCE.
16:16
THIRDLY, LET ME MENTION WHAT IS CALLED
16:19
TELEOLOGICAL ARGUMENT.
16:21
TELOS IN GREEK MEANS “THE END.”
16:23
THIS IS THE ARGUMENT FROM ENDS OR PURPOSES OR
16:26
DESIGN- THE ARGUMENT FROM DESIGN, WHICH SAYS THAT
16:32
ALL THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE WE SEE EVIDENCE
16:35
OF DESIGN.
16:37
YOU LOOK AT A COMPLEX MACHINE AND YOU CONCLUDE
16:42
THAT IT HAS A DESIGNER.
16:44
THAT IS THE OLD WATCHMAKER ARGUMENT BROUGHT UP TO DATE.
16:49
EVEN IN THE DAYS OF THE GREAT ASTRONOMER KEPLER,
16:52
WHO HAD AN ACQUAINTANCE WHO WAS AN ATHEIST WITH
16:55
WHOM HE HAD ARGUED MANY A TIME, AND KEPLER DECIDED
16:59
TO HAVE BUILT FOR HIMSELF A COMPLEX WORKING MODEL OF
17:03
THE SOLAR SYSTEM.
17:04
WHICH HAD THE SUN, ALL OF THE PLANETS ROTATING ABOUT
17:08
IT, WITH THE MOONS OR SATELLITES GOING AROUND
17:11
THE DIFFERENT PLANETS.
17:12
IT WAS A WONDER TO BEHOLD.
17:14
ONE DAY HIS ATHEIST FRIEND CAME INTO HIS STUDY, HE
17:17
SAID, “IT’S BEAUTIFUL! WHO MADE THIS?”
17:22
KEPLER SAID, “NO ONE.
17:27
IT JUST MADE ITSELF.
17:30
GATHER TOGETHER THE DUST AND THINGS FROM THIS END
17:33
OF THE STUDY- THERE MUST HAVE BEEN A DRAFT COMING
17:36
IN THE DOOR.
17:39
I JUST CAME IN ONE MORNING AND THERE IT WAS.”
17:46
HIS FRIEND SAID “YOU DON’T EXPECT ME TO BELIEVE THAT?”
17:51
HE SAID “NO, I DON’T, BUT YOU BELIEVE THAT THE REAL
17:54
SOLAR SYSTEM WHICH IS VASTLY MORE COMPLEX THAN
17:56
THIS SIMPLE MODEL JUST MADE ITSELF.
18:00
THAT IS EVEN MORE PALPABLY ABSURD.”
18:07
WE SEE ALSO, IN THE SAME MANNER OF DESIGN IN
18:12
SOMETHING LIKE THE CELL, THAT THERE IS NO
18:15
POSSIBILITY THAT THIS JUST HAPPENED.
18:18
WHEN YOU STOP TO THINK THAT NOT ONLY IS A CELL
18:21
INCREDIBLY COMPLEX, BUT IT IS MORE COMPLEX THAN ANY
18:26
MACHINE THAT MAN HAS EVER MADE.
18:28
YOU TAKE THE LARGEST SUPER COMPUTER THAT EXISTS ON
18:31
THIS PLANET TODAY.
18:32
IT IS A VERITABLE TOY COMPARED TO THE ENORMOUS
18:37
COMPLEXITY OF EVERY ONE OF THE HUNDRED TRILLION CELLS
18:41
IN YOUR BODY, AND YET WOULD ANYONE BELIEVE THAT
18:45
THE LARGEST COMPUTER IN THE WORLD JUST HAPPENED
18:50
TO MAKE ITSELF BY CHANCE?
18:53
IN FACT, ONE SCIENTIST SAID THAT THE CELL IS MORE
18:56
COMPLEX THAN THE MOST COMPLEX COMPUTER EVER MADE
18:58
BY MAN, OR THE MOST COMPLEX MACHINE THAT HAS
19:03
EVER EVEN BEEN DREAMT OF BY MAN.
19:06
THE INCREDIBLE COMPLEXITY OF THE EYE GAVE DARWIN,
19:12
HE SAID, A HEADACHE.
19:14
AND WELL IT SHOULD HAVE WITH ITS 7 MILLION CONES
19:17
THAT SEE THE VARIOUS COLORS AND ITS 100 MILLION
19:20
RODS AND ALL OF THE INCREDIBLE COMPLEXITIES OF
19:22
THIS WONDERFUL CAMERA, AND YET DARWIN HIMSELF SAID
19:27
THAT TO BELIEVE THAT THIS HAPPENED MERELY BY NATURAL
19:30
SELECTION IS ABSURD IN THE HIGHEST DEGREE.
19:34
WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE FACT THAT THE CARE THAT HAS
19:36
BEEN SHOWN IN THE CREATION OF OUR HABITAT.
19:39
IF THE EARTH WERE 10% CLOSER TO THE SUN,
19:42
WE WOULD BURN UP.
19:43
10% FURTHER, ALL LIFE WOULD FREEZE AND DIE.
19:47
AND THEN THERE IS THE EVIDENCE OF CONVERSION-
19:50
THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE HUMAN SOUL WHICH IS SO
19:55
MONUMENTAL AS TO DEFY EXPLANATION.
19:59
THOUSANDS OF PAGES HAVE BEEN WRITTEN TRYING TO
20:01
EXPLAIN AWAY THE CONVERSION OF THE APOSTLE
20:04
PAUL ALONE.
20:05
WHAT TRANSFORMED THIS MAN FROM THE BITTER AND
20:09
HOSTILE CRITIC AND ADVERSARY OF CHRIST INTO
20:12
HIS MOST LOYAL DEVOTEE?
20:15
WHAT CHANGED THAT VOLATILE AND VACILLATING FISHERMAN
20:19
PETER INTO THE ROCK THAT GAVE GREAT STRENGTH TO THE
20:23
EARLY CHURCH?
20:24
WHAT CHANGED AUGUSTINE, THE GREATEST INTELLECT OF
20:27
THE FIRST 1,000 YEARS OF THIS AGE, FROM A
20:30
PROFLIGATE AND DISSOLUTE PHILOSOPHER INTO THE GREAT
20:34
INTELLECTUAL CHAMPION OF CHRISTIANITY?
20:37
JOHN CALVIN, PERHAPS THE GREATEST MIND OF THE LAST
20:40
THOUSAND YEARS, SAID, “I WAS SUDDENLY CONVERTED
20:43
UNTO GOD.”
20:44
MARTIN LUTHER, WHO CHANGED THE FACE OF EUROPE, CAME
20:47
FACE TO FACE WITH THE GOD WHO CHANGED HIS LIFE.
20:50
JOHN BUNYAN, THAT SINFUL TINKER OF BEDFORD, WHO MET
20:54
THE LIVING GOD AND WAS CHANGED INTO A GREAT
20:57
PASTOR AND AUTHOR OF PILGRIM’S PROGRESS.
20:59
JOHN WESLEY, JOHN KNOX, OR MORE RECENTLY, CS LEWIS,
21:04
THE ATHEIST OF OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE, WHO WROTE HIS
21:07
TESTIMONY IN HIS BOOK SURPRISED BY JOY AS HE
21:11
CAME FACE TO FACE IN THE PRESENCE OF THAT ONE WHOSE
21:14
EXISTENCE HE HAD ALWAYS DENIED.
21:17
OR PERHAPS THE GREATEST LITERARY MAN OF THE 20TH
21:19
CENTURY, THE DOSTOYEVSKY OF OUR CENTURY IS NO DOUBT
21:23
THE GREAT ALEXANDER SOLZHENITSYN, WHO CAME TO
21:25
MEET GOD WHILE HE WAS IN THE RED BELLY OF THE
21:28
DRAGON IN THE GULAG ARCHIPELAGO.
21:32
A BILLY GRAHAM, WHO AS A YOUNG FRIVOLOUS TEENAGER,
21:35
MET THE LIVING GOD IN JESUS CHRIST.
21:38
HIS LIFE WAS TRANSFORMED AND TENS OF MILLIONS HAVE
21:41
BEEN CHANGED AS WELL.
21:43
WHO IS GOING TO EXPLAIN THESE AND HUNDREDS AND
21:46
HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF CONVERSIONS OF OTHERS WHO
21:50
HAVE LED THEM ACROSS THE WIDEST OCEANS, UP THE
21:53
HIGHEST MOUNTAINS, THROUGH THE DENSEST JUNGLES TO
21:56
PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST TO CANNIBALS,
22:00
AND HEADHUNTERS, AND TRIBESMEN OF EVERY SORT.
22:03
GOD HAS USED THEM AND THEIR SACRIFICES TO ATTEST
22:06
TO THE FACT THAT THERE IS A LIVING GOD WHO CHANGES
22:10
HUMAN SOULS AND MAKES THEM NEW CREATURES IN CHRIST.
22:14
BUT ALL OF THIS WILL STILL BE BUT THEORY UNTIL YOU
22:21
COME AT LAST TO THAT GREAT EXPERIMENT, WHERE IN THE
22:26
LABORATORY OF YOUR OWN SOUL, YOU MEET WITH THE
22:29
ULTIMATE PROOF.
22:31
HOW DO I ULTIMATELY KNOW THAT THERE IS A GOD?
22:33
BECAUSE, MY FRIENDS, ONE DAY 35 YEARS AGO I MET HIM
22:40
FACE TO FACE, PERSON TO PERSON, IN MY OWN
22:45
APARTMENT, WHEN HE CAME TO A YOUNG MAN WHO SOUGHT HIM
22:48
NOT AND LAID HIS HAND UPON MY SHOULDER AND TURNED ME
22:52
AROUND.
22:53
HE TRANSFORMED MY HEART, GAVE ME TOTALLY DIFFERENT
22:59
REASONS FOR LIVING AND FOR 35 YEARS HE HAS KEPT ME
23:04
GOING IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WAY.
23:06
I KNOW THERE IS A GOD, BECAUSE EVERY DAY I MEET
23:10
HIM AND TALK WITH HIM.
23:12
I KNOW THERE IS A GOD BECAUSE HE HAS CHANGED
23:15
MY LIFE.
23:17
AND HE CAN CHANGE YOURS, TOO.
23:20
WHEN YOU COME TO SEE HIM IN ALL OF HIS GRACE, WHEN
23:23
YOU COME TO SEE HIM IN THE FACE OF JESUS CHRIST
23:27
HANGING UPON A CROSS, WHEN YOU SEE HIS WONDROUS LOVE
23:31
AS HE GAVE HIMSELF FOR US IN CHRIST, WHEN YOU SEE
23:36
HIS MATCHLESS GRACE, WHEN HE IS WILLING TO FORGIVE
23:38
YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR SINS AND TO ACCEPT YOU JUST AS
23:41
YOU ARE AND FREELY FORGIVE YOU, AND GRATUITOUSLY
23:44
GRANT UNTO YOU THE GIFT OF EVERLASTING LIFE, WHEN
23:47
HE’S WILLING TO GIVE YOU THE GIFT OF HEAVEN, PAID
23:50
FOR BY HIM AT INFINITE COST, AT THE SWEAT AND
23:55
BLOOD AND AGONY OF THE CROSS, THE WRATH OF HIS
23:57
FATHER, THE PAYMENT OF HELL.
23:59
WHEN YOU COME TO SEE A LOVE LIKE THAT, THEN MY

The Bottomline Question

 

Image Credit

The bottomline question behind every issue that a man or nation deals with is this:

Did God create man or did man evolve?

That answer to that directs all subsequent actions.

Those who control the social narrative say that man evolved.

Because much of the media is controlled, various forms of media have become voice of evolution, the voice of both the root and the fruit.

Every problem, personal and national, flows from a belief in evolution.

The Tree of Evolution

All evils come from the evil seed and tree of evolution.

Tree of life by Haeckel

If you believe in evolution, then every new thing that comes along is just another attempt for man to evolve.

And if billions die in the attempt to evolve, then that is considered part of the collateral damage.

 

The Garden of Eden Was Perfect

Cole Thomas The Garden of Eden 1828

The Lord God created everything perfect. Sin, sickness and death were not a part of God’s original creation. Sin, sickness and death entered the world at the Fall of Adam.

The Suffering of Evolution

Mankind has forgotten that he was created by God.  There has been a rewriting of mankind’s history.

It is not God’s will for mankind to go bumbling into oblivion, killing off billions of humans as mankind flounders trying to figure out and remember who he is and where he came from.

For if man came from the slime and evolved, then all he is is one gigantic experiment. If he blows it, then he is doomed to death. If mankind collectively blows it, then the everything ends.

Because if mankind is fluid and there is no truth, just “fluidity”, if everything is a forever experiment or dream, then those who create the social narrative can defy all historic norms as they seek to recreate society in their image where they become gods with a little “g”and then seek to rule in their own image for their own power and profit.

Under the narrative of evolution, someone will be “god” behind the scenes, but evolutionists don’t want it to be the Lord God.

Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

 

We know who is currently ruling because there is so much suffering and sorrow.

The Alternative Option

The alternative option to evolution, as given in the Bible, is Creationism.

If mankind came from God (and mankind was created by God), then there is a Creator waiting for humanity overall to turn to Him in humility and repentance, seeking direction and redemption from Him.

The voices of evolution have been permitted to speak for far too long.

Why are these voices permitted to speak at all?

Proverbs 14:5 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.

6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.

7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.

8 The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way: but the folly of fools is deceit.

9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.

 

Definites

In many areas of life, we recognize definites.

Image credit

For example, if you have a vehicle, there is only one kind of fuel you put into the vehicle.  If you use the wrong fuel, the vehicle is ruined.

You are determined to use the correct fuel as you don’t want to destroy your vehicle. This is common sense.

You don’t say, my car is fluid, anything will work. You know that is not true.

 

Creation, The Fall, and Its Consequences

Creation-Luther-Bible-1534

There was a time when God was not far off from mankind. God walked and talked with Adam in the Garden of Eden.

After the Fall, Adam and Ever were cut off from God.

St Michael and All Angels, Lansdowne Drive, London Fields, London E8 - Mural - geograph.org.uk - 1133942

The Knowledge of God Was Forgotten by Many

As time when on, the knowledge of God became dim.

There was no way to know about God except through the revelations sent from the Lord.

II Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

 

The Old Testament is full of these voices.

Take thee a great roll, and write on it with a man’s pen

Then Jesus came with even more revelation from God.  This is recorded in the New Testament of the Holy Bible.

Bloch-SermonOnTheMountcropped2

 

When Adam had fellowship with God, he had a living, tangible relationship with God. When Adam, and his descendants, were cut off from that relationship because of sin, they then needed revelation and help from God to return to fellowship with God.

Mankind needs revelation knowledge because he fell from the realm of living reality. The only way back was through God saying…since you are now broken and apart from me, this is the way back. This is called revelation knowledge. It comes from the realm in which God dwells. It is not knowledge that comes from the five senses.

And that revelation knowledge leads to the knowledge of Jesus Christ.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

 

It pleased God to give mankind revelation knowledge after the Fall of mankind.  That knowledge is recorded in the Bible. Jesus said that you can know the truth of this knowledge by obedient to it.

John 7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

 

The refusal to walk in the  reality of the fact that God is the Creator and mankind is the Created, the refusal to walk in the Word of God, the refusal to deal with sin and inquity through the finished work of Jesus Christ, the refusal to pattern the government of the nations according to the principles of the Bible, have led the world to the place where a small oligarch that believes in evolution, pushes their beliefs and agendas onto the rest of the world for the oligarchs’ own power and profit.

Paradise Lost 1

003Rebelión parauna esper

There are only two options. If the nations reject Creationism and the Lord Jesus Christ, they are stuck with those who rule through evolutionary lies.

It’s a decision between evolution and Creationism.

It’s that simple.

Evolution is not some enlightened theory.

It is a lie employed to take power and wealth from many and concentrate it in the hands of a few.

They lie to you and tell you that there is no Creator (a lie), they lie and say that there is not revealed truth on how to live ( the Bible that will give direction and principles to men and nations), so they say by their words and actions…we really don’t know the right way to live, so we have to experiment with all sorts of things…defund the police, gender fluidity, men having babies, castrating children and giving them drugs to try to change their identity, experimenting with a toxic jab, giving rights to criminals, catch and release, open borders, the printing of money causing inflation…there are all sorts of things that are being experimented with that are already covered in the Word of God or the principles of the Word as being destructive.

And we can see before our eyes that these lies, these evolutionary lies, are destructive.  All those evolutionary “experiments” create chaos in society and in the midst of that chaos, like magicians directing your attention one way while they do something else as your attention is distracted, power and wealth becomes centralized in the hands of a few.

We are told by the oligarchs are no answers (a lie, there are answers through obedience to the Word of God and the Spirit of the Living God) and that there are problems that they, the oligarchs, must solve and that we need to give them more and more money  and power and fluidity to solve problems.

And while they tell you you need to tighten the belt as they experiment, they fly around in jets and pick up the pieces of the economies that they destroy.

For generations, because the lie of evolution has not been sufficiently challenged in the public discourse, they have felt empowered to remove God from the laws, schools, and society.

 

Why is that?

It is because what they do is contrary to the Word of God.  But a society that knows the Word of God and a society with laws based on the Word of God, would hold them in check and ultimately forbid them to control nations and economies.

 

If we permit them to do what they do, without calling for a Nuremberg II trial, as well as calling for an end to the bizarre, dangerous, and destructive actions that can only occur in a society based on evolutionary theory, then we have no one to blame but ourselves.

James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

 

Ultimately, we know that Jesus Christ will rule and reign on the earth.

But how much collateral damage there is among the masses and nations will in large part depend on whether enough people, who know better, shake off the fetters that bind them and insist on a final decision against evolutionary fables.

Mankind was created and owes its allegiance to the Creator to walk in His ways, personally and nationally.

If evolutionary fables continue, then basically, the default continues.

Evolutionists  will send out the next “fluid” idea until they get what they want… complete power and control.

If society does not have the courage or willingness to address this issue, then things will degenerate until some point in prophetic time, when God will deal with that which belongs to Him.

Many are aware that time is coming, but as the Bible says, no man knows the day or hour.

We do know this from the Word of God.  This will not go on forever.

Luke 19:11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.

12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.

15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.

16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.

17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.

19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:

21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.

22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?

24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

28 And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.

Creation or Evolution?

The question of creation versus evolution is at the foundation of all other problems in the world.

If man evolved, then he is nothing more than another animal.  In that case, the law of the jungle applies.  The survival of the fittest applies.  If he wants to go out and take something from someone else, whether that’s his lunch or his car or his home or his wife, then the law of the jungle, “survival of the fittest” applies.  If he wants to kill someone, then the law of the jungle applies, and life becomes cheap.

Under the philosophy of evolution, life doesn’t matter.  Private property doesn’t matter.  Law and order doesn’t matter.  This is the fruit of the philosphy of evolution.

It is an argument that leads to no morals and no standards.  An individual or oligarchy can take over the world, destroy the world, enslave the world, do whatever it wants, and that’s okay in the eyes of progressive atheists, because in the eyes of atheistic evolutionists, man is considered nothing more than a beast, a “useless eater”.

The belief in creation and the God of creation, states that man was created by God, in the image of God, and called to be a Son of God.

This means that the Lord God is the King of His Kingdom and the laws of God prevail.

God made man and has the divine right, as Creator, to be the final Word as to how man should live.

How do we find out the mind of God?  The thoughts of God are written in the Word of God, the Bible, the Old and New Testament.

Political philosophies are based on one of these two ideas:  creation or evolution.

Those who believe in the Lord God of creation value life, liberty, religious freedom, the rule of law, and the family as ordained by the Lord God in Genesis.

To the atheist, life is cheap.  Atheistic governments have gulags, abortions, corruption, theft, loss of property rights, starvation of the masses.  Life is cheap.

There is currently a worldwide movement to shift the world from values based on the Bible,  to a dictatorship run by the New World Order.  It is called the Great Reset.

Christians must resist this.  It is ungodly.

Catholic leaders, historically, have tackled these historical and political topics more openly than other denominations. They speak with a clarity that is lacking in other denominations. You see a bit of “fudging” and “blurring the lines” in an apostate America. The true Catholic leaders draw clear lines of demarcation.

Creation versus Evolution

In the beginning, creation

There has been an ongoing secular debate as to whether mankind evolved from an ape or was created by God.

There is a Christian scientific ministry that focuses on  various scientific topics with expert scientists in various fields. Recently, the topic of evolution versus creation  was covered on one of their weekly broadcasts.

Basically, it comes down to this. If there was no Adam who sinned, then there was no need for the Saviour, Jesus.

The Catholic Church understands this very well. They discuss the first Adam who fell, and the Second Adam, who is Jesus, the Redeemer, the Saviour of the world.

Not every denomination explains this as well.  Some have not thought this through as well.  Some denominations seem to feel that evolution and creation can co-exist.  But they cannot.

Athiests have thought this through.  They recognize that if there is an evolutionary model then there is no need of a Saviour.

The bottom line is this.  You have to have a Second Adam if you have a first Adam.  If there is no first Adam, but only an ape, then you don’t need a Second Adam.

The Lord God immediately prophesied a Second Adam after the Fall.

Genesis 3:15   will put hostility between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and her offspring.
He will bruise your head,
and you will bruise his heel.”

 

If you try to bring in an evolutionary model, that model has no indication of temptation of the serpent to Eve and Adam, the fall of mankind, and the necessity for Jesus to redeem mankind from the Fall.

Here is a short video on creation vs evolution.  

Here is another link.

If you are interested in learning more about science in relation to the Bible, consider watching Creation in the 21st Century on TBN every Saturday.  It is a 1/2 hour show.  You can find the current schedule by going to https://tbn.org and looking up their schedule.  It currently is on at 12:30 pm Central time.
