What You Won't Find In A Christian Bookstore

With this post I wanted to share some inspirational videos related to the subject of Intelligent Design/Creation Science, that I have discovered over the past few years while browsing the Internet. These links are posted below the following comments…

When I first authored this post (just a few days before this update), I turned it into a bit of rant against those who believe in Evolution; whether professing to be Christians, Atheists or Agnostics. I allowed my personal convictions about the subject to be phrased in such a way that it didn’t allow for anyone else to have a different perspective without it sounding like I was labeling everyone as stupid who didn’t agree with me. For this I sincerely apologize.

What I originally intended to convey, before my zeal and emotion got the better of me, was simply how awe-inspiring I find God’s amazing creation! To me, the evidence supporting Creation is truly overwhelming. I personally find it difficult to understand how anyone could look at a sunset, or the beauty of a mountain range, an ocean, or even a fluttering butterfly in all of its colorful splendor and not realize that the very fingerprint of God is so obvious before the eyes. When I hear people complain, “Where is God? If He really exists then why doesn’t He reveal Himself to us?” it makes me want to say, “Are you not able to see? Are you aware at all of nature’s beauty, complexity and order?” As I said before, it is as though God’s very fingerprint is evident everywhere before our eyes. Some people say, “But why doesn’t He reveal Himself in a form we can comprehend or communicate with?” To which I must respond, “He has… Ever heard of Jesus? God clothed Himself in human flesh and demonstrated His love for us…” Guess what? Many people refused to believe Him then as well… In fact, the humans He came to reveal Himself to then, killed Him. Some say, “Yes but that was 2,000 years ago… What about today? What about now? Why can’t we have a real relationship with God now? I mean a REAL one?” Sigh… Jesus answered this question when He told His disciples that after He physically departed from this Earth, He would send “another Comforter” and this is the One known as “The Holy Spirit”. Through His Spirit, Jesus promised that He would NEVER leave us or forsake us. So we have all these evidences; Creation, Christ, and the Spirit of God that comes to every person who believes the Gospel. Still today, many people refuse to believe in God. I confess that I’m not sure how else to convince them, since the most obvious examples they do not appear to be interested in. God knows.

 



 
 

I genuinely believe common sense even dictates that we are CREATED and marvelously so! Watch some or all of the videos I have posted below and see if you cannot agree. The incredible precision with which nature functions, even how it shows that there is a program written in our very makeup (DNA), indicates the obvious truth that someONE designed us! Doesn’t the evidence of design logically demand that there must be a designer? I believe so! What’s especially fascinating to me is that, just as scientists continue to discover more amazing things the further out into space they peer, so they are finding the same as they use their microscopes to look inward. The complexity, design and wonder of the human cell is truly beyond words. There are entire “factories” and complicated bio-machines and processes that completely boggle the mind in their detail and function (and their obvious elements of design). And for all that scientists currently know about the human cell, they admit that they have only scratched the surface. The information present within is staggering to even attempt comprehending. It is more complex than any computer. The human body has over 100 trillion cells and yet there is more information in just one single cell than in a space shuttle! Think about that for a moment!

Mankind’s greatest technological accomplishment cannot even come close to the marvel of the detail found in nature! It seems incredible to me that anyone could actually honestly believe that there is no God.

I love science! I love to explore and observe how things work, especially the natural processes of life in God’s magnificent creation – because they all testify so grandly that He is real! My own wife came to believe through her investigation of the evidence supporting Creation. It is absolutely true that God is made known to people through His creation. How awesome!

Romans 1:19-22 They know the truth about God because He has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship Him as God or even give Him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools.


 

The following video is called The Programming of Life and it is an exciting journey into the wonder of human DNA. I love this presentation.

This next video was put together by a YouTube user and reflects on the six days of Creation with some fantastic imagery.

  • Don’t think the comment I sent got through since I forgot to complete the math equation at the bottom . . .
    I simply wish to reiterate one thing—remove me from your email list TO-DAY!!!
    Thank you.

  • I was just thinking about this topic last night. Thankyou so much for the article. We try and attempt to bring people in by compromise, but Jesus said in John chapter 13 that it is by our love one for another that the world will know that we are His disciples. That’s powerful! That means that all the believers that are compromising don’t need to because that is not at all what attracts people to the Father anyhow. It is by His Spirit, by the word of our testimony and by our love one for another that the world will know that God truly is here and that He is real. That should be a burden off some of us so that we can quit trying to convince others to follow us, and just uncomprimisingly continue to follow God without the weight on our shoulders. Also the world is not only 6000 years old. It is 6000 years old. That is a long time for the world. I don’t think people realize how much can happen in that length of time. I don’t know what scientists say about the flood, but every culture since the beginning of time have known these three things: The world was created (many people’s believe it was spoken or sang into exsistence) two, that there was a flood (they believe in and talk about it as though it were common knowledge, hmmm) and three that we need sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins. The question is is whom will we serve? Just liek Joshua said: “For me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

  • Right on Tiffany! 🙂 You’re right, we don’t need to “convince” people to follow us, we simply need to speak the truth in love. It is God’s Spirit that draws people to the Father. Though I completely believe that, sometimes even I get ahead of myself and try convince people and then wonder why they are so stubborn and blind and can’t see reason. hehehe… It’s just another reminder that my job isn’t to get anxious over those details (sometimes easier said than done). I am to be whom God designed me to be and to love other people and at the same time not apologize for the truth I believe, but God is able to do the convincing.

    When I first posted this article, I allowed myself to get a little “zealous” in my presentation… where I basically called anyone who didn’t agree with me stupid. I meant well. 😉 But I think there is a better way for me to present the truth in this case. Thanks for your comments though. They totally encouraged me and it’s nice to know I didn’t offend everybody. haha… God knows I want to convey the truth and I never want to be an obstacle that gets in the way of people opening up their hearts to the truth. I know we all have convictions about things that sometimes aren’t as black and white to everyone else because of each of our various levels of maturity in Christ or where we’re at in our relationship with Jesus. I know there has to be grace for each one to seek and find and grow spiritually according to the Lord’s “time-table” for each one of us. Thank God He has been patient with me along this road. As I look back, I have realized a number of times where – as it turns out – I wasn’t always as smart as I thought I was at the time. hehehe… God is sure good with us! 🙂

    Back to the subject of Creation though, I agree with you totally about how people don’t really think about how long 6,000 years is. This, in my opinion, is part of the “brain-washing” going on with Evolution’s billions of years theories… It marginalizes the Scriptures to a point where people don’t really regard how massive even a thousand years is and they start to think of it as being too short an amount of time. But look at the world today, just in terms of population. As of 2013 estimates, there are now over 7 billion people on earth. Think about that in respect to the average life span today, which is around 79 years. That is a MASSIVE amount of people in a very short amount of time when you put that up against the Creationist’s estimate of the age of the Earth. It is absolutely feasible and logical that the entire population of the world could have come through one family! It also makes sense when you think about things like how Noah was able to build an ark (considering that humans, at the time, lived to be near 900 years old and he would have been a very wise man as a result). There are some fascinating studies on ancient ship building and how it’s very possible that many cultures derived their knowledge from Noah’s design!

    Anyway, I could go on. hehehe… Fun topic to explore for sure. The main reason I wanted to post what I did was because I was in a state of awe over the amazing design present and evident in Creation. I so much want people to think about this and really consider God. We need Him now more than ever in this world, but the world just keeps pushing Him farther away.

    Have an great week and thanks again for posting! 🙂

    Dave
