As I have often written in DIG before, I come from a scientific and mathematical background with regards to my education.
In the past I believed in evolution and the Big Bang, and I now deliberately say believe.
As a young man I just accepted what “science” told me as I did not believe in God, but looking back I can see that I was not being honest.
I just accepted everything that was contrary to the church, the Bible and faith.
Now the more I read and study science the more I believe in a Creator God.
At the moment I am reading a book called “The Universe in Your Hand”, a book all about cosmology and the universe.
As I am reading this book I keep thinking how awesome God is.
When you think about it there is only two ways the universe could be here.
Either it was created by God (or an Intelligent Designer or whatever you want to call Him) or it came from nothing as described in the Big Bang.
Now I have come to realise that it requires faith to “believe” in both, as there is not the “scientific evidence” available to prove either.
Now what is the most silly to believe; that God created it or it came from nothing?
It almost takes more “faith” to believe it came from nothing.
The truth I now believe is that God created this universe and everything in it and as I read about this universe I realise how big and awesome God is.
Yes, I agree that believing Genesis 1 v 1 takes faith, but so does the theory of the Big Bang.
Speak this out today….”Thank you Lord that you are the Creator of everything and thank you that you are my Creator”.
Genesis 1 v 1…..In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth
