Have you ever considered this topic with some serious thought? Have you ever considered questions like, “What if there is life after death,” or “What if there is a God?” How would these questions affect you?
Some may say the existence of God is false—just something that was invented—or they may say it is for people who want to be religious. Think about how the matter of evolution, which has been taught in schools and colleges, is accepted as “fact.” Yet, it has not been proven. No one was there when it all supposedly began. For something to happen, there must be a cause. There cannot be an effect without one. Are we all just a product of an unexplainable accident, with no purpose for why we are here? Or are we more valuable than that, made in the image of God? The intricate beauty of the eye, a delicate flower, air we breathe, children we embrace, times we cry, the things we love, and our memories—these are just a few things that speak of the purpose and worth of the individual.
There are many different beliefs about God. Some say that GOD is just an opinion. While everyone is entitled to their opinion, truth is something that is undeniable. Truth is truth no matter what people think; it does not change. God is true regardless of people’s opinion. Think about the hundreds of Ph.D. scientists from all over the world (US, UK, China, Russia, Japan) who completely disagree with Darwin’s theory of evolution. These are people associated with universities such as Yale, Princeton, UCLA, MIT, and Stanford. Although these people are not necessarily Christians, and may not believe the Bible, they are “skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life” (dissentFromDarwin.org).
Compared with evolution, Creation has a multiplicity of documented evidence, most of which has been made obvious through the message of the Bible. Though it is a book penned by 40 human scribes, spanning 1,600 years, across 3 continents, and through 3 different languages, it was written with ONE message. It plainly speaks on topics like where we came from (Genesis 1:1, 26-27), why we are here (Revelation 4:11), why we have wars, sickness, suffering, and death (Romans 5:12), and where we are going after we die (Revelation 20:11-15). These are topics relevant to every generation. It is a Book which has stood the test of time, predating man’s discoveries thousands of years prior, whether historical, scientific, (ex. circle of earth, ocean currents, air having weight, parting of light, hydrological cycle, life in the blood, springs in the sea, etc.) or archeological, (predictions of ancient kingdoms and their destruction), among others. It also contains prophetical accuracy concerning Jesus Christ, our past and our future.
Regardless of advancements in any sphere of life over thousands of years, the basic nature of man has not changed and never will. This is because of sin, a problem no one can solve except One who is perfect and unaffected by sin: God. Sin is failing to meet God’s standard of perfection in word, thought, or deed. Thus, when we sin, we have rebelled against God Himself. Everyone is born a sinner, bound to this world and its sin nature. Therefore, everyone is born beneath God’s standard. The good news is that God has already solved this in the Person of Jesus Christ (God in the flesh), One who is perfect and unbound by this world. One who never had a beginning (John 8:58) and created all things (Colossians 1:16-18). Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
However, one could say that this is based on blind faith or “personal opinion.” Yes, at some point it is faith, but this is not blind faith or an opinion. This is not about blindly believing because the Bible claims that it was written by the Spirit of God (2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 3:16). Rather, it is the enlightenment of Divine light from above. Now, one who was blindly following their own ideology is made alive by God in new life—regeneration (John 3:3-8); this is aided by the Scriptures. They also see the purpose for why they are here. This is not fantasy, philosophy, or psychology, but the reality of what God has done in bringing them to Himself. This is truth. Religion (including atheism or agnosticism) is a man-made philosophy, but Christ has an enduring, loving relationship with His creation. By His grace and sacrifice, He has made His children sons and daughters of God, and not because of our own works of goodness, but His (John 1:12,13, Titus 3:5).
Not only do those who have accepted Christ understand why they are here, but there is also a wonderful change that takes place in them because of this belief. On the tombstone of John Newton, who wrote the hymn Amazing Grace, it states, “John Newton, once an infidel and libertine, a servant of slaves in Africa, was, by the rich mercy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, preserved, restored, pardoned, and appointed to preach the faith he had long labored to destroy!” Countless others from all walks of life and irrespective of educational background, can testify of that scenario—where they fled religion/ignorance and entered into a relationship that affects eternity. Eternal reality, which is after physical death, depends on what you will do with Jesus Christ.
Dear friend, our estimation of ourselves falls short of what our true nature is. We think we have good in ourselves, but God says that “all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6) and that “whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all” (James 2:10). We believe we have good moral standards, but God says, “all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23) and “There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God” (Romans 3:11). We think we are not as bad as others like Hitler or a serial killer, but God declares, “How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water?” (Job 15:16). We think sincerity is good enough, but God says, “How then can man be justified with God? Or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?” (Job 25:4). We think we can come to God by the good deeds that we have done. However, God declares, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
I would like to leave a few verses of Scripture with you. I hope you will give serious consideration to this thought and not rest until you have the assurance that God has taken your sin away through the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. The cross is where He died on your behalf, shed His blood, and rose again, conquering death and hell. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). There was once a sinner who realized that he was not deserving of God’s mercy, seeing how bad he was before a holy God. In humility and submission, he cried out, “God be merciful to me a sinner” (Luke 18:13). Jesus places great importance in something you possess, your soul, which will live forever after your physical body dies. “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:26).
Dear friend, call out to Christ, turn from your sin, realize that you as a sinner have offended a good God. Be willing to forsake it, believe on Him, and ask Him for mercy. Do not rest until HE gives you rest. Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). “Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts” (Hebrews 3:15). Studying the New Testament with an open mind, beginning in the books of John and Romans, will help you further understand what has been shared here and can help you find peace with God through Jesus Christ and not through religion, good works, or going to a church, temple, or mosque. “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
