Just once wouldn’t you love for someone to simply show you the evidence for God’s existence?
Well, here is an attempt to candidly offer some of the reasons which suggest that God exists. It is like if someone refuses to believe that people have walked on the moon, then no amount of information is going to change their thinking.
When it comes to the possibility of God’s existence, the Bible says that there are people who have seen sufficient evidence, but they have suppressed the truth about God.
On the other hand, for those who want to know God if He is there, He says, “You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart, I will be found by you.”(2) Before you look at the facts surrounding God’s existence, ask yourself, If God does exist, would I want to know Him? Water…colorless, odorless and without taste, and yet no living thing can survive without it.
A brain that deals with more than a million pieces of information every second, while evaluating its importance and allowing you to act on the most pertinent information…can us say mere chance brought about such an astounding organ?
When NASA launches a shuttle mission, it is assumed a monkey didn’t write the plan, but intelligent and knowledgeable minds. Imagine looking at Mount Rushmore, in which the likenesses of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt are carved.
Given infinite time, wind, rain and chance, it is still hard to believe something like that, tied to history, and was randomly formed in the side of a mountain.
This article only touches on a few amazing aspects of our world: the Earth’s position to the sun, some properties of water, one organ in the human body. The distinguished astronomer Sir Frederick Hoyle showed how amino acids randomly coming together in a human cell is mathematically absurd. When one considers the intricacies of our life and universe, it is reasonable to think that an intelligent, loving Creator provided for everything we need for life. And in areas like courage, dying for a cause, love, dignity, duty and compassion, where did these come from?
For example, a pair of pliers is a machine consisting of four parts — the two handles — with their grippers, a bolt, and a nut. No sane person believes that a pair of pliers just happened as the result of a combination of “time” and “chance.” Obviously, a “machine” reflects design. If it is the case that something as simple as a screw, or a pair of pliers, contains the sort of intricacy that suggests design, would it not be more reasonable to conclude that an object evincing even greater complexity would also reflect design, hence suggest a designer? Accordingly, if it can be shown that the universe itself is a vast “machine,” what would that indicate about its origin? A few years ago, atheist Carl Sagan produced a PBS television series detailing the marvels of the universe. The imminent historian Charles Rollin, of the University of Paris, once commented upon why the Greek philosophers argued for a great Thinker behind the universe. Let us reflect upon several aspects of what some scientists call the “functional harmony” of the universe (Barnett, 22). Moreover, the sun, along with its planet-family, is traveling in a gigantic orbit within the Milky Way galaxy at a speed of some 600 thousand miles per hour.
Here are two intriguing questions: First, why do the heavenly bodies move in a circular configuration?
Sir Isaac Newton’s “first law of motion” asserts that a stationary body will remain at rest until some force generates its movement.
The balance that keeps the planets adjusted correctly in their relationship to the sun is truly astounding. Another remarkable feature of this “great machine” is the precision with which its integral parts work. As mentioned above, the earth is moving in its 600 thousand mile orbit around the sun at the speed of more than 1,000 miles per minute. However, this decrease is so minute that the length of a day will not be altered more than a fraction of a second in centuries.
As the earth travels in its orbit around the sun, it must make minute adjustments to conform to its elliptical “track.” Our planet digresses from a straight line one-ninth of an inch every eighteen miles.
How is it that scientists can predict, with stunning accuracy, such events as solar and lunar eclipses? Consider this interesting bit of history: Prior to the year 1846, the planet Neptune was unknown to earth’s astronomers. In the early 1800’s, two scientists, John Adams in Great Britain, and Jean Leverrier in France, each working independently, had noticed strange behavior in the orbital movements of the planet Uranus. Working strictly “on paper” with mathematical calculations, each man — unaware of the other’s labor — predicted where the mysterious planet ought to be. I’m going to ask you to bear with me today because this blog post is different than anything I have ever posted in my 10+ years of blogging.
I am also going to be borrowing from the wisdom of a very good friend of mine as we dig deep into this topic. Have you ever wanted something but deep down in your heart realized that it’s not right? There will always be a time of training and personal development to build the talents you need to accomplish your dreams and goals. Yes, but God is big enough to take our bad decisions and make them good, if we allow him to work in our lives. This is such a funny thing to pray for, but I think at one time in our lives, I believe we have all prayed that prayer. But in all my time as a christian, now over 20 years, I have never seen God open heaven and give me more money.
When we pray, we must understand that God is interested in developing us as people and to make us the people He needs us to be, we need to grow. One of the most interesting ways I have seen Him develop people is in the area of personal finances. Having an increase in our income or more money in our bank account is actually  a gift given to us, but it is a gift that we must be able to show that we can handle, otherwise it will be taken away from us. Many people end up receiving an increase only to use it all on worldly things that have no long-term value. So if we understand that increase if a gift from God then we should also understand Luke 12: 48 – “… to he who is given much, much is expected…” When God gives to you, He is expecting you to be wise with what He has given you, and starting a business and receiving a small income is the start of that wisdom of being able to handle much. I wonder how many times God has warned you about something coming for your future and suggested to you to make a change, but because of stubbornness, closed mind or heart or just not asking Him, you have missed His voice and so have had to go through the trouble He warned you about. I remember just before I started to really build our business, I started to see that the company I was working for was having some real trouble, I knew I had to do something, so I went into 3 days of prayer and fasting. He had given me an opportunity…is He giving you one, this maybe why you are asking, What does God want me to do?
So I took that opportunity, stopped praying for more money and just started to thank God for the increase and people he was bringing me. Theses are all clues that God maybe speaking to you (Can I say that God IS speaking to you?) about making a change and stepping out onto the water.
You may think your job is secure at the moment, you may believe that your comfortable or that you have enough… but what if God is saying “Hey, I am putting this in front of you now so that you can make some extra money so that when something happens, you won’t have as much pain…” you see, doing something else, like running a business from home in your part-time, does not have to be all-consuming. For many people, they don’t move because of fear, but for others it is because of laziness. I am an RN & have given a lot of ammunition for able bodied to make $ sharing my products. After reading this post and chewing on it for a few minutes, I think you were probably talking to me and didn't even know it! Great article – most of us are in a conflict with what God wants from us versus what we want from God.
About TyTy Tribble is an Internet Entrepreneur and Work At Home Dad who lives in Seattle, Washington with his wife, Richelle and two children Emma and Tyler. I have had to yank that lie right out of the ground, burn it like chaff. I know we mean well, of course we do.
But I’m learning to just go do them because I love to do them, and I love to do them with Immanuel.

May our daily work and our voice and our words and our prayers matter in our homes and our churches and our neighbourhoods (right there is the whole world).
Another of the gazillion reasons I love you, you read my mind and speak my Father’s heart. The most powerful thing that someone ever prayed for me was for me to stop knowing so much about God so that I could start experiencing Him. Oh that I will get to the point where all that I do is not tied up in my identity…just an overflow. Since I’m the pastor of a contemporary worship service, the question we always obsess over is: are we worshiping or performing?
14“For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property.
15To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. 16He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more.
18But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money.
27Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. Again, big difference between SERVING (out of a love relationship with Christ), and being USED. I come away even more challenged – but I want to work with God, partner with God, let God direct me. One of the things I love about your writing is that it always gives me something to think about. Next time you have an opinion about a spiritual concept or idea, make sure it squares with what scripture says. But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. If a person opposes even the possibility of there being a God, then any evidence can be rationalized or explained away. Satellite footage of astronauts walking on the moon, interviews with the astronauts, moon rocks…all the evidence would be worthless, because the person has already concluded that people cannot go to the moon. Throughout history, in all cultures of the world, people have been convinced there is a God. Billions of people, who represent diverse sociological, intellectual, emotional, educational makeups…all came to the same conclusion that there is a Creator, a God to be worshipped. The complexity of our planet points to a deliberate Designer who not only created our universe, but sustains it today. The Earth’s size and corresponding gravity holds a thin layer of mostly nitrogen and oxygen gases, only extending about 50 miles above the Earth’s surface. The moon creates important ocean tides and movement so ocean waters do not stagnate, and yet it restrains our massive oceans from spilling over across the continents. Plants, animals and human beings consist mostly of water (about two-thirds of the human body is water).
Water in plants can therefore flow upward against gravity, bringing life-giving water and nutrients to the top of even the tallest trees.
But on our Earth, there is a system designed which removes salt from the water and then distributes that water throughout the globe.
Your brain takes in all the colors and objects you see, the temperature around you, the pressure of your feet against the floor, the sounds around you, the dryness of your mouth, even the way this article appears to you on your screen. If people are merely products of physical evolution, “survival of the fittest,” why do we sacrifice for each other? A wheel, a lever, and a screw are classified as simple machines because these devices transmit or change the application of energy.
Surely here is a gigantic machine which makes us stand in awe and wonder at the power of the creator who could design such a machine and put it into operation” (67; emphasis added). He taught at Cambridge and Princeton, and his application of mathematics to both physics and astronomy gained for him a world-wide reputation as a first-rate scientist. In this volume the professor employed another analogy to express his awe for the great stellar community of which we are citizens.
Traveling as far back in time as we can, brings us not to the creation of the picture, but to its edge; the creation of the picture lies as much outside the picture as the artist is outside his canvas.
By this expression, they allude to the fact that there are celestial “laws” which enable astronomers to make precise calculations and predictions. The sun is a huge ball of gases (865 thousand miles in diameter) that is spinning like a top.
If an orbital trip should be completed, it would take 200 million years to achieve one revolution. Since the earth is orbiting the sun at such a phenomenal speed, why doesn’t it go flying off into space? Because its orbital movement functions in harmony with another principle in nature — that of centrifugal force. This might well be expected in view of the effect of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which suggests that a running-down process is characteristic of the entire universe (cf.
For instance, astronomers confidently affirmed that on March 9, 1997, a total solar eclipse, lasting 2 minutes and 50 seconds, would span a territory of 221 miles in Mongolia and Siberia.
They surmised that perhaps the gravitational pull of some unknown planet was affecting Uranus. Yet very few of these people look at examples of people who have achieved what they are looking for. I am not sure that God takes it away, or the world does by lack of judgement on what to do with the increase. Many get further and further into debt, rather than using their increase to get out of debt and the bondage that it brings. We believe that we all need to do whatever it takes to remove it from our lives and live in the freedom that comes from not being bound to a corporation or an individual because money is owed. Do you spend you little bit on more alcohol or partying or do you save some of it, making sure you are putting money away for a rainy day or a plan for the future? I got on my hands and knees before God, gave up food with the full intent to hear from Him and get His direction. He said to me that He gave me the way out of the problem we were facing 3 years previously and hadn’t done a thing with it. It is not that hard to build something that will give you an extra $1000 – $2000 per month.
They can see the storm on the horizon, and instead of getting under cover, building shelter or even going to harvest, they roll over and go to sleep. I truly think God has been trying to kick start me on this project and I haven't latched on as enthusiastically as He would like.
I had a business drop into my lap when I wasn't looking anymore that changed our lives in a huge way ( healthwise) so when the going gets tough I am reminded that GOD gave it to me so HE will make a way. In co-creation with the creator, you’re a namer, a maker, an altar builder, a lifter-up of the name and the Cross, and you are a pilgrim, a disciple, made in the image of God, you are the one who walks with God, no shame.
However, when you love someone…especially someone who is perfect and whose will is perfect (ie only God), you want to be useful to them, you want to help them accomplish their goals. Nothing like having an opinion about scripture without actually reading what scripture, you know, actually says.
It’s about Kingdom living and giving space for the Holy Spirit to work in our lives as we work in the lives of others. Spoken in dimly lit bars, tennis courts and coffee shops by people who have never liked the thought of being used…by anyone. Some of you have completely missed the point, because you have focused so hard on doctrine that you don’t see Sarah, or her heart, or her story. You’ll see why the characteristics of water are uniquely suited to life…It has an unusually high boiling point and freezing point.

Evaporation takes the ocean waters, leaving the salt, and forms clouds which are easily moved by the wind to disperse water over the land, for vegetation, animals and people. Only a mind more intelligent and knowledgeable than humanity could have created the human brain.
Harding, Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy at the University of Arkansas, authored a volume titled, Astronomy — The Splendor of the Heavens Brought Down to Earth.
On this view, discussing the creation of the universe in terms of time and space is like trying to discover the artist and the action of painting, by going to the edge of the canvas. Since matter does not possess the ability to move itself, one must assume that when the stars and planets were made, someone started them moving. If the adjustment was as much as an eighth of an inch, earth’s surface would be a blazing oven (Science Digest, 124). When America’s astronauts traveled to the moon in July of 1969, intricate mathematical calculations had to be made in order to insure that they would arrive safely at their lunar destination. Such declarations are only possible in view of the fact that meticulous laws are regulating our solar system.
So when we are confused, it is likely that we are not really listening to what God is telling us, instead listening to our own selfish desires. Unfortunately not everyone understands this, and so they are continually living off their credit cards or borrowing money. Do you save some for marketing, or do you spend it all on that “sparkly object” you just had to have? We have an international business, leaders all over the world and freedom that most people only ever dream about, but if I didn’t listen to God, things would may have been totally different.
It would be something that would have pretty wide range appeal and I think would be very valuable.
They’re not my pathway to God, or my status updates to the Most High, my progress reports. That if we love and communion with God, and then do what we want…it will naturally be a life that reflects that missional, redemptive character of God anyway? You are spot on – God wants us to simply walk alongside Him, and our lives to be an outpouring of our relationship with Him. Likewise here I love that you make it clear that God wants to redeem and restore us and to work through us, but ‘use’ us? Perhaps my favorite line; May our daily work and our voice and our words and our prayers matter in our homes and our churches and our neighbourhoods (right there is the whole world).
Thanks again Sarah, for reaching into my life and making me take a fresh perspective on things. What a way with words you have, and thanks so much for stopping by my place with the Women’s day link-up.
If Earth were larger, its atmosphere would contain free hydrogen, like Jupiter.(4) Earth is the only known planet equipped with an atmosphere of the right mixture of gases to sustain plant, animal and human life. Water allows us to live in an environment of fluctuating temperature changes, while keeping our bodies a steady 98.6 degrees. It is a system of purification and supply that sustains life on this planet, a system of recycled and reused water.
At the same time your brain keeps track of the ongoing functions of your body like your breathing pattern, eyelid movement, hunger and movement of the muscles in your hands.
Our conscience can best be explained by a loving Creator who cares about the decisions and harmony of humanity. They consist of a number of integrated parts which function harmoniously, presumably for the accomplishment of some purpose.
This brings us very near to those philosophical systems which regard the universe as a thought in the mind of its Creator, thereby reducing all discussion of material creation to futility” (317; emphasis added). It travels a distance of 595 million miles in the year it takes to make the entire journey.
Gravity describes a current process, but the law itself does not address the what (or who) it was that caused matter to commence its well-orchestrated movement. He yearns to walk with you, to be with you, to see you become fully human, fully alive, fully your own self. Is the singer trying to showcase her talent or is she singing in a way that the congregation can sing along? By as you wonderfully point out- as parents we love our kids because they are a beloved son or daughter.
We are to be a family, a community, bound by relationship– not whether we all use the same word the same way. Sure, Mary responded to her call by asking God to make her His doule – a servant, a female slave to God. If someone violently grabs a child from a family and rapes that child, there is an anger and revulsion and a rage to confront that act as evil, regardless of the culture.
I keep having this nagging voice in the back of my head telling me that I need to get going on this project.
I can allow God to breathe through me and as I invite Him to be part of my life, He invites me to be part of His Kingdom.
Take a full glass of water, add a cup of sugar, and nothing spills over the edge; the water simply absorbs the sugar.
Thus, centrifugal force pushing outward, and gravity pulling inward, keep the earth in perfect suspension around the sun. Accordingly, from the time the Apollo spacecraft lifted off the earth, until it arrived at the moon — three days later — the lunar orb had traveled more than 165 thousand miles from where it had been on launch-day. Not God manipulating or puppeteering us – he tipped his own hand right there in Isaiah with the word about the Word, he is God with us. I love the idea of letting all the good stuff we do be a natural consequence of keeping company with Jesus. I love that you highlighted how God wants to love us, walk with us, disciple us, and be with us.
Often the very fact that we talk about trying to worship instead of perform is itself a performance, a pious way of talking in which we need for other people to know that we’re thinking about our worship correctly. This property of water means that thousands of chemicals, minerals and nutrients can be carried throughout our bodies and into the smallest blood vessels.
How do we explain a universal law in the conscience of all people that says murder for fun is wrong? The Church needs power and influence, and we need to play our part (don’t ask too many questions, they only get you in trouble, now). To be used sounds so predatory so impersonal so disconnected so self serving in debased way. It has been estimated that it would take a steel cable at least 8,000 miles in diameter (comparable to the diameter of our earth) to equal the strength of the force which ties this planet to the sun (Stoner, p. And as I look around this coffee shop and silently pray, “Where are you at work here, Lord?
Even a fractional variance in the Earth’s position to the sun would make life on Earth impossible.
Without affecting the makeup of the substances it carries, water enables food, medicines and minerals to be absorbed and used by the body.
The Earth remains this perfect distance from the sun while it rotates around the sun at a speed of nearly 67,000 mph.
It is also rotating on its axis, allowing the entire surface of the Earth to be properly warmed and cooled every day.
