He is Real - Glimpse of Infinity

My Case for God. My Case for Christ. He is Real

I don’t know of any other way to put this: God is real. You may have read a book or heard a lecture that gave you ammunition not to believe in God; whatever the case, I would challenge you to reconsider your viewpoint.

I often hear, “Well, if God is real, then why…” (and you can fill in the blank). Why do bad things happen to good people? Why are people raped and murdered? Why does God allow evil in the world? Why do natural disasters happen? Why are some people born into riches while others are born into poverty? Why does God not answer me when I call out to Him? Why does God allow war? Why wasn’t God there for me when I needed Him most? Why did God allow that accident? Why does God allow cancer? Why didn’t God save my child?

These are all valid questions. But just because you can’t answer them, or they anger you, that doesn’t nullify the existence of God. 

Let me ask you a question. Do you honestly believe that this world randomly appeared through a big bang in space, without any plan or purpose? And then somehow, some way, we just evolved from single cells into mindful, meaningful, idea-generating male and female humans? And even though we can’t make sense of it, we’ve become morally objective beings that can determine right from wrong, love from hate, and so on? 

Is that what makes up your belief system? Does that make rational sense? 

Consider this exercise: Let’s put all of the arguments on both sides of the fence away for a moment. And by both sides of the fence I mean, God created the world versus random chance created the world. Now with everything aside let me ask you this simple question:

Based solely on your life experience to date, which would you say holds more merit:

  1. When I look around, everything seems like it happened by chance; I don’t feel a greater purpose than living my life and then dying.
  2. It would seem to me like there’s something bigger out there; this world does not seem like an accident.

If you’re answer was (a), I appreciate your point of view. Please allow me the remainder of this book to state my case as to why I side with (b).

Have you ever watched a baby being born? Have you ever planted a seed in the ground and watched it grow? Have you ever watched birds migrate thousands of miles to the exact same spot each year? Have you ever considered the fact that the earth is traveling through space at 66,700 miles per hour? Have you ever just stood outside and observed all of the fascinating things around you?
