The Big Bang

Some refuse to believe in God and put all their faith in scientific theories. They feel rational people should reject the Bible’s fanciful version that man and the universe suddenly appeared from nothing. So they accept the alternative: the theory of evolution. But just because people believe that life evolved, does it shield them from the inevitable conclusion that original life appeared from nothing?

Evolutionary thinking endeavors to answer the question of origins by linking one life form with another over millions of years. When faced with the enormous improbabilities of many biological designs evolving in stages, evolutionists will say: ‘Given enough time, anything can happen.’
However, on this theoretical journey to link all life, the question must still be asked: How did the first life originate on our lifeless planet? Did it miraculously pop up from nothing, or did it arrive on some cosmic taxi?
If it is suggested first life arrived from another planet, the question then arises: Where did life on that planet originate? Continued questioning will reach the point of asking: Where did the first source of life originate? There are only two conclusions: (1) it has always been there without beginning, or (2) there was nothing and suddenly there was something. This is the dilemma of the origin of the universe. It either does not have a start (infinity past), or there was nothing and suddenly there was something (the Big Bang theory).
Atheists reject: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1), yet they demonstrate unprecedented faith in their belief that: in the beginning there was nothing – the nothing exploded and gradually created everything.
Isn’t it odd that some cannot believe in an infinite God who created the universe from nothing; but, instead, would rather accept that our infinitely complex universe (which the human finite mind cannot possibly comprehend), designed itself from a Big Bang (0=1). We should question putting faith in scientific theories which refuse to accept that something may originate from nothing – yet ironically start their founding premise with a Big Bang.
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. (Psalm 19:1)

The $1 Million Dollar Question:

Will you go to Heaven when you die? Here’s a quick test:
Q. Have you ever told a lie?
Q. Have you ever stolen anything?
Q. Have you ever used God’s name in vain?
Q. Have you ever lusted over someone?
Q. Have you ever hated someone?

If you have done these things, God sees you as a liar, a thief, a blasphemer, an adulterer-at-heart, and a murderer-at-heart. And this is only 5 of God’s Ten Commandments (a/k/a “God’s Law”). And the Bible warns that on the Day of Judgment, God will punish you in a terrible place called Hell. But, there is “good news”! God is not willing that any should perish. Sinners broke God’s Law, but Jesus paid their fine by shedding His sinless blood on a cross ~2,000 years ago. This means that God can legally dismiss their case (and yours!): “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) Then Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death. Today, repent (turn away from your sins), put your complete trust in Jesus, and confess Jesus as your Lord & Savior… and God will give you eternal life as a free gift.

The $1 Million Dollar Myth:

Contrary to popular belief, being a “good person”, doing “good deeds”, or being “religious” will not get you a ticket to heaven! Many people are hoping God will dismiss their sins because their good deeds outweigh their bad deeds. They further hope that because God is “good” he will let them go unpunished and enter heaven. However, because God is “good” he must by nature punish sinners (i.e., God would not be a good judge if he let criminals go free). The Bible states: “There is no one on earth who is righteous, no one who does what is right and never sins.” (Ecclesiastes 7:20) The Bible also states: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9) And finally, think about this, if your goodness could save you, Jesus would have died in vain (i.e., for no good reason). The Bible states: “I (Jesus) am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father (God) except through me. (John
14:6) Friends, please don’t “roll-the-dice” and gamble your eternal life on the life-threatening lie that being a “good person” will get you to heaven.

Yes, today I am deciding to follow Jesus:

Here is a prayer you can use to receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord & Savior. It is a suggested prayer – the key is that you are speaking from your heart.
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me turn away from sin going forward. I believe that your Son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus into my heart and I confess him as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank You for sending your Holy Spirit to help me obey you, and to do your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”

Congratulations! And welcome to God’s family!
