” Do you NOT know? Have you NOT heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth! He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.”
If any christian is trying to defend there faith one of the first things they mention to anyone of another religion is this statement, ” How did the matter get there in order for the bang to happen?!?!?!” or “something had to exist for the bang to happen!” Which if you think about it is fairly true, how did the matter come from nothing in a big void in space where no life can exist except that which is already there?
As a college student and taking Geology one of the first things we talked about in my class is space and dealing with the Big Bang theory which is actually amazing if you take the time to actually study it. More of less fast geology lesson what happens is this
There is this cloud called the Nebula cloud which is basically gas/ elements that were collected from a star that died long ago are circulating around each other like a hurricane and all the energy and gravity that is in that is sucked into the middle of this ball of energy and suddenly BOOM! it explodes sending out this massive form of energy creating a nebula which is basically our galaxy. When this energy goes out it is so massive that traces of the big bang can actually still be detected to this day, but how does one who is a christian sit in a class like this and not wonder of think themselves, “wow God, you were there when that was created and formed!” “How can people not believe in Jesus?!?!”
I remember a couple of months back having a conversation with my grandfather about this hypothesis that I had going around my head (a theory is a hypothesis tested people!) that what if the power of the big bang was the prove of God’s existence?!?!
See remember in Genesis 1:1 -3″ In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, ” Let there be light, and there was light”
What if God speaking light into this world was God creating the big bang?!?!?!?! If it is then this would be a sign of God never ending power and strength to us! That means that God does exist and that God did create the world just with an amazing Bang! God didn’t just create us and not leave clues of his existence. It’s all around us if we take the time to actually look around us. See when God created us he already knew that we were going to question him and he already knew the things we were going to deal with but he also knew that we needed faith and he left us with Nature. Ever wonder why we are so drawn to nature and post artsy pictures of nature and caption it with something moving or I always feel close to God in nature, that’s simply because that’s God’s gift to us to show his infinite power and glory . All through scripture it talks about the creation of this earth proclaiming the work and glory of Jesus
“It is I who made the earth, and created man upon it I stretched out the heavens with My hands And I ordained all their host.”
” Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.”
“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you or speak to the earth, and it will teach you or let the fish in the sea inform you . Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”
” The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities- his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”
I think it is time especially as christian to start looking at science and realize that just maybe just maybe the more we look and study the world around us the more we will see God’s power and beauty. Everything that has life has to praise the Lord and everything that God created is a sign of his existence.
Now my hypothesis might be completely wrong but then it might be completely right, it still needs to be tested just like our faith and walk with the Lord does, but at the end of it God is the one who still created the earth and because of that I’m thankful.
“The more I study science the more I believe in God.”
