Does God Exist?

Evolution teaches that everything just came out of nothing.  There is no God.  We are here on accident.  Life on earth is all there is.  This is it.  No purpose. No eternity.

Dennis Prager gave a great illustration on his radio program today.    He said that some scientists believe that if you put 1,000 monkeys in a huge room with 1,000 computers for eternity, something like Hamlet would be written by these monkeys.  This would somehow prove that there is no God and some things can be created by chance given enough time.

So these scientists put 100 monkeys in a room with 100 computers for a month to see what would happen.  Something surely would be written.  After one month, they discovered that not one word had been typed by those monkeys.  Not an "is" or a "the" even...nothing!  Furthermore, the keyboards got stuck because of all the monkey poop all over them.  So much for that theory.

For people to watch a baby be born, watch television shows about nature, see a sunset, admire the four seasons, etc. and not believe that there is a Creator behind it all is beyond me.  And to think that this Creator knows every hair on our head and calls us by name....Amazing!

Even more fascinating is that as soon as you believe, He comes to live in you and gives you the strength to handle what this world throws at you.   AND we no longer have to live under a large set of rules {the Law} and its many commandments but just this new commandment ~

And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment
I John 3:23

That is it!  You obey these simple commands and you will no longer be jealous of others {love wants the best for others and rejoices with those that rejoice}, you won't gossip about others {ditto}, you will please your husband and serve him {you truly want him to be happy because you love him so much}, you won't commit adultery, etc. 

You will believe in Jesus and walk in love.  That is fulfilling all the law and the commandments.  It's simple and so amazing.

So there is no excuse to not believe in God ~

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them;  for God has showed it to them.  For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and God-head; so that they are without excuse
Romans 1:19,20
