Our wonderful creator
Many people do not believe that there is a God, they believe that the world just spontaneously appeared out of nothing, thought up by no one. But there is proof that we have a creator and a God , and this proof is seen in ourselves , in the way we where created. When we see a sculpture and study its intricate details we know that the sculpture did not just spontaneously appear , there is no doubt that someone somewhere created this sculpture , spent many hours working on a lump of clay until it became a beautiful work of art . That is what we are a work of art and our artist is our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, he created us in his own image, perfect , flawless. ( And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.Genesis 1:26). So how can we then say " There is no God " if the proof of our creator is seen in our own intricate details , from the moment we are born , you can see the details on our tiny fingers and creases on our bodies the tiny hairs on our heads. Just like a sculpture we did not just appear out of no where, we have an artist a creator , just like every living thing does and that artist is God. ( I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalms139:14). And some may say if there is a God , then why do so many bad things happen in the world ? If there is a God and He has the power to stop all of this , why doesn't he?
A preacher and an atheistic barber were once walking through the city slums. Said the barber to the preacher: "This is why I cannot believe in a God of love. If God was as kind as you say, He would not permit all this poverty, disease, and squalor. He would not allow these poor bums to be addicted to dope and other character-destroying habits. No, I cannot believe in a God who permits these things."
The minister was silent until they met a man who was especially unkempt and filthy. His hair was hanging down his neck and he had a half-inch of stubble on his face. Said the minister: "You must not be a very good barber because you wouldn't permit a man like that to continue living in this neighborhood without a haircut and shave." Indignantly the barber answered: "Why blame me for that man's condition? I can't help it that he is like that. He has never come in my shop; I could fix him up and make him look like a gentleman!"
Giving the barber a penetrating look, the minister said: "Then don't blame God for allowing the people to continue in their evil ways, when He is constantly inviting them to come and be saved."
God created us and gave us the power of " Free Will " he does not control our actions ,thoughts, or every move, and our sin is what causes bad things to happen in the world, we musn't blame God for our actions. The bad things that happen in this world are a product of our and others sinful actions.
So stop and think for a moment about the things said in this paragraph, look at your own intricate details and take moment to decide what you believe.
