If God exists, why is most of the universe hostile to life? If you look at the universe it appears from what we can see that life as we know it could not exists. Earth is just a pale blue dot in a huge hostile universe. When we look at a satellite picture of the earth from the outermost reaches of space the earth looks like a tiny blue dot in the middle of an amazingly beautiful picture of chaos. If you look at the universe as pretty as it looks in pictures it is hostile to life, but does that make the case against God? In this video, you will find out why the earth actually makes a case for God.
Apologetics 101: Did God Create the Universe? How do you answer that question to a non-believer without using the Bible? Based on the apparent fine-tuning of the Universe the evidence points to a designer. This designer would have the characteristics of being: spaceless, timeless, immaterial, self-existent, infinite, intelligent, personal and purposeful. This is the same way that the Bible describes God. These are the attributes of the God of the Bible, discovered without referencing the Bible.
“God sent a man, John the Baptist, to tell about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony.”
In essence, the believer is the bridge between the unbeliever and Jesus. John the Baptist was described as a witness, born to proclaim all the wonders of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who was to take away the sins of the world. John’s primary purpose was to connect people with the Savior of their souls.
Now, just as John was called to be a witness, so is every believer. Our words and actions form the link between the lost and Christ. If we choose not to shine for Him, the unbeliever is left with no hope of redemption
As it was John’s responsibility to prepare for the first coming of Christ, so it is our responsibility to prepare for the second. How are we to do so? By proclaiming the glorious good news of redemption!
