This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #392 titled, “Some People Have the Absurd Belief That There is No God.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.
All the wonders around you are accidental…
No almighty hand made a thousand billion stars. They made themselves. No power keeps them on their steady course. The earth magnetized itself to keep the oceans from falling off toward the sun. The top few inches of our land just happened to have topsoil, without which we would have no vegetables to eat, no grass for the animals whose meat is our food. No one put oil just deep enough into the earth to keep until we needed it. The winds that carry delicate seedlings to fertile places were created by no one. The inexhaustible envelope of air, only 50 miles deep, and of exactly the right density to support life, is just another law of physics.
But who invented physics? Who made the deposits of coal and iron and zinc and gold inside the earth? Nobody. It was all just another accident.
Water expands when it freezes, while other substances contract. This makes ice lighter than water and keeps it floating on the surface. Otherwise lakes would be solid ice down to the bottom and no fish could survive. Who made this arrangement?
Why does the earth spin at a certain speed without ever slowing down so that we have day and night? Who tilts it so that we have seasons?
What makes a light bulb light up? Electricity? What is it? Who showed it how to travel at lightning speed, making right angle turns and twists on a piece of wire without flying off? By the way, what is light? Who invented eyes to see light?
A young bird will migrate from Canada to Argentina. Who showed it the way? Who teaches a dog to tear up strips of paper into a fluffy pile for puppies about to be born?
Who teaches babies to cry when they are hungry or hurt? The human heart will beat for 70 or 80 years without faltering. How does it get sufficient rest between beats? A kidney will filter poison from the blood and leave good things alone. Who gave the human tongue flexibility to form words and a brain to understand them, but denied it to all the animals?
Illnesses have specific symptoms. Why this warning? Why not many illnesses with identical symptoms? Or no symptoms? Who put the medicines in the herbs and weeds? Did a small flower invent itself so that we could extract digitalis from it for sick hearts? Who put the healing power into penicillin?
It’s all just accidental? There is no God? That’s what some people say. What do YOU say?
Even with all of the abundance of evidence of God, man can never really know God until by faith he comes to know God’s Son, the Saviour, Jesus Christ. Jesus came to earth to show us what God is like. His life was the life of God lived out among men. God is love. We know this because Jesus Christ loved us — so much that He died for our sins upon the Cross. To those who believe in Him, He gives peace, forgiveness, and life — real life, eternal life with Him in Heaven.
God’s Plan of Salvation:
If you are not sure where you will go after you die, God can give you the certainty of spending eternity in Heaven with Him.
FIRST — He loves you, and sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for you on the Cross at Calvary. The Bible says in John 3:16, “”For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
SECOND — Each and every one of us is a sinner: The Bible says Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
THIRD — Salvation through Jesus Christ is the only remedy for sin in this world: The Bible says in Acts 4:12, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
FOURTH — You must receive Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour. The Bible says in John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
The moment you believe and trust in Jesus as your only hope of Salvation, you become transformed and born again. Not by words or actions, but by a life changing faith and sincerity to the Lamb of God are we redeemed. Realize that without Him, your soul is damned, then look to Him and invite Him into your life and by faith, be transformed.
The Bible states in Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
If you believe that Jesus Christ died in your place and rose again from the dead and you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.
