The First Baptist Church is excited to announce that we now have a new pastor. His name is Brother Dwain Pollard and if you haven’t heard Bro. Pollard preach before, you should make a point to attend this coming Sunday morning. It is sure to be a blessing.
If you are an atheist, what is your theory of how the universe, and everything in it came into existence! Is it something like this? “In the beginning, there was nothing. Nothing at all. But at a moment in time, something happened – even though there was nothing for anything to happen in or with. Something caused a chemical reaction in chemicals that didn’t exist. This chemical reaction in non-existent chemicals must have spread to other non-existent chemicals. The reaction kept spreading in the nothing until there was this Big Bang explosion.This explosion of nothing caused all the uncountable celestial bodies to come into existence; moon, planets, stars, suns, solar systems, galaxies, comets and whatever else is out there, and all of them are rotating with incredible precision around other heavenly bodies and the whole universe is rotating around something!
Then, in this massive universe that’s made of nothing, something else happened – even though there was nothing for anything to happen with or in. On one tiny planet [now called earth] there were conditions needed for life, as in air, water, land, climate – and something else happened. Seems maybe another chemical reaction took place, and maybe caused some goop to form. That goop kept growing on more nothing, and 1 non-existent day maybe some non-existent lightning struck that goop and it came to life – and maybe it divided into plant goop, animal goop, human goop … ok! Enough of this nonsense. The chance of that theory being true is 0! Surely no one could believe such a lie! If you could, the goop would be in your head!
The truth makes much more sense, and is much easier to believe. Whether ou believe it or not has no bearing on truth being truth!
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 [Old Testament]
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:1-4 [New Testament]
