The First Cause
We all know that things have a beginning, a middle and an end. In other words, cause and effect. If you follow the chain from effect to it’s cause and so on, all the way backward, you’ll reach the first cause. God, who caused all else.
The Overwhelming Consistancy of Nature
If our home, Planet Earth, had been an inch closer to the sun, it would be so hot we would have never survived to burn up. An inch further away, and we’d be a frozen wasteland in the depths of space. The consistant movement of all the planets through space is overwhelmingly an amazing fact.
Like human law, natural law seems naturally to have come from a law giver.
And from this comes intelligent design, a completely different subject. One which asks the question of whether people can choose not to believe in the faith, and whether children can receive a qualit education. We’re not fascists. I’m concerned with a different question of design – so please, however much is possible, hold apart the message from its perverted use.
A blind watch maker, well, you already know the rest.
God is of course the definition of goodness, and Hell isn’t so much a place where souls burn on brimstone, but the absense of God. Without this ultimate creator of everything there would be no good or evil.
There is great injustice in the world. Genocide is going on, unchallenged by George W Bush who invaded Iraq
looking for imaginary weapons to fix humanitarian problems like the ones we’re ignoring in Darfur, Sudan. Hundreds of thousands of people have been murdered since 2003, and millions are homeless. Many will continue to die horrible deaths, largely at the hands of the janjaweed. It is only in death that these wrongs will be righted, as God takes the good into Heaven and leaves the rest. Without God, the world would ultimately be devoid of justice.
