Most of us sooner or later think about what is going to happen when we pass on from this life here on Earth. Where will we go? What will we do? What will it be like?
Is God Real? Let's think for a minute about the concept of Intelligent Design. For example, if you left some alphabets cereal soaking in a bowl of milk and walked out of the room only to return a short time later to find a message in the bowl such as "Hello" you would know that someone with intelligence arranged the letters. It is not likely at all that the letters formed themselves into a word. You would know someone in the house surprised you with the message. Someone capable of thought. Someone who could "create" the message. I've never seen letters form themselves into a message on their own have you?
You can probably imagine that this website did not create itself either! No, it too was created by someone who is capable of thought. "Cause and Effect" is a simple law in our universe that shows us beyond a doubt empty space is not capable of thought or creating things. Especially not life. We got here because we were created by intelligent design. Have you ever taken a look at the amount of information that is embedded in human DNA (or the DNA of any living thing). What about the fact that Earth was placed exactly where it needed to be in the solar system for life. So was the moon, the sun, and even Jupiter. If you think about how you got here, and look at the evidence (you are surrounded by it) and think about it for yourself.... the evidence is overwhelming that there is a creator (aka God).
Consider This.... As you sit there reading these words you are traveling at about 880 Miles Per Hour (MPH) (faster if you are closer to the equator) just from the rotation speed of the Earth. You are also moving at 66,660 MPH around the sun. You are also moving at just over 660,000 (yes 660 THOUSAND) Miles Per Hour around the Milky Way Galaxy. You may feel like you are sitting still but, in fact you are traveling in multiple directions at once and at great speeds. These speeds and directions keep Earth on a stable orbit around the sun and give us just the right amount of gravity. There is no way Earth could just happen to be where it is in relation to the sun, and traveling at the speeds it is by chance. This is just one of THOUSANDS of examples that intelligent design is true.
The Bible A profound factor in evidence of intelligent design is the Bible. It's NEVER been proved wrong by anyone. It's been proven accurate many times over and has stood the test of time. Make no mistake! You were created and put here on Earth by God. He has set rules, but at the same time given each of us "free will" to choose if we want to follow the rules or not. The consequences for rejecting or ignoring God are very serious and not something that should be taken lightly. Think about where you want to spend FOREVER and take some time and learn about God, your creator. Find a good copy of the Bible such as the New American Standard Version. There are lots of "religions" out there. To be honest Religion will not save you. Being "Good" most of the time will not save you. Going to Church? Nope it won't save you. The only thing that will save you is a personal relationship with our savior Jesus Christ. Anything else is nonsense and designed to mislead you. Time For Learning... If you decide you want to learn more about Goddon't be misled by false teachings and other garbage that is being strewn around everywhere. Look at the simple facts and the evidence. Here are some good resources for more examples that God really does exist, which means you need to be "good to go" when you die. Don't play around with your future. Please take a minute and educate yourself about the things that are expected of you by God our Creator.
Genius The Movie is a very good perspective of our lost nature and what you must do to be right with God. I highly recommend it for everyone!
It's my hope that this article will at the very least get you thinking "outside" your normal daily routine and ponder where you will spend Eternity. If you are not certain of where you will go when you die, you really do need to take a look at the evidence around you and get yourself right with God. Don't listen to the lies, seek the truth. Educate yourself about what is expected of you. You only get one chance at this awesome gift of life. Don't get it wrong! Your eternity depends on it.
