Like it or not, everybody has some sort of religious beliefs. Whether we go to a place of worship or not, we all have some ideas about where we came from and what happens when we die. For most people in the world, their ideas and faith are misplaced and don’t match reality. They go through life with little understanding of the purpose of their existence or answers to the bigger questions.
The simple truth is that we all have a Creator who has put us here and who will choose our destiny. The Creator has been revealed to us in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” and He also calls Himself the, “Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” “All things were created for Him and by Him” If these truths aren’t central to your faith or religion, your religion is not based on reality and is likely worthless. I’m confident, though that each of us has a spark of curiosity or interest at some level in finding the answer to how we got here and why.
When it comes to your Creator, Jesus, you can run but you cannot hide! You can act as though He doesn’t exist, but He is more real than we are! If you want to find out what real love is, read His book, the Bible. The Book of John is a good place to start, “
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lights every man that comes into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came to his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them He gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that comes after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
16 And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.
17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him.
Science has gone off course and is sailing onto the rocks. If that’s what you’re putting your faith in, you’re in for a rude awakening. The One that made you has better plans
