  • G_d Supporter on Genesis 1
    I believe that my life is a testimony for others. I am not a scientist, mathematician or a theologian. I do understand the differences and have experienced each one, as well as other important elements of life, when growing up. Cause and effect of falling off a bicycle on a gravel road, in shorts; Eating watermelon with friends and family on the fourth of July; Having too much fun in church with friends, forgetting about your Mom and her vise grip pinching ability; Giving your first girlfriend a ride on the back of your motorcycle; Learning you will burn in hell if you don't believe in Jesus. Hey, I am in. Who wants to burn in hell forever? Good to meet you Jesus. I always remembered him the morning after a late night with a few too many. Funny how pain brings us closer to him.

    Since then, my youth, I have had to learn how to live life; the hard way quite frequently, but . Marriage, choices of friends, questioning others and my religious beliefs and observations of the lifestyles, decisions and results of myself and others. Without out science, math, life's experiences and religion, my life would be pretty empty. I would have to say though that religion has kept life more interesting and meaningful. I truly believe G_d exists simply because of the complexities a woman offers a man after marriage occurs. But more so because of the vulnerability to making poor decisions and the need of someone to go to for forgiveness, comfort and guidance to get back on track. That's not always possible with your average human being, but the few I can count on do a very good job.

    So G_d is the alpha and the omega, the ultimate love of my life and the one I can count on. I try and thank him in both times of need and times of joy. Father knows best is a reality here on earth and in heaven. My soul yearns too much for understanding that I should think I was formed by a blob, a mass of gas given off by a gas monster or that I was a number to the tenth power times X divided by pi, etc, etc, etc. Does a part of our DNA require some calculations? Yes. Divine calculations at that. And we have not even started talking about our soul.

    The Bible has more meaning than we may ever know; and it's due to a lack of daily commitment G_d wishes for us to have to know him, learn about his teachings and follow his word. Luckily there are a number of dedicated people that enable us to learn about the Bible through various teaching approaches and communication. [Careful of the money mongrels, cults and religious sects. They distort the truth and can ruin your life. (I enjoy Arnold Murray with Shepards Chapel.)] His letter to us, the Bible, is a multi-dimensional instruction book to us. Dedicated people today can clearly explain the inspiration that comes from the Bible. In doing so, they reveal meaning that touches each of us differently, depending on the happenings in our life at that time. It also has been validated by historical artifacts, witnesses, truths, wisdom and knowledge that can only come from G_d. It teaches today, what was and is to come. Jesus is a great teacher and through Him we can be forgiven and saved from our sins so that we can spend eternity in heaven with Him; free of the burdens we all face today. But freedom is not free here on earth or in heaven. We have to sacrifice our selves for the freedoms we enjoy here in America and so will we need to make sacrifices to claim our inheritance from G_d.

    So I believe that science, math, life experience and religion has been a culminating effect in teaching us that G_d does exist. Don't forget about common sense.
