There’s a lot of logic behind the existence of an all-powerful creator. If one considers carefully how everything ultimately converges into a singularity, it begins to make sense. For instance, if we rewound time, we would find much less apparent diversity for all life forms on earth. Though we don’t have time machines, we do have imaginations which aren’t just good for escaping reality, but also for logically interpolating missing details between the ‘key frames’ (if you will) of history, or should I say archived events (for those who would argue that much of history is “HIS” story and therefore not to be believed). We can save that tangent for another time. For now, just hear me out. Everything converges into a singularity. For instance, the 7-8 Billion people on modern day earth came from LESS people! In they year 500 BCE, it is estimated that the world population was approximately 100 million…closer to that singularity!
Now, 100 million is a lot to have in the bank, but compared to 7+ billion, this was a lot less people per square mile, which was much…MUCH less population density. In fact, the estimate of 100 million people is slightly less than the current population of Aruba (the smallest island in the group of Dutch Caribbean islands); and that was the WORLD population!
Thanks for your attention so far. Now, even those 100 million or so people came from a smaller amount of people! Therefore, if the world population density has exploded by more than 7000 times in just 2.5 millenia, is the account of Adam and Eve so hard to believe? If one can believe that all dogs originally descended from two wolves or wolf-like ancestors, and that almost all large cats like lions, tigers, panthers, etc. descended from the Megantereon and the Smilodon, or that every animal family no matter how ethnically diverse came from two original “kinds,” then why is it hard to believe in the only God who is ever credited for having created two of every kind (male and female)? No other “god” of any other religion has done this. Instead, what we see in world mythology are various “so-called gods” (as the Bible refers to them in 1 Cor 8:5) who specialize in something…(e.g. “gods of the seas, winds, lightning and thunder, wisdom etc.).
If you’ve made it this far, please tell me who is chief among them? Also were not all of them made or sired? Every ancient god (so called) has an origin. Who preceded them? Who has existed eternally so as to have preceded all things that were made…because whoever that is, whoever has all the power to make all things that then possess power within yet are subject to His laws is the God of which the Bible speaks.
This is merely a logical argument, but drawing nearer to God requires more than just reasoning. It’s learning to fear Him in a healthy way, acknowledging His power and authority far exceed ours and rightfully so. It means understanding we’re flawed yet He still loves us and calls us to a higher, better purpose. In fact, God is love and loved us first, before anyone even knew how to love. Drawing closer to God also requires an acknowledgement of, and a faith in the fact that He sent His only begotten son Yeshua (Jesus the Christ) to die for our sins so that we could be reconciled to Him. Unfortunately, few commit to this, not because they lack the intelligence to cone to the knowledge of God, but because they lack the willingness to do so. Moreover, the following scriptures explain the veil that limits spiritual understanding.
“the ‘god’ of this world (a.k.a “Satan”) has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” -2 Cor 4:4
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” -1 Cor 1:18
People doing their thang…do NOT know their lost. They are NOT necessarily unintelligent…in fact, they are “ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” -2 Tim 3:7
