Emmanuel, God with us...

In my last post, I mentioned a song by Jars of Clay, asking where is God.
It is a question everyone asks, it makes us examine our faith while strengthening it at the same time.

Romans 1:19-20
19For the truth about God is known to them instinctively. God has put this knowledge in their hearts. 20From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God.
Creation - "Every time you see a shirt, you know it has a creator"
Design - "Every time you see a watch, you know it has a designer."
Art - "Every time you see art, you kno there is an artist."
Order - "Every time you see order, you know there is an orderer."

When you look around the universe, what do you see? You see a creater, a designer, an artist, and an orderer behind it, why would you not thing there is a Creator, a Designer, an Artist, and an Orderer behind the universe?

No one has yet been able to identify a single historical mistake anywhere in the Bible. If man wrote it, we would certainly find historical errors after all these years - but there are none.

Micah 5:2 tells us that the Messiah will be born in Bethlehem
Zechariah 11:12-13 says that this Messiah will be betrayed for 20 pieces of silver
Psalm 22 says that this messiah will be pierced in His hands and His feet. This prophecy was written 800 years before crucifixion was ever used as a means of punishment.

If we evolved from monkeys/apes, Why are there still monkeys & apes & humans? Why didn't they evolve?

Darwin admitted it seemed "absurd in the highest degree" that the eye could have been formed by natural selection "To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree."
~ Darwin, Charles R.

"English journalist Frank Morison had a tremendous drive to learn of Christ. The strangeness of the Resurrection story had captured his attention, and, influenced by skeptic thinkers at the turn of the century, he set out to prove that the story of Christ’s Resurrection was only a myth. His probings, however, led him to discover the validity of the biblical record in a moving, personal way. "

"Lee Strobel has written "A Case For Christ" and a "Case for Faith" I purchased both over the weekend. I have finished the first 100 pages of the former and feel it defintely gives CS Lewis a run for his money. In actuality both these men have my admiration. Two athiests who set out to disprove Christianity and instead... came to know Christ."
