Well, its really interesting to read some of the comments here! How come we are so ready to dismiss that God created the world?
None of us were there at the beginning,yet we seem so eager to have concluded that everything came about by any means other than acknowledging God did it. Why is that?
Lets look at things from another angle.
Having seen that The Bible and the existence of God has been all but banished from our schools (especially State), where does that leave us as a society today?
Can we honestly say that our society is healthier?
Sadly the rot has been going on for 3 or more generations.
Breakdown in society and Families is greater now.........
Indeed, not only has The Bible and acknowledgement of God been almost banished from opur schools, but certainly from the media, and most of those who carry any authority in society, including Teacher Training Colleges.
Some may conclude that The Bible is a restraining influence on life and thought. Well, may be it is, but in a good way...to keep us from harming ourselves and others.
However, it is also a very liberating book, as any serious reader of it would tell you.
And from one comment I saw, the person thought that morality is still possible without God.
That is true as far as conscience allows it, and of course conscience is put there by God.
Apart from God, there is no possibility of morality.
Who would set the standards....? Who has any right to administer whatever forms of morality were deemed to be suitable?
As soon as you apply man's rationale to our human condition, it falls down, and that is what is happening.
Far better to accept God's verdict and solution. Its the only safe way........ satisfying to us and honouring to God.
We leave God out of our thinking at our peril.
