Is there a greater question? If the God revealed upon the pages of the Bible exists, and he does, then, all humankind is answerable to him! On the other hand, if the God of the Bible does not exist, then mankind is free to do their own will, follow their likes and dislikes, to commit every kind of evil the human mind can conceive. The result would be as Moses wrote of the people just before the great flood: “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Gen. 6:5). America has not reached this point yet, but we are on our way!
The above serves as evidence that our question must be answered! When the universe is considered, I have long stated that it is just too big for there not to be, God! Here is how one writer put it: “The universe was born with the Big Bang as an unimaginably hot, dense point. When the universe was just 10-34 of a second or so old — that is, a hundredth of a billionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second in age — it experienced an incredible burst of expansion known as inflation, in which space itself expanded faster than the speed of light. During this period, the universe doubled in size at least 90 times, going from subatomic-sized to golf-ball-sized almost instantaneously.” (Charles Q. Choi, June 17, 2017 – Our Expanding Universe: Age, History & Other Facts). It surprises me that writers are still, after all these years, referring to “the Big Bang,” as a simple question puts an end to it; the question: “What went BANG?” There was something before “the Big Bang!” Something must have existed before “the Big Bang,” but just what was it? Answer if you have understanding!
Here is one answer to the question, what existed before “the Big Bang?” Answer: “Approximately 4.5 billion years ago, gravity pulled a cloud of dust and gas together to form our solar system. While scientists aren’t certain of the exact nature of the process, …” (The writer’s name was lost in my search, frw). Did you notice the words, “a cloud of dust and gas?” Just where did and how did this “dust and gas” come from? The total of the efforts to explain the universe’s origin, is an effort to try and prove that the God of the Bible does not exist! Yet, all such efforts must begin with something, and the question remains: “Where did that something come from and how did it exit?” Man, in all his worldly wisdom has no answer to these two simple questions! One spokesman answered the question: How much did that which went Bang weigh; he responded, “About twenty-five pounds!” Which does not tell us where the “twenty-five pounds” came from!
Moses answered the overriding question, where did the universe come from, in these words, the opening statement of the Bible: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Gen. 1:1). Give thought to these words: “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God…” (Psa. 53:1). Now, read the words which followed: “Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.” Nothing has changed, the person who declares, “there is no God,” is subject to: “Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity!” Remove God, and mankind is free to his own iniquity; so “that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Friends, there is a continuing need to address the question: “Does God exist?” While doing so with scientific facts, not “a leap in the dark,” coupled with the Bible.
In Stephen Hawking’s final book, he wrote: “I think the universe was spontaneously created out of nothing, according to the laws of science, …” (Brief Answers to Big Questions, the under lining is his.). Think of this now, “according to the laws of science” he was trying to scientifically prove, that something came from nothing! How “scientific” is that? He also wrote in answer to the question, what happened before the Big Bang: “there was no time before the Big Bang.” Well, just what was there? According to him, time also started from nothing, but God said: “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night …” (Gen. 1:14). Friends, “day” and “night” is time! There is another good question, just where did “day” and “night” come from in the “Big Bang” guess?
God gives the best evidence of his own existence! “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork” (Psa. 19:1). The Hebrew word used for “declare,” expresses: “to score with a mark as a tally or record, that is, (by implication) to inscribe, and to enumerate” (Strong). God does exist!
