Meet the Creator
Given the considerable scientific evidence for Creation and against Evolution, I would now like to show you how you can know the creator.
Identity of the Creator
Jesus Christ is the Creator.
Jesus is the word, that is God come in the flesh.
The problem of Evil
God created a perfect world good and free from evil.
Lucifer was the chief angel until he sinned. Simply put sin means evil. He became lifted up with pride and wanted to be God. Since the job was not available, he rebelled against God. There by evil entered into God's creation. Lucifer; now known as Satan; drew 1/3 of the angels into his rebellion.
Now Satan and his followers were created perfect by God, but like us they were created with a free will. You see God did not want a bunch of robots, so He gave His creations a free will. They had the ability to choose between good and evil and they chose evil. God knew that they would choose evil, but by definition having free will means that given a choice between good and evil, some will choose evil.
Once evil entered God's creation He could not just let it run out of control. It would spread like a cancer eventually bringing all of creation to misery and destruction. So God needs to judge evil and remove it from creation, but he can not do it in a tyrannical or arbitrary way. God's solution was to let evil play it self out in a limited manner, so that all of creation can see why evil needs to be dealt with. He will then someday judge it once and for all. Those who choose evil are saying that they do not want to be with God, so some day He is going to give them what they want. He will send them to a place with out him, that place is known as Hell.
The Bible describes hell as a place of eternal separation from God, so the conditions there seem to be a natural result of God removing his presence. It is not God's fault if in giving those who reject him what they want, if it is not what they expect. The fire of Hell is real but that is reality with out God.
The Fall of Man.
God created man sinless, but man fell by sinning and so evil and death entered the world.
At first glance this seems like excessive punishment for such an apparently small thing, but there was more to the act than just eating the fruit.
In eating the fruit Man disobeyed God, as much as he could at the time. You see there was so little opportunity to disobey God in the Garden of Eden. God was giving man a choice, and making it as easy as possible. It was a strait forward as it could get: eat or don't eat the fruit from one tree out of probably thousands.
When Adam and Eve ate that fruit they were not only disobeying God but calling him a liar as well. Through a snake Satan told Eve that she would not die if they ate that fruit. Adam and Eve believed Satan rather than God. They thereby brought man kind in to Satan's rebellion
The final part of Satan's pitch is evident in the name of the tree itself. The desire to know both good and evil is clearly part of the fall. Man knew only good in the Garden of Eden, so when Adam and Eve eat the fruit they decided that they wanted to know evil as well, and God is letting us experience it.
God could have made Man incapable of making the wrong choice, or he could have not given Man the opportunity to choose. However God does not want robots nor does he want to force Man to be with him, so he provided a choice. Adam and Eve made the wrong choice.
So all of us have sinned. That is we all have a tendency to do evil.
The problem is that God can not allow even the smallest amount of evil in heaven. It would not be true paradise other wise.
So how can you meet Christ?
Jesus Christ paid for our sin by his death on the cross. He then sealed our redemption by his resurrection from the dead. The empty tomb; where he was buried and rose from the dead; stands as evidence of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
God really wants us with him in heaven, but He will not force himself on us. He respects our free will by giving us a choice.
If we will repent of or evil ways ( sin ) and ask him to save us, he will save us from our sin. If not, we reject God's plan for salvation and are saying that we dont want to be with him. So God gives us what we want. We end up in that place with out him, known as Hell.
I urge you to take the time and accept Gods plan of salvation now, while you can. Repent of your sin and ask God to save you from your sins.
