Why Believe?

Why Not Believe? Today, the cry is more often than not, Why should I believe? After two centuries of the Enlightenment, Higher Criticism, Darwinism and Humanism many people have come to the conclusion that they shouldn't believe in a God. Belief in a Creator or Supreme being goes against human intellect and is based solely on emotionalism and the need for weak humans to have a meaning for their lives. Scientists have shown us all that everything in our world can be explained by the laws of physics and nature.

However, the case may be that we are on firmer ground to ask the question, "Why not believe?" Everywhere we look in the world of nature we see order and design. The very laws of nature themselves point, not to a world of chance, but much more likely to a world that was designed and put together by someone with great intelligence. Many scientists say that the world all began in a large explosion, a big bang. The question begs itself however: Where did the power which caused the big bang come from and where did the material that went bang originate?

In the end it does come down to a matter of faith. Either you believe that everything in our universe came about by chance or you believe that there is a Creator who has planned the whole thing out, from beginning to end. One of the world's greatest scientist has said, "My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior Spirit who reveals Himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction in the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God".(Albert Einstein) If Einstein thought there was a creator, is it so unreasonable for the rest of us to believe in one as well?

On this website we want to give you as much evidence as we can for the existence of a Supreme being. We want to explain to you and show you that He has not only made us but that He has contacted us and is interested in our lives; in how we live and what we do.
