"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." - Genesis 1:1

IT WAS ALL BY CHANCE?

How do you think that life came about? Where did it all begin? How was it all put in motion? Some believe life evolved by chance; others believe all creation came from God. The fact is, both philosophies take a great deal of faith.

Imagine this: One of our soldiers in the Middle East sets off a landmine and out of the explosion comes a perfectly built 747, ready to fly him home to America. Would you believe that story? It would take a great deal of faith. And yet, it takes that much faith and more to believe that all of life evolved by chance, because all life is far more complex than a 747.

Theologian, author, and pastor, R.C. Sproul, calls chance, “the magic wand to make not only rabbits come out of the hat, but entire universes.” Simply put: Chance doesn’t stand a chance.

Look around you–the birth of a baby, the predictable seasons, the beauty of spring. Do you have enough faith to believe it happened by chance?

I don’t. I’m going to put my bet on God. He put it all in motion.
