How To Get To Heaven

Why Does God Exist

February 13, 2012 By: alanpg Category: Existence

You need to understand what life is all about and proceed to do so with a sense of urgency because, “This life will pass as though it never happened.” Approximately 93 Billion people have lived and died and it must have seemed to them life was so short. You may have 100 years left or maybe just today. Come to grips about your life and the purpose of life. Get on the right road today and understanding that God exists is a good start.

It Is All About You

Why Does God Exist?
Why Not Big Bang?
Why Not Organic Evolution?
What Is Life All About?

The question of God’s existence EXISTS because there is much fear God DOES exist. The deeper fear is that God is the God of the bible and He means what He has said!

I would suggest that our existence, the existence of anything is not a matter that can be explained scientifically. This page will provide WHY humankind cannot explain the “HOW OF CREATION.” Science has unfortunately acted with certain prejudices and consequently brought confusion – very unscientific. Every person with the RIGHT ATTITUDE can come to knowledge of the truth and only God could devise such a system. God’s way allows Him to determine who is fit for Heaven and there is no prejudice in relation to intelligence. However, it is harder for some due to their attitudes and/or their love of this life, which distracts them from ever seeking the truth. It is the attitude or maybe more accurately the character of men and women being tested not their intelligence, their education.

First, Before We Answer, “Why Does God Exist” Let Us Review Attitudes That Will Keep God Out Of Our Lives and Consequently Accepting The “Weak” Arguments for “Why He Does Not Exist”

Determining if God exists is not as difficult as overcoming the prejudice against God. It is the propaganda that people need to overcome in addition to some attitudes that are often grown out of the propaganda. The battle for truth may include differing with people who you respect, discounting popular scientific doctrines, overcoming the prejudicial reporting in the mass media and almost certainly sorting out the confusion religion has brought to this subject. The attitudes mentioned below are typically behind the problems associated with individuals, science, mass media and religion. Today, it is not unusual for people to believe they are enlightened in their belief God does not exist. This should not be surprising in view of all the propaganda praising the wisdom of denying God. People have reasonable REASONS for denying the existence of God and religion is one of the most significant – this will be discussed on this page, but is also a topic throughout Heaven Coach.” The reasonableness of something is not an excuse and certainly not in the case of denying God’s existence. There is nothing more important in life than realizing God exists and then pursuing the will of God. In addition, many people who believe in God are ULTIMATELY no better off than those who do not believe. However, believing in God is a good and necessary beginning, but success in life will require considerably more.

You do not have to be a “rocket scientist” as they say to understand – your existence. Science in this area, where there is no evidence and no definitive testing seems to draw conclusions beginning with the desired outcome in mind. One might suspect if God did not make the “how” of creation available in humankind’s makeup that those trying to explain our existence would develop weak, incredible, silly, perhaps even allow conclusions that were in opposition to known laws, and create explanations of incredible complexity and many assumptions. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE SEE, and rationalized by the size and time arguments. God does not require a PhD in Astrophysics to believe He exists. The basic issue for humankind should not be “HOW” did existence occur but “WHY and specifically for what purpose.” WHY does “All THIS, All We Observe” including intelligent life exist? If science could admit to intelligence in creation that might lead them to be much less interested in “HOW.” The video below summarizes at a high level a few thoughts about the mess, the confusion surrounding the issue of God’s existence. The purpose of this page is NOT ABOUT BEING RIGHT, but about thinking clearly in this matter FOR YOURSELF.

This website emphasizes understanding God, His Purpose, His Plan and in so doing it is very easy to see God in creation and know God is the God of the bible. The quality of your living existence is God’s way of testing you and indeed your attitude will play a big part in your eternal outcome. The attitude you need is really the opposite of the ones indicated below and includes humility, an open mind, a love of the truth, and a forgiving and unselfish spirit, among others.

Keeping You From A Successful Life

Here are three different attitudes that will destroy your chances for heaven:
The Wisdom of the Wise

1 Corinthians 1:19

19 For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”

The wisdom of the wise is referring to people who place their trust in their own wisdom. There is wisdom coming from God and in the case of God’s existence, it is for one thing displayed in what we observe around us. It is also seen in what God delivered in His word, but these counsels are ignored by the wisdom of the wise. Selecting your wisdom over God’s is precisely what man has done in rejecting the existence of God.

Earthly Wealth

Mark 10:25

25 “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

Jesus also refers to a young rich man who refuses to follow Him after he tells him to leave all His wealth behind.

Matthew 19.20-22

20 The young man said to Him, “All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?”
21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”
22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
Jesus is not short on pointing out the “downside” value of the things we possess or want to possess in relation to heaven.

The process God has in mind for you to be successful involves associating your “heart interest” with the long term, that is heaven.

Matthew 6.19-21

19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;
20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

God is indicating that for many earthly possessions are more important than the kingdom of God.
God clarifies this even further when He indicates it is not the wealth itself, but the LOVE of riches that is the root of evil.

1 Timothy 6:10

10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil

Money (love of) is the root problem for so many people. It often looks like greed and in addition to being self destructive many others can be damaged.

All these attitudes can be thought of as distractions. They become your true interests or we might say, “WHERE YOUR HEART IS” and almost universally will keep you from the truth you need. The actions you take, the distractions you allow are exactly what God planned to reveal your true attitude, the real you and consequently YOUR performance in the life-test. YOUR life is filled with challenges, distractions and ultimately you will make a decision to seek, find, and obey the truth or you will NOT! Concerning this page, you do not want to be caught up in the distraction called, “God Does Not Exist!” You need to move away from such an idea because there is still a long, challenging road to heaven beyond your recognition of God’s existence.

Proud Persons

Proverbs 11:2

2 When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom.

Proverbs 16:18

18 Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.

1 John 2:16

16 For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world.

James 4:6

6 …… “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”

Just like the Love of God, the Love of Truth and the Love of Others are the cornerstones of a great and acceptable attitude. Pride is the harbinger, the characteristic of destruction and opposition to God. In discussing a subject like God’s existence, in the background of the conversation is frequently pride. The pride can be deeply veiled, hiding as it were the truth from ourselves. We like what we hear in opposition to God and readily accept the wisdom of other men or women. Together, we all bask in the pride of OUR knowledge.

So Much Deception
Do Not Think You Are Immune

The number of people that are misled into believing God does not exist and/or if He does that He is not the God of the bible is enormous. God’s way is such that being misled is NO EXCUSE, but those that love the truth can overcome the deceit. It should not be a surprise that people are fooled and quite often easily fooled. The graphic below provides different ways people are commonly fooled and at times it is malicious and sometimes prejudiced or careless. The result is that people suffer the consequences. In the case of denying God and God as the God of the bible, the most serious consequences occur in the next life.

The point is people are routinely fooled and accept the deceit. The reason may be fear, it may be money, it may be to “look good” or perhaps just to follow the crowd. Although there are innocent victims among those who are fooled, there are also many who see the opportunity for personal gain and they become easy prey to less than reasonable ideologies.

Being Fooled

People are impressed by authority, by power, by the supposed ability of others to help their situation and that makes the deceit easy to accept. Hitler was almost a god to the Germans of his time. Of course, Hitler was a paranoid, sociopath and mass murderer. How did he garner such trust and admiration? He hid his character by demonizing others (primarily Jews) and building up Germans as a superior race. Bernie Madoff was sought after for his supposedly “best-in-class” way of returning a profit to his investors and people felt safe. Of course, it was all a scam. We believe the doctors, the FDA when it comes to the medicines they eventually approve. Here is a little “medical” story and relatively innocent compared to the malicious, murderous example of Hitler and the selfish, greedy and malicious deceit of Madoff.

It was the kind of study that made doctors around the world sit up and take notice: Two popular high-blood-pressure drugs were found to be much better in combination than either alone. “There was a ‘wow’ reaction,” recalls Franz Messerli, a New York doctor who, like many others, changed his prescription habits after the 2003 report. Unfortunately, it was not true. Six and a half years later, the prestigious medical journal the Lancet retracted the paper, citing “serious concerns” about the findings. The damage was done. Doctors by then had given the drug combination to well over 100,000 patients.

Most of the world’s deceit manages to survive in RELIGION as well as in POLITICS. SCIENCE frequently acts unscientific and it is usually more prejudicial and careless than malicious. The number of people who are fooled by science is a huge number. This is so devastating because our children are misled to believe in unproven theories that will never be proven, which also negatively influence their lives. So many scientists have admitted they do not really know why anything exists, but quickly say the “Big Bang” is our best theory. I usually say, you mean the best theory that avoids the alternative of God as creator. There is such prejudice against God’s existence that “science” will support something they know is very likely NOT TRUE and rather absurd as some scientists have publicly admitted (see below). In no sense is there fairness or ethical behavior in such a philosophy. Honesty is rightfully honored, and from science that would look like, “We Really Do Not Know Why Anything Exists.” That would be refreshing and honest!

Pride, Bias, Prejudice Are Exposed

One of the great mysteries of life is how anyone can be so devoted to some idea, so convinced of its validity that they will lie UNTIL they have the evidence to prove their point. This has never been truer than in the case of the science of humankind’s existence. Few admit to their commitment to a doctrine that has compromised their integrity. However, here is one famed geneticist who was very blunt.
Professor Richard Lewontin, a geneticist, is certainly one of the world’s leaders in evolutionary biology. He wrote this very revealing comment. It illustrates the implicit philosophical bias against Genesis creation—regardless of whether or not the facts support it.

“We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism.
It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is an absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.”

This extreme bias against a creator is not untypical. The mass media and thousands of scientists share this bias. Schools accept the bias and young minds are misled. Although many, maybe the majority of scientists embrace the anti-God position, some have been amazed to learn about the extreme prejudice of their colleagues. Robert Jastrow is such a person and it sickened him. He thought science was firmly planted in facts and truth, but the deep prejudice he discovered against a creator drove him to write a book exposing the intolerance of many scientists.
Even Albert Einstein participated in the deception in opposition to his own analysis. In developing the theory of relativity, Einstein realized that the equations led to the conclusion that the universe had a beginning. He did not like the idea of a beginning, because he thought one would have to conclude that God created the universe. Therefore, he added a cosmological constant to the equation to attempt to get rid of the beginning. He said this was one of the worst mistakes of his life. You see, later on others came to the same conclusion in their work and this may be the reason for the regret. Einstein believed in God that is he held the belief in a creator and spoke of Him as God or the “cosmic intelligence” even suggesting He had some questions for God. Certainly, he did not believe in a personal God, as he could not reconcile the judging of humankind. Einstein never really understood God’s purpose and thus like so many, they reject a “personal God.” They never see God in the light of what He revealed about Himself in scripture. That is why the subtitle of the book, “What Is Life All About?” is “Coming to the Correct Understanding of God and His Purpose of Life.” Everything can change for you if you understand God.
Religion, is strangely the most significant source that turns people away from God. It is not religion associated with God, although that is what is claimed. A great deal of this website and another (Catholics Question) point out the problems with various religions that ultimately destroy the souls of men and women. I am talking about the destruction of souls who follow the doctrines of these groups. They typically believe in God. If that were not bad enough these groups frequently and many historically have acted in ways to sicken good people. There is an association with cruelty, wars, murder and immorality and thus people have come to believe religion is a joke. They are right and they are wrong. They are right in their observations of evil attached to certain organizations but they are wrong in believing these groups have anything to do with God. A large number of people who deny God exists, do so because of religion.

I could Not Possibly Be Mislead
For One Thing Many People Believe As I Do

Few people have any idea of the extent of the lies to support a godless society. You might notice that the United States of America was once proud of its association with God. It might be the constitution or “In God We Trust” but God was in the fabric of America. Furthermore, God filled the landscape of American lives and even the mass media would reference God, prayers on a regular basis. The religion was the God of the bible, the true God, our creator and the basis for America’s beginning. The mass media now aggressively supports the theories of big bang and organic evolution, and behind that is the desire to have a godless society free from any censorship. They want a society that is not bound by or contains regulations from God. The bias is often particularly strong against a society that would follow bible doctrines. The bias threatens truth loving people and their families everywhere. Mass media once meant reporting the news, but now means creating the news. This includes “spinning” real stories to their personal ideology and even selecting news stories favorable to their ideology while “burying” others.
No one likes to be fooled and even fewer are willing to admit they were fooled. Therefore, we have the ridiculous situation where people continue to promote a belief they previously publically supported, but now know is wrong or might be wrong. They do this in order to avoid “looking bad or looking silly.” As God has said, “pride comes before destruction” and the number of people who never enter the race for heaven grows. As I said, let us be positive, and let us get to heaven. You do not have to continue to be “puffed up” in the way you were fooled. It is your decision and God is looking for people who can overcome error and do the right thing. David, in the Old Testament was caught up in some terrible things, things that were very sinful in the eyes of God. Yet, God said of David that he was a man after God’s own heart. Simply because David faced up to what he had done, not blaming others but saying he was responsible. It is quite amazing that God is going to determine your eternity by your relationship with Him through His Son. That is, a relationship you will never realize if you deny God. Despite YOUR desire to be fair, God is not the god of Islam, or in some way “related” to Buddha or any other manufactured deity, but God is the God of the bible. God is not the God of “so-called Christians” who call on His name, but fail to do what He says. They have allowed themselves to be fooled as much as those who deny that God exists. Do not be fooled into believing God thinks like you or that God SHOULD think like you, because He does not and will not!

Creationist’s Need Focus

I am not a creationist, that is one who confronts the commonly accepted but errant doctrines of science in the area of creation. The confrontation is scientific, answering every point with a strong counterpoint. Creationists have generally done a good job. However, in their enthusiasm some carry the opposite prejudice of scientist’s. When this happens, there can be exaggeration and “speaking” without a strong foundation. Of course, this is the normal tactics of science in matters favored but unproven. Even worse, few “creationists” rightly divide the word of God and consequently are less than convincing. This page emphasizes you do not need science to determine if God exists. In fact, science (actually humankind) does not have the “tools” to answer questions about creation. God did not create humankind with that level of capability. In futility, these scientists become very inventive. Take the case of entropy, which is killer blow to the “matter created all things doctrines” i.e. Big Bang, and so on and thus must be answered. Science hurries off to redefine entropy or at least create a special case where their material/non-intelligent beginning can potentially occur. The intensity of the effort to solve this problem (or various other threats) with SOMETHING becomes a priority. The point is that scientific EMPHASIS IS NOT ON TRUTH, but on proving there is no God. People who are so motivated like Professor Richard Lewontin (above) are not good scientists. Actually, it does not matter if the new special theory of entropy is true, what matters is, “In The Beginning God.” The evidence for God’s existence is overwhelming in all we see and only intelligent creation makes any sense. The questions of why anything exists and why time exists cannot be answered in any other way. Honestly, the anti-God prejudice held by so many is more than the result of individual pride, but invariably includes distaste for religion/religious people. Many who CLAIM TO BELIEVE IN GOD also add to the confusion by incorrectly representing God. It is an extremely serious business to speak as though you speak for God. It scares me to death to speak of spiritual things and I am only comfortable when I stay close to the scriptures making sure EVERYTHING is consistent. That is, consistent with ALL scripture on a given subject and that it ALL fits together. You can do this by thinking in terms of God’s purpose and His plan; since only in that context does everything make sense.
Again, I am not a creationist because the case for God can be presented easily without disproving or questioning the endless theories coming from the world of science. The significant segment of the scientific community will always make it complicated and does not care if it is the truth or even if it makes sense. A harsh comment, but seen as true in their own statements and ridiculous doctrines. So, why waste your time – keep it simple because it is simple. There is indescribable design, there is no reason we should exist and no reason time exists – there is a creator! The purpose of life is related to the NEXT LIFE. Only the scriptures have a reasonable, easy to understand version of our existence. Only the bible has a reasonable, consistent explanation of our purpose from the first page to the last. On the other hand, the “science version” of creation is endlessly complicated and ever changing and few if any understand and/or agree at the elementary level and it becomes, “trust me or trust the great scientific minds.”

The Foolishness of:
Failing To See God In The Creation

In order to keep the hope of God’s NON-EXISTENCE alive, people accept anything that might seem supportive. Science is one of the crutches, but if you really stop to think: What do they really know? Science provides constantly changing theories and speculation, while always awaiting the next idea. I suggest awaiting the next set of ideas will be the never-ending course of science in the matter of, “why anything exists.” I will propose a very simple analysis and let you draw the conclusions. I already know that if you are committed to God “not existing” you will almost certainly not change. It will be the pride you have, that you deny you have, keeping you from the truth. Therefore, this little “story” is for those who love the truth more than what they already believe.

It Is The Story Of:
An Observer (YOU) And A Rock.

We need to answer the question of why ANYTHING exists, even the smallest elementary particle that is known to man. It might be an undiscovered building block of an atomic entity like for instance, what makes up a quark. Whatever we now know about atomic physics regarding smallest known “physical” entity; we ask, “Why does it exist?” If this is the material that “banged” where did it come from?
We will assume for our (initial) reasoning project that an entire small rock exists and an observer also exists, but has no physical characteristics. We will call the observer, “YOU.” We will define the rock as consisting of only the element iron.

The observer (YOU) sees the rock (somehow it just exists). There is nothing else, no atmosphere, no gravity, no light, but we will define the observer as able to see the rock. The observer watches the rock for a thousand years and not surprisingly, nothing changes. He continues to watch the rock for a million years and nothing changes. Now it is approaching 200 Billion years and the rock has not changed. This is not surprising since there are no forces acting on the rock, no oxygen, no atmosphere or any other element. Our piece of iron does not even rust.

Creation from a rock

Now, the picture below shows what people would have you believe came from this rock. Namely, the universe, then living things and then intelligent life all just “happened” from this rock. It is just too ridiculous, so they say it took billions of years. It does not matter how long is suggested, there is no reason to believe that the passing of incredibly large amounts of time resulted in all we now see. Scientists, who supposedly possess high intelligence, try to figure out how “EXISTING STUFF” like life works – for instance genetically. The best minds make many discoveries over many years and their understanding increases. Yet, some non-intelligent “primordial soup” created the things that top scientists are now trying to understand. Logically, this means the “primordial soup” was infinitely more intelligent than were the scientists. This would be a reasonable conclusion!
Here is one of the problems in a simplistic form. When science discovered that the universe was expanding by actually observing how fast everything was moving away from our observation, actually at increasingly greater velocities they could “count backwards.” So, by counting backwards they determined with a few assumptions when everything started. The answer was that the “beginning” was about 14 billion years ago. Thus, we have the start or so-named big bang and since it could not be God, it must have started from an unidentified primordial soup. It was the “soup that banged.” Although many times in the past, science tried to find ways around the laws of thermodynamics, now they just say of this “SOUP” that it possesses an incredibly compacted “black hole character.” Essentially this entity (soup) contains all the mass and energy of the universe. Then it explodes (or whatever) and we are on our way to non-intelligent creation. Again, science is drawing conclusions from what they observe, but tainted with a powerful prejudice towards a non-God result. Of course, from their observations there are many possible scenarios. They immediately select a non-intelligent scenario. God, as suggested has limited humankind in accordance with His purpose. Science, believing there is an explanation will never find one. God tells humankind that time does not bind Him in anyway. Humankind lives and is constrained in a time world, which in no way constrains God. This is very important since man could never understand our beginning if the creator created time. God who apparently exists in many more dimensions than humankind and I would suggest infinite dimensions (suggesting His ultimate capability) could create in ways totally inconceivable to humankind. Humankind as God indicates in scripture, although in the image of God is much lower. If God were to create a tree would He plant a seed or would He just have a mature tree come into existence. It seems from Genesis that God created all things as mature and so how old is the tree? He creates the universe, well how old is the universe? Science is looking for the building blocks, the “seed” and the process by which everything occurred. God is not limited in the way He needs to construct anything. God exists in dimensions beyond humankind’s ability to understand. As God says, the secret things belong to the Lord, our God. God is gracious in providing the purpose of creation because that is important, but not providing the”HOW” of creation since that is ultimately not important. The “How” is part of God’s perfect plan to achieve His purpose in that God wants humankind to see Him in what He created and in the message He delivered. Providing the true “HOW” to humankind would in some way lessen the faith part of God’s equation. I am drawing this last conclusion based on all I know from what God delivered – it is just “thus guesseth me.”

Where is the proof of the big bang? There is none, but something happened back there and whatever it was is named the big bang. Actually, the conclusion regarding the 14 Billion years may be incorrect or WHY there is this rapid expanding of the universe could easily be misunderstood. The observation seems reasonable, but we really know so very little in this area. The true bottom line is that IT DOES NOT MATTER. People will live and die and never know the scientific answer regarding why anything exists. On the other hand, for those who love the truth, you can reach a very high level of certainty regarding God’s existence and that God is the God of the bible. Living right and dying having lived right has great value and is the only thing that really matters in your short lifetime.

Creation from a rock

Now, here is the bad news for those who want to believe such things. There is no rock or any physical matter and in fact, there is no reason for time to exist. There is no primordial soup – why should there be? Well, it exists in the mind of science because it is needed to create the possibility of a non-intelligent beginning.

Creation from nothing
Therefore, scientists trying to avoid the obvious become very “unscientific” and try to find an alternative to all the design that they observe. “Very unscientific” means they BEGIN WITH THE CONCLUSION (really their prejudice) that there is no God and then try to prove it. What Is The Truth? There is design everywhere, in everything and that requires a designer. There needs to be something to begin the existence of everything. Indeed, there is something as it says in the first verse of the bible, “In the Beginning God.”

In the beginning God

Science knows that all things are winding down, not improving. It is the Second law of thermodynamics. God put everything in place in the beginning and everything has been winding down since “the beginning.” This is feasible and what we observe. People, living things grow older and eventually die. Mutations always downgrade the organism in which they occur.
Hubert Mueller, the Nobel prize winning geneticist has said, “For all intent and purposes 100% of all genetic mutations are degenerate.” That is, all mutations of their very nature are destructive agents damaging the organisms where thy occur. Yet, genetic mutations that are built into nature can result in positive change allowing a given species to address certain environmental effects within certain limits. This indicates incredible design built into living things and thus God. It in no way suggests the gross changes claimed BETWEEN SPECIES could occur. This, of course is part of the evolutionary story that brings the first life from a single cell to develop different species and eventually to humankind.
Science has proposed that everything works the opposite of entropy (Second Law of Thermodynamics) and our observations. They claim things evolved becoming better and better and eventually “physical material” becomes alive. Finally, living things become intelligent (men and women), and that intelligence evolved from non-intelligent life. It is preposterous how terminology like “natural selection” explains how “naturally” everything is getting better by “non-intelligent” selection. Oh, but it took billions of years! Why would everything always get better? There is no reason. There is as mentioned some good science indicating why it would go the opposite direction as mutations degrade the organism when they occur.
There are literally thousands of scientists and engineers who understand the Second Law of Thermodynamics and the implication on our beginnings. Here is one example, well stated:

Gordon Van Wylen, Chairman of the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan commented that, “The question that arises is how the universe got into the state of reduced entropy in the first place, since all natural processes known to us tend to increase entropy?” (Gordon Van Wylen and Richard Edwin Sonntag, Fundamentals of Classical Thermodynamics, 1973). He concludes by saying, “The author has found that the second law [of thermodynamics] tends to increase conviction that there is a Creator ….”

The Pride of Science

The pride of science is that “science” can explain everything, but that would be impossible if within the creation God did not provide them the tools. God does not live in a time world, but how can man explain that? God creates things by thinking or saying “things” into existence, but how can man understand that? God has limited humankind’s ability to understand many things because God’s purpose was not to determine man’s ability to discover how things were created, but to determine those who were worthy to share eternity with Him.
Men’s ideas of the universe and how it came into existence fall with a little understanding of God as the God of the bible. The creation by design, by God is a SPECIAL CAUSE and that would eliminate all the speculations of aliens, parallel universes, and the big bang. This is because the reasons for these things would no longer be valid, such as statistical reasons. Instead of billions of years and billions of galaxies, which statistically allow for the possibility of these things, it would simply be God bringing these things into existence in a single thought and for the purpose of His test of humankind. God in His single purpose set the stage for men and women by sharing with Him, “His image.” It is all about YOU, and not about the creation of the “supporting cast” namely the universe and other living things.

Footnote: So many people are so adamantly opposed to creation because of religion. That is, the religions and religious persons they observe. Admittedly, there are seriously disgusting aspects to the religions of the world. If you dig into Heaven Coach” and “What Is Life All About?” you will learn that the vast majority of those who claim a relationship with God are actually the TRUE ENEMIES of God. This is because God hates false teaching and knows the heart of every person and few are on a path to achieve heaven. God will be perfectly just and you do not have to concern yourself about the many careless people associated with religion. So, do not sacrifice your eternity for them, but instead find, obey and live the truth.

Everything is running down not being wound up. The sun has a finite life, but it had a beginning. Every person is aging and will eventually die. There are many more diseases then there were thousands of years ago. One might say we are living longer today because of medicine and that is true. Even some of the diseases of old have been tamed or managed. However, there are always new “disease strains” and it is a continual battle. Man has interfered with the course of events in both positive and negative ways. Positively with medicines, cures and negatively in lifestyles such as drugs for pleasure but not health. Sexual transmission of disease is another negative way that humankind has selected to shorten life. Let us look at what good medicine has done in extending life. Unlike all the things that are running down, humankind (intelligence) causes a blip and some things do not wind down as fast as in the past. Every person will still die but some will have their lives continue longer. That is not consistent with the continual deterioration of, for instance the sun. Why is this? There has been no intelligent interference with the sun. God created man as an intelligent being and thus man’s inventiveness has resulted in temporary change in that which would wear down more quickly or as mentioned can cause destruction to occur earlier. In the beginning, God (intelligence) created all things and since then they have been wearing down. It is amazing how science has non-intelligent material changing things for the better. Some material “bangs” and creates everything without intelligence. Eventually, after a very long time through an unintelligent process, life begins. Millions of year’s pass and life becomes intelligent life. In man’s view of the world, things are improving, not winding down!

Pause: To Define The Theory of Organic Evolution

It is unfortunate that the word “evolution” has been accepted to mean that all living things on earth have come from one “primitive ancestor.” This is the correct meaning for “The Theory of Organic Evolution.” Evolution, however, simply means CHANGE and within a given species there are such changes and demonstrated in nature and in the lab. Such change (evolution) may be the result of the environment and other outside influences. Those influences have been “designed into” living things. So when EVOLUTION is demonstrated in living things in response to the environment, then the next step is to teach that new species come into existence by evolution. The difference being it takes billions of years for such a transformation. Ultimately this process results in intelligent beings – humankind. The least such teachers could do would be to get the terminology right. This change to new species is monumentally different than the EVOLUTION that is real and proven. The differentiating name is “The Theory Of Organic Evolution.” That theory is unproven and in fact not true. The current state of knowledge is deplorable and when I ask an average person about evolution they define it as the process of “humankind evolving from apes.” If I go further and question the theory, I am usually told, “evolution is a proven fact, everybody knows that.”

We have the theory of organic evolution telling us about “natural selection” as the way things improve, but the real WORD is “unintelligent selection.” Natural is just a word to avoid saying God or intelligence. It is ridiculous and represents the way that desperate men and women carelessly find ways to believe (to their own doom) that there is some answer other than God. Even Darwin, who realized correctly that a living species changes (evolves) over time and with environmental influences never proved that man was evolved from lower forms. Look at what Darwin said towards the end of his life.

Darwin No To Evolution

The other fundamental law of Physics / Thermodynamics is the First Law of Thermodynamics, which disallows the creation or destruction of matter and energy. It works and much of the technology we experience in life is the result of the application of First Law of Thermodynamics principles. Not to fear, “bad science”, which dominates our educational systems will find a way around another basic law. A law that we know correctly defines all we see. Once again, there is one answer, namely a creator.
In reality, there is no observer; there is no rock, there is nothing. Yet, in a sense, there is an observer because TODAY you can observe there is design, a designer and thus there is God. The God of the bible points to His creation in the verses below, but not in a scientific way, but as a “matter of fact.” It would seem God was indicating His power to humankind and pointing to the obviousness of Himself as Creator. There is a strong tone of differentiation between God the Creator and those created, although there is a similarity because intelligent life is created in the image of God.

Isaiah 55:8,9

8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

There is nothing more foolish than to reject the creator and yet God allows it during a person’s lifetime. The verses below provide God’s matter of fact way of revealing Himself as Creator.

Psalms 19:1

1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.

Job 26:7

7 He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing.

This is one of hundreds of fascinating statements in relation to God being the God of the bible and if I were a creationist, I would be thrilled they exist. In this case, traveling North out from the earth one travels out of our galactic system. Traveling South takes one to the equatorial axes of the galaxy. Traveling East or West sends one along the plane of our galaxy towards Billions of stars that make up our galaxy. Traveling to the North takes us on an eternal journey to nowhere. More precisely, there are a few stars, but then only billions of light years of empty space. How could Job possibly know these things and why would he care during the period he lived. There is wisdom in seeing God in creation and in His word.

Romans 1.20-25

20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,
21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Verse 20 above is very powerful, in that GOD says He can clearly be seen in His creation by His invisible attributes, by the things that are made. It would seem there is no excuse for failing to understand God exists. One group likely to fail in this matter would be those mentioned above as possessing the “wisdom of the wise” characteristic.

Colossians 1:16

16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.

Proverbs 8:23

23 I have been established from everlasting, From the beginning, before there was ever an earth.

John 1:3

3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

God is the God of the bible and apparently, this is the worst of fears held by so many people. They gladly line-up as atheists, agnostics and many who are scientists, mass media people, teachers and support such things as “Big Bang” and the Theory of Organic evolution. This may be the most foolish of all the actions taken by human beings because they work so hard to ASSURE their own destruction. Can you imagine eternity lost and realizing you fought so diligently against your own success? Then to realize your war with God was really all about your pride and selfishness.

Now, LET US BE POSITIVE, let’s achieve heaven and that is the purpose of “Heaven Coach.” Begin to understand God as He has revealed himself. It will be your choice, YOUR eternity and one way or another YOUR decisions will determine YOUR eternal fate.

As we study scripture, you can see how God reveals a great deal about His creation. Genesis chapter one unlike any other religion begins with a feasible and correct to this day explanation for the existence of all things. Of course, we have the naysayers, who begin to question everything in Chapter one of Genesis. There is one simple answer to all their questions and that is, “God provided man something understandable.” Is it understandable that God limited humankind’s ability compared to His own? He describes His creation in terms of something beyond humankind’s ability to comprehend, by describing creating things by saying them. God possesses unfathomable creative power even creates time (“In The Beginning”). God can do anything and science argues against God, that is arguing against the One who creates by saying it. Mankind was not created with the ability to know the “how of creation” but in the first three chapters of Genesis you can uncover a great deal about God’s purpose. You can see how God in chapter three of Genesis is indicating His plan for humankind going forward after sin entered the world. It is exactly what did happen over approximately the next two thousand years, culminating in Jesus death, burial and resurrection.
We know God has power beyond our wildest imagination and created all the laws for His creation in terms of the mathematical and scientific concepts many of which humankind has discovered and/or will possibly discover. This mathematical order is clearly not the product of unintelligence. Yet, God as mentioned limited humankind’s ability to fully understand God’s creative power such as creating everything by “saying it” or by creating time. It would seem impossible to know why God limited humankind but with all God has revealed about his purpose and plan it would be reasonable to assume the limiting correlates to His purpose and plan. On the other hand God has held nothing back from humankind including His love and the means to achieve heaven.

Of course, science (who should know better) wants you to believe all the mathematical and scientific perfection of the universe and of life, and of intelligent life was the result of a “dumb explosion.” God exists everywhere including in His created environment of space-time where humankind also exists. This is the physical-time world, but God is Spirit and unlike man who lives in this 4-dimensional world, God can exist in infinite dimensions. It is convenient and descriptive to think of God as also separate from our space-time continuum because with God there are no limitations. In the book, “What Is Life All About?” I use the idea of God viewing all of time like we see a book – He sees the beginning and the end and everything in between.

Big Bang – Something to Feed The Hope For “No God”
Also Is Something That Ultimately Makes Life Meaningless

I have heard people say, what is the difference between God and the “Big Bang Theory” since both require faith. It is a reasonable question in that context and the answer is:
1) One assumes intelligence brought us to the current state, the other assumes we are the product of non-intelligence.
2) One was definitely invented by humankind and the other is a logically purposed creation and described by the creator in the word He has delivered to humankind.
3) One ends in hopelessness and the other holds the promise of a wonderful eternal life – for some.
4) One is ridiculous and the other is logical and becomes convincing for those who love the truth and actually for any reasonable person since “unimaginable” intelligence is obvious.
5) Big Bang will continue to change and the concept name and idea will pass away for something new. The evidence for God will remain the same and there will be no new names or theories.
6) There will never be any definitive proof for “Big Bang.” The existence of God as the God of the bible is something every person can know with certainty. God’s delivered word is powerful and faith in God originates from God’s word. As faith increases more is “sight” and there is great assurance. Study, diligent growth in the knowledge of God allows one to see how everything God has done fits perfectly together, consistent with His purpose. You will be certain of God’s existence and that God is the God of the bible.

More On The Beginning

Good science has come to realize there was a beginning, but that was a gradual process of discovery and acceptance. Before that, the “scientific community” was claiming everything always existed. Of course, thousands of years before, the first verse of the bible read, “In the Beginning God.” A beginning is something that the scriptures indicate from the very first verse. You will not find the religious books of any other religion defining God, origins, and a consistent plan from page one to the last page as the bible so perfectly does. The bible, written over a period of about 1545 years and includes approximately 40 different authors. The message is consistent in purpose throughout all its authors. The bible consists of 66 books (39 OT/27 NT), written as mentioned by 40 people, on three continents, in three languages, over ABOUT a 1545 year period from ABOUT 1450 BC until ABOUT 95 AD or 1545 years. There is one message from Genesis to Revelation and the character, purpose and consistency of that message provides the evidence God intended for humankind.

Creationist’s Ought to Know Better

Those who study Creation from the point of view of the bible can see how God is accurate in every way regarding our existence. They know that although the bible is not a book of science that it is accurate in the things it reveals. They also know the secret things belong to God.

Deuteronomy 29:29

29 “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.

Dealing With The Secret Things of God

God, as mentioned has placed humankind in a world where they are bound in time and space. That is, in a world where time exists and each person is “trapped” in a physical body in a physical universe. It was done so perfectly that man cannot understand existence outside of time and space. Humankind can speculate about this, but it is not real to them. In fact science explains existence in terms of time and needs vast amounts of time to make the unlikely appear possible. Science also requires vast amounts of space and matter to explain the statistical likelihood of all the right ingredients existing someplace for life to begin and flourish. Of course, one can observe the vastness of our universe, but this has become an opportunity for wild speculation by science. Some of our supposedly best scientists now teach the size of the universe leads us to conclude there are parallel universes.
In God’s realm, time and physical things do not exist unless of course, He decides to create them as He did for His test of mankind. So how does God explain creation to Humankind with their limited abilities, while still achieving His purpose for humankind? In addition, God cannot lie or deceive so the information He passes to humankind must be correct but again within the framework of humankind’s limitations. God can achieve all that is needed quite easily, but humankind will never fully, deeply understand because of their limitations. They can understand what is important, that is, God exists and that God is the God of the bible. One of the most significant pieces of information given to humankind is that time places no limits on God, and time was created for humankind. God essentially does not discuss time in creation other than to provide humankind with a separation of events in the creation using a day. There must be a dozen different theories regarding the meaning of the day of Genesis, such as the gap theory, the day-age theory to mention a couple. I am certain that none of them are correct because God did not reveal this detail and is consistent in not discussing time in relation to creation. This definitely falls into the secret things belong to the Lord, our God. I suspect God’s veiling aspects of creation has something to do with keeping HIS purpose in the forefront of all things. Faith being a part of that purpose as is finding, obeying and living the truth. It is not the truth about the “how” of creation, but the truth needed to have a successful life culminating in heaven. Science will never discover the answer to “how” and God’s people will not care because it is not the reason for their existence. What is the best outcome of knowing the “how” of creation? What is the best outcome of knowing God, knowing His purpose? In the former there is nothing to be gained, but perhaps a lifetime searching for God or trying to scientifically prove there is a possible alternative to God. This amounts to a wasted life, wasting the precious time you could have spent serving God culminating in heaven. The latter addresses your eternity and has infinite, wondrous value. There is quite a difference in the eyes of God in the attitudes of those who indeed love truth and those who seek a certain preconceived end result.

Creationists – Understand What You Believe

Here is the dilemma, creationist’s should understand that God’s word has been delivered exactly as God willed and thus in all matters, it is accurate. Certainly, the means for man’s salvation is clearly presented and thus it is easy to differentiate truth from error. For some strange reason, God’s plan for reconciliation escapes the majority of people who call themselves Christian. As a creationist, you know Carl Sagan was an agnostic who believed and taught many things that pointed away from God. Do you know that Martin Luther also concluded many things in relation to salvation that are as damaging to the souls of people as Carl Sagan. Humankind has an infatuation with personalities, famous people more so than the things God has delivered. Heaven Coach teaches “Believe No One.” I know countless people who stand by science believing big bang and the theory of organic evolution but certainly do not understand either – their faith is in science. The only thing these beliefs offer is some peace of mind in your lifestyle during your lifetime. In the most basic of all things, science does not even offer a reasonable explanation for why anything exists. The scriptures offer an intelligent solution – namely intelligence in creation and a purpose for your existence and much, much more for the truth seeker. I am not a creationist because there is no need to be – there is a need to seek, find, and obey the truth.

One last thought for creationists, I realize you would like to change the course of ungodliness. You would like to support the bible answer for creation by disproving the many claims of “big bang” and “the theory of organic evolution.” In doing this, you could potentially change the course of education. Indeed, young, impressionable minds can be strongly affected by their teachers. Actually, YOU ALREADY HAVE ACCOMPLISHED YOUR PART in exposing the scientific weakness of the “no-God” position. However, those so opposed to God as creator are not going to change. The one way to bring any person to truth is by the gospel, by understanding God. Your efforts to preach the word, in season and out of season will bear what fruit is possible. We see Paul and others shaking the dust from their feet and moving on when the message was not accepted.

Acts 13.49-52

49 And the word of the Lord was being spread throughout all the region.
50 But the Jews stirred up the devout and prominent women and the chief men of the city, raised up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them from their region.
51 But they shook off the dust from their feet against them, and came to Iconium.
52 And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.

Mark 6:11

11 “And whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!”

As Creationists, you need to focus on the truth of the Gospel; Do YOU have it right? Frankly, most of the creationist’s DO NOT have it right, just as those caught up in prophecy are invariably wrong and missing the mark on what is really important! God will not reward you for your scientific aggressiveness on His behalf, but will reward you because you won the battle with sin, by obeying and living the gospel.

You see the fields are white with opportunities and now whiter than ever (seven billion people on earth and hundreds of false religions), so focus on truth and living in a way that pleases God. Most “Christians so-called” will not like Heaven Coach any more than the atheists and/or agnostics. Why? Simply because in the most fundamental way, they have also been deceived. Persons deceived can be very proud, closed minded and just as closed minded as the scientists who defend their no-God teachings. As always, do not believe me, but Understand What You Believe!

Why You Should Not Trust Science

Scientist’s KNOW they DO NOT KNOW how “existence” occurred. They know there is no real evidence for the theory of organic evolution. Actually, they know, “In The Beginning God” answers all the problems science has with existence. Science in its attempt to have an alternative to God had to give up the idea of intelligence participating in the process. Intelligence is the only answer and they had to reject that possibility – quite a “pickle” they have created for themselves. In areas where science cannot test theories, they are just guessing, hoping. One positive thing science could do, would be to say they really do not know why anything exists, but evidence points to intelligence.
God is the creator and is the God of the bible. God tells us about our beginnings and does so authoritatively. The bible puts fear into the hearts of many people because it might be true. “Living the bible” certainly limits humankind, but each person decides how they will live – you are free to do as you please. It is God’s plan, a test for you and within your lifetime, your actions determine your fate. Those who succeed in life WILL LIMIT THEMSELVES IN LIFE by following God’s will and not their own.

Leaders of the anti-God science movement mislead children with their prejudice, teaching their best speculations as though they were factual. Now, would you trust such people, such organizations? You might trust them if you have the same prejudices.
You very likely realize science will never agree and the theories will keep coming and during that process YOU WILL DIE. You can understand God, His existence, His purpose and His plan RIGHT NOW.

Here Are Some Reasons
People Do Not Believe In God

There are so many reasons why people do not believe in God and always related to confusion brought by humankind. God, as He indicates is not a God of confusion.

1. Thinking what you observe as religion in the world in some way is connected with God.

2. People believing the crusades were fought between Muslims and Christians. This is just an example or symptom of generally accepted beliefs, where God is wrongly accused or blamed. Throughout the entire history of humankind, there has been confusion about God. A modern everyday example is blaming God for the suffering and/or death of a loved one.

3. When God is described as love, it does not “paint” a complete picture and thus can be very misleading. You should understand God more completely as He has revealed Himself. God is perfect in love and justice and can manage these two perfectly in determining the fate of each person. The love of God is all “tied up” in forgiving those who have a faithful/obedient relationship with His Son.

4. In an attempt to honor all religions, humankind goes too far and forgets there is One God and He abhors having false gods/religions before Him. Nonetheless, the Freedom of religion offered in the United States is WONDERFUL and would please God because therein people are free to choose.

5. Religion that comes from God is in no way political, or in any way involved in governing but has a singular mission related to souls. “Churches” which have involvement in matters of State are not in any way associated with God.

6. The overwhelming seriousness of our short life is NOT emphasized and people live for today or for the short term. Life is about eternity, the test is of short duration and then into a timeless, non-physical existence.

7. People are mesmerized by science and place their confidence in the men/women of science. They abdicate responsibility for this most important of all decisions to another person/persons/or organization.

8. “Science so-called” depicts mankind as evolving very slowly from lower forms of life and people actually accept this concept. At best, it is a circumstantial case containing huge gaps and a long string of unproven theories needed to support the conclusion.

9. An important element deterring belief in God is a worldwide mass media that rejects, ignores God and depicts those who believe in God as wild-eyed, illogical persons that may be dangerous. News, movies, television all participate in the deception. There is no conspiracy, but a widespread desire for a godless society.

10. Perhaps the single most damaging element promoting atheism, humanistic beliefs is religion and none is more damaging than those religions that call themselves Christian. There is a ton of evidence for this conclusion at “Heaven Coach” and “Catholic’s Question.”

11. The world is largely confused regarding spiritual matters to the point of giving-up on finding the truth, typically believing there is no truth and likely no God. Religion brings most of this confusion.

God’s explanation in Genesis of creation may be viewed as too simple, and very unscientific. We see the complexity of the universe, of living things and have been conditioned to believe only the greatest of scientific minds could understand. It is not unscientific because it is based on reasonable observations. However, what is missing is the fact that IT IS SIMPLE – when you understand God you understand God’s purpose and it has nothing to do with science. God’s purpose has to do with you! You are at the center of existence; you are the reason for the planets, the universe, for living things. These things simply represent the stage/props for God’s test.
Creation was exceedingly simple for God. He creates by saying or thinking things into existence and man will never understand the HOW of such power. Any man can understand there is a creator and it is clear that God expects this of humankind. God knows it is pride and selfishness that holds men and women back from this admission and this is exactly God’s plan for separating those for heaven from those who fail. The creation was simple compared to the intricacies of sorting good from evil, right from wrong, love from hate and doing that perfectly for every person. God controlled every aspect of creation, but humankind was the reason for all that God has done. God does not exercise control of humankind because life is a free-will test. The complexity of creation, life, intelligent life demonstrates the existence of God. God experiences sadness, disappointment as well as joy in the free-will actions of humankind. God knows every thought of every person, every intention and will make no mistakes in His judgment. God has told humankind the details of judgment in His word. Do not underestimate God by doubting His ability in any way. Many people find problems with God, doubt His fairness, question His methods and blame Him for just about everything. God can handle all your concerns no matter how great, difficult and impossible they seem to you – they are easy for God!

The Existence of God Should Be Easily Understood By Humankind

It is interesting how man struggles with the idea of God and yet we are like a god to many of non-intelligent living things beneath us. However, only in the sense of being created at a higher level. Those living creatures do not have an intellect and thus do not look for a greater power. Nonetheless there is a hierarchy. The real reason we are like God is because God created us in His image in the sense of God-like characteristics. This subject “Being Created In The Image Of God” is discussed throughout Heaven Coach and those key characteristics of being in God’s image are:
1) A unique personality – nobody quite like you
2) An intellect
3) A spiritual character currently “trapped” in a physical body – we are eternal

We come from intelligence and are intelligent enough to understand our origins with the help God provided us in His word. We exist; why is it so hard to imagine there is something much greater above us. God’s revelation to man is the “clincher” to every person who loves the truth.
The verses below (2 Peter 3.4-9) are quite powerful and teach many things. God reveals the meaning of time from His perspective versus the meaning of time to humankind, who live in that domain. In regard to the subject of the end of the world being described in these verses, there is a comprehensive page in heaven coach that explains that subject in an understandable way consistent with all scripture. To humankind, God may seem slack concerning His promise of Christ’s return, but God says you should understand that with God one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. Time locks humankind in its bounds just as does his/her body does so in a physical universe. There are no bounds on God unless He would specifically impose such bounds on Himself. There are bounds on scientific discovery in relation to understanding origins. It is reasonable to believe science will never understand HOW God creates by saying or thinking “things” into existence or how time exists. Nonetheless, in their foolishness and pride, they teach what they cannot prove and young minds are the frequent victims. Scientists or not, an honest man or women should have the courage to say, I do not know how or why we exist and in fact I do not know why anything exists.

2 Peter 3.4-9

4 “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”
5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water,
6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.
7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

So, Why Does God Exist?

The subject of this page and some other pages within Heaven Coach address this question. The short answer to, “Why Does God Exist?” is simply because no one has ever presented a reasonable alternative for ANYTHING existing, for TIME existing. The bible and only the bible presents a reasonable case for our existence, for why anything exists. Intelligence is clear in our existence and the bible presents the ultimate in intelligence. It does not take much thought to believe that such intelligence would want to communicate to His prime creation – the creation even in His own image. The scriptures were delivered to man for this very reason. When you consider that humankind is limited in the creation (cannot understand the HOW of existence), it is obvious this was part of God’s plan. God’s plan reveals the need to trust in the creator and that begins in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve. That theme of trust, often referred to as faith is consistent throughout the scriptures. Yet, it is clear that this trust would not be authentic if God overwhelmed man with evidence. There is as God says, “His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made” and in ADDITION, there is communication with humankind in the scriptures. This is what you have from the creator and now what will you do with it? These things provided by God answer, “Why Does God Exist?” YET NOT FOR EVERYONE, but just for those with the right attitude. Those with the correct attitude will believe in God, seek His will, obey God and live faithfully until death. Everything about the creator is perfect and nothing is as perfect as His plan to achieve His purpose.
The reason people deny the existence of God is due to the prejudice in the world against God. The prejudice exhibits itself in deceit. Science, mass media and religion all contribute significantly to destroy the souls of men and women. Many people want to align with the prejudice because it fits what they want to believe and how they want to live. In any case, you will be responsible for what you accept and how you live. There will absolutely be no one else to blame despite how good the indoctrination.

Jesus made this clear:

Matthew 15:14

14 “Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.”

Paul warned those he was working with of the dangers of false teaching.

Acts 20.29-31

29 For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.
30 Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.
31 Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.

In many other scriptures, God is telling humankind of the potential to be pulled away from the truth and it would seem these “savage wolves” would be powerful, effective in destroying many souls.
If you think there is some back door to heaven, you are wrong. If you think achieving heaven will be easy, you are wrong. We are not talking necessarily about physical difficulties, but much of the overcoming is as is suggested above, overcoming lies and deceit.
Again, life in any case is not easy and there will difficulties to overcome. It is clear from scripture that God wants the best and anyone with a good heart, the right attitude can achieve heaven. The best are not free from errors, problems or sin and often serious sin but sin can be covered by the blood of Christ. That was God’s plan revealed in Genesis 3.15 following sin entering the world. Success in life will take the right attitude, a humble attitude to follow Christ. It is God’s way, God’s test and you can be successful!

Acts 14.22

22 “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God.”

The reward is great. The suffering on your life journey is small and of limited duration compared to the pain of eternally losing the reward. In addition losing the one thing that matters you realize the opportunities to succeed were bountiful and thwarted very personally by yourself – your pride – your desires – your selfishness.

Revelation 21:7

7 “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.

Knowing God exists gets you on the right track but many are derailed and do not achieve heaven. Many people fight the good fight and overcome many of life’s difficulties. They succeed and obtain many of the things this world has to offer. However, if they do not fight the good and tougher fight to achieve heaven, what have they really accomplished? Indeed, God exists, but the world is interested in EVERYTHING ELSE except the only thing that really matters. Strangely, instead of embracing the gift of God, there is a persistent effort to even deny God’s existence.
