    “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the Sun has risen, not only because I see it but because by it, I see everything else.”
    C.S. Lewis, ‘The Weight of Glory’

    Amen…thank you, Duane…

    There is no problem for anyone to believe, as long as you fill that vaccum in your life when God Almighty formed you in your mother’s womb with Jesus Christ. Anyone else or anything to fill that vaccum will have a difficult time believing.
    According to Romans 8:29, God chose me (those in Christ Jesus) before the foundation of this world. HE knew I would fill that vaccum in my life with Jesus Christ – been there for over 40 years and counting till the Rapture of the church

  4. Michael says:

    Actually, people have a difficult time believing because of abusive people and doctrines that have nothing to do with Jesus.

    We need to deal with the fact that many leave the faith because of the allegedly faithful…

    A beautiful post. Thank you!

    Just exactly why this website survives!
    The Church does not speak up as it should! Afraid? Dunno, but…
    If you know God, you’ll love Him, His reputation AND you will speak out to condemn abuse and apostasy…. or so it seems to me

    Love this!

    Yes I didn’t call on a pastor or a friend or an institution. I called upon the name of the LORD and he opened heaven and poured out the Spirit. That moment defined my life, still does.

    They can’t take my faith because they didn’t give it to me.

  9. Walking the same path with you. The simple faith in a profound savior.

    …the bizarre conspiracy theories….

    Some bizarre conspiracy theories I think are worth considering. The theory of creation as taught in the bible I think is one of them. Other bizarre conspiracies such as the virgin birth and the resurrection are even more beautiful and powerful and worth holding onto. Anyone with a sane mind must admit all of these miracles are bizarre.

    I still believe because I choose to.
    I want to believe in something beyond this all too short Earthly life.
    Not that I have contempt for this bodily life, but because I want more bodily life.
    A repaired genome.
    One that has no expiration date.
    I have no desire for streets paved with gold and jewel encrusted vistas.
    This Earth is my home and I like it just fine.

    Creation, as taught in the Bible, is quite believable. There is nothing there that teaches nothing existed prior to God’s preparation of earth for mans habitat. In fact an accurate translation says the earth became void! Then God chose it for us.
    I’ve been living as a born-again one for almost seventy years now and i look back over those years and see that God was/is there everyday. Not always seen by me at the time, but in retrospect, i see His faithful shepherding…. 😇
    Today? March 2021, i “feel” His soon return… Dunno, though, i know feelings are slippery things.. .
    God keep

    Em,. My understanding is that everything that exists that is NOT God, must be part of creation. If something always existed, it would have the qualities of God that only God has. In Genesis, when it talks about In the beginning, could be just life on earth, but I’m convinced it means creation of everything that exists apart from God. Nevertheless my theory of creation in the bible is not confined to the pages in Genesis. Are you presupposing something other than God existed before he created anything? Is there another God that I’m not aware of?

  16. Steve says:

    If creation is not ex nihilo then a difficult theological issue results: where did the pre-existent material come from? If we say that it was created, then many questions arise: Who created it? When? Why? Was God not able to create it? What is the relationship between this “creator” and the God of the Bible? If we say that the pre-existent material is eternal, then we are saying that a rival god exists who, like the God of the Bible, is eternal and uncreated but who, unlike the God of the Bible, is wholly impersonal and uncommunicative. The Bible’s teaching about the nature of God requires ex nihilo creation. Anything less would undercut the Bible’s picture of God as sovereign, eternal, holy, and free.

    Jesus of Nazareth.
    I trust in his very literal bodily person and in nothing more.
