Do you doubt the existence of a Supreme Intelligent Being?
Are there not laws of conservation of Energy governing the universe? Remember, Energy cannot be created nor destroyed (#1 & #2 laws of thermodynamics). You can only change its state. Through logic then, we can conclude that Energy had no beginning (cannot be created) and will never end (cannot be destroyed). In other words, ENERGY IS ETERNAL. Do you not think that ENERGY RULES then?
If you believe in the 'BIG BANG' then tell me, how did ENERGY 'appear' out of nowhere?
In fact, Energy can only happen as a result of vacuum or complete nothingness, of which there was no beginning. The vacuum causes Energy to flow. This flow has always been and will always be. No beginning, no end. The nothingness is also still there and will always be. Why? Because PURE ENERGY ITSELF IS INVISIBLE. Energy is what causes perception and conscious awareness. You cannot see Pure Energy itself, but you can observe its effects. Energy holds the complete blueprint of ALL cause and effect of the entire Universe.
Did you ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe, Energy in its purest form is intelligent/conscious? Do you have proof that it's not? Thus God is PURE INTELLIGENT ENERGY, a PERFECT, UNIVERSALLY CONSCIOUS BEING without flaw.
What causes you to 'think', be 'intelligent', 'perceive reality', etc.? Is it not ENERGY? Do you agree that Energy allows for brain functions which eventually bring about intelligence and self-awareness in us ('I think, therefore I am')? Now ask yourself: IF ENERGY IS NOT INTELLIGENT, HOW DO YOU SUPPOSE SOMETHING THAT IS NOT INTELLIGENT BRING ABOUT INTELLIGENCE ITSELF?
Does it not make logical sense that if SOMETHING is to bring about intelligence, IT would have to be intelligent also? To say that something non-intelligent brings forth or creates 'intelligence' by random accident is absurd!
My proof here is common sense.
Now, since God is ETERNAL and we are created in His image, we are ETERNAL also. We are made of ENERGY too, are we not? So if you decide you want nothing to do with God and His RULE of the Universe, then where will you spend eternity after your soul and spirit leave your mortal body? Is God going to receive you into His Presence? Wait a minute! You just said you didn't want anything to do with God! I'll let you think about that one.
Energy has it's own set of laws and if we mess with those laws, we'll probably get burned! Energy is a two-edged sword. It can be beneficial to us, but it can also destroy us. It all depends on our attitude towards it. If we as human beings are to live in peace and harmony with one another and with nature, should we not submit to these laws, the laws of the Creator? Should we not submit to God? Look at our society. Do we not have judges, laws, law enforcement, etc.? If we didn't, wouldn't there be chaos? If someone breaks the law, should they go unpunished? Should they not be charged or go to jail?
To sum it all up:
ENERGY = LIFE, LIGHT, REALITY, CONSCIOUS AWARENESS
ENERGY is ETERNAL
GOD is PURE ENERGY
Look around you, at all of nature. Do you not see design? For every design there must be a Designer! Do you not see programming in the complex makeup of DNA? For every program there must be a Programmer!
So why are we here? Why did God create us? Simple. God wanted a family to enjoy. God is good and wants us to enjoy life with Him and with one another. Do you not suppose God loves you and cares for your well-being?
So why is this world full of problems? Simple. Because most people have left God and want their own rule. They want to be their 'own god' and don't want the perfect rule of God. They've taken prayer out of schools. They think they don't need God! But God is the 'Source' and if you separate yourself from the Source, you suffer decay and corruption. So mankind is now 'fumbling' around, so to speak, without God. God is allowing these problems in the world so that mankind can learn through 'experience'. God has already warned through 'words', but mankind will not listen to the 'Word of God'. The more stubborn a man is to listen to and obey God, the more painful the experience will be.
If you're a parent and you try to teach your children not to touch a hot stove, how would you do it? With 'words'. You warn them. If they don't listen to you, then what alternative is there? Your children will learn through 'experience'. They will touch the hot stove and get burned. They will think twice before doing it the next time.
Will these problems on planet earth go on forever? Of course not. Read the last book of the Bible. It will tell you what will happen in the future. God is coming back to judge mankind and set things straight. This world will be restored by God. Either you submit to His Way or get out of the way!
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God has shown it unto them. For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His ETERNAL POWER and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things." Romans 1:18-23
1 The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good. 2 The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God. 3 They have all turned aside, They have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one. Psalm 14:1-3
"But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that comes to God must believe that HE IS, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him." Hebrews 11:6
