Either God is Real--Or He Isn't

Do you wonder if God is real? Maybe you are doubter or unbeliever because no one has given you enough proof to believe. A jury doesn’t need to have every question answered before it can reach a verdict. They just need to examine the evidence to convince them beyond a reasonable doubt. Here are three pieces of evidence to consider. (Click the links for a more detailed explanation)

Item #1  Fulfilled Bible Prophecies The Biblical prophets wrote down numerous predictions in the Scriptures which came to pass hundreds of years later exactly as they prophesied. Fulfilled Bible prophecies provide proof that God knows the future, can control earthly events, and the Bible is true. Jesus fulfilled more than 300 prophecies. The probability of one man fulfilling 48 prophecies is one in 10157.

Item #2  The Amazingly Complex Human Body When you look at your computer with its many complex parts, you know that it required an intelligent designer to coordinate each part so that it would function. Even though you didn’t see the computer being designed and built, you have no doubt that someone, somewhere, made it happen. When you examine complexity of the human body you know it could not have come into existence by accident.

Item #3  Near Death Experiences This is when someone dies and is resuscitated, and the person claims they either went to heaven or hell. While I don’t believe many of the testimonies of those claiming NDE’s, I do believe some people’s experiences are real. I hope you will take the time to watch this incredible video interview of a former atheist was dead for 15 minutes. (If you don’t have time to watch the entire video, fast forward to the 35:45 mark)  

If you’ve read the information on the linked pages, I hope you’ve been convinced beyond a reasonable doubt. The good news is that God is not just real but He loves you and has a purpose for your life. I hope you’ll continue your search for truth.  www.kentcrockett.blogspot.com   www.makinglifecount.net

Consequences

If you wanted to shut down an airport, how would you do it? Just go back for your camera. In 2001, a man who had passed through security screening at Atlanta’s Hartsfield Airport realized he had left his camera bag behind. Rather than going through security a second time, he hurried down the up-escalator instead of going through the check-point.

Security personnel noticed the man on the run and were forced to take preventative measures. They immediately halted all departing flights and rerouted planes that were destined for Atlanta. Delta cancelled over 147 flights, 10,000 people were evacuated from the airport, and many were scrambling to book hotel rooms. Suitcase conveyor belts were stopped, keeping passengers from claiming their bags. The breach in security cost “tens of millions of dollars” according to the Hartsfield operations manager.

His foolish decision created enormous problems that cost millions of dollars. Sometimes we don’t realize that our decisions will create either good or bad consequences. It’s true when it comes to getting married, handling our money, and thousands of other decisions. Sooner or later everyone will sit at the banquet of consequences (see Proverbs 1:29-31).

In many cases, an impulsive decision is usually a wrong one. It’s best to take your time and think ahead about the consequences of your decision before making it. God’s Word has much to say about how to live and make correct decisions. But you will need to have the guts to take the right path when it seems like everyone else is going in the opposite direction.  www.kentcrockett.blogspot.com  www.makinglifecount.net
