If this tree didn’t fall all by itself, then there’s got to be a God

If I told you that the tree in the picture in this blog post fell all by itself, would you believe me? Then why do you believe people when they say that the universe formed all by itself?

I saw this tree today and it made me realize that a person and a saw were involved in its fall. I saw much nature today and it made me realize that a Creator was involved in its existence.

No one denies that an app had a programmer; a symphony, a composer; a skyscraper, an architect. Why deny that a person had a Creator? After all, the incredible intricacies of earth’s myriad of life forms cry out that they were formed by a Creator, not accidentally.

Ancient ruins aren’t considered to be the result of nature (even when their creator is unknown). Why should humans be?

People see the existence of ancient ruins as proof that they were created, not made by nature. My existence says the same thing.

The world is far too complex to ever be fully explained by science. To be hopeful in this mystery of existence, we need faith. I don’t need a logical explanation for my consciousness or for the living Jesus. I simply experience them both thru out the day.

Nothing matters to matter. It has no consciousness. For any life to matter, there has to be something beyond matter. Life inhabits matter, but it isn’t a part of the material world. When life leaves, the physical body loses function, not material.

That we humans are capable of being astonished at the beauty and grandeur of the universe, is itself an astonishment! Everyday I see the risen Jesus do several things that astonish me. The awe in my heart encourages me to believe more and more in Him!

When life seems bad and we give up hope, life comes apart at the “seems.” Keep your hope high; don’t let it die.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia."
