When the world seems like it’s falling apart, it forces each of us to ask ourselves: “What is the point of it all? Why am I here? What’s the purpose of my life?”
There’s a longing to know where we came from, and why we exist. To answer these questions, we must go back to the beginning—way back to the beginning of everything when the universe and the earth itself came into existence.
Now here we are, you and me, living on this beautiful blue planet looking up at the stars wondering… How? Why? What’s behind it all? Who’s responsible for giving us our world? And this gift we call life?
The Intelligent Design of the Universe
“Astronomers and physicists have concluded that the universe definitely had a beginning. However, this is the big problem. Natural law cannot explain the origin of the universe and the origin of life.”—Dr. Danny Faulkner, Astronomer and Author
This fact alone leads us to a simple, logical conclusion—with a cause outside of the natural world, a cause beyond scientific investigation must have started it all.
“Physics alone, science alone, can’t tell you what that cause is, it simply says there must have been a cause. When you look at a SmartphoneⓇ, for instance, it’s obvious that someone created it. Someone designed it, someone built it. Well look at the world around us, it’s far more complex. So obviously this world had a Creator, and the Creator had to have incomprehensible power, intelligence, and wisdom.”—Dr. Danny Faulkner, Astronomer and Author
It’s just common sense. This should point us back to the very first words of the Bible. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).
“As far as we know, the earth is not only the only suitable place in the universe for life, but it’s the only place where life actually exists. That makes the earth exceedingly unique and exceedingly special. It just screams design to me. It screams that there is a Creator, and this all didn’t happen by accident.—Dr. Danny Faulkner, Astronomer and Author
If God created the universe, and he created us as his creations, what is he like?
