The Identity of the Designer
“That then raises a very good question of whether God has identified himself to us. Is God impersonal, sort of like the Force in Star Wars? Or is he personal? By that I mean, is he a person? Does he have characteristics and qualities that we can understand and relate to? The answer is, YES!”—Dr. Danny Faulkner, Astronomer and Author
Listen to these words from the Bible. That which is known by God has been clearly communicated to all people. For God has made himself known to us.
“For since the creation of the world, God’s invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood through what God has made so that every person is without excuse.” —Romans 1:30 NKJV
The evidence of God’s existence and his true identity as the Creator of the universe are everywhere we look. His fingerprints, so to speak, are on everything he created, including you. Down to the smallest detail and every DNA molecule. God has carefully engineered the intricacies of your body and mind to give you the miracle of your life. Your eyes – your hands – your ability to think/feel, create. Most of all, your ability to love. All these gifts have been given to you by the one who made you.
“There’s no question about it, DNA has made us stand back in absolute wonder. It’s a great mystery, and some scientists have even called it “the language of God.” If the DNA in just one of your cells was written down—just the sequence itself—it would take five million pages in order to write it all down and then thirty-seven years just to read it.”—Dr. Georgia Purdom, Molecular Geneticist, Author
And you know what? That’s just the sequence of the DNA. That doesn’t even tell you how much information is in that DNA—it’s immeasurable. We can’t quantify it. We’re still trying to figure it out. And it just shows you how amazingly complex not only our cells are, but how amazingly complex we are. And the only way that this could have come about is by the intelligence and design of a Creator.
The Bible says it so simply, “You are fearfully and wonderfully made”(Psalm 139:14 KJV). You did not make yourself. You belong to God. This is the truth about who you are. But there is a problem.
