I am always prepared to give the reason for the hope that I have

This is one of my favorite Bible verses:

“… Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have …”
1 Peter 3:15

The reason for the hope that I have is my faith in God. But, more than that, the reason for the hope that I have is that I am convinced that there is scientific proof that there is a God.

My faith in God came slowly over the course of nine months (like a baby in the womb) in 1996 until it came crashing into me like a bolt of lightning.  I am in my fifties and I have believed in God for only 13 years. (See My Testimony for more information)

During those nine months, I learned that as Creator of the universe, God left his fingerprints all over his creation so that we can see that it is his handiwork. For over 40 years I was too blind to see the evidence. Now that I see the evidence, I do not know how I ever missed it.

There are many other people like me – people who look right into the face of God and cannot see it. This is the reason I like to tell other people the reasons why I believe in God.

So, how am I prepared to give the answer to everyone who asks me to give the reason for the hope that I have? I have my Reasons Why I Believe in God here in my website: X-Evolutionist.com.

In my website, I have endeavored to show the evidence that God left us to show that He is indeed the creator of the universe. I talk about the fossil record, dinosaurs, Charles Darwin, different breeds of dogs, and other topics, and show how the scientific evidence shows that life did not begin as a product of time and chance. Life required a creator, therefore God exists.

Most of you reading this, if you have made it down this far, think I am a crackpot. That does not bother me one bit. I am confident in my beliefs, and am certain the evidence supports them. I am also confident that once somebody looks at the evidence, as I did, they will see what I see.

As I said in my testimony, 13 years ago a creationist (crackpot, as I thought then) dared me to read a book. Zowie. How my life has changed since then….

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

Whatever is true, whatever is noble – think about such things

I would like to share one of my very favorite passages of the Bible. This is the apostle Paul writing in a letter to the Philippians:

Finally, brothers,
whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable—
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—
think about such things.

Philippians 4:8 (New International Version)

In my humble opinion, this is the ultimate example of “positive thinking”.

The world can be a very depressing place, and difficult to live in sometimes, if we concentrate on all the bad things that are happening around us.

But, no matter what is happening in the world, there are always true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy things happening, also. As Paul says, “think about such things”…
