We need Christ-the real Christ. A Christ born of empty speculation or created to squeeze into the philosopher’s pattern simply won’t do. A recycled Christ, a Christ of compromise, can redeem no one. A Christ watered down, stripped of power, debased of glory, reduced to a symbol, or made impotent by scholarly surgery is not Christ but Antichrist.

Not only are there countless people who have found themselves in church, or on an Alpha course, precisely because the arguments of Dawkins and others left them dissatisfied, but there are also many stories of formerly high-profile atheists who ended up losing their surety, and in many cases converting to the Christian faith.

When an artist does a piece of art, even when he doesn’t write his name on the work he leaves a signature of sorts. A knowledgeable person can say the type of paint is right, the brush strokes are right, the age of the canvas is right…..and if the artist is someone like Rembrandt, an art historian can find out. They could even tell the difference between a student of Rembrandt, and Rembrandt himself.
If God created the universe like I believe he did, there should be a signature we can find in his creation that says he in fact created.
Our universe is amazing! Is it the sort of thing that could be created by a series of happy accidents?
When scientist are talking about evolution, they can’t seem to keep away from phrases like “What evolution had in mind” , and “Mother Nature”. But claim the driving force behind evolution is the survivability of random mutations.
DNA doesn’t have a mind to be thinking about what animals will need when the next environmental change comes. It in no way shape or form knows that a drought is coming. It doesn’t know that it’s predators are getting bigger, so that they need to respond in some way. But yet scientist can’t seem to avoid using terminology that requires a mind behind what we see in the universe.
Maybe they should ask themselves are they looking at the painting all wrong.
