Recognizing God by Jeanne Chatman
How do we recognize God? Do we use our five senses to recognize God? Can we see Him with our eyes, touch Him with our hands, smell Him with our nose, taste Him with our tongue, and hear Him with our ears? The answer is no, because God is a Spirit, and is not confined to the boundaries of this world. God is the Creator, who purposefully made our senses, our atmosphere, gravity, oxygen, all life, and the universe. The magnificent Creator is beyond our greatest imaginings. The Creator cannot be contained by human limitations. God knows all things, and made all things. God is all powerful, and the little finite minds of humans should not try to contain God, or understand God by their limited knowledge. However, they do.
We can see the handiwork of the Creator as we observe all of nature. We observe further handiwork when we look through a microscope or telescope. The intricate workings of cells, genetics, the vascular system, the respiratory system and other purposefully made parts of our bodies, scream that we have been made by a Supreme Being. Atheists do not want to recognize that there is a Creator. They try to fit all of creation in a box that they control. That is why Charles Darwin and his mentors invented the theory of evolution. They do not want to imagine that the Creator was great enough to instantly create all that is into existence. They want to limit God with their limitations, and do not consider that the great Creator also made time, space, and matter. So, they came up with a plan to eliminate God. They invented a theory based upon unproven assumptions that all things accidentally came into existence from nothing, and then evolved over billions of years. In their egocentricity they believe that they are enlightened and brilliant. However, their foolish behavior, philosophy, and opinions only present their ignorance in propagating their fairy tale, which is the theory of Darwinian Evolution. These witchdoctors should not be allowed to indoctrinate our youth with their unproven assumptions and ignorant opinions.
Recently, a university professor was interviewed by a national news TV reporter concerning Intelligent Design. The professor said that Intelligent Design was just a theory that would be a waste of time to teach. What does he think Darwinian evolution is? It is still a theory which has been around for more than 150 years that has absolutely no evidence to back it up. The theory of evolution proposes that life sprang from simple cells formed by a spark of life from rain on rocks. Is there any proof? NO! Do inanimate rocks produce life? This has never been observed and there is no proof, only a fairy tale about it. The theory of evolution produced another fantastic story that one specie morphed into another specie. According to this myth simple cells morphed into plants and fish, fish morphed into amphibians, amphibians morphed into reptiles, reptiles morphed into birds and mammals, and apes morphed into humans. Is there any proof that this happened? NO! Are there any transitional fossils? NO! Animals do have characteristics that look similar because they were created by the same Intelligent Designer. However, scales cannot morph into feathers, and apes cannot morph into supremely intelligent humans. There is no proof, only artists’ drawings and imaginative theories. The evolutionist interviewed thought that his theory was best and that it should be taught, excluding any other theory.
The professor mentioned that “separation of church and state” should be considered, and religion should not be taught in school. Intelligent Design is not a religion. It is not Creationism believed by many Christians and Jews. Scientists and professors that were formerly Atheistic Darwinian Evolutionists have observed through their research that the theory of evolution has too many faults. They have also observed that there is purposeful, intricate design in all things. They have concluded that there must be an Intelligent Designer who made all things. The name God, Jesus, Creator, Jehovah are not used. They did not reach their conclusion that there is an Intelligent Designer by converting to Christianity or Judaism. They have not established churches. They do not worship the Intelligent Designer. However, the Atheistic Darwinian Evolutionists are so infuriated that they have declared war on Intelligent Designers. They are persecuting these scientists and professors, whom the atheists consider to be traitors. Atheists don’t care about truth or new scientific evidence. If a finding doesn’t fit their theory, then they believe it needs to die and be buried.
The TV reporter interviewed a public school administrator, who gave an opinion based upon finances and not the welfare of students. He said that new textbooks would cost $70 each, and he didn’t want that expense. That was a lame excuse, because textbooks are usually upgraded every five years. New textbooks with equal space for Darwinian evolution and Intelligent Design could be purchased when the five years ended.
Atheistic Darwinian evolutionists do not want us to recognize that we have a spirit. They want us to believe that we are simply flesh and bones like the animals. However, they cannot explain the spiritual part of us that loves, thinks, gets our feelings hurt, grieves, feels compassion, and bonds with other human beings. They cannot explain the magnificence of the Creation. They behave like witch doctors, and make up stories about the Creation that they cannot back up with scientific facts. They consider themselves brilliant elitists who are mentally above most people, and they want us to believe that they have life all figured out. However, they are poor lost souls groping in the darkness, while claiming to have great knowledge.
Atheists cannot explain from where magnetism or electricity comes. They can give a feeble explanation of how it works, but they really don’t understand it. They cannot see the wind or explain it. Like the rest of us, they can observe the effects of the wind. There are many other things that our eyes cannot see, like the oxygen we breathe. However, that does not mean that there is no such thing.
All things cannot be evaluated by our five senses. Can we see time or space? NO! However, we try feebly to measure time here on earth. However, we recognize that time has to be measured differently in outer space, because of Einstein’s discoveries and theories. We cannot see space, but we have realized that it is a present matter, that needs to be considered in space exploration. The more mankind discovers, the more mankind realizes that there are things created by the Intelligent Designer that we need to consider and learn about.
Many scientists have concluded that the creation is complex, and purposely formed by a supreme Intelligent Designer. They stand amazed in the presence of the creation, and know that they are like babies just beginning to explore their universe. Atheistic Darwinian evolutionists want us to believe that they know it all, and they want us to believe their ridiculous theories. Any scientist or professor who crosses them will be fired, black balled, humiliated, loose grants, and be driven out of their elite society that rules the educational system.
Mankind has highly complex feelings of love. There are strong love bonds between the spirits of parents and children, husband and wife, siblings, and friends. When a loved one dies, it is obvious that the beautiful light of their spirit has left their body. Complex emotions burst forth from our spirit as we grieve, remember, and go on with our lives. Our spiritual being is clothed in flesh, but our true spiritual personage overflows with multitudes of elaborate, intricate thoughts and creative ideas that multiply. They are stored in our brain and are then expressed through our language and actions. Mankind is above all the animals and we humans rule the earth. Mankind was created by the Intelligent Designer, as were the animals. However, mankind is far different, and did not evolve from the animals. Mankind was created as a different specie.
Mankind is a magnificent spirit created with a temporary earthly body. Mankind rules the earth and changes the earth. As mankind thinks and wonders, he realizes that his spirit can communicate with his Creator’s spirit. He realizes that he is like a child to his Creator, who sends magnificent, loving thoughts to him. In the quietness of man’s thinking, he recognizes that there is a Creator God. Since the beginning of recorded history, mankind has sought to worship his Creator. However, mankind realized that his Creator is all powerful, and expects love, kindness,.compassion and obedience from human beings. Many groups of human beings did not like the expectations of their Creator. So, they created their own gods and used superstition, control of the weak, murder, and sexual perversion in their worship ceremonies.
God is love. Evil is the absence of love. Darkness is the absence of light. Cold is the absence of heat. Atheism is the absence of God.
Mankind has a choice. He can choose to follow his Creator, or he can reject his Creator. True love is freely given, not taken or forced. So, man’s eternal spirit has a choice during his brief life time on earth.
