Weighted by the Law of God.

“Now, my friend, are you ready to be weighed by this Law of God? A great many people say that if they keep the Commandments they do not need to be forgiven and saved through Christ. But have you kept them? I will admit that if you perfectly keep the Commandments, you do not need to be saved by Christ; but is there a man in the wide world who can truly say that he has done this? Young lady, can you say: “I am ready to be weighed by the Law? Can you, young man? Will you step into the scales and be weighed one by one by the Ten Commandments? Now face these Ten Commandments honestly and prayerfully. See if your life is right, and if you are treating God fairly. God’s statutes are just, are they not? If they are right, let us see if we are right. Let us get alone with God and read His Law—read it carefully and prayerfully, and ask Him to forgive us our sin and what He would have us to do.” D. L. Moody 

Leviticus 18:5 You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man does, he shall live by them: I am the Lord.

How can we know God exists?

There are trillions of reasons to believe in a supernatural, intelligent Creator. From DNA, to the basic atom, to the amazingly designed tiny fleas, to massive elephants, to the sun and its circuit, to the millions of stars and the entire universe, there is incredible complexity and order throughout creation. Let’s say you were walking along a beach and saw a message written in the sand: “Johnny, Make sure you come home at 5:00 p.m. for dinner. See you then. I love you. Mom.” Could you ever believe that the order of the words happened by a random process—by sheer accident? Could you conclude that perhaps the incoming waves left the words written in the sand? I seriously doubt it. Their very order and their constructed logical coherency tell you that the message was written by an intelligent mind. However, atheistic evolution takes an even greater leap away from common sense than just believing that a wave created a logical message. It says that there was absolutely nothing—no sand, no beach, or wave. It maintains that nothing created the sand and the waves. Such thoughts are totally illogical and are a departure from the laws of science. Something cannot come from nothing. If it did, then it wasn’t “nothing.” It was some sort of creative force.

What proof is there that this God exists? Even though through my natural senses I cannot see, hear, touch, taste, or smell Him, there is one other sense that I must not overlook. It is called “common” sense. When I look at a building, how can I know that there was a builder? I cannot see him, hear him, touch, taste, or smell him. Common sense tells me that the building is absolute 100 percent scientific proof that there was a builder. There cannot be a building without a builder. Buildings don’t build themselves. I don’t need faith to believe in a builder; all I need is eyes that can see and a brain that works.

This same concept is true for paintings and painters. When I look at a painting, how can I know there was a painter? Common sense tells me that the painting is absolute 100 percent scientific proof that there was a painter. Paintings don’t happen by themselves. I couldn’t want better proof that there was a painter than to have the painting in front of me. I don’t need faith to believe in a painter; all I need is eyes that can see and a brain that works.

Exactly the same reasoning applies with the existence of God. How can we know God exists? We cannot see Him, hear Him, touch, taste, or smell Him. Common sense tells us that creation is absolute 100 percent scientific proof that there was a Creator. We cannot have a creation without a Creator. We don’t need faith to believe in a Creator. All we need is eyes that can see and a brain that works. This is exactly what the Bible says: “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse” (Rom. 1:20).

So, just as I don’t need faith to believe in a builder because I have the building in front of me, so I don’t need faith to believe in a Creator, because I have creation in front of me. However, if I want the builder to do something for me, then I need to have faith in him. The same is true with God: “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Heb. 11:6).

Albert Einstein may not have trusted in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, but he believed in the existence of God. He said, “In the view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what makes me really angry is that they quote me for support of such views.” A little child and the genius of Albert Einstein have one thing in common: common sense.

Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse…

Dropping a Swiss watch.

“To improve a living organism by random mutation is like saying you could improve a Swiss watch by dropping it and bending one of its wheels or axis. Improving life by random mutations has the probability of zero.” Albert Szent-Gyorgi, Nobel Laureate (Medicine)]

Isaiah 45:12 I have made the earth, And created man on it. My hands stretched out the heavens, And all their host I have commanded.

Attending a wedding for a gay couple.

Is there a difference in attending a wedding for a gay couple and one for a couple that is living together? What about if the bride is pregnant?

The moral Law is spiritual, so anyone who has as much as looked with lust has committed adultery in the heart (see Matt. 5:27,28). It is therefore not unreasonable to conclude that in some way every couple has sinned sexually in God’s eyes—whether they are physical adulterers, adulterers-at-heart, or fornicators, pregnant or not. However, by getting legally married they are fulfilling God’s plan for a man and a woman, because He is the One who sanctioned the institution of marriage (see Gen. 2:24, Matt. 19:5,6). Every wedding I have attended falls into this category.

However, “marriage” between homosexuals has never been sanctioned by God. Marriage is God’s institution and He said it is between a man and a woman. Two men or two women cannot be married. So when gays are “joined together in holy matrimony,” it is as meaningless as a man being married to his dog or cat, hoping for God’s blessing on bestiality. God has never authorized such a union, nor such behavior. God’s Word says, “If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination” (Lev. 20:13).

Deuteronomy 7:3 Nor shall you make marriages with them. You shall not give your daughter to their son, nor take their daughter for your son.

The warnings of the holy Scripture.

We should never disregard the warnings of holy Scripture. The Bible is God’s Word and will for sinful humanity. If we refuse to take note, we will suffer terrible consequences. God warned His people that if they refused to walk in obedience, He would severely punish them as a nation. Had they taken heed they would have enjoyed great blessings, rather than endure great suffering.

1 Kings 9:7 then I will cut off Israel from the land which I have given them; and this house which I have consecrated for My name I will cast out of My sight. Israel will be a proverb and a byword among all peoples.

Knowing the future.

If you knew even five minutes into the future, I am certain things would radically change for you. I am not talking about playing blackjack in Vegas; rather, I am thinking about what car or plane you would climb into, what pill you would consume. I am sure if Heath Ledger had known the future, he would have been more careful about what he swallowed. I am sure if President John F. Kennedy had known just a few minutes into the future, he would have thought twice about climbing into a limo in Dallas. The fact is, we don’t know even a moment into the future—but we can know Him who knows the future.

The Bible tells us that God created time and that He can flip through it as you and I flip through the pages of a history book. Those who find that hard to believe simply need to study Matt. 24 or Luke 21, and see how the words of Jesus parallel history before it came into being. The Word of God perfectly predicts the days in which we live. Jesus even predicted that His words would never pass away (see Matt. 24:25), and 2,000 years later we still have them.

What is going to happen in the future? God knows; and it is an unspeakable consolation to know that with all the chaos and uncertainty in this world, there is Someone who is in control. Absolute control.

Ecclesiastes 8:7 For he does not know what will happen; So who can tell him when it will occur?

If God is good by nature…

God’s anger against our sins is not only justified, it should be expected if God is good by nature. No judge in a civil court would be considered a “good” judge if he allowed crimes to go unpunished. If he is good, he must see that justice is done, and if God is perfectly good, He must see that perfect justice is carried out on the Day of Wrath. The demands of a perfect, unbending Law leave every one of us in terrible trouble. Who of us hasn’t lusted and therefore violated the Seventh Commandment (see Matt. 5:27,28)? Who hasn’t borne false witness, stolen, etc.? The Law leaves us guilty and “brings about wrath” (see Rom. 4:15), and it is that knowledge that drives us to the cross.

Micah 7:9 I will bear the indignation of the Lord, Because I have sinned against Him, Until He pleads my case And executes justice for me. He will bring me forth to the light; I will see His righteousness.
