    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    If you're interested in learning more about God, you can leave a message here, you could go to this site and leave a message or you can read on.



    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    The laws of thermodynamics

       Have you ever looked at the laws of thermodynamics? These laws themselves prove the existance of God. Let's discuss them.

    Law #1:
    Energy can be changed from one form to another, but it cannot be created or destroyed. The total amount of energy and matter in the Universe remains constant, merely changing from one form to another.

       Energy cannot be created or destroyed? This brings up the question of how the energy came to be in the first place. If you just say, 'It's been here forever' check the next law.

    Law #2:
    In all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves the system, the potential energy of the state will always be less than that of the initial state

       This is saying the things 'wear down'. A watch will run until the battery is out of charge, you will go down a hill until you run out of hill, etc. In every energy transfer, there is also wasted energy. Heat is a wasted energy, and I'll explain why in a moment.
       The universe is constantly trying to balance itself out. A charge flow from a battery flows into a circuit because there is a voltage difference. Water moves because of a pressure difference. Heat transfers because of a temperature difference. These difference make things move, let us exist, and keep the world in check.
       So if heat is always moving ( and it moves from hot to cold ) why hasn't the entire universe become a uniform temperature? The answer is that the universe has not existed forever, and the universe is still 'balancing itself out'. Eventually, the universe would become a uniform temperature, it would reach its equilribium.
       So, if the universe has not existed forever, and it couldn't have created itself, ( due to its laws ) it must have been created from an outside source.
       Our creator loves us, and he left us the story of creation in his Word, the Bible. If you have never read the Bible before, you really should do so! The Bible has brought love, peace, and joy wherever it is accepted. ( By the way, what are the three things that man continually seeks? Peace, love, and joy. We long for those three things )

    My sister's taking that and loves it! Incidentally, she's doing the Dr. Wile book Exploring Creation with Physics. I think I'd like to do that :)

    Actually, this came from physics! And yes, I love physics!

    Hmm.. good stuff! This sounds like chemistry. Am I right? It reminds me of my Chemistry book by a Christian scientist called "Exploring Creation with Chemistry". The author is Dr. J. L. Wile. He's not Catholic, for your info, and he makes chemistry a breeze! He also points out certain things that we learn through our world that prove the existence of God, though this is not one of them. Interesting thoughts, though! I thought about your point too when I took that course. Are you enjoying chemistry?
