Children’s Story The Cannibal’s Testimony A skeptic visiting the Solomon Islands tried to persuade Children’s Story The Cannibal’s Testimony A skeptic visiting the Solomon Islands tried to persuade a native that the story of Jesus and the Bible were a myth. The native explained that before the missionaries came, their villages were dirty and they ate pigs. Also, they were cannibals who ate foreigners and enemies. All that changed when they heard about Jesus and the Bible. Then, he looked at the skeptic and said, “I hope you are wrong, because you are looking delicious to me!”

Alternate Introduction Introspection Why do we need to examine ourselves? Because we are creatures Alternate Introduction Introspection Why do we need to examine ourselves?

David Salazar • David Salazar is a landscaper in Freeland, MI who loves the David Salazar • David Salazar is a landscaper in Freeland, MI who loves the Lord. He is not a SDA, but is a Sabbath-keeper. Speaking to one of his customers after work, they began to talk about politics and world events. The man was a Hindu and suddenly began to rail on Christians and the Bible. He claimed to be an atheist, then began expounding pantheism, saying everything was god. There is no personal God, and the Bible is myth. He claimed that a good God would not allow all the suffering and evil in the world, if He existed.

David Salazar • Taking just so much of it as he could, David began David Salazar • Taking just so much of it as he could, David began to challenge him, replying, “You said you were an atheist, yet you rally do believe in god, but that god is everything. You said I am god and you are god. If you are god, why did you cause all this wickedness, and what are you going to do about it? ” The man got very angry and stormed into the house. Later, he spoke civilly to David and did not fire him.

Text: Genesis 1: 1 • If God does not exist, than Genesis 1: 1 Text: Genesis 1: 1 • If God does not exist, than Genesis 1: 1 presents a problem. It says: • “ 1: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. ” • Either this statement is true or it is false; there is no other choice. If God does not exist, He is nothing! In that case, where did everything come from? ” What was the “something” that was the “First Cause? ”

Main Thought • Something can create something, and Something can create nothing, but Nothing Main Thought • Something can create something, and Something can create nothing, but Nothing creates Something, and Nothing creates Nothing. • Since I am surrounded by many things, Something must have created them. What or Who is that Something? How could something just suddenly appear from nothing? That is unscientific and illogical.

Created Nothing! Therefore: Nothing Exists! Created Nothing! Therefore: Nothing Exists!

Changing Theories • It is because more scientists are finding evidence of a intelligent Changing Theories • It is because more scientists are finding evidence of a intelligent design in nature, and a catastrophic event that altered the past natural history. Rather than acknowledge a divine origin of life on earth, and a sudden death of prehistoric animals, new theories are being taught as scientific fact, when they are unsustainable. • 1 Timothy 6: 20. • “ 20: O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: ”

The Space Program • Although the modern space program has greatly increased our understanding The Space Program • Although the modern space program has greatly increased our understanding of the marvelous universe, it still has not answered the major purpose for which it was established—how did everything begin, and where did life on earth come from? • Some theories are actually ridiculous in their attempts to circumvent the clear declaration of Genesis 1: 1. All try to find a first cause other than that of Scripture.

The Meaning of Life? • What is the meaning of life? It’s perhaps the The Meaning of Life? • What is the meaning of life? It’s perhaps the oldest philosophical question. At the end of a hysterical movie, the Monty Python gang told us it’s, “Try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book now and then, get some walking in, and try and live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations. ” (David J.

Pasteur’s Discovery: • Louis Pasteur (1822 -1895) of France discovered that diseases are spread Pasteur’s Discovery: • Louis Pasteur (1822 -1895) of France discovered that diseases are spread by bacteria saved countless lives. Others saw bacteria before Pasteur did. But he was the first to show that living things come only from living things. Before that, many scientists believed in spontaneous generation a theory that life could come from things that are not alive, such as dirt. (World Book Encylopedia, Vol. 15, 1989 Edition, p. 193. )

Spontaneous Generation • In honesty, George Wald stated in an article entitled “The Origin Spontaneous Generation • In honesty, George Wald stated in an article entitled “The Origin of Life” in Scientific American, Vol. 190, August 1954: • “Spontaneous generation was disproved a hundred years ago.

Atheistic Evolution is a Religion, Not Science. • From the mouth of scientists and Atheistic Evolution is a Religion, Not Science. • From the mouth of scientists and philosophers comes the open admission that the “so called scientific” theories of origins are based on atheistic evolution, which is not rooted in science, but in faith. Faith that— • “ 1: In the beginning God DID NOT created the heaven and the earth. ” • That qualifies it as a religion based on a belief, even in the face of evidence to the contrary.

Atheistic Religion • Our children are being taught a religion of atheistic belief [religion] Atheistic Religion • Our children are being taught a religion of atheistic belief [religion] in school and in the media, passing as science and fact. It is unsubstantiated hypotheses or myth.

Evidence • The Bible gives ample evidence of the loving character of God, and Evidence • The Bible gives ample evidence of the loving character of God, and the evil nature of Satan— both of who are real and exist. If the first cause of evil exists, so must the First Cause of good exist. That does not mean they are both the same in origin or character.

Faith vs. Myth • Hebrews 11: 1. 1: Now faith is the substance of Faith vs. Myth • Hebrews 11: 1. 1: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. • Faith is based upon evidence and builds confidence in the fulfillment of what is promised. Myth is built upon unsubstantiated belief.

Goodness • The justification given by atheists is that a good god would not Goodness • The justification given by atheists is that a good god would not allow so much evil in the world. However, that is not evidence of God’s existence, it is a statement of their belief about His character. If evil proves that God does not exist, doesn’t goodness, love, heroic selfsacrifice prove that God does exist?

Romans 2: 4. “ 4: Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and Romans 2: 4. “ 4: Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? ”

Self-Deception • “A person can be persuaded by an abominable argument and remain unconvinced Self-Deception • “A person can be persuaded by an abominable argument and remain unconvinced by one that ought to be accepted. ” Antony Flew, ‘There is a God’ (New York: Harper. Collins Publishers, 2007) p. 41, quoted in S. Pandit, Bk. 1, p. 33. He defended atheism ardently for 60 years before his conversion.

Wicked Men? • There are wicked men in the world, and there are good Wicked Men? • There are wicked men in the world, and there are good men in the world. Does that prove that men do not exist? It only gives evidence of the character of certain men. • The Bible gives ample evidence of the loving character of God, and the evil nature of Satan—both of who are real and exist.

Summary • Atheistic evolution does not have scientific, philosophical, or Biblical support. Either God Summary • Atheistic evolution does not have scientific, philosophical, or Biblical support. Either God is the First Cause of all that exists, or He isn’t. Both are a matter of faith. There is abundant evidence to support that God did do what Genesis 1: 1 said He did. He created all things— except evil, which originated in a perfect angel who used his power of choice for selfish purposes.

Hallock, 5, 000 Best Modern Illustrations, #299, p. 51. )

Conclusion • Even noble and educated men can wrest the word of God and Conclusion • Even noble and educated men can wrest the word of God and nature to say things that are not true to justify their unbelief. To believe that God exists warrants the question of accountability and judgment for our lives. Some would prefer to believe that He does not exist, or to believe a myth about His character that to repent and be saved.

Application • How is it with your life? Are you playing games with God, Application • How is it with your life? Are you playing games with God, hoping that He really doesn’t hold us accountable for our deeds and thoughts? He wants to recreate the image of Christ in you for His glory. He can and will do that if we cooperate with Him. He can make you a new person when you are born again.

That Someone is Christ, through His Holy Spirit, and that something is the image of Jesus’ character in you, “the hope of glory. ” Will you let Him recreate you into a son or daughter of God? • Psalm 14: 1. “ 1: The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God…. ”
