Faith Filled Friday: HAPPENSTANCE

June 19, 2015

Billions of years ago, rocks whizzed around in space.
No one asked where the rocks came from; they just were

The rocks shaped themselves into orbs and coalesced into systems.
No one asked why; they just did

The sun, planets, moons, and stars fell into place nicely creating our Milky Way.
No one asked why; they just did

Millions of years ago, life began on the third rock from the sun.
People say it came from afar, but no one knows how or where and no one asked why.

Millions of years ago, life traveled through the frozen air and oxygen-less space.
No one asked where that life came from; how it came into being; it just was

Millions of years ago, life traveled past super-hot suns that, if too close, would have burned it up; if too far, would have frozen it solid.
No one asked how it survived

Millions of years ago, life began as a single cell in our oceans, but others insist it was the volcanic lava flows.
No one asked why or how; it just did

Those single cells decided to merge, changing shape and forming new creatures.
No one asked why or how; they just did

Millions of years ago, those cells coalesced into sea shrimp, fish, and frogs
No one argued for the theory of “Like Begets Like”; it simply did not apply

Those creatures moved from the sea to dry land, changing from water-breathing to air-breathing.
No one asked how or why; simply because oxygen formed, they decided to change, so they did

Over time, the invertebrates developed vertebrae; hairless grew hair; nail-less grew nails; scales fell off leaving dermis
No one asked how or why; they just did

Over thousands of years, monkeys became humans and developed a conscience
No one asked why or how; they just did. No one questioned where a conscious came from; it was just there

Yet, tell someone that God created all the universe in six days, hundreds of questions arise: Who is God? Where is God? Where did God come from? You expect me to believe that one person created all this and in less than a week? Why should I believe in God? Can God create a sun too hot for him to hold or a planet too heavy for him to handle? If I can’t see God, how can I believe in him?

Happenstance is defined as coincidence. The whole Theory of Evolution is simply happenstance. Believing that we humans are here solely by the ‘luck of the draw’ makes less sense than believing in an all-powerful, all-knowing being. Without God, nothing was created.

Proverbs 16:4  The Lord hath made all things for himself; yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
Psalm 148:5 – Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created.
Malachi 2:10 – Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?
John 1:3-5 – All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life: and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
John 1:12 – But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God
Colossians 1:16 – For by him were all things created that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.
