Not By Chance

- June 22, 2005

When I was a freshman in chiropractic college, I was studying the anatomy of the eye one day. There is a particular muscle that turns the eye to one side. It can't attach in the limited space of the orbit in order to pull the eye more than a few millimeters, so it has to run through a "pulley" that is a small ligament on the orbit. In seeing this, I thought to myself, "How is it possible for this whole arrangement to have developed by pure chance as the evolutionists would have us believe?" And that was just the MUSCLES of the eye! The internal workings are much more complex; as if they created by an "intelligence".

At that point, I became pretty convinced that we WERE created by some sort of intelligence, but of what nature? If God exists and He created us, then why does He allow so much suffering? Are we just here for his amusement or did He have some other purpose in mind? If God doesn't care about us, then why should we care about Him? Or perhaps He does care, but He wants us to make it on our own? Did He ever try to guide us at all? Maybe some of the people who claimed to be "prophets" WERE given instuctions by God. They all seem to preach a similiar message of honesty and morals.

But Jesus was different. He didn't say that He was a prophet picked by God to deliver a message. He claimed that He WAS God. Such audacity! He said that He came to save us from sin so we could be with Him for eternity. What are we to make of that? If He really said such things, then He would either have to be completely NUTS or a pathological liar. Or He would have to be telling the truth. There's really no middle ground. Nobody believes that He didn't exist. Some believe He didn't really say ALL of those things, but that it was just made up. In that case, whoever made it up must have been pretty evil. But how could ALL of the writers of the New Testament have gotten together and decided to make up the same story?

I can't come up with another answer other than what He said is true.
