Intelligent design

     Hello! I just wanted to quick say thank you for reading my blog. I'm looking forward to doing ministry throughout my life, and writing things on here is one way I can practice expressing my thoughts on ministry and apologetics. If you read this and have any questions, or any ideas for future things I could write about, feel free to comment your thoughts below. Thanks again, and I hope you enjoy!      Being a Christian who is constantly around other Christians is pretty easy, but sometimes it leaves us unprepared for conversations with people who have no belief in God whatsoever. I've heard many people say , “Oh God’s not real. There’s no proof that he exists. Christians only believe in Him based on blind faith” If you’re someone who holds your faith in Jesus as important in life, hearing comments that belittle your faith like this can really hurt. How can we as Christians respond to doubt and disbelief in the world? Are people right when they say there’s no tangible proof

A Higher Perspective

     I want you to imagine for a second that you have one week to live. You've just found out that you will die in seven days, and now all that's left for you to do is decide what you will do with those seven days. What would you do?     The thing is, for most of our life we spend a lot of our time chasing these goals we have that are supposed to make us happy and satisfied. Maybe it's a well paying job, a skill, a fit body, a perfect husband or wife, or popularity. Or maybe you don't care about goals, and you just want to be entertained each day. Whatever the case, this all changes with a week left to live doesn't it? When you have a week left to live, these things become a lot less important. Why? Because they are meant to make this life  better. What these things don't do is offer any hope for a future, eternal life.       This world offers all sorts of things to try and make life better, but anything we gain here is only temporary. No matter what you find sa

Our need and God's plan

     In the first post I uploaded I focused on two points: God has to exist because creation can’t exist without him, and we are accountable to God because he created us.  But why did God create us? And why is the world we live in now so full of evil and suffering? First off, God didn’t create us because he needed us. Simply put, he created us for his pleasure ( God created us in His own image to expand his glory through us, not because he was lacking in anything.  God is a personal God and he created beings which he could have a personal relationship with, however, he recognized that any relationship would be meaningless unless humans chose to have a relationship with Him, so he gave us free will, the ability to choose whether to live in relationship with Him and follow him or to not follow him and go our own way. God created us to love him and rule with him, but he doesn’t force us to; we have a choice.  You’ve most likely heard the story of Adam and Eve but to sum

The reality of God

        Hello! Welcome to my first post! My purpose for this blog is to talk about truth and what our response should be to important truths. The biggest truth that has had a tremendous impact on my life is the truth of Christianity. I’ve centered my whole life around it, and this blog will be based around it as well. So then, I’m going to start by first explaining what Christianity is, for anyone who hasn't heard it before. This post will talk about the evidence for God, and a following post will talk about Our need and God's plan . Do you ever wonder why are we here? How are we here? It’s commonly taught today that the universe is the result of a big explosion, and that life just made itself, eventually evolving into all the species we have today; but what our culture doesn’t want you to know is that there is no proof for any of that. I believe there’s only one thing that explains reality: God.  Many people say the idea of God is crazy; he's just made up; he’s not actuall
