“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."
The fool has said in his heart, "there is no God."
Happy April Fool's Day! Although I have fallen for my share of April Fool's jokes, I am not a Psalm 14 fool. I know there is a God in heaven. He is Alpha. The beginning. The One who created all things.
I know that some would say I am an irrational fool for believing that the universe was created. But which is more irrational?
- Believing matter was created by an eternal being, or
- Believing matter simply was not, then was, then rapidly expanded and became the whole universe... (That is a very simplistic summary of the Big Bang theory)
Even if all life came about by evolution, the one who denies the existence of a creator still has to deal with the origin of the very first speck of matter.
During the April A to Z Challenge, I'll be talking about some of the wonders of God's creation. I hope you will follow with me. I'm also doing this challenge on my other blog: In the Care of the Great Physician. On there, I'll be talking about my crazy medical history and what God has taught me through it.
