Do You Believe In Science?
Ministry Update November 26, 2017
I witnessed at Missouri State University on Monday November 29, 2017. While handing out tracts on the way to open-air preach, one student said no to a tract, but she smiled and said that she’s a Christian. I don’t think she could tell the tract was a Gospel tract, so I’m guessing she realizes that I share the Gospel weekly at the campus. Another student smiled and waved as she walked by (a different student from last week). A couple of students recorded as they walked past. But the skateboarding atheist rolled by me. I was talking about how billions and billions of years do not explain how the universe came into existence. He stopped and came up to me and wanted to know, “Do you believe in science?”
He wanted to know if I believe in science. I assured him that I do. The Bible is full of science. I reiterated that I do not believe in evolution and reminded him that no matter how many billions of years you go back, you still can’t explain how everything came from nothing. I don’t care what Richard Dawkins claims. He laughed suggested that I take some science classes. I assured him that I have taken them right here at MSU. He seemed surprised. Then he wanted to know what my degree was in and I told him finance. He laughed as if that explains why I don’t believe in macro-evolution.
Why Do I Believe In God?
Then the skateboarding atheist wanted to know why I believe in God. I looked at the library across from us and said you can look at the library and know that there was a builder. It’s logical that if we can understand things that we see were made that it makes sense that there is a Creator. I told him that it is utter foolishness to believe that nothing created everything. (Earlier I encouraged students to give me one example where nothing ever created anything, let alone everything).
Then I reminded him that the fool has said in his heart there is no God (Psalm 14:1). I also told him that Romans 1 states that you can look around at creation and know there was a Creator. He scoffed and rode off before I could tell him that he suppresses the truth in unrighteousness. You see, he self-identified as a gay atheist the first time we met earlier this year. By his own admission, he proves Romans 1:18 is true. Of course the whole Bible is true, but I love when God’s word proves true while out witnessing. Even so, the young man breaks my heart. I don’t want to see anyone die in their sins and go to Hell. I pray that he and all other unbelievers at MSU will one day repent and trust Jesus.
