Sadie Joy

Of all of the arguments that atheists have to back up their lack of belief in God, there is 1 question that rises to the surface in my opinion that puts glaring holes in their beliefs. To the atheist, this world that we live in is a complete accident. A “big bang” transpired millions of years ago that caused the Universe to settle into the current arrangement we have now. I know it is a lot more philosophical than that, but when push comes to shove, atheists believe that life happens by shear chance and mathematics. Science to them holds the answer to the deepest questions facing humanity today. They can tell you what dinosaurs looked like 10 billion years ago. They can tell you what sort of life the planet Mars can contain. They can study dna samplings dating back thousands of years.

I don’t claim to be the smartest guy in the world. I know that without a doubt, a very smart, sophisticated evolution believer could explain their opinion of the origin of life far more articulate than I ever could. They would probably use big words and tell me how close they were to a perfect score on the math portion on their S.A.T’s. In fact if you are a believer in evolution, you are probably not even considering reading the rest of this blog casting me aside as another brainwashed believer in creationism.

Last Thursday, my wife gave birth to our 2nd child Sadie Joy at 10:02 am. Mr. Atheist, you can explain life in scientific theory to me all you want to. After watching the births of both of my children, there is absolutely nothing that you can try and articulate to me to tell me that life is an accident. Last night, as I sat in my daughters room holding her as she lay peacefully in my arms, I could not help but shed a tear in awe of the miracle of life. Psalm 139:14 says, “I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” It does not say I praise you for I fearfully and wonderfully evolved from a space explosion.

You may call me ignorant. You may say I am uneducated, brainwashed and inferior. While I do agree that I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer, I echo the words of Job when He said, “For I know my redeemer lives.” You want proof? Sadie Joy Baker was born. Life was created. The spirit of the living God breathed life into her while she was still forming in her mothers womb. Life is far too valuable to be an accident. I choose to live my life as a believer, not as a sceptic.

With Expectancy!
