“Dear Friend, I Found God”

Friend, I want you to know that I truly have found God, and this has changed my life forever.  I am excited to share this with you, and I hope you will take the time to read and consider it.

I know that not everyone believes in God.  But I want you to know that the evidence I have found for the existence of God is absolutely overwhelming.  This isn’t just a little belief I have in my heart, but it is the only reasonable conclusion when faced with the substantial volume of proof.

First, I have had to consider the “Law of Cause of Effect.” Basically, this states that “every material effect must have an adequate cause that existed before the effect.”  If I found my house crumbled to the ground, I could not blame it on the mosquito I found flying over the debris.  That would not be an adequate cause.  Something quite substantial would have to cause that to happen.  Would that also be true of our universe?  Do you know that there are over 100 billion galaxies in our universe and each galaxy (like our Milky Way) has over 100 billion stars in it?  Would a tiny ball of matter smaller than a proton be able to “Bang” Big enough to adequately cause this massive, material universe that we cannot even completely see, yet alone explore?  No, that would not be an adequate cause!  There must have been an original cause substantial enough to bring about the effect that is here.  In that, I found God!

Second, I have had to consider the “Law of Biogenesis.” Basically, this states that “life in the material universe comes from previous life of its own kind.”  This has been proven over and over, and science itself has shown that life never arises except from life.  It is evident that life is now here.  Where did it come from?  It could not have come from non-life.  Therefore, the origin of life on earth points back to an original life-giver.  Who could that be?  In that, I found God!

Third, I have had to consider the “Law of Rationality.” Basically, this states that “one must only draw and accept conclusions that are warranted by clear evidence.”  Specifically, think about the matter of design.  If there is design, that demands the conclusion that there is a designer.  A watch demands a watchmaker.  A painting demands a painter.  The design that is evident in the earth, the universe and even the human body is millions of times more complex than a watch or painting.  What conclusion does that evidence warrant?  Doesn’t that design also demand a designer?  In that, I found God!

There is no other explanation for the substantial amount of evidence than this conclusion:  There is a God! You are important to me, and I wanted to share that with you.
