Welcome to my page about faith written for modern 21th century people who are open-minded enough to ponder about the Origin of Life and its purpose. Evidence will be presented for the existence and need for a Creator. Personal evidence, scientific evidence as well as Biblical evidence, see the navigation menu at the right of this page.

Enjoy the reading...

The Purpose of Life
Random or with a reason?

We are here for a reason. God wants every creature to voluntary accepts His invitation to become a member of His big family to share His love and greatness with billions people first here on Earth and thereafter in eternal afterlife. For that purpose He has equipped us:
  1. with a brain to understand His Holy Nature;
  2. with a spirit to communicate with Him (prayer);
  3. with a conscience to understand a keep His Laws;
  4. and last but not least with a free will to make that needed (pro or contra) voluntary choice.
All these 4 qualifications are lacking in animals and make us unique. An ape can never understand the ways of God, but we can. Animals don't have a spirit, I never saw my cat praying. My dog has no conscience, he might look guilty at times with his loyal eyes but that is just a pecking order thing, keyword: submission. Do animals have free will? I am not entirely sure but to me they just act as they are created.

The Need for Jesus Christ

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son [Jesus], that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. [ John 3:16 ]

We can only become a member of God's big family by accepting the work Jesus Christ did for us when He died on the Cross for the forgiveness of our sins and those of the whole world, past, present and future. God can and will only forgive our sins through the work Jesus on the Cross when He paid the price for the sin of all mankind. Else our sins will keep standing between us and God and that will be fatal for us on Judgement Day as Jesus Christ (our Lawyer) will not stand up for us and plea the not guilty through his work on the Cross because we have rejected Him as our Saviour here on Earth. And Hell will be our automatic reward.

Is that not cruel? No, just plain logic. God created us (we are lawfully His property) and He gives us a whole life-time to respond to His invitation to share earthly life and eternal afterlife with Him and if we keep on saying "no" then we shouldn't complain when God gives us exactly what we have chosen, the complete separation from God in afterlife, completely according our own express and explicit wish not willing to deal with Him. We probably wouldn't feel home in heaven anyway. In the end Hell we choose ourselves.

The Choice
How to become a Christian?

That's something entirely between God and us, quite personal also. There are no fixed protocols or rituals to become a beloved child and member of God's family other than a humble state of our mind as expressed in Jeremiah 29:11-13

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

So if you feel God is pulling you take the kneeling position and pray to God with your whole heart in your own chosen words. Content doesn't matter much, the submission of the heart does. And the miracle will happen, the miracle of being born again, not by the will of a human but by the will of God. There is mystery in that, words fail to describe the process God initiates in you deep down inside but eventually you will know that He is God, no more doubts. As promised in the above quoted text taken from God's Word, the Bible. Millions around the Globe can testity Jeremiah 29:11-13 to be a true promise. I am just one of them.

Then reach out to experienced Christians who can tell what happened to you, how to proceed, answer your questions etc. An internet page just can't tell you, life is much to complicated for that. An excellent choice is the New in Christ forum. Over there you will find much better qualified Christians than myself to answer all your questions, and instantly most of the time. Explore and enjoy the new Life God has given you in Christ.

If you want to know more about the hundreds of other fulfilled predictions made in the Bible I found the web-site AboutBibleProphecy.com a very interesting and detailed one.

I can highly recommend the Christian Answer forum as an excellent place for non-Christians to submit whatever question you may have. I am a member myself, username: rebel777. Just subscribe and participate.

May the Lord bless you.
