difference between science and God…

“Let me explain the problem science has with Jesus Christ.” The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand.

“You’re a Christian, aren’t you, son?”

“Yes sir,” the student says.

“So you believe in God?”

“Absolutely.”

“Is God good?”

“Sure! God’s good.”

“Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?”

“Yes.”

“Are you good or evil?”

“The Bible says I’m evil.”

The professor grins knowingly. “Aha! The Bible!” He considers for a
moment.

“Here’s one for you. Let’s say there’s a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?”

“Yes sir, I would.”

“So you’re good…!”

“I wouldn’t say that.”

“But why not say that? You’d help a sick and maimed person if
you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn’t.”

The student does not answer, so the professor continues. “He doesn’t, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even
though he prayed to Jesus to heal him How is this Jesus good? Hmmm? Can you answer that one?”

The student remains silent.

“No, you can’t, can you?” the professor says. He takes a sip of
water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax.

“Let’s start again, young fella Is God good?”

“Er…yes,” the student says.

“Is Satan good?”

The student doesn’t hesitate on this one. “No.”

“Then where does Satan come from?”

The student : “From…God…”

“That’s right. God made Satan, didn’t he? Tell me, son. Is there
evil in this world?”

“Yes, sir.”

“Evil’s everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything,
correct?”

“Yes.”

“So who created evil?” The professor continued, “If God created
everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil.”

Without allowing the student to answer, the professor continues:
“Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible
things, do they exist in this world?”

The student: “Yes.”

“So who created them?”

The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his
question. “Who created them? There is still no answer. Suddenly the
lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is
mesmerized.

“Tell me,” he continues onto another student. “Do you believe in
Jesus Christ, son?”

The student’s voice is confident: “Yes, professor, I do.”

The old man stops pacing. “Science says you have five senses you
use to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen
Jesus?”

“No sir. I’ve never seen Him”

“Then tell us if you’ve ever heard your Jesus?”

“No, sir, I have not.”

“Have you ever actually felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or
smelt your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus
Christ, or God for that matter?”

“No, sir, I’m afraid I haven’t.”

“Yet you still believe in him?”

“Yes.”

“According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable
protocol, science says your God doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?”

“Nothing,” the student replies. “I only have my faith.”

“Yes, faith,” the professor repeats. “And that is the problem
science has with God. There is no evidence, only faith.”

The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a
question of his own. “Professor, is there such thing as heat?”

“Yes,” the professor replies. “There’s heat.”

“And is there such a thing as cold?”

“Yes, son, there’s cold too.”

“No sir, there isn’t.”

The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested.
The room suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain.

“You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat,
mega-heat, unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don’t have anything called ‘cold’. We can hit up to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest -458 degrees. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat. You see, sir, cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.”

Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom,
sounding like a hammer.

“What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as
darkness?”

“Yes,” the professor replies without hesitation. “What is night
if it isn’t darkness?”

“You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the
absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright
light, flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have
Nothing and it’s called darkness, isn’t it? That’s the meaning we use to define the word. In reality, darkness isn’t. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?”

The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him.
This will be a good semester. “So what point are you making, young man?”

“Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is
flawed to start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed.”

The professor’s face cannot hide his surprise this time.
“Flawed? Can you explain how?”

“You are working on the premise of duality,” the student
explains. “You argue that there is life and then there’s death; a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it.”

“Now tell me, professor. Do you teach your students that they
evolved from a monkey?”

“If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young
man, yes, of course I do”

“Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?”

The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he
realizes where the argument is going. A very good semester, indeed.

“Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work
and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher?”

The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the
Commotion has subsided.

“To continue the point you were making earlier to the other
student, let me give you an example of what I mean.”

The student looks around the room. “Is there anyone in the class
who has ever seen the professor’s brain?” The class breaks out into
laughter.

“Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor’s brain,
felt the professor’s brain, touched or smelled the professor’s brain? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, with all due respect, sir. So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?”

Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the
student, his face unreadable.

Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers. “I
guess you’ll have to take them on faith.”

“Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists
with life,” the student continues. “Now, sir, is there such a thing as evil?”

Now uncertain, the professor responds, “Of course, there is. We
see it everyday. It is in the daily example of man’s inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil.”

To this the student replied, “Evil does not exist sir, or at
least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God.

God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when
man does not have God’s love present in his heart. It’s like the cold
that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light.”

The professor sat down.

MAGBAGO ka KAPATID!!!

Let God transform you. (Romans 12:2 GNT)

Change only happens when you:
1) Decide to change! A newspaper asked people to answer the question: ‘What’s wrong with the world’ and someone wrote back “I am”!! Good answer! It’s true. If God kicked every person in the butt who was responsible for messing up the world nobody would be able to sit down for a week!!

2) Change the way you think! The Bible says “let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think” (Romans 12:2 NLT) The way you think affects the way you feel and the way you feel affects the way you act. When you’re thinking God thoughts you’ll act the way he wants you to. Here’s a tip – get into the bible…that’s the best way to change your thinking!

3) Take a small step everyday! We think change is gonna happen overnight… it won’t! It happens slowly. For change to work start with small things but do them everyday. And don’t get discouraged when you mess up. We all stumble about like Bambi when we’re trying to change. Read this, “there has never been a doubt in my mind that God who started this great work in you (change) would keep at it and bring to a flourishing (fancy word) finish on the very day Jesus appears” (Philippians 1:6 The Message). And don’t forget, God is there to help you.

God smiles when we trust

By faith, Noah built a ship in the middle of dry land. He was warned about something he couldn’t see, and acted on what he was told. . . . As a result, Noah became intimate with God. Hebrews 11:7 (MSG)

Imagine this scene:

One day God comes to Noah and says, “I’m disappointed in human beings. In the entire world, no one but you thinks about me. But Noah, when I look at you, I start smiling. I’m pleased with your life, so I’m going to flood the world and start over with you and your family. I want you to build a giant ship that will save you and the animals.”

There were three problems that could have caused Noah to doubt:

Image and video hosting by TinyPicFirst, Noah had never seen rain because prior to the flood God irrigated the earth from the ground up (Genesis 2:5-6).
Image and video hosting by TinyPicSecond, Noah lived hundreds of miles from the nearest ocean. Even if he could learn to build a ship, how would he get it to water?
Image and video hosting by TinyPicThird, there was the problem of rounding up all the animals and then caring for them.

But Noah didn’t complain or make excuses. He trusted God completely, and that made God smile. Photobucket

Trusting God completely means having faith that God knows what is best for your life. You expect him to keep his promises, help you with problems, and do the impossible when necessary.
The Bible says, “He takes pleasure in those who honor him, in those who trust in his constant love” (Psalm 147:11 TEV).
It took Noah 120 years to build the ark. I imagine he faced many discouraging days. With no sign of rain year after year, he was probably criticized as a “crazy man who thinks God speaks to him.” I imagine Noah’s children were often embarrassed by the giant ship being built in their front yard.
Yet Noah kept on trusting God.
In what areas of your life do you need to trust God completely?

Trusting is an act of worship.
Just as parents are pleased when children trust them, your faith makes God happy.

The Bible says, “Without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6 NIV).Photobucket

BEAUTY TIPS

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through
it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed,
revived reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anybody.

Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one
at the end of your arm.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands,
one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the
figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because
that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty
in a woman is reflected in her soul.

It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that
she shows, and the beauty of a woman with
passing years -only grows!
