Am I here by chance—for no particular purpose—or did a great God create mankind for an important destiny?
The question of whether God really exists perplexes many people. For some the question is too perplexing and they put it on the backburner. Philosophers have tried to answer the major questions about mankind's existence and place in the universe. But most have taken the approach that there is no God and that the universe came from nothing, and that life evolved from inert matter.
The late British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, author of A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes, when considering some of these vital questions observed that, We find ourselves in a bewildering world. We want to make sense of what we see around us and to ask: What is the nature of the universe? What is our place in it and where did it and we come from? (1988, p. 171).
British historian Paul Johnson recently wrote A History of the Jews. Within its pages he, too, asks some of humanity's most important questions, What are we on earth for? Is history merely a series of events whose sum is meaningless? ... Or is there a providential plan...? (1997, p. 2).
We can find the answers to these questions.
Irrefutable evidence of God's existence is available.
