The Evidence of Cosmology

I think it’s important to ask – is there a God? That’s a legitimate question to ask, don’t you think? Most people used to say that’s just a theological question because to believe in God, you’ve got to take this blind leap of faith because there is no scientific evidence. You’ve got to sort of throw scientific reasoning out the window and commit intellectual suicide to believe in God. But, two instruments over the last half-century have changed all that and helped us see powerful evidence for the existence of God – the telescope and the microscope. With our new high-powered telescopes, we’ve been able to see into the Heavens like never before. There is so much evidence now in astronomy that points to the hand of God, but I want to focus on just one part of the evidence today from astronomy. The evidence of Cosmology.

Cosmology is the study of the origin of the universe. The Bible has always told us that the Heavens have so much to say about God. But the stars are always talking to us about their Creator. Check out Psalm 19. “The Heavens are telling the glory of God; they are a marvelous display of His craftsmanship.”

The evidence is so clear, but some people still don’t want to believe it. I think it’s because they have to deal with the ramifications. If there is a God, then there is a God who I am accountable to, and then I have to live my life in a way that’s accountable to Him. Some people don’t want to be accountable to anyone. It just makes sense to them not to believe in God, even though the evidence is pointing to Him over and over and over again in each one of our cells.

In what ways are you being pointed to the God of the universe?
