FORSTER DISTRICT BAPTIST
Periodically our Church
runs special programs that attempt to make sharing our love and faith with our
neighbours and our community easier.
It was a long time ago
that Benjamin Franklin penned
“It is indisputable that God loves us and wants
to make us happy.”
So much has changed
since that time, but GOD has not.
He still exists, in
fact he never went away.
He still loves us and
He still wants you to
find him, he has not hidden himself away
He still wants to love
He still wants to share
his happiness with you.
Today we can
be blinded to seeing GOD by
Some short sighted
Big Bang Theory, String
Theory with Multi-dimensional Universes, even Darwin’s Theory of
Evolution are just that, theories.
may be true, but they are only observing the effects not the cause of creation. Above all there is no
scientific proof that God does not exist.
Weather you believe
there is no God or you believe that God is real you are expressing a faith not
a scientific fact. Even Atheists therefore
are people of faith, they believe that there is no God despite any scientific proof.
God is not
anti-science, He is revealing more of himself and his creation in every
scientific discovery. Remember many scientists
still believe in God.
Other events also can close our mind to looking for and finding our creator.
Our own pride or
wisdom, it is easy to think that belief is only for the feeble minded, we think that we are too smart to
have to believe in God.
Voltaire, one of the most significant of the philosophers of the Great Enlightment wrote
"What is faith? Is it to believe that which is evident? No. It is perfectly evident to my mind that there exists a necessary, eternal, supreme, and intelligent being. This is no matter of faith, but of reason.
Personal issues we face can also cloud or willingness to consider the utility of having a personal faith. Our own busyness, wealth
or personal success, we got where we are without GOD so we think that we can do
Our Anger our Grief or
feelings of loss,
“If there is a GOD why
would he make this happen to me?”
This image of GOD that
he is responsible for everything (bad) that happens to me is the exact opposite
of the myth above.
Neither of which are true
GOD does not promise
to make us all healthy, wealthy and wise nor does he make us sick, poor and
He just wants to share HIS love with us.
you have any of these issues we have some
that we would like to share with you.
