Which Makes Better Sense?

By Don Loftis | 02.12.14

While cleaning up his late grandfather’s room, a young man discovered a box containing an expensive Swiss watch.  When he showed it to the rest of the family, they asked where he thought it came from.  He replied, “I think it just happened.”  Responding to their suspicions, he added, “Yeah, I bet some old metal parts simply got inside this box and they accidentally through the years formed this watch.”

We live in a world that is far more complicated than a watch.  We measure the magnitude of the universe in light years and only guess at what lies beyond the view of our finest telescopes.  We encounter intricacies of cell structure that challenge our strongest microscopes.  And in all of this, the order of our world allows us to produce the periodic chart of elements and to identify, to the second, every sunrise and sunset.

Is it reasonable that all we see and experience came about by chance?  The reality of design does demand the existence of a designer.

Such an approach to Christian evidences does answer every question regarding God’s nature, character or location.  However, it does give us a glimpse into His power and His extensive creativity.  We must never forget Paul’s words in Romans 1:20, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.”

Chance or Creator — which really makes more sense?
