Why Believe?
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

Pastor Cecil Thompson
Cecil Thompson

2 Corinthians 5:7-9

"We live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it."

I want to make it plain at the outset that I am a creationist. I believe God's Word when it says that it was God who created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. How did He do it? By the power of His mighty Word!

My faith is based on the infallible Word of God. I made a choice long ago to make the Lord Jesus Christ the Lord of my life. I accept His Word and if He opens new vistas of understanding, I am eager to receive them. Many things I do not understand, but I know that He is the blessed controller of all things!

Evolutionists have had a hard time of it. Over the years of my life they have tried over and over again to prove their theory. To believe in evolutionism requires more faith than I could ever muster. Yes, faith is required regardless of our response to the accuracy of God's Word.

Scientists have been repeatedly forced to conceive or contrive new theories to substantiate their position. They try to say that man is nothing more than an accident of millions of years evolving from a rock to a human. I just do not have enough faith to believe that religion.

Hebrews 11:1 says it all for me and that is where I take my stand: "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
