Creation or Chance

Did the limitless heavens, this vast globe we call “earth,” and the amazing diversities of life upon it, come merely by chance or caprice? Are the complexities of life a mere whim of fate — or is there some real purpose behind existence?

God’s purpose with mankind proved by the wonder of the universe.
A vast change has come over the world in the last hundred years. Prior to 1914, the tempo of life was far more leisurely; motor cars were few and inefficient; airplanes were flimsy affairs that inspired little confidence; electricity was still largely in its infancy. And morally, the world was still governed by the standards and conventions of the Victorian Age.

A vast change has come over the world in the last ninety years. Prior to 1914, the tempo of life was far more leisurely; motor cars were few and inefficient; airplanes were flimsy affairs that inspired little confidence; electricity was still largely in its infancy. And morally, the world was still governed by the standards and conventions of the Victorian Age.

The first World War brought great changes. It introduced a period of great inventiveness when, in the words of Bible prophecy, “knowledge was increased” (Daniel 12:4). Speed came into its own; the use of electricity was developed; radio became more than a mere toy. On the battlefields, millions died as mighty armies became locked in terrible death-struggles; and, in the widespread catastrophe, conventions were thrown to the winds, and morals were measured by new standards. In view of the remarkable developments of technology, and the widening influence of information, people began to doubt the existence of God as theories of evolution and “natural development” were exploited.

Reading the Bible with understanding

Do you believe that the Bible is true? Do you believe that it is full of fairytales? Or are you indifferent about it? Whatever you believe, there is no denying that the Bible is a book of tremendous influence. In fact, three of the world’s prominent religions claim to be connected in some way to the Bible. According to the online query tool Wolfram Alpha, the combined number of adherents to Christianity, Islam and Judaism makes up a little over half of the entire population of this planet! That means that half the people on the earth are in some way associated with the Bible.

However, even though the Bible is one of the most influential books of all time, so many people don’t even know what it says. Even people who believe the Bible can be shockingly ignorant of what is contained within its pages. I’ll admit though, understanding the Bible can be a daunting task, and it’s not for the faint of heart. I know if I were trying to understand the Bible for the first time I would need a ton of help (and I’m not exaggerating!). That’s why we are offering a free 7 week introductory course on the Bible. If you do not know much about the Bible, but want to know more, why not go to bible seminars.ca and register for this course. It will make a world of difference to your understanding of this wonderful book!
