IMAGINE YOU’RE SITTING in your living room, enjoying a peaceful afternoon while reading the paper.
Suddenly, a baseball flies into the room, shattering your window.
Obviously, your first question wouldn’t be, “How did it get here?”
It would be, in a highly bothered tone, “Who did this?!”
The baseball didn’t just smash through your window for no reason.
Some agent acted upon it, causing a “disturbance in the force” that ruined your perfectly good afternoon.
The universe couldn’t have just “arrived” without a force behind it. And unlike the remote possibility that a pitching machine spat a baseball into your living room instead of an actual person, it’s impossible that a universe was just spat out by an inanimate force. It took a Person, a Someone. Holding the Bible at its word, we Christians believe that Someone to be God, the Great Cause (Alex McFarland).
“This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens” (Gen. 2:4).
