Have you ever just stopped and watched a child play? Have you ever told a Bible story and sat back in amazement at how much that child retains and is then able to cite back to you? What about asking a child simple question, “Who made us?”
If your answer to any of these was no, then I encourage you to try it. Experience faith and trust of a child through their eyes. I have 3 boys, ages 7, 4, and 5 months and I daily ask them, “Who made you” or “Where did trees come from?” My 4 year old, right away chimes in with, “God of course silly.” My 7 year old simply points to heavens.
They don’t question anything or doubt what they hear from their parents or from Bible. They accept it by faith and it’s this very faith that Jesus praises them for in Mark 10:13-15. In verse 15 he says, “I assure you, anyone who doesn't have their kind of faith will never get into Kingdom of God."
Somehow as we get older we complicate what was designed to be so simple. We become a doubting Thomas. Even though Thomas had walked with Christ for 3 years and had seen hundreds if not thousands of miracles, he doubted. He doubted very words of Jesus and could not see how a man, who had healed blind, fed thousands, turned water into wine, walked on water, and even brought several people back from dead, as being able to return from dead himself.
All of a sudden we need to see proof of creation, we need to see proof that Bible tells truth about how old earth is, and all of a sudden we too ask to touch nail pierced hands and feet. Why do we complicate it?
The Bible says that because of sin we have became twisted and everything on this earth is twisted. Our very thoughts and concepts have been twisted by sin. Man’s fallible ideas about where we came from and origins of universe are designed to give man, not God, glory. We just happened, something took place to start Big Bang, and we created ourselves, all of these are thoughts twisted because of sin.
Put all of parts and pieces of a cell phone into a zip-lock bag and start shaking it up. After a few minutes of shaking it up, pour everything out and see what you get. Did you get a complete cell-phone capable of making a phone call or just a large pile of debris? Now invite one of your kids over and tell them that if you continue this process long enough (millions of years) you will eventually get a complete working cell-phone. What do you think their response is going to be? Do you think they will believe you? Of course not and most people can see that this idea is flawed. A cell-phone is a complicated piece of equipment that requires someone to design and put pieces together in right order if it is to function way it is supposed to, just like life here one earth. Yet evolution would have you believe that given enough time, this machine would build itself in right order and sequence.
