Chances Are

Chances Are

A series of Lectures given to students from years seven to eleven with one question in mind, What are the Chances that God does not exist?

This being one of the most important  of questions that needs to be asked, particularly as the evolutionary mindset seems to dominate at the most fundamental levels in our society. So what are the actual chances that God does not exist?

You see if God does exist then there are consequences that need to be deeply and even eternally considered, but if God does not exist, then there are also consequences to consider, though not necessarily eternal.

If the God of the Bible is true, and chances are that is the only possibility that we could possibly desire, then heaven and hell are also true. But if, while God exists, we go on living as if he does not exist, how tragic and grave is that error?

This is a vitally important series, but please excuse the relatively light hearted approach in some of the segments, remember that the series was recorded from a large class room, live.

5. The Opportunity

Not only did God create you, he created this universe that you would be. Not only that you would be, but that you might be with him for ever.

Science has scientists, Philosophy has philosophers, Physics has physicists just as any Theory has a theorist. What am I trying to say? All of these professions have people behind them; to think that people are not motivated by their predispositions, (especially personally held ‘beliefs’) and bring those views to their conclusions, particularly when there is SO much at stake, such as the…

3. The Numbers

Numbers, probably the most amazing lie detector accessible. Numbers can tell you many things, not only the outcome of a given equation, but can also advise on profitability or loss. Mastering numbers ensure that you get things right, mastering numbers also ensures that the potential outcome you have considered is realistic. Without numbers we all would be playing a guessing game, whether in accounting or in science, whether in geography or geometry, whether in electricity or mechanics, whether shopping or even running a foot race, numbers will tell us if we have enough to finish what we start. What are the chances God does not exist? What are the chances your eternity is not in imminent danger? Its the question this lecture asks and provides a hint of more to come.

2. The Odds

What are the odds surrounding the existence of life? What are the likely chances that God does not exists and therefore all we see and all that is arose out of a virtual infinite series of lucky draws?
