It is often said that Numbers Don’t Lie. In this lecture we will find this to be very telling.
If you would not bet your life on a 1 in 2 chance (the flip of a coin), would you make that bet if the numbers against your survival were greater?
This study will show how quickly the numbers can stack up, it will show that, if you were a betting man, you would be the greatest of fools not to take your life more seriously, as you consider the impossibility of surviving the cast of an almost infinite number of accidental coincidences that lead to the existence of a universe containing life by nothing other than chance.
It does not seem like a big bet, but when you are speaking about eternity and when we are concluding that a lake of fire is the possible end of your mortal life as the true judgment of God for sin, then the chances of your existence without the hand of a purposeful creator is all the more sobering.
If there was only one chance in 8,145,060 of you not having to face the judgement of God after death, would you play?
If God exists, then you are part of all he created. If you are created, then you were created for a purpose, and if you were created for a purpose you will be held accountable. Friends, if God exists then this is not a game you have the option not to play.
The Bible makes clear that;
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)
But that does not infer a no win situation. Though all have sinned;
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)
Its the reason he sent his only begotten Son, to seek and to save that which is lost. The world is lost, it has no wisdom to discern the danger it is in, not even considering the size of the numbers it needs to contend with, for the odds that this entire universe came into existence by chance.
It is said that Mathematical Probability Theory reckons odds greater than 1:10 to the power of 50 is beyond all possibility of success, (Keeping in mind that it has been calculated that there are only 10 to the 60th number of Atoms in the universe) what than do you do with odds 1,000 times greater?
Chances Are, God not only exists, but that you were created for a purpose.
Lord bless you in your diligent search for who he is.
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:13)
