I am really sorry John to interject. I care for you and for folks like yourself and so i feel compelled to put out an explanation to your reasoning.
If you were to ask 100 children if they thought that the earth, life forms, families etc just popped into existence out of thin air, 99 of them would typically laugh at the silliness of such a proposition. They would typically point to Creator God. They are right! It takes these children growing into adults who tend towards pride, self reliance, and all sorts of psychological tools in themselves to hamper the initial childlike understanding.
Jesus himself says let the children come to me as heaven belongs to such as these…you see, faith in God is not normally found in our loaded intellectual pursuits but rather in just childlike acceptance where one lays down the complications of preconceived notions and attitudes and chooses to just place faith in the God whom they know created the cosmos.
There are so many Scriptures about this…one of which where Paul says “Jews look for signs and Gentiles seek wisdom.” He relays instead the importance of rather childlike faith in Jesus saving us by the cross.
The sincerity and counter cultural ideas here make this true in my mind. Marketing agents waft greed for money and the desire for notariety in sellling goods and services. The gospel spins this on its head.
I encourage you to read 1 Cor chapter 1, if you truly have interest to learn Christian theology. The transformative and transcendent beauty of such passages bring me goosebumps. If you are looking for a miracle, passages like this is the miracle you are looking for and the gospel power that took my miserable existence in college and transformed me blows my mind… even this week, as i have been on vacation and actually took time to remember the way i used to be! As i thought on these, i was almost embarrased over myself! But God is so good. He is the Creator responsible for the beginning of the universe. And He cares for us all on an individual basis and true wisdom seeks Him and finds Him as i did as a college sophomore and my sin has been taken away as far as the east is from the west!
Off we go to play putt putt. Catch up later if you have further inquiry…otherwise i hope others will answer with Biblical wisdom! His Blessings to you!
