No excuses

I understand that there are many stories in the Bible that are quite far-fetched. Many things we believe about Jesus being born of a virgin, dying for the forgiveness of the sins of all men, and living eternally at the right hand of the Father are pretty fairy tale-ish. The story even "ends" with a happily ever after "ending." (That's not to say that I don't believe those stories, but I'll "give you" that one.) One thing I have NEVER understood, though, is how people can possibly explain any aspects of creation without a Creator. One of the largest arrows that seems to point people to the amazement of creation is the birth of a child. A living, breathing human being coming from "simply" a fertilized egg. I have personally experienced it 3 times and will soon have the privilege of experiencing it for a fourth time, and I agree.....Absolutely amazing! (and only possible in my mind with the explanation of there being an Almighty, omnipotent Creator)

Well, over the past couple weeks, I have experienced another miracle of creation with the boys. Something coming from a fertilized egg...and we had the privilege of witnessing the transformation first hand. So those of you who have never experienced childbirth firsthand, go buy a butterfly kit and prepare to be amazed...because it's true, you are without excuse!!


"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." Romans 1:20
