From Sherly's Desk...

No, Johnny it is not true, I do not believe on God, devil, demons, angels etc.  Manoj gave stress to his words and said, listen, all these things are just hallucination and there is no evidence for it.  Science does not prove these things, why believe on something we can not prove?  Johnny, who was still shaken with the thoughts of his chilling experience of hell, took deep breath, closed his eyes and prayed, Jesus please help me to tell the truth about you.  It was his first day in school after recovering from his injuries.   

Johnny said to Manoj, OK you do not believe in God and other stuff but believe in science.  Let me start with human body.  Did you ever think that how complex human body is?  Every tiny cell that is not visible with our naked eyes contains whole genetic information of the person.  Every person's DNA is unique.  Movements of your body, cells are differently programmed to their particular functions.  For example if you want to move your figures, there are hundreds and thousands of cells that does the job.  And if you want to close your eyelids or move your eyebrow, the cells are differently programmed.  Only a small alteration can cause it dysfunction. 

Brain is very small part of human body but it stores tons of data with color images in it.  Brain is sharper than any sophisticated computers. You can recall the things that took place many years ago within split seconds. And more than that with all our modern technology our scientists are unable to produce (create from scratch) the same kind of model or any living being.  I am not talking about cloning or genetically identical copy of existing creation.  I am talking about creating from scratch.  Life is a mystery to our scientist. 

Now my question is how this complex structure came in existence?  Who designed it?  Do you think without a designer human being came in this planet?  If there is no powerful designer then the question is how this complex organization could assemble itself? 

Not only that but take the example of earth sun and moon.  Sun and moon's distance from earth is so precise and so accurate that if sun comes little nearer, it will consume the whole earth with extensive heat.  And if sun goes little far away then life is not possible on earth it will freeze you to death.  How is it possible that without a designer sun, moon and earth are in perfect position?

How you will explain those migrating birds or animals who migrates to thousands of miles from their homeland. They usually follow well-established routes and goes to the same place every year.  Again they return to the same place from where they migrated.  Scientists are still puzzled to figure out what is the mystery behind their migration.  Even they lay eggs and come back without their young ones but the young ones grew up and follows the same path of their parents and return to their homeland.  How they know the route?  With all our maps and modern equipments, many a times we lose the way. 

Now the question is does God exists?  Let me take the few things from the Bible and show you whether God exists or not?  If you read the Bible, you will see a relationship between God and human being.  There are many people in the Bible who had direct contact with God.  They spoke to God, they saw God.  And even many see today in this modern age.  Why? Because yes, there is a God who is the designer and creator of universe. 

Not only people have seen God but had contact with God.  Bible prophecies has fulfilled in past and today also are fulfilling as it is.  In the book of Daniel, 9th chapter talks about the Messiah's death and gives the time period.  And the history shows that Messiah (Jesus) was crucified in the same year.  How it is possible that Daniel could prophecy so accurately about the timings of crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  I am quoting those verses here.

Dan 9:25  "Know therefore and understand, That from the going forth of the command To restore and build Jerusalem Until Messiah the Prince, There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, Even in troublesome times.

Dan 9:26  "And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined.

------------------Bible study notes for the above verse----------------

From the time of the decree to restore and build Jerusalem until the coming of the Messiah would be 7 weeks (49 years) plus 62 weeks (434 years), yielding 69 weeks or 483 years, all but 7 of the 490 years involved in the 70 weeks. Note the following table:

    605 B.C. Nebuchadnezzar took the first captives from Jerusalem.
586 B.C. The destruction of Solomon's temple.
539 B.C. The taking of Babylon and Daniel's visitation by Gabriel.
538 B.C. The decree of Cyrus for the return of the Jews.
516 B.C. The completion of the second temple.
457 B.C. The decree of Artaxerxes to establish worship and law in Judah (cf. Ezra 7:13-16).
444 B.C. The decree of Artaxerxes to restore and rebuild Jerusalem (cf. Neh. 2:1-8).
4 B.C. The birth of our Lord.
33 A.D. The crucifixion of Christ.

Calculating from 444 B.C. to A.D. 33, one arrives at 478 years rather than the 483 years required. However, this is due to our reckonings, which are based upon the solar year of the Gregorian calendar of 365 days; whereas the Jewish calendar was based upon lunar years of 360 days. This is clearly seen in the account of the Flood, which lasted five months or 150 days (Gen. 7:11, 24; 8:3, 4). When the two calendars are adjusted, and one must do so for accuracy, a difference of about eight years will be discovered. Allowing an additional year for the transition from 1 B.C. to A.D. 1, the date of 33 A.D. is the date at the end of the sixty-ninth week, when Christ entered Jerusalem and was welcomed as King.

---------------end of quote---------

Not only that Bible contains many advanced technology information like Nuclear bomb in Zechariah 14:12, "And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths."

And Modern Vehicle in Nahum 2:4  The chariots rage in the streets, They jostle one another in the broad roads; They seem like torches, They run like lightning.

Even the book of Daniel talks about EU (European Union), one world Govt., Mark of the beast that is described in

Rev 13:16-17, "He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."

And most probably it would be a computer chip that is only applied in hand or on forehead.  These types of chips are already in the market.

These books of Bible were written many thousands of years ago when they had no chance to even imagine all these things.  I can go on and on and tell you more but let me stop here! 

Johnny looked at the face of Manoj and saw him thinking something.  What are you thinking, Johnny asked?  Well, I am thinking if you are right then it means there should be a designer who created the whole world... it means there should be some supreme being who made our complex body... umm.. let us go, its too late.. our parents may be worrying about us.  I will think more on this topic.. Thanks Johnny for helping me to think more on this topic.  By saying this Manoj bade goodbye to Johnny.
