Magnificence of Nature is Proof of God
September 3, 2012
I remember one afternoon, I was looking up at the sky and there were two rainbows overlapping each other, and a man I didn't even know turned around to me and said: "Who says there's no God?"
The beauty of the event was overwhelming and everyone who noticed completely enjoyed the view. We can't see God, but we see the evidence of his existence through his creation. We can't see the air, but we feel it going through our lungs. We can't see the wind, but we can watch its effect on the trees and the environment. We see the sun, the moon, and the stars make their circle and the beauty of outer space is indescribable. Everything looks good.
I do a lot of hiking in the mountains. If I look at a tree or a flower, the view of it is beautiful from every angle. How is it that this is so? Did it happen by accident? Did the flower evolve from some kind of unorganized scum?
The sun and the moon do not fight for position, they do exactly what God told them to do, and they do it perfectly every day. Water provides refreshment for the whole earth, the beasts, and the plants. It feeds the crops, provides for the necessities of life itself. The earth gives up her fruit, and provides a home for all of mankind, beasts and plants. We all have plenty of air to breath, food to eat, and all of nature serves mankind for his benefit. Just looking at it makes a person feel good.
I've always noticed how animals seem to be able to stay in their own natural order. They choose their actions too; but they will usually stay within their own proper boundaries. Why can animals, but people can't?
For many people the sexual act is an end to itself. With men and women, sexual activity should be within the context of the natural order which is a lawful marriage.
Animals do not get married, but they do manage to stay within the natural order. You don't see animals acting like Hollywood sluts. But the problem is that our culture has provided too many opportunities for casual sex and it is at the center of our failure as a society and as a people.
Government and religions have helped this along with their insane doctrines of death.
"The heavens, revolving under His government, are subject to Him in peace. Day and night run the course appointed by Him, in no way hindering each other. The sun and moon, with the companies of stars, roll on in harmony according to His command, within their prescribed limits, without any deviation. The fruitful earth, according to His will, brings forth food in abundance. At the proper seasons, for man and beast and all the living beings upon it. Never hesitating, nor changing any of the ordinances which He has fixed. "
We should be focusing our minds upon this and letting go of the brain-rot of today's culture. There are too many good things that God created for us to enjoy, and it is worth our while to just turn away from evil and enjoy the life that God gave us.

Makow comment - We are part of the miracle of Creation. Every time I take a walk in nature, savor a fruit or drink pure water, I marvel at God's bounty and generosity. I can't understand those who deny the existence of God, except to say they desire to take his place. We were put here to enact God's plan. Atheists/satanists obviously have their own plan, the NEW WORLD ORDER.
Yes nature can be cruel. That is why man also was given a moral order to govern his affairs.
