A REASON WHY
by H. Witmyer
Let’s imagine for awhile, and suppose that there is no God. That
would mean that evolution is absolutely true. Life started when certain
chemicals came together in just the right situation and life started. It was an
accident, it wasn’t planned, it had no real purpose, it just happened by chance.
People who research evolution seek one main thing, to prove
that it is true. I don’t find much written on how it happened, just that it did. As of
now I don’t see anyone coming up with a mechanism of how evolution works.
Mutation of genes cannot explain all the different kinds of life with all the new
information needed. Natural selection doesn’t explain it either, because it works
within the same kinds of animals. A horse is still a horse, a dog is still a dog and
The other thing I don’t hear much about is why there is life. Life
has a strong force within itself to promote more and more life. This not only
keeps it going, but causes it to spread. Of all the planets that have been
checked, Mars included, we have found no sign of life.
In Holland I read that 30 percent of the deaths there are without the
persons consent, we call it euthanasia, but it is just plain murder. It seems that
the Dutch have learned real well from the Nazi's. They had it down to a science
with their murder factories. Is this a good thing? By evolution standards it’s just
the survival of the fittest. If we feel that a person is useless for on reason or the
other just kill them.
If we are here because of an accident in some chemicals, then
there is no right or wrong. The strongest people make up the rules and the rest
follow. What you think is right, I may not think is right at all, this leads to chaos.
Life goes on in a endless chain, birth, growth, death. We are just
one link in this chain that goes on with no reason, remember life is all an
Is it any wonder that the number of people who are killing
themselves is growing. Now we read that even our soldiers are killing
themselves. With this kind of thinking can we give to someone a reason for not
killing themselves, if their lives are too painful to bear. Death seems like the
easy way out.
Some will say” We must make a the best of life and try to be happy.
Many say that “things” make life worthwhile. Some will give other reasons.
There are people who get closer to a real reason for life when they say it is
helping the weak and hurting, but this goes against evolution that puts down the
weak, that the strong may go on. None of these things give a reason for life in
The only one who can explain to us the real reason for life is
God. He tells us that He put life on this earth. He made us for a purpose.
Isaiah 45:18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself
that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in
vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
God goes on to explain to us how and why He made life and
what He expects from it.
Psalm 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man,
that thou visitest him?
5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him
with glory and honour.
6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou
hast put all things under his feet:
Psalm 39:4 LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my
days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.
5 Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as
nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity.
6 Surely every man walketh in a vain show: surely they are disquieted in vain:
he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.
7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
Psalm 100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with
3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we
ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Psalm 119:73 Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me
understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
We can see that God made us for a purpose, that purpose
is to become like God and live with Him in perfect fellowship forever. God loves
man that He made so much, that he wants to be with those who love Him
Isaiah 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose
name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a
contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the
heart of the contrite ones.
Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first
heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of
heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of
God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his
people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be
no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any
more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he
said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
THAT IS THE REASON WHY!
