Scientific Evidence of God
~ By David Sorensen
Is there scientific proof of God or does science prove God does not exist?
Secular media and education want you to believe there is no scientific proof of God. But the reality is science provides a lot of evidence for the existence of God. Although we have been told that faith in God and science can’t go hand in hand, the truth is they are closely intertwined with each other. Science supports the existence of God and God encourages the development of science. Science and God are close companions! Thousands of scientists today are passionate believers in God. They say science points them toward God and God helps them practice good science. As Albert Einstein said:
‘Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.’
What is the scientific method?
Scientific evidence is obtained using the ‘scientific method’. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the scientific method: ‘…consists in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses.’ So the scientific method takes the following steps:
The question is: can we use the scientific method to obtain evidence for the existence of God?
If God exists, then he is beyond doubt the most powerful reality there is, since he created the entire universe. Obviously it should not be hard to prove the existence of the most powerful reality there is, right? Indeed, you are about to see there is strong scientific proof of God, obtained by using the scientific method of observation, measurement, experiment, formulation and testing.
The scientific proof of God
The main characteristic of God is, that he is the creator of the universe and all living organisms. Every living organism consists of many COMPLEX, FUNCTIONING SYSTEMS. For example our eyes, brains, digestive system, nervous system, our blood circulation, skin, lungs, kidneys, and so on. The human body consists of thousands of COMPLEX, FUNCTIONING SYSTEMS, that operate perfectly.
What does science show us about the origination of complex functional systems? Can they arise WITHOUT the influence of external intelligence? Or does science prove that a complex functioning system REQUIRES an external intelligence? We will apply the scientific method to find an answer to this question.
OBSERVATION shows us that no complex functional system ever arises without the help of external intelligence. Whether it is a watch, a computer, a car or a smartphone, every and all complex and functioning systems always require external intelligence to arise. Thousands of years of observation by the human race, shows us that a complex functioning system never arises without the influence of external intelligence.
MEASURING reveals that this external intelligence is required in every step of the building process of a complex functional system. Without the ongoing guidance of the external intelligence, the creation of the functional system is interrupted and corrupted.
EXPERIMENTS all have the same outcome: no complex functional system ever originates without the continual guidance of an external intelligence.
So we FORMULATE the hypothesis that no complex functional system will ever arise without the ongoing guidance, from beginning to end, of an external intelligence. The external intelligence has to imagine the system, gathers the different elements to build it, these elements must be exactly right in size, weight and material, and he then fits them together in orde to make the system function.
We can MODIFY our tests as much as we want, to see if the outcome will be different. But thousands of years of experience shows us that for the creation of complex functional systems there is always an external intelligence required.
What we also observe and measure, is that the more complex a system is, the more external intelligence is required to create it.
A little child has enough intelligence to build a toy car that can move when the child pushes it forward. But it can’t build a real car with an engine and electric circuits. That requires more intelligence. So observation, measuring, experimenting and testing also shows that a higher level of complexity within the functioning system, requires more external intelligence to create it.
Humans have enough intelligence to create dead machines, like watches, computers, cars, and so on. These machines perform several tasks. But they are limited. They for example can’t duplicate themselves, they can’t grow, and so on. These functions require systems of a complexity that demand a level of intelligence that exceeds the human capabilities. Nature consists of millions of complex functioning systems that not only can look, hear, communicate, run, fly or swim – they can also heal when damaged, they can grow, they can multiply themselves, and so on. Again: these functions require much more intelligence than the human mind possesses.

Reign with Christ!
Every good thing in our western society is the direct result of God's reign, that has come on the earth.
Every bad thing in the western world, is because of people turning away again from God, returning to selfishness and idolatry.
The more God's reign will spread, the more sin, sickness and suffering will be driven out and the more peace, well being and health will spread.
We are called to work with Christ spreading His reign of love, life and restoration to mankind.
We are not called to look at wickedness and complain about how bad the world is.
We are called to work along with Christ, to bring His reign everywhere.
Cast out the darkness, bring people back into intimacy with God, bring healing, care for the poor, invent solutions for human suffering, stop unrighteousness in the government and business world, and bring Christ's righteousness.
That is the answer to suffering in the world. The more christians will operate in the power and authority of Jesus Christ to heal the sick, and drive out evil spirits from people, the more healing and freedom will spread.
The more christians ask God for His solutions to worldwide problems, the more His goodness will spread.
The more christians will bring the light of Christ into every sphere of society, the more His peace will penetrate our world.
God is dreaming beautiful dreams to restore mankind and His creation back to Himself.
He created this beautiful world for His glory and for us to enjoy abundantly.
He created precious mankind to know Him intimately and live in His presence of love.
He created us to be His best friends and to reign along with Him on this amazingly beautiful planet, bringing it back to God's purposes.
That is the good news, the wonderful gospel of the kingdom of God.
That is the message of Jesus Christ.
He is the answer to the suffering in the world.
Live in Jesus Christ, surrender to His Holy Spirit, and begin to spread His love, healing and salvation to others.

Fire in the Church!
There was this woman who came to the convention with a group of friends. But she soon disappeared and started calling one of her friends from the gate of the church to bring her bag. Wondering what was going on, her friend asked, “Why? Where are you going? We are here for the convention.”
She said, “No, I’m not staying there . I am going home.”
“If you are going home then come and pick up your bag by yourself,” her friend told her.
She said, “No, I cannot come.”
The friend asked, “Why not?”
She said, “Fire is burning in there.”

When Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye Was Visited By Two ‘Pythons’
In my first or second year of the ministry, I had a dream in which God revealed to me two big pythons - one yellow, the other black. The yellow python was beautiful with polka dots. The other was smooth and sinister-looking. God said to me, “Two women will be visiting you today in the office. They are both pythons, get ready for them.
I said, “Fine.”
As the elders say, if God shows you your enemy, they can no longer harm you. So when the first woman arrived in the outer office, God said, “Number one has come.”
When I saw her, I knew she was the first pythons I had seen. I knew she would not harm me and her visit passed off peacefully. Similarly when the next woman arrived, the Lord revealed to me she was the second python She almost took me by surprise. As soon as my secretary opened the door for her, she came straight towards me, trying to kiss me. But I was ready for her. I pushed her away. Now supposed I hadn’t known she was coming, I would have kissed a snake!

Without Love, Your Life Is Useless And Worthless
The success of every true Christian is measured by how many people you have shared the Word of God with and led to the Throne of Grace of God. Finis.
For all worldly possessions are perishable and soon forgotten.
They will end up in the junkyard of time.
Your legacies shall be seen in the lives of those you have led out of darkness into the light of salvation.
1. If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

A Young Man is Amazed by God
Remember how I started praying in tongues when I was filled with the Holy Spirit and my friends said it sounded like Hebrew? Well, something astonishing happened a few years later. I was visited by a young Jewish man from Russia who was involved with New Age. For three hours I tried to convince him about the importance of the Bible. He laughed at me and said, ‘I am much more spiritually elevated than you are. I don’t need the Bible to find God.’ Tired from the discussion, I finally suggested we should pray and ask God to show us the truth. He agreed and started praying from a Jewish book with prayers for the Sabbath (it was Friday). Then I started praying. First I spoke in my own words, but I felt the Spirit of God move through me, encouraging me to be bold and start speaking in tongues out loud. I lifted my hands and started speaking in tongues.
The young Jewish man was shocked. His jaw fell open, his eyes were like balloons, and he stared at me.
When I felt I had prayed enough, I stopped. Immediately he asked me, ‘Have you got any idea what you just said?’ ‘No, I prayed in tongues. That is a supernatural prayer language God gives so our spirit can talk to God directly.’ He said, and now I was astounded, ‘You spoke 80-90% in old Hebrew, a holy language only the Rabbis in Israel know and they only use that language when they talk about God.’
His pride had vanished! He was suddenly completely open for anything I had to say. So I confidently told him about Jesus Christ. When he left, he thanked me with all his heart and said he hoped to reach the same ‘heights in the spiritual realm’ as where I was. I corrected him, saying the key to know God is to become like a little child.
