During my bible study time this morning I ran across this verse and wanted to share it.

Hebrews 11:6 NIV
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exsists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.

Did God really create the Earth?

Beth Moore stated some things about this book that I also wanted to share.

The authors John Clayton and Nils Jansma talk about the statics involved in a planet just becoming a planet.

Being in the right kind of galaxy 1 in 100
Being in the right place in the galaxy 1 in 150
Having the right kind of star 1 in 1,000
Being in the right distance from the star 1 in 10
Having the proper planetary spin 1 in 10
Having the proper planetary tilt 1 in 10
Having comet-sweeping planets 1 in 40
Not being near a black hole 1 in 250
Having a large solitary moon 1 in 10
Possessing a magnetic field capable of shielding 1 in 10

Total odds 1 in 150,000,000,000,000,000

Clayton states, "If I offered you a billion dollars (tax free) to jump out of an airplane at 10,000 feet without a parachute, with the proviso that you had to live to collect it, would you accept the offer? Not if you were in your right mind. Obviously, the odds of survival are much too small for any rational person to accept. Yet the odds of there being an 'accidental' planet hospitable for life using only the few parametes we have considered are 15 billion times less likely than surviving a free-fall from an airplane."

John Clayton is a scientist and former second- generation atheist who "came to believe in God while attempting to prove that the Bible contradicts known scientific fact. Instead of disproving the Bible, he found it to be absolutely reliable."

All I can say is WOW!!! I am so in AWE of what God can do in ANYONE'S life. Pastor Tim said something in his message on Sunday that also made me think of this kind of conversion. "If Jesus changed MY heart, why can't he change THEIR (whoever you hope will find a relationship with Jesus) heart."

This YouTube clip is of a group of people using white gloves and black lights to put pictures to the song by Casting Crowns "Who Am I" Hope you enjoy it...I sure did!!!

That's amazing, yet I shouldn't be amazed since God can do ANYTHING! I'm sadly still on Week 1...I've watched all the videos I just need to do my homework. Pray for me!
