Why do we deny the most obvious and undeniable things?
Consider, again, this statement made by the writer of the book of Hebrews:
For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
(Hebrews 3:4 NIV)
The question most often asked and most obvious when seeing something new is, “Who made this?”
No one would ever consider a television, a watch, a book, a bridge, a road, a bird’s nest, – and we could go on and on – as being something that just happened. All of those things demand a maker.
Even a simple thing like a pecan pie, or a glass of lemonade, would bring forth the same question, “Who made this?”
The statement applies to more than just a house. Everything is built by someone or something.
So, who made the things that no man, nor any created thing ever made? Who made the earth? Who made the sun, moon and stars? Who made the oceans, the rain and the wind? Who made us? Who made the trees, birds and animals?
How can we look at everything around us and say, “Oh, they just happened. No one made them.”
Paul described it so well, “Claiming to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:22).
