Where then does one start, if he sincerely seeks to find the Truth?

If you are not sure if a Supreme Being, an all-powerful God, exists, then the first step to take is to ascertain that He is. The most obvious proof we have that a Divine Creator exists is the World and Universe around us, the visible, natural Creation.


The following true incident is a fitting illustration: Doctor Robert A. Millikan was the renowned American nuclear physicist who won the Nobel prize for his work in pioneering the splitting of the atom. One evening, at a banquet held in his honour, a young journalist approached him and said, "Dr. Millikan, although you are undoubtedly a brilliant scientist, a great physicist, I've heard rumour that you still cling to the old-fashioned concept of a Creator, that you actually believe in God!--Is this true?"

Millikan paused for a moment as he thoughtfully studied the young reporter's face. He then produced an elaborate gold pocket-watch from his vest and said, "Just as behind this watch there had to be an intelligent designer and watchmaker, so behind the intricate precision and timing of this great Universe, there had to be a great Creator!"


The Holy Book of three Faiths, the Bible, tells us, "Since the creation of the World, the invisible things of God--His eternal power and divine nature--are clearly seen, being understood by the visible things that He has made."--Romans 1:20*. In other words, the existence of an invisible Creator is manifest or made evident by the wonderful World which He has created, His Creation, the things which we can see.--The greatest credentials of the Creator are the marvellous things He has made!

The sea, the sky, the mountains, the valleys, the trees, the flowers, they're all telling us something! When you gaze into the heavens on a clear night, beholding the stars, planets and wonders of the Cosmos, haven't you ever felt that there must be a reason, a purpose behind it all?

--As if it all means something, says something?--Well, it is saying something!--It's all crying out, "Look!--There is a God! Look at the wonders He has made!" The Bible says:


"The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handiwork! Day after day utters speech, and night after night shows knowledge! There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard!"--Psalm 19:1-3.

God's entire Creation is a constant testimony of not only His existence, power and majesty, but also of His Love, concern and care for us in giving us such a beautiful World to live in!
