Everything that happens in nature seems to follow a certain order. For instance, a river has tributaries that flow in a certain direction. The river also follows a certain course and may drain in a larger water body that is far away from where the river originated. For order to exist there has to be a driving force.
I believe that there exists a powerful force that dictates the order that nature follows. This force is more powerful than any other force in the universe. I believe that this force is God. God is omnipotent and omnipresent. As God is not physically visible, I therefore believe in the existence of a spiritual realm. This realm consists of other spiritual beings for example angels.
I also believe in the existence of free will. Human beings are able to differentiate between right and wrong. They have the free will to choose what to do, be it right or wrong. With the existence of a spiritual realm, I believe in the existence of the soul and life after death. When the physical body dies, the soul lives on in the spiritual realm.
A good example of the order in nature is a seed. When a seed is planted, it germinates into a seedling and later grows into a tree. Another example is how insects such as butterflies follow the egg – larva – pupa – adult stages of development. Existence of rivers, lakes, oceans, deserts and forests exhibits order.
The different ecosystems support different life forms and this also shows order. For example, numerous species of fish can only survive in fresh water bodies while others can only survive in salty water bodies. None of them however can survive on land.
This shows that there is order in nature. Everything that happens is driven by a force. All these forces also require a driving force and this is where God comes in. He is the supreme force that drives all other forces in nature and in the entire universe.
I believe that everything in existence was created by God. I therefore reject the alternative philosophies of existence. These include the theories of evolution and the big bang. It is not possible for an ape to evolve into a human being as the two belong to different species. Evolution cannot explain the existence of other life species like the numerous plants that come in all shapes and sizes.
The big bang theory also cannot explain the existence of life and the order in nature. None of the two theories can explain the existence of earth and the other planets or even the existence of life after death and the spiritual realm.
Having this understanding will assist me to keep focused in life. I will appreciate the beauty and wonders of nature more. The knowledge of God will make me live a life that is morally upright. To keep with the Godly ways, I will endeavor to assist the less privileged in the society and to avoid oppressing other people. In order to take care of my body, I will eat healthy meals and exercise regularly.
To prepare my soul for the afterlife, I will follow the religious teachings and exercise my free will to choose right over wrong. I will also study hard to gain more knowledge on things that will assist me in life.
