Hope you’re doing well in school. I’m sure you are on the verge of a very successful and prestigious career. I’m either going to medical school depending on what I make on the MCAT or probably doing a PHD for medical research. I write to you again concerning how life really works because no one else will. 99.9% sure no one else will make the case for you to grasp the meaning of life and not spit on truth since you’re surrounded by people that do not care. Therefore, I continue to feel obligated. I do not write to you claiming I have all the answers or that I’m some amazing perfect Christian now. I fail everyday just as anyone does, but not nearly as much and I don’t abide in my sin anymore. I’ve actually read the entire New Testament too. Working on the Old Testament now. Even though I’ve been saved since December 21st, 2001, my faith is still that of a toddler. Only a steady diet of prayer and the Word can grow it so that’s what I plan to do.
You could correct me if I’m wrong, but scientific reasoning and methods are what appeal to you. That is why in my last letter to you I gathered extensive scientific evidence for creation, you can refer back to what I sent you before. I’m sure you still put your faith in science to answer the questions of life. Obviously evolutionists would never be so blunt or brash to explain their ideas this way, but this is their theory at its core: “You are the accidental by-product of nature, a result of matter plus time plus chance. There is no reason for your existence. All you face is death.” Most atheists would probably say, well just live it up and leave a legacy behind. It’s meaningless. Everyone is met with the question in their mind of, what is the meaning of all this? Just to expound more on what I wrote in my last letter to you, I was mainly focusing on life which is also what evolution is restricted to. It has no explanation for the origin of inorganic matter. If they do, it’s probably more ridiculous than their ideas about organic matter. Evolution is driven by a genetic code: there is no genetic code to inorganic material. You’re a physics enthusiast. Think about the explanation offered by evolutionists. The law of entropy is paradoxical to their logic. There was absolute entropy then a big bang that began a process of ectropy according to them. The idea that over time things evolved to become more complex and ordered. Is that really how it works Sam? Of course not. The way it really happened was absolute entropy/disorder to absolute order and ectropy when everything was created in the beginning. Then over time things degrade. The genetic code is degenerative if you didn’t know. That’s why incest results in deformed children. After the flood the only people on earth were Noah and his descedents. The only way to procreate the earth again was through incest, however at the time the genetic code was still very pure considering people lived very very long lives. His sons Ham, Shem, and Japeth each represent the different races/ skin colors we have today. Simply look up the definitions of their names. (EG Ham: means black) I’m sure you know this if you read the Torah, but obviously in Moses time is when the genetic code took a drastic shift downward and the average lifespan was reduced to 70 I believe as a result of genetic degeneration. At that time was when incest was outlawed. There’s the long explanation for that.
Back to the topic of laws, they are almost all paradoxical to evolution. Constants in nature. What determined them and how are they enforced. Maybe these theorists would posit 100 million years ago the gravity on earth was say 2.3 m/s2 and that a long period of time it “evolved” and became stronger and that we will never see a change in it because it takes so very long for a change to happen. You know just how they use the same excuse to say why there are no examples of macro evolution in recorded history. Gravity is a big one but also the alignment of the earth itself is in a perfect position for life. Any deviance closer or farther away would result in inhabitable living conditions. What caused that? It for sure wasn’t chance. These are just small examples, I’m not gonna write you a book even though I could. I’m advancing towards the point that it is creation. And if you could ever accept it’s creation then the next skeptical question would be who is the Creator and what religion has the answers. I mean from my knowledge and personal experience I know by heart that being a Christian holds the answers to life and the key to eternal life: Salvation by trusting Jesus as your Savior who died on the cross and rose again. Very simple. But taking my word for it isn’t what I would ever expect you to do or anyone for that matter. I know you are of the sect of Jews that believes Jesus was a prophet and not God. And the logic is why would God come to the earth twice to save His people. It’s because He is the definition of love and established a new covenant through Jesus that allows Jew and Gentile alike to enter into heaven through salvation. Not by the old covenant of trying to obey the Jewish law and offering sacrifices to forgive your sins. The veil was torn. The Lord is holding out for a long time so that many will be saved and that the Word and news of Jesus would spread all over the world: which it has. That’s my take on that question you raised those years ago at school. As far as other religions go though, that’s a very long process to try and debunk those. Some are easier to debunk than others. Since Islam is such a large religion, Ill give some examples for why theirs is wrong. The fact that many believe that Allah is to be associated with the God of Abraham, Jehovah, the Great I Am, is absolutely false. Allah is a modern day Baal. Which was a golden idol worshipped. The Quran also has many contradictions in it which if it is to be considered a Holy Text, it must be inerrant truth, which it isn’t. The KJV version of the Bible has no contradictions or inerrancies.
I Corinthians 1:18-21
18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
Take me for a fool if you will. I’m merely fulfilling the obligations that I feel are laid on my heart. If you continue to harden your heart, so be it. The Lord will only let you harden so much and spit on truth for so long before it’s too late. Do not be deceived by the prostitute that is false religion. Peace be with you old friend.
