Stephen Hawkings' and his Grand Design

Reviewing Stephen Hawking's new book The Grand Design, The Guardian's Tim Radford wrote "Here is how to create a universe fit for both Stephen Hawking and his readers: first, you need laws of physics that embrace gravity, quantum electrodynamics, special and general relativity and a few other things that are very simple to describe but very difficult to comprehend."  Hawkings, like many other spiritually blind 'experts', devise more and more convoluted theories in their efforts to persuade the blinkered  masses that God is not necessary, they can simply argue Him away.  A classic illustration of the blind leading the blind. 

It is a correct assumption that no one can prove God's existence but God can and does reveal himself to the millions who earnestly seek Him.  Regardless, one can look at nature and intelligently conclude that there is an omnipotent Creator. Conversely, one can ignore the evidence and create theories to suit one's own paradigm.

The real crux of the knowledge of God's existence is that He is Spirit and it is only by his Spirit that He can be known.

Just prior to Jesus assent into Heaven we read in Matthew 28:16-17 "Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him—but some of them doubted!" Ten of those eleven doubting disciples would become so convinced of God and his Christ that they would die for their faith (John died a natural death). Over the past 2,000 years hundreds of thousands of others have chosen to die rather than renounce their faith in the existence of God and the opened the pathway of a personal relationship with Him through the person of Jesus Christ. That is not blind faith.  That is CERTAINTY!  That is KNOWLEDGE!
