God made us.
People throughout the history have been searching, trying to invent some kind of happiness for themselves outside of God.
What we call human history is really a recollection of how men and women have tried to find something other than God, apart from God, which would make them happy.
And we can never succeed in this is because God made us.
He invented us.
And we need Him to be able to function, to be whole, and to be happy.
According to C. S. Lewis, “God designed the human machine to run on Himself. He Himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were designed to feed on. There is no other. That is why it is just no good asking God to make us happy in our own way without bothering about religion. God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing”.
When God created us, He gave us conscience.
This is the sense of right and wrong.
All through human history, everywhere we can see, there has been people trying to obey it.
But sadly none of us have quite succeeded.
This post is part of an on-going series.
To begin, read Natural law. A post about the law we all have in our hearts.
If you would like to know what comes after read the post about Moral law.
Having read that, you'll need to know Which moral law to choose.
If you agree we need to choose a moral law, maybe you'll agree that We need God.
After we have understood the need we have for God, it is time to research What is sin.
Having accepted your need for God, what kind of God is exactly a Christian God? This you can find out about in What we Christians believe.
Why is it so hard to follow Christian faith? What prevents you to believe in God?
Do not let yourself to be fooled by Christianity and water.
Who was first? The chicken or the egg? Read the post Of good and band - who was there first? The chicken or the egg?
If God is above everything else and did not create evil then Why God accepts the evil in the world?
