The Big Bang

The Big Bang only could have occurred with God’s active participation.

Someone had to conceive and produce the matter that exploded. Someone had to generate the energy that caused the explosion.

These things could not have materialized out of nothing. They must have had a creator.

Likewise, someone had to position the explosion within the matter properly and calculate its power correctly so that the Big Bang would produce a viable universe.

If the Big Bang had exploded with too much energy, the result would have been nothing but dust particles flying forever outward in all directions. There would be no stars, moons, or planets.

If the Big Bang had exploded with too little energy, the result would have been big chunks of matter moving slowly outward with little momentum. Gravity would have eventually pulled these clods back into a single mass without creating any galaxies.

Correctly calibrating the Big Bang explosion to create the universe required a precise calculation of incredible complexity. Only an intelligent designer could have devised this calculation. So if the Big Bang occurred, God made it happen.

Bible Descriptions

Genesis 1:1 abruptly declares, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

Zechariah 12:1 says God is currently stretching out the heavens. “The LORD, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person”

These texts may describe the Big Bang and its aftermath in simple terms.

After speaking into existence the matter that comprises the world, God may have triggered an explosion that created an ever-expanding universe.

God’s active participation is implicit in the evolution of plant and animal species within kinds. But the Bible indicates that humans are not products of evolution. God directly and uniquely created us. DNA affirms that he is the source of life. The Bible suggests that the earth could be either very old or relatively young. The Bible and science are harmonious.
