The Bible says, “God is love,” and His love is seen in the blessing He bestowed on man in the beginning.
God made man in His own image, fashioned for him an amazing body, gave him great intelligence, placed him in a beautiful garden, gave him a perfectly suitable life-mate, made him the lord of the Earth, and provided him with everything he needed for sustenance and pleasure.
God filled the world with fresh air to breath, pure water to drink, delightful things to eat, lovely sights and beautiful sounds and wonderful smells. He made the rich soil and a bewildering variety of vegetation to grow in it. He provided insects to pollinate man’s crops and worms and bacteria to aerate the soil. God made a multitude of types of lovely trees for shade, food, and ten thousand other uses. He filled the earth beneath with minerals and ores.
God gave man a tongue and a mind and a voice by which to communicate his thoughts and an expressive face by which to communicate his feelings.
God gave man a brain that is the wonder of the created world.
God gave man eyes, with two million working parts, that can distinguish 10 million different colors and can see the light of a single candle at a distance of a mile.
God gave man a nose that can smell more than one trillion different odors and can remember 50,000 different ones.
God gave man ears that can hear the faintest whisper to the loudest thunder and can distinguish between hundreds of thousands of different sounds. When responding to very weak sounds, the ear drum vibrates less than the diameter of a single molecule.
God gave man hands that that can play the 88 keys of a piano, lift a tiny, fragile bird egg or a 100-pound stone, turn the pages of a book, or build a house.
God gave man a sense of touch via his amazing skin, four square inches of which contains 9,000 nerve endings, 36 heat sensors, and 75 pressure sensors.
God gave man a heart that beats 100,000 times per day and circulates six quarts (5.6 liters) of blood throughout the body three times every minute.
God gave man 60,000 miles of arteries, veins, and capillaries to carry the blood to every part of his amazing body. This is more than twice the distance around the earth.
God gave man kidneys that filter 50 gallons of blood each day through 140 miles of tubes and millions of filters.
God created friendship and laughter and marriage and children. He put the giggle in the child, the song in the songbird, the antics in the monkey, the beauty in the butterfly, and the glory in the sunset.
All of this is evidence of God’s great love. Let the world deny, reject, and even mock God if it will. I praise Him in Jesus Christ!

elijah, Thank you! May God Bless you.August 30, 2014 at 3:03 am #23671
another will argue because God which have love
also have hell ( to punish unbeliever )
and lot of misery thing in the world
“permitting” war, famine / desease and destruction in the world
including “doing nothing” with many human antrocities
basically it’s the same question as
muslim are seemingly “doing nothing” if other muslim doing antrocities in their name
( including doing antrocities in the name of our God )
God answer that question with simple answer
material world just a trial for believer
whatever happened in this world are God’s will
but will he choose God’s love and his promises ( Good will prevail and in the next life, Heaven )
or “hates” God’s will and doesn’t believe his promises ?August 30, 2014 at 10:23 am #23698
The hell you discribe is made by man, inflicted by men on other men. I don’t see god’s hand in any of this.August 30, 2014 at 5:12 pm #23728
I agree with 74. God gave man all the liberty and freedom to do whatever he wants, to be and do bad or good that is man’s choice. God doesn’t have his hand on any of this!
