True Beauty

A person who does not believe in God cannot logically explain where beauty came from.Evolutionists try to explain why beauty might sometimes be helpful in evolution, but they cannot explain why all beauty exists. More than that, they cannot explain how beauty could evolve, since there is no known way for something completely new (like beauty) to create itself. New things are always made by someone—not themselves.


Also, why do you and I even see something as beautiful in the first place? A flower is not beautiful unless you see it as beautiful. So why do you see or hear something as beautiful? Evolutionists do not have a good answer to that question, but creationists do. A loving God exists who wants us to enjoy our life and have pleasure. So He gave us the ability to appreciate beauty.

From the microscope to the telescope, we see that God “made everything beautiful in its time” (Ecclesiastes 3:11). Beauty is not only proof that God exists, but proof of God’s love for us. Did you know that God made you beautiful, too? The most important beauty to have, however, is the beauty that we show the world that comes from inside of us when we live the way God wants us to live (1 Samuel 16:7; 1 Peter 3:4), reflecting the ultimate beauty of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who made beauty.
