“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.” John 1:3
Why is answering the creation versus evolution question extremely important for every Christian?
Creation is at the foundation of our belief system. And Jesus teaches us of the importance of a strong foundation early on. “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” Matthew 7:24-27
Evolution is atheism’s response to God. Atheistic science knows that if believers doubt creation, evil can control other beliefs as well. I am certain that “All things came into being through Him (Jesus), and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being” — is true.
Science says it does not believe in anything it cannot prove. Except of course evolution, and man-made global warming which it promotes most dogmatically. And automatically rejecting anyone, and any idea that doesn’t agree with science’s theories.
There is little chance secular science will ever look at creation as a remote possibility. Philosophically creation is absolutely foreign to secular science’s atheistic mindset. And financially creation would be devastating to funding which pays for scientific research.
A scientist friend who set out to prove the bible to be false once told me; “I’m sorry to admit, that while cross-referencing the prophecies in Isaiah with the new testament fulfillments — I got to a point where I realized the evidence for Jesus was overwhelming. Only then did I know Jesus is God and believe.” And when that man shares his Christian beliefs, science then does everything it can to discredit him.
Jesus is the greatest miracle of all. Jesus is the rock, our strong foundation that He talks about here. Darwinism is a direct assault on the truth of Jesus Christ. And if Jesus is not the way, the truth, and the life … then God lied. But I know it is impossible for God to lie. — “In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us.” Hebrews 6:17-18
Countless people have been programmed with Darwinian false beliefs and then the’re bewildered when they can’t understand spiritual things. Is it any wonder that our society appears hopelessly divided? God’s word clearly predicts these current divisions.
“For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”
2 Timothy 4:3-4
But this circular reasoning is most un-scientific. Science says it doesn’t believe in miracles but in reality evolution is such a fantasy that when considered critically it is far more difficult to believe than creation. The only thing that makes Darwin believable to atheists is that evolution begins and ends without God. Evolution has become their religion and their god.
“Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is the one who catches the wise in their craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are useless.” 1 Corinthians 3:18-20
So we are at an impasse — the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. And to the contrary; biblical truth is foolishness from the world’s point of view. Don’t be a hypocrite.
Do you stand upon the teachings of Jesus … or men?
