May the Lord fill your life with the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).

If God is not first in your life, then something else is (Deut 6:4-5, Matt 6:24, 33; 10:32-38, Mark 8:34, Luke 11:23, 1 John 5:21).

God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles. So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.” (Romans 1:18-25)

 

It is very sad to think that an ideology can become so ingrained in our culture that it reaches a point in which it is assumed to be true. Evolution could not be a better example of this phenomenon. It is so ingrained in our culture that it is no longer discussed in our schools. In fact, to speak of the contrary and challenge the theory is blasphemy to the likes of the ACLU. Why? It’s supposed to be a theory, right? Aren’t students allowed to question theories anymore? Is that not what the academic world does? Guess what? It is no longer just a theory but an accepted explanation of human life.

 

The book which thwarted this whole notion to explain our existence was based solely on a premise… a hypothesis. Charles Darwin made speculations about our origin based on limited knowledge that existed at the time. It is my understanding that Darwin himself questioned his own work by wondering if he devoted himself to follow a fantasy. To consider his book, “The Origin of Species,” as a biology textbook explaining our origin is a huge misconception! As a student of the sciences, one who studied many levels of biology, let me assure you that this book is not a biology textbook at all. If anyone has taken one single course in biology you know that a biology textbook contains numerous illustrations and photos. So why consider his book with one, single illustration a biology textbook? Furthermore, why consider a man who wrote a non-reproducible, non-testable hypothesis a man of science? Clearly one has to reach the conclusion that he was instead a philosopher with an idea… an idea that states evolution explains everything, such as pregnancy and the fact that only women carry the fetus, blood clotting, carrying on a conversation, and our cognitive awareness of sensory perception (e.g. the color red, the smell of roses, the sound of the ocean, the taste of salt). By the way, Darwin's book has since been modified to adjust for “evidence.” The Bible, on the other hand, has stood the test of time without modification!

 

Unfortunately, Darwin's theory of evolution has become an accepted fact without the facts. The question is, how is that possible in the scientific world? Science without facts is not science. Don’t we call people who practice medicine without proper training and knowledge “quacks”? What happened to our logic? What happened to our ability to question things that do not make sense? Has that function yet evolved? Is that why scientists estimate that we only use about 10% of our brain? Seriously, consider one of the most obvious flaws behind evolution, the theory of similarity. This states that we have a common ancestor (the chimp). But evolution is supposedly a theory about change… about natural selection and chance. How can the laws of similarity be governed by the same laws of chance? If indeed everything is just “chance” then that makes us all accidents! How does that make you feel if you are just an accident? The really sad thing is, I have heard countless stories of people who were told that they were accidents (that is, backseat accidents) and it made a profound impact on the decisions that they made in their lives.

 

It becomes clear why we cannot rely on our own logic or the logic of others. In fact a lot of us act like animals, but do we really want to identify ourselves as a by-product of the ape-man? What is so wrong in accepting something considered supernatural (Genesis 1-2)? I thought it was okay to believe in the supernatural? Or is that experience reserved only for the likes of Shirley MacLaine and sci-fi authors? Look, if we cannot accept supernatural powers, then what constitutes faith? Why wouldn't we want to accept the notion that there is something intelligent behind our origin instead of trying to simplify the process down to an idea that we evolved from a single, simple cell in a mud hole that became a “neanderthal” and then a man? I realize we came from the earth (Genesis 2:7), but can you imagine describing the work of a great sculptor, musician or engineer “as a great piece of evolution?” Do you think that they would become insulted (Isaiah 29:15-16)? What if as a parent you were told that you didn't create your child but rather he or she was a by-product of evolution? Does that insult you and your intelligence?

 

So why do evolutionists want us to accept this idea as the truth… as the absolute, infallible answer for our existence? Because to state that we came from the creation of God means that there must be a God. And, why don’t evolutionists want us to believe in a God? Because God has His rules and He wants us to play by them. Evolutionists want to reject God because they believe they know more. In the very beginning of Genesis, the first Book of the Bible, we are told about the fall of man because of Satan's deception. The theory of Evolution is no different. For one, it is a human theory. God's creation is not a theory. It is His testimony! By rejecting God and opting for choice and independence has lead us to other sins like disobedience, lying, shame (vanity), murder, and sexual pervsion like homosexuality (which blatantly rejects God's chosen order). It has become our nature to reject God and not live by God’s rules but instead in sin. Have we forgotten what we call people that do not play by the rules, besides sinners? Cheaters! And, who do the cheaters always end up cheating? Themselves (Isaiah 29:13, Ezekiel 33:31, Matthew 15:1-2, Romans 1:18-32)!

 

Imagine a life without God (read Ecclesiastes). This would mean that all things are merely relative and insignificant because our moral standards must also fit within this same premise in order to be consistently true. In other words, it is perfectly acceptable to dismiss persons with disabilities, to torture babies, and take people’s organs while they are still alive so that we can sell them or conduct experiments. Get the picture? Does it sound absurd? Sounds a little bit like Joseph Mengele and the genocide of the Holocaust. Nazi Germany was all about Darwin and natural selection (sterilization laws, Action T4 like Harthei & Hadamar, and concentration camps like Auschwitz and Dachau). In fact, this idea of eugenics is also the foundation of an organization called Planned Parenthood. You see, there are no boundaries when you reject God as an atheist. To say so otherwise only substantiates another flaw. You cannot try to assign a meaning to life when you adopt a theory that purports meaninglessness. To say that all things exist from natural selection immediately takes God out of the formula.

 

One fact that everyone can agree on is that we will all die. The question that looms among differing opinions is what happens afterward. The atheist will say I am wrong. If that is the case, well then neither of us have any worries because nothing will happen (according to their model). On the other hand, if I am right (which I am), then that leaves the atheist with a lot of regrets for a very, very long time! The bottom line comes down to what we are told in the Bible by Jesus: The world cannot be saved because it is not looking for the truth (John 10:10, 2 Corinthians 4:3-4, Ephesians 2:2-3; 6:12). The bad news is all over the OT, and it clearly states that we have all fallen short of God's standards. We are all sinners and are equally guilty as the criminal whose a murderer, liar, thief, rapist, etc. But there is Good News!

 

The Good News is all over the NT where we are given our final clemency. Our last and only chance to reach His Kingdom. That Good News is salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ and renewal through His resurrected body! The grace of God cannot be any better!!! The Lord has now told us that TODAY is the day to be saved. TODAY is the day to receive forgiveness for whatever sins you committed in the past. God holds the ONLY ERASER for our past and is GIVING us that opportunity to be free forever and ever! Accept the gift. Accept His abundance of love and mercy in exchange for the ways of the world…. a world that has a definitive timeframe (James 4:14).

 

 


 

 

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together” (Colossians 1:15-17).
