As I was praying the other night before bed I stood in my usual spot looking up at the heavens and praising God, the moon was so bright, it bathed my entire kitchen in a soft glow and nearly took my breath as I looked up in wonder at the majesty of God’s handiwork. The heavens really do declare God’s glory as David said. But then how could they not, that’s why he made them. As we study astronomy and are learning more about the universe I am astounded at just how glorious his work is. It is all so breathtaking but I think I have enjoyed our study of Jupiter most – it truly looks as if God took his finger and swirled the colors, painting it for His glory! It’s beautiful! And Saturn’s rings, some of which are braided, show his sense of humor and playfulness. I mean seriously he had to know one day man would figure out a way to see into the near heavens and we know he knew we would try to deny his hand in creation so he braided Saturn’s rings as if to say “Ha, explain that other than by my hand!” I love it! So I praise Him for it, I thank Him that I am able to look up in the sky and see proof of His existence all throughout the heavens.
Because I believe that God created the heavens though I take a lot of flack from some people. See they buy into the whole evolution false religion. That’s all it is you know, a religion, a faith based theory. And frankly one that can’t stand up to scientific or logical scrutiny. Allow me to explain why I say that but first, let me define what is meant by evolution according to those who worship at it’s altar (I know we all think we know what it means but trust me clarifying the definition now will save us some time.) In science all terms must be clearly and precisely defined, evolution is anything but as you will see.
Evolution is random mutational changes over a long period of time that add some benefit and new information to an organism or cell producing a change from one species (kind) to completely different species (kind). This mutational change must be viable and reproducible, it must improve the organism it is changing. Another definition used refers to the supposed big bang and subsequent slow formation of the non-living universe, all the planets, comets, asteroids, sun, moon stars, etc., even chemicals, according to their evolutionary model. In the case of chemical evolution the basic original chemical mutated, divided, and / or combined randomly to become the elements we have today. So far we have 5 specific and very different types of evolution covered: Vertical, organic, cosmic, stellar, and chemical, all of which are types of macro evolution. Bear with my little science lesson here for just a bit longer. We have one more definition to cover. Evolution also means the adaptation of an organism with in it’s kind through a non-mutational, beneficial change quickly. This is micro evolution and it is a fact – it’s simply the adaptation of organisms within their specific species or kind. For example the wolf, retrievers, poodles and Chihuahuas are all canines, different varieties of canines but all still canines. Same for Darwin’s finches – they have different beak shapes because they eat different foods but they are all still finches!
Let me go ahead be clear on what is meant by science as well just so we are all on the same page. For a theory, idea, or concept to be considered a scientific fact it needs to stand up to certain criteria. It must be be observable, demonstrable, and repeatable for starters, in other words it must be provable to be considered FACT. If an idea can not meet all these requirements it can not be considered a fact, facts must be proven by definition.
So we have 6 types of evolution taught in our schools today as scientific fact but are they facts? Not hardly! I propose they are nothing more than a bunch of elaborate stories that can not stand up against real scientific inquiry. Take for instance the Big Bang has anyone ever observed it occurring however many billion years ago they say it happened this week? Yet our children are taught that it is a cold hard provable fact that the big bang happened billions of years ago. What about a change of kinds – say a reptile to a bird, a cattle to a whale, a monkey to a man? Yet again no one has ever seen this occur, there is no real proof of it in the fossil layers either. If someone tries to tell you otherwise as them to prove it in the Precambrian or Cambrian layers, those are the bottom layers so they should be littered with evidence of this if it is a fact. They’re not, they have a few single cell simple organisms in the Precambrian layer then a huge explosion of basically every known structural form ever in existence in the Cambrian layer all at once. How about we go real simple with it and talk about the fact that no one has ever observed a beneficial mutation, instead a mutation is a loss of information (not an addition) that results in some harm or destruction, never a benefit.
Think about it, when we observe mutations today they are not good. Far from it they handicap, hinder and even kill what they are changing, not to mention that any mutation over the millions of years they say lay between each change would cause serious problems as necessary systems and features developed. According to cosmic and stellar evolutionary theory the Earth can not have water, Jupiter can’t exist and Saturn shouldn’t have rings. Stellar evolution says that over 6 billion new stars should be forming every minute; funny thing is no one has ever seen even one new star form. We’ve observed 30 some dying but never being born. I think you see where I am going with all this, right?
These five types of evolution are not provable, they are not fact! They can’t be observed, demonstrated or repeated. No one can prove them without resorting to a statement that requires the hearer to have faith that what they are being told is true. They are faith based statements, just as they accuse my belief in creation by God of being. No matter which one they try to use against creationists they can’t prove it. Not even when they claim fossils have been found tat show transitional stages. If they try to claim this ask them how much of the fossil was actually found verses how much of what they claim as fact was drawn by the artist. That shuts them down right there. Take for example Nebraska man where they only found a tooth but someone with a very vivid imagination dreamed up what he and his entire clan looked like. From a tooth. Believe me when I say we own the fossil record, it cries out with God’s fingerprints! As does all the rest of creation! So let’s claim it folks, let’s stop letting people fill our children’s heads with cunning fables and myths that undermine their faith ultimately causing many of the to choose the world over Christ. Some 70% of kids who are raised in church today walk away from it because they don’t know how to defend their faith against the faith of evolutionists. We have to change this, today. We need to lead our kids to love the Lord with all their hearts and souls, to trust in the truth of his word and to realize that science actually does a much better job at proving God’s creation than it does evolution, which it can’t begin to prove at all. How so you ask, well consider the following:
It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in; Isaiah 40:22
As the host of heaven cannot be numbered and the sands of the sea cannot be measured, so I will multiply the offspring of David my servant, and the Levitical priests who minister to me.” Jeremiah 33:22
When he gave to the wind its weight and apportioned the waters by measure, Job 28:25
There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory. 1 Corinthians 15:41
“Where is the way to the dwelling of light, and where is the place of darkness, that you may take it to its territory and that you may discern the paths to its home? Job 38:19-20
He stretches out the north over the void and hangs the earth on nothing. Job 26:7
The wind blows to the south and goes around to the north; around and around goes the wind, and on its circuits the wind returns. Ecclesiastes 1:6
Then the channels of the sea were seen; the foundations of the world were laid bare, at the rebuke of the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils. 2 Samuel 22:16
at the roots of the mountains. I went down to the land whose bars closed upon me forever; yet you brought up my life from the pit, O LORD my God. Jonah 2:6
For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar to make atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that makes atonement by the life. Leviticus 17:11
By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. Hebrews 11:3
“Have you entered into the springs of the sea, or walked in the recesses of the deep? Job 38:16
The next time someone questions or confronts you for believing that the word of God is true and that He did in fact create everything just as He says, smile then flip it on them. Make them prove their belief in the forms of macro evolution to you, ask them some critical thinking questions about their faith in evolution. Ask how they know it is true? Has anyone ever observed it? Are they making any assumptions in order to believe it? And can they show you any evidence for it at all that doesn’t require you to use faith in order to accept it as truth. They can’t. Plain and simple so it isn’t fact, it’s a belief, it’s faith.
Then try to point them to the truth, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The only faith that is true and can be proven. I gave you numerous examples of scientific facts that were stated in the bible hundreds of years before science proved them. They may say the Bible just got lucky or you can’t observe it’s truth today. I beg to differ, 2 Corinthians 5:17 says “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” and Ephesians 4:22-24 “to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” I am a new person thanks to Jesus. I’m not who I once was – no longer that scared, lonely, sinful, selfish person. That me is dead, I am made new through the redeeming, transforming blood of my Lord and Savior. Now I am filled with love, with hope, courage. I can speak out boldly now to proclaim the joy that lives inside me. I am changed and that is observable proof. That is my testimony.
Give them your testimony, defend why you place your faith in God and his son and all that they have created and done. Do this in love, showing the light of Jesus and his love. Then take them to the Gospels and show them how they can have this same love, hope, peace and joy. Start with John 3:16-17:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
Emphasis that he came to save the world, why would he need to do that? Then take them back to Genesis chapters 1-3 and sum up the creation and the fall pointing out each place in creation where science backs it up, if you want more info on this comment or message me and I will be happy to share my proof, after that go walk them down the Roman’s Road. Jesus gave us the great commission for a reason and we need to be actively working to fulfill that call.
I’m sorry this was such a long post tonight, but it’s a topic I feel a strong burden for. It is not God’s will that any should be lost but that all should come to repentance and salvation through His son Jesus Christ. I want to share the love and joy and peace I have in my sweet Lord with the world! I want to bring honor and glory to Him by proclaiming His name with my every breath. I pray you will all do the same.
Make ’em prove it and when they can’t let God speak!
As always may God bless and keep you my brothers and sisters in Christ.
