Before I get into the main subject for today I would like to take a quick look at a story out of Canada. The Rebel, a news organization run by Ezra Levant. I know that some of you don’t like a news organization called “The Rebel, but the government in Canada treats those who stand for free speech as rebels. Ezra Levant is taking this derogatory term to show his opposition to the government’s censure of free speech. Remember, when they started calling those who followed Christ Christians it was a name of derision. The Canadian government is trying to stop anyone from saying anything negative against Islam.
The Rebel has revealed that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau plans to house more than 6,000 Muslim migrants on a long-term basis at military bases. Not only that, Canadian taxpayer funds are being set aside to build mosques, buy Qur’ans and prayer rugs. The cost for Quebec alone is more than $46,000,000 for the first six months. Canadian soldiers are no longer joining the fight against ISIS, they are coming home to wait hand and foot on Muslim migrants.
Lets get back to the subject of the false teachings of evolution.
There are many things that support the Genesis account of things, and that disprove the evolutionist account of things. It is easy to see which is true if we will simply look at the facts.
When God created things, He created them with age. When He created Adam and Eve, He didn’t create them as babies, He created them as adults. It is also probable that when he created other things, like trees, He created them also as mature adults.
We need to remember that facts don’t speak for themselves. All facts are interpreted by a presupposition in the mind. Creationists and evolutionists have the same facts, we have the same microscopes, testing procedures, etc. The question is, how do we end up with different interpretations of a fact? It is because of the presuppositions in the mind.
With a humanist world view, it is believed that it takes millions of years to make a canyon. With a biblical world view, we realize that a canyon can be created in a very short time, it just takes the right conditions. Understanding history means we must understand the conditions that made that history possible. When we do that, we find that what we find in the world agrees with the history of the Word of God. What we see in the evolutionary history, molecules to man, does not agree with what we see in our world.
Everything comes down to how we think. For Christians, the Bible should be our sole authority. We should rest our beliefs upon its truths, even though we don’t understand everything it says. We may not be able to explain everything, but if God said it, that settles it.
The evolutionist is filled with rebellion. He is in darkness. He is, like all of us, born with a sin nature. In Romans Chapter 1, the Bible tells us that the creation clearly shows us that God exists, and that we are subject to Him.
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: (Romans 1:19-20)
The truth of the matter is that the humanist has a rebellious heart. He does not want to submit to God. Listen to what Peter had to say about this:
For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: (2 Peter 3:5)
This shows that those who reject what the Bible says about creation are ignorant by their own choice.
Dr. Richard Lewontin, Professor of Genetics and Harvard, said, and I can’t give an exact quote, but here is the essence of it:
We take the side of evolutionary science, in spite of its absurdity in some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of it extravagant promises of health and life, because we cannot allow a divine foot in the door.
This statement shows that this isn’t an issue about facts, it is an issue about belief. If man came from evolution, then man decides truth. If God is Creator, then God will hold man accountable for how he lives in creation. It is an issue of accountability.
We are losing the argument and many of our children are losing their faith. What can we do about this?
We have two world views, one that accepts the authority of the Word of God, and the other that does not. The battle is really for the mind.
Earlier I mentioned the creation of the Grand Canyon. When someone says that it takes millions of years to create something like this, we can take them to Mt. St. Helen. After the eruption took place, the terrain had changed. There is one canyon there, called Engineer’s Canyon, that didn’t exist prior to the eruption of Mt. St. Helen. It is 90 ft. deep and 150 to 180 ft. wide. The engineers started pumping the water out of Spirit Lake, and the canyon was formed in about 29 months. There is another canyon that is called the Little Grand Canyon. It is about 1/40th the size of the Grand Canyon. The bottom of this canyon is Basalt rock, some of the hardest rock known to man. More than 30 ft. was carve in less than three hours in one day. It doesn’t take millions of years to carve out a canyon, it just takes the right conditions.
The evolutionist, as we have seen, wants to remove God, so they can’t consider the fact that canyons can be carved out in a short time if the conditions are right. This is why, with so much evidence supporting it, they can’t accept a worldwide flood. We have only looked at the example of Mt. St. Helen, but there are many examples of this throughout the world.
There are solid answers to the evolutionist’s arguments. An examination of the layers of strata show micro layers with crystals going in different directions, and we know that the layer was laid down all at once. At one of Skip’s meeting, some PHD students testified that they had just taken their test for their PHD, and to pass the test, they had to answer that it took 1,000 years to lay down one millimeter of strata, and that Skip had just shown in his presentation that this was not true.
