Are You Slipping Away?

The fall of mankind into faith in the strange religion of “evolutionism” is a textbook example of the pathological nature of sin. Our conscience operates to either push us away from what we see as wrong and evil, or to move us to self-justification and thereby drive us deeper into it. Sin is an infectious disease of the heart and mind. Anything that disturbs our conscience causes us to experience discomfort and fear. If we don’t have a solid ethical foundation and a determination to hold on to it, we will be persuaded by our society to abandon our values.

Sin is the breaking of God’s Laws. Sin is the dark side of the human conscience. Our conscience moves us to either do what is right or seek God’s forgiveness when we fail to keep God’s law. As we grow up we begin to worry more and more about social acceptance and if our culture is pushing us away from God’s Laws, our pride(or ego) will drive us to go against our conscience causing grief and unhappiness and eventually depression and sickness.

As sinners we are constantly looking for ways to turn off our conscience so it won’t eat at us. Television, music, alchohol, drugs, dangerous sports, and all sorts of stuff that we use to “ease our minds”. We become afraid of the dark, and extended silence can set us on edge and we fill our lives with murder mysteries, gossip, envy, greed and these serve to help keep our conscience at bay. Pride is the wall that we put up in our lives to try to convince ourself that we are in charge and it is based on a disrespect for our Creator.

The eventual outcome of pride is Sodom and Gomorrah, where godly people and even angels were viewed with hatred and targeted for abuse. When the men of the city heard that God’s messengers, (angels) were staying at Lot’s house, they demanded that Lot bring them out so they could gang rape them. In a very real sense they were giving God verbal equivalent to the “finger” and it illustrates what the gesture literally means. It’s a threat of rape in an effort to display dominance and “humble” the victim.

The only thing that God could find redeemable in those cities was Lot and his family and as we find out later, that vile mindset in Sodom had infected there hearts as well, sadly. So, the Creator brought Lot out before He destroyed the cities with “fire and brimstone” a hail of death. Satan is deathly afraid of our Creator and his plan is to dupe us into doing his dirty work. He wants to use us as pawns to attack our Creator if we let our conscience be “seered with a hot iron”.

When people abandon their faith in their Creator the eventual outcome will always be like Sodom. When people supersede their Creator in their hearts, hell is just around the corner. This is why sin is punished so severely. Because of our sin, we all deserve crucifiction and hell. But our Creator came as Jesus of Nazareth to take that punishment for us and we can be freed from our sin and their eternal consequences by believing this and asking for forgiveness thru Jesus.

Just like the songwriter said, “the things of earth will grow strangly dim in the light of His glory and grace.” We will no longer need to look for ways to silence our conscience and the fear of God’s judgement once we have God’s forgiveness and the peace it brings. “..may the peace of God that passes all understanding keep your hearts and mind thru Christ”. I can only tell you, you have to decide…

Amazing Creation!

How do you make a code rich in information? Look at the code used for living things. It should be of no surprise that the DNA information storage and retrieval system operates at more than one level. We’ve known for a while that it is encoded to manufacture complex 3 dimensional molecules we call “proteins”. But, it’s been recently discovered that this code also is used to manufacture other sorts things in order to build and run cells. One region of a DNA strand may be encoded with a myriad of instructions and these instructions can overlap each other on the same areas of DNA.

This, of course, explodes any notion that the DNA code could have ever been written by random processes, not that there was really any chance of that being possible otherwise anyway. It’s interesting that this discovery has been made at this juncture in the history of mankind. Jesus has made this creation that we are a part of in such a way that we have no excuse whatsoever for ignoring the fact that He engineered everything.

During Jesus’ visitation on earth, He was in complete command of nature and was able to overide the natural course of events at will. He converted simple water molecules into a much more complex liquid known as “wine” and very good wine at that. That meant restructuring atoms at the subatomic level to add additional elements to produce ethyl alchohol, coloring, sugars and grape extracts for flavoring to name a few.

He was able to observe a future disciple sitting under a certain kind of tree from a long distance. At His command a powerful storm was instantly calmed to the amazement of those with Him. He was able to instantly eliminate infections and cancers and restore healthy tissues at will for anyone that asked and was willing to believe in Him. It doesn’t take much imagination to realize the immensity of such accomplishments. This sort of thing wasn’t limited to the living, but the dead as well. Jesus was able to restore not only life to dead people, but also give them back their health and vitality as well!

Jesus terrified demonic entities and sent them out of men and women giving these people back control over their lives and actions. Jesus allowed His own cruel torture and death at the hands of men He had created. Then He demonstrated the breadth of His dominion over nature by raising Himself from the dead. He even made sure that the record of these events was well documented in the indisputable greatest book ever written, The Bible as we know it today.

How Does Darwinism Survive?

Darwin’s theory is horrible factually, intellectually(I could care less about science!) and logically. The fact that “science” has backed it whole heartedly really emphasizes just how blind and lame the big enterprise is. But, the reality is, how can science be reconciled to its perceived nemisis, the seemingly less sophisticated ‘creationists’? But, the simple argument called, “intelligent design” has sealed Darwin’s fate. Now any “scientist” that tries to refute ID is left being made to look like a kook.

To the average public it’s obvious that ID is an evolution killer. It’s the intellectuals and scientists that have for so long bashed and belittled creationists that can’t seem to break free of the antichristian mindset. The mindset that was set in place by Huxley and the X-Club, that science had replaced Christianity as the herald of a new age of human evolution and achievement instead of reconciliation, peace and devotion to our Creator thru Christ Jesus. Thomas Huxley believed that Biblical Christianity had vanished by the 2nd century and that it was now up to scientists to eliminate all vestiges of Christianity and teach the world that we are accidents of nature and our lives are meaningless and death is final.

Science is the faith of death contrasted by the faith in Jesus is life. Jesus is reality and science is a pathetic farce. And yet science holds fast to its misplaced faith in Darwin and itself. They even dig in their heels and declare some of themselves as, “evolution scientists”! They are doing all they can to paint a castle on the crumbling shack. Not a single new form of life worthy of the title, “genus” has ever been documented out of the sum 1,000,000 or so known species of life. Much less anything we can possible call a new, “order”, “family”, etc. For all we can tell natural biological adaptation is hard pressed to even produce enough change to come up with something barely resembling a new “species” even with all it’s variety of definitions.

I have had the good fortune to have a good handle on what evolution theory is having a BS in Biology and it’s helped me see thru the arguments of the evolutionists. It’s important to really digest the principles of physics, genetics, geology,  and so on. To tease out what has real support, like reversion to wilds, and what doesn’t, like common-descent. When you see the artistry in nature, you can no longer ignore a real Creator as its Artist sublime!

So, how does Darwinism survive? Because those that see thru it are cowards, too proud, too comfortable perhaps. All I can say is the Creator is watching….
