CREATION VS. EVOLUTION

In our New Life we now notice the beauty of God’s creation. The blue sky, the birds in the air, the majesty of the mountains or a sunset.

As we grow in our New Life with God we recognize the “awe” of God the creator and great artist of creation.

One of the most ridiculous lies of Satan and evil is that the world “evolved” all by itself by mere chance. Yet millions of people accept this way of thinking and reject God’s creation.

Nobody knows exactly how old the earth really is or how exactly it was created. Followers of Jesus believe that our loving God is our maker and the great artist who made the sky and heavens.

We must reject the “wisdom of the world” and embrace “the wisdom of God.”

 

READ SCRIPTURE

PSALM 14:1

1 Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good!

PSALM 19:1

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

1 CORINTHIANS 1:20-21

20 So where does this leave the philosophers, the scholars, and the world’s brilliant debaters? God has made the wisdom of this world look foolish.

21 Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe.

MATTHEW 7:13-15, NIV

13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

LIVE IT

Can you give any evidence for evolution or creation?

Where have you learned about the origin of life on earth?

What are ways that you can learn more about where everything comes from?

Don’t take anyone’s word for it, find out for yourself. Go online and ask hard questions of the evidence that you do find. There are some great resources out there.
