Evolutionary Folly

Biologists tell us that the more they study the makeup of living things, the more astonished they are at the complexity of life. All living organisms are made up of cells including man. The human body is made up of 100 trillion cells. Some of these cells are so small that 100 million single cells could occupy the space of a pinhead.

We are told that a single cell is the most complex structure known to man. Each man or woman’s life began when a single sperm cell fertilized an egg.

In that first cell, the potential of the whole man was contained and indeed the potential of the whole human race was contained.  That cell contained the ability to multiply into the completed man made up of 100 trillion cells.

Biologists tell us that the cell is a micro universe containing millions of molecules. They tell us that these molecules are the building blocks out of which man is constructed.

 In that first cell is contained all of the complexities of the eye, the ear, the human brain and the wonders of the whole human body.  Contained in that tiny cell is the body, mind, soul, will and emotions of the man. Indeed the mystery of life is contained in that single cell.

The human brain is one of the most mysterious and enigmatic organs of the human body. It serves as the vehicle for the most primal desires. Everything from the desire to eat and sleep to the ability to engage in intellectual civil discourse is held within the human brain.

The brain is the centre of a complex computer system. The body’s computer system computes and sends throughout the body billions of bits of information, information that controls every action, right down to the flicker of an eyelid. In most computer systems, the information is carried by wires and electronic parts. In the body, nerves are the wires that carry the information back and forth from the central nervous system. And in just one human brain there is probably more wiring, more electrical circuitry than in all the computer systems of the world put together.

The heart actually is a muscular pump forcing blood through thousands of miles of blood vessels. Blood carries food and oxygen to every part of the body. The heart pumps an average of six litres of blood every minute, and in one day pumps enough blood to fill more than forty 50-gallon drums.

The body has a chemical plant far more intricate than any plant that man has ever built. This plant changes the food we eat into living tissue. It causes the growth of flesh, blood, bones and teeth. It even repairs the body when parts are damaged by accident or disease. Power for work and play comes from the food we eat and digest.

From Adam came the transfer of the first cell and in that cell was contained the whole human race. For 6,000 years the process has continued and the basic makeup of man has not changed.

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7). It was man that God formed not an ape.

God formed man from the dust of the earth not from an ape. Nor did He form an ape that became a man. “Man Became a living soul.” An ape does not have a living soul. That is patently obvious.

The raw material, the basic chemicals in our body, can be found in the “dust of the ground”. However, these chemicals cannot arrange themselves into cell tissues, organs and systems. This can only happen with an input of the intelligence of a sovereign, infinite, almighty God.

We are more than the chemicals that form our body. We are a special creation of God. Man is God’s masterpiece. He is God’s workmanship, the crown of His creation.

Today there are over 7 billion people on the earth and each one is man as originally designed by God in the beginning.  Each of the seven billion men on earth today is uniquely and distinctly the essence of what man is and always has been. Of the seven billion men on earth there is no variation or change in their essence as men. The sun may blacken some and the environment may change some in superficial ways but the essence of what man is never changes.

I repeat, God created Adam and placed in him the seed of the whole human race. God created the animals the same way. There is no change in their essence, neither man nor animals. Though there is variety within the species of animals, the species never change.

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them” (Genesis 2:1). God’s creation was a finished work, it was complete and final. And God was pleased with it. “And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day” (Genesis 1:31).

The single cell from which each man or woman originates contains wonders beyond human comprehension. It contains millions of processes and materials including the completed human genome. It is obvious that unless the cell was complete it could not reproduce nor could it slowly evolve.  It seems obvious that the whole process is beyond the possibility of the evolutionary theory.

Understand that unless there was a perfect, complete human male body to produce that first perfect single cell for reproduction and unless there was a perfect and complete female body to fertilize that cell, no life could come about. Evolution is logically an impossibility. A partially formed body undergoing the evolutionary process could not be involved in human reproduction.

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7).

Why is it that men insist on holding to the theory of evolution? The Word of God tells us that the reason is not intellectual but it is a matter of the heart which is set against God. “The fool hath said in his heart there is no God…” (Psalm 14:1). Notice it is in the heart and not in the mind that men reject God and His creative powers.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 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: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:18-22).

When the heart turns from God in rebellion against Him, God gives such a heart over to foolishness. The wise become fools.

Understand that the seed of the whole human race was placed in Adam. When Adam sinned he fell from grace and both Adam and his seed died spiritually. When Adam passed on his seed it was a seed that was dead in trespasses and sin. “And you hath he quickened, (made alive) who were dead in trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1).

All those who are partakers of Adam’s seed are born with a body which is dying and a spirit that is separated from God, spiritually dead.

God has made provisin for all men who are unregenerate and cut off from Him. He has provided “in Christ” a way for men to be restored from alienation from Him.  “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” (1 Peter 1:23). All men are born with Adam’s nature which has been corrupted by his sin and that sin nature has been passed on to every son of Adam. The truth is that men are sinners by nature and by choice.

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3).  Christ states clearly that if a man wants to go to heaven and escape the eternal wrath of God he must be born again by God’s Spirit.

He must become a new man, a new person. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

The natural man, the unsaved person is under the wrath of God because of sin. “… God is angry with the wicked every day” (Psalm 7:11). “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John3:36).

Though the unsaved man is alienated from God, yet he belongs to God and is accountable to Him. “The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” (Psalm 24:1). Every man belongs to God by right of the fact that He created all men in Adam.

Not only do all men belong to God but they are accountable to Him. In Revelation 20:11-15 we see all men brought in to account before God. “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

What should you do if you are unsaved? Jesus said, “…Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” My friend your sin and your sin nature have separated you from God and you must recognize your sin and repent of it and turn from it and receive Christ as your Saviour.

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit” (1 Peter 3:18). “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed” (1 Peter 2:24).

In that scriptural context Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47). Remember that faith and repentance are two sides of the same coin, they must go together.

 What hinders you from coming to Christ right now?

The evolutionist is blind to the truth of God’s Word and he refuses to see the truth that God created the heavens and the earth and everything in it. He rejects the fact that he is accountable to God. He propagates the absurd idea that things evolved out of nothing by chance. He does that to wishfully escape his accountability to God and to escape the judgment of God upon him for his sin.

They allege that single cells evolved into more complex forms of life. They allege that over millions of years, one form of life gradually transitioned into another form of life. Fish became birds and dogs became bears etcetera. The problem is that there would of necessity be intermediate forms of life in the long period of transition. They have no explanation as to where the original single cell came from with all of its complexity.

There should be found fossils that demonstrate a dog as 50 % dog and 50 % bear, etcetera.  The problem is that there has never been found one single record of such transition in all of the fossil records. Some fake fossils have been presented but they have been discredited.

Scientists call these missing links because no intermediate forms of life can be found in the fossil records. Creationists claim that each species was created separately and that is the reason there are no missing links.

Roger Oakland in his excellent book, “The Evolutionary Conspiracy” makes the following statement which explains the moral decline we have faced in recent times.

[Shattered marriages, sexual promiscuity, abortion, human trafficking, homosexual marriage, crime, youth in rebellion. What is happening to our world and why?

It may astonish you, but belief in the evolutionary of life is the source of much of our present society’s confusion and waning morality. Evolutionism, in all of its forms, has become so firmly entrenched that it now tears at the very fabric of our moral structure.

God’s law, when applied correctly, establishes man’s personal and moral conduct, his families’ well-being, and harmony in the ruling of a nation…..The first thing we are told in the Bible is that “God created.”

God denied “in the beginning” brings disharmony in every other relationship in life.

Evolutionism frees man from the question of submission to God.

The evolutionary premise is a cancerous tumor that has reached into every major circle of society and corrupted cherished values.]

When young people who are raised in a Christian home go off to high school or college they are bombarded with the lies of evolutionary theory. To believe those lies will inevitably result in loss of faith and ultimately surrender to the world and its values. If a young person can be persuaded that there is no God, faith is of course shipwrecked.

One young college freshman revealed how that on the first day of classes his professor stated that he was open to leave now because if he stayed his faith would be destroyed before the semester was over.

The evolutionist lies when he states that evolution is a fact and that no knowledgeable person will deny it. The truth is that some of the world’s foremost scientists have stated that they believe that creation took place by God in six literal days. Raymond Damadian, Inventor of the MRI is one of them. The MRI is one of the major medical breakthroughs of modern times.

As Science Digest reported: "Scientists who utterly reject Evolution may be one of our fastest-growing controversial minorities… Many of the scientists supporting this position hold impressive credentials in science."

150 Ph.D. scientists and 300 other scientists with master’s degrees in science or engineering are members of the Korea Association of Creation Research. 

The evolutionary theory is now taking the next step, spiritual evolution with its’ teaching that men can now become  gods.

Satan said in the beginning to Eve, “Ye shall be as gods.” Satan is the ultimate liar but men are now buying into his lie.

We are now coming to the end of the age and we see Satan’s final attempt to seduce and enslave men and to de-throne God. Listen to Satan’s boast in Isaiah 14:13-14, “For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions (the Word of God) which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle” (2 Thessalonians 2:15).

THEREFORE STAND

A must read for every young person going off to high school or college is Roger Oakland’s excellent book, “The Evolution Conspiracy.”
