Genesis 1:1 & 26 says, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth... And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over ...all the earth...". We have of late been studying what a Christian worldview is, and why we need it. It is embarrassing and counter productive for those that claim the title “Christian”, to go through life thinking like a Marxist/Humanist. If you believe the Bible is God's Word (and I don't see how you couldn't, and still claim to be a Christian), then you need to read it, study it, speak it, live it, and obey it. We have covered the areas of Theology, Philosophy, and Ethics; and now we are on to Biology. Although I would like to cover three areas a week, I have found that's not possible. So let's get in to God's Truth.
Biology is simply the study of living organisms. We will look at other branches of science as well in this study, but biology is the most broad. As we have already learned, Secular Humanist and Marxist do not believe in God, or anything supernatural. In a nutshell, they believe billions of years ago, all the matter in the universe squished into a tiny dot and then exploded and made everything. Then millions of years of rain and lightning somehow caused a simple living organism. It then grew more complex, eventually going on to become fish, reptiles, mammals, monkeys, then us. This is called evolution.
Evolution is not only unbiblical and foolish – it is also dangerous, as history has proven. Evolution brings down man to the level a common animal, instead of a superior creation made in the image of God. Charles Darwin's book, The Origin of Species was racist, as the title proves. Here is the full title published Nov. 1859 On the Origins of the Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life. Hitler was a big Darwin and Nietzsche fan, and his book Mein Kampf (My Struggle) was based on natural selection ideology. Now you know how Hitler could murder millions of innocent people. In his mind, he was simply preserving the favored race in this struggle called life.
Mussolini was also a Darwin/Nietzsche fan as well. Marx and Lenin, the Communist revolutionists, were ardent evolutionists. J. Stalin read Darwin while in Christian School, and became an atheist – and we know how he turned out. He murdered over 20 million of his own people. Tens of millions were imprisoned and/or tortured by Stalin, the evolutionist. In his mind, Russia had evolved into a socialist society, so you either evolve or you died. It's simple survival of the fittest.
Evolution mocks Jesus Christ, the creator of all things (Col 1:13-17, Eph 3:9, 1Cor 8:6, Jn 1:3, 10). It says all the incredible galaxies and creatures of the earth are simply here by random chance. This is anti Bible, and anti Christ. Evolution also teaches only the strong have value. The aged, the retarded, the unborn, the handicapped, certain races – they are not “fit” to live. A Biblical worldview values life, because man is created in God's image. Now, I don't believe every evolutionist is a mass murderer by any means. However, the evolutionary thinking behind the actions of Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Marx, Lenin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc. is undeniable.
A Christian does not have to fear science. In fact, true science is an ally to Christians. We have no facts to fear from evolutionary teaching. Many facts disprove it already. Here are some: The Second Law of Thermodynamics; The Anthropic Principle; No proof of intermediate lifeforms – living or in fossils; The impossibility of Spontaneous Generation (this was proven by Louis Pasteur in 1861); No evidence for mutations resulting in other species (Gregor Mendel, 1865); Teleology, or intelligent design obvious in the extreme complexity of a single cell, and the orderliness of the universe; The silliness of Punctuated Equilibrium, also known as the “Hopeful Monster” theory, which states that millions of years can go by with no change and then “Blam”, an alligator lays an egg, and a bird flies out (I'm serious).
The really big one is DNA. Francis Crick, an evolutionist and Nobel prize winner , co founded DNA. Afterward, he said evolution is impossible. He then came up with the equally ridiculous “Directed Panspermia” theory. DNA is miraculous. Walter Brown, Jr. said, “If all the DNA in your body was put end to end, it would stretch to the moon 100,000 times! If it was put in typewritten form, it would fill the Grand Canyon 40 times! Yet, all of your DNA would not fill 2 teaspoons.” Truly, we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Ps 139:14).
All of creation points to the Creator. A building, a watch, a car: they are all evidence of a designer. No one would think the space shuttle “just happened”. It's obvious someone designed it and built it. However, it's been proven by molecular biologist that the simplest bacterial cells are much more complex than any man-made machine on the face of the earth! And you're going to believe they “just happened”? I hope that would insult your intelligence. Folks, God made us. God made the stars, the planets, the galaxies. He made the earth, the sun, the water, the moon. He made the rocks, the trees, and everything else. And He spoke it into existence out of nothing. God is eternal. He has always been. This is what the Bible teaches. This is what a Christian believes. Know what your Bible says. Stand for what it says. Serving Christ is about being popular with God, not with man. Do you care about what God thinks, or what man thinks? Until next time, rejoice in the Lord!
