Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
A number of years ago a friend of mine told me that he could accept the Bible if it wasn’t for the first few chapters of Genesis. He is an anthropology major and educator and has spent his entire life in the public school system. Well, my friend wasn’t being totally honest … was he? You see I could have pointed out hundreds of truths in the Bible that are not in the first three chapters that he doesn't agree with. This is the same friend that thinks he has great knowledge of the Bible. How do I know? I once heard him make an offer to a pastor friend to speak at his church. Can you imagine the arrogance of an atheist making such an offer? I do think he was sincere. He has been teaching his opinions and principles in the school system for years unquestioned, and sees himself as an authority of sorts. In reality, he has clearly never studied the Bible.
I believe that this conversation with my friend is at the heart of what is wrong with Christianity today. People approach God as if their opinion is relevant or important. This first verse of Genesis is true whether my friend can accept it or not, and for sure there is no way you can reject the first three chapters of the Bible and accept the rest. Okay, now I will ask you a vital question. Is “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” true, or is it a lie? Do you believe the theory of evolution is true or is it false? The answers to these questions determine what our beliefs are likely to be on a whole list of issues that would include your purpose and meaning in life, abortion, environmentalism, euthanasia, and personal values. This is why there is no possible resolution on these issues politically. Christians not wanting to make waves or look foolish ... say nothing, and before you know it they and their children come to believe the lie.
By the way ... What do your children believe? Never, Never, Never ... allow atheists to train your children on this subject!
The problem is that like my teacher friend, millions of Christians have accepted the teaching of evolution as truth. The difference between my athiest friend and many Christians is that he is honest. That means they have to either deny Genesis 1:1 and conclude the Bible is a lie or they just have a compromised belief system. This dilemma has resulted in as many as 7-8 out of 10 professed Christians who are not sure what they believe on creation. If the Bible is false on creation, why should anyone believe any of the other Biblical teachings? This is not an issue up for discussion. Jesus claimed to be God. Was he telling the truth? Jesus said I am the way and the truth and the life. I have accepted Jesus and his promises as truth. If I choose not to believe Genesis 1:1, why would I believe in the Savior who claimed to be indwell-ed by the creator? John 14:10 “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.” If there is no creator, my entire belief system is destroyed.
Darwinian Evolution is an atheistic lie which has been and is being taught to our children as scientific fact. My teacher friend is right. Christians who say they believe in evolution are hypocrites. One belief or the other is false. They cannot both be true. I am convinced that the evidence for creation far outweighs evolution and in the weeks ahead I will demonstrate this fact.
Evolutionists who believe that evolution is scientific fact have been clearly deceived as we will also demonstrate.
I will start by saying that we clearly won’t resolve this question, but we each must resolve the question in our individual minds. I will begin by saying that even long before I was a Christian, evolution made no sense to me. The idea that our life has no meaning and purpose is foreign to me. When you think about it, most people who believe in evolution think life has meaning and purpose. They only believe in evolution because it has been accepted as fact in their high school and college science classes and to not agree brings ridicule by atheists. If you ask them; so do you really believe you evolved from a slug and your entire life has no meaning whatsoever?" ... What fool would actually say; "yes, I evolved from a slug"?
First and foremost, let’s make one thing clear. After 1859, atheists took over modern science and converted modern science from the belief that we lived in a universe that has been created by a “God of order” to an atheistic worldview with an agenda consistent with their "NO god" beliefs. Modern day science considers everything they do in the context of evolution as scientific law and anyone questioning evolution as fact is quickly and totally disregarded as unscientific and ignorant. Although atheists cannot deny the order of the universe, they refer to the order that is everywhere as the "appearance of order". This is an insult to legitimate science and to God. God’s word says: “I am the one who made the earth and created people to live on it. With my hands I stretched out the heavens. All the stars are at my command.” Isaiah 45:12.
Have you ever imagined how much money has been wasted focusing on space exploration? The more we have learned, the more we have concluded that space travel into the cosmos, outside our solar system, is not only virtually impossible … it is absolutely impossible. It is estimated that there are 100-500 billion suns in our galaxy and a trillion other galaxies. Hello ... clueless. We are wasting our time and money. Growing numbers of space scientists are concluding that sending messages into outer space is a pointless pursuit. Why in the world would intelligent people send radio messages, at the cost of billions of dollars, to stars in space that if received and answered it would take 50,000 years to receive a reply? Science is out of control. Atheists trying to prove their ideas and reach their goals, and further their plans.I certainly look forward to exploring the heavens when I receive my heavenly body and supernatural abilities, but humans are way out of their league.
Talk about the ignorance and arrogance of atheistic science in our world today … Richard Dawkins, leading atheist, Professor of Public Understanding of Science, Oxford University has told us “Darwin explained everything about life here on earth.” And he also said” but it is also possible that we are really alone in the universe” In other words, we know everything we need to know … but in reality, we know nothing. Professor of understanding ... what a sick joke. The fact is that Darwin didn’t really explain anything about life. Unless, of course you want to believe life has no meaning and our survival of the fittest existence leads nowhere and has no purpose beyond comforting ourselves. Is there anything to follow death? My atheist friends say: DIRT. Atheists don’t talk about what makes a human being different from a monkey or a caterpillar, and what is different between mankind and every other living creature? How did life begin? The atheists “spontaneous” answer is both insultingly absurd and scientifically laughable. 150 years ago Louis Pasteur proved that “spontaneous generation” was pure superstition. The law of biogenesis was established as irrefutable scientific fact. This law inarguably states that; "life only comes from life."
Although atheists admit that this law is not debatable, they object that unless there is at least one exception, they are forced to admit that life could have come about only through a supernatural act of creation. Since this is not possible in their world … they conveniently disregard the established law of science. They somehow think that this irrefutable law must have somehow been mysteriously overturned millions of times throughout the world. Not only is this unscientific … it is the opposite of science … it is scientific heresy. This same type of unscientific science is now being applied to the creation and promotion of the global warming hoax. And if you say … no way, I say … why would they not violate the rules of science, when rules and values have no meaning to slugs and gorillas? … this is survival of the fittest my friend. I can hear it now: "We need that money for our new project; and besides even if it’s not true, it will improve the environment. Besides all that, I need to pay for all of my stuff." In closing, Nobel Prize winning physicist Erwin Scrodinger one of the architects of quantum physics and an atheist, made this realistic admission: “The scientific picture of the real world around me is … ghastly silent about all … that is really near to our heart, that really matters to us … It knows nothing of beautiful and ugly, good and bad, God and eternity … Whence came I and whither go I? That is the great unfathomable question, the same for every one of us. Science has no answer for it.”
The consensus of scientists throughout all fields is that science cannot answer the WHY questions of life. Darwinism is in fact mankind stumbling in darkness.
The truth is that all men were created for a purpose by an omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent God who created all and who is Lord over all. As a Christian, I believe this by faith. Atheistic science believes in Darwinism by faith also. Darwinism is not legitimate science ... it is another form of religion ... unfortunately a false religion that has deceived millions to embrace an evil lie.
The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.

often contradict the wisdom of the world. Since we have been programmed by the world ... we have come to accept these worldly ideas as truth ... but when we consider God’s perspective ... we come to understand ... "the Lord's ways are not our ways"
