“Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created; and thou renewest the face of the earth. The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in His works.”
Several years ago, Dr. Francis Hitching gave us his book The Neck of the Giraffe and in this he writes that Darwinism is in a lot of trouble. He laments, and I’m using his own words, that evolution “has not, contrary to general belief, and despite very great efforts, been proven.”
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us…”
What makes something right or wrong? Are things that are sometimes wrong always wrong? Most writers and commentators, even most preachers today, have problems with the question of right and wrong. That seems amazing since only a generation or two ago few people had any problems at all with the issue of right and wrong.
“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.”
When he was 17, medical student John Eccles began asking questions about the nature of man, what is thought, and what is the meaning of life? Fifty years later, after he had become one of the world’s greatest experts on the human brain, had become Sir John Eccles and had received the Nobel Prize, he felt free enough to speak out about his studies.
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”
What does the Bible’s teaching on creation have to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ? Well, let’s see what happens to Christ’s work of salvation if creation is untrue and God actually used evolution. Death in the animal kingdom must have come into the world long before the first man and before sin.
“To him who alone doeth great wonders: for His mercy endureth forever. To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth forever.”
Most of us are familiar with the Big Bang theory. It says the entire universe is the result of a gigantic explosion that took place about 16 billion years ago. This explosion eventually resulted in stars, galaxies, our Earth and even our genetic codes.
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
There is a popular idea that the biological differences between men and women are merely a “biological experiment” – and some say it is not a very good one! You may have even heard that all it takes is two sets of human genes to make a human being. This kind of thinking results from the evolutionary worldview. The Bible takes a very contrary view, extolling the unique virtues and abilities of both men and women.
“Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?”
Most of us are familiar with the fact that our Earth is being observed by dozens of satellites that keep track of weather systems, natural resources, ocean currents, sunlight, climate and animal migrations which makes every crop grown anywhere on Earth able to be identified.
“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgements, and his ways past finding out!”
We all know that it takes time to plan even simple projects. But did you ever think about the planning that God had to do when He created all the different kinds of living things? How many plans did He make? A billion? A billion times a billion?
“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, it was very good.”
When a clothing manufacturer selects a high quality fabric he is usually concerned enough to make sure that good workmanship goes into the final product. In a similar way, the fabric of the creation tells us a lot about its Creator. Mathematics more than anything else reflects the fabric of the creation.
“These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”
One of the most frequent questions we receive at Creation Moments is: “Where do you get all that fascinating information?” Is there a book that contains all these interesting programs?
“And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”
Today, let’s talk about the tremendous power in water.
Perhaps the first thing that you think of when the power of water is mentioned is the way it has cut and eroded the rocks of the Earth. But I am thinking of a power much more subtle than that. Some of the most impressive power of water is seen when it powers one of the water engines that God has created.
“And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling [fig] from the fig tree.”
Everything in the world is running down – nothing will last forever. It would be quite depressing if we didn’t know the reason for it and what God has done about it.
“All flesh [is] not the same flesh: but [there is] one [kind of] flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, [and] another of birds.”
Nova, the TV Science program aired on public broadcasting stations, presented an argument that human evolution is proven by the fact that, chemically, humans and apes are 99 percent alike. That argument has appeared many times, although very seldom in print. Dr.
“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.”
Blood is one of the most miraculous of all creations. It carries oxygen and energy to our cells, and carries off wastes. It is also a communications pipeline, using powerful hormones to provide communication between various parts of the body.
“And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man.”
Does oil really take millions of years to form from buried dead matter? Many people believe that because that’s what they have been taught. On the other hand, creationists believe that oil was either created by God at the formation of the Earth, or that it was formed after the burial of living things during the Genesis Flood only a few thousand years ago.
"Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints..."
Several years ago, the Southern Medical Journal reported that prayers can help sick hospital patients, even if they don't know they are being prayed for. However, some of the scientists involved said they would not accept the findings unless there was a certifiable miracle.
Dr Robert Carter explains the human genome is anything but simple. In fact, it is a super-complex computer operating system that far exceeds anything created by humans to date. The genome perhaps more than anything else...
