Today's Creation Moment

Unnatural Selection?
Luke 12:33
"Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth...
Just about every public school textbook once included the example of the peppered moth. The moth is used as a prime example of natural selection. Supposedly, as the trees in the English countryside...

While I do not want to seem unsympathetic to those swayed by evolutionary thought, it is not even possible that the Lord used evolution to form creation. The Bible clearly stipulates that all living beings and all living plants were created, each after its own kind. That pretty much puts the snuff on thinking that Jesus Christ, the Creator of all things, put some sludge down here and waited millions of years for it to "evolve" into higher life forms. It also agrees with science, which shows that DNA is coded to replicate specific life forms, each after its own kind.

It's unsound thinking to limit God by making him rely on evolution. Peter clearly warned us to stay away from such ignorance: "For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished." (2 Pet. 3:5-6)

Peter points out that the earth was created by the word of the Lord, and that it is the Flood, not evolution, that we see documented in the fossil record.

As for the supposed millions of years of creation, Peter also stipulates that one day of the Lord is as a thousand of our years, so you can pretty much kiss millions of years good-bye unless you want to call Peter a liar.

I'm not going to do that, are you?
