The Marvel of Life
We've all heard it said that we are made up of about 98 cents worth of chemicals. However, the living matter that makes up our bodies is very different from non living matter.
Our growing understanding of biochemistry continues to close doors to evolutionary theory and open doors to the Bible's claims about the origin of life. Many evolutionary scientists are admitting that to say life is simply the right kind of chemistry is like saying that a computer is simply the right kind of plastic, metal and electricity.
Growing knowledge of the intricate information codes in living things has led many evolutionists to search for other theories, and some have even considered creation. Creationism is not growing in influence because it has good funding - it certainly doesn't. Creationism is gaining followers because it is becoming increasingly clear that no known principles can account for the development of living things. If science is proving anything, it is proving that life is impossible and should not exist!
This is exactly what the Bible tells us. Without God's direct activity within the world, life could not have come about - only God can be the source of life. This clear fact should steer all of us to the rest of God's message in Scripture. There God tells us that life is more than just food and drink - the material things of life. Full and complete life that satisfies the whole being is found only in Jesus Christ.
