Who Is God?

Did you know that the Bible never tries to convince the reader that there is a God? As surprising as that sounds, it’s absolutely true. The Bible’s very first words begin by identifying God – but...

Were You Once a Fish?

Romans 1:25
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

In 1866, a German scientist and strong supporter of Darwin, Ernst Haeckel, got into trouble for faking evidence. He supposedly showed that developing embryos go through the earlier evolutionary stages of their species. The scientific community investigated his so called discovery and found that he had faked his drawings. Unfortunately, textbooks today - well over a century later - still present this faked evidence in support of evolution.

As a result, many people today still believe this false scientific theory. One of the most widely used "evidences" used to support this idea today is the claim that the developing human fetus has "gill slits" at one point in its development. In fact, a United States ambassador used this argument in support of abortion in a recent issue of National Review.

The truth is, the developing fetus has folds of skin around its neck that contain the developing organs found in the neck. These folds have nothing in common with gills. While no scientist today accepts this theory - and it is even refuted in most encyclopedias - it can still be found in textbooks used by high school students! Why? It would seem that few scientists have the courage to challenge this idea they know is wrong because it might make them appear to oppose evolution! But even worse is that this anti scientific idea continues to be used as a "scientific" justification for abortion.

Yes, it's true. The wrong view on origins can result in some disastrous "science" as well as human suffering!

Prayer: 
Dear Father in heaven; it is especially easy, even for Your people, to fall into an inadvertent worship of the creation in place of the Creator in our materialistic age. Help me to root this sin out of my life. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
