Destined for Eternity!

Today’s blog post was written by Jimmie Douglas, an ardent creationist and friend of Creation Moments. We asked him for permission to post this poem after seeing it in the Creation Moments Facebook group.

Destined for Eternity!

Evolution says I’m a relative of the cockroach and the slug,
   descended from an ancient slime and a prehistoric bug.
But God said, “Let us make man in the image of Us Three,
   a little lower than the angels but destined for eternity!”

Reincarnation says if a man dies, he’ll certainly live again
   as a gopher or a housefly or maybe a settin’ hen.
It’s evolution gone crazy, because they just can’t see
   I’m a little lower than the angels but destined for eternity!

And humanism says there is no God, no one to take His role;
   so I’m the master of my fate, the captain of my soul.
And Satan laughs as into the flames one more fool is hurled –
   but greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world!

You see, I’m a child of the King, a child of the King!
More than an animal, I’m a human being!
I have a soul, and that’s one thing the scientist just can’t see!
And I have worth for the Son of God gave His life for me!

Survival of the fittest, dog eat dog, you know it’s a jungle out there.
   This animal kingdom is a terrible place ruled by people who just don’t care.
But into this world a Man once came
   whose life changed everything!
And because He lives, I now can claim
   my place as a child of the King!

I’m a child of the King, a child of the King!
More than an animal, I’m a human being!
I have a soul, and that’s one thing the scientist just can’t see!
And I have worth for the Son of God gave His life for me!

I may be a little lower than the angels now,
But I’m destined for eternity!
A child of the King – for eternity!
A child of the King – for eternity!

Amen Brother Jimmie!

Unless humanity humbly bows at the knee before the Lord of Eternity, the glory and righteousness that could have been humanity's inheritance will be lost forever.

Here's the rest of the story of how this song came to be written.

“What do you believe about the Bible?”

A lady I once knew taught kindergarten in a church school. Each year before classes started, she took the time to put all of that curriculum’s religious materials way down in the back of the bottom cabinet. Although she professed to be a Christian, she didn’t want to “impose her beliefs” on others. After all, she was a church member from a different denomination.

One day this teacher came to work positively FURIOUS! It seemed that there was talk of having CREATIONISM taught right alongside evolution at her child’s public school!

When I asked her why that made her so angry, she said that she didn’t want her children “indoctrinated with religious propaganda.” Everyone “KNEW” that Evolution was “scientific truth,” and she wanted her children to get a “proper” education.

Now, THAT little outburst of hers certainly raised a question, didn’t it?

What did she actually BELIEVE about the Bible?

When I asked her that very question, her reply was that the Bible is “a good book full of nice stories with sound moral teachings, but it’s NOT the ‘TRUTH’.” She went on to say that the Bible was based on a true story but much of it was “a bunch of tales told by shepherds around campfires, NOT ‘THE Word of God’.”

At the same time the above drama was taking place, other folks in my Sunday School class were attempting to “harmonize” Evolution and Creationism. They bought into the idea that the Biblical account is merely how everything “evolved” and that the “days” of creation were actually ERAS lasting millions and millions of years, not 24 hours.

While there are thousands of problems with their “harmonization” attempt, one simple detail should suffice. If we look at the Biblical account of Creation, we’ll notice that God created plants on the 3rd day and then the Sun on the 4th. Plants can do without sunlight for 24 hours, but MILLIONS OF YEARS? I don’t think so. Do you?

This was all frustrating for me. I knew the answer, but I didn’t know how to communicate it. As a result of the combination of that “Christian” teacher being ashamed of the Gospel and the misguided attempt to “harmonize” Evolution and Creationism at my own church, I “downloaded” a new song that night in which God makes it crystal clear that we have to choose.

We just can’t have it both ways!

This was very helpful. I have been a Christian for a long time, but still always willing to learn from others. I found the third to last paragraph about the creation of plants enlightening and instructive. I had not looked at it from this angle before. Thank you (1 Thessolonians 1:2).
