Satanís Long Struggle Against God
Why teach Special Creation? Many people say that we ought to teach the Book, Blood, and Blessed Hope, to which I wholeheartedly agree. But one part of the "Book" is under attack by the pseudo-science being taught today, and that is the foundational book of Genesis. Our children get a steady diet of atheistic evolution in the media, public school systems, and in some liberal churches. If we donít teach them the truth about Godís creation, they will not likely hear it anywhere else.
In addition, if we are to reach people that donít believe in God, we need to be able to give them an answer when they ask the hard questions. Peter put it this way in: 1st Peter 3:15 (NKJV) "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear"; In this series of articles we will attempt to provide some information that will help us give the right answer.
All through history, Satan has been deluding men with enticing words, half truths, and outright lies. He began in the Garden of Eden deceiving Eve, and then Adam, to disobey God. He used a part of the truth and a deadly lie (thou shall not surely die) to get them to disobey God.
The sinful acts of man are recorded all through Godís word. Cain sought to do his own will and disobeyed God in his offering. Murder was the result of this disobedience. The list of men that disobeyed God run like a scarlet thread through the Scriptures. Things finally became so evil that God determined to eliminate mankind from off the Earth. But as we all know, Noah found grace and was preserved from the great flood, along with his family. Nimrod, soon after the flood, sought to be as God and build a tower to Heaven which resulted in God confounding the languages of man which caused them to disperse.
This series will be about Satanís ultimate delusion that has run rampant through the history of mankind. It started in Eden, continued through the mystery religions of the middle east, spread to Greece and Rome, and has culminated in the Godless theory of Evolution provided by Darwin and others. Nothing Satan has ever devised to deceive man has such fatal and eternal consequences. Most People today have bought into this "theory", which is really not a scientific theory at all, but a religious faith propagated by Satan and his followers.
As we progress through these lessons we will begin to understand that evolution is devoid of any scientific proof. Moreover, it is based on inference, assumption, wishful thinking, and circular reasoning. I hope that when we are through with this series we can say along with Dr. Duane Gish, "Itís amazing what you have to believe to be an unbeliever, I donít have enough faith to be an evolutionist."
The outline of the lessons in this series will be similar to what I teach in our Special Creation seminar. They will be Bible based, and supported by the facts of true science.
You may get a preview of it by visiting my website and viewing the slide show at www.creationministriesofhuntsville.org.
In His book "Evolution and the Modern Christian" page 2 of the preface, Dr. Henry Morris, states; "That the theory of evolution which is so utterly devoid of any legitimate scientific proof could have attained such universal power and prestige in the name of science is surely a remarkable commentary on human natureÖÖ..". He goes on to say; "It is evidence of manís capacity to deceive himself. The simple fact is that evolutionary theory is both totally false, and almost totally successful."
We will see that neither the Special Creation nor Evolutionistís model fit the proof demanded by the Scientific method: (1. observation, 2. asking a question, 3. constructing a hypothesis, 4. experimentation, and 5. formulation of a theory).
No one was there at creation but God. Observation is the first criterion of the scientific method, so both Special Creation and Evolution fail on the first step. Therefore, we must examine the evidence of the past, current observations, and the probability of creation ever happening by chance. Which model best fits the known evidence? What does Godís Word say? Do the known facts coincide with it?
Did God create all things ex nihilo (out of nothing) in six days or did some cosmic egg of hydrogen gas explode in a "Hot Big Bang" and make all the things we see in the universe? Basically we must accept one or the other of these premises.
If there was a cosmic egg of hydrogen gas, where did it come from? Dr. Gish has suggested that it may have come from a cosmic chicken. If that is so it begs the question, which came first, the cosmic chicken or the cosmic egg?
Evolution says that; "hydrogen is an odorless, tasteless invisible gas, that if given enough time, becomes people". I ask, what happens to Gas when it is released? Have you ever seen it form into something solid? Yet the universe is full of solid matter. When released, gas diffuses and dissipates it finally disappears from sight. Proponents of the Big Bang Theory now say it happened fifteen billion years ago. In 1967 it was five billion years. Why do you suppose it gets pushed further back? When we look at the mathematical probability of evolution we will see that fifteen trillion years would not be enough time to accommodate the theory of evolution.
The Bible says in Genesis chapter 1 verse 1: "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth".
Evolution begins with something already existing (the cosmic egg of hydrogen gas).The Bible begins with God Creating all things from no pre-existing material. Evolution explains nothing, The Bible explains everything.
The Law of Cause and Effect verifies the Genesis account. It states that each effect has a greater preceding cause. It is a proven scientific law, and leads us to conclude that all we see in the world today is a result of a greater preceding cause. If we digress back far enough, we come to the uncaused first cause which is the name the Hebrews gave to God (Jehovah means the self-Existent or Eternal One, and it is the Jewish national name of God).
We are compelled to believe therefore, that the evidence for special creation of the universe best fits the Creationists model. Evolutionistís explanations cause more questions that they answer. They make no attempt to explain the very beginning.
Evolution is an effort by Satan to do away with the need for God. As a result of the false theory of evolution, millions have been made to doubt the existence of God. The Bible has a distinct term for these people as we read in: Psalm 14:1 "The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good."
The Hebrew word for fool is nabal and the Greek word Jesus used for fool in Matthew 5:22 is moros from which we get the English word moron. In this verse we are admonished by Jesus not call anyone a moron. We donít have to, the Bible does it for us. Who is it that is a fool by this standard? Anyone who denies the existence of God.
In the next article we will look at the time of Creation. When did it happen? How long did it take? Was there a gap between the first and second verses of the first chapter of Genesis, or were there millions of years between each creation day?
