The Creation Teaches God!
Ps. 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth His handywork.” Verses 2-4 tell of nature speaking of God’s power and authority, His control. We will come back to this text later, for the text speaks of His law, statutes, commandments, judgments, all of which nature doesn’t explain. That is what we find in the Bible’s account. We do have God’s account of the beginning of all things in the book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible. The term “Genesis” simply means the beginning, within it is explanation of the beginning of many things we just assume always has been, but would evolution explain these things in perfection as God’s account does yet today? If the Biblical explanation of the origin of the universe is still active today, and IF everything operates the same as it did 6000 years ago, then we should understand this is all God’s world and He is in charge. He alone has the right to command as sovereign and ruler of the universe. Therefore we have the consistency within the universe. On the other hand, chance/change is the order of “evolution”, with things always changing. Under this concept, truth would be relative and always changing along with other things in the universe. Each level of evolution would have a supposed “improvement” in the ways of survival/life. Shall we consider some “what ifs”?
Next, let’s consider the Biblical concept of “Creationism”. Not only does the concept explain order in the universe, but the why there is order, GOD. The species of life, including plants and animals, were designed specifically by God. Non-living matter is designed to support the life within. Ie. Why do we have to take oxygen, water, food, etc., when we travel to other planets or moons in our universe. Additionally, why hasn’t evolution evolved on those planets to make them inhabitable? Please view the rest of this article on our website: www.histruth.net . Understand that if this concept stands the test of truth, then God is truth, and all things belong to God, including man. Truth is consistent, and the universe is consistent also.
Creationism gives us the order of the universe. It shows design from a superior mind/being, because this being existed prior to the beginning of all things. (Evolution makes matter and non-matter as existing prior to these beginnings. But where did they come from? Because of the evolving concept, they couldn’t have been eternal.) As the Bible teaches in Genesis 1, time began with God making the “evening and morning”, and establishing those being ordered by the sun, moon, and stars. It also focuses on our planet, earth, as being the primary concern of God, the originator/creator. Science, archaeology in particular, has proven the species of today, actually existed as far back as science has investigated. The earliest footprints found has man’s existence documented. God’s altering of time, is documented in scripture, and man’s attempts and “chance” has not corrected God’s power over time and the universe. Our solution acknowledges the alteration, and we made “leap year” to adjust our keeping of time as a result. Interesting that every reference in the Bible whether direct or indirect statements pertaining to our universe, are still true today. Here are some examples: the paths of the seas, the emptiness of space to the north, life and death, life begets kind after kind, the official “seasons” are still the same today, the unique quality of man over all life with the ability to reason and think. These are just a few of our facts/truths pertaining to nature, its design and order. Nothing in the universe has changed, (except the miracles) confirming order. Man’s existence has not changed. God gave man the ability to think and reason, and along with that “free will”. God has told us how man has corrupted the order of our way of living, the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil”. By Genesis 6:5, man grew away from God, developing a mind of “evil continually”. That knowledge has been released into the world. As great an influence on our life that knowledge is, knowledge of the Bible is greater, especially that of the New Testament, 1 John 3:9. (The seed is the word of God.) Nature acknowledges God’s authority and obeys, and man must trust God’s law of life to choose with free will to obey God, overcoming that knowledge of sin.
Will you use the power of God, the gospel, to overcome and cease your life of sin? Instead of debating right and wrong, just accept His word, and live according. Remember Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14 that we are accountable to Him. Creationism is consistent over time while Evolution is said to be chance and changing, but has always supported Creationism instead. Science is consistent with Bible, not the “theory”. Next, we pull these two articles together.
