Is Creation Really Falling Apart?

Many people asked me, “If God is an all-powerful Creator, how could He let His creation fall apart like this?”  The implication is that God somehow has lost control of Earth, that He is not sovereign.

But the Bible tells us exactly what God, the Creator, is doing.   Because if the original sin committed by Adam and Eve, God removed some of His sustaining power.  When God judged Adam’s sin in Genesis, He also made the earth to begin to decay.  In Romans 8:22, Paul tells us that all of creation is groaning and travailing in pain.  Everything is running down because of sin. God has given us a taste of life without Him… a world full of violence, death, suffering, and disease.

But our Creator’s hand is still obvious.  The book of Romans tells us the invisible things from the creation are clearly seen, even His eternal power and Godhead.  Our very presence on earth is evidence of God’s sustaining power.  Romans 1:19 and 20 states this very clearly:

“Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God has shown it to them.  For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”  KJVER

I hope that you caught that we are told that we are held responsible for understanding this; “so that they are without excuse:

In fact, if God withdrew all of His sustaining power, the creation would cease to exist as explained to us in Colossians 1:16 and 17.   Instead, our Creator is allowing things to slowly ‘unwind’ as a consequence of sin.  

But Christ Jesus stepped into history to die on the cross to save us from what Adam and Eve did, and what we continue to do, and He has promised to restore His Creation and return us to a perfect relationship with Him for eternity.

For this we should follow David’s lead:

“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all you lands.  Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His presence with singing.  Know you that the Lord He is God: and into His courts with praise: be thankful to Him, and bless His name.  For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endures to all generations.”  Psalm 100 KJVER

 


 
 

What Is the Solution To Racism?

Believe it or not, the solution really is simple.  If people in every culture accepted the history of the world according to the Bible, and built their thinking on God’s Word, then racism would disappear.

However, we live in a world where the majority of people reject God’s Word, and a result, the problem is not going to be solved.

Even so, Christians everywhere should be shouting from the hilltops that we understand the solution.  You see, the Bible teaches that all people are of one blood.  In reality, there’s only one race of people, all descendants of Adam and Eve, and there are not different races.

Today’s various ‘people groups’ and cultures came about as a result of God giving different languages at the time of the Tower of Babel. This would have caused different peoples to go in different directions and to different environments, thus developing the various groups that we call the races.

Genesis also tells us about the origin of sin.  All people have this problem.  Because we all are contaminated with the same blood disease, (we are all S-I-N Positive), all of mankind needs the solution of trusting Christ Jesus and every person needs to conform his/her thinking to His teachings.  If everyone accepted this, there would be absolutely no racism!

And [He] has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; that they should seek the Lord, if haply [perhaps] they might feel after Him, and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us.  Acts 17: 26 and 27  KJVER


 

 
 

Why Do Many Christians Accept Evolution?

Unfortunately, many Christians, in fact, many pastors, accept some form of evolution and try to add it to the Bible.  They say that God could have used evolutionary processes over millions of years to bring about plants, animals, and finally man.  Many accept molecule-to-man evolution, from the goo, to the zoo, to you, because they believe that science has “proven” that the earth is millions of years old.  So they simply attach God to the process.

But this view, called “theistic evolution,” is actually destructive to the gospel message.  Certainly, this does not mean that people who believe in theistic evolution are not Christians, since the Bible teaches that believing in and confessing Christ’s death, burial and resurrection is the key to salvation.  However, they are being very inconsistent in their faith.

The Bible clearly teaches that when God created Adam and Eve, the world was perfect… in other words, “very good.”  There was no death and bloodshed.  But, because of the sin of Adam, God brought death as a judgment into the world.  However, He also provided a means by which man could be reconciled to his Creator.

But a Christian who believes in evolution over eons as told by evolutionists must also believe that God used death and bloodshed over millions of years as a way to bring man into existence.  For them, the fossil record is not a sign of God’s judgment in the Flood, but of the cruel nature of the world they believe God created.  But, if death is not a result of the Fall, then why would God need to send His Son to save us from death?  In this view, cancer, pain, and death would simply be part of the original plan.

But thank God this is not the true history of the world.  Death came into the world because of sin, but Christ came to the earth and died to save us from sin and death.  There is no room for death before sin, and no room for the evolutionary myth in the Bible.


 
 

 

Evolutionist Quote of the Month

“We can use TV as a potent propaganda machine.  The stage is set for the infusion of true Satanic philosophy and potent (emotionally inspiring) music to accompany the inverted crosses and pentagrams. Instead of holding our rituals in chambers designed for a few dozen people, we are moving into auditoriums crowded with ecstatic Satanists thrusting their fists forward in the sign of the horns.”

Anton Szandor LaVey, The Devil’s Notebook, Feral House, Los Angelos, p. 85, 1992.
