In the fable of the ant and the grasshopper, the ant is portrayed as wise because he prepares for winter while the grasshopper lacks the common sense to acknowledge its approach and thus suffers and dies. God seemingly did infuse the ant with an instinct to cooperate and work for the common good of the colony. Continue reading
Most evolutionists would consider those who still believe in a universe created by God as ignorant, pathetic, uninformed and stubborn. Their stance is that there is no evidence of a creation and that evolution is a proven fact rather than a theory.
Bible believers do admit that one must accept many statements on faith. However, it is far from a blind faith. There is much evidence of creation in history, logic, archaeology, geology, mathematics, etc, etc.
Many of the claims of evolution are based on at least as much faith as creationists have. One recent commercial on TV says that all life came from the sea—not explaining where the sea came from. Bible faith declares that mankind was created from the dust of the earth and had nostrils into which God breathed the breath of life. ( Gen 2:7)
Most evolutionists teach that the smallest creatures, given enough millions of years, changed into all the forms of life we see today. Never mind that changes would have produced trillions of intermediate fossils. Would there not be all kinds of fossils with various stages of development? Would there not be many half-snake/half bird fossils? This seems to require great faith rather than fact.
Bible believers trust in a God who purposely made mankind in His image—knowledge-able, loving, wise, empathetic, insightful, etc, etc. ( Gen 1:26) Those who follow God can pass on these traits to the next generation. Those who don’t and depend of their own wisdom and faith leave a trail of arrogance, hurt and destruction.
Going The Distance (Part I)
The walk of faith is often a long and treacherous journey. There are pitfalls and obstacles along the way. Many threats from the “roaring lion” fill our ears and strike fear in our hearts. The challenges of a faithful walk with the Lord can be astonishing. Continue reading
HIT OR MYTH
The entertainment industry when trying to produce a product it believes will be a “HIT”, most often is willing to blur the lines between real Bible characters and its mythical versions. Sadly, the general public generally accepts myths for truth. Even a casual reader of the Bible would see very little resemblance in the Hollywood version of NOAH, MOSES and especially JESUS and the Biblical depiction. Continue reading
THIS LITTLE BLIGHT OF MINE
Much the same as the plant disease of blight wilts, deteriorates, and decays and finally kills healthy tissue, the spiritual blight of grumbling can destroy a healthy soul. We often think that a certain amount of grumbling is just human nature. God, however, takes it quite seriously as He did in the wilderness against the children of Israel. The repercussions were sometimes severe. All those who escaped Egyptian slavery who were 20 years of age or more (except Caleb and Joshua) died in the desert without entering the promised land. (Num 14:29) Many were killed by the destroying angel. (1 Cor 10:10) When Aaron and Miriam grumbled against Moses, she was struck with leprosy for 7 days. (Num 12:1 & 4) Continue reading
