I believe that the theory of evolution is stupid and dangerous. I further believe that if you call yourself a Christian, it is your duty to fight the lie of evolution using science and the Bible.Let’s begin with Romans 1:18-25
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse . 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie , and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen.
YOUR PHILOSOPHY DETERMINES YOUR DESTINY
If God created us in His image with intelligence and a soul, then we have a destiny, love has meaning and we are not animals But, if we are the product of an explosion of prehistoric gasses and the process of millions of years of evolution, we had no designer, life has no meaning, we don’t have souls and we are just like the monkeys in the jungle.
AGAIN, YOUR PHILOSOPHY WILL DETERMINE YOUR DESTINY
If there’s one thing that really makes me angry, it’s the fact that here in America, in our public school system from elementary to university level, we teach the lie of evolution as a fact, and don’t bother talking about creation — and it’s done WITH OUR MONEY!! “Hey kids, you are just animals without souls; the product of millions of years of accidental evolutionary forces.” “You might as well do what comes natural, because you are just a higher form of monkey!” Just like Paul just said in Romans: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” Evolution has been discredited over and over, but, like Hitler and Goebells said, “If you repeat a lie often enough and loud enough, people will believe it”!
Tonight I want to give you 3 strong reasons why evolution is stupid, illogical and preposterous.
REASON NUMBER ONE — EVOLUTION MAKES NO SENSE ACCORDING TO THE LAWS OF PHYSICS
The idea of evolution is totally contrary to the 1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics. You leave something by itself and it will decay over time, NOT IMPROVE! Chaos does not produce order…..EVER!!! This is silly on its face. When you ask the evolutionist, “How is that possible?”, they whip out their magic wand : ” Millions and Billions of Years ” — That fixes everything, right? Duh! You mean that over millions of years, chaos produces order, things grow and get better, and species somehow give birth to whole other species. Huh? That’s your best substitute for Creator God?
WE MUST ATTACK THIS FOOLISHNESS WITH THE OBVIOUS ARGUMENT OF “DESIGN”
The universe displays a staggering amount of intelligibility, both in the things we observe and how they relate to others outside themselves (their existence and co-existence). Thus, the universe must be the product of intelligent design. Intelligent design can only come from an intelligent designer: God. What are the chances that a tornado would blow, through a junkyard full of airplane parts, accidentally assemble them into a plane, and leave behind a 747 ready for take-off?
Not likely. Oh, but chaos creates order, right? Where’s that magic wand? Millions and billions of years!!
What are the chances that a quintillion monkeys typing for a quintillion years would eventually produce “Hamlet”? No, my friend. Those monkeys would produce a mess. Where’s that magic wand? Millions and billions of years!!
What if I smash my watch with a hammer and leave its parts laying in the desert. What will I find after 1,000 years? A brand new, improved watch? Wrong! Hey, but where’s that magic wand? Millions and billions of years!!
“The survival of the fittest presupposes the arrival of the fit.” “To suppose that the eye…with so many parts all working together, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.” — Charles Darwin in Origins of Species —
Psalm 19 explains the beauty of God’s creation, and God’s answers to Job in the Book of Job also highlight the miracle of the creatures that He created.
God spoke and life appeared. It’s that simple.
REASON NUMBER TWO — I’M SORRY MR. DARWIN, BUT I’M DIFFERENT FROM THE ANIMALS WE HAVE A DESIRE TO KNOW OUR CREATOR AND TO DISCOVER OUR DESTINY THAT IS UNIQUE TO HUMAN BEINGS
Every natural, innate desire in us corresponds to an object that satisfies that desire. But there exists in us which nothing in time, nothing on earth, no creature can satisfy. Therefore there must exist something more than earth, creatures and time which can satisfy that desire. This something is God. Are we thirsty? God gave us Dr. Pepper Are we hungry? God gave us fajitas Do we desire sex? God gave us marriage.
But what do I do with this desire I have, this longing to know why I was created and what my purpose is on earth? Nothing on earth can satisfy that desire! When we have accumulated all that the world offers us, WE STILL ARE LEFT EMPTY — WANTING MORE!! My dog doesn’t lay awake at night asking, “Why am I here?” Cats don’t sit on the porch full of inner angst as to their purpose in life. Monkeys don’t stare at bananas and say, “Is that all there is?”
Michael Douglas , in an interview on the “E” television network, was asked what he lacked in life after experiencing fame and riches. “Peace”, he said, ” I don’t have any peace in my heart .” We must reason by appeal, not compel with this argument. ” Are you really happy with temporal things ?” Atheist Jean-Paul Sartre admitted that ” there comes a time when one asks, even of Shakespeare and Beethoven, `Is that all there is ?'” Hedonist, Utilitarian John Stuart Mill , one of the shallowest (though clever) minds in the history of philosophy said, ” It is better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a pig satisfied .” Blaise Pascal, a 17th Century Mathematician, described this desire this way: ” There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man .” St. Augustine put it this way, ” Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in thee .”
GOD HAS SET ETERNITY IN OUR HEARTS!
You have a destiny and a purpose! Almighty God created you for a reason. You are not a monkey or evolved sea ooze; you are an eternal soul created in the image of God!
REASON NUMBER THREE — FINALLY, WHERE IS ATHEISM WHEN IT HURTS?
Atheists love to attack Christians when bad things happen to good people. When the twin towers exploded and disintegrated, the atheists howled, “Where is your God?”; “Why did God allow all those Christians to die?” That’s a good question. After the Oklahoma City tragedy, I watched a memorial service on C-Span with all the families in attendance. Dr. Billy Graham stood up and faced a sea of hurting families holding pictures and stuffed animals and looking for hope. Dr. Graham cleared his throat and said, “Many of you want answers. Why did God allow this? Today I must tell you that I don’t know. I don’t have those answers; only God does. But I will say this: I would rather have Jesus Christ filling me with peace and comfort at a time of tragedy than to be alone . I would rather know His love and feel His strong arms around me than to be in despair. And I would rather have a calm assurance that one day I will see my loved ones again in heaven, than live with a hollow dread.”
ATHEISTS AND EVOLUTIONISTS CAN ONLY OFFER US INSTINCT, DESPAIR AND EMPTINESS
If they are right, then we are just animals that live by instinct. There are no standards of right or wrong, there is no purpose to life; we are just animals created by accident, and we disappear at death into nothingness. How would you like an evolutionist to comfort you at the funeral of a loved one. “Sorry; they are gone forever, but they were only an animal anyway.” Oh, but if God created me in His image, I have a destiny, a hope and a future! And even if my loved ones die, I will see them again at the feet of Jesus! Hallelujah!!! BUT JIM, WHAT CAN I DO TO FIGHT EVOLUTION? Bertrand Russell, the famous skeptic, said, “Most Christians would rather die than think; in fact, most do.” Would you like to be a “thinking” Christian?
ASK YOUR PROFESSORS THE TOUGH QUESTIONS, STUDY SCIENCE, KNOW YOUR BIBLE AND NEVER GIVE UP
“Sir, do you really believe that we are the result of an explosion of cosmic, mysterious gasses; that we are descendants of monkeys; that we were not created by an intelligent designer? And I need more of an answer than “billions and millions of years” please. Don’t be a lazy, cowardly Christian. Confront this poison from hell head-on!
I recently heard the words of an old Gospel hymn:
Harder yet may be the fight,
Right may often yield to might,
Wickedness awhile may reign,
Satan’s cause may seem to gain,
Oh, but there is a God that rules above,
With hand of power and heart of love,
And if I am right, He’ll fight my battle,
I shall have peace some day.
by Charles Tindley
“Beams of Heaven”, 4th stanza
You may not be as smart as your teachers, BUT GOD WILL FIGHT YOUR BATTLE Godless evolution may seem to reign BUT GOD WILL FIGHT YOUR BATTLE You may be intimidated and scared BUT GOD WILL FIGHT YOUR BATTLE You may not have 3 PHD’s on your wall BUT GOD WILL FIGHT YOUR BATTLE
IF ALMIGHTY GOD BE FOR US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?
Pray with me that God will one day help our schools all over America to “know the truth, and that the truth will set them free”! Amen.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, so that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have eternal life.” — John 3:16
