“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” (Romans 1:21)
It’s the simplest truth, taught to the littlest children: God created the whole world. It is the opening statement of the Holy Bible: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). This truth is foundational to our understanding of who God is, and in turn who we are. Mankind has had one of three responses to the biblical account of creation:
Some receive it as truth and accept God as Creator.
Some receive it as a possible truth and add God to their harem of higher powers.
Some outright reject it and deny the power, and often the existence of God.
The Bible calls those who reject the truth godless and wicked because there is proof of God in every tree, flower, mountain, and star and even in their mirror every morning. (Romans 1:18-20). From the highest heavens that man can see with a telescope to the smallest micro-cellular level of life, God’s fingerprint is clearly visible. You really have to stretch to deny creation by God. There’s too much evidence in favor of intelligent design and an intelligent Designer.
Charles Darwin, the father of evolutionary science admitted that it is “[extremely difficult] or rather [impossible to] conceive this immense and wonderful universe, including man” without being convicted of the existence of God. He said he felt “compelled to look to a First Cause” and as such even desired to be called a Theist (one who believes in God). Yet he abandoned that “strong conclusion” and devised the evolutionary theory that the world has received as an alternative to the truth. (Taken from a video lecture by Dr. David DeWitt). All that he could see around him convinced him of the existence of God, but his arrogance led him to reject God and “suppress the truth by [his] wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain . . . because God has made it plain” (Romans 1:18-19). His theory has lead millions of human souls away from God.
You and I chose what we believe. Are you making the right choice?
