The other night I found a video clip on YouTube of Mark Lowry. In that clip he made a very interesting and true statement. He said, “I would be an atheist too, if I had that much faith.” I always marvel at how atheists ridicule us Christians for professing faith in the Lord Jesus, yet they have to have a lot more faith than we do to believe in evolution. Atheists actually believe that nothing created everything; that is much harder to believe than God created the universe.
You see, Mr. Coyote, you asked for evidence; I have a whole world full of evidence. Romans 1:20 says, “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.” The Bible says that you are without excuse because you have seen the evidence of God’s existence in creation.
I don’t know if you have picked up on this yet, but creationists have something going for them that evolutionists don’t. There are no missing parts to creationism. However, there is one huge part of evolutionism that can never be found. That missing part is an example of something evolving into another thing.
Birds are born as birds. Cats are born as cats. Monkeys are born as monkeys. Humans are born as humans. When is the last time that a zookeeper has shown up for work to find out that what was a monkey the day before is now a human? The truth is it has never happened and it never will. If the universe evolved, why did it all of a sudden stop evolving? If evolution is a fact of life, why is it not still happening?
If you came into my house and saw the oil painting that is on my living room wall and I told you that it started out a hundred years ago as one splotch of black paint in the middle of a paper napkin, you would have reason to think that I was a lunatic. There is a reason Psalm 14:1 says, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.” Saying that the universe evolved out of nothing is like saying that a complex oil painting evolved out of one tiny dot of ink on a paper napkin; it is preposterous. The complexity of the work says that it was carefully and painstakingly made. You, my friend, are fearfully and wonderfully made; act like it (Psalm 139:14).
You are the one that needs to open up his eyes and truly see. Years ago a secular songwriter wrote, “I see skies of blue…clouds of white/ Bright blessed days…dark sacred nights/ And I think to myself…what a wonderful world.” Please, take off the blindfold of sin and look at all the blessings that God has given you.
God loves this wretched, old world so much that He sent His one and only Son to die on an old, rugged cross for you and me. Isaiah 53:5 says that “He was wounded for [your] transgressions…and with His stripes [you can be] healed.” Please turn from all sin and trust Jesus as Lord of your life today. I promise it will be the best decision you ever make.
