The Big Lie
Hitler said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. . .” Well, in our modern scientific age we have a whole world of people who accept Charles Darwin’s theories of evolution & origins of life as fact. For over a hundred years those evolution theories have swept the world, & even permeated the Christian church. But there are some conservative thinkers who consider evolution to be “The Big Lie.”
Few people realize that when C. Darwin was dying in England, he denied his own theory; '. . . sitting up in bed . . . a look of agony came over his face as he said, “I was a young man with uninformed ideas, I threw out queries, suggestions, wondering all the time . . . To my astonishment the ideas (of evolution) took like wild-fire. People made a religion of them.”’ Afterwards he asked Lady Hope, a hospice friend, to preach to his other friends about; “Christ Jesus . . . and His Salvation. Is not that the best theme?” C. Darwin - from Voices from the Edge of Eternity, 1968 pgs. 247-248
Our god of this world adversary (Lucifer) knew, 1) long before Darwin that “monkeying” with origins in Genesis destroys the need for a Savior from sin. If there was no created Adam & Eve, and no fall into sin, then logically we need no Christ & His bloody atonement. Our adversary also knew, 2) that mythical interpretation of Genesis compromises ALL scripture – it's anybody’s guess what the rest of it means, if anything. Without the Genesis historical origin & fall into sin, logically we need NO church or its doctrines – which is where we are today in academia. (And they teach our kids to question our Biblical faith and value system.) Our adversary also knew, 3) that humans by nature are BIASED against God, and WANT to believe a fundamental LIE which releases them from the rules (10 Commandments, Christ’s words, etc.), and the authority of God.
Now ultimately evolution is a RELIGION based on FAITH because no one was there - not even a scientist . . . So the question of creation or evolution boils down to; do we WANT to believe God & Creation (there is plenty evidence – see www.answersingenesis.org *). And Abe Lincoln said, “That Book we should take as it is written & where we can’t take it by reason, take it by faith.” - OR – do we WANT to reject God & have faith (& religion) in Darwin’s theories? It appears that today’s proud humans typically do not WANT to believe the Bible & WEALTH of evidence for creation. They have said “evolution is a light on facts.” (The American Biology Teacher, Vol 35 pg. 129). Jesus Christ said, “I am the light of the world; he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John 8:12
-- Psalms 11: 3 “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
-- Proverbs 19:21 “Cease my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.”
-- John 5:46-47 "For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his
writings, how shall ye believe my words?” Jesus said that.
-- Romans 1:18, 20 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness. 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.”
So what difference does it make? Well today’s generation have confidence in Darwinism & stay away from God’s “hospital for sin sick humanity” - the Christian church. Many are adamant & hate the idea of religion – especially Christianity. Especially the latest youth culture . . . And the fruit of sin is increasing in the world. Look at the increase in crime, abortion, divorce, odd marriage concepts, family dysfunction & mayhem, mass murders, etc.. The world is falling apart at the seams.
Well, I believe God specializes in baffling & humbling the MINDS of men. (He zapped me – see “My Miracles” link 33). He could have taken millions of years to create the world & life, but to do it in six days just shows how great He is. He could have done it in six hours. I believe God wants us to make a stand for the WORD, not undermine it by accepting atheistic theories. And Jesus Christ made it clear that believers are blessed & go to an eternal heaven. Creation/Christ rejecters set themselves up for “Divine Judgments” (see link 167). To any evolutionist I ask; Are you saved, is your soul fireproof? See links 39 & 184, “What is Saved?”, and “Is Hell For Real?” Choose Jesus, He is Alive. And THAT is no LIE.
