As many of you know we just returned from Puerto Rico having to handle the passing unto glory of my mother-in-law. Her death got me thinking about the other end of the spectrum, especially yesterday while traveling back and hearing the conversation between two young folks talking about evolution.
For a True Christian, there can be no walking the line on this issue. God is either whom He declares Himself to be in His Holy Word; Psalm 33:6, Isaiah 42:5, John 1:1-3, Colossians 1:16, Hebrews 11:3, Revelation 4:11, or a BOLDFACE LIAR and not worthy of worship. Those that would incorporate the theory of evolution ideals into their beliefs are either ignorant (lack knowledge) or refuse the truth.
God’s Word is truth, Evolution is a theory and up until the early 20th century a theory was considered nothing more than simple speculation. Modernists have worked hard to change the definition to have more substance but the truth is the meat of the matter is still nothing more than speculation.
Whose WORDS are you trusting in today?

New Science a Game Changer on Trans Sports
by Tony Perkins
One of the very first things Joe Biden has promised to do as president is abolish girls’ sports. It’s a ludicrous thing to make a priority, but the former Obama VP insists — like most liberals — that “transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time.” It’s the fair thing to do, Biden argues. But is it? New research in the British Journal of Sports Medicine says no…
Among all the other wonderful blessings of Christmas, at its core, this season is a celebration of the gift of life through the birth of a baby. Of course, any time a baby is born it’s a glorious event worthy of a decent party. My wife and I have 4 children, and our friends and family have greeted each birth with joy and excitement, and rightly so. ..
Anchors of my Faith
By Steve Gallagher
For many of us, this has been a year of uncertainty, chaos, and confusion. At times it feels like our faith is being attacked from every side. A global pandemic, racial, political, and spiritual division, and unrest all around us all conspire to make us doubt the validity and relevance of our faith. If that wasn’t enough, opponents of Christianity take advantage of every opportunity to reinforce those doubts and publicly mock and attack believers.
This week on The Sword and The Trowel, Tom Ascol and Jared Longshore welcome Dr. Brian Thomas, a Research Associate at the Institute for Creation Research, on the show to discuss Darwinism, Creation, religion vs. science and how we can help others understand the truth we know from Genesis 1:1.
In my youth I loved to go out into the mountains of the Appalachian Trail and hike for days. Stretching from Georgia to Maine one can find some of the best hiking trails in the US there and truly (although at the time I did not realize it) get closer to God through creation. There were many times we came upon forks or crossroads and relied upon the well marked trail system to guide us along the correct path.
Life however is not so easy. Rarely do we find well defined trail markers along the path of life. So how do we navigate. Well if I listen to some of my friends its all a crap shoot, fate or chance. In other words in the above illustration they believe you have a 50/50 chance of doing well on either path.
King David here in Psalm 25 had other ideas. He says (paraphrasing):
v. 1-3 Describes trusts God and His sovereignty
v. 4-5 Prays for guidance in paths
v. 6-7 Prays for forgiveness
v. 8-11 Describes the goodness and faithfulness of God
v. 12-15 Describes reasons for fearing the Lord
v. 16-21 Prays for protection and deliverance
v. 22 Prays for Israel
David recognized that relying on his own heart was not a good thing to direct his paths (think future, think life decisions, etc.)
I do not know where everyone is in there life walk today. What I do know that there is never a bad time to be like David and have fellowship time with the Lord. Ask Him for guidance by praying like David: Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. 5 Guide me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long. (AMP)
It is presupposed in the very act of God creating. It is affirmed in God’s promises of future fulfillment of his promises. It is stated explicitly by Jesus prior to his ascension, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth” (Matt. 28:18). It is the basis of the eternal security of all who trust Jesus for their salvation (Rom. 8:31-39). It is the absolute, unqualified, insurmountable sovereignty of God. It identifies God as God.
There is perhaps no place in Scripture where this is made more abundantly clear than the book of Isaiah, and brought into astonishing focus in Isaiah 44:24-45:7.
How often I have heard folks say “ya but you can’t prove God is real” and then they will turn around and fully embrace evolution. Seriously I have to wonder sometimes who has more faith Hebrews 11:1 🙂
The following 10 essential articles from ICR show (and for me prove) that the complexity of nature is best explained not by Darwin but by an divine intelligent designer.
It only takes a quick glance to see how animals and insects display God’s excellent design. But what happens when we take a closer look? In these top 10 essential reads, you’ll discover the elaborate engineering found in creatures from the trees to the seas.
