God's Word Versus Man's Word

Tap on any Scripture passage listed below to see the passage and read my comments. 

God's Words are true.  My observations and applications of God's Words may or may not be accurate.

TRUST God's Word!

Genesis 1:1 - God CREATED Everything

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."


I Believe in God

Modern "Science" insists that God does NOT exist.  This BELIEF is known as EVOLUTIONISM, which stands in contrast to CREATIONISM.

CREATIONISM

It is simple.  You cannot have a "creation" without a "Creator."  When I OBSERVE the world that is about me: both living and non-living things; things on earth and things in the heavens; I see ORDER.  I see systems that work in perfect harmony with other systems, just like they had been created to work that way.

I believe that the creation was accomplished as it is described in the Bible.  I believe that God chose to create everything in 6 literal (evening and morning) days and then He was finished.  

I Believe We Have a Purpose

I believe that God made us for His own pleasure as He had made all things for His own pleasure.  (Revelation 4:11)  This begs a question: "Am I bringing God (my Creator) pleasure?"  The question is vital, because that is my purpose.

I Believe We are Accountable to the Creator

Since God has Created us, He is our OWNER.  We belong to Him.  Since God is Creator, He makes the rules.  We should seek to know them and follow them.

I Was Not There

I openly admit the obvious, making ZERO claims that I can PROVE what I believe.  This is because I am HONEST.  I was not there to OBSERVE Creation, therefore, believing it by faith.  It is a religious belief.  It is NOT science.

People that believe that everything was created by God are called "Creationists."

Creationism is a STORY about the past that begins WITH God.

EVOLUTIONISM

People that believe that everything is nothing more than an accident are called "Evolutionists."

Evolutionism is also a STORY about the past that begins WITHOUT God.

Evolutionism is also FAITH.  It is NOT science, either.  Evolution currently teaches that the "big bang" that started everything happened "roughly 13.7 billion years ago".  When I was in high school in the 1970s, it was only 5 Billion years.  It keeps getting farther and farther away!

Evolution insists that everything started quite accidentally and that ALL of life EVOLVED "miraculously" from a single cell that resulted from some chemical "soup" about 14 billion years ago.

That is NOT Science.  No one was there.  No one OBSERVED it.

I cannot comprehend this, but Evolutionists look at the world around them; a world with ORDER and believe it all came from a super-big explosion billions of years ago.  I have seen some explosions and they all resulted in destruction.  I've never observed an explosion resulting in construction. 

Evolutionists do NOT Believe We Have a Purpose

How could there be any purpose to life?  It is all accidental.

Evolutionists do NOT Believe Man is Accountable 

There is no basis for moral law.  There is no basis for morality.  There is no right or wrong.  There is ONLY power.  The most powerful people control things, and they make the rules.

They have what I call their own "Golden Rule".  They've got the gold (power) so they make the rules.

No God.  No right or wrong.  They can steal and cheat and murder and abuse other human beings and it is NOT "wrong."  Because there is NO GOD to say it is wrong.

They Were Not There

I openly admit the obvious, making ZERO claims that I can PROVE what I believe (Creationism).  This is because I am HONEST.  I was not there to OBSERVE Creation, therefore, believing it by faith.  It is a religious belief.  It is NOT science.

However, Evolutionists INSIST that their story is TRUE.

They even claim that their beliefs are "SCIENCE", making remarks such as this:

"Creationism is only Religious Belief, Evolutionism is Scientific Fact."

Evolution is a RELIGIOUS "FAITH" where man worships only Himself, which, by the way, is as old as the garden of Eden.  It is NOT science.

I Believe in Science, Too

I should clarify that I believe in REAL SCIENCE, which MUST be subject to the scientific method.  The word science simply means knowledge.

Psalm 139:14-16 - We were Created SPECIAL

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them."


Fearfully & Wonderfully Made!

I was made "fearfully made".  The word "fear" means to be in awe, to revere, to honor or to respect.  It is akin to "astonishment".  It is to be "wowed".

I was "wonderfully made."  This word means to be distinct, separated, distinguished.

The meaning is that I revere the magnificence of the Creator while understanding He has made me SPECIAL.

The Bible teaches that man was given authority over ALL of God's creation, having been made in the "image" of God.

There are so many aspects of the WONDERFUL ways we were made; consider just one of them: homeostasis.

Homeostasis refers to stability, balance, or equilibrium within a cell or the body. It is an organism’s ability to keep a constant internal environment. Homeostasis is an important characteristic of living things. Keeping a stable internal environment requires constant adjustments as conditions change inside and outside the cell. The adjusting of systems within a cell is called homeostatic regulation. Because the internal and external environments of a cell are constantly changing, adjustments must be made continuously to stay at or near the set point (the normal level or range). Homeostasis can be thought of as a dynamic equilibrium rather than a constant, unchanging state.

Just one of the elements of homeostasis is our body's immune system.

One of the ways that our health can become compromised and eventually could result in death is via infectious diseases.

Our immune system is the Creator's design for the body to physiologically defend itself from infectious diseases.

How Can You Avoid Becoming Ill or Dying from an Infectious Disease?

I would suggest that you maintain the following seven things:

  1. Drink pure water.
  2. Eat clean food.
  3. Breathe fresh air.
  4. Get regular exercise.
  5. Get regular sunlight.
  6. Avoid chemicals.
  7. Enjoy life.

If your immune system is strong, your body will fight off all disease via the mechanism the Creator has provided.

A healthy body equals a healthy immune system, and having a healthy heart (emotionally) also boosts your immune system.

When your immune system is functioning properly (because you have healthy habits), your body's white blood cells literally "eat" infection.  In addition, your healthy body will manufacture antibodies that also fight foreign microbes and poisons.

A Cure for the "Common Cold"?

If your body did not defend itself from infections, you would die.  In what is known as "germ theory", it is commonly accepted that the common cold is a result of a viral infection.  Virologists suggest that this virus continually "mutates" and that we "never get the same cold twice."

If you accept this, then you must also accept that the body makes its own cure for the common cold every time you "catch it."

Romans 3:4 - God NEVER Lies

"God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged."


I'll Stand on the Firm Ground of God's Word

I believe the Bible is absolute TRUTH.

If any MAN states any thing that is in opposition to God's Word, either the man is wrong or God is wrong.

I think I'll stay with God on such cases.

Evolution is Real

Evolution is most simply defined as "change." 

If anything is changing ... it is "Science"

"Science" is definitely evolving.

If a man says (a) one thing one day and (b) another thing another day and then (c) another thing another day and then (d) another thing another day ... which "thing" are you going to believe is true?

In this multiple choice question, I want to see the added (e) for "none of the above" and I'll choose that answer.

1 Timothy 6:20-21 - True Science is NEVER in opposition with GOD's TRUTH

"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and the oppositions of science falsely so called: which some professing have erred concerning the faith."


Beware of False Science

Science means "knowledge".  Science refers to what we may "KNOW."

People are fallible and all scientists are ...  people.

  • They OFTEN disagree with one another.
  • They OFTEN oppose each other.
  • They ALMOST ALWAYS oppose God.

Suspiciously, they VEHEMENTLY OPPOSE the idea, concept or belief in a CREATOR.

It is like they are actually AGAINST the Creator.

Since that is the case, we should EXPECT that they are not fundamentally and necessarily seeking the TRUTH.  They are most fundamentally and necessarily in OPPOSITION to God.

DON'T BE GULLIBLE

A person wearing a white lab coat (a "scientist") is first and foremost ... a person wearing a white lab coat.

They are limited in their knowledge and want you to BELIEVE what they say is true, even when they KNOW that they CANNOT prove it.

This is Religion 101.

Proverbs 1:7 - Knowledge BEGINS with Reverence for God

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledgebut fools despise wisdom and instruction."


Where does KNOWLEDGE begin?

If there is a God, it begins with God. Period.

If there is no God, knowledge is whatever the most powerful people say it is.  Period.

All Knowledge is Built upon a Foundation

The foundation of knowledge must necessarily start with the beginning.

"In the Beginning, God" or "In the Beginning, NO God".  A third foundation is not possible.  Either God is or God isn't.

Whichever Foundation You Stand Upon, it is by FAITH

It cannot be KNOWN via the traditionally accepted scientific method, because there is NO man that was there when it happened.

If Your Foundation is FAULTY, What Does that Say About Your Superstructure?

When you are going to build a great structure, you'd better have first laid a great foundation, otherwise your whole structure will be at risk of collapse.

What About Math?

If I start with the ASSUMPTION that one plus one equals five (1+1=5), what hope do I have over ever coming up with the correct mathematical calculations?

What About Science?

If the Universe is the Result of an Intelligent CREATION

... I should expect to see CREATION.

If I start with the ASSUMPTION that God CREATED everything and that everything has order and purpose, then I can proceed with looking for order and purpose in everything in order to obtain KNOWLEDGE.

I should see order in the world ... everywhere.  Is that what I see?

If the Universe is the Result of a Cosmic EXPLOSION

... I should not even expect to be here.

Try this experiment yourself.  Take anything and BLOW IT UP and you get DISORDER.

If I believe that the universe is a result of a cosmic explosion, everything should be torn to shreds.

And people claim to believe in Evolution.  It seems to me like they simply don't want to accept that there is a God that Created Everything.

 

Proverbs 9:10 - Wisdom BEGINS with Reverence for God

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding."


KNOWLEDGE vs. WISDOM

Knowledge and Wisdom are related, but they are not the same thing.

  • You can have knowledge without wisdom.
  • You cannot have wisdom without knowledge.

Knowledge is simply what you know. Wisdom is how you live.

  • Knowledge is cognition.
  • Wisdom is volition.

Wisdom is acting in a way that is consistent with what you know.

To be "foolish" is to act in a way that is not congruent with what you know.   This is why the Proverbs in the Bible puts foolish people  in contrast to wise people.

Jesus said that the wise man builds his house upon a rock and the foolish man builds his house upon the sand.

Both the wise man and the foolish man had KNOWLEDGE of the existence of storms.   

  • The wise man built his house upon a rock because he acted appropriately according to his knowledge.
  • The foolish man built his house upon the sand because he inappropriately according to his knowledge.

Lesson: Be Wise, Act Wisely or Don't be a Fool.
