2Co 11:3 (ESV) But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
Satan has a very long time to develop his deceitfulness ..... and he has vast experience in making the absurd seem like great wisdom. However, we should not let ourselves be fooled so easily. We must make a choice as Christians to keep our eyes open that we do not fall under any delusions Satan throws our way.
This week many throughout the world are celebrating the man Charles Darwin and his speculation on the beginnings of the world and man. This concept he called evolution is now being taught to our children as fact and not theory. At the heart of this notion of Mr. Darwin's is that there is no Creator because life "just happened". It devalues human life, putting man on the same level as animals with words like "common ancestor".
Sadly some Christians are falling under this idealistic influence and many others do not see the necessity of denying this claim by Darwin and his followers as nothing more than another corrupt lie from the father of all lies, Satan.
Well, what does it matter anyway?????
It matters because, if the foundations of Creation (Genesis chapters 1 and 2), are false ..... then the Cornerstone that is God is nothing more than a lie. Then if God does not exist, and man was not created... he "just happened", then there is no need for a Savior.
But I am so glad that we are not something that "just happened", we , that is mankind, was created ...... and not just created, but formed by the hands of God himself. Isa 64:8 But now, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. And we were given the breath of life from God himself...Gen 2:7 then the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. ..............and that we are in need of a Savior, that is Jesus Christ the Son of God, born from a virgin, living a sinless life, and then becoming sin for all he died... was buried... and rose again! Showing the love and power of God throughout all times complete and fulfilled. (Amen!)
The Truth that is God and Jesus Christ is what gives man purpose in life. If you take away that fundamental axis to our existence you give us something far worse than a pack of lies. You give us nothing more than emptiness....
Job 15:31 Let him not trust in emptiness, deceiving himself, for emptiness will be his payment.
