In the last post, I briefly touched on the cultural hype of the new fossil discovery where a dinosaur was found with preserved feathers and tissue. Read that if you haven’t!
So why do people believe in evolution? Isn’t it clear through creation that God has spoken and created? Let’s take a look at Romans 1 for the answer:
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. (vs. 20-21)
We see in the first part of these verses that God’s unseen attributes are seen in creation. Because of the massiveness of creation we can see God’s eternal power. In the complexity of it we see His glorious divine nature.
Next Paul tells us that because of these things they’re without excuse. Unbelievers experience God’s creation, just not in a salvific way. People behold God’s creation every day, and they don’t give Him thanks for it.
So why do they reject it? While many people reject for a myriad of reasons, the core of it comes down to that they’re hearts are darkened by dishonoring God and giving credit to something other than Him.
For those thinking of throwing stones and saying rude, uncaring things due to another so-called “win” for creationists, don’t. We need to speak the truth in love. When we post replies to these topics, we must post in grace and truth. Nobody cares about your opinion if your response is disrespectful.
So respond in truth, but season it with salt.
