Despite all of the alleged scientific language hype we hear today, the theory of evolution (which really isn’t scientific) is only an excuse for man not to believe in the existence of God. In a nutshell, evolution teaches that matter working with matter over billions of years will turn into something or someone. Can you imagine a watch evolving? The crystals, face, hands, and all just “falling” into place without the hands of the watchmaker? Sounds irrational, doesn’t it? Did it ever occur to you that the hands, wrist, and arm that the watch is on is much more complex than the watch itself? Does not your rational mind then demand a designer for the body?

The Bible teaches creation. Man is fundamentally different from the animal kingdom. Creation itself declares the Creator, and demonstrates His eternal power and Godhead. Simply stated, man chooses to believe in evolution because the only alternative is to believe in God. Yet, why wouldn’t a person believe in God? John writes because they love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil. It’s amazing how we prefer unforgiveness to forgiveness; deception rather than honesty; lies instead of truth.

Reader, Isaiah 40:26 exhorts you to “lift your eyes on high and behold who has created all” that you see. “The everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator” commanded, “Let there be …” “and they were created.” He formed the mountains that you can climb up and ski down. He created the wind and all the wind currents. Malachi 2:10 asks, “Has not one God created us?”

Yes, God exists whether you believe in Him or not. However, to simply acknowledge that you believe in God only proves that you’re not a fool. The demons believe in God too! Only the Bible (may I say) places a face on the Creator. The Godhead (Elohim) created all things through Jesus Christ, and “by Him all things were created… All things were created through Him and for Him.” For His pleasure we were created, to have fellowship with God.

When Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden, they hid themselves from God. God asked them, “Where are you?” Not because God didn’t know where they were, but to cause them to see that sin disturbed their relationship with Him. Where are you with Jesus Christ today? You see, sin separates you from God. Sin is a debt that must be paid for, and until it is, at best you can only acknowledge “the god who is somewhere up there, whoever or whatever you call him, and I’m down here.”

I’ve got good news for you, great news in fact. The sin issue has been paid for by Jesus Christ, and His resurrection from the dead is proof that payment has been made. Our Creator took our place on the cross so that we could be reunited with Him in fellowship. Believe the facts of the gospel, and receive the Lord of the gospel. Walk with the Author and Finisher of your faith, and rejoice in the new creation that He declares you are.

Don’t “monkey” with educated, Christ-rejecting rhetoric that tells you that you’re nothing more than a highly evolved animal. Calvary demonstrates God’s love, and the resurrection confirms His triumph over death. Believe and receive your Creator today as your Lord and Savior, to receive forgiveness of sin and eternal life. Don’t trust your eternal soul to the folly of evolution, but entrust it to Jesus Christ and be eternally secure.
