With the Big Bang Theory, we have given ourselves the ability to look up at the sun and moon and stars and tell God “You didn’t build that!”, and then go on our merry way believing that the celestial bodies are the result of random processes and not the work of the Creator’s hands.
With the Theory of Evolution, we see every sort of seed-bearing plant, the trees that grow seed-bearing fruit, the swarms of fishes and other life in the waters, every sort of bird, the livestock, the small animals that scurry along the ground, the wild animals, and tell God “You didn’t build that!” We even deny our own creation by His hands, saying “You didn’t build me!” and go on our merry way.
But we fail to realize that with this belief in random processes we have become purposeless ourselves. Our only reason for existence becomes survival, which makes it hard to follow commands like “love your neighbor as yourself” when you believe that you are in direct competition with your neighbors.
In a universe that created itself, evil becomes a permanent part of nature instead of being ultimately resolved by the Creator. So even though we are now told to place our hope in man, there really becomes hopelessness in life.
How can we believe the Word of God is true if we are taught that its very beginning, the account of creation, is not? The Bible becomes allegory, mere guidance, that we can follow or reject as we see fit. We can then do what is right in our own eyes and follow a god of our own design and comfort.
We are prodded to continue moving forward hoping that these theories are correct, where “forward” insinuates that we are progressing and moving in the right direction. We hope that we are correct, because if we are not, there is a God, a Creator of all things, who will judge us at the end of our days, and that is a frightful thought.
But these theories support Satan’s style, for by believing them we begin to reject the authority of God our Creator. I would rather not give him that pleasure.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
- Psalm 19:1-4
