Evolution is matter of faith, not science!

Note: The evolution I am talking about is macroevolution.

Evolution is now considered an accepted form of science and is taught in every non-Christian school. This is a great moral issue in society, along with abortion; euthanasia, homosexuality etc… It was made-up to take the place of common sense science because of pride. Like the tower of Babel, man wants to take God out of the picture, deny that he ever existed, even when evidence demands that there had to be a mind behind all creation. However, evolution should never be counted as science.

Let us first look at the scientific method, before we talk before about evolution. The scientific method’s definition, according to Wikipedia, states that, “scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of knowledge that has been REPEATEDLY CONFIRMED through OBSERVATION and EXPERIMENT.”¹ Wikipedia also states under “Essential Criteria”, that, A would-be theory that makes no observable predictions is not a useful theory. Predictions not sufficiently specific to be tested are similarly not useful. In both cases, the term “theory” is hardly applicable.” ¹ It is so obvious that evolution runs on imprecision when science runs on precision.

Furthermore, Stephen Jay Gould, a respected paleontologist, evolutionary biologist, and historian of science, had this to say: “Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact.”² He then goes on to say this, “Moreover, “fact” does not mean “absolute certainty…The second and third arguments for evolution—the case for major changes—do not involve direct observation of evolution in action. They rest upon inference, but are no less secure for that reason…We must infer them from results that still surround us: living and fossil organisms for evolution, documents and artifacts for human history, strata and topography for geology.”² which means that evolution is not something that we know happened with “absolute certainty.” We will talk later about the “…living and fossil organisms for evolution…”² that evolutionists say support their view. Therefore, evolution cannot be counted as a theory or science; there was no observation or experimentation.

Another interesting thing that evolutionists may use at creationists is Karl Popper’s philosophy of falsifiability. The definition is this: “Falsifiability or refutability is the trait of a statementhypothesis, or theory  ³: and “…a theory should be considered scientific if, and only if, it is falsifiable.”4 But, wouldn’t that mean that Newton’s law of motion and the theory of universal gravitation (I use the word ‘theory’ in the scientific way) would not be science since it can’t be proven false? What a tizzy our world would be in.

Then, what about the evolutionists who like to credit their so-called ‘theory’, with fossils, especially about transitional fossils? Let us use the famous “Lucy.” It is the most complete set of skeleton found for this certain type of supposedly link between ape and monkey. How did they know what kind of creature it was by just a few fragments of bones?

To find this out, I had the opportunity to e-mail John “Jack” R. Horner, one of the best-known paleontologists in America, asking two questions. The following is our conversation:

Me: I was wondering. How do paleontologists know what kind of creature you just have dug up only a few fragments of bones, and not the full skeleton?

Jack: We can’t always identify a creature with tiny fragments, but we do sometimes just because many skeletal bones look different from one animal to another, and we compare what we find with other animal skeletons found in similar age rock.  For example if I found a few small bones of an animal from a particular rock formation here in Montana, I would compare them to other bones from the same area that I have in our collection.  But, many times we don’t find enough to identify, and sometimes the creature is a new species so we don’t have anything to compare it with.

Me: Okay…so, if you are lucky, you can find a complete set of skeletons in the same rock age and compare fragments with that full set?

Jack: Yes, although we seldom find complete sets.

In the case of “Lucy”, which is the most complete set of skeleton found consisting of only forty-seven bones, there was no complete set of skeleton found; therefore, there was nothing to compare those few fragments with. No one can then say that it was a half-ape and half-human. It was either fully an ape, or fully human.

Alas, we reach the Big Bang Theory, the core of evolution, as it explains the beginnings of evolution, if it were a theory, why are the results not reproducible? This is the crux of this evolution religion. With no prove that this “bang” happened, the rest of the evidence that macro-evolution happened can be thrown out the window. Because, the foundation of this religion never happened, macro-evolution never happened.

Why has there never been another record of something exploding and creating another earth in the process? Because it never happened! Let’s say, the evolutionists say that this big bang happened in another galaxy, but, we can’t see it. Doesn’t that take faith to believe that it happened too?

The evolutionists like to make fun at creationist, because we believe that God was always there and that He created the earth out of ex niliho. But, don’t the evolutionists need as much faith as we do to believe that the world came about by chance? Evolution is just another religion where God is taken out of the picture because of man’s pride. The Bible says of these unbelieving scientists in Romans 1:25, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Creation shows that even the smallest cell is a complex being, needing an omnipotent Creator. Clearly stated in the Bible, God was the One who created our world. But, man’s pride created evolution to take God out of the picture. Evolution is not science. It is another religion.

What About the Law

This was preached by my pastor. It was to answer a question that was asked by one of the youth: “Why do we keep some laws, and don’t keep others?”

WHAT ABOUT THE LAW?
James 2
Back in the 12th Century AD, Moses Mäi-mon-ï-des – a preeminent medieval Jewish
philosopher and scholar – wrote a fourteen-volume work called Mishneh Torah. In that work, he
recorded and classified 613 Old Testament commands. While there is still much discussion as to which laws are:
1. From the LORD God.
2. From the Jewish Rabbis.
However, our purpose is not to discuss how many laws there really are – and the
reason is simply because it does NOT matter!
Why? The reason is stated in …
Verse 10 “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he
is guilty of all.”
Bottom line, if we only break one law we are guilty of breaking it all!
Therefore, the question that was asked is a very good/important question. The question
was asked, “Of the law in the Old Testament, why do we follow some parts of it, (i.e. the Ten
Commandments) but not others like eating unclean animals.”
In answering this question there are three points I want to mention:
I. The divisions of the law.
When it comes to the laws of God that are found in the Old Testament, we must notice
that all of the laws will fall into one of three categories.
A. The civic law – i.e. laws concerning the Jewish nation.
When the LORD God chose the nation of Israel to be His own people, they were
set up to operate as a “theocracy”.
1. The Jewish historian Josepheus first used this word in the 1st Century AD.

2. The meaning was simply that the Jews were under the direct government of the LORD God himself – i.e. the nation was in all things subject to the will of their invisible King.

3. Therefore, all the people were the servants of Jehovah, who ruled over their public and private affairs, communicating to them His will through those men who were called to be His prophets. In other words, the civic law had to do with how they were to live together as a nation of God’s people. These included God’s laws concerning:

1. Murder – theft – immorality.

4. Plowing – sowing – reaping.

5. Misdemeanors of all kinds.
These were the civil laws that the LORD God gave to the nation of Israel – and to
break these laws carried penalties which varied from paying fines to being put to
death.
B. The ceremonial law – i.e. laws concerning the Jewish religion.
These laws were given so that men might have a right relationship with God – i.e.
these laws dealt with:
1. The rite of circumcision.
2. The keeping of the Sabbaths and the holy days.
3. The offering of the sacrifices in the Temple.
4. The keeping of a strict diet – i.e. both food and drink.
The Apostle Paul made it very clear that all of these things found their fulfillment
in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Colossians 2:13-17 “And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven
you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was
against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to
his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of
them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let no man therefore judge you in
meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the
sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of
Christ.”
This is why, when certain Jewish teachers said that Gentiles could not become
Christians without being circumcised (cf. Acts 15), the Apostle Paul took a strong
stand – and the Jewish church agreed – that Gentiles did NOT need to follow the
ceremonial law of the Jewish religion in order to be Christians.

Bottom line: After the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, men no longer have a
right relationship with God keeping the works of the law – rather, our relationship
with God is based on our faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on Calvary.
But it is important that we remember that, the ceremonial law was added because
of man’s transgression of …
C. The moral law – i.e. the Ten Commandments.
These are the ten law statements that the LORD God wrote with His finger on the
tables of stone (cf.Exodus 31:18) and gave to Moses. But not only were these
laws written on the tables of stone, notice in …
Romans 2:14-15 “For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by
nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law
unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts,
their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while
accusing or else excusing one another;”
Notice it now:
1. The civil laws do not apply to us since we are NOT citizens of Israel.
2. The ceremonial laws do not apply to us since Jesus Christ fulfilled all those things
that were required for men to have a right relationship with God.
3. However, the moral law still applies – so notice with me …
II. The requirements of the law.
The Bible says in …
Luke 10:25-28 “And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying,
Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in
the law? how readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy
God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all
thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered
right …”
You see, all of the moral law fills two categories – i.e. our relationship with God and with
men. Let’s look at the moral law in Exodus 20 …
A. Our relationship to God.

1. No other gods – cf.Exodus 20:3.
Remember, anything selfish desire that we put before obeying the will of
God is an idol (i.e. a god) that has taken God’s place in the throne room of
our heart.
2. No making of idols – cf.Exodus 20:4-6.
While this is certainly speaking of those statues of false deities that we see
all around us, we must remember that an idol is any physical thing that we
allow to become more important to us than obeying God.
a. Toys – i.e. computer games, movies, TV.
b. Investments – work.
c. Possessions – i.e. cars, houses, etc.
3. No taking His name in vain – cf.Exodus 20:7.
The proper name of God is JEHOVAH, a word expressive of His essential
being. And since God is infinitely holy, His name is holy – and it is to be
regarded as holy.
Therefore, to use His name as a curse/swear word – or, to use His name in
making a statement that is untrue – is to bring upon ourselves the wrath
and judgment of God.
4. Remember to honor Him – cf.Exodus 20:8-11.
The principle here is simply that one day a week is to be dedicated to the
worshipping and honoring of our God – i.e. it was to be a day of physical
rest so that men might give themselves to spiritual endeavors.
In the New Testament, that day of rest was changed from the Sabbath to
Sunday.
B. Our relationship to men.
1. No dishonoring parents – cf.Exodus 20:12.
The fact this moral law is still in effect today is clearly seen in the fact that
the Apostle Paul referred to it – cf.Ephesians 6:1-3; Colossians 3:20 – as
still being in force.
2. No committing murder – cf.Exodus 20:13.
3. No committing adultery – cf.Exodus 20:14.
4. No stealing – cf.Exodus 20:15.

5. No lying – cf.Exodus 20:16.
6. No coveting – cf.Exodus 20:17-18.
As we consider those moral laws, is there anyone here who has not broken at least one of
those commands? Of course, unless we have the IQ of a rock – or unless we are an
outright liar (NOTE: Rule # 9) – we will all confess that we fit in the statement of the
Apostle Paul in …
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
And that brings us to …
III. The purpose of the law.
Notice three things we need to understand concerning the purpose of the law:
A. Its revelation.
You see, when we are confronted with the demands/expectations of God’s moral
law – as we have just seen – we are brought face to face with the fact that we are
guilty sinners in the eyes of a holy God.
Romans 8:3 “For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through
the flesh …”
Because of the fact that ALL of us were born with a sin nature – i.e. a nature that
naturally rebels against God’s moral laws – there is no way that we could earn our
salvation by keeping the moral law of God.
That is the same conclusion the Apostle Paul came to in …
Romans 3:28 “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.”
Bottom line: The moral law of God could never cause us to have a right relationship with God; rather, the law of God can only condemn us a guilty sinners before
a holy God.
B. Its satisfaction.
Romans 8:3 “… God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and
for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:”
The best commentary on this passage is found in …

Isaiah 53:6 “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one
to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
2 Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no
sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
C. Its result.
When we see that we guilty of breaking God’s law – and when we understand that
Jesus Christ fulfilled the demands of the law by dying in our place – then we turn
in faith, trusting in Him as our Savior, so that …
Romans 8:4 “That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us …”
Conclusion
This is why the psalmist said in …
Psalm 19:7 “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul …”
And that is why the Apostle Paul said in …
Galatians 3:24-25 “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto
Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no
longer under a schoolmaster.”
1. The moral law of God has NEVER changed – and it is that law which brings us to
faith in Christ.
2. After we are saved, we are no longer under the moral law of God – rather, now as
believers in Jesus Christ, we walk in obedience to the indwelling Holy Spirit of
God.
