Hot Topics... Evolution
For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but He rested on the seventh day.
Exodus 20:11 (NIV)
Evolution has been a hot topic since Charles Darwin said men evolved from apes. Quickly, God's naysayers seized the moment to discredit biblical creation.
Many schools taught Darwinism as the truth, so Christians took it to the Supreme Court--and lost a fight of faith to faulty facts.
Science next proposed the Big Bang Theory, and the world eagerly adopted it. But later scientists refuted it.*
While man's biggest brains will never match God's, and our inventions are mere toys to Him, saints should not expect the world to get it.
So how can we honor Him and seek peace? Make your home an oasis of learning.
1. Regarding the ways and wonders of God, don't rely on the government or public school system. 'Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it' (Proverbs 22:6, NLT).
2. Regarding the Words of God: 'Impress Them on your children. Talk about Them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up' (Deuteronomy 6:6-7, NKJV).
