Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
Despite the Bible’s clear teaching of God’s creative work, there remains a strong denial of creation in the world today. Many people continue to deny that the heavens and the earth are the handiwork of a personal and powerful God. They believe the answers to our origins are found in science.
But the truth is that true Scripture and true science never clash. There’s no contradiction between what God says and the realities of science.
However, I do believe that science must be subservient to Scripture, for a very important reason. Science is constantly changing. New theories and ideas are being proposed, revised, and discarded all the time. That’s why scientific theories about how the world came into existence must bow to the constant and eternal truth of the Bible.
Evolution is, of course, the main opponent of creation. The problem is that evolution is simply a theory. And yet, despite this most obvious fact, many people teach it and believe it as if it were a proven reality. But the theory of evolution is not scientifically true because none of it has been proven, and it is increasingly rejected by many brilliant and capable scientists.
The basic theory of evolution says that we evolved from a one-cell organism to fish, then amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, and eventually man. But this is more science fiction than science, and the history of evolutionary teaching is so full of fraud and fantasy that no person in their right mind could accept it blindly as absolute truth.
Science is always looking for the starting point of life. But we already know where it is, in the opening chapters of the book of Genesis. Don’t be fooled or influenced by the pseudo-scientific fantasies and false theories of this world. You’re on solid ground scientifically when you stand on the truth of God’s Word.
TRUE SCIENCE AND TRUE SCRIPTURE NEVER CLASH.
