And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.”
Why should we reject evolutionary ideas? Besides the fact that they are unproven scientifically, the bigger problem is that evolution takes God out of the picture and turns this world into a pointless and random universe. It’s important not only to reject evolution, but to know why we should reject evolution.
We should reject it first for logical reasons. It takes more faith and stretching of the mind to believe the absurdity that life spontaneously began than it does to believe that a powerful and purposeful God created it. The order and complexity we see in creation argues for a Creator.
We should also reject evolutionary theory for moral reasons. If we deny that we are created by a God who made us in His image, then human life has no ultimate value. We’re just animals without a purpose. This is the view of life that Communism thrived on, and we can see what happens when God is removed from people’s thinking and life means nothing more than the survival of the fittest and strongest. People deny God so they can carry out their evil plans, or so they won’t feel guilty about their sins and pleasure-seeking. Taking God out of the creation leads to moral decline and ruin.
Most important of all, we should reject evolution in all its forms for biblical reasons. The Bible clearly states that we are created by God, which makes evolution contrary to what God’s Word teaches. That should be reason enough for believers.
As Christians, our faith is built upon God being who He says He is. You were created by God’s loving hand, which means you are of infinite value to Him. Let that truth give new meaning and purpose to everything you do today.
YOU ARE NOT THE PRODUCT OF RANDOM EVOLUTIONARY FORCES! EVERYTHING YOU ARE AND EVERYTHING YOU DO MATTERS TO GOD.
