God or Genetics?

October 3, 2018 by Dr. Jack Graham

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
—Genesis 1:1

Mankind…are we the product of natural selection, the survival of the fittest? Or are we the handy work of a personal God who created us individually?

It is the Bible, not Darwin, that tells us not only about the origin of the species, but the destiny of the species. Origins are important because the fact is, how we got here and why we are here greatly affects where we are going.

Evolution is the attempt to explain the origin of life without a Creator. I reject it for the following three reasons:

Number one, I reject it on the basis of logic. Evolution theorizes that nothing times nobody equals everything. Many intelligent and well-trained scientists are moving away from this theory. Not because they are Bible believers, but because they realize that there is a lack of evidence to support the theory.

I also reject this theory on the basis of morality. If there is no God, then there is no need for morality. When you begin teaching people that they came from animals, it won’t be long before they start acting like animals.

Finally, I reject evolution for theological reasons. The Word of God simply doesn’t teach it. Be careful about trying to accommodate the Scripture to this theory. I don’t believe you can have it both ways and remain consistent.
You are not here by accident today. This isn’t by chance. I don’t believe that anything has ever happened by chance, but by the governing, guiding hand of God.

God created you to know Him. He set eternity in your heart.
