For over one hundred years, give or take fifty, most students have been taught that evolution brought all of the species into existence including us. But if you buy a book like the Photo Ark and look at all of the colors and the range of species and everything that is even in just the amphibian branch of life…there is no way that our world has been around long enough to have brought that many different species into existence.
And that is just one branch of an enormous tree of life on this planet! The mind of God can think up all of those variations and differences but to even imagine that pure chance and natural selection is purely ludicrous. Even Darwin decided that there is no way to explain the eye in its formation because it has to work from the beginning or it isn’t an eye. There is no trial and error. God is the Creator and only He could come up with all of the diversity that is in the ocean and on land and under the ground. From an ant to an aardvark to a giant condor to the blue whale and everything that has been here on this Earth, from the largest to the smallest. Only God can do that.
Life on this planet is diverse in the extreme, yet every species has a specific place that they thrive in and a specific niche that they fill in the natural world. God designed all of this so that we would realize that chance just can’t produce the awesome world that we live in. Why did God do this? Because, as He said in the Bible, man cannot live without the knowledge of the Creator.
I have been reminded of the great love that God has for each of us, and to say that it was startling would be an understatement. It brought me out of a dream at three this morning. God does have a way of doing that sometimes.
When you feel or hear His calling in your heart please don’t turn away. He is the Creator and He knows you better than anyone…even yourself. John 3:16 tells us that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but will have eternal life”. The key words here are “God so loved the world” and “whosoever”. God doesn’t pick and choose because He loves everyone and whosoever believes in Jesus as their Savior will have eternal life in Him and with Him. This is as deep as the theology goes. Seek Him while there is time because none of us are guaranteed to have tomorrow.
