Summary: Using evolution’s deception one can prove that God exists.
Evolution’s Deception: Making a Monkey of Man, Pt. 1
“Proving The Existence of God”
Is there really a God? Is there even an answer to that question and, “If there is a God where did God come from?”
We’ve all had these kinds of questions in our minds or have had someone ask us and not always had the answer!
Carl Sagan said, “The cosmos is all that there is or ever was or ever will be.”
But Genesis says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
There’s a big difference between these 2 statements. How do we answer the question of the existence of God in order to influence society? This is what I will try to accomplish today!
Think for a moment about the enormous affects of this issue: If God created, then that puts Him in authority, but if evolution is correct, that puts man in authority! Do you see what’s at stake?
Key: What society believes of its origins directly affects it’s whole worldview! It is either a humanistic or theistic battle for today’s mindset!
1 Peter 3:15 “Be ready always to give an answer (defense, apology) to every man that asks you a reason of the hope (assurance) that is in you.”
21st Christians must know what they believe and why they believe it or Christianity is no good for anyone! In the last 40 years we’ve been playing catch up with secular society with regards to answers to the nagging questions we all have about life. Think about this…for nearly 1900 years we held to Biblical creation. It has only been in the last 160 years that secular society has attacked the Biblical account of creation with vigor and viciousness!
Men like Fredrick Nietzsche (“God is dead”), Benedict Spinoza, Sigmund Freud and David Hume, to name just a few, have made a serious wreck out of the faith of millions around the world.
The major dents that make up this wreck: belief in God’s existence, reliability of the Bible and their denial of miracles. And yet every one of these men believes in evolution, and if true, is the greatest miracle of all!
David Hume said, “A miracle is a violation of the laws of nature.” This is not true, a miracle is going beyond the laws of nature, example: healing cancer cells.
Think of it this way…believing that a God beyond the universe, created it, controls it can also interfere in it.
But using David Hume’s statement, evolution is a violation of the laws of nature in every way, which I will prove in the weeks ahead!
So now, let’s put our brains to work…
Let me ask…how many would like to put me in a padded cell if I said that this worship center came into being by random chance?
Or let me put it another way…how about the presidents on Mount Rushmore, what if I said that they were carved out of that mountain by millions of years of wind and water?
That’s laughable! All of us would say that there is a recognizable intelligence behind its creation!
Dr. Richard Dawkins, a strong evolution from England said in 1997, “We have seen that living things are too improbable and too beautifully designed to have come into existence by chance.”
What is he saying…not that God made anything, but that chance can go to this extreme!
A secular biology teacher will say, “Billy, as long as the DNA eventually lines up together and in the right order, that’s what matters.”
The Christian biology teacher will say, “Billy, but what are the odds of DNA eventually lining up together to create life and then how did that DNA come into existence in the first place?”
Think for a moment: if you could just take one of your living cells and take the information from it, the information would take up approximately 500,000 pages.
What is DNA? Think of it as a long piece of rope with beads of molecules that are put on it and all of those molecules would spell out every minute aspect of who you are. It could be said that DNA is the Morris code to man’s existence!
So the evolutionists would say, “You don’t need God, just as long as the molecules line up in the right order, then you have life!”
The evolutionist continues, “Take a hat and place the complete alphabet in it and pass it around and let the letters C A T be pulled out and now by chance we have a word. Now give enough time you could get enough words in sequence to form a sentence and you’re off. Eventually you will get the entire enclyopedia compiled. So see Billy, we don’t need God - you just need time and chance!”
