Summary: I believe that in these last days God is fulfilling this verse amazingly right before our very eyes!
I believe in these last days God is fulfilling this verse amazingly right before our very eyes!
Daniel 12:4 “But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal up the book until the time of the end; many will go to and fro and knowledge will increase.”
Isaiah 29:14 “…I will show that human wisdom is foolish and even the most brilliant people lack understanding.”
2 Timothy 3:7 “Always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
We live in a time that is filled with unhealthy learning, unhelpful wisdom and unbelievable knowledge. The rate that knowledge is doubling and tripling is frightening! But with all this learning, it’s not getting us as a country closer to God and the Bible!
I kind of feel like David when he said in Psalm 26:7 “I can’t voice it enough about God wondrous works!” DKV (Dave Kinney’s Version)
So now let’s pull together some loose ends and look at:
1. Satan’s Replacement Theology Began Overthrowing The Absolute.
Evolution can be described as replacing God with the roulette wheel and with this one turn has man broke with God and history.
I’m convinced that this theory would have died out by the late 1800’s had not the atheistic academic world latched on to it. Because I could make a case that evolution was not catching on and overwhelming science up to Darwin’s death. In fact I’ve given you some insight to the doubts Darwin was having with regards to fossils and certain parts of the body.
Up until the 1800’s science and religion were compatible with each other in most areas.
To prove this, in 1857, two years before Darwin would write his famous book of “Origins”, Louis Agassiz, the leading Zoologist and Father of biology was a professor of at Harvard, said this about the living world…“It shows premeditation, wisdom, greatness…omniscience, providence…all these facts…proclaim aloud the One God whom man may know, and natural history must, in good time become the analysis of the thoughts of the Creator of the Universe, as manifested in the animals and vegetable kingdoms, as well as the organic world.”
Darwin (1809- 1882) was born into a well to do middle class family in England. His father was a doctor and tried to get his young son to go the same way. Darwin went to Edinburgh to become a doctor, was just an average student. Then he went to Cambridge to study theology and become a pastor. Later Darwin said that those 3 years were wasted years. Later he would study Biology and really enjoy this field of science.
The men that Darwin associated with for most of his life were creationist with very prestigious positions in science and history. Great geologists like Henslow and Sedgwick, both where pioneers in their field and highly sought after to study under at Cambridge.
Then in 1831 something happened to his life …for 5 years he was on a boat journey and expedition that took him almost around the world studying biology, surveying the small islands along the way. Even as he started out on the ship called “Beagle”, he said of himself, “I did not then in the least doubt the strict and literal truth of every word in the Bible.”
