Summary: The devil is trying to convince humanity that neither he nor God exist. Satan wants humanity to believe that man was not created by God according to His image, but rather that man is a deliberate creation by a race of scientifically advanced extraterrestr
The other day I was channel surfing when I came across a T.V documentary, on the history channel that I found very interesting. The documentary was presented as study, and it dealt about creation and the advances that man has made. Upon doing research I found that the concepts presented in this documentary were not something completely new, but they sure were new to me, as I had never heard of the things that they mentioned. Evidently there are a group of intellectuals who deny the theory of the evolution. So the theory of evolution as accepted by many intellectuals and scientists in the world is being challenged. What theory challenges the evolution theory that was introduced by Charles Darwin in 1859?. The theory that challenges the evolution theory is that man is a hybrid being.
According to these people, man is a hybrid of the monkey and extraterrestrials, and this DNA graft is what has produced today’s man. These people explain that the hybrid theory explains the advances of man in such a short period of time. In other words, this theory explains how man went from being caveman to being pyramid builders, and all of the other advances in a short period of time.
Furthermore, according to these people the extraterrestrial beings continue visiting the planet, influencing the destiny of the humanity. And they cautioned that humanity should not accept these extraterrestrial beings as being exclusively benign. They explained that the war between the angels, that is to say, when Satan was cast out of heaven, was actually a battle between two factions of extraterrestrial beings. One faction was good and benign (those that represent God) and the other was evil (those that represent Satan). And the prettiest thing about all of this is that at times, they attempted to justify their beliefs and theories mentioning passages from the Bible, which supposedly proved what they were saying. Needless to say that they never referred to the Bible as the Word of God, that is to say something divine, but rather referred to it as a book of historical events. Where am I going with all of this?
What we are seeing take place is that the devil is trying to eliminate God from the equation. In other words, the devil is trying to convince humanity that neither he nor God exist. Satan wants humanity to believe that man was not created by God according to His image, but rather that man is a deliberate creation by a race of scientifically advanced extraterrestrial beings; unfortunately a good portion of humanity is being convinced (70% of American people believe that we are visited by aliens). But now we must ask: why is this happening? To answer our question, let’s now turn to the Word of God.
2 Timothy 4:1-4 - In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. 3For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
The apostle Paul wrote this letter to Timothy to charge him with a great mission; the apostle Paul gave Timothy the mission of preaching the Gospel at all times. Although this letter was directed to Timothy at that time, it continues to speak to us today with the same metal. I say this because by just meditating a little on what we’ve finished reading, it’s not difficult to discern that in this small portion of the scriptures we find a good reflection of what we are seeing occur nowadays. In other words, we are seeing how man is willing to accept anything except the Word of God. Why has this happened?
The main reason as to why this has happened, and is happening today is because many have taken their eyes off from God. This is why through history, we find men whom have professed to be believers; men like Benjamin Franklin; Thomas Jefferson and John Adams; have said things like: “Lighthouses are more useful than churches” - Benjamin Franklin. “This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religion in it” – John Adams. “Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man” – Thomas Jefferson. As if all of this was not enough, Jefferson also edited the Bible eliminating from it all of Jesus’ miracles, and all statements that professed His divinity. This book is known as: The Jefferson Bible, or The Faith and Moral Teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.
