Evolution or Creation – which is true?
Evolution declares everything came into being on its own. Creation declares that the omniscient, omnipresent God spoke creation into being. Let’s see which claim is true, which makes the most sense.
Let us see what basic things are necessary for either to succeed.
1. A designer with all knowledge.
2. A purpose for creation.
3. The ability to bring forth materials from it.
4. The power to sustain the creation.
Evolution has none of these, whereas the Creator God has all of these things.
Now some will question, is there a God? I answer yes!
How do I know? Because God has revealed himself through His word the Holy Bible, which begins “In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.”
Second, the wonders of creation demand a creator who is all wise and all powerful, as opposed to creation just happening by chance.
Third, in Colossians 1:16, we read “By Him (Jesus) all things were created through Him and for Him.” Now whereas evolution has no purpose, the Creator has a great purpose, which is to love us, human beings – all of us, to guide and provide for us. His love is everlasting and for all who love Him. He gives eternal life.
May the New Year of our Lord 2022 be a wonderful year for you.
