The twenty-first century has immensely evolved from its preceding centuries to a place and time which almost seems foreign to me. I am not just talking about the advancement of technology, machinery, electronics, media, computers, etc, but I am also referring to the very essence of humankind. Where did common courtesy, self-respect, love for our fellow man and human decency go? The majority of this new generation have either lost or never had a sacred connection to God. Try engaging a spiritual conversation with young adults of today and I bet the first words to sprout from their lips would entail an idealized perception about Greek philosophers’ theory of evolution; they appear completely devoid of faith in our Heavenly Father, but who are proud self-proclaimed atheists. The power of wisdom seems to elude the majority of these young souls as it is brilliantly described in the following scriptures.
Proverbs 8:22-29 “The Lord brought me forth as the first of His works, before His deeds of old; I was formed long ages ago, at the very beginning, when the world came to be. When there were no watery depths, I was given birth, when there were no springs overflowing with water; before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth, before He made the world or its fields or any of the dust of the earth. I was there when He set the heavens in place, when He marked out the horizon on the face of the deep, when He established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep, when He gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep His command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.”
Sometimes I sit and ponder in my own solitude of spirituality about why this culture of people are so lost and captivated by a world of spiritual darkness. I sit consumed by thoughts of why the greater part of our youth tend to lack understanding about the true creator and creations in this earth, including the conception of our very existence. As a seasoned Christian everything, all human understanding and knowledge is made clear through God’s Word as well as in all the beauty that surrounds us daily. It would appear these lost souls are unable to really grasp the glory of the sun; the twinkling of countless stars; the nightlight of the moon; the trees, hills, dry land and mountains which are meticulously scattered across the earth separating vast bodies of water. There is not one single human being alive with the brain power or propensity to create such divine perfection and magnificence.
What is evolution? I think it is nothing more than a form of “devil-ution” a phrase coined to describe the devil’s quest to win souls through his great lies by deceiving them into believing that life derived from non-life and the evolutionary descent of man from animal. Why is this ridiculous theory so easily accepted by millions of people across the globe? God laid out a perfect foundation of this universe and expounded upon every aspect of life, death and after life in the Bible. He equipped us with a road map to survive in times of temptations, weakness, sickness and all other aspects of life’s many tribulations. However, it is up to each and every one of us to seek the truth, teach the truth, live by the truth and to die by the truth which is detailed in the Word of God.
Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
As Christians we need to unify as one Church under the helm of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit (the Trinity) to restore the faithless unbelieving souls that are being deceived by Satan. Christ makes it clear in His Word that He did not come to earth for the saved, but that He came to save the sinners from their own ignorance. The greatest sacrifice of all time was Jesus Christ dying to pay the debt for our sins and every time the gift of salvation is rejected by blasphemy it is like spitting at the Cross that shed innocent blood of our savior. We must stand in faith and pray for wisdom and strength to accept this free gift as well as to helping others through our forgiveness and God’s grace to understand and receive the true gift of eternal life (as so eloquently spoken by Paul in the following scriptures).
1 Timothy 1:12-15 “I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst.”
The Bible teaches that the truth will set us free; but how will we ever achieve freedom if we continue to live in blindness due to the lies of the devil. Contrary to popular belief, God is real and reigns in His Kingdom and He has given each of us the key to unlock the free gift of eternal life for all who believe, overcome, and who choose to live by His Word and accepting His Son, Jesus Christ as Savior, unequivocally believing in His resurrection.
John 8:31-32 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
1 John 5:13 “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.”
Peace, joy, hope, faith, grace and love in Christ Jesus, Blessings!
