#3 In the Beginning (continued)

12 September 1999

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth"-GENESIS 1:1 Genesis 1:1 not only declares God as Creator, it is also a statement which places all of humanity accountable to God for their actions: it involves morality. In a nutshell, this is the heart of the issue: morality. Satan knows that if he can flatter man into thinking he has discovered evolution, and if this theory is placed in the minds of men, they will sooner or later begin to act like the creatures they think they evolved from. This is quite convenient, because man, by nature, does not like to answer to any one for any thing. He wants to be his own god, make up his own rules, and live by the standards of his own choosing. A number of years ago, Sir Julian Huxley, the most prestigious evolutionary scientist of the world at that time was asked: "Why do you think that evolution caught on so quickly?" His reply: "We all jumped at the Origin(of the species) because the idea of God interfered with our sexual mores." If evolution can be subjected to the minds of children, it will become a snare unto their little souls as to whether or not they should believe Genesis 1:1. It will diminish their responsibility to God; to their parents; to their peers; to the laws of the land; and even to their own conscience. In short, it is a conflicting statement. It clashes with what they are taught in the Church, by their parents and even by creation itself(Psalms 19:1-3). What catastrophic results have been bred by this heresy of Satan. It is amazing to me to observe the many places that this heresy is taught unchallenged, and that, without a thread of evidence... p.s. there have been no missing links discovered as of September, 1998. Had they found one, it would be paraded up and down every crack and crevice of the globe, on tv, in every magazine, and on display in a glass case at the Smithsonian. Today, of all days, parents should be careful to monitor everything their children come in contact with: what they see; what they hear; and what they are taught, and always be ready to expose the fallacy of this heresy. All it will affect is their morality.?! Come to worship with us at HARMONY PRIMITIVE BAPTIST CHURCH, at Donaldson, where God is sovereign and salvation is by His abundant and amazing grace.
