A re you
here by design? Is there a plan and purpose for your life? Or
are you here by accident and your life is without a cause?
- THE GOOD NEWS!
Creation teaches that you
are here by design and were formed in your mother's womb by an
almighty God who truly loves you and wants to have a personal
relationship with you. God gave everyone on the face of this
earth a purpose. We were created for God to love us and us in
return to love, serve, and worship Him. He also created us to
take care of His beautiful creation. There is nothing God created
that is without a cause.
- THE LIE!
a theory that has absolutely no proof or any hope whatsoever.
It is a deceptive theory invented by Satan, the "father
of lies". Evolution teaches that mankind is no different
and nothing other than a piece of dirt or rust, a slug, or a
spider. It is a theory that has become a religion that has denied
the truth of God. It has falsely taught that there is no God
that the human race has to be accountable before. It teaches
you to live for yourself because there is no judgment.
Let's take a
look at what God's word says about creation:
God is eternal. "Hast
thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting
God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth
not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding"
(Isaiah 40:28). Also Genesis 21:33; Exodus 3:14; Deuteronomy
33:27; Isaiah 9:6; Micah 5:2; Romans 16:26
Everything that exists God created: "In the beginning God created the
heaven and the earth" (Genesis
1:1). Also Psalms 95:3-6;
102:25, 147:4, Proverbs 30:4, Isaiah 40:28; 42:5; 45:12,18; Jeremiah
27:5; 32:17; John 1:1-5, Acts 14:15; Colossians 1:17-18, Hebrews
God called all things into existence.
He created all things out of nothing. "Through faith
we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God,
so that things which are seen were not made of things which do
appear" (Hebrews 11:3).
God created all things good, until sin entered His creation. Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of
Eden and allowed sin to pollute God's originally good universe.
This has brought a curse of death and destruction. "And
God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very
good" (Genesis 1:31).
God preserves, cares for, and is present with His creation: "Am I a God
at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? Can any hide
himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the
LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD " (Jeremiah
23:23-24). Also Nehemiah 9:6;
Psalms 104:14; 135:6-7; Matthew 26:28; 10:29-31; Colossians 1:16-17;
How did God chose to guide His creation? He
gave humankind His word. The Bible has every answer we need and
is the perfect guide for every aspect of life. "Thy word
have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee"
(Psalm 119:11). Also 2 Timothy 2:15; 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21
There is a reason and a purpose for all of God's creation: "Thou
art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for
thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they
are and were created"(Revelation 4:11). Also Psalm 19:1-3
God created everything that is valuable. Since all creation
is important everything should be treated with respect. The way
God would treat it. "Behold the fowls of the air: for
they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet
your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than
they?" (Matthew 6:26)
God is worthy to be praised.
"Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise
ye the LORD" (Psalm 150:6 ). Also Daniel 4:34;
God's awesome plan of redemption for His human race: "For
the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord"(Romans 6:23). Also
John 3:16-18; John 6:35; 8:12; 10:9; 11:25-26; 14:6; Romans 10:9-10,13,
The Lord is the judge of the earth:
"Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge
the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness,
and the people with his truth" (Psalm 96:13 ). Also
Psalm 97:2-3; 1 Corinthians 4:5)
God will create a new heavens and a new earth in the future:
"And I saw a new heaven
and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were
passed away; and there was no more sea" (Revelation 21:1). Also Isaiah
65:17; 2 Peter 3:13
