Modern man, in America lives in a post-Christian world. He believes in the theory of evolution. There is no god and the stories in the bible, Noah’s flood, Moses parting the Red Sea, and Jesus walking on water are all myth, nothing more. The ape is our ancestor and the universe is billions of years old. Everything we see here on earth, the complexity of life, all happened by chance, through the evolutionary process, over millions of years. This so-called philosophy is taught in our schools and is the prevailing “wisdom” of the day. Those who embrace this system and others who are in it because they have never heard the good news echo what was written thousands of years ago by Peter, one of Jesus disciples. He tells us:
That scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.
This passage makes it very clear that there was a creation by the word of God i.e. Jesus. He spoke the universe and every element as we know it, into existence. This was the act of creation, ex nihilo, out of nothing. We are told that out of the dust of the earth man was created. IN that creation we have the gift of life. We see this gift of life attacked daily in the abortion mills as the slaughter of the innocent continues, for the most part unabated. I believe that life begins at the moment of conception. In that gift of life we are also given autonomy, free will, the ability to make choices whether we will seek out God and worship him, or choose to believe that there is no God, and therefore worshiping something that doesn’t exist is an exercise in absurdity! We are told that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. We see the complexity of life in the DNA double helix strand, in which the encoded information for all living things lies. I call this the finger-prints of God. With all of that in mind, He will not, under any circumstances twist our arm and make us worship Him. It is a free will choice. It springs from an understanding that He sent His only son, Jesus to die in our place and by His blood we can be born again and have eternal life. That sacrifice on Calvary, truly set the captives free. However, it is up to us to either embrace this free gift or turn our backs from it and go our own way. It has been 30 years since I invited Him into my life and I will tell you there has never been a dull moment since. He is lover of our souls. He is the truth the life and the way and no one comes to the father except through Him, Jesus. I am often asked by people who are in UFO cults or those who are in the occult, what steps they should take to get out. I tell them that they must come to a undestanding of Jesus and what He did for everyone on this planet. Only He that can set them free from the demonic activity and the oppression that they are experiencing. As he sets us free we slowly begin to grasp how wonderfully good He is and that we can trust Him. Then we realize that he is both God and man and worthy of our worship because, He first loved us and laid His life down for us.
