Various localities around the world took part in the ‘March for Science’ on Saturday, 22 April 2017. What was it about? Three different kinds of science were lumped together: operational science, climate change and the ‘science’ of evolution. Nobody has problems with testable, observable, repeatable science. It serves society very well. We don’t want to comment on climate change, but would like to say the following about ‘evolution science.’
# Why is Darwinian evolution called science?
It was not established as science by repeated experiments, because that is not possible. You cannot test past events repeatedly. Darwinian evolution is an absolute dud when it comes to scientific benefits to society through practical applications. It is practical science that gives inventions, applications and progress to society.
# God and the ‘god’ of evolution are opposites
Darwinian evolution is an attempt to dethrone the Creator God.
- As the Owner and Ruler of His creation, God decreed that forgiveness of sins is only possible through the exchange of innocent blood.
- In the Old Testament it was through the sacrifice of animals. It was a pointer to the coming Redeemer, Jesus.
- From the New Testament we know that the Son of God, Jesus, is the Lamb who died in our place for forgiveness of our sins.
# Why is forgiveness of sins such a threat?
- Forgiveness of our sins rescues us from the devil’s wiles.
- Scripture tells us that the ruler of the world, the devil, deceives the whole world. 1 He hates the verse, ‘For He [God] has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the Kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption [recovery out of slavery under the devil], the forgiveness of sins. 2
- Jesus forgives sins (Jesus testified to it when friends brought a paralytic to Him, ‘…so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins….’ 3).
- God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit were all involved in creation. They are all involved in freeing us from the bondage of Satan.
# What the devil hates?
The devil hates it that people can be freed and saved to inherit eternal life in Jesus, which he cannot. If he can convince people that there was no Creator, then logically people assume there is no Saviour. Then they are left in their sins with no forgiveness. O, the devil loves that very much!
We know the world did not evolve, because it was created by the omnipotent God. Therefore we know that when He forgives it is effective. The Saviour came to save, and it works all the time. Darwinian evolution is a deception with the intent to lead people away from freedom in Jesus.
