Today Reminder – 14 July 2017

A reminder for today
And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us. (1 John 3:24)

It is Friday! Yes, my week was a little shorter so I have a little more privilege this week. I am lately doing a lot to equip myself as an apologist for Jesus and in the same effort I am trying to give you guys tools to use against the continuous battle that rages against us. Atheism is extremely active and very outspoken especially New Atheism that constantly tries to confuse people with evolution and science to prove God does not exist. Here are a few thoughts that I have on the subject and maybe it will make you think also. Firstly how was the world created? Evolutionists believe in a number of options of which the “Big bang” seems to be a popular view. They believe that the universe was created in a massive explosion. History has proven to us that explosions only causes destruction and in an explosion all matter will travel in the same direction. In our universe that is not the situation. All eight planets in the Solar System orbit the Sun in the direction that the Sun is rotating, which is counter clockwise when viewed from above the Sun's north pole. Six of the planets also rotate about their axis in this same direction. The exceptions—the planets with retrograde rotation—are Venus and Uranus. So much for an explosion theory. 

Then they claim that we evolved from a monkey and that there are many similarities in our DNA, but what they do not tell you is that there are much more differences. First of all, there is no known way by which natural processes could have produced life itself or the increasingly complex genetic information to get to that point in the first place. Secondly, the existence of biochemical and genetic similarities between humans, apes, and monkeys is evidence, not of common ancestry, but of common design. We know from the book of Genesis that God did not use one organism as raw material for the next but instead spoke each into existence over the course of a few days. All kinds of land animals were created on the same day as Adam and Eve. Human beings have remarkable differences including a spiritual nature that chimps have never and will never have. Ancestral biology cannot explain the origin of the information for physical and mental differences, much less the spiritual differences. But the Bible does.

Therefore, do not worry you are not a monkey. In fact, you will never be one, because you are created in God’s perfect image. I know this, because in me lives an almighty God and I see His amazing presence in every day. How can anyone think that the amazing complexity we have in our uniqueness just came to be. If you look into a mirror how can you not believe that a loving and masterful designer did not make you? Your perfection resembles His amazing power. Do not listen to the lies of the enemy and stand with me as we fight for Jesus. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. You are just perfect, my friend. So, stand up and smile for you are beautiful.

Lord, thank you for all the evidence that we have about you. Help us to show you to a lost world so that your Spirit can break down the walls of atheism. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
