Welcome to a world of superficial thinking and writing, where general statements about such minimally felt and thought about things are blasted into the brains of the TV zombified peoples. I’m possibly talking about you if you’re one of those people who believe broad and general statements.
But broad and general statements aren’t a bad thing; Jesus used one. Jesus summed up the entirety of Scriptures demands for obedience in this sentence, “Love the Lord your God with All your heart, All your mind, All your soul, and All your strength.” The whole Old Testament is an expounding upon this command.
People who believe this broad statement know it by it’s form. They know the letters, the words, the structure, and a basic gist of it. But they don’t know it because they don’t know what Jesus is saying in this sentence. It’s like saying to a two year old child, who has yet to see a picture of the solar system, “Pluto is no longer a planet.” To which the child will just blankly stare back at the parent, blink, and say, “I’m hungry.”
What’s this got to do?
Now what does the greatest commandment and evolution have to do with one another? Everything. But before I make a distinct connection, let me make a deep level connection.
Jesus gave us the command to love God with all of our mind. All of it. In it’s entirety. We must use our mind, our brain, our thinking, to love God, in all moments, through everything we think about. We need all our thoughts to be true. All our thoughts must be conformed to God’s word. Our beliefs on finances, family, countries, protection, guns, social programs, work, ethics, social science, history, mathematics, and etc. etc. must be conformed to God’s word.
So how do we love God with our minds? It can go wider and deeper, but I will keep it simple. Know God with your mind. Know what is true about Him. Know what is true about what He has done. How can you love God when you don’t know Him? How can you love God when you believe lies about Him?
Jimmy told little Susan about Johnny. What Jimmy said was that Johnny was fat, ugly, and picked his nose all the time. Little Susan didn’t think well about Johnny for a while, and avoided him for a while. But, one day, little Susan had to work with Johnny for an in class play. What Little Susan saw was that even though Johnny was fat, he wasn’t ugly and he definitely didn’t pick his nose. In fact, Johnny has nice curly black hair, blue eyes, and seemed to be tidy and neat. And she liked his taught and tender smile.
In the same way, we need to know God as He is and not from what others said about Him or what we think we know about Him. We must know God for who He is.
Now let me hit upon the connection between thinking and evolution.
Because you may have grown up in public school you have the evolutionary teaching coursing in your veins. Whether you like it or not, it’s there and it’s a disease like malaria. It can kill you if not treated.
The cure is loving God with all of your mind. Thinking right about God in all that you know about the world and God. This means being more Gospel-centered and knowing the Bible, and trusting the Bible as God’s word over and above men who change their minds. We must know the truth and not the shifting sand of the minds of men.
But the problem with evolution is that it’s disguised as a cure, as a solution, as the truth and not a disease. It comes at you. You are brainwashed by public school to believe it, and subtle attacks from the American culture and general belief of the population make you believe it’s fact. You hear it on the history channel, in text books, by scientists, and by geologists about the “gradual, slow, processes.”
Evolutionists will go so far as to say that Science has killed God, and Christians will go so far as to allow Evolutionary thinking into their theology believing that they can mix. It feels like it explains a lot of things, but it doesn’t.
You can die by cancer after receiving an Olympic gold medal, but that doesn’t mean the cancer was good. The cancer of evolution doesn’t win any medals, but the world makes it seem like it does.
So let me be upfront in what I want to say. Evolution has arrived from a philosophy of thought, not from science.Yes, evolution in the specific sense of a species adapting to its environment is true. I am not fighting against this scientific and obvious truth. But, evolutionary thought in general is a philosophy that has entrapped many people.
The Basic Evolutionary Story
This is the Evolutionary story, the philosophy of evolutionary thought: Over long periods of time, things gradually change.
Now, take this idea, and apply it to everything:
Began to exist, or always existed (they’re still debating that as scientists) and then gradually and slowly expanded to form plants, stars, solar systems, galaxies and clusters.
Was slowly formed and gradually became what we know it as today.
Slowly and gradually formed by many slow and gradual processes.
Gradually and slowly formed from things that aren’t life.
Diversity of life
Gradually and slowly formed from the “simple” organisms into more complex organisms, and complex chains and food chains and dependence upon other organisms.
Eye’s to see
For the discerning eye, you’ll understand why this story is actually destructive to Science.
For you see, any evidence that may come across an evolutionists path is fit into their worldview to support their theory. They don’t look at evidence without their bias. Instead, they come at a piece of evidence with the mindset that, “this has to do with gradual, slow processes, over long periods of time.” So, if an island formed in 2015, science will date it back a few million years ago, except when they see it in front of their eyes.
There is much to be said and I only scratched the surface. But let me end by saying this: I am not claiming that Evolution is a theory. I am doing far more than that. I am claiming that Evolution is not a theory but a philosophy. I am claiming that particles to man evolution is an unsubstantiated hypothesis that has no evidence and is based upon looking at artifacts and bones, and placing these artifacts and bones into their preconceived philosophical constructs.
