There is a war going on! It is a battle for the souls of men, women and children. The enemy has made much headway infiltrating the public school system (not to mention churches) casting out any knowledge of God and our Creator. The public school has had a new paradigm for some time now, and has been teaching it to millions of young impressionable minds. It has replaced God and the catastrophic evidence we see around the world for the Biblical worldwide Flood of Noah, exchanging it with the teaching of the humanistic theory of evolution. It is a front that we need to send our best soldiers to recapture the minds of those who have been so ill affected by these deceptions. I have talked to evolutionary geologists and many of their followers, and what holds so many of their disciples in the snare of the Devil is the idea that radiometric dating proves the earth is millions of years old.
If the earth is millions of years old, the Bible is wrong. We might well then just eat, drink and be merry as before long we will be turned back to the very elements from which we were made. However, if the radiometric dating methods do not reflect the truth about the alleged long geological ages, and the earth is not millions of years old, evolution, which needs millions of years for it to work, is false. It would mean that the Bible is true and that we are sinners in need of repentance and salvation.
I think evolution, which they say is supported by radiometric dating, is really the underlying thrust why many believe and fight so hard for these long ages. Thereby they can cast off any guilt and fear of responsibility, consequences and judgment due to their sin, having numbed their conscience to the reality of their Creator, whom they have pushed out of their newly found paradigm. Their rage can be summed up in the words of the Psalmist, “Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us” (Psalm 2:1-3). This should not surprise us, as the Lord has foretold us that this paradigm would rise to the front in the “last days” (2 Peter 3:1-6) and deceive many.
The Bible also says, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron...” (1 Timothy 4:1-2). Evolution is probably the most successful lie of the Devil that has deceived millions upon millions in these last days. And really, for many it is just another way to justify their unbelief and their love of darkness ( John 3:16-21). While some may of their own will seared their conscience, I believe that many have unwittingly followed these cunningly devised fables for lack of having not knowing the difference and are subtly fooled by the veneer of “science” that it is wrapped in. One only needs to scratch the surface and you will find what the Bible has termed, “science falsely so called” (1 Timothy 6:20).
Evolution is really just another form of idolatry. The first commandment says, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3), and worship is to be reserved only for Him (Luke 4:8). Evolution has been designed to replace the worship of the One True God and Creator, even long before Darwin. The prophet Habakkuk said long ago, “Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.” (Habakkuk 2:19) Most everyone would say, How foolish! To think that a dumb stone, or any inanimate object can come to life and even become teachers. A child knows better, but not high school science teachers. These are teaching young impressionable minds with the belief that lifeless inorganic substances can somehow first become simple living organisms and eventually organize themselves all the way up to being people.?
Of course they would not suggest that sticks and stones could suddenly become human, but neither did the ancient idolaters. They just believe that lots of time can magically develop people out of much simpler substances. Nevertheless, the wooden idol of the pagan is every bit as scientific as the evolutionary models of the modern intellectual. Neither one can create life. “Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not... They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them” (Psalm 115:4-8). Evolution, like the ancient idol, is just another work of men's hands, and those who trust in them are like these dumb idols. ?
The Law of Biogenesis proves that life can only come from Life, ultimately the living God, the Grand Designer who Created all things, The Lord Jesus Christ. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. ... That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:1-4, 9-14).
If you are not familiar with radiometric dating methods, I would recommend you make yourself aware of their assumptions and inaccuracies that you may be prepared to give an answer to those who may not even be alert to the fact that they are being led away from their Creator. I have watched numerous videos that unravel the so called facts of the radiometric dating methods. Radiometric dating methods can be deceiving because the math behind them is good, but they fail to take into account three major assumptions. They may be useful for relative ages, but not for absolute ages. If you want to familiarize yourself with how these dating methods are in no way absolute, I recommend the video, How Radiometric Dating Works: Relative not Absolute Ages that will help unravel some of the myths behind these dating methods.
God Bless, and fight the good fight,
