TRADITION: Man has evolved from pre-existing slime
TRUTH: Man was created by God
The traditional battle of Evolution vs. Creation is definitely not a new subject. However, Darwin's theory of evolution is relatively new as it has only been around about a century and a half. In essence, traditional evolution says we are all kin to the monkey and have evolved from some type of pre-existing slime all the way through monkeyhood to manhood over bazillions of years of time!
Now, it takes a whole lot more faith to believe that story than it does to believe that God created us from "The dust of the ground and breathed into our nostrils the breath of life"(Genesis 2:7). The major problem man has with believing God created us is the accountability factor. If God created us, He owns us and we must then be accountable to Him as He is revealed in His Word the Bible. Our sinful actions must be dealt with in view of the Truth of the Word of God which clearly states: "All have sinned and come short" (Romans 3:23). Repenting of our sin and receiving Jesus Christ by faith as our personal Saviour from sin is God's answer to this curse of sin.
This action on our part causes us to be new creatures in Christ thereby
providing us with a clear vision to see and understand the Truth of Creation and
our Creator God. We can then truthfully sing with the songwriter: "I'm no kin to
the monkey The monkey's no kin to me I don't know about your ancestors But mine
didn't swing from a tree" (source unknown)
