Life is Precious

In many ways, the Creation and Evolution debate is just a small part of the battle between good and evil. Our best defense is our faith and our strongest weapon is His word. The weapons of the enemy are lies and falsehood. Therefore, the battlefield is one of truth. This is where the enemy has attacked, so this is where we must defend ourselves, and science (which is not our enemy) is caught in the middle.

  • Does the attack through evolution have any merit?
  • Is there evidence of Creation?
  • What do you do when you realize that life was created rather than evolved?
  • How does it affect your decisions and goals?
  • If we have evidence, ought we not fear and tremble before the coming judgment?

For myself, finding answers to these question  has been a long journey of discovery and joy. Although I didn’t start out with this goal in mind, it has strengthened my faith, presented a clearer understanding of Scripture, and given a much deeper peace in my soul.

Science is Limited

There are physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects to life. Science is limited to only the physical aspects of life. It can help us gain knowledge of how the physical works, but it does not give us wisdom or show what benefits or harms life in many other ways. It lacks the ability to choose good and evil. Incomplete data and knowledge can lead to terrible decisions. Often, the risks are underestimated in the pursuit of knowledge, especially when it becomes a business.

God’s Imbues His Creation with Meaning

During this lifetime, each person can see the Eternal’s creation. When we place plants, animals, and man into proper perspective it leads to the proper expression of love and give some insight into how to care for the environment. We also can more clearly appreciate the amazing variety that the Creator placed within the kinds so they can fill the world with color and beauty.

When I seek the answers to life from the One who created life, I find peace, hope, joy, and love. I learn that I was created with a purpose, that life has value and meaning, that life goes on even after the death of the body. When I know the answers to the questions of life, it produces a sense of purpose and meaning that can give me direction and goals for moving forward. It is leads me to life abundant and a life with blessing.

Life was created with a purpose by the Creator. It was no accident. It was not a random chance of chemicals coming together. It was a special act. Knowing this should make me consider how precious life really is. For anyone to live life to the fullest, he must understand where he came from, where he really is, where he should be, and where he can be once again.

  1. Todd, how very true when you state, “our best defense is our faith…”! I love the scientific arguments and proofs of creation, for there are many! But as you point out, science is limited. And unfortunately, science is twisted to suit arguments against creation. And even though true science supports creation, faith and the Word are the primary reasons we believe in creation. Hebrews 11:3 (ESV) “By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God…”
