One of the many evil fruits sprouting from the 1962-1963 decisions to remove both prayer and biblical creation from our public schools, and begin teaching America’s future citizens they were animals that had evolved over “billions of years” of time, was the sexual revolution which took off in 1965-1966.
In Matthew 7:15-20 Jesus said we are to tell what is good from that which is corrupt by the fruit being produced. A good tree will provide good fruit while a corrupt tree will yield evil fruit.
Downgrading a human to the level of just another evolving animal, in the minds of many Americans, took but ten short years to yield the evil fruit of legalized abortion. Today, with 56,000,000 American deaths attributed to this single fruit of the Darwinian tree; I think it is well past time we took our Savior’s words to heart.
A Bible based worldview is diametrically opposed to a thought process founded upon Darwinian based conclusions. This is especially true when it comes to the sacredness of human life. So what does a worldview founded on biblical creation teach us about the sanctity of life that Darwinism cannot?
1 Corinthians 15:39 draws a clear line of demarcation between a person holding to a Biblical worldview and someone with a Darwinian mindset. This verse confirms the fact we do not have a common ancestor with another living organism, stating: All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
Foundational pillars of a biblical view include that humans were made in the image of our Creator and were made to have a special relationship with Him. Genesis 1:26-27 clearly states we did not evolve from any other creature. Here God said, …Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Thus, we were formed in the image of the Almighty.
God has loved each of us individually since before He created time, and He knew us before we were even born. As the Psalmist noted in Psalm 139:13 …thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. No matter the age or quality of a human life, we all hold a very special place in God’s creation.
And the sanctity and value of human life continues on for eternity, as we are told in John 3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Everlasting life with Jesus Christ in heaven.
This is what a worldview founded on biblical creation teaches us about the sanctity of life that Darwinism cannot. And it is a lesson well worth learning.
