In the Beginning

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.   Genesis 1:1

I’m writing this post from the Annual Conference of the AFLC (Association of Free Lutheran Churches) being held at Spruce Lake Retreat Center in Pennsylvania. The presentation on the first day of the conference was given by a professor on the topic of evolution vs. creation.  These days, it is assumed that everything, including mankind, came about through some sort of cosmic accident.  We simply evolved.  When looking at the evidence, this is revealed to be another example of what I call “stinkin’ thinkin’.”

Why?  Well, one indication that something was created by an intelligent designer is the complexity and specificity of the item.  For example, do you look at a picture of Mount Rushmore and say, “this was formed through centuries of wind and erosion?”  No.  You look at it and say, “this is so complex and specific that someone created it.  You can not only see faces, you can tell who those faces are meant to be.”

Dr. Bierle explained to us that each human being has a genetic code.  This code is comprised of four letters made into three letter words.  The letters making up genetic code for one person would fill 850 Bibles!  That’s pretty complex and specific.  Do you really believe this could occur by accident?

If you would like to learn more about how to speak convincingly about why the theory of evolution is not as plausible as belief in an intelligent creator, the link below will take you to FaithSearch International, which is Dr. Bierle’s organization:
