Evolution and
Mathematical Impossibility

Donald R. Fox

Donald R. FoxAs you and I look at the complexity of our universe, our earth and the huge variety of living life forms (e.g., animals, humans, etc.), we are caught up in astonishment. We are in awe of the great intricacy of our planet called Earth. The evolutionist demands we reject our God and accept their theory that all living things just happened. For Christians who continue to be believers in the God Almighty of the Bible, we also reject evolution because we know the theory that all living beings simply happened is mathematically impossible.

No Complex System of Such
Living Beings Can Evolve by Chance

In the real world of scientific observation, as opposed to metaphysical speculation, however, no more complex system can ever “evolve” out of a less complex system, so the probability of the naturalistic origin of even the simplest imaginary form of life is zero. The existence of complexity of any kind is evidence of God and creation. “Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: He calleth them all by names by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth” (Isaiah 40:26). (http://www.icr.org/article/mathematical-impossibility- evolution/)

If living matter is not, then, caused by the interplay of atoms, natural forces and radiation, how has it come into being? …I think, however, that we must… admit that the only acceptable explanation is creation. I know that this is anathema to physicists, as indeed it is to me, but we must not reject a theory that we do not like if experimental evidence supports it. (“A Physicist Looks at Evolution.” Physics Bulletin, vol. 31 (May 1980). p. 138, Lipson, H. S. Extracted from “That Their Words May Be Used Against Them.” Compiled by Henry M. Morris, Institute for Creation Research, San Diego, CA, 1997)

According to the above, “the only acceptable explanation is creation.” Because of unbelief and hardness of the heart, an evolutionist must reject “the only acceptable explanation.” However, when we observe the universe and our beautiful earth, it bellows “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1 KJV). Further, H.S. Lipson uses the word anathema to explain the utter repulsiveness for a physicist to think of the acceptability of God creating the heavens, the earth and all living beings. Anathema is defined as a “solemn curse and something hated and despised.” Mankind may reject, hate and despise God Almighty, still we must speak truth and stand firm, “He that speaketh truth showeth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit” (Proverbs 12:17). “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God” (Psalm 14:1).

Love and Gratitude –
the Greatest Motivators

Tim Childs

Tim ChildsOne of these days you and I will be part of the greatest assembly ever when we appear before the Judge of all the earth to give account of the deeds we have done while living in our physical bodies (2 Corinthians 5:10). Talk about a moment of truth! What a moment of revelation as the hidden secrets of our hearts are exposed and judged (Romans 2:16)!

By His mercy, for some, God has given the gift of today to experience forgiveness and begin a new life in Christ (Romans 6:4). For others, God has given the gift of today with the opportunity to repent and be restored to fidelity. For the rest, God has given the gift of today with the occasion to serve with joy, expressing to Him our deep love and gratitude.

Love and gratitude are the greatest of motivators. We see it in our filial relationships: Moms and Dads go to the greatest lengths to care for and to comfort their new-born babies, to provide for and to nurture their young sons and daughters as they develop into adulthood. Grown children, with hearts of love and gratitude, will do everything in their power to help and comfort their parents as they face the sometimes difficult challenges of their golden years.

However, there is another relationship that is more vitally important to us than even this blood kinship. It is a unique spiritual relationship with our Heavenly Father that was made possible by the blood of Jesus our Savior! “For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again” (2 Corinthians 5:14-15).

Our love and gratitude for the sacrifices of our Heavenly Father and the gift of His only begotten Son motivate us for diligent daily service in the kingdom of heaven. As John put it, “We love him, because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19). Let’s serve Him!
