Your creation explanation tells me a lot
about your heart.
Yesterday, I listened to another podcast from another podcaster. And he and a guest shared some weird perspectives from a group of people who call themselves “flat earthers.” Now, if you have even a couple of brain cells still sparking, you immediately spit take whatever you’re drinking and say, “What did you say?! Flat earthers? That’s a thing?!” Yeah, and I’ll bet their creation explanation is just as weird. Of course, they’d probably wanna skip the word, creation. But anyway…
A credible creation explanation can be found all around you.
Where is it? What is it? Are you ready for it? It’s called – creation. Think of it this way. A designer came up with all the design you see in life. It didn’t happen the other way around.
I’ve read and listened to a gigantic variety of explanations for how we humans got here. And I’m talking about the course of a few decades now. The explanations run from just plain silly (flat earth people, I’m looking at you) to extravagantly silly (theistic evolutionists, I’m looking at you)
Odd creatures, with facial hair obscuring their faces…and living in some sort of basements, postulate alien seeding theories. And starched and proper professors with English accents regularly regurgitate their punctuated equilibrium hypotheses. But my favorite view of creation comes from a king who lived about 3000 years ago. He wrote about it in a song. Aka, a Psalm. And the song put creation in the hands of a Creator. I know, I know. Sounds like crazy talk from a wild-eyed cave-dweller, right? Nope. David was actually a king. Movies have been made about him. So, it must be true.
And just in case you think you’re Mr. or Miss Originality…
You might recognize this phrase that actually comes from Psalm 8, “out of the mouth of babes“. Yeah, David wrote that long before it became an old American saying. And then he went on to show his amazement at God’s handiwork. He said it like this…
“When I econsider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, All sheep and oxen—Even the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea that pass through the paths of the seas. O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!”
And I hope that resonates with you. It’s another example of how life had Rhyme and Reason because God made us.
