6-12-2017 Devolving Evolution

In one passage, by stating scientific facts, the New Testament destroys the false doctrine of Evolution. “All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory” (1 Corinthians 15:39-41 NKJV). Evolution falsely says “all flesh is the same” without any scientific proof! Evolution falsely says our Earth is no different from celestial bodies, but no observation proves this! The Bible rightly shows the sun, moon and stars are different from each other! Our Creator should know!

“These were the families of the sons of Noah, according to their generations, in their nations; and from these the nations were divided on the earth after the flood” (Genesis 10:32 NKJV). There is not an Evolutionist who can account for the different “nations” on earth. According to the Bible, however, all “nations” came from one family stock. God “created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created” (Genesis 5:2 NKJV), “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living” (Genesis 3:20 NKJV). After the worldwide flood, only through Noah, his sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and their wives, “from these the whole earth was populated” (Genesis 9:18-19 NKJV). Truly, God “has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth” (Acts 17:26 NKJV).

An Action And A Reaction

When I think of an action and a reaction, I immediately think of Galations 6:7-8 (NKJV), where Paul states:

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.”

If we engage [sow] in the immoral vices of this world, i.e., “the flesh” (cf. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Galations 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:3-5; 1 Timothy 1:9-10), we will not inherit the blessings of eternity (1 Corinthians 6:10; Galations 5:21; Ephesians 5:5). But, if we choose to follow [sow to ourselves] the teachings of the Bible that the Holy Spirit has provided for us, i.e., “the Spirit,” we will reap or inherit those eternal blessings that God has promised all of those who love Him (2 Timothy 4:7-8). Note the action of sowing and the reaction of reaping in this principle.

To go along with Galations 6:7-8, Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 9:6 (NKJV) regarding our giving:

“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.”

The same principle of sowing and reaping (action and reaction) holds true in our giving. If we sow sparingly, we will reap sparingly. If we sow bountifully, we will reap bountifully (cf. 2 Corinthians 8).

God’s principle of sowing and reaping (action and reaction) is simple. It’s putting the principle into practice that is difficult for many folks, including those in the Lord’s church.
