Creation Devotional January 4 - History

Daily Devotional - January 4

History

 

When we hear the word “cavemen,” we often think of primitive people wearing bear skin clothing and carrying wooden clubs. In fact, people have lived in caves throughout history; some even live in caves today. In the Yellow River region of China, some 20 million people are still living in caves. These caves are carved out of silty soil and are packed so hard that they do not need support. The caves usually measure 10 feet by 13 feet and extend 20 to 25 feet into the hillside. They are warm in the winter and cool during the hot summer. They have many modern comforts such as plumbing, electricity, and even cable television. Caves are a great place to live, to which 20 million Chinese can attest. Are these people primitive? Hardly! Based purely on evolutionary ideas, people assume that humans who lived in caves were primitive brutes. In chapter 10 of Genesis we find the account of the tower of Babel. As people migrated across the earth, some sought shelter in caves as they built more permanent homes. Today we often find their archeological remains in caves. Neanderthal man is one such example. The fact that they lived in caves did not make them primitive; it is just another housing choice.

 

Then he came there to a cave and lodged there…

~ 1 Kings 19:9

Daily Devotional - January 3

Geology

 

Imagine that you drive into a deserted town and happen to stop at a closed restaurant. You go around to the back of the building and peer in the window, and there on the kitchen counter is a stack of food-encrusted plates. By looking at the plates, you really cannot know how long they have been there nor can you know how much time passed between the placing of the first plate at the bottom of the stack and the plate located at the top of the stack. It could have been mere seconds from the placing of the first plate until the placing of the last plate. Or perhaps the stack was made on a weekend or the dishwasher had a day off and days passed between the placement of the plate at the bottom of the stack and the placement of the final plate at the top of the stack. The stack itself reveals nothing about the time frame – only that the bottom plate was deposited first and the top plate was deposited last.

 

In a similar way, the geologic layers of the earth, in no way, prove an enormous age for the earth. The sedimentary layers are very much like this stack of plates. They simply reveal which plates (layers) were laid down first during the worldwide flood of Noah and which plates (layers) were laid down during the final stages. The geological column is the record of what was laid down during the year-long Flood of Noah’s time, not how old the layers are.

 

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Creation Devotional January 2 - Biology

Daily Devotional - January 2

Biology

 

Imagine an ant hill made out of pine needles seven feet high! That’s what you can find in Northern Europe and cold Siberia. These wood ants don’t build ant hills out of sand but collect massive amounts of pine needles and pile them on tree stumps. The rotting vegetation causes heat, providing warmth during the winter, and during the summer, the pine needle pile is full of holes and tunnels for ventilation and air conditioning. It is steep-sided to shed water. To prevent fungal or bacterial infections, the ants apply pine resin to their bodies as a disinfectant. These wood ants know what to do; they do it because of instinct. Instinct is what God has built into these wood ants, so they know how to build their pine needle nest, how to ventilate it and how not to get infections. All this is provided by a God who takes care of every detail. If He cares this much for a wood ant, how much more does He care for you?

 

(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly
Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

Christian Truth

 

We forget our past at peril to our future.

 

Almost every university in America was started as a Bible college in order to train future leaders in various areas of biblical knowledge. The central purpose of our centers of knowledge and training (universities) was to link knowledge to biblical truth. Yet today in many universities, morality has become relative, sin is no longer even acknowledged as real, there is no unifying source of truth, and the Bible is ignored or ridiculed. But God’s Word remains the foundation of all truth whether acknowledged or not. For instance:
• Almost all LAWS are based on some view of limiting “bad” behavior and enforcing “good” behavior. Yet with no basis outside of humanity to determine right from wrong (such as the Bible), the persuasive, powerful, or majority simply define right and wrong to suit themselves while laws become numerous, arbitrary, and twisted. Society deteriorates. That is exactly what is happening in America today.
• There are only two possible explanations for our existence – either distinctly different types of animals were created or simple organisms (such as bacteria) turned into more complicated things (such as people). Once the biblical account of life’s origins is rejected, much of BIOLOGY is simply misinterpreted.
• ECONOMICS is a biblical concept based on the stewardship of creation in order to develop the resources of the earth in a way that respects people as having been made in God’s image and pleases God. With the rejection of a Creator, economics has no ultimate purpose.
• Rejection of the reality of a Biblical world-covering flood means that most of GEOLOGY and the time frame of history get distorted and misinterpreted.
• Even the study of THEOLOGY becomes distorted. Theism acknowledges God as being ultimately in control (The Creator is God). Atheism assumes God does not exist, so the human intellect is supreme (I am God). Pantheism believes that creation itself is all that there is and therefore worships creation (Everything is God). Since a biblical God is left out of a students’ thinking throughout our public school system, the behavior of many students reflects some blend of atheism and pantheism. We ignore the foundational purpose of our universities (one truth) at peril to our future.

 

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.
~ Romans 1:22
