Life is Precious

In many ways, the Creation and Evolution debate is just a small part of the battle between good and evil. Our best defense is our faith and our strongest weapon is His word. The weapons of the enemy are lies and falsehood. Therefore, the battlefield is one of truth. This is where the enemy has attacked … so this is where we must defend ourselves … and science (which is not our enemy) is caught in the middle.

This website is meant to be thought provoking and to raise many questions. Does the attack through evolution have any merit? Is there evidence of Creation? What do you do when you realize that life was created rather than evolved? How does it affect your decisions and goals? If we have evidence, ought we not fear and tremble before the coming judgment?

For myself, it has been a long journey of discovery and joy. Although not a goal, it has strengthened my faith, presented a clearer understanding of Scripture, and given a much deeper peace in my soul.

There are physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects to life. Science is limited to only the physical aspects of life. It can help us gain knowledge of how the physical works, but it does not give us wisdom or show what benefits or harms life in many other ways. It lacks the ability to choose good and evil. Incomplete data and knowledge can lead to terrible decisions. Often, the risks are underestimated in the pursuit of knowledge, especially when it becomes a business.

During this lifetime, each person can see the Eternal’s creation. Putting the value of plants, animals, and man into proper perspective will lead to the proper expression of love and give some insight into how to care for the environment. It can also help us appreciate the amazing variety that the Creator placed within the kinds so they can fill the world with color and beauty.

When one seeks the answers to life from the One who created life, one finds peace, hope, joy, and love. We learn that we are created with a purpose, that life has value and meaning, that life goes on even after the death of the body. When we know the answers to the questions of life, it will produce a sense of purpose and meaning that can give us direction and goals on which to move forward. It is a means to life abundant and a life with blessing.

Life was created with a purpose by the Creator. It was no accident. It was not a random chance of chemicals coming together. It was a special act. Knowing this should make a person consider how precious life really is. For man to live life to the fullest, he must understand where he came from, where he really is, where he should be, and where he can be once again.
