If we carefully consider our organs, we can understand the magnificence of creation. The pupil of the eye is a wonderful organ. Depending on the level of illumination, the pupil dilates or constricts to regulate the amount of light passing through it. The lens then focuses the light on the retina. Also the eye displays size constancy, in that, even as an object is moved farther away, we see it as more or less invariant in size. Moreover, though we have two eyes, both eyes look at the same object. Also both the eyes are situated on the same side of the face . If one eye were to be at the back, we know very well that we can not hold our attention to any single thing. Thus, as we analyze our organs one by one, we come across numerous marvels. Then how can we remain unbelieving that all these things have been created by God with great wisdom? We shall consider yet another organ. What is that? Brain is the most important of all. It is the seat of thought. But no one knows how it performs that function. In the same way, what we see, hear and learn are registered in the brain. The brain can forget or retain some of them. We have no right to ask why some things are forgotten and why even the things that we want to forget are retained. This is also a wonder.
Brain is the centre of mental processes where sensations are registered and actions are initiated. Information from sense organs reach the brain and in turn the brain sends out instructions and warnings to various organs. Is it not the grace of God that the brain can automatically operate like an electronic switchboard in a telephonic exchange, handling incoming and outgoing messages so well! The lens of the eye focuses the light passing through the eye in the retina where the images of what we see are registered. However the brain and nervous system help in giving colors, features and dimensions to those images. Thus considering the brain alone, can any right thinking person fail to conclude that these are marvelous works of God who is infinite in wisdom and a wonderful creator? Let us now analyze the creation as accounted in the book of Genesis. How eautifully and orderly have each step been given!
There is room to suspect that our evolutionist friends might have derived the basis of their theory from the above account of creation! In second verse of the first chapter of Genesis, it is mentioned that the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. The evolutionists have given a twist to the above verse and claim that in the beginning, a life giving matter called protoplasm was floating on waters. Moreover in the 20th verse we read that God said, "Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens". Based on this evolutionists claim that evolution began in water from where the birds emerged!
Nevertheless, they reject the Creator of whom the scriptures speak with great clarity. The scriptures say that it was God who created man. We read that God formed man out of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. Man remains powerless to know his future despite inventing so many powerful things. Men ruling over vast lands are not able to exercise control over their own bodily desires. Man could halt huge ships on seas by dropping anchor but finds himself unable to have control over his mind. The man who manages to control his vehicle at his will even at tremendous speeds, is baffled to find himself unable to bring his mind under control when it crosses its boundaries. What is the cause? Isn't it because man has two characteristics coexisting, one of which is noble and the other of low nature! In the same way man realizes that within himself both good and bad are struggling for supremacy.
All this explains quite clearly the existence of God's breath within man who was made from the dust of the ground. Finally without creation our gospel will be in vain. If we believe in evolution, there is no place for sin, satan, heaven and hell and therefore there is no need for the Saviour to come! How can there be soul for the descendants of animal? Therefore only those who aspire for animal-life think of themselves to have originated from animals. Brother, with all this we know for certain that there is a God who is the Creator of all that we see.
The author of the epistle to the Hebrews concludes categorically in 11th chapter 3rd verse that the evolutionary postulate is wrong by saying, "The things which are seen were not made of things which are visible". Further, as we read from Job 12:7 onwards, "Now ask the beasts, and they will teach you; and the birds of the air, and they will tell you; Or speak to the earth and it will teach you; and the fish of the sea will explain to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, in whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind?"
Will not this challenge penetrate your heart? Ask God.
Bible and Science (continuation)
Man should find God. He should come to Jesus. Jesus calls him. He will not have true peace and happiness until he comes to God ; What little good life that he has at present also will pass off from him. Man should leave ungodly life, a life of his own liking. He should come to God. He should live in fellowship with God. He should do the will of God. That is the life made out for man. That alone will bring him real peace and form a solution for all his problems.
God is the life-force of man. Abandoning this life-force is the root cause of all his mental disturbances, confusions and hopelessness. You should look for God. Search and diligently inquire of Him (Zep. 1:6). If you search for Him with your whole heart, you will find Him (Jer. 29:13-14).
You will find peace.
Blessed is the man who finds God.
