God created every living creature that moves

And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.” So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day. Genesis 1:20-23

How did life begin? That has been a question that science has been trying to answer for as long as there have been scientists. Yet the Israelites were given the answer over four thousand years ago. God created all life on earth. And, if life exists elsewhere in the universe, God created that life also.

One of the greatest puzzles in biology today is how life first began. When one is looking at this problem from a totally naturalistic point of view it can cause people to come up with some interesting ideas. One such idea is panspermia, the theory that life did not originate on earth but somewhere else and hitched a ride on some stellar object such as a comet or was deliberately sent to earth by intelligent life that developed elsewhere. The problem with this theory is it does not answer the question as to how life began. All panspermia does it push the origin further back in time.

Those who believe life developed on earth believe it started either in a warm pool of water or maybe a hydrothermal vent where the raw ingredients of life came together to form the first cell. What is missing is how exactly this happened and to date no one has been able to duplicate this in the lab. It seems that no matter how hard we try we just cannot get the precursors to life to form a living cell. This is not for a lack of trying. Scientists have been working on this since the early 1950’s.

Of course if you can take your eyes of naturalism for a few seconds, the Bible tells us how life first began on earth. It required an intelligent agent, God. When we take God out of the picture we stumble around in the dark. Trying this and trying that and failing at every turn. We only have to look at how complex each living organism is to see that such complexity is not a random event. Even the most primitive one celled organism is a highly complex machine. DNA is the most compact and information rich code known. Our DNA holds all the information needed to make a human. No other code in the universe has such ability.

Random chance or God that is the choice we have. A dice roll or intelligence. Which is more likely to create life?

Have a blessed day,

David

About dwwork

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David

    Loved that closing statement David ….Random chance or God that is the choice we have. A dice roll or intelligence. Which is more likely to create life? of course as you shared only God can give the breath of life, man has never been able to create variable life.

    I need your help David in understanding why Evolutionists believe that The classes are not pre-ordained ( see below ) is it just because of a Platypus etc, am I missing something, we know they are a Sea and Land creature like the Penguins even if both are classified by man as different Kinds, just as we have different physical appendages so do animals in God’s Creation, God used a Blue Print with great variety. I have never seen a Platypus change into a Horse or a Person, of course I’m not sure David if you have a duckbill but if so I hope I have not ruffled your feathers.

    I’m not a Scientist, although I have done Voluntary work for Creation Ministries in Australia, which was a blessing as I was able to spend time learning about new and different resources that have been found to confirm Creation and that shows the error of Evolution. I believe what God tells me in my heart and I don’t question if it’s not Truth, because I have asked and received His wisdom and I know He will show or teach me so that there are no doubts left and this is sometimes by what others share like yourself David but regardless of who shares, what is shared must be confirmed in Scriptures.

    Genesis1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his KIND, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

    Genesis1:12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his KIND, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his KIND: and God saw that it was good.

    Genesis 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their KIND, and every winged fowl after his KIND and God saw that it was good.

    Genesis1:24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his KIND, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his KIND and it was so.

    Genesis1:25 And God made the beast of the earth after his KIND and cattle after their KIND, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his KIND and God saw that it was good.

    Genesis 6:20 Of fowls after their KIND, and of cattle after their KIND, of every creeping thing of the earth after his KIND, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

    Genesis 7:14 They, and every beast after his KIND, and all the cattle after their KIND, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his KIND, and every fowl after his KIND, every bird of every sort.

    Genesis 8:19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their KIND, went forth out of the ark.

    1 Corinthians 15:38-40 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased Him, and to every seed his own body. All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one KIND of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

      Honestly, I think it is because they refuse to believe in God. Even the lack of evidence for evolution does not seem to bother them. They just either ignore the holes or point to someone like Richard Dawkins as an authority. I have been in an ongoing conversation through my posts on evolution with a believer in evolution and have asked him for sources for the statements he has made. I fear that as in the past I will get some Wikipedia links and that will be it. Of course they also deny the truth of the Bible so any attempt to use it as a source is rebuffed. My only hope is to continue to engage and maybe plant a few seeds. I too am not a scientist but I have always had an extreme interest in all things scientific and especially evolution. For the first 45 years of my life I was convinced that evolution was true. it was only as I tried to blend evolution with God that I became aware of how little proof there really is for macroevolution. Then about 10 years ago I was skimming one of or kid’s science test and saw how mush misinformation was in the textbooks our kids use. Hopefully this answered some of your question. I will be posting more on evolution over the next few month. It seems to take about two weeks for each post. You might checkout the comments on my first evolution post.

      Have a blessed day,

      David

    Thank you David, I do have some very good links that support Creation some were on the Link I gave you before about the 6 days of Creation but there are more. ( see below ) yes I agree about Wikipedia links they may have other helpful information but yes they seek to put Christianity in a bad light, so sad for them, time is short.

    Blog Post – http://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2012/05/05/news-flash-missing-link-found/

    I have shared my focus on Evolution, more than once on our Blog yes it is a little bit tongue in cheek but sadly even some Christians would prefer to believe what man says then God …if we want God’s wisdom we ask for it, then when we read His inspired word in the Bible or share and listen to others we understand His Truth and are not deceived or have doubts.

    Let me know David how you go with the Links it would be so good to have your views, not often but even Christian Scientists can be in error, we need to always confirm everything with Scripture by the empowering of The Holy Spirit.

    Thanks again David – Anne
