By Faith

Hebrews 11:3 says “By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.”

It occurred to me, as I pondered the evolution vs creation debate, that this debate is like a trial. Both sides are assured that their side is the correct side. Both sides have their supporters in the gallery. Currently (according to conventional wisdom) most of the evidence seems to support evolution.

We have all seen those lawyer shows (like Matlock) where the defendant looks guilty as sin until the eyewitness shows up unexpectedly, the one piece of irrefutable evidence appears, or the alibi is confirmed in dramatic fashion.

I contend that in the court of man, the evolutionist camp looks to be winning. The creationist camp is on the ropes. But according to Hebrews 11:3, our faith will be vindicated one day, because God DID create everything out of nothing. The evolutionists will ultimately lose, because the Great Eyewitness will soon appear, and there will be no question as to the validity of the Bible.

So take heart, Christian. If faith were easy, it would be no more faith. Trust God, that what He has said is true, and He will do that which He has promised.

so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:10-11
