Neither Creation nor evolution can be conclusively proven by scientific methods. So whether you choose to believe in Creation or evolution, it takes faith. And for faith to be sustained and grow, it must eventually be rewarded with some evidence, however small. Here is where creationists, and Christians in particular, are at a distinct advantage. Evolutionists have their faith bolstered every time a new discovery is made that seems to support the theory of evolution, only to have their faith shaken when that new “evidence” is proven scientifically unsound. Creationists, on the other hand, have their faith rewarded every day. “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork” (Psalm 19:1). From the synchronization of the cosmos to the wonders of nature and the intricacies of the DNA molecule, everything points to the hand of an intelligent designer behind this universe of ours.

And that’s not all. Those who have made a personal direct connection with the Designer through His Son, Jesus Christ, can come to know the Author of the biblical account of Creation. Through His loving presence in our lives, through the answers we receive to our prayers, and through the truth and freedom He reveals to us through His Word, our faith is continually rewarded and strengthened. Just as truly loving human relationships engender faith and trust between the parties, all that we receive from God helps us to trust Him and take Him at His word. Because the other things He tells us in the Bible ring true, we are able to view the Genesis account of Creation from a position of faith-not the faith of a gullible simpleton, but that of a thinking, sensible person who bases his or her decision on the character of a close and trusted Friend who is the author of the account.

Would you like to know the Creator and Author by accepting Jesus’ love into your heart as your Savior and Friend? You can do so by saying a prayer like this:

Jesus, I want to know You personally, so I invite You to come into my heart. Thank You for dying for me that my sins may be forgiven and so I can have the free gift of salvation. Thank You for creating this world and giving me eternal life in the world to come. Help me to learn more of You so that I can help others as You have helped me. Amen!
