THE IMPORTANCE OF ADAM AND EVE
RECENTLY, I heard a conservative news-anchor pose a question to Dr. Ben Carson who is running for President. I think and I hope he was just getting Dr. Ben used to the media asking him “gotcha” questions because I know this newsman thinks a lot of Dr. Ben Carson. But if this is the case, then I think he just should have advised him and warned him privately instead of before millions of viewers, to appear to be trying to “put him on the spot” with such an elitist question. The question was concerning whether or not Dr. Ben believes in a literal “Adam and Eve,” and in a young age of the earth.
What bothers me most about such questions is the inference that such a question has such relevance to a man having the proper intellect and qualities to be President of this nation. Now, as a Christian, I say that the ANSWERS to such a question indeed have great relevance, but for the liberal elitist, it is truly a “gotcha” question because they want to expose a candidate to his own “stupidity” and “ignorance.” Just as if ‘Educated people today no longer believe such biblical stories are real or literal. That belief is for an ignorant age long gone. It is archaic, old-fashioned and a sign of gross ignorance. Almost no one believes that stuff anymore.”
So the idea is that “if this famous and brilliant brain surgeon is dumb enough to believe there was a literal pair called Adam and Eve, then he is not so smart after all, and we don’t need such ignorance in the White House!” The real truth is that those elitists who think they are oh so sophisticated are themselves the fools! “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.”‘ [Psalm 14:1 )
In fact, I heard another much-used panelist on the same network say that “evolution is true,” and he addressed those who deny t to “get over it.” But he himself admits to being a “low level atheist.” But his very statement, like the “gotcha” question above, implies that if you believe otherwise, then you are just not with it, and you are hanging on to the gross ignorance of past ages. But they are the modern-day SCOFFERS that the Word of God warns us about! As far as the mass media goes, they seem to be in the majority. If they can’t turn us all into atheistic evolutionists, then they will at least inform us that the stories in the Bible are not literally true and they will try to shame us into silence and belittle us by placing us with the cave- men who knew no better.
NOW I WANT to show why these foolish scoffers are themselves ignorant and without God in this world, and where their contentions leave them— which is without God. This is really what they want. “Away with such a biblical God that would rule over and ruin our rights to live as we want,” with no eternal consequences. Read Psalm 2 about the raging of such ‘heathen.”
So what IF evolution is true; and what IF there were no literal being created on earth as “Adam and Eve”? Such a belief in either [evolution and/or “no literal Adam and Eve”) leaves these modern-day scoffers without God and without hope. They seek to enjoy life without a God that holds them accountable to Him for their sins, and without the need of a Savior from those sins. To them, what is a sin anyway but a mere human mistake. All this is being taught to our children in public schools.
After all, if we came forth from some slime in the water, and then developed into an ape, and then a man, when did that creature become a living SOUL, when did he begin possessing a God-given soul? The idea is that he DID NOT. Thus belief even in God becomes archaic; since we don’t have a soul ac- countable to some imagined God, then we can do whatever we please and we are the masters of our own fate, just as William Ernest Henley states in his Invictus:
“It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.”
No wonder we see such violence on the earth. With “no God,” then there are no “commandments” of God to keep. We are just animals anyway, so WHY NOT ACT LIKE IT. Truth is, though, fallen humans are acting much WORSE than animals, as a consequence of such ungodly teaching. Such is the logical result of “evolution.”
WHAT? NO ADAM & EVE??
Oh, today we can have “Adam and Steve,” but no “Adam and Eve”! What is “God-instituted marriage” anyway, but a relic of the past? [There are those SCOFFERS again!]
Really now, if there is no Adam and Eve, then where did marriage come from anyway? And have you thought about THIS?: Just where does this place Jesus Christ who is “God manifest in the flesh, ” the very Creator of alI things? Being God, did He not know alI things, as well as being Creator of them? See the first chapter of John. Don’t you realize that if the story of Adam and Eve was some made-up myth, that Jesus would have known it and warned us? But instead He ENDORSED AND CONFIRMED the story by making reference to marriage as being between one man and one woman. Example:
“He saith unto them, ‘Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but FROM THE BEGINNING it was not so. ” [See Matthew 19:8]
What “beginning’ was that? To what was this Perfect One referring? Why, it was to the VERY ACCOUNT OF THE CREATION OF ADAM AND EVE! Yes, that account that we find recorded in Genesis!
So if there is no literal “Adam & Eve,” then Jesus Christ must not have known what He was talking about. Then how could He be THE Savior? Oh, I forgot, man does not need a savior because the evolutionists taught us that we have no soul that is accountable to God anyway. HOGWASH!
CAN YOU BELIEVE SUCH HOGWASH?
These modern-day scoffers and atheists have worked hard to tear down the very foundations of life and eternity.” You may not have thought about it, but by tearing down even the foundation stones of Creation and Marriage, started by God Almighty, by Jesus Christ, in the Genesis creation of the world and in the creation of the first pair and parents on earth, they destroy even the need for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. And the result of the rejection of these foundation stones, even robs them of everlasting AS SATAN ATTEMPTED TO DO WHEN HE DECEIVED ADAM AND EVE!
It is just as Walter Scott said in his poem Marmion,
Oh, what a tangled web we weave
When first we practice to deceive!
That is the legacy of these modern-day scoffers and our evolutionistic public school educators and the institutions of “higher learning” like our colleges and universities. Ken Ham says, ‘Really, billions of years and evolution are an anti-God religion, and we must recognize them as such. Satan is very clever and is using the same attack he used on Eve, the Genesis 3 attack of “did God really say?” to make people question God’s clear Word. Ultimately, [Satan] wants to lead people to reject God entirely, like Dawkins does. This is why it is so important to stand on the authority of God’s Word from the very beginning, give solid answers, and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to a dying world.’ Look at the media; look at the schools, look at the WORLD without God, even some churches—all rejecting the biblical view of God, jettisoning His very Word. “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? The Lord is in His holy temple, the Lord is in heaven: His eyes behold, His eyelids try, the children of men.
“The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence His soul hateth. Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup. For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; His countenance doth behold the upright.” [See Psalm 11]
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? He that sitteth in the Heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him.” [See Psalm 2.]
“For evildoers shall be cut off: but those who wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place AND IT SHALL NOT BE.” (Psalm 37:9,10)
