Today I was in my biology lab’s recitation and we began discussing the different hypotheses pertaining to the creation of the universe. At one point we began talking about the earth and the moon. In short, it is believed that a comet crashed into Earth, shattering to 1/3 its former size. As chunks of debris drifted into space, a large piece got caught in the gravitational pull of the earth. Voila: the moon. Scientists validate this due to the fact that the geological substances of the earth and the moon have been connected to each other.
As we were learning this, I couldn’t help but ask the question, “Why would God make the earth and moon particularly in such a way that it could be hypothesized that they occurred outside of Him?” And then He revealed to me the answer:
If these were different substances, it would be very easy for evolution and the creation of the universe according to scientists to be discredited. But it’s not. In fact, some may consider it to be more evident that evolution occurred than that I exist. But this evidence is secular. Look at where it is rooted: the attempts of man to prove the existence of the earth and its inhabitants outside of me. The evidence is compelling, but I want you to choose me because you trust and believe in me, not because science “can’t figure it out.”
God wants us to choose Him out of LOVE and TRUST. If there were nothing to test our faith in this way, the choice to believe in creation by God wouldn’t mean as much as it does now. We need to confidently choose Him amidst the distractions and the diversions that the world offers.
1 Thess. 2:2
"...but with the help of our God we dared to tell His gospel in the face of strong opposition."
