LETTER: Scripture supports creation from God
To the Editor:
There is one reason people "choose" endorsing the theory of evolution — to justify that they can ignore or reject God and ease their conscience. Evolution makes no more sense than believing Mount Rushmore designed itself. It didn't and the world didn't create itself. We are complex and believing that something evolved from nothing into life and for another miracle of male and female appearing at the same time would take more to believe in evolution than creation by God!
Maybe Travis Kriens (the letter writer in the Dec. 8 edition) has never thought it through. If someone believes in God and his plan of salvation, accepting Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior to forgive anyone wanting forgiveness for sins committed, if that were not true, what would one be out? However, if the Bible is true, (it is), if one dies in their sins without accepting Jesus as the only hope of forgiveness, that person would spend an eternity separated from God in a place prepared for the devil and his angels. (From Matthew 25:14-46.)
Romans 3:23: "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." Romans 6:23: "The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Hebrews 9:27: "It is appointed unto man once to die, but after this the judgment."
II Peter 3:9: "The Lord is not slack concerning his promises, but is long suffering to us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." John 3:16: "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever would believe in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
The good news — although we all are sinners, God still loves us and wants to spend eternity with everyone He has created. It is so simple, yet it's up to each of us to make that decision. Joshua 24:15 says: "Choose you this day who you will serve, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!"
