Consider Circular Reasoning!

Wikipedia has it thus:  Circular reasoning (Latin: circulus in probando, “circle in proving”;[1] also known as circular logic) is a logical fallacy in which the reasoner begins with what they are trying to end with.[2] The components of a circular argument are often logically valid because if the premises are true, the conclusion must be true. Circular reasoning is not a formal logical fallacy but a pragmatic defect in an argument whereby the premises are just as much in need of proof or evidence as the conclusion, and as a consequence the argument fails to persuade.

“a logical fallacy in which the reasoner begins with what they are trying to end with.”  As applied to the age of the Earth, scientists who believe the theory of evolution have taken a 19th century theory concerning the age of fossils in sedimentary rock and used it to date the rock containing similar fossils elsewhere.  They use the fossils to date the rock and rock to date the fossils—circulus in probando—it begins and ends in the theory of the age of the fossils.  It is, therefore, a logical fallacy! “A fallacy is the use of invalid or otherwise faulty reasoning,”(Wikipedia)

Our education system has indoctrinated everyone under its influence into this fallacious reasoning as if it were absolute truth!  The only truth in it is that there are fossils in sedimentary rock.  EVERYTHING beyond that is conjecture and theory. A theory requires proof. A theory of itself proves nothing!

Science is supposed to be about finding truth; make observations and theorize concerning cause.  The problem with the Theory of Evolution is that a theory was proposed specifically to reject God’s revelation of creation and then the search was on to find supporting evidence!  Denial of truth never, ever changes the truth, but it can sure make the ‘wisdom of the wise into foolishness’ when the denial is exposed for what it truly is!

Remember ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’?  It was the truth revealed.  The Theory of Evolution is exactly the Emperor’s new clothes trying to hide the truth of creation.  Eventually everyone will see it for what it really is.  Pray the Spirit will open the eyes of the blind.

Consider Evolution!

The Geological Column, that is the layers of sedimentary rock containing fossils that paleontologists have theorized shows the millions of years of history that they theorize proves the Earth has to be millions to billions of years old, is real enough.  Are the evolutionary theories concerning it correct? No.

The revelations concerning cellular structure and DNA have shown beyond doubt that for macro-evolution (the change from one species into another) to occur, there would have to be millions of individual and very specific changes to the billions of very specific molecular protein codes which define the creature or plant (or any living organism).  ALL of these specific changes would have to be made simultaneously for a viable new species to occur.  The most knowledgeable geneticists have no clue what that combination of changes would have to be even for the simplest organism to become a different kind of organism AND it would have to (in just about all cases) have to occur in both male and female versions at the same time so the reproductive process could happen.  To be clear, micro-evolution are changes that occur within species and although these changes are sometimes used to try to prove Darwinian Evolution, that is not what is in view here.

Bear in mind: The theory of evolution is that all living organisms began by the chance happening of a single living organism coming into existence and then evolving into a different species and another and another, etc. “From chemical rich slime and a lightning bolt the first life sprang into being! Eventually, over the eons, man!”

There are those who are not sold on the idea of evolution as the foundation of our existence.  Some are even scientists.  Some are statisticians and they have tried to calculate the odds of all the changes necessary happening to produce the event of a new species coming into existence.  To put the result in some sort of perspective, you specifically, have the same chance of winning  the power-ball lottery at least a billion times in a row as for one species to turn into another and breed true.

Make no mistake, belief in evolution is a religion, a religion that is rooted and founded in rejecting the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the Father of Jesus Christ.  Evolutionists are willing to believe anything that casts doubt on the Creator God because they categorically reject that God’s moral law is supreme and they will be held accountable.

There is no middle ground, no fence to straddle.  God will not be mocked.  He told us the history of the world and His Creation cries out to us the truth of His handiwork.  Because there is not one shred of evidence to prove its validity, the belief in Darwinian Evolution is willful blindness to His truth.

“Faith is:  the substance of fossils hoped for,  the evidence of links unseen.” M.M.

Consider Faith

What is faith?  The Bible says it is the evidence of things not seen, the substance of things hoped for.  But what is it today in what is, arguably, post-Christian America?

Faith is basically what I believe to be true but can’t directly prove; but it is subject to change if new information comes up.  Its like planned obsolescence: something newer and more believable is almost sure to come up, so my faith, my belief is always subject to change.  That’s not TRUE faith.  Sorry.

So, what IS true faith? Well first, what is the source of true faith; saving faith; faith that really counts and is not subject to change because its source is unchanging?  For by Grace are you saved, through faith, and THAT not of yourselves lest any man boast!   What does THAT mean?  By Grace, through faith and that NOT of yourselves!    

By God’s Grace alone you are given the inestimable gift of TRUE faith; the ability to believe the Truth of God, that He has revealed to us through the Scriptures of the Holy Bible.  I see the eyes rolling from here, so please let me spell it out:  

We are children of Adam and as such have nothing in us that could or would choose to believe His Truth if left to our natural selves.  Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.  It is by Grace we are saved.  It is only the Regenerate heart that is capable of seeing (really accepting) the truth of the kingdom of God!  It is only the Regenerate heart that believes the evidence of the kingdom of God.  It is only the Regenerate heart that feels the substance of the kingdom of God.  The true faith of which God is speaking is not what we believe, but what we know beyond any reasonable doubt about HIS truth. It is not simply that I believe in Jesus Christ.  It is that I know He is the Only Begotten Son of the Father.  It is that the Father of Jesus Christ is the One True God of creation.  There is no other.  It is that the Word became Flesh and dwelt among us.  It is that The Father gave His Son, a willing sacrifice so that you and I could have eternal life!
