Faith Filled Friday: Creation

September 12, 2020

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1

I have believed in creation all my life. Evolution makes no sense to me and it does not have all the answers either. Some who believe in evolution have told me they don’t know where the earth or planets came from – they were just there. Human life came from a single cell that crawled out of the water.

When I look at the diversity around me I have to believe in God creating it all. All of it works together. If a single cell started it all, one has to ask why. What made it change? How could a single cell change into a cornstalk, a hippopotamus, a soaring eagle, or a human being?

Some say God is not real because they have never seen him or know where he is. We don’t know where God came from. Does it matter? I don’t think so. We are finite beings so it is hard to understand infinity.

I found several verses in 1 Corinthians which explained more. Chapter 15, verses 35-44 are talking about the resurrected body, but I think it still applies to our creation.

38: But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.

39: All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is on kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

40: There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

41: There is one glory of the sun, and another of the moon, and another of the stars: for one star differth from another star in glory.

I understand these verses to say that we are all different. I did not not come from a fish and none of us evolved from a monkey.

Our earth and the rest of the universe run efficiently like a well-oiled machine. I doubt that could occur with a random toss of planets. When I dropped my bag of marbles on the floor they all rolled in different directions. A few bumped into a table leg, some hit the rug and rolled along the edge, and others bumped into another marble. That’s the way I see evolution – a confusion of rolling marbles.

My apologies for being late for Faith Filled Friday again. Connie T.
