Blind Faith

Evolutionist atheists just "know" macroevolution to be happening, apparently intuitively, from only tidbits of data here and there, that seem to them to somehow represent precursors, first steps of actual macroevolution (change from one kind into another). And, believe it or not, that's as far as the "evidence" for macroevolution goes! Microevolution is simply adaptation within species. Macroevolution, in fact, has never actually happened. “But that's not the same as having blind faith,” they say! Noooooo. 

On the other hand, Christians do not have blind faith in Jesus Christ.

But set apart the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear... (1 Peter 3:15)

We have myriad evidence from the innerrant Word of God, biblical prophecies, theology, history, philosophy, biology, archeology and geology, among other academic disciplines, to correlate our personal relationship and experience with Jesus Christ. It is not a blind faith, but a defensible, reasonable faith. In addition to this tangible support for historical Christianity, Jesus doesn't just show us the way or give us truth or life. He is the Way. He is Truth. And He is the Life. 

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." (John 14:6)

Searching for evidence of molecules-to-man evolution (from goo-to the zoo-to you), I looked to the dirt, but I found a complete lack of remains of evolving, transitional creatures in the fossil record. I looked deep inside the living cell, but all I saw were intricate systems of design, operating like machines. I looked around and above, and I discovered a finely tuned earth and universe that could not exist but by a miracle of circumstances magically coalescing, and that in the words of scientists! So, I turned to the scientists for their evidence of macroevolution, and what did they say? I heard dozens of opposing theories, admissions of lack of evidence and grandiose ideas of currently non existent evidence to be gloriously found on some unknown date in the future. Adaptation within a species is a fact. Change from one kind of an animal to another has never happened and will never happen, because it is impossible. 

In the beginning (time) God created the heavens (space) and the earth (matter). (Genesis 1:1)

Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind.." (Genesis 1:24)

To the evolutionist, I say, "when the naive impression that the 'experts' have found all the answers, are competent to do so and are trustworthy in their confidence, when that belief is finally destroyed by the facts, then the reality of Who created all things and sustains all things will finally be liberated for your acknowledgment." I hope that happens while you still have time to trust in His name. 

This is the 'stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.' Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. (Acts 4:11-12)

For "whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)
