“The heavens are telling…”
On one of my visits to the USA I asked a young lady if she knew where to find New Zealand on a map. She said, “Yes, it is those islands off the east coast of Australia.” That is not the way that the average Kiwi would put it, but impressive all the same. It is no secret that New Zealand is a stunningly beautiful country. The South Island is famous for a reason. If you take the ferry from Wellington to Picton it won’t take long to see that the best of my country is before you. Your arrival in Queenstown will convince you that you have just found the jewel in the crown of New Zealand’s natural wonders. It is then an even greater wonder that the beauty of this land has been credited to the demon of Evolution. Even Christians, afraid to be left out in the cold by the scientific community have bowed the knee in compromise. They have made the God of heaven a minor player in the myth of creation-by-evolution. Strangely, He who holds everything together by the power of His Word has been forced into a paradigm where His writings (the Bible), are a ‘best man can do’ effort to explain the wonders of that which is. Equally strange is the determination to ignore the messages that God is sending back through those telescopes which are seeing galaxies beyond number, and those microscopes which are uncovering worlds within worlds. But stranger still, as the science of genetics pulls us back toward our true genesis, we see – not proof of existence-by-accident – but overwhelming evidence that all of this is intricately designed by a Creator. “The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands” (Psalm 19:1).
