|Don't Say "Uncle"
By now, some of you may have read my book on evolution (a single click in my
website will bring up my books--www.billthorntonconquests.com)--and you know that I totally believe in God's Creation.
But meander with my mind for a thought not in the Bible, and that I've never heard or read anywhere in my lifetime:
But a word from the Bible first: Bible readers know that after Jacob worked for Laban to get the
daughter, Rachel, for his wife, he agreed to stay and work for Laban, provided that he could have the spotted, speckled and
brown cattle, sheep and goats for his own. Laban agreed, and Jacob planned birth control, as it were, to get the biggest
part of all of Laban's herds. My question is...was that the beginning of man-made evolution? (Genesis chapter
Go back to Adam and Eve...there were no skin colors of white, black, red, yellow and olive.
But when Man got so smart that he decided to build a tower to heaven (Babel,), God scrambled the languages, which had to be
the start of men finding their own language groups and moving off to themselves (Genesis, chapter 11), possibly bringing about
color and other changes. God gives no explanation.
Now consider this, and remember it's
just my personal thinking...Is it possible that when God created, he made male and female of one kind of bird, one of insects,
one of dogs, cats, and so on, with man making changes through breeding? I admit that this doesn't really hold water,
because we know that as the flood waters receded, Noah sent out a raven, then a dove twice, so there was more than one kind
of bird, even then. By the way, if you wonder how Noah and his three sons fed and cleaned up after all those animals,
you haven't read my Conquest article titled, "Noah and the Ark," to read about the possibility of
hibernation. Just scroll down the left column in my website, to "Noah and the Ark." Not Bible...just
my thinking, and I stress that in the article.
My fancy is that those who call themselves "evolutionists,"
have made their decisions from the wrong reasoning. They say "something" washed up from the ocean, and over
billions of years, evolved into everything else...not answering where the ocean and that "something" came from.
It takes less faith to believe in Jehovah God as the Creator, than to go with the evolution idea.
Stay with the Bible, and believe what it says. Nothing in it has ever been disproved, and there are more than enough
ancient writings to confirm it. Jehovah lives forever.
Use any or all of my information as you see fit. And if you feel someone else might profit
from something on my website, mention it to them. And thanks again. bt
I’ve noticed that some of my Conquest articles have taken on a new complexion since my wife
went to her new home. I don’t feel the same about passing from this life to the next. I like to use the
term “The Promise” that the Lord gives to everyone…that Christians will immediately be with loved
ones who’ve gone on, when our turn comes.
King David used that consolation we see in 2nd Samuel 12:23,
after his son by Bathsheba died; “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.” And of course Jesus
showed the same comfort to us, as He hung on the Cross, when he told the thief hanging beside Him, who had become a believer
there, “Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.”
I’ve written about that in an earlier article, but for those of you who didn’t see it, I’ll give
my interpretation of those words by Christ. “Today” means now…assuring us that we won’t be
put in a waiting area until some time in the future. And “shalt thou be with me” means that He will go to
the same place with this person who’s dying at His side.
And the Bible clearly shows that the word “Paradise” and
“Heaven” are the same place. Revelation 2:7 is enough to convince us: “He who has an ear, let
him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers, I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which
is in the paradise of God.” And the tree of life serves double duty, also indicating that we’ll eat the
best of foods in Heaven.
The only ones who
should fear death, are those of you who haven’t given your heart to the Lord. I beg you to take care of that,
at this very moment. It’s the only time you’re guaranteed.
