The Truth About…Biology (Part 2)

Our review of the Christian worldview of biology continues. Christians believe that God created the universe with the literal account of our origins as found in Genesis 1. How do you know that’s true? There are several reasons to believe this.

Colossians 1:16-17 says, “For in him (Jesus) all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” This is one of many Scriptures that speak of God as Creator of all things. Life doesn’t appear by a random assortment of molecules—God creates everything and gives life. Since this must be the explanation, since lifeless matter cannot create life, there are 3 main reasons to believe that God did it: everything has a beginning; every design has a designer; and every moral law has a law-giver.

First, all things have a beginning. Whether it is a new building, a new bird, or a new baby, everything has a start. But the question is who started it? Who built the structure, or gave birth to the animal or human? There is someone who starts this new edifice or life, and all life ultimately emanates from God. All things have a beginning. Who began everything? God did.

Second, every design has a designer. Whether it is a building’s architecture, or the design of the human skeleton, all blueprints have someone who purposefully made the plan for the person or place. Every design has a designer. Who designed everything? God did.

Third, every moral law has a law-giver. Speed limit signs don’t grow out of the ground. A city or village places them there by their authority to insure public safety. So it is with the laws placed in our hearts. We all know that there are certain things that are wrong—lying, stealing, and killing for example. Why do we have this moral code? It is because God put the law in our hearts. Every law has a law-giver. Who is this law-giver? God is.
