“So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind.” (Genesis 1:21)
The “age-old” question, “Which came first? The chicken or the egg?” that so many in the world quibble about is easy to answer when one reads what God’s word says about it. So what does it say? Right there in Genesis 1:21 you have it. First the bird, then the baby.
Another question that so many in the religious world quibble about is, “Which comes first? Baptism or salvation?” The answer to this question can be found just as easy as the answer to the previous question if we would only let God’s word give us the answer.
“He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.” (Mark 16:16)
So what does God’s word say about it? Right there in Mark 16:16 you have it. First baptism, then salvation.
Now, why do so many in the religious world trust God’s word when it comes to Genesis 1:21, but they can’t trust it when it comes to Mark 16:16? It’s something to think about. EA
Science (N.A.S.A.) is currently in the middle of spending astronomical amounts of money in search of life beyond our little blue planet. They have super-telescopes hurdling through space in hopes of catching a glimpse of a “familiar” looking planet. They have sent and are sending hi-tech machines to make photographs, collect soil samples and compile all sorts of data from the planet Mars. Other planets such as Jupiter have been specifically targeted recently too.
Why all the scurrying around from one end of the solar system to the other and beyond? It’s all in search of life. Scientists are chomping at the bit to find the smallest, minutest and most microscopic sized traces of life somewhere other than here.
There’s something funny about that. Sadly, it’s how hypocritical science’s (or maybe some scientists) definition of life can be. If they ever found some microscopicorganism in some piece of ice the headlines would proudly and boldly proclaim that LIFE had been discovered. The national news media would talk nonstop about the LIFE that has changed the world. All the talk around the water-cooler would revolve around the LIFE found in outer space. Yes, that little LIFE would be cherished and held in high regard among science’s intellectuals despite its little, tee tiny or even microscopic size.
Oh how wonderful it would be if all of the same people who would shed tears if something happened to that “little living micro-organism” would give the same amount of credence to an unborn child!
Why are so many people willing to disregard and downgrade the LIFE of an unborn child to a choice? Why are so many “educated” people so willing to apply the term “life” to anything but a human embryo?
There is life out there, but He won’t be found with a telescope. And He knows when life on Earth begins and He thinks highly of it (Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 18:6). Have we grown so busy searching for life “out there” that we cannot see the life in front of us anymore? EA
