“I can prove a painting has a painter. Can you prove ‘creation’ has a “creator”? – Ian R.
Why would anyone try and prove that a painting had a painter? It is axiomatic. Even a child knows that a painting couldn’t paint itself. It is for that reason we don’t need to try and prove that creation had a Creator. Every human being knows intuitively that the Creator is evident because of creation.
“Hitler banned Darwinian evolution! Hitler banned ‘The Origin of Species’! Please learn actual history! It’s important.” – Sam Ewen
In his book “Mein Kampf,” Adolf Hitler said, “If Nature does not wish that weaker individuals should mate with the stronger, she wishes even less that a superior race should intermingle with an inferior one.”
Here is his list of the fittest to survive: Nordic – close to pure Aryan; Germanic –predominantly Aryan; Mediterranean – slightly Aryan; Slavic – close to half-Aryan, half-ape; Oriental – slight ape preponderance; Black African – predominantly ape; Jewish (fiendish skull) – close to pure ape.
It doesn’t appear that in his own thinking he “abandoned” Darwinian evolution.
“I have a very good reason for focusing on sinning if someone would finally answer my question as to why the best of us sin daily in spite of the pain it causes God. … Okay, I think enough has been presented for me to explain why I ask. If we can concede that sin is part of us no matter how hard we try, then why do you believe you deserve to go to hell simply because you were created … if it were not through Jesus intervening? Why would it be fair to be damned for eternity just because you were created to be who you are? Why need a redeemer for what you cannot completely control? This is why Christianity makes no sense to me.” – Danny O.
Sin comes naturally to every one of us. No one teaches a child to lie or to be selfish. As we grow, we steal, lust, harbor hatred or jealousy, etc.
However, these sins don’t cause “pain” to God. They rather stir up his just wrath, in the same way a vicious criminal stirs up the wrath of a good judge.
To believe that you should be able to blame God for your sins is like the devious criminal saying that he was created who he was, therefore the judge should dismiss his case.
When anyone becomes a Christian, all his or her crimes against God are forgiven in an instant. His past, present and future sins are legally dealt with by the grace of God. So the Christian has a choice. He can either live a life of fighting his sinful desires, or he can yield to them and live the life of a hypocrite. The Bible calls the battle of the sinful nature and the new nature given to the belier the battle between “the flesh and the spirit,” saying that if you live after the flesh it leads to death, but if you follow the spirit – the new nature – you shall live.
“I’ve played the violin. Does that make me a violinist? Yes I’ve done wrong. That doesn’t make me evil any more than the fact that I’ve done good makes me a saint. Do you not understand basic logic? Do you not understand the meaning of words? And don’t quote your nonsense at me. I understand your book better than you do.” – John H.
Clearly playing a violin doesn’t make any of us an expert violinist. Let’s stay with you logic, but add to the equation. We will put you into a court of law, because when we speak of sin we are speaking morality, not a skill such as playing a musical instrument. People usually go to prison for breaking a moral code, not because they couldn’t play a musical instrument. They steal, perjure themselves by lying or raping or murdering, etc. In a court of law, murdering just one person would make you a murderer. Same with rape. In a court of law, not amount of good works will wash away crimes. The fact that a rapist or murder gives to the Red Cross is irrelevant. In a serious case the judge will judge him for his crimes. It will be the same on Judgment Day.
