WORLDVIEWS, BELIEFS AND OUTLOOKS ON LIFE

 A thorough comparison of the fundamental belief systems of evolutionists and creationist reveals the two philosophical positions are diametrically opposite one another in every respect.  Compare their foundational beliefs:

It is completely amazing how very opposite these two worldviews are from one another.  They are so opposed to each other in every aspect of origins, current world philosophy and perspective of future expectations it cannot be simply coincidental.  Can it?

Why is this,  that the exclusion of God from human thought results in aimless, thoughtless, futile living?  Science, history, politics, society, and economics built on secularism result in devaluing human life, re-writing history to cover our faults, the development of leadership that dangle our rights before us but allow all our flaws excuses, and economics based upon survival of the richest.

WORLDS WITHOUT END!

 

When these things have a Divine foundation, science helps humanity with medicine, cures, and compassion. It gives hope to human living.  Our history is filled with both awful deeds AND magnificent achievements and we admit both in order to develop into better people.  Politics become a means to protect, provide and to lift society in a collaborative and compromising way.  The common good becomes the aim of political community.

 

Religion vs Truth

Religion vs Truth

Secular humanism leaves us empty, vile, and vulgar animals seeking only transient pleasures as we wait out our days under the sun.  We can’t agree. We will not compromise.  We seek only our own good. But godliness fills us with hope, compassion, purpose and the pursuit of the good for other people.  We learn to live for the common good, making self-sacrifice the aim of daily existence.  Filling our hours waiting the departure for a world of eternal joy.

 

End of the Universe: Do we have purpose.

End of the Universe: Do we have purpose.

One of these positions is true and one of them is false.  We cannot walk the fence.  We cannot linger between the two positions.  We cannot put off the decision.

Educate yourself.

It is not about truth and science, providing we believe what we see.  It is not about religion and truth for they do not live in harmony and never will.  It is about understanding the expectations of the Creator and allowing the truth of science to reveal what we already know.  We are His creation.  We are special.  We have a future and it is ours for the choosing.

There are only two possibilities.  Either we are designed for a purpose or we are a chemical accident.  In the one instance morality is real.  It does not change and it has consequences to living.  In the other instance morality is an abstract concept; an artificial device that may have  only temporary meaning. Of the two possibilities, the foundations for each must have some credibility to reality.  No one can prove that God exists.  He no longer speaks to the world through prophets and his miracles have ceased.  They had their purpose in validating his will.  No one can prove we are the product of blind chance.  Such a belief actually betrays reality.   Chemistry just doesn’t happen to give rise to life.

Decisions need to be made and one way or the other faith will be the major deciding factor.  While some decide for personal reasons, the rational mind sees the facts and must appeal to reason in order to support he choice.  That choice will always have its ultimately be derived from faith in those facts.  Is faith in the molecules to man idea reasonable?  Is faith in a designer more reasonable?  The roadblocks to clear thinking will be the failure of traditional religion which over the centuries has repeatedly failed humanity and the bias towards naturalism which promises freedom from religion or excuse responsibility to a higher lordship.   Somewhere in the study of what can be known and a better understanding of has is revealed in such documents as the Bible there lies a truth that, for many like myself, competes well with any other understanding.  It explains the material world through our hard sciences and reveals the purpose and the design of the metaphysical world.   It is salvation from vain philosophies and delusions that develop from ignorant humanity.  It is salvation of the mind and soul from an empty existence and assures us of our completeness and fulfills our hopes for eternity.
