Man a Higher Animal?
Posted by Pastor Szekely on May 12, 2007
Frequently we hear and are told that man is an advanced animal, implying that he’s “just a little” higher on the evolutionary tree than the other animals…
Now I’ll conceide that many act like animals…in their dealings, in character, and in how they raise their children…but I will not and cannot believe that man is “just a little higher than the animals” on the [wicked and corrupted] tree of evolution!
We find in Genesis chapter one that all the fish, birds, creeping things, cattle, beasts of the field, and the beasts of all the earth were created “after their kinds”. But when God created man – His Magnum Opus – He created him “after His own image”!
Also the Lord Jesus Christ said, “Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows…Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?” (Luke 12:6-7,24) God is not a respecter of persons, but He sure is a respecter of His creation!
If you want to believe that your ancestors swung from trees or crawled out of some primeval sludge, that’s up to you…but what if you would just take that faith that you have in the religion of evolution and place it in the Lord Jesus Christ and in what He has said? Some will not because of pride…”Man IS the higher animal” – no proof…just a statement of faith.
Is MAN the center of the universe? Is MAN the highest of all? If he is [and he isn’t], it’s not getting any better on earth…no matter how much technology that’s developed. Think about it: Man – in his character and morality– has gotten worse, not better. Man is more animalistic than ever. Are you willing to go all the way to the grave denying the Creator and Saviour just because of your pride?
Dear friend, that God-given conscience of yours must tell you that you are wrong before God. Please repent…turn from your wicked ways and turn to and trust the Creator and Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, to be the Satisfaction and Payment for your sin-debt before God. He loves you…He loves you so much that He wants to save you from your condition of sin and change you into a “new creature in Christ”. Evolution is false – The Bible is true…don’t wait to find that out after the grave.
