Evolution tells us that life “evolved” from a single cell organism; to fish; to amphibians; to reptiles; to mammals; to apes; to us. What this is claiming is that life has evolved from something supposedly simple (a single cell is actually very complex), to organisms that are increasingly complex. So, based on this description, evolution involves an increase in information and complexity – arising from from mutations and natural selection – resulting in a totally different type of organism. However, what we see is that evolution is simply defined as “change” and the typical evidence is speciation – an organism changing, but in a limited way and still remaining as the same kind of organism it always has been.

In today's program we look at the history of Darwinian evolution. By the early 20th century Darwin's mechanism for evolution had been shown to be impossible and with the discovery of DNA was replaced by Neo-Darwinism. Beginning in the 1960's, with the development of better tools allowing increased capabilities of microbiology the revealed the depth of the complexity of life, it became evident that Neo-Darwinism was not able to provide a viable mechanism for evolution.

Today secular scientists know that life is so complex that it is impossible for sufficient mutations to have come about so as to result in the information we see in DNA and the complexity of life... even the simpliest forms of life. It is simply impossible.

THE GOOD NEWS

The Good News


Before you get the good news, you need to know the bad news. It's about you. God says:

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23

Sin means disobeying God, aka breaking God's law. God is perfect and perfection is required to enter heaven. It's a standard none of us can achieve. We all fall short. For example, compare yourself with just one of the Ten Commandments. Have you ever told a lie?

All liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. - Revelation 21:8. Or what about:

Have you ever taken something that does not belong to you, no matter how small? Have you ever looked at another person with lust? In Matthew 5 Jesus said:

Everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.' Have you done that?

You have broken God's laws. You have sinned. There must be justice, and that means eternity in hell, the lake of fire, the second death. Unless...

Unless there was someone willing to pay that penalty on your behalf. Someone who will take on themselves the consequences you deserve. And there is. There is one person who can and will do that. That person is Jesus Christ. If you trust this is true (believe), and repent (turn away from disobeying God), Jesus' death is applied to your account and you are freed from the penalty of sin to be with God forever.
