“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Colossians 2:8
What is worst than believing a lie is assuming the truth. Not the truth from God’s Word (Holy Bible) but so called truth from man’s doctrine. There is people who believe that evolution is true. They say that everything evolved from the Big Bang billions of years ago. The assumption of the Theory of Evolution is what it is a theory and theories of any kind must be proven to be true.
An assumption is a proposition that is taken for granted, in other words, that is treated for the sake of a given discussion as if it were known to be true (Wikipedia, the free encylopedia).
Getting back to the Big Bang Evolution Theory. Many, but not all scientists believe in the Big Bang Theory which supposedly took place about 15 billion years ago. These evolution scientists say in the beginning a tiny fantastically hot seed no bigger than an atom exploded in a big bang and from its fallout not only mass and energy was made but also space and time. The universe swelled and cooled. As eons passed this matter became stars, planets, comets etc. At some point in time these heavenly bodies began rotating in space in an incredibly accurate and predictable manner. All by random chance. What philosophy ? Its like saying if you had all the parts of an automobile and throw them into a tornado it would come out a whole car. What vain deceit ? The Big Bang Theory is man’s philosophy and vain deceit which came from the traditions of men, from the rudiments of the world and not from our Lord Jesus Christ.
The lost people of this world cannot accept what I about to say from the Word of God because their minds are blinded to this fact by Satan (II Corinthians 4:3-4). The first verse in our Bible is : “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” ( Genesis 1:1) The two words that they will not believe is God created. They also don’t believe God created in six days. “For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested on the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and hallowed it.” (Exodus 20:11)
Jesus Himself said when He walked the earth as God manifest in flesh (John 1:14),(I Timothy 3:16) if you don’t believe what Moses wrote in Genesis and Exodus how are you going to believe what I tell you. John 5:46-47 says, For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings how shall ye believe my words ?
In Hebrews 11:3 we read, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” So you have to decide what to have faith in; the word of man, who wasn’t there in the beginning; or God , Who was. Its up to you which is more believable. In Romans chapter 3 verses 3 and 4 Paul by inspiration of God sums it up with two questions and an answer. “For what if some did not believe ? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect ? God forbid: yea, let God be true but every man a liar; as it is written, That you mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
In II Peter 3:16-17, God gives us a warning about wresting the Scriptures to our own destructioin and being led away with the error of the wicked. To believe the Lord Jesus Christ used evolutionary processes is an error of the wicked. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Creator. He is a Creationist, not an evolutionist. There is no such thing as a Christian Evolutionist.
The rudiments of the world are used by the scoffers (II Peter 3:3-6), mockers (Jude 18-19), and atheists (Psalm 14:1) in which the evolutionists use to promote their Big Bang Theory,
The conclusion to assuming the truth from man’s doctrine is to beware because lost men will try to spoil you through, philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world. But we that are born-again, Bible-believers in the Lord Jesus Christ have a perfect book called the Holy Bible (Word of God). It is the Word of Truth (John 17:17).and we are set apart from the world through the truth of God’s Word. We that are saved need to “Study to shew thyself approved unto god, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth, But shun profane and vain babblings; for they will increase unto more ungodliness.” (II Timothy 2:15-16). So we can “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” (Jude 3) and be able “to exhort and to convince the gainsayers” (Titus 1:9) of their error.
