The Heavens Declare the Glory of God

God's Word was upheld and Christ's Name glorified in the debate between Ken Ham and Bill Nye last night. Syd and I were glad to watch it and even though Creationism and evolution will be a debate until the Creator of the universe brings it all to an end, we are thrilled and thankful to be on God's side!

When I was in 6th and 7th grade I had an evolutionary science teacher, Mr Grumman. I can honestly say that he was my all-time favorite teacher. When he introduced us to "the THEORY of evolution", he did it exactly as that. He was honest enough to tell us that many people do not agree with 'Darwinism' and though he debated with us, my friend April and I were totally free to disagree with his view, and we did so, outwardly but respectfully. Unfortunately today's teachers not only uphold Darwinism, but tell children that it is TRUTH. I wonder whether our young children even know that it was once called "theory".

"O LORD, correct me, but with judgement; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing." Jeremiah 10:24

As I continued in prayer for the hearts of those who heard the debate last night, I was also reminded and thankful again of the fact that God never "pulls any punches" with me. He hits me hard with the truth of His Word and lovingly expects me to do what it says. Aren't you glad that God upholds His creation and written Word?
