According to their kind-Day 6 | Genesis 1:24-25

24 Then God said, “Let the earth produce living creatures according to their kind: livestock and crawling things and animals of the earth according to their kind”; and it was so. 25 God made the animals of the earth according to their kind, and the livestock according to their kind, and everything that crawls on the ground according to its kind; and God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:24-25 (NASB) 

Day 6

Day 6 of creation accounts for the creation of animals (today’s verses) and man (tomorrow’s verses). The earth produced the living creatures that God made.

According to their kind

We’re going to “camp out” on this phrase today. The religion of Evolution is the most widely held anti-creation theory and seems to have wreaked the most havoc in the world. “Very possibly no other author in the nineteenth century influenced human thought all around the world more than Charles Darwin when he published his two books: The Origin of Species and The Descent of Man.” (icr.org)

Evolution religion

Read this quote from Darwin and you’ll understand why special attention needs to be given. “Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows.” (Charles Darwin, On the Origin of Species). Not only did he claim to not believe in God, he created a religion where death is god – which sounds a lot like Satan.

Impact of Evolution

The impact of Evolution on society around the world has been significant. Though initially rejected, by some power (I would suggest, the Devil), it was able to gain acceptance. It came to displace Creation as the explanation for mankind’s coming into existence and, in the minds of men, dethrone God.

In his short article, How Has Darwinism Negatively Impacted Society?, author John G. West lists three general areas Evolution has had a negative impact. 

  1. Man is just another animal. “Darwin’s theory undermined the foundations of that entire Western way of thinking about the place of our species in the universe.” One of the ends: mankind is no different than monkeys and has no moral authority over them.
  2. Nature is the product of an unguided process. “In the Darwinian worldview, human beings are accidents of natural history, not the purposeful creations of a loving creator.” The result: the idea God is ridden over roughshod and mankind worships themselves.
  3. The engine of progress in the history of life is mass death. “Instead of believing that the remarkable features of humans and other living things reflect the intelligent design of a master artist, Darwin portrayed death and destruction as our ultimate creator.” A result, human life has no intrinsic value.

But God’s creation on day 6 was good.

RЯeflection

  • Have you bought into the religion of Evolution? Do you believe that mankind evolved over millions of years…by accident? If so, it greatly affects your understanding of God and who you are. I implore you to turn to the God of creation.
  • Maybe as a Christian, you tacitly accepted Evolution in school and have never dealt with it since. Reconsider this decision – for the sake of your faith and knowledge of God and yourself.
