“From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth … God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.” Acts 17:26-27
Happy Saturday friends! What have you been up to lately? Recently, I’ve been on a mission to expose the LIE of evolution! I know, I know. This may seem a little obsessive. But I want you to think about something: evolution undermines the Gospel. You heard me right. If you’re not quite on board yet, think about Paul’s encounter with the ancient pagans of Athens. BEFORE he preached the message of salvation in Jesus, he told them the words that began today’s devotional. He said, “From one man, [God] made all nations.” Like ancient Athens, our world is increasingly being infiltrated by people who are hardened to the Gospel message. They look at the Bible like a myth. The ancient Greeks had a different narrative, one that left no room for the Gospel. So Paul had to start from the beginning. When I read this passage, I couldn’t help but wonder: Maybe that’s why we find ourselves in the same position today? Maybe we need to start from the beginning and realize that our ENEMY doesn’t want people to believe God’s Word. So let’s start from the beginning and REJECT EVOLUTIONARY TEACHINGS in our culture. In my latest video series “Evolution Insanity: Darwin’s Monkey Magic” (@pastorajplatt) you can see in more detail WHY evolution is possibly the greatest deception of this age and why Paul was right when he said that God man all people from one original pair. Fight the good fight my friends AND make sure to enjoy your weekend!
Application: Are there any parts of evolutionary teachings you have a hard time accepting?
Why do you think Paul started from the beginning before he shared the Gospel with the Athenians?
After you watch my latest video, decide one small way you can help others see the truth that evolution is NOT true.
