Q: Evolutionists say that when they look at nature, they see evolution. When Christians look at nature, what should they see?

A: It’s rare nowadays when you watch a nature show on television when you don’t get at least one reference (sometimes many) to evolution. You often see a propaganda piece that declares that there’s a world of death and struggle that’s been evolving for millions of years.

Evolutionist Quote of the Week

“These ‘creation-science’ textbooks, if allowed in our schools, can only serve to increase that mental anguish by teaching that the Genesis gibberish is a legitimate scientific theory.”

– G. Richard Bozarth, The Meaning of Evolution, American Atheist, p. 19, September 20, 1979.

However, in the book of Job, we’re told to let the beasts, the fish, the fowl of the air and the earth teach us. They declare to us that God made everything, and that the soul of every living thing and the breath of all mankind is in His hands.

But like evolutionists, we’d come to wrong conclusions about God if we just looked at nature without using God’s Word as a lens to understand what we see. That’s because nature is full of death, bloodshed, disease and suffering.

It’s only when we put on our biblical glasses using the lens of Scripture that we can see the creation and understand why there is death and bloodshed and disease and suffering and yet beauty at the same time. It’s only the Bible that tells about a perfect creation marred by sin and death as a consequence that enables us to understand this. To learn more about the direct conflict between evolution and the Bible, read Two worldviews in conflict.
