Is a Gorilla

Grandpa Jones?

No and a thousand times no. I am not claiming any animal as my relative. The word of God makes it very clear that animals were created separate from human beings and are different from human beings.
1 Corinthians 15:39, All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

No, God did not use evolution to create us. According to evolutionists, it took millions of years of life and death struggle for a single-cell organism to develop into a man and all the life forms we see today. In the Genesis account, God makes it very clear that there was no death before Adam and Eve sinned--so no evolution could have taken place. The animals ate plants and so did Adam and Eve. Death did not reign until Adam and Eve disobeyed and, of course, by then they were already human.

Common sense should tell us that there is no way a single cell organism is just going to happen and then just develop a reproductive system with sperm and eggs and just start populating the whole earth while the right combination of gases form to support all the life forms we have today (not to mention food sources). I can remember as a child of no more than ten years of age when I saw a Time-Life book in our home that showed a picture of what I believe was a mountain gorilla in the midst of lush greenery. It said something like "our closet relative..." I thought on this wise--"Oh no! It can't be! It just can't!" If somebody on the Lord's side had been there to tell me the truth, there is no doubt in my mind that I would have believed it, hands down, end of story. But nobody was there and by the time they had finished brainwashing me in the school system, I believed in evolution. I believed it so much that when I finally became a Christian as an adult, I said that maybe God used evolution to create everything, an extremely ignorant statement.

Take a look around--what we have on earth is a wonderfully functioning system in which disparate units work together--food chains, ecological/biological/geological systems, evaporation cycle, etc. The Bible makes it clear that it was God Almighty that made it. I talked with an astronomer one night. He told me his testimony. He had been an atheist. He had a PhD in astronomy. He said that when it was time to believe in God, it had to be the God of the Bible because the others could not make a universe bigger than themselves. The God of the Bible is God. He is the grand God, infinite in understanding and almighty in power. Looking around on the creation, uninterrrupted by brainwashing, man knows that God created the heaven and the earth, even if the man's knowledge is imperfect.

Psalms 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Psalms 19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

Psalms 19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Psalms 19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

Psalms 19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

Psalms 19:6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

Psalms 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

Psalms 19:8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

Psalms 19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

Psalms 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Psalms 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Psalms 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

Psalms 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

Psalms 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

The following is an overview of creation as found in the book of Genesis. Notice how orderly everything was created.

One (1)Light
Two (2) Firmament/Sky
Three (3) Dry land appeared
Seas gathered
Four (4) Sun, Moon, Stars
Five (5) Animals that live in water
Six (6) Cattle, creeping thing, beasts of the earth
Seven (7) God rested/ceased from His work which He had made.

It is quite clear that God finished creation in six days. After each day's creation, the account is punctuated with, "And the evening and the morning were the ___th day." Therefore we are not talking 2,000 year days.

I heard a scoffer remark that God couldn't have created light (1st day) before the Sun (4th day). Yes, He could, He can do anything. In addition, the sun is not the only source of light--look at those little critters called lightning bugs. Look at that lamp in your office. Light is not contingent on the sun. God is full of Light. In fact, there will be no sun or moon in heaven for God will be the Light thereof.

The theory of evolution is not new, it's just got a new name to it. People have been worshipping trees and animals for thousands of years, claiming that such are their gods. Is that not what the evolutionist says? He says, "God didn't create me, I came from an animal." Do they not say that a gorilla is my Grandpa? That there is a bird in my family tree? How about a rat? God's answer is in Romans 1:22-23:

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to...birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

By the way, the chicken came before the egg.
