Evolution Is Wrong: Generation Z Proves It

Today’s generation is complaining about every little thing they can. Recently they have complained about Baby It’s Cold Outside as being sexist. The song comes from back in the ’50s. It is a very good song and one I have enjoyed as a child.

I am not going to go into ruining Christmas or why this song is or isn’t offensive. What I am going into is the fact that this generation is so lazy and narrow minded we as humans are devolving. In fact just going back to the 1950’s we can see we have not evolved we devolved. The only thing we have done good on is technology. This points out that evolution is not possible. If man cannot improve over 70 years then how can a single cell organism grow into life on Earth?

You may have guessed it I am a Christian. I have been a born again believer since I was 12 years old. I have always wondered how a person could believe in evolution. It is not like you can leave the dishes in the sink and they are magically clean all of a sudden. I have even found it humiliating that we were to be believed to come from apes. I have always found it easier to believe in an Omnipotent God that spoke us into being rather than an atom, an accident, always existing and by accident creating us.

You see God everyday. The sky, the trees, the stars, you are what God created and has a purpose to be on this planet. I have days that are bad to me and I remember God has a purpose for me.   If you are not a Christian the end of time is coming soon. Have Faith and take Jesus Christ as your Saviour and you will live eternally in Paradise if not you will burn eternally in Hell.

Sinner’s Prayer

Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Your Name.

Amen

Where Do We Go After Death According To The Bible

It is Hard but, Forgive and Forget

I know we all have hard times in life and we want to blame it on someone other than ourselves. There are some people that the only person they can blame is theirself. Although we should not hold a grudge on anyone especially ourselves. We need to forgive. It does take time, space, and acceptance; but once you can forgive you will have peace. I have shared this video on my music page on my blog, but I want people to see it even more. This song has helped me through life, has helped me accept the hard times as a trial of God, and has lead me in the direction of Salvation of Jesus Christ. I will explain this all to you, but if you wish listen to the song, turn of any noise, put away any distractions even your smartphone unless you are reading my blog from it, and listen not with your ears, but with your heart.

Don Henley

The Heart of the Matter

Lead Me To Salvation

When I was not even a teenager I was the one the kids picked one, beat up, and threatened in school. The only way my mother could see to stop it was take me out of public school and place me in a Christian (Baptist) school. I had no idea what religion was like, I was about to learn.

When I was in school I learned the Bible everyday and had chapel on Fridays. My fifth grade teacher talked to me about Christ and Heaven. She told me He came here over 2000 years ago to die on the cross and rise again the third day to cleanse us of our sins. She also told me we have to have faith and be saved in Him to go to Heaven. Now I was a little unsure back then because before then I had no idea of Heaven or Hell. I also wondered if I sinned again did I need to get saved again. For example a Christian is crossing the road and then sees headlights of an eighteen wheeler coming at the and says a “bad word” do they go to Heaven or Hell. I did learn that once you are saved you are saved unless you reject God and tell Him you no longer want your Salvation. Now you may be wondering how I got to this. This was the time I first heard this song, “The Heart of the Matter”.

I loved the music of the Eagles and when I found a CD of Don Henley’s I had to have it. My mom bought it for me and when I heard the song it took my breath away. It froze me and had my full attention.  When I heard these lyrics is when the tears started to flow and still do, “And the struggles we went through, How I lost me and you lost you, What are these voices outside loves open door, Make us throw of our contentment, and beg for something more.” Here is where my eyes are tearing, “I’m learning to live without you now, but I miss you sometimes, the more I know the less I understand all the things I thought I knew I am learning again,  I’ve been try to get down to the heart of the matter but my will gets weak and my thought seem to scatter,  so I think it’s about forgiveness, forgiveness even if I don’t love you anymore.”

This just reinforced what my teacher was talking to me about when it came to Salvation. The “struggles we went through” for example. We all go through struggles everyday and I was going through a lot at the time. They are trials given to us by God to test us. Also ‘I lost me and you lost you” without Jesus Christ as Savior we are lost. The “voices outside loves open door”‘ is temptation, deception, sin and “something more” is Salvation. We do learn to live with God and we could do that for a long time, but He will keep sending us His Word and never give up. Then when I did “get down to the heart of the matter, my will got weak, and my thought did scatter, so i sought forgiveness, forgiveness” and I was saved in Jesus Christ and baptized at the Door of Fellowship in Williamsport, PA. I was born again. If you want to be saved just say a prayer to God and as for forgiveness of your sins, let Him know you are now dedicated to Him, ask him to show you the way to His path, and ask him to cleanse you. If you want to read the Sinners Prayer read Psalms 51.

Gives Me Peace

This is a very peaceful song. When I have a bad day or tension between family or co-workers I listen to this song. It gives me peace. I don’t know why, but it soothes me like a hurricane becoming blue sky and still water. We all need peace for a few minutes in a day. This is what does it for me. Even when I am at work I stop and listen. I have pulled over before to listen. I believe this song was a gift from God to us. It is sad that love isn’t always simple. Sometimes relationships end and it is no one’s fault. Everything happens for a reason and the reason of this song is for peace in the heart. I hope you like this song as much as I do.
