In reference to the debate last night between Evolutionist Bill Nye and Creationist Ken Ham, let me say I am thankful for Mr Ham's defense of the Biblical record of creation. Our Universe is the product of a Divine act of creation. I applaud Mr Ham for arranging this debate and I thank Mr Nye for accepting the invitation rather than brushing Ham and his challenge off.
But let me introduce you to another Biblical fact. The new birth, the event in which God vitally saves a sinner, is every bit an act of creation as the origin of the Universe. Men do no spiritually evolve into a state of spiritual life by their choice, power or decision but are "created" in Christ Jesus.
What does that mean? It means God is sovereign and we are the passive recipients of His grace. We were dead in sin. We are now alive in Christ. This is a miraculous act of Divine creation. As with Genesis 1, "God said" and it was. We didn't choose to become "born again" anymore than the Universe chose to spring into existence. Isn't that amazing? Saved people are spiritual creations!
Please consult Ephesians 2:1, Ephesians 2:10, and 2 Corinthians 5:17 and meditate on these things.
