Life is a Gift

by Anonymous

Life is a precious gift given to us all by Yahweh. Many in today’s institutions of higher learning are being swayed by the constant bombardment being taught about the theory of evolution. In evolutionary thought, life is purely an accident. It is cold and without meaning. This thinking can be very dangerous. There are disturbing examples in human history of certain groups of people attempting to eradicate other groups of people that they consider to be “less-evolved.” If people believe that they are simply higher evolved animals, then they may indeed start acting like animals. Many in these same colleges and universities also teach and are taught that abortion is okay, and the debate still rages on about when exactly “real” life begins.

In Scripture, on the other hand, we read in Psalm 51:5, “For I was born a sinner—yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.” (italics ours) This shows that life begins at conception, not birth. No debate there. Scripture tells it like it is. Read also Psalm 139:13-16, “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so complex! Your workmanship is marvelous and how well I know it! You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” This doesn’t sound like the blind chance of evolution, does it? Instead, it sounds like Yahweh is very aware and involved when it comes to creating new human beings.

Accepting that Yahweh created all things, including us humans, can change one’s entire perspective on life and the world in general. Life will no longer feel meaningless and worthless with Yahweh in the picture. With Yahweh, indeed our lives can have great meaning. Even in rigorous scientific studies, it is shown that people who are spiritual are much happier than those who believe there is no hope beyond the grave. So the choice is easy to make. Choose life.
