Matthew 19:5-6. "And that a man should leave his father and mother, and be forever united to his wife. The two shall become one—no longer two, but one! And no man may divorce what God has joined together.” If we are to become “one”, we must be equally yoked.
I certainly agree with Matt that Christians are hypocritical. In fact, I think all humans are hypocritical. The bible even says that “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” ALL. That means every Christian and non-Christian. In fact, we all sin everyday. I am a horrible sinner myself. But, my sin is why I am a Christian. My hypocrisy is why I trust Jesus. My shortcomings are why I need Him. If I wasn’t a sinner, I wouldn’t need a savior. So in answer to the question of Christians being hypocrites and divorcing (or anything thought to be a sin or unvirtuous), these things are why we need Christianity. Jesus doesn’t keep me from sin…..he saves me from sin. The bible says “the wages of sin is death”. If I don’t have a savior, I am dead spiritually.
The evolution question. That can be discussed for days. I am certainly no scientist, and by no means an apologetics expert, but I have done a little research on this. Evolution was started by Charles Darwin (others have tweaked and added to it). It is certainly only a theory. As DNA complexity and cell complexity have been studied in recent years, more and more scientists have come out and stated that there has to be a creator. That this complexity could not just happen or evolve. Certainly there is evolution within species, but the more the complexities of DNA and cell structure are studied, the more we are learning about the intricacies and impossibilities of Darwin’s theory. Evolutionist fail to admit that no species has ever been proven to have evolved in any way. Evolution is simply a theory without scientific proof. Many will ask, then why has our society started to accept it and teach it. The answer is that if one will not believe in the supernatural, then he must find his own explanation. The scientists that are currently coming out and stating that they believe in “Intelligent Design” are being ostracized from the scientific community (See the movie “Expelled”). Honestly, I can see why the scientific community is trying to quiet them. Because, if they get the word out that many scientists are believing in intelligent design, then the scientific community will be in shambles. More scientists believe in intelligent design now, than ever. I know a Dr. that once told me, that no one can convince him that there is not a creator. Why did he say that? Through his studies of human anatomy, everything pointed toward intelligent design. He said that he could not get past the human eye. The intricacies and complexities do not fit the evolutionary explanation. Evolution vs. Creation could be discussed for a long time……my little explanation leaves a lot to be desired, and leaves out a lot of strong points and hot topics (from both sides). See www.apologetics.org for some great info. Also, check out the movie Expelled www.expelledthemovie.com
About the question of the 2 year old being killed by her crackhead mother. I agree….this is a very tough pill to swallow. But according to the bible, God gave man free will and we brought sin into the world. That sin (murder included) is why we need a savior. That is why we need Christianity. That is why we need Jesus. The sin itself strengthens my belief and trust in God.
These are just a few short answers (definitely not exhaustive) to some very deep questions. But, I would encourage anyone who didn’t believe, to search and ask questions. I did that and came up with 2 conclusions: 1). There is a creator. 2).The creator sent His Son to die for sinners like me, so that I can spend eternity with Him.
