The Tower of London hosted the light show “About US” on its walls from November 16-19 and we went down to witness it. The spectacular artwork tells the story of 13.8 billion years of human history from the Big Bang to the present day. After its showing in London, it is going round the county, to Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The show then takes us through ‘13.8 billion years of history’, showing years of evolution with different creatures projected on the walls, purporting to show the progress of molecules to man evolution.
I was preaching to the people as we gave them out, saying things like,
Or variations on the theme.
Most people scoffed and walked by, some listened, including a man who came up to me and said, ‘You’re right, this show is rubbish, there was no Big Bang.’ I asked if he was a Christian and he said no, but from his studies he had come to the conclusion that evolution is not a possible explanation of the origin of the universe, of life and human beings. He took a leaflet and said he would read it. A number of Muslims were there, and some took interest as they too should (in theory) believe God made the world, not the Big Bang.
It is tragic to see the level of indoctrination that is going on and the young people who are being exposed to this lying propaganda that tells them that this is their origin.
Look at the errors in the presentation above:
‘In the beginning there was nothing.’ Please tell me how nothing exploded and created this vast and ordered universe. ‘There wasn’t even nothing’ – a bit of New Age confusion now entering in.
‘Shortly after the beginning it is generally agreed that there was light.’ Agreed by who? Where did the light come from? How could something as vital and complex as light appear out of and explosion of nothing and random chance?No answers given.
‘This is the story or our origins’. A story yes, a fiction made up in the mind of fallen men and women under the influence of the enemy of our souls, to confuse and degrade humans whom God made and created in His image.
‘We are all related.’ In fact, we are all related to one race of humans descended from one original man and one original woman as evolutionists now acknowledge (even calling the woman Mitochondrial Eve). But we are not related to the stars and the inanimate objects in the universe. We are specially created. We are much more than ‘temporary constellations of atoms and molecules born in the big bang, scattered across the universe and gathered together for a brief but magical moment.’ All living things are made of millions of cells with a particular DNA which contains a vast amount of information in each one. There is no possibility that this could have come out of inanimate objects. The origin of life itself is one of the biggest unanswered questions in Darwin’s theory of The Origin of Species.
All life, and human life in particular, has to be made and designed by a Creator of infinite wisdom and power. We are in the universe, but we are not the universe. That is pantheistic New Age dogma (all is one, god in everything) which makes no sense of who we are and of the difference between created objects and living things made by God. We are separate from inanimate things. We are not a soggy mass of New Age soup, gathered together for a moment only to disappear into nothingness. We are created in the image of God with infinite potential if we will only ally our feeble lives with His eternal life.
In the Genesis account it keeps saying God separated – light from darkness, sea from dry land, and created different kinds of plants and creatures, all able to reproduce after their own kind.
We are different from the animals having a spiritual connection to the God who made us and has redeemed us from our sins through the Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us and rose from the dead to connect us to the eternal, not the temporary, and the moment we die we will meet Him, either as our Saviour or our Judge.
And though we are heading for an apocalyptic conclusion to our human story, but it will not end in a hopeless vision of a destroyed earth and the end of life, but in the triumphant return of the Lord Jesus Christ to set up the kingdom of God and reign for ever in the new heavens and new earth.
Pray for the people, especially the young people, who are being subjected to this propaganda. If you hear this show is coming to your neighbourhood, go along to it and take some of these leaflets and tell people about God’s version of our Creation story.
