Does this shock you, perhaps not but it did me when I first heard it a few years ago, as a R. E Scripture Teacher for over 15 years and also working in other Ministries with Children and in the workforce, I was dismayed to think anyone would claim that teaching Children about Creation is abuse when it is in Truth all about our Awesome Creator The Godhead or Trinity as They are called today, not to teach Children is abuse and also disobedience to God’s guideline to Train up a child in the way he should go, which is to know and Love Him.
I would like to share with you a real life story of what happened in one of my R.E lessons in Queensland Australia, notably here Parents can choose for their children not to attend R.E lessons but most allow them, perhaps giving them a chance to make up their own minds even though they don’t believe in a Christian God themselves.
First let me assure you there is no evidence to support the theory of Evolution even their dating system had not been proven, the only evidence they do have also agrees with the Biblical account of Creation. Our Christian Scientists do have proven and documented evidence for Creation ( see links below )
One day about 4 years ago when I was Teaching Scripture R.E, Kimmy a young girl of 8 who always played up in class, said that her Mum and Dad told her that what I talk about is just a lot of rubbish and that there is no God… for once I was stuck for words, I couldn’t go against her Parents but I couldn’t let the rest of the Children have that seed of doubt, so I prayed real hard for God’s leading , which came … I asked the Children to go home and fill a cup full of dirt and then to create a Pet, it could be a dog or cat horse or bird and they were to take care of it and feed it and take it for walks etc then bring it to class the next week and I would give a reward for the best Pet… some looked at me like I had lost it but the next week a few had drawn pictures or used play dough.
One girl said it was not possible to make a Pet because her Dad told her only God can create life and I agreed with her, others said similar things, then Kimmy who had started it all, brought tears to me eyes when she said … Dad and Mum are important but God is the most important, you could have heard a pin drop and then they all started talking together, Kimmy became my best pupil and was always wanting to know more about God.
Interestingly the next week a boy in my class confidently told me I was wrong again, because man can create life by Cloning, I assured him they still had to start with a live cell or embryo etc and the animal was mostly unable to reproduce and their offspring and them often died young… Yes we can indeed see in God’s creation how real God is.
What ever we believe at this time we need to remember there is only one Truth and it is greater then a lie and will defeat them all …God will have the final Victory.
We also remember to recognize a lie you need to know the Truth… ask for God’s Wisdom earnestly and believe you have received it.
Tomorrow I will show you why Evolution does not gel with the 6 days of Creation as recorded in God’s inspired Scriptures, in other words Creation and Evolution together is not a reality, you can not believe in both, as a Christian, Creation is the only way.
The Scriptures tell us the seeds of Truth that are planted in the hearts of all those who have or will come to repentance, bear good fruit even if at this time they reject the True God because of their confusion and doubt. God does not want anyone to perish He Loves all His Children passionately.
