Grudem And Creation

I’ve been reading the Chapter on creation In Grudem’s Systematic Theology and I think every one that has to take a high school or college science course should read it. Especially section 15.E.2.C.(1) Current Challenges to Evolution.  I love the illustration he gives on page 284.

“If I were to take my digital watch, hand it to someone, and say that I found it near an iron mine in northern Minnesota, and that it was my belief that the watch had come together by itself simply the operation of random movement and environmental forces(plus some energy from a few bolts of lightning, perhaps), I would quickly be written off as mad.”

I’ll never understand why some people find evolution or even that “life may have been sent here by a spaceship from a distant planet”(pg 285) easier to believe than the fact that God created the heavens and earth and everything on it.

the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
