The Fruit of the Denial of God as Creator
Bible Text: Romans 1:18-25 | Speaker: Pastor James Zaebst | Series: A Reasoned Look at Creation | Romans 1:18: – The Atheistic Naturalists have seized control of Academia (The Institutes of Higher Learning). Their motive is the justification for, and the perpetuation of their sinful lifestyle. (Philippians 3:18 and 19).
Romans 1:19 and 20: – Here is the basis for the cosmological argument.
Whatever begins to exist has to have a cause (Genesis 1:1 and John 1:3).
The cause must be both reasonable and relational.
The belief that our world is the product of chance occurrence is unreasonable.
Creation by the power of God is reasonable (Jeremiah 32:17).
The world was created for God’s use (Revelation 4:11). (That is the relation).
Romans 1:21 and 22: – The unsaved will not recognize God as Creator for to do so would necessitate thankfulness.
The failure to see God as our Creator is the foundation for the Naturalistic Atheism being taught today!
The theory of evolution (and its foolishness) – (Genesis 1:21, 24 and 25) is nothing but a determined refusal to acknowledge God as Creator.
The denial of God makes a person his or her own god (Genesis 3:4-6).
The natural outcome is the worship of nature (the Earth).
Romans 1:23-25: – Environmental Extremism – is the natural outcome of a belief in godless naturalistic evolution. Ultimately the worship of nature is also a worship of self (I Corinthians 15:47 and 48).
Man is a spiritual being (Matthew 10:28). As a spiritual being, he hungers for a spiritual relationship (Romans 8:14-16). If this relationship with God is missing it leaves a void or hole in his life. He will fill this hole with the worship of the Earth (his religion).
Only Christ can feed a spiritual hunger (John 4:14 and 15 and John 6:31-35).
