Evolution is a doctrine of death. It is a universe where only the fittest survive. Over millions and billions of years, countless billions and trillions of creatures were born and died, unable to adapt to changing circumstances, each one waiting to see if he or she might have the appropriate mutation to evolve to the next level. Life is a waste.
It’s no wonder human life is no more valued than that of a dog or an old growth tree. It’s no wonder people act like animals and murder one another. It’s no wonder suffering is seen as a waste. It’s no wonder life has no lasting purpose or reason beyond being momentarily “happy” and people advocate for suicide.
Christianity gives life purpose. Each creature and creation exists for a divine reason with a purpose to fulfill. Nothing is wasted by the Creator – not even our sufferings.
The Bible reveals that God even keeps track of every tear that rolls from the human eye (Psalm 56:8). He is aware of every sparrow which falls dead from the tree (Matthew 10:29). He numbers every hair on our heads (Luke 12:7) and names each star in the universe (Psalm 147:4). His is a universe of life, designed and created with a purpose for everything and for everything which happens.
A philosophy of hopelessness is devised and desired by the world; the God of the Bible offers life and purpose in all things.
Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” … He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him (John 10:10; 1:10-11).
