Anyone who lives in the world today knows of the active debate going between men about how everything that is here came to be. Intelligent design, evolution, intelligent design with the help of evolution, and there are more less popular theories out there. It’s one thing to know what you believe and why, it’s another to debate those beliefs with others, but it is an entirely different story to try to prove your theory right when you might be putting that effort into saving a soul.
The main point I am trying to make is not one the everyone likes to hear. For a Christian maturing in their faith it is important for them to know what they believe on the matter and why. But if you are having a conversation with someone who is not saved by Christ and you begin to try and prove why your creation belief is better than theirs, we are really saying, “what is more important than your soul is the fact that I’m right.” The issue of how the world came to be is an argument that we should make after we save the soul of those wanting to debate us on it.
It’s not bad to talk about this topic at all, my main point is to not turn someone off to the saving power of Christ because a debate about how we are here, instead of why we are here.
