Fearfully And Wonderfully Made

This past Sunday afternoon I spent some time reminding my people that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Science and modern technology has yet to develop a machine of any kind that is as complex as the human body. When we develop just a basic understanding of some of the processes that are continually at work in the human body we should stand in awe of the God who did it all.

Modern science has done us the favor of accessing information concerning the human body that for the believer causes us to understand that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Psalms 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Sunday afternoon we consider some basic fact concerning the cardiovascular system, focusing on the four chamber heart, the arteries, veins, and capillaries, the red and white blood cells and their respective functions. The platelets and their function. We took a quick look at the digestive system and concluded with a very basic look at the the structure and function of the cell, of which our bodies are composed of about 10,000,000,000,000.

Then I asked how it all happened???

One writer suggested the following:

Another theory holds that the turbulent shores of the ancient coastal waters may have served as a mammoth laboratory, aiding in the countless experiments necessary to bring about the first cell. Waves breaking on the shore create a delicate foam composed of bubbles. Winds sweeping across the ocean have a tendency to drive things to shore, much like driftwood collecting on the beach. It is possible that organic molecules were concentrated on the shorelines in much the same way. Shallow coastal waters also tend to be warmer, further concentrating the molecules through evaporation. While bubbles comprised of mostly water tend to burst quickly, oily bubbles happen to be much more stable, lending more time to the particular bubble to perform these crucial experiments. The Phospholipid is a good example of a common oily compound prevalent in the prebiotic seas. Phospholipids can be constructed in one's mind as a hydrophilic head on one end, and a hydrophobic tail on the other. Phospholipids also possess an important characteristic, that is having the function to link together to form a bilayer membrane. A lipid monolayer bubble can only contain oil, and is therefore not conducive to harbouring water-soluble organic molecules. On the other hand, a lipid bilayer bubble can contain water, and was a likely precursor to the modern cell membrane. If a protein came along that increased the integrity of its parent bubble, then that bubble had an advantage, and was placed at the top of the natural selection waiting list. Primitive reproduction can be envisioned when the bubbles burst, releasing the results of the experiment into the surrounding medium. Once enough of the 'right stuff' was released into the medium, the development of the first prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and multi-cellular organisms could be achieved.

How' that for a fairytale!

Notice the words and phrases, "may have", "have a tendency", "it is possible", "also tend", "lending more time", "was a likely precursor", "If a protein came along", "primitive reproduction can be envisioned", "once enough of the 'right stuff'", "could be achieved".

These are the kinds of phrases you find in all articles dealing with evolution. This gentleman has an imagination that is willing to go to any extreme to remove God from the picture. It is for this very reason that evolutionist continue to add more time to their model. Because thousands of years are not enough time to reasonably believe this kind of thing could happen. Millions of years are not enough, Billions of years??? I would not be surprised to discover in the next few years that they realize it has actually taken trillions of years. I for one am not disappointed with the ever expanding time frame. I hope that it means they are getting closer to the truth and will one day admit that there is not enough time for their theories to work!

The Bible has it right, "we are fearfully and wonderfully MADE." Which means we have a maker. Which means we have accountability. Which logic would demand that there is a day of judgment coming when men will give account to their maker. And the testimony of Scripture is clear that "he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead." Acts 17:31

Consequently he commandeth all men everywhere to repent!
