A wise man once said:
“After 12 years of the school system teaching us that we evolved from animals, it’s no wonder we behave like them”
It may sound like a humorous sentiment, but the devastation caused by underlying lies planted in our thinking can have quite far reaching effects on our life and perception of moral ethics.
There is a stark contrast in how we will behave towards different situations and others that is directly related to what we believe to be true.
We’ve seen and felt the effects of this truth throughout history on a large scale when men like Adolf Hitler formed his belief around the thinking that “only the strong survive,” It painted a very real but a disastrous and fatal picture in his imagination that those to whom he considered beneath himself, were not worthy of life.
Although many might think of them self as far from reaching the heights of his brutality, the more subtle manifestations caused by the same error in logic is seen even in today’s society in how we interact with one another.
To the Christian, we believe in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ as our moral authority who guides us in the way which is right. He does this through His Holy Spirit living in us, speaking to our consciences and leading us in a way that is pleasing to God.
But if at the very premise of our thinking, we believe that we evolved from animals, well then an alternative premise can end up being the director of our lives:
“monkey see, monkey do”
I’m sure I hardly need to further stress how we see the outworking of this in our culture through the design of fad’s, trends, pride, and what is determined by man to be socially acceptable even to the extent of nullifying the Word of God.
Take the time to deeply consider the following comparison of beliefs at the core level and consider the source of moral ethics and its effects on your life.
Living in a world that is constantly pulling us in so many different directions, it is my prayer that we would let go of our pursuits for a season, and sit down to consider the Word of God; the Holy Bible for yourselves. Let it wash over your consciences and may the Holy Spirit lead you in the way of life and peace.
All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work
2 Timothy 3:16
