     Over the Memorial Day weekend I had the opportunity to visit the “Chapel of Saints Valley” at Memorial Park Cemetery in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  The Chapel is noted for its beautiful stained glass window featuring the prophets Ezekiel, Daniel, Jeremiah, and Isaiah.  At their feet are written these words:  “IF YE BELIEVE NOT IN MOSES AND THE PROPHETS, YE CAN NOT BELIEVE IN ME.”




     The books of Moses begin with the six day creation found in Genesis.  Accounts of Adam and Eve, man’s fall into sin, Noah and the world-wide Flood are all presented as history.  In the New Testament, Jesus endorses the Genesis record as truth.  In fact, Scripture clearly states that it is because of Adam and his sin that Jesus came to this earth as savior.  If there was no Adam, there is no need for Jesus.


     Today, many professing Christians attempt to embrace Jesus as savior while rejecting Him as creator.  They put their faith in evolution to explain man’s origin and reject the history presented in Genesis.  This position is extremely foolish because Christianity is absolute nonsense without its history.  Again, if there was no Adam, there is no need for Jesus.


     I remember being told by a deacon at a very large conservative church in Tulsa that he believed the first twelve chapters of Genesis should be removed from the Bible because evolution has proven them to be fairy tales.  I said to the man, “So, you don’t like Genesis?  How do you feel about Exodus?”  With the finger of God on tablets of stone, the Genesis account of creation is confirmed:  “For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day.”  Exodus 20:11.


     The older I get, the more I am convinced that the creation vs. evolution debate has very little to do with science, but rather, it has everything to do with your choice to believe the vacillating theories of men or the unchangeable Word of God.  You either believe the words of God or “YE BELIEVE NOT.”


     Jesus said:  “If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rise from the dead.”  Luke 16:31  “For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed Me; for he wrote of Me.  But IF YE BELIEVE NOT his writings, how shall ye believe My words?”  John 5:46,47
