God shall send them a strong delusion
Darwin published his theory, Origin of the Species, in 1859.
Why does it matter, and why are scientists and Christian apologists still discussing this today?
The reason is this. All of secular, modernistic, atheistic, “woke”, “Deep State”, communist and anti-human philosophies were birthed in the idea that man evolved, rather than being created by God. If man evolved, then truly this world is run by “the law of the jungle” in which the most aggressive and rabid individuals and systems win as they kill off everyone else through “the law of the jungle”.
“The law of the jungle” (also called jungle law) is an expression that has come to describe a scenario where “anything goes”. The Oxford English Dictionary defines the Law of the Jungle as “the code of survival in jungle life, now usually with reference to the superiority of brute force or self-interest in the struggle for survival”.
Also from Wikipedia:
The Law for the Wolves
“NOW this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky,
And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk, the law runneth forward and back;
For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.
Wash daily from nose tip to tail tip; drink deeply, but never too deep;
And remember the night is for hunting and forget not the day is for sleep.
The jackal may follow the tiger, but, cub, when thy whiskers are grown,
Remember the wolf is a hunter—go forth and get food of thy own.
Keep peace with the lords of the jungle, the tiger, the panther, the bear;
And trouble not Hathi the Silent, and mock not the boar in his lair.
When pack meets with pack in the jungle, and neither will go from the trail,
Lie down till the leaders have spoken; it may be fair words shall prevail.
When ye fight with a wolf of the pack ye must fight him alone and afar,
Lest others take part in the quarrel and the pack is diminished by war.
—Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936)
If the world evolved by the law of the jungle, then “the lords of the jungle” prevail. But if the Lord God created the heavens and the earth, which He did, then there is a Lord God that man needs to look to and follow.
It is only in a world that removes God that atheistic, dictatorial systems can prevail. These systems come in by appealing to the worst in human nature, the sin nature. Free stuff. Socialism. Communism. “Freedom” to do whatever the flesh wants. That has evolved in this society to call alcoholism “self-medication,” or pedophilia “MAP,” “minor-attracted persons.” It attempts to legitimize sin, for example, legalizing murder in laws regarding abortion. Lately, there has been extreme theft and murder in various cities, and rather than any punishment for the crimes, the criminals are released to do it again. Law is ignored. And at the national level, war is propagated as a means of enriching the military- industrial complex. In a world that does not answer to God, the worst of sin and iniquity operates on a regular basis throughout society causing death and destruction.
John 10:6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
On the other hand, God made provision for the redemption of humanity through Jesus Christ. The Creator showed his concern and love for the fallen creation of man through Jesus Christ.
Genesis 3:14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
The discussion in the video listed above regarding the complexity of the cells shows the error of Darwin’s theory. A complex cell cannot evolve piece by piece. A complex cell came from the ultimate “top down,” the Creator, the Lord God.
It is imperative to understand that man did not evolve. Otherwise, a person can be deceived by atheists who will attempt to convince society that atheists, satanists, and globalists should be in charge “for the greater good” because these atheists consider themselves some type of “superior beings” capable of running the world and/or turning it over to AIs and who are also influenced by demons.
II Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
