The Bible Has Told The Truth Regarding The Nature Of Man

COPYRIGHT WARNING

As we consider the theory of evolution, we must ask the question: has man adapted to his environment, and evolved in regards to his treatment of other human beings?

If we examine the entire history of the human species, we discover that people today are no kinder and gentler towards other human beings than they were at any other time in human history. In fact, the cruelty and evil of human activity has grown markedly worse.

If man in in fact, evolving, should there not be some indication of this evolutionary process in his social behavior. What we observe is a species who is the most cruel, and vicious, amongst all the creatures of earth.

When the Bible describes the nature of man, it begins with perfection and ends with tragedy. God created us perfect; sin caused our imperfection. Adam was righteous in every way until he disobeyed God’s one law: “don’t eat of the fruit in the middle of the garden.” Was the fruit somehow evil or bad for man, no. It was not the fruit that was at issue; it was Adam’s unwillingness to obey God. Without a test for Adam’s love and trust in God, he would never know whether or not his obedience was based upon love or compulsion. The greatest gift in the universe is love from a true heart. When we truly love a person we genuinely want to please them in every way. If God did not set this one rule before Adam, the sincerity of his love could never be proven.

Was this test so that God could discover what kind of man Adam was? No. God knows all things and there is nothing that He must learn. The test was for Adam, and all of the other creatures of the universe. It appears that God designed this plan, from the beginning, with the intention of revealing His true nature to all creation. By creating man in His likeness; with many of the same attributes of God, and bestowing the privilege of choice; God could display his character, love, and wisdom. God knew that Adam would make the wrong choice. God knew that Adam’s sin would spread to all those who would come after him. God knew that sin would require the death of His Son, in order to placate the justice of God’s law. God understood that by allowing Jesus to die for the sins of the world, certain persons would be drawn to Him and receive His offer of forgiveness and restoration to God. There would be a majority of others who would scoff, reject, mock, and hate God—even though He had exhibited the most stunning example of love the universe would ever see.

Jesus died for the sins of the whole world. He died for those who would never receive Him. He suffered tremendously, for people who would never even thank Him or accept His offer of love.

All this, for the single purpose of displaying the true nature of man in contrast to the true nature of God.

Evolution is a lie, for the reason that man is unique amongst all the creatures of earth. He possesses qualities that are unlike any animal. His mind, emotions, creative abilities, and love, are unparalleled in the animal kingdom.

If man evolved into this advanced physical state, while failing to advance himself socially, something is terribly wrong with the evolutionary process. The fact that man is actually worse today than he was 2,000 years ago, is a stunning indictment against evolution.

Let us understand that if evolution is true, then it will affect the social aspects of an intelligent species, as well as the physical attributes. The entire point of evolution is adaptability. In order for man to truly evolve, he should have become more civilized and less violent. In fact, man is extremely violent today. Left to his own way, man would destroy every person alive and burn this planet into oblivion.

The only reason that the human species has survived so far, is due to good men who know God and who have been transformed by the power of God’s love. It is good men, standing up against evil men, that has made this planet fit for habitation. All throughout the history of man, there have been countless evil men who have sought to destroy others. It because a few good men, stood against the tide of evil that people all over the earth have the opportunity to live their lives in peace.

Everything that the Bible states, reading the nature of man, is true. The Bible is the only set of documents that accurately portrays the true existence of the human race. The Bible says that we are lost in sin and held as slaves to its power. All we must do is open a newspaper, turn on the TV, of open our electronic device and view the days news. Every 24 hour cycle of time on our planet, reveals some new and stunning atrocity that has been committed by one person again others. It seems that the level of violence is increasing exponentially, as man also increases technology, financial prosperity, and education. The only aspect of human life that decreases evil is force against such evil. The only thing that evil men understand is overwhelming force. The only method to end the murder of innocent people by evil men, is to kill those who perpetrate these acts.

The world cries out for “Peace.” In all the history of man upon the earth, there has never been a sustained period of time in which peace reigned.

In the last 3,000 years of man’s recorded history, there has only been 286 years without a war. There have been over 15,000 wars resulting in 4 billion deaths.[1]

The following are the 177 major wars which have been fought on the earth during the recorded history of man. These wars are listed in order of the greatest casualties first.

There has never been Peace on the earth, and there never will be until the Prince of Peace comes to rule the world. When the Messiah arrives, He will come for the express purpose of making peace for man.

For the humanist, materialist, and non-theist, this record is a stunning indictment upon the premise that man is evolving into a more civilized and peaceful species. In fact, the opposite is true. As time progresses, men simply develop more creative ways to kill other men. The Biblical view of man as a fallen being, who is incapable of peace, is precisely what the evidence validates. Unless God intervenes in the history of mankind, we would certainly annihilate our species and destroy the earth.

Dr. Sigmund Freud, the father of modern of psychoanalysis., became thoroughly frustrated with the human species at the end of his life. He considered human beings the worst and most violent of all animals on the earth. In his book “Civilizations and its Discontents,” he said:

“…men are not gentle creatures, who want to be loved, who at the most can defend themselves if they are attacked; they are, on the contrary, creatures among whose instinctual endowments is to be reckoned a powerful share of aggressiveness.”

Philosopher Thomas Hobbes said this about the human species:

“solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.

Dr. Hobbes believed that all men were capable of murder, and war in the inevitable outcome of all unsettled disputes.

If you examine various web sites on the internet, you will find that there are endless, and timeless reports of the inhumanity and cruelty of human beings towards other human beings. Every year the news is filled with endless reports of thieves, bombers, murderers, bigots, racists, and bullies. Violence is at an all time high, while those who seek to perpetuate the myth of evolution, like Harvard professor Steven Pinker, tell us that modern people are far less violent than our distant ancestors. Experts who study the evil and violence of people around the world, state that the 20th century is the bloodiest and cruelest moment of man’s history. Between 1900 and 2015, human beings have fought 237 wars and millions have been killed. If man is truly getting better, evolving into a more civilized species, why is he becoming more violent the longer he lives on the earth? Education, technology, and the increasing number of those who deny the existence of God have not contributed to less violence, they have caused a marked increase in evil and violence.

As society has bought into the idea that there is no God, and nothing happens after we die, people have become more callous, increasingly violent, and astoundingly more selfish. 

The primary reason that many brutal serial killers have declared for their horrendous acts of violence was due to their indoctrination into the premise that there is no God. If God does not exist and there is no future judgement; in the mind of these killers; anything  was permissible.

The atheist movement has brought an entirely new generation of hopeless, fearless, and heartless individuals who cast off all restraint. They do not fear God, they have no thought of recompense for their actions, and they care nothing about what other people think, regarding their selfish and evil actions. While a majority of atheists are highly educated, there are great numbers of less educated persons who read the dialogues of leading atheists and develop a sociopathic outlook on society.

Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer, also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, was an American serial killer and sex offender, who committed the rape, murder, and dismemberment of seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991, with many of his later murders also involving necrophilia, cannibalism, and the permanent preservation of body parts—typically all or part of the skeletal structure. [34]

If a person doesn’t think there is a God to be accountable to, then—then what’s the point of trying to modify your behaviour to keep it within acceptable ranges? That’s how I thought anyway. I always believed the theory of evolution as truth, that we all just came from the slime. When we, when we died, you know, that was it, there is nothing…”

—An interview with Stone Phillips, Dateline NBC (29 November 1994)

There have been hundreds of individuals, similar to Jeffrey Dammer, who laid blame to the “non existence of God,” rhetoric that they had been told, that contributed to their casting off in all restraint.

Where there is no revelation (of God), the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law. —Proverbs 29:18

Prior to the Great Flood, during the time of Noah:

Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. —Genesis 6:5

In the Last days of earth, just prior to the return of Jesus:

And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: —Luke 17:26

This dispels the idea that man has gotten better over time. Jesus said that the moral climate of man, just prior to His return to earth the second time, will be exactly as it was just prior to the food of Noah, when God destroyed every living thing on the earth. This is precisely what we observe—all over the earth, today.

Even more distressing, regarding the above wars, is the fact that many of these wars  were cause by those who claim to be Christian, or members of other religions.

The record of the Christian church during its 2,000 year history, is inexcusable. We must understand that Jesus did not command His followers to take up arms and threaten or kill those who refused to convert to Christianity. These unlawful, unjust actions took place as a result of corrupt and evil men from within the Christian church who approved and orchestrated these immoral actions. In the Christian church, to the present day, there are frauds who take the name of Christ, while failing to display the qualities of Christ. These people are not the true followers of Jesus Christ, and they do not represent Him, nor the church for which He died.

We should not blame Christ, or His church for the wrongful actions of evil men who took actions that were not sanctioned by Jesus, nor did He ever instruct anyone to carry out these actions. The Christian church wins people to Christ by love, not force. Jesus was very clear about the manner in which the people who follow Him, should conduct themselves:

But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you… —Matthew 5:44

Bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. —Luke 6:28

 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. —Romans 12:21

 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” —John 13:35

The fact that men pretend to take up the title of “Christian,” while never intending to emulate the true character and behavior of a Christian—using this title for evil purposes, is great evidence to make the case that all men need a Savior. Evil men will even use what is Holy to perpetrate their evil deeds.

If we will examine the person of Jesus Christ, and the words that He spoke, we will see that He did not sanction any of these wars.

On earth, today, before anyone can find true peace, their sins must be dealt with. Our sins have separated us from God. Jesus provided an effective solution, by removing all sins and offering each person the opportunity to have their relationship with God restored. Without Jesus sacrifice, we will remain under the condemnation of God and experience a future judgement for those sins,

But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear. —Isaiah 59:2

I write to you, little children, Because your sins are forgiven you for Jesus name’s sake. —1 John 2:12

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. —John 3:16-18

First, we must find peace with God. This is accomplished by coming to God in faith that Jesus death and resurrection can remove all our sins and restore our relationship with God.

Second, we find peace with other men, by experiencing a new spiritual life—having come into this new relationship with Jesus, and learning the principles He taught. We accomplish this new life as we are directed by the Spirit of God—where love is the primary characteristic of our life.

The reason that wars and violence persists on the earth is that men do not live under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and surrender their will to His will. When we examine the true nature of man, we see that the Bible has told us the truth. We need a Savior, and God has provided One, sufficient to save us all. If we will only receive Him.
