I'm studying Jeremiah now ... and I was reading Chapter 2 this morning and this verse just amazed me ... God knew our sinful flesh would turn to His wonderful creation around us and create our own "gods" and "religion" :
27 Saying to a stock, You are my father; and to a stone, You have brought me forth: for they have turned their back to me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.
28 But where are your gods that you have made you? let them arise, if they can save you in the time of your trouble: for according to the number of your cities are your gods
Evolution is nothing new that Darwin came up with ... it is the same lie that Satan has been permeated through time ... and convincing man to turn his back on God and create his own false gods to believe in.
The ancient pagan religions were making their gods, often in the image of animal 'beasts', out of wood and stone and worshiping them.
Now, Evolution has create the religion that those "stocks" and "stones" are merely our ancient ancestors millions of years ago and defined a world without our Heavenly Father.
Evolution is as a form of Idolatry: Psalm 135:15-18 (KJV):
"The idoles of the heathen are silver and gold: the worke of mens hands.
They have mouths, but they speake not: eyes have they, but they see not:
They have eares, but they heare not: neither is there any breath in their mouthes.
They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them."
Webster's 1828 Dictionary: Stock - A post:
"Something fixed, solid and senseless. 'When all our fathers worshipped stocks and stones.' A stem, a staff, a stick, a block. This word coincides with stake, stick, stack; that which is set or fixed."
"What a great study - God's word is so amazing!"
