“Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.” Matthew 7:6 (KJV)
When I was a teenage boy, and first got my driver’s license I was probably like a lot of other boys. I liked to spin my wheels, smoke my tires, stir the dust when I was in the pasture; and such wasteful things as that.
It seems these days many Christians are good at “Spinning their wheels”, “Smoking their tires”, and “Stirring the dust” when it comes to “Debate” or discussing the issues. Some of those issues; such as the Evolution/Creation debate is one I see as a waste of our time.
The atheist; the non-theists argues for evolution; and I for one can see their argument. They do not believe in God, and evolution relieves them of any responsibility to the Higher Power. Many atheist have their minds made up. Prayerfully many Christians have our minds made up concerning Creation; I know I do. There is nothing the evolutionist or atheist can say to change it. I believe the Word of God, and without God or His Word there would be no Science or atheists. If there was no God, there would be no argument.
The point I want to make is from the verse above. As Christians we have a calling to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, contend for the faith; but once we have done that, and seeing an individual set on ignoring the Spirit of God, and His Word; we need to move on. To continue in that “Debate” is fruitless. Deliver the gospel of Jesus Christ, then leave it in God’s hands, pray for the individual and watch God work.
After all; do you think you are more persuasive than God’s Spirit?
