False Prophets And Dreamers

"Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul" (Deuteronomy 13:3).

The first two verses of this chapter are significant. A prophet or dreamer gives a sign that actually comes to pass and then advises the people to follow other gods! This passage is much needed today in this "scientific" age.

Speculations and theories are published from time to time, and some seem on the surface to challenge Biblical truth. Our text is saying that the Lord will allow such to test us to see if we love Him with all our heart and soul.

Long ago, Ernst Haeckel promoted the so-called basic evolutionary law that "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny." This "proof" for evolution has tested the faith of many for decades. It seemed to have the possibility of truth. Haeckel's drawings, however, were fraudulent. Moreover, embryos do not recapitulate an evolutionary history during development. Embryonic human blood, for example, is always human and never anything but human.

More recently, human skulls have been found. Heavy brow ridges, however, do not prove evolution. The Bible speaks of humans living hundreds of years. Perhaps if modern humans were to live three or four hundred years, they too would have heavier brow ridges. There is evidence that facial morphology changes with time.

Is the Lord testing us to see if we will align with Darwin's god (naturalism) or the real God and His Word? Hitler believed in evolution and tried to prove that some people were superior to others. Stalin exchanged Biblical truth for Darwin's lie early in his life; millions suffered as a consequence. Jesus, the Creator, went to the cross to save sinners. Let us trust Him alone! PGH
