Wrong Thinking

For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).

The Bible teaches that by studying the creation, we can discern something of the character of the supernatural Creator. We can see the exquisite design of living systems, the irreducible complexity of the “simplest” single-celled organism, and even the stunning precision of the cell’s components—nothing within the reach of natural selection. To assign His exquisite work to undirected natural causes is “without excuse.” The rest of the chapter contains a list of “reprobate” evils which befalls an individual or society which makes such a logical disconnect with reality.

First on the list is homosexual behavior (vv.24–28), followed by “all unrighteousness,” including a preoccupation with sexual matters, wickedness and greed, a desire to injure, even murder others, and a host of traits which sound much like the daily newspaper (vv.29–32). From immorality in high places, to coporate embezzlement, to abortion clinics, to suicide bombers, we can attest to the outplay of wrong thinking. Make no mistake; our world is dominated by wrong thinking, and according to Paul, denial of creation leads the way. Western education has for decades based itself on naturalism, and even though such an origins view runs counter to intuition, people have heard it so often they are starting to believe it. Certainly most intellectuals and politicians have adopted it and thus base their teaching and policies on a wrong foundation. Predictably, society suffers.
