Who Made It?

Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.

Jeremiah 10:11

Much has been made over the past hundred years or so about the beginning of the earth.  Some people believe that the earth, and life on the earth, came from a gradual process called evolution.  According to this theory, simple organisms somehow evolved into more complex organisms and continued mutating and growing until arriving in the modern, twenty-first century world of vast diversity and complexity.

Others choose to believe the Bible when it says “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.”  I happen to be in this category, just in case anyone reading this would wonder.  As I was reading this verse in Jeremiah, I started to think about the beginning of the earth.  This verse tells us that “The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even thy shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens…” 

I thought about all of the different civilizations of the past and their “creation myths,” some of which make for interesting reading and some of which are just down right strange.  None of those “gods” made the earth.  And they will perish.  But what of those who believe in evolution?  They would stand up and say that they do not believe in any god making the earth.  Then it occurred to me.  Evolutionists worship human intellect and reason.  That is their “god.”  All worship of intellect and reason and even nature is just an advanced form of self worship.  And I believe that the Bible would tell us that that too will perish.

There is only one God who “made the earth.”  Let us be glad today that we serve and worship Him!

  1. Thank you, Ben

    This is a very interesting verse … 🙂

    Thankful that the God who made the universe has an interest in me!

    Your post reminds me of a song we sang years and years ago in Sunday School ( He’s got the whole world in His hands 😉 )

    Blessings, Ben!


    • That’s a good song! I haven’t heard that in years. 🙂 Sometimes I look at the stars and am amazed that the One who created it all actually cares about me and what I do. That makes me very grateful!


  2. Thank you, Ben. Speaking as one of not much intellect, I am more than thankful for Him to be in charge of the whole creation, of what lasts and what doesn’t. God bless you, Ben, for helping us cling to Him!
