Man Has Twisted and Opposed God’s Creation: Part 1 :: By Ron Ferguson
We are now living in a twisted, contorted, and inverted world. In fact, the change has not been a slow creeping of the years but a very rapid convolution that has ascended from the pit and into the world. In almost every aspect of human existence that was taken for granted and had stability in years gone by, there has been a demonic reversal of seeming goodness into a dark, sinister evil. It covers all aspects, and here are some of them: the right to freedom of speech, the sanctity of children and their gender and sexuality, the unquestioned right to life for the unborn, the sanctity of the marriage union between men and women only, the use of natural resources (e.g., fossil fuels God has given), the creation of God, and there are so many others that could be cited.
THESE ARTICLES CONTAIN IRONY. However, I think some people don’t understand irony. Don’t get it muddled. The statement of the Bible, each time I use it from Genesis, is followed by the direct contradiction the enemy would use. The contradiction will always be in inverted commas and represents what is said in opposition. It is a bit similar to this – 1 Kings 18:27 “It came about at noon, that Elijah mocked them and said, ‘Call out with a loud voice, for he is a god. Either he is occupied or gone aside, or is on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep and needs to be awakened.'”
THE FIRST MATTER
Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God…” [[“No, God was not in the beginning. That is because there is no God. The existence of a God is contrary to our minds, which are set on humanism and rationalism. The mark of modern society is its cleverness in dismissing any notion of a God. The past was a time of myths for children and old people. The enlightenment has remedied that.”]]
Before man came to be dominated by science, the people of Earth never questioned a higher authority. Most of the world before Christianity was dominated by paganism, but that at least recognized a greater being or beings, even if the people were subject to idolatry.
In the last 300 years, with the advance of knowledge, the world spawned humanists, inflated egos boosted with self-importance, the so-called rational thinkers. These became atheists. Most were/are educated people with degrees and high profiles. These atheists sit right in the center of that wisdom that God calls foolishness. The wisdom of man is foolishness with God. These foolish people control the education systems and the government advisory bodies and have permeated right through society.
The great modern trailblazer of the present world’s inversion was Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), a man Satan used to create great mischief. Others followed – Bertrand Russell (1872-1970); Stephen Hawking (1942 – 2018); Richard Dawkins, born 1941; Peter Singer, born 1946 and said to be the most formidable living atheist in the world; and Christopher Hitchins (1949-2011). The very worst thing that can happen to a person is when reality shatters through consciousness and exposes such a dreadful loss. Some of those men are now in hell with their atheism and associated humanism blown apart.
I would like to ask atheists what was there in the beginning if you take God out of the equation. I would like to know what credible explanation they would have once God is removed. Would they say that nothing was there 13 billion years ago? They can’t admit to any form of deity, so they would have to settle on “Nothing was in the beginning.” Then I would like it explained to me how anything could come out of nothing.
We live in a world of matter. Our bodies are matter. How could matter come out of nothing? In the next section, I take up the Big Bang, but atheists claim there was this matter compressed into a minute particle, so how did that come about if the Big Bang was true (which it isn’t)? Explain the “matter.”
A problem similar to this existed in Paul’s time. They were the Gnostics, who were a class of people with this higher knowledge, those who had been enlightened from the mundane thinking of the lower classes. I will not outline the platform of the Gnostics but will say this from scripture because it is what God thinks of them:
1 Corinthians 1:25-27 “because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. Consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong.”
Colossians 2:8-9 “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. In Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form.”
THE SECOND MATTER
Genesis 1:1 “…God created the heavens and the earth.” [[“No, He didn’t because there was no God to do that. It was the grain of exploding sand that created the heavens and the earth. It all came about by chance. All that must be true because our scientists say it happened that way, and they should know. They are the experts.”]]
Or, if you like, Mr. Google knows everything, and he is very clever! Mr. Google says, [[“In the early years, everything was made of gas. This gas, mostly hydrogen and helium, expanded and cooled. Over billions of years, gravity caused gas and dust to form galaxies, stars, planets, and more. The matter that spread out from the Big Bang developed into everything in the universe, including you.”]] There you are – did you know you were nothing but bags of gas and dust? Hot air is a gas. Mr. Google is full of hot air, methinks.
There we have it. We are all magically part of a big bang, all part fragments of the universe, and it all just happened to happen! Of course, who would know better than the National Academy of Sciences: [[“The Big Bang theory says that the universe came into being from a single, unimaginably hot and dense point (aka, a singularity) more than 13 billion years ago. It didn’t occur in an already existing space. Rather, it initiated the expansion – and cooling – of space itself.”]] There we are. Aren’t these humanist scientists clever! They conclude some “singularity” initiated the reaction that made everything. That makes God superfluous. Let us worship THE SINGULARITY!!
Young people told me once that things made themselves. Now that is the ultimate in concealed cleverness! Some say they just happened to come into being. I am certain my house did not just come into being, or my car, or that dog over the back that keeps barking.
So something around the size of a grain of sand exploded! The size of a grain of sand! I would defy any scientist to compress the size of an apple into the size of a grain of sand, let alone compress the size of the universe. And they actually believe this! Then they tell us we have rocks in our heads for believing in God. Why, I bet they believe in Santa Claus also.
Going back to something earlier from Mr. Google – “OVER BILLIONS OF YEARS, GRAVITY CAUSED GAS AND DUST TO FORM GALAXIES, ETC.”
Have you ever thought how amazing gravity is? It keeps us on the earth. On the moon, it allows us to jump further. On a smaller asteroid like Vesta, if we jump too fast, we drift off into space. In a chaotic big bang that morons try to ram down our throats, there would be disorganized chaos. Yet Google mentions “gravity.” Gravity belongs to the laws of physics, and these were created by God with all the mathematical preciseness that God put in place. The very laws of physics prove the existence of God. Man, in his own wisdom, is all too clever in his own deception.
I want to add one of my own poems written in 2022 on this very subject –
THE WISDOM OF THE WORLD IS FOOLISHNESS WITH GOD
“A Creator? It stretches the mind,” they say, “to believe in that.”
Yet there’s no problem accepting life from a meteor as fact.
As for a Master Designer forming the universe? Well, NO!
It came from a big bang, a sand grain-sized particle. That is SO!
When it comes to life, they get most vocal about their pet notion;
“A wonder,” they claim, “without any God,” such is their devotion.
Their tenaciously held belief – evolution – is a faith leap,
Which is so absurd, that life originated from a scrapheap –
A few chemicals, and a universe of chance for that great hoax,
Painted over millions of years with fantasy from broad brush strokes.
The sceptics’ denial is universal over time and place.
The truth they reject outright, but a fanciful lie, they embrace.
Sinful man will never change, and builds castles of humanism,
But its unchanging foundation is intellectualism.
Man parades his brilliance in wisdom’s self-absorbing arrogance,
Then expects the general populace to pay him false reverence.
But NO. Our devotion belongs to the God of precise wisdom,
Not to the false self-acclaimed misconception found in man’s system.
In all decisions that are made, God is dismissed as meaningless.
As blind men assessing an elephant, they show their prejudice.
The wisdom of the world is foolishness with God, and is assessed
Against human philosophies, where God’s absolutes are suppressed.
Universities lead the way in delusion and deception,
Proud of their “wisdom” and dismissal of God, in their perception.
God winks at this, for one who negates God is right now deluded.
When one relies on his own props, from wisdom, he is excluded.
Foolishness is when one takes the wrong path, knowing the right is there.
It will lead to rejection in the end, when all things are laid bare.
Philosophy and vain deceit and human ingenuity
Will count for nought when measured against God’s wise perpetuity.
Christians are considered “simple people” and so we are – that’s fact.
The ones Jesus called were simple folk, but not many “wise” would react
To His wisdom, but against it. Foolish things of the world God chose,
To shame the wise, the mighty and the noble, that they’d be exposed.
Christians are weak in the world, but we will shame the strong, Paul explained,
But the ones who are truly wise in God are those His name have claimed.
For God, I don’t mind being “foolish” in the eyes of the world’s wise;
Believe it when His word tells us that what comes will be no surprise.
We will be judged by God, and His wisdom always, I love to know.
Get to know your Lord better and better while we’re still here below.

* The reference to blind men and an elephant comes from a well-known poem, “The Blind Men and the Elephant,” by John Godfrey Saxe. It is set in Hindustan.
As usual, the scriptures have the answer to this nonsense of humanistic atheism – John 1:3-4 “All things CAME INTO BEING BY HIM, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” And there is one step before that – Hebrews 11:6 “Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” It is faith that divides the light of truth from the darkness of man’s atheism and skepticism and denial.
God created the heavens and earth and everything that is contained therein. The world outside of Christ may continue to function in unbelief, giving no thought to eternal realities, but God created the heavens and the earth and everything contained therein! Even nature teaches us the principle of consequences – cause and effect. Put your finger on a hot kettle, and you get a burn. Eat poisonous mushrooms, and you will get ill. Commit sin, and it causes spiritual death. This must not be ignored, but men do.
I have sad news for these God deniers and deniers of God’s creation. Not only did God create the heavens and the earth in the past; He will create new heavens and a new earth in the future – Revelation 21:1 “I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea.”
It will be most sad in the extreme that when God does that, all these atheists and deniers will be in the lake of fire (Revelation 20) when God creates the new heavens and earth in Revelation 21.
If you read this and you have not given your life to the Lord Jesus Christ in repentance, then you must do so, for the outer darkness awaits you in eternal separation from the goodness and compassion of God. Sin will have eternal consequences.
God is still on the throne, and puny man tries all sorts of devices to displace Him, but they fail utterly. People and governments enact laws that oppose all that God has revealed of Himself, but in the end, they will all be forced to bow the knee and do this – Philippians 2:9-11 “Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
