Assaulting the First Story

Pastor Doug Wilson on Hebrews 11:3-“By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.”

We begin with the story of creation, which (not surprisingly) is where unbelievers also begin their competing story. “By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible” (vs. 3). Faith for anything in the Christian life begins with our faith in the living and creator God. All this evolution foolishness (and various Christian compromises with it) is nothing less than an assault on the entire Christian faith. You cannot assault the first story without attacking the entire building. (Christ and His Rivals, p. 143-144)
