The Descent of Man

It is several decades now since the popular BBC documentary series called “The Ascent of Man” was aired.  Not for the first time it shows evolutionary ideas at odds with the Scripture.

Romans 1:18-32 speaks about the descent of man.  Man starts by knowing God but then starts the descent. First of all men suppress the knowledge of God, they do not worship Him and do not even give Him thanks.  Then their minds become dark and confused as they begin to think up foolish ideas of what God is like.  They traded the truth of God for a lie and they worship idols and created things rather than the creator.

As a result God abandons them over to their heart’s desires.  So they do vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies including homosexuality.  Then comes a long list including: greed, envy, quarreling, deception, gossip, disobeying parents, refusing to understand and breaking promises.  God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die.

So count me in, I too deserve to die.

Thankfully it doesn’t end there.
