Slightly Imperfect Sale!
2 Corinthians 5:17: "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
We've all seen advertisements from retail establishments selling merchandise they call "slightly imperfect". Well, if you listen to evolutionists, we humans are more than slightly imperfect. As one writer claims, "From our knees to our eyeballs, our bodies are full of hack solutions."
The writer goes on to list such supposed design flaws as a spine that was ideal when we walked on all fours but fails miserably once we stood upright. Other so-called evolutionary flaws include: meandering arteries, crowded teeth and a retina that's backwards.
But here's our favorite "flaw" of the bunch – a misplaced voice box. "To keep food out of the trachea," he writes, "a leaf-shaped flap called the epiglottis reflexively covers the opening to the larynx whenever you swallow. But sometimes, the epiglottis isn't fast enough. If you're talking and laughing while eating, food may … get lodged in your airway, causing you to choke." Want to hear his solution? Evolution should help us develop blowholes like whales and then move our voice box over there. Of course, he admits, we would lose our ability to talk!
While such "improved" designs from evolutionists are – at best – laughable, the Bible does tell us that we are, indeed, seriously flawed as a result of Adam's disobedience. Thankfully, though, God doesn't just destroy every flawed human being. He sent His flawless Son to take our many sins upon Himself and to pay the penalty that sinful people could never pay.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I know that I have no righteousness of my own. That's why I thank You for transferring Your Son's righteousness to my account and applying my unrighteousness to His! In Jesus' Name. Amen.
