Duane Gish, Ph.D. One of the claims most frequently used by evolutionists for excluding the scientific evidence for creation in public schools and to be denied for publication in scientific journals is that such evidence is not based on natural laws, therefore it cannot be scientific. They claim that evolutionary theory is based on natural laws and thus qualifies as a scientific theory. Hence, the theory of creation must be excluded, but the theory of evolution is admissible (of course, it must be absolutely atheistic). However, evolutionary theory is not based on natural laws but is actually contrary to natural laws.
I am startled at how many preachers and students, in an effort to learn God’s will concerning marriage, divorce, and remarriage, begin at 1 Corinthians 7. To start one’s study at 1 Corinthians 7 is like reading the last chapter of a book and drawing conclusions about the book. God has revealed his will concerning marriage and divorce in Genesis 2, Deuteronomy 24, Malachi 2, Matthew 5, Matthew 19, Mark 10, Luke 16, and 1 Corinthians 7. We must read the scriptures concerning marriage and divorce IN THE CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER GOD REVEALED HIS WILL. Adam and Eve did not have 1 Corinthians 7. Those under the law of Moses did not have 1 Corinthians 7. Those alive during the life of Jesus did not have 1 Corinthians 7. A person is simply studying the topic backward by beginning at 1 Corinthians 7 because those who lived before the apostle Paul’s writing did not have this information. When you begin a study of marriage and divorce, please study God’s word in the order that God revealed his will to humanity.
