Jesus made an amazing statement after the hard-hearted Pharisees committed the one sin that would plunge them to hell forever (hence unforgivable). The Pharisees accused Him of being possessed by a demon, rather than filled by the Spirit. They accused Him of this because they had no other explanation (outside of the truth) for His ability to cast out demons with personal authority. Jesus pointed out their logical contradiction.
After this claim, Jesus brilliantly points out how illogical their claim is saying,
“If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand” (Mark 3:24)
Jesus’ point being, how would it make any sense at all for Jesus to be rebuking and casting out demons if He were on their team? It’s really easy to raid the castle when the guards are all fighting each other. If the kingdom is fighting itself, it aint gonna last.
Today’s Darwinism is a worldview at civil war. Take Cecil the lion as an example. Cecil the Lion was a lion that had a tracking collar and was protected by research groups. Long story short, a hunter (dentist by trade) named Walter Palmer went on hunting trip and killed the lion he legally was not supposed to kill. Whether he knew this or not is actually irrelevant. A dentist killed a lion; and the country went berserk. Jimmy Kimmel even cried over it. After spewing hateful bigotry in which he imposed his personal moral values onto Dr. Palmer, he actually cried over the dead beast. All over the media, people are losing their minds over this lion. Palmer has received death threats, his business has been closed, and he is in hiding.
Dr. Palmer: welcome to the front lines in the fight against our ever-tolerant culture. But to the point, here is where the civil war smoke is coming from: examine the situation from the Darwinist’s worldview.
What was Cecil? Cecil was a lion. More specifically, a big bag of meat, bones and mostly water. Cecil is a random meat machine accidentally here after crawling out of the sea and evolving into a something else. Guess what Dr. Palmer is, the exact same thing! The comparisons don’t end there however. Cecil, as a lion, was a hunter!
Think of all the innocent grown up germs Cecil has murdered? Think of all the animals that Palmer has saved by killing this violent hunter and preventing him from reproducing more violent hunters. Cecil’s entire life was characterized by selfishness. Cecil roamed the land, and when Cecil decided he was bored or hungry, he would murder an innocent animal and eat their bodies. Cecil was a serial killer, and never once did he at least have the courtesy to clean someone’s teeth in the process. No one throws a fit when the bag of bones we call Cecil kills another bag bones, but they won’t allow the bag of bones we call Walter Palmer to kill his own chosen bag of bones, and he is being indicted by a bunch of bags of bones who think their morality is more important than Dr. Palmer’s and Cecil’s. Why does Cecil get to kill animals and Dr. Palmer can’t?
What Darwinism is revealing to us is that Cecil and Walter are a lot alike, but they aren’t treated anything alike. They are both accidental cell bags controlled entirely by random chemical firings in their brains which causes them to kill animals, yet we love one and hate the other.
Not only does Cecil, a fellow bag of randomly combined cells, a hunter with no respect for law, not get the same hatred that his fellow bag of meat Dr. Palmer does, but one is being held to a set of standards and expectations the worldview cannot provide. It’s wrong to kill lions for sport. Says who? Not Darwin..
There are many other ways the Darwinist worldview is refuting itself and exposing its inconsistencies; however, allow me to comment on the one which everyone has been commenting on already.
Notice that Jimmy Kimmel has yet to cry over the babies that have been ripped to shreds in a way that looks like they served as one of Cecil’s breakfast dishes. These babies got it way worse than the end of Dr. Palmer’s gun, yet no crocodile tears are shed over them. Darwinism can weep when one beast is killed, but vote for the legalislation of children being burned, crushed and ripped to shreds. The castle is toppling. How repugnant and shameful is it that Cecil had more protection over there than our unborn babies have over here?
Many in this nation have adopted a worldview that teaches kids there is no God, they can sleep with whomever they desire, they can mutilate their bodies to become whatever they want, that they can marry whomever they want. They are accidents, they’re worthless, meaningless, and there is no objective morality. But as a side note, if a Dentist kills a lion, be outraged. Off with his head!
And as another side note: if you get pregnant with a baby you don’t want, then off with his head.
The good news is for us Christians in regards to Darwinism is that a nation divided cannot stand.
The bad news for us as Americans is that a nation divided cannot stand.
