The Mastermind behind evolution

Category: Evolution related
Let us analyze the hypothesis of evolution. It is presented to the public with ‘a delicate manipulation of the truth’. Not all the experimental facts are given, so that the public are lead to believe lies. Is this natural or unnatural for so-called science? It is definitely unnatural.
Why would evolution be promoted world wide with lots of cost and effort if it is not the truth? Why would lies be sold to unsuspecting customers? What is there to gain? Who is behind this and what are the rewards of this venture. Lets look at the background and motivation of evolution to answer this question.
This idea of evolution comes through many generations from the Greek philosophers in 600 BC. Its spread is world-wide. This is not the work of a few individuals, but of a mastermind with a spiritual influence to convince people that there is no Creator. By saying that all life descended from one common ancestor, and insisting that it is the truth, without any factual scientific proof, we have what we commonly describe as either selective amnesia, or to be more blunt: outright lies. Who could this mastermind be? The Bible describes only one person as the father of all lies, namely the devil (John 8:44). How did it come about that the devil got this label?
God as Lord, King, Creator and Judge is absolutely perfect, without any character faults. As a perfect being, He created angels and men to establish an eternal Kingdom of peace. But as God, He cannot create other perfect beings, since they would then be God also. God created beings in His image, but they were not perfect. This explains why one of God’s creation could be imperfect, prone to sin(doing the opposite of God, namely be perfect). They had the freedom to think, feel and choose for themselves. They were not programmed to do His will. Their freedom of choice was not merely a statement, it was put into practice. So there was a test to show if they would love and obey God or not. (An unrighteous ruler would not take the risk to do that.)
One of the angels, named Lucifer, decided to use his freedom of choice to try to usurp God’s rule. He was thrown out of heaven, but his condemnation was postponed. God would use Lucifer to be the sifter for the citizens of His eternal, peaceful Kingdom. This beautiful angel convinced one third of the angels to follow him. How did he do it? Surely not by talking the truth. He had to lie, and so he became known as the father of lies. The first time Eve met him, camouflaged as a snake in the Garden of Eden, he speaks his native language of lying and deceiving.
The devil and his agents, the fallen angels, have one thing in common: they hate God. Against Him they are powerless, but they try to deceive the people made in God’s image. (God would give a means of escape through Jesus Christ.) The devil has a massive disinformation program going on all the time. Evolution is one of his successful weapons in this battle for the allegiance of men. With his success in convincing Eve that it is better to listen to him than to God, he got hold of man’s lawful ruler-ship over the earth. This is recorded in John 12:31; 14:30; 16:11; 1 John 5:19.
Why did God allow the devil to hold sway over the people, even though Jesus won the battle on the Cross? The devil continues to do the sifting of all people for God’s eternal Kingdom. God’s reign is explained in the Bible, and accepted by Christians who are the salt of the earth. God allows the devil to demonstrate on this earth what a kingdom that he reigns, looks like: the newspapers and news report the misery, hatred, discord, wars and murders of a society that rejects God and chooses to follow the devil’s deception. Tornadoes, hurricanes and floods show how disrupted nature became after the devil took over the reigns of this earth, and it was cursed.
The devil’s main goal is to sow discord between God and man. How does the idea of evolution succeed in this? By teaching that there is no God. This is done by presenting to an unsuspecting public distorted facts that supposedly prove that the earth was not created by God, and is very old. When people believe that they are actually animals with no purpose, their reaction is: ‘Why worry about God? Why think or enquire about Him? There is no God. Let’s enjoy ourselves and when we die everything is done with.
Conclusion: By consciously suppressing some data, evolutionists manage to convince the public of their story about the origin of the universe and the earth with its myriads of living things. The public is deliberately fed lies that lead to an eternity without God. When we analyze evolution, we conclude that we are dealing with many inconsistencies. One lesson is: never blame the people. They are influenced by an eternal spirit being, the devil. Rather resist the spirit behind someone who believes in or proclaims evolution (Ephesians 6:10-18; 2 Corinthians 10:4,5).
