Evolution can not substitute Scriptural doctrine of creation

Louis Berkhof mengatakan, "c. The Theory of Evolution. Evolutionist want to substitute their view of the origin of things for the Scriptural doctrine. They believe that from the simplest forms of matter and life all existing species of plants and animals (including man), and also the various manifestations of life, such an intelligence, morality, and religion developed by a perfectly natural process, purely as the result of natural forces. This is merely an assumption, however, and one that fails at several points. Moreover, it is in hopeless conflict with the narrative of creation as it is found in the Bible."
Quoted from Summary of Christian Doctrine, Chapter IX: Creation, by Louis Berkhof.

The day of Creation

Louis Berkhof mengatakan, "a. The days of creation. The question is frequently debated, whether the days of creation were ordinary days or not. Geologist and evolutionists speak of them as long periods of time. Now the word 'day' does not always denote a period of twenty-four hours in Scripture. Cf. Gen. 1:5; 2:4; Ps. 50:16; Eccl. 7:14; Zech. 4:10. Yet the literal interpretation of the word 'day' in the narrative of creation is favored by the following considerations:
(a) The Hebrew word yom (day) primarily denotes an ordinary day, and should be so understood unless the context demands another interpretation. (b) The repeated mention of morning and evening favors this interpretation. (c) It was evidently an ordinary day which Jehovah set aside and hallowed as a day of rest. (d) In Ex. 20:9-11 Israel is commanded to labor six days and to rest on the seventh, because the Jehovah made heaven and earth in six days and rested on the seventh day. (e) The last three days were evidently ordinary days, for they were determined by the earth's relation to the sun. And if they were ordinary days, why not the others?"
Quoted from Summary of Christian Doctrine, Chapter IX: Creation, by Louis Berkhof.

Evolution can't be a substitutes for the doctrine of creation

Louis Berkhof mengatakan: "c. Substitutes for the doctrine of creation. They who reject the doctrine of creation resort to one of three theories for the explanation of the world.... (3) Still others take refuge in the theory of evolution. But this is clearly a mistake, since evolution offers no explanation of the world. It already presupposes something that evolves."
Quoted from Summary of Christian Doctrine, Chapter IX: Creation, by Louis Berkhof.

Angels are not omniscience

Sometimes people think that angel and demons are omniscience or can read people mind. But the bible do not tell that.
The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the LORD against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.”
The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), Ge 19:12–13.
If the two angel are omniscience or can read Lot's mind than they will not ask that question.

Pantun Rohani

Main catur sekak raja
Pion berkorban s'lamatkan raja
Kematian Yesus di Golgota
Membebaskan kamu dan saya.
Jalan-jalan ke kota Tarsus
Jangan lupa beli kue Sus
Bapak-Ibu kabarkan Yesus
Karena Dia, kita hidup terus.
