Light for the Last Days

The Tower of London hosted the light show “About US” on its walls from November 16-19 and we went down to witness it. The spectacular artwork tells the story of 13.8 billion years of human history from the Big Bang to the present day.  After its showing in London, it is going round the county, to Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The show began with these words:

‘In the beginning friends there was nothing. Friends, in the beginning there wasn’t even nothing.  Shortly after the beginning it is generally agreed there was light. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. If that’s even possible. Here’s a story, but it isn’t a story about the universe or science or history. It’s a story about us and how we came to be here. It’s a story about all of us, it’s our origins story. 
We are all related – we came from the same place. Now we are here. But not for long. Not forever. You see, we are little more than temporary constellations of atoms and molecules born in the big bang, scattered across the universe and gathered together for a brief but magical moment. The iron in our blood, the calcium in our bones, the oxygen in our lungs, were all forged in the heart of long dead stars. We are not in the universe; we are the universe.’ 

The show then takes us through ‘13.8 billion years of history’, showing years of evolution with different creatures projected on the walls, purporting to show the progress of molecules to man evolution.

It ends with a somewhat apocalyptic scenario of the modern technological world alongside burning trees and mass destruction, presumably a call to save the world from global warming. 

Throughout the show there is dreamy New Age type music playing, flashing lights and visual images, creating a surreal atmosphere and opening people up to indoctrination and mind control.

A few of us went down to put an alternative view, giving out leaflets from Creation Ministries InternationalQuestioning Evolution’ and ‘Evolution or Biblical Creation?’. 

When these ran out, we passed out my leaflet ‘Hope for the Future’ about the second coming. 

I was preaching to the people as we gave them out, saying things like,

“You are being lied to, there was no Big Bang. Many scientists today acknowledge it is impossible that the universe was formed this way. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. God made us, God loves us, God sent Jesus to save us from our sins. We must give account to God on the Day of Judgement. Jesus is coming back soon, repent and believe the Gospel.”

Or variations on the theme.

Most people scoffed and walked by, some listened, including a man who came up to me and said, ‘You’re right, this show is rubbish, there was no Big Bang.’ I asked if he was a Christian and he said no, but from his studies he had come to the conclusion that evolution is not a possible explanation of the origin of the universe, of life and human beings. He took a leaflet and said he would read it. A number of Muslims were there, and some took interest as they too should (in theory) believe God made the world, not the Big Bang. 

It is tragic to see the level of indoctrination that is going on and the young people who are being exposed to this lying propaganda that tells them that this is their origin.   

Look at the errors in the presentation above:

  • In the beginning there was nothing.’ Please tell me how nothing exploded and created this vast and ordered universe. ‘There wasn’t even nothing’ – a bit of New Age confusion now entering in. 
  • Shortly after the beginning it is generally agreed that there was light.’ Agreed by who? Where did the light come from? How could something as vital and complex as light appear out of and explosion of nothing and random chance? No answers given. 
  • This is the story or our originsA story yes, a fiction made up in the mind of fallen men and women under the influence of the enemy of our souls, to confuse and degrade humans whom God made and created in His image. 
  • We are all related.’ In fact, we are all related to one race of humans descended from one original man and one original woman as evolutionists now acknowledge (even calling the woman Mitochondrial Eve)But we are not related to the stars and the inanimate objects in the universe. We are specially created. We are much more thantemporary constellations of atoms and molecules born in the big bang, scattered across the universe and gathered together for a brief but magical moment.’ All living things are made of millions of cells with a particular DNA which contains a vast amount of information in each one. There is no possibility that this could have come out of inanimate objects. The origin of life itself is one of the biggest unanswered questions in Darwin’s theory of The Origin of Species.
Mitochondrial Eve | Answers in Genesis

All life, and human life in particular, has to be made and designed by a Creator of infinite wisdom and power. We are in the universe, but we are not the universe. That is pantheistic New Age dogma (all is one, god in everything) which makes no sense of who we are and of the difference between created objects and living things made by God. We are separate from inanimate things. We are not a soggy mass of New Age soup, gathered together for a moment only to disappear into nothingness. We are created in the image of God with infinite potential if we will only ally our feeble lives with His eternal life. 

In the Genesis account it keeps saying God separated – light from darkness, sea from dry land, and created different kinds of plants and creatures, all able to reproduce after their own kind.

The History of Creation
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” 7 Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
11 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 So the evening and the morning were the third day.
14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. 17 God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20 Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Genesis 1 – The History of Creation

We are different from the animals having a spiritual connection to the God who made us and has redeemed us from our sins through the Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us and rose from the dead to connect us to the eternal, not the temporary, and the moment we die we will meet Him, either as our Saviour or our Judge. 

And though we are heading for an apocalyptic conclusion to our human story, but it will not end in a hopeless vision of a destroyed earth and the end of life, but in the triumphant return of the Lord Jesus Christ to set up the kingdom of God and reign for ever in the new heavens and new earth.

Pray for the people, especially the young people, who are being subjected to this propaganda. If you hear this show is coming to your neighbourhood, go along to it and take some of these leaflets and tell people about God’s version of our Creation story.

  • I was shocked reading this, grieved and saddened, it’s good some of you went to witness to the truth, l don’t think l could have kept quiet..l would be thrown out for speaking out and tell everyone it is nothing but lies from the father of lies! .. well l don’t know what l may have said for sure, but l would need extreme self control not to show my anger (Rightoues l trust) and preach the Gospel.. oh how absolutely awful it has come to this.. a matter for prayer, we can hope, pray it may backfire.. get people thinking at least and turn to The Lord.🙏
