Truth and consequences

I just heard a story that made me pray that God would forgive us for our arrogance and stupidity. The story was that a number of "conservative evangelicals" have come out denying the historical Adam and Eve.  Their argument?  That "scientific evidence" makes it "unlikely" that the diversity of the genetic code could have begun from one single couple. 

So that I don't go on a huge rant, I'll skip right to the heart of the matter.  Who are you going to believe - God or man?

Who are you going to trust for truth and morality - the creator God who is wholly good, wholly just, wholly righteous, or humans, who kill, maim, destroy, steal, and hurt each other?

Whose wisdom will you trust - the LORD, who knows all things, created all things, and can "show you great and unsearchable things that you do not know," or that of man, which changes all the time, and which admits that we understand very little of this world. 

Ultimately, it comes down to this:  Choose you this day whom you will serve, but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.  Either God is who He says He is, and His word is true, or he is an invention of crazy people who lived in the Middle East and needed something to explain their world. Choose one.

These church leaders will one day stand before the Lord God Almighty and answer for their choices.  So will the rest of us.  Choose either to believe God, fully and by faith, or choose to reject His word based on the incompete knowledge of mankind.
