Each According To Its Unique Kind
"You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honor and power;
For you created all things,
and by your will they exist and were created."
God didn't start a process of evolution. His Word says he CREATED all that is.
Look at the following passage and take note that when the Lord repeats something, he is emphasizing it:
"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.
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."
Only in this generation, since the discovery of DNA, can it be proved that nothing "evolves." Each KIND of creature has a unique number and type of DNA, ACCORDING TO ITS KIND. So a fish will never bring forth a turtle, because the DNA of each is unique to its KIND.
The current delving into cloning and messing with DNA is very, VERY dangerous and this is going to bring horrific judgment. The Word of God tells us that in the days of Noah there was a mingling of DNA, creating beings that were only half human, beings the Bible calls "giants." God's response: a flood that destroyed them all, all except Noah and his family. The wise will heed the words of Almighty God.

Do You Know Him? Does He Know You?
"Now by this we know that we know Him,
if we keep his commandments.
He who says, “I know Him,”
and does not keep his commandments,
is a liar, and the truth is not in him."
1 John 2:3-4
When one is born again, there is a transformation that takes place inside. God, who had been only a faint thought before, now becomes everything to the believer, and thus begins the desire in every born-again believer to keep his commandments, to follow him with the whole heart.
When someone claims to know Christ but lives for self and for the devil, the truth is not in this one. He is self-deceived.
"Many will say to me in that day,
‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name,
cast out demons in your name,
and done many wonders in your name?’
And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you;
depart from me, you who practice lawlessness!’"
The important question: does he know YOU?
"Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith.
2 Corinthians 13:5
