God is creator
The Apostle’s Creed begins with these words, "I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth....."
That statement is based on the opening words of the Bible, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Genesis 1:1
What we believe has a profound affect on how we live.
If a person believes he evolved from some form of animal life, he lives his life without any sense of accountability to God.
Such a person is not concerned with either pleasing or displeasing God.
To Him God’s Law and God’s revealed will are totally irrelevant.
The lack of accountability coupled with no felt need to please God or avoid displeasing Him is reflected in both attitude and conduct.
Those who believe in evolution are often characterized by an attitude of "crass individualism."
The prevailing philosophy of their life is expressed in these or similar words.
"Its my life and I have a right to live it as I please."
The only one they are really interested in pleasing is themselves.
Whatever stands in the way of self-gratification is to be avoided or destroyed.
Such people are a potential danger to themselves and others.
There is no ultimate restraining influence in their lives.
On the other hand, those who believe God created them as well as the heaven and the earth have reason to live as those who will one day give an account to their Creator.
To them, God’s Law and God’s revealed will should be vitally important and it should be reflected in their attitude and conduct.
Those who believe in the Biblical account of creation have a totally different view of life than those who choose to believe the theory of evolution.
They are very much aware their life is not their own and they do not have the supposed "right" to live it as they please.
They believe someone else does have the right to tell them how to live their life and that someone is God their Creator.
They do not steal simply because they might get caught by the local authorities.
They do not steal because God their Creator forbids it and they know ultimately they will give an account to Him.
The reality of such a belief is a powerful restraining influence in their lives.
When it became against the law to teach the Biblical account of creation, a restraining factor was removed which is evident in the fact we are now required to have police patrolling the halls of our schools.
It is true what one believes has a profound affect upon the way one lives.
