The Bible Stands
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth, but the word of our God shall stand for ever! Isaiah 40:8
When faced with evolution's fallacy, a melodious hymn rings truer, fuller, louder in my ears, "The Bible stands every test we give it for its Author is Divine...Its pages burn with the truth eternal and they glow with a light sublime."
As Christians we stand on the Word of God-- an unmovable, fixed foundation. From reading the first verse in the first chapter of the Bible, we can know the beginning of this world's existence. We can see the Divine Fingerprints impressed on the beautiful, complex world we survey. The Bible-our rulebook-provides us with a reinforcement, a documentation of the evidence that points to an amazing Creator.
The Christian Equestrian’s Path to Authenticity

Romans 1:22-23 tells us that a spiritual imbalance and tendency toward idolatry can be expected on earth, “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.”
Though it may be touted that our era is an “enlightened age”, the Bible tells us that those who embrace in doctrines contrary to scripture are living in darkness and are devoid of the only source of Light –the Triune God of Christianity. “This then is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:5-7).
The Lord further directs Christians to disassociate ourselves from and reprove the works of darkness2 bringing every thought into harmony in obedience with Christ.
"Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor. 10:5).
