Grape Ape

“By wisdom the Lord laid the earth's foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place....” (Proverbs 3:19).

We think we have created a new hypothesis or the better mousetrap, when in effect we have only discovered what God has already thought. The materials have always been there; what improves are methods of discovery. Man thought he went one better on God when he espoused evolution, but the study of the cell refutes this onerous theory. I have a drawing of the cell that I sometimes put on my desktop, to remind me that only God could have devised something so beautifully complex.

It defies sanity to believe that we came about by haphazard grumblings and ruminations! If so, then Jesus died in vain; there would have been no reason for His saving us from our sins, for what then is sin? We are made in God's image, not an ape's, although from some of our actions, God must wonder at times. "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness..." (Genesis 1:26). May we act like this is so, by acting godlike.

Look up the word ape; it means a parody, a mockery, a contempt; perhaps this is God's joke on those who think they know more than HE does! This reminds me of a funny cartoon. The ape is hanging on to the bars and looking at the guy on the outside who feeds and takes care of him. With a look of disgust, the ape is asking himself, “Am I really my keeper’s brother?”
