The Fish and the Loaves Cry Out

By Michael Shoesmith

Let's imagine, in the theatre of our minds, two Christians walking along the Holy Land and happening upon a large clearing. One of them notices something in the terrain. He bends over and discovers a fish bone. Upon further analysis, he discovers that it's around two thousand years old. Not only that, but there was thousands of them scattered all over that area.

Now, imagine one Christian turning to the other and saying, "most of these fish appeared instantly in the arms of God as he held the near empty baskets and miraculously multiplied them". The other Christian might be tempted to say, "well, that can't be right. It's scientifically impossible. There must be another explanation". The first Christian replies, "But it's in the Bible and ". "Ha!", says the second Christian, "you can't take the Bible literally. It just isn't scientifically possible and therefore it didn't really happen that way". What are we to make of this? Ridiculous, you say? Yet, it is exactly what Christian evolutionists do with militant vigor every day on this and countless other blogs around the world.

The Bible has something to tell us about creation. The Christian evolutionists defer to science and come up with excuses that slap God in the face. God chose Moses to write down the creation story on his behalf so that we would have a solid foundation to stand on. So that we can look to heaven and say, I am not an animal. I am not the result of nature's choosing. I will not bow to the understandings of mortals. I will choose, by faith, to believe the account given to us in the book inspired by my creator. By doing that, I denounce any other and publicly refute the high-minded ideas that seek to exalt themselves above the truth in the public square.

From a scientific standpoint, those fish bones did not come from fish which appeared miraculously out of thin air. But those fish and those pieces of bread are crying out from the past and saying, "what happened with us will not be tested in a lab and proven to be true, but it did happen. It did happen".

God didn't pick a backward hick with a sun burned mind who had no clue where rain comes from to write down what he thinks happened according to popular culture. God picked Moses. He spoke one on one with Moses and told him the truth and Moses took dictation from God. It will not be tested in a lab and proven to be true but it did happen. It did happen.

This article was written to my brothers and sisters in Christ. To the rest of you I say that just because I believe what I believe by faith it does not mean you are correct in your scientific assessment of origins of any kind, whether cosmological or biological and I will continue to point these things out to the religious atheists as they make their deranged opinions public. God loves you, atheist. I used to be one of you. I was passionate about my atheism. I was wrong and so are you. For you to continue to be wrong into eternity is to be eternally wrong having wasted your time on earth trying to ignore at best the creator of the universe or at worst claim to know through evidence that there is no God. He is really there Mr. Atheist. He is looking at you right now. He knows why you do what you do and he loves you anyway.

God has been violating the laws of science since day one. Naturalism is not his method of operation. His method of operation is hearing the prayers of the saints and moving mountains to answer. Healing the sick when the doctors run out of answers. Sparing the home when the storm comes through. Protecting the teenager when the parents lose hope. Loving a person when all they deserve is hell.

Matthew 15:36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.
38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.
