HOW TO CURE OUR SOCIETY OF ITS MANY TROUBLES …

*

… I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me – Exodus 20: 5

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come  – 2 Corinthians 5: 17

God is still creating new creatures in Christ Jesus, in righteousness and true holiness, which cannot come by evolution, for sinful creatures can only grow in sinful­ness, until the creative power of God makes them new creatures, as the following study in Eugenics will show:

Jonathan Edwards
October 5, 1703 – March 22, 1758

Elizabeth Tuttle, the grandmother of Jonathan Edwards, the eminent scholar and divine, was, according to H. E. Walter, a “woman of great beauty, of tall and command­ing appearance, striking carriage, of strong, extreme in­tellectual vigor, and mental grasp akin to rapacity, but with an extraordinary deficiency in moral sense. She was divorced from her husband on the ground of adultery and other immoralities. The evil trait was in the blood, for one of her sisters murdered her own son, and a brother murdered his own sister. Richard Edwards, his grandfather, had 5 sons and 1 daughter, by a second wife, but none of their numerous progeny rose above mediocrity, and their descendants gained no abiding reputation. Jonathan Edwards must have owed his remarkable mental qualities largely to his grandmother rather than his grandfather. By the grace of God he was evi­dently made a new creation in Christ Jesus and was cured by grace of all inherited immoralities so that he became the ancestor of one of the most remarkable families in the history of the world, as follows:

Jonathan Edwards was born in 1703. He was strong in character, mentally vigorous and fearlessly loyal to duty. In 1900, of the descendants of Jonathan Edwards, 1394 had been located and the following information in regard to them had been gathered: College presidents, 13; college professors, 65; doctors, 60; clergymen, mis­sionaries, etc., 100; officers in the army and navy, 75; eminent authors and writers, 60; lawyers, over 100; judges, 30; holders of public offices, one being vice-presi­dent of the United States, 80; United States senators, 3; managers of railroads, banks, insurance companies, etc., 15; college graduates, 295; several were governors and holders of important state offices.

The claim is also made that “almost if not every de­partment of social progress and of public weal has felt the impulse of this healthy and long-lived family.”

Conversely the Jukes family was founded by a shiftless fisher­man born in New York in 1720. Since that time the fam­ily has numbered 1200 persons. The following facts are quoted from the records: Convicted criminals, 130; hab­itual thieves, 60; murderers, 7; wrecked by diseases of wickedness, 440; immoral women, fully one-half; profes­sional paupers, 310; trades learned by twenty, ten of these learned the trade in prison.

How much of this expense to the state was due to bad blood we cannot say. If the original Jukeses had be­come Christians we have no doubt that the majority of their descendants would have been humble, but orderly, and possibly useful citizens.

Aaron Burr, a grandson of Jonathan Edwards, lacked but one electoral vote to become president of the U. S. His intellectual standing in Princeton was not equaled by another for 100 years.

Jonathan Edwards was a new creation, as is every other regenerated person.

According to the theory of evolution, there can be no new creation. According to the word of God, and the experience of an innumerable host, God is continually creating souls anew, who become “new creatures.” Evolution is not in harmony with the Bible nor the experience of the chil­dren of God.

Whenever it can be shown that men become more spiritual when they accept the theory of evolution, and become more devoted to saving souls as their zeal for the theory in­creases, the theory will be worthy of more serious con­sideration.   We await the evidence.

Evolution cannot account for the spirituality of man, but tends to destroy it where it exists.
