EVOLUTION OR CREATION
May I request you to give few minutes for this little but very important material?
Some one said like this:
20 years from now it won’t matter what you wore today or how you looked
But, what you read today and how you used it.
Some people do not want to give any account of their lives to anyone. So they try to avoid and ignore the Almighty God. To reinforce this attitude, they would deny the creation account and promote the “Evolution Theory” framed by Charles Darwin. So they would live the way they like as there is no one to fear. However, very few people know the true account of last days of Darwin. Here is what Charles Darwin did during his last days. Now Read on….
Lady Hope, who visited Charles Darwin during his last days on earth, has the following to say regarding his views on evolution towards the end of his life: It was on a glorious autumn afternoon when I was asked to go and sit with Charles Darwin. He was almost bedridden for some months before he died. Propped up with pillows, his features seemed to be lit up with pleasure as I entered the room. He waved his hand towards the window as he pointed out the beautiful sunset seen beyond, while in the other he held an open Bible which he was always studying.
“What are you reading now?” I asked.
“Hebrews,” he answered, “still Hebrews. The Royal Book, I call it.” Then he placed his fingers on certain passages and commented upon them.
I made some allusions to the strong opinions expressed by many unbelievers on the history of the creation and then their treatment of the earlier chapters of the book of Genesis. He seemed distressed, his fingers twitched nervously and a look of agony came across his face as he said, “I was a young man with unformed ideas. I threw out queries, suggestions, wondering all the time over everything. And to my astonishment the ideas took like wildfire. People made a religion of them.”
Then he paused and after a few more sentences on the holiness of God and the grandeur of this Book, looking at the Bible which he was holding tenderly at the time, he said: “I have a summer house in the garden which holds about thirty people. It is over there (pointing through the open window). I want you very much to speak here. I know you read the Bible in the villages. Tomorrow afternoon I should like the servants on the place, some tenants and a few neighbors to gather there. Will you speak to them?”
“What shall I speak about?” I asked.
“Christ Jesus,” he replied in a clear emphatic voice, adding in a lower tone, “and His salvation. Is not that the best theme? And then I want you to sing some hymns with them. You lead on your small instrument, do you not?”
The look of brightness on his face I shall never forget, for he added, “If you take the meeting at 3 o’clock this window will be opened and you will know that I am joining with the singing.”

About Prof. H. Enoch (1905-1988): The man who practiced “sermon on the mount” literally during this century in our own land. He had lived among fishermen in Vizag when he was working with Andhra Medical College to identify with the poorest of the poor.
He was the Head of the Department for Zoology in both the prestigious colleges of Chennai viz., Madras Christian College and Presidency College. He is the one who initiated the UESI movement in 1954. He ministered unto His Master Jesus Christ while he was associated with Jehovah Shammah Assembly, Chennai as an elder. Br. Bhakht Singh had supported his UESI ministry very much. This UESI (Union of Evangelical Students of India) is a student movement linking college/university Evangelical Unions (EUs) throughout the Indian Subcontinent and is a member of the IFES (International Fellowship of Evangelical Students).
I personally request my student friends to have the copy of “Evolution or Creation” written by this great man of God, which can be obtained from UESI.
