Survival of the fittest
When I was in high school I was taught a Biology theory called the survival of the fittest. Here is the Wikipedia definition of Survival of the fittest copied for you.
“Survival of the fittest” is a phrase that originated from Darwinian evolutionary theory as a way of describing the mechanism of natural selection. The biological concept of fitness is defined as reproductive success. In Darwinian terms the phrase is best understood as “Survival of the form that will leave the most copies of itself in successive generations.”
In nature if you adapt the environment you can live longer, you can produce more offspring and you will dominate the earth and can continue by overcoming danger or hardship.
The purpose of this article isn’t to argue whether or not the theory is true or not. I know God created the heavens and the earth and I know that those who give due respect to the creator survive.
But when I always think about the fear of the Lord the survival of the fittest theory comes to my mind.
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. Romans 1:28
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Romans 1:21
God created the heavens and the earth. To survive on earth you need at least a wisdom. To survive on earth you need the wisdom of the fear of God.
The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. If you don’t have this minimum requirement, you don’t survive on earth. You may live but not really live. You may exist but not be living.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10
We can’t survive on earth and in life not fearing the Lord and not giving due respect for the God who has created us all and sustains the earth.
The fear of the LORD adds length to life, but the years of the wicked are cut short. Proverbs 10:27
Those who fear the Lord will survive having the goodness of God by their side.
How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you. Psalm 31:19
Those who fear God survive evil by being delivered By God’s angels.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Psalm 34:7
Those who fear the Lord are highly blessed and their generation survives by becoming blessed as well.
Praise the LORD. Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who finds great delight in his commands. His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed psalms 112:2
According to the Bible, the best way of survival mechanism isn’t getting rich or being famous or being mighty but to fear the Lord.
