Remember, Serpent is more subtle than any beast of field. In garden, in beginning of it all, his very first attempt to destroy our relationship with God was to deceive Eve into doubting God's word. "Now serpent was more subtle than any beast of field which LORD God had made. And he said unto woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of garden?" (Genesis 3:1) Eve was quick to jump at seed of doubt offered to her, in order to obtain what her eyes had seen and desired. We are no different today.
In order to appear modern and "up to date," we jump at scientific jargoon that encourages us to doubt very Word of God. We try and become "progressive" Christians, mixing evolution and Creation. We reason in ourselves that, "maybe it didn't happen way I have always thought and been taught. I still believe in God and no matter how it happened, we really know God did it."
But that is not true. The Holy Bible very clearly states process of Creation. We even know order in which animals and mankind was created. There is no reason to guess or doubt. Either we believe God at His word, or we don't. If we don't, then blood of Jesus Christ cannot cover our sins for Scripture states that, "whosoever BELIEVETH in him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) To believe is an absolute necessity. There is no way to half believe in Jesus Christ. Either we do or we don't: simple as that.
We do not have to be rich or poor to enter Heaven. We do not have to be able to read and write. It is not important whether our friends and peers consider us well read or intelligent. The only ultimately important requirement is that we believe on Jesus Christ for remission of our sins and take Him at His word.
"Keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning faith. Grace be with thee. Amen." (1 Timothy 6:20-21)
