Which Came First, The Chicken Or The Egg

Posted by on Aug 7, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments


This below question was asked of me last week at a camp. I recalled a poem I had read from A Closer Look At The Evidence1 :

Which came firstWhich Came First, The Chicken Or The Egg


Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

This question we must pose

The answer rests upon God’s Word

And what the evidence shows.


Evolution says it was the egg;

Pure chance brought us the bird.

The Bible says God made the bird

In Genesis One of His Word.


These views we know can’t both be true,

No matter what men say.

So we must lay out all the facts,

And let them point the way.


If we look closely at what’s found

In fossils, stars, and cells,

They point out there’s a Master Mind

And He designed them well.


Of course, mankind just laughs at this.

They won’t admit it’s true.

They know that if there is a God,

Accounts to Him are due.


As Christians, here’s where we can’t fail

To know God’s world and Word.

Our reasons for belief in Him

By no means are absurd.


The Bible says to seek out truth;

Foundations must be strong.

So when men say they have the facts,

We’ll know what’s right from wrong.


Let’s read God’s Word, apply our minds,

And seek Him with all your heart.

God said He’ll teach us wondrous things

And truth to us impart.


So when we’re asked to clarify

That eggs weren’t first and why,

We’ll know God’s Script, point to the facts,

And have a sound reply.


If we can spur man to rethink

His views on evolution,

Perhaps He’ll see the facts show God

As the correct solution.
