We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Creation vs Evolution -- Two Religions


When we discuss creation/evolution, in both instances we are talking about beliefs, that is, religion.  The controversy is not religion versus science, as the evolutionists try to make it out.   It is religion versus religion, the science of one religion versus the science of the other.

Evolution is a religious position that makes human opinion supreme.  ... its fruits (because of rejection of the Creator and Lawgiver) are lawlessness, immorality, impurity, abortion, racism and a mocking of God.  Creation is a religious position based on the Word of God, and its fruits (through God's Spirit) are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  The creation/evolution issue (is God Creator?) is the crux of the problems in our society today.  It is the fundamental issue with which Christians must come to grips.  The creation/evolution issue is where the battle really rages.

The Lie is a good book. I read it. It made my unbelieving scientist friend very, very angry, though.

"Evolution is a religious position..." - great point! Another book to add to my library :)

At our former Covenant church system, the pastor believed evolution was true (he was later asked to leave this church and has not returned to the pastorate), and our copy of "The Lie" was give to the Sunday School Superintendent upon his request, only to be returned with a scoffing rebuke stating, "Ken Ham doesn't make a very strong case because evolution could have been used when God created." Leadership in churches does have an impact upon those who do not read the Scriptures for themselves.....we no longer sit under this church system. Praise God!
