Pseudo-Christians - Lovers of Lies; Bigger the Better.

Everybody Loves a Gallup Poll

An Interesting Gallup Poll.

As I was sifting through some old articles in my office, I came across a U.S. News & World Report from December 23, 1991, titled "The Creation". In a poll conducted November 21-24 of that year they asked their responders into which of three camps concerning creation best fits their belief:

  1. Strict Creationist - God created man pretty much in his present form at one time within the last 10,000 years, or...
  2. Centrist - Man has developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life, but God guided this process, including man's creation, or...
  3. Naturalist - Man has developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life. God had no part in this process.

During May 10-13 of 2012 they took a very similar poll with some interesting results and changes as follows:

  • Concerning the creationist view the percentage of all Americans remained relatively unchanged. 1991 - 47% & 2012 - 46%.
  • The Centrist, the "Fence Sitters" fell from 1991's 40% to 2012's 32%.
  • The Naturalist view rose from 9% in 1991 to 15% in 2012.

When it comes to politics, creationist versus evolutionist pretty much follows political lines: 60% of Republicans and 41% of Democrats believe in the creationist view while only 5% of Republicans and 19% of Democrats choose evolution. But the most telling numbers are among those who have some religious affiliation as compared to those who do not. For those who do not claim any affiliation, only 25% hold a creationist view whereas 70% of those who do attend some religious services support a creationist world view. That 70% is a telling number in itself; that whatever church, synagogue or whatever they may attend does not teach the importance of believing in the Creator as the foundation for everything else we believe. If your foundation is not solid, neither will your house stand firm against the assaults of this age now upon us.

Listen to What the Enemy is Saying!

From the same U.S. News & World Report article came several quotes from those who are highly esteemed within our educational system, such as:

  • Carl Sagan - "The idea that God is an oversized white male with a flowing beard who sits in the sky and tallies the fall of every sparrow is ludicrous. But if by "God" one means the set of physical laws that govern the universe, then clearly there is such a God. This God is emotionally unsatisfying...it does not make much sense to pray to the law of gravity."
  • Stephen Hawking - "If we do discover a complete theory (of everything)...we shall all, philosophers, scientists and just ordinary people, be able to take part in the discussion of why it is that we and the universe exist. If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason...for this we would truly know the mind of God." Remember, if you are not a philosopher or scientist, you are just ordinary a very elitist mindset among the evolutionists

School Ain't What It Used To Be

From the Famous to the Educator.

The seduction of the masses.

Paul Blanchard, wrote The Humanist magazine article titled "Three Cheers for Our Secular State" - "Our schools may not teach Johnny to read properly, but the fact that Johnny is in school until he is 16 tends to lead towards the elimination of religious superstition. The average American child now acquires a high school education and this mitigates against Adam and Eve and all other alleged myths of alleged history." Likewise Dr. Chester Pierce, a Harvard professor of education made this statement at a 1973 seminar attended by 2,000 educators. "Every child; in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill, because he comes to school with certain allegiances toward our founding fathers, toward our el ected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural Being, toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It's up to you teachers to make all of these sick children well by creating the international children of the future.

Finally Charles Francis Potter wrote in his book - Humanism, A New Religion: "Education is thus a most powerful ally of Humanism, and every American public school is a school of Humanism. What can a theistic Sunday school's meeting for an hour a week and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of the five day program of humanistic teaching?"

Unless one has their head buried in the sand, today's schools are a battleground beyond anything my generation ever experienced and is flaunted on our news broadcasts, in political speeches and fills the newspapers' headlines. This did not happen over night, but has been brewing for nearly a hundred years and we are just now seeing the fruit of our enemy within our gates. As Walt Kelly's Pogo once said, "We have met the enemy and it is us."

THE LIE!

Several years ago I was asked to counsel a new believer, a scientist, in the basics of the Word of God and how to grow in godliness. I started with Genesis 1:1 and everything came to a crashing halt. Immediately I was informed that I was a naïve idiot and that he as a trained scientist knew that Genesis was nothing more than an allegory and was in no way factual. If you knew me, you would know that I did not back down and the conversation lasted for quite a while. Finally he came to a decision that Christianity was not for him after all and that he had heard enough. Sadly, I think he was just after some "fire" insurance at the time but if he is a child of the King, he will come around.

On the other end of the spectrum, my super-intelligent New Age believing father-in-law and I sat down one day and had a great time debating creation versus evolution. I had fun and I was sure he knew that I meant well by my "misguided" creation concepts. About two years later, he lay in a hospital bed in Phoenix dying from a massive heart attack. When my wife and I came into his room he had breathing tubes down his throat and an external pacemaker attached to his heart. He shakily picked up a small chalkboard and wrote, "pray for me to die" of which I did the opposite. Long story, short version: before we left that night they had to remove the breathing tubes and the pacemaker for everything was now working just fine; all this shortly after he had prayed for forgiveness of his sins and acknowledged his need of the Savior. The following day when sitting at his bedside, he explained how my answers to his questions concerning evolution had troubled him deeply for these last two years to the point of keeping him awake at night. He was the perfect example of a man whose life was transformed, for that was NOT the father-in-law I had known lying there in that bed. When he did pass away, I gave the eulogy at his funeral and it was all about the power of God's Word being the absolute Truth and when he was confronted with the foundational Truth of Genesis 1:1, the rest of the Word became alive with life giving power.

THE LIE!

"Yea, hath God said..." From the very beginning, the Truth has been brought into question, first by the Devil and ever since by his willing accomplices who openly defy the one true God, Creator of the heavens and earth. The Word is either completely true or if any one area flawed, then it is all together unprofitable.

Satan is a genius when comes to manipulating men to do his dirty work and has been a very patient adversary as he has instilled the "religion" of evolution into the Western culture over the last two hundred years or so. Finally wicked men can claim "scientific" justification for their rebellion against God. As you and I look around the world and the mess we find ourselves in, we have on display before our eyes the fruits of this religion. It's purpose is to make people doubt the validity of the whole of God's Word and this includes Christians who still have a lot to learn.

this is the first installment of a new series of postings with the purpose of witnessing to the accuracy of god's word, encouraging believers in their faith and convicting the doubters to the truth. may god bless!
