Biblical Creation Does Not Hinder Evangelism!

One of the signs of the end times that Jesus warned us about is that the "love of many will grow cold" (Matt. 24:12 HCSB), due to the increase of false teachers and other things. I believe this applies to the disdain that many people have for God's Word, and the blatant compromise from various old Earth, "progressive creationist", and especially from theistic evolutionists. (Many TEs, I am persuaded, are actually Deists because of their low view of Scripture and their vicious temperament toward biblical creationists.) Love for Scripture, and a straightforward reading of it, has grown cold for them.


Theistic evolutionists and other old Earth proponents spread the falsehood that biblical creation interferes with evangelism, therefore, we should compromise on God's Word. The linked article shows why this is ridiculous.

Unfortunately, too many professing Christians succumb to the minatory threat of ridicule; they don't cotton to looking like "science deniers" or "stupid" in the eyes of those who hate God. So, they compromise with long ages and even with theistic evolution. TEs often link arms with atheists in their ridicule of biblical creationists, and it is often difficult to determine whether an argument is being presented by a TE or an atheopath. One falsehood that old Earth proponents present is that biblical creation hinders evangelism, so it's best to go with materialistic interpretations of science. Not hardly! (They show a glaring inconsistency by wanting to allow what "science says" about history, but still claim to believe that Jesus rose from the dead, which is contrary to secular science views as well.) Here is a "feedback" article that responds to some challenges, the first by a TE, the second from an atheist.
First, Matthew P, a Christian evolutionist from the UK asserts that young-earth creation is harmful to evangelism. Dr Jonathan Sarfati shows the opposite, and explains the baneful consequences to the Gospel of denying its foundation in Genesis. Then NH, an atheist from the US, hurls elephants about science and asserts that God deceived us and set up Adam and Eve to fail. Dr Sarfati explains some of the science and why God did NOT entrap the first couple.
