Creation Sunday — Why Do Anti-Creationists Scream So Loudly?

For Creation Sunday, an article about how atheists and evolutionists are determined to silence biblical creationists. What's wrong with them, anyway?

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Today is Creation Sunday. It was created in response to misleading atheist Michael Zimmerman's call to apostasy called the "Clergy Letter Project". Creation Sunday is an effort to get Bible-believing Christians to take a stand for the truth, and to educate themselves on the importance of Genesis as well as how science supports creation and refutes evolution.

Why is it that those owlhoots feel the need to slap leather with those of us who believe the Bible, to recruit compromisers, and to evangelize for atheism? You'd think that they'd be content to be "right" in their own eyes (Psalm 14:1) and their rejection of God, even though they know he exists (Romans 1:18-23). They insist that we're "wrong", but they have to protect "science" (fallaciously equivocating "evolution" with "science"), and are not content to leave us alone, nor show a modicum of respect for people who believe differently.

The Bible makes it clear that the unsaved are deceived by their own wickedness (Jeremiah 17:9 KJV), and are under control of their father down below (John 8:44). They cannot understand Scripture (1 Cor. 2:14), despite the arrogant assertions of some. (When an unbeliever tries to argue Scripture, I think of Proverbs 26:7 and Proverbs 18:2.) I agree with this theology in the Reformed tradition, the "noetic effects of sin", where sin touches every aspect of someone's thinking. Atheists have no consistent moral standard, and atheism itself is irrational, lacking the necessary preconditions of human experience. Only the Bible is consistent and coherent, and has those necessary preconditions — beginning in Genesis. They're missing out on the love and forgiveness through Jesus Christ, and adoption as children of God (John 14:6, John 1:12), and cannot join us in looking at the wonders of creation, exclaiming, "My God, how great you are!"


Job 40:7-8, NIV

Because of their suppression of the truth, wicked hearts, blinded eyes, and control by Satan, they think they are doing something good by attacking! Cognate on this: People want to think they are doing good things ("He needed killin', Sheriff!") If you visit atheist sites and Pages on social media, you're very likely to find excuses for hating God and the Bible — but no actual evidence for atheism (there isn't any). Persecuting Christians, proclaiming the glories of Darwin's fundamentally flawed conjectures, uniting with apostate and compromising Christians, ridiculing and misrepresenting creationists are all a part of doing "good" things in their minds. Trying to find fault with the Creator is utter foolishness (Job 40:7-8 NIV).

Meanwhile, the rest of us who actually believe the Bible and stand for the truth will be persecuted (1 Thess. 3:4, Matt. 5:11-12, John 15:20). Their evil deeds are actually blessing us and increasing our rewards in Heaven! Out of hope that the lost will hear and respond to the gospel message, out of respect for the authority of the written Word of God, out of obedience to the commands of Jesus (Matt. 28:18-20, Acts 1:8). We celebrate the creation and the Creator, and we will not be silenced!

Andy Stanley, Frank Turek, and Bad Theology

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Andy Stanley has been disappointing some people, and causing quite a few to be alarmed by his opposition to the authority of Scripture. (Note: Do not be confused.  Charles  Stanley is his father, senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, and heard on In Touch Ministries . I've found most of his teachings to be doctrinally sound, and he upholds the inerrancy and authority of the Bible.) Unfortunately, megachurch director Andy Stanley has been saying things that are destructive to the truth, including recommending the false teaching of theistic evolution. Gray wolf image credit: US National Park Service While shooting from the hip can be a good thing, someone claiming the title of pastor should reign himself in . Stanley was disrespectful of small churches, then apologized later . In another instance, " What  did he just say?", Stanley may have used a very bad word in a sermon.

Disappointment with Young Earth Creation

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen  First, a note for anyone who is curious. The usual format: introduction with some of my thoughts plus links for useful information, excerpts of featured articles, then links to keep reading. I put my name on it and call it an article when I have more to say. This one will be different. I will reference older articles, then add some thoughts that I hope will prove helpful. There is more following the excerpt and link. So, does anyone remember Ken Keathley? Medal image manufactured at Custom Medal Maker Several years ago, Ken Keathley renounced young earth creationism to accept an old earth view. Apparently, he was disappointed by people in the young earth community. No kidding? Taking Friendly Fire This is where I'm going to open up and get personal with both of my readers. Ken Keathley is not the only one who has been disappointed, and in addition, I've been deeply hurt by the young earth community. Things I have posted on social(ist) media have been &qu

Evaluating Truth Claims in Genesis

Some people try to dismiss Genesis as myth containing spiritual truth using elements from the pagan neighbors of the Hebrews. Others say it is misunderstood, as if the Creator of the universe was unable to communicate with us. With closer inspection, we see that Genesis is a historical narrative. Credit: RGBStock /  Billy Frank Alexander The idea that the early chapters of Genesis are mythological should not be accepted by professing Christians, as there are serious problems that result. (One of these is that Jesus, Peter, Paul, and others referred to these chapters as literal history, so by denying this, one is calling them liars!) Also, there are repercussions with the gospel message. Read some classical mythology, then come back to Genesis and see the difference. Myths are vague and have a different flow, but the Bible is precise. Indeed, even the sequence of creation days is specific — a day itself is defined. Interestingly, many translations have in Genesis 1:5 less accurate by us
