Even Unbelievers Understand the Importance of Genesis

Christianity has fought, still fights, and will fight science to the desperate end over evolution, because evolution destroys utterly and finally the very reason Jesus’ earthly life was supposedly made necessary. Destroy Adam and Eve and the original sin, and in the rubble you will find the sorry remains of the son of god. Take away the meaning of his death. If Jesus was not the redeemer who died for our sins, and this is what evolution means, then Christianity is nothing! — G. Richard Bozarth, "The Meaning of Evolution", American Atheist (February 1978), p. 30. Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the wo

Stumbling Apologists

Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar. — Prov. 30.5-6 , NKJV Here is something else that I cannot understand: Willful ignorance. At least, it looks like willful ignorance to me. There are some apologists for the Christian faith who are utterly brilliant and have taught me a great deal. There are also some that are brilliant philosophers of theology that I do not try to understand because I find the depths of philosophy that they practice to be tedious and impractical, and I do not want to expend the mental energy in following what they're saying. Then there are the philosophers that do great work, and I do  need to expend the mental energy to learn from them. How is it, then, that a layman like me can spot flaws in their work? I mentioned one time that a certain apologist said that he would not let science tell him how to view Scripture, and so h

Breaking Fellowship — A Rant

Once again: "So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will." — 2 Tim. 2.22-26 , ESV by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Most of the time, I try to keep these articles instructive and/or practical. This time, I am making the article a personal thing because I am hurt and angry. (Plus, some instructive and/or practical bits.) At the risk of sounding pretentiously noble, my "hurt" was not from personal attacks. Rather, I am hurting because of the way Chr

Abortion and Conscience

Perhaps I am going about this post the wrong way. It has several items in it (audio, video, links to articles) and I do not want you to lose interest. On the other hand, I do not want to spread them out and have you lose your place. So, I will keep them together. First, I have written an article at "Piltdown Superman" discussing the relationship between evolutionary thinking and how it encourages abortion. I hope you will indulge me and click here to read it . Second, here is a 1-1/2 minute audio from Ken Ham at Answer in Genesis discussing the link between evolution and abortion (or click here if the embed fails ): Third, here is an article by Tony Perkins at Answers in Genesis: The abortion debate is far more than a mere political issue. It strikes at the heart of every society. Without the light of God’s Word upholding the sanctity of human life, Western nations lose all respect for the sanctity of the unborn. Having grown up in a Christian home and having accepted Jesus C

One Hundred and Eighty Degrees

An Experiment

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. — Philippians 4.8 , KJV This article will be nice and short. I have written several times in various places that I like a couple of analogies about the mind. My use of them is inconsistent, and even overlaps at times. Oh, well. The first one is that the mind is like a computer. It uses the information that you give it, and GIGO (Garbage In, Garbage Out) is often a very accurate description. The other analogy is that the mind is like a garden. I find this one to be more consistently accurate than the computer analogy, because thought seeds are planted, fed, watered, encouraged and eventually yield some kind of crop for good or ill. We need to be careful of what we receive into our thought processes
