Your dog or your neighbor?

Evolution vs GodRay Comfort has a new DVD titled “Evolution v. God”  It is typical, solid stuff that we have come to expect from our brother Ray.  I would encourage you to purchase the DVD or watch it on the web Here.  Then share it with others and show it to others.

In the DVD, Ray interviews various college students and professors on campuses in California.  He asks them very simple questions, such as “Can you give me one observable example of one kind of animal becoming another kind of animal?”  Typically the answer is stunned silence.  But a few professors try their hand at it and end up giving examples of animal adaptation (or micro-evolution), not macro-evolution on the scale required for Darwin’s hypothesis to be true.  One example is a bacteria acquiring new abilities to do certain things, but of course, as Ray points out, it is still bacteria!

While I found the banter between Ray and these very well-educated believers in evolution informative and amusing, the thing that disturbed me most was when Ray got around to exposing the ethical results of people believing evolution theory to be true.

Ray asks at one point: “If you saw your dog and your next door neighbor both drowning in a pool which would you save first?”

Several students hesitate, which in itself is disturbing.  Some wrestle mightily with it.  One guy asks, “Is anybody looking?”  And some of these smart people are honest enough to say they would definitely rescue their dog before the human being.  Keep in mind these are the future leaders of America.

Well, oddly enough a poll revealed on the CBS Morning Show this very morning reported that 60% of Americans polled said they would save their dog from drowning rather than save a foreigner.  How they would identify that person as a foreigner, who knows?  And does this imply they would save an American before their dog, but not a Canadian or Mexican?

God help us!  Do we really wonder why we still abort several thousand babies a day in this country?  Ideas have consequences, dear friends, and I am not sure how much longer this nation can bear up under the consequences of Darwinian evolution.

In Psalm 115, the Lord tells us that “Those who make them [idols or false gods] will become like them.”  We become like our god(s), plain and simple.  And this idea of evolution and Big Bangs and godlessness has done precisely this – it has made us like what we idolize and worship.  Darwin said and most college professors of science still say we are nothing more than an accidental animal. And so we have truly become just like accidental animals in our thinking and living.

So, what to do?

  • Seriously read your kids’ textbooks if they are in public schools.  There is no such thing as a state-run school where children are not being indoctrinated in the worldview of Darwinian evolution.  Counter every lie with God’s Word.  Equip your children to spot the lies, expose the lies, and challenge the inconsistency of the lies.
  • Think twice before giving tens of thousands of your dollars to an institution of higher learning where atheistic professors poison the minds of future leaders.  When you pay tuition, you pay their salaries.
  • If you have children in public schools, start a campaign to allow Intelligent Design curricula to be taught alongside the evolutionary textbooks.  It is not unscientific, as opponents claim.  It is very good science that follows the actual evidence where it leads – to the Creator.  Expect grand resistance to this campaign.  But is it worth the effort?
  • Petition school libraries to include scholarly journals and magazines from Creation Research Institute or Answers in Genesis or Intelligent Design organizations.  Again, expect resistance.  Write letters.  Make calls.  Insist children be given access to all the data so they can make assessments and decisions on their own.  This is educational freedom!
  • Send your children to private schools or home school them.  I prefer this option to the others, but do think we desperately need both happening in mass around our nation.

Bottom line – until parents care this will not stop.  And if this does not stop, the final results will be catastrophic.  

“When lust has conceived, it brings forth sin.  And when sin is brought to completion, it brings forth death” (James 1:15).

Leighton Minor - I think this post is way off base and diminishes the ultimate power of God.

If one day evolution or the big bang are proven to be true, does that negate the need of an all powerful God? Is our faith so small that we can’t imagine a God who was creative enough to come up with Evolution?

And why is the answer to pull kids OUT of school? Where is the verse that says “do not associate with the world if they have a different view than you”? How do we reach the world by isolating our kids from the world?! How are they ever going to know how to reach a world they don’t understand?! We worship a God that is bigger than anything we could hope or imagine. We need to teach our kids that we can embrace science, we can embrace discussion, because our God is big enough to handle it. Science seeks the truth and God is the ultimate truth. Science can only help us!

Articles like this only show the world that we’re bigoted and worshiping a God that is small and irrelevant and not able to handle modern science. Instead of shrinking away from the world and boxing God in, we should embrace the world to show them how big God is.

tlbcassocpastor - Hey Leighton, your comment was put into my spam folder so I am just now seeing it! Anyway, thanks for reading and commenting. I respectfully disagree with your view that accepting the Bible as the absolute and ultimate authority on ALL MATTERS, including the origins of the universe, somehow is “boxing God in.” God has spoken clearly as to how He created all that is. Science, if it is true science, will never controvert or contradict God’s absolutely true word on the matter. If “science seeks truth” then it had better consider Jesus’ words in John 17:17, “Your [God’s] word is truth.” Genesis 1-2, and many other biblical texts on creation, clearly rule Darwinian evolution out. God did not use one kind turning into a completely different kind of creature over billions of years. The Bible has spoken to this issue with clarity and authority. Jesus said God made man and woman “from the beginning of creation” (Mark 10:6), not after several million years of evolution. Besides, as Ray Comfort has proven time and again, not even the very best evolutionary scientists out there in academia can show one concrete piece of evidence that “one kind to another kind evolution” has ever been observed. That’s not science, so let’s not call materialistic evolution something it is not. God cannot be separated from His words, so if He says He did it a certain way, then God did it that way!

As for homeschooling, this educational method is the only one given specific and certain commendation in the Bible! See Deuteronomy 6. That does not mean I think other Christians are somehow “less Christian” than me if they choose other methods. But as for your request for a “verse that says ‘do not associate with the world'” you might try 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 which says precisely that we should live distinct and separate lives from the lost world around us. Does this mean I do not want my children to learn other religions and worldviews and interact with those who do not believe in Christ? Well, to make that accusation, Leighton, only means you do not know me and you do not do life with me. My children share the gospel of Christ with their lost neighbors ans friends in yards and playgrounds and shopping malls. They are being given a distinctly biblical and Christian education that I contend equips them to be “in the world not of the world” in a far superior manner than any public educational venue could possibly offer. And in the end, let’s not forget that our children have absolutely no hope of ever “understanding the world” to use your phrase if they do not have a comprehensive worldview that is grounded and saturated in the Word of God and His Gospel. Any other interpretive filter will only lead them to a deceptive grasp of the world and the humanity and creatures in it. I am not sure what you mean by “embrace the world” but I get the feeling you really mean embrace their false views that will lead them to hell apart from Jesus Christ. That’s not the embrace I want any Christian to embrace (pun intended). We show the world how big God is by insisting on bending our lives to His absolute truth revealed in His Word. To claim to love Jesus and do anything less is not given to us by our Lord as an option (John 14:15). In the Word, the Bible, God reveals that He is SO BIG THAT HE CREATED THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING IN IT OUT OF NOTHING IN 6 DAYS. And, by the way, He could have done it in a single moment. He’s that big!

Thanks for the comment. I pray for you to trust the God of the Word and the Word of God. You can rest your whole eternity on what God says, Leighton. God is that big!

Dimitri Kovalenko - Mat 14:22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.
Mat 14:23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
Mat 14:24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
Mat 14:25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
Mat 14:26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
Mat 14:27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
Mat 14:28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
Mat 14:29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
Mat 14:30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
Mat 14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
Mat 14:32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
Mat 14:33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
