Is there any hope for this generation?

September 12th, 2010

As I observe the people of this generation, I truly wonder if there is any hope for them. After spending twelve years in our government schools, the graduates have been taught self esteem, an expectation of entitlement, relative values and pornographic sexuality. This is all to be expected because the main thing taught by this culture is that they evolved by random chance from miscellaneous chemicals dissolved in sea water. At the same time they are encouraged to believe in either no god whatsoever or a pan-theistic earth goddess paganism.

This is a tragedy. The result of this “education” is a generation of people that do not understand that there is absolute truth. Even though it is so easy to see that this universe was designed for life (the anthropic principle), that there have been catastrophes that reshaped the earth (the fall, the flood), they still have chosen to believe the lie that God does not exist. They are sinners that need to be redeemed, eternal souls that are choosing to spend eternity outside of the presence of God.

The biggest part of the lie is the government and media relentlessly denying one sentence: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Gen. 1:1) Every chance they get, in every documentary or news story, they casually mention that evolution is a proven scientific fact. If you cannot get past the first sentence of the message God sent, you have no reason to believe that he has the authority to set up and enforce rules. If you do not have to believe in a creator you definitely have no need to believe in the need for a redeemer.

Part two is this: if you make it past the lie of evolution your total lack of training in critical thinking, logic, mathematics, history or anything else that used to make up education makes it possible for you to be a Bart Simpson like under achiever with little or no effort on your part. If you manage to find out that you are a sinner you then have about a 90% chance of ending up in a church that does not tell you about how to be redeemed, does not teach you basic biblical doctrines that will cause you to grow closer to God. Instead you will probably be entertained with  great music, fantastic broadway quality productions, highly organized programs that  help you do good things for society or the environment, anything but the blood of Jesus.

Fortunately, anything is possible for God. God does not desire for anyone to go to hell. He can talk directly to your spirit, get the truth to you. All you have to do is receive that truth and act on it. The deck is stacked against you, but keep an open mind.

    Why is that you have to pit God against evolution? Why do you have to make science and God enemies? Is it not possible that God could have used a process of evolution to create the world? It would be no less miraculous! The credit for creation would go nowhere but to God. Human beings have no less purpose in life. What about the many highly committed Christians who are scientists. They give all the credit to the Lord and believe in a process of evolution which God orchestrated. Are they all just idiots?

    Why evolution cannot be true…

    I do not pit God against evolution. God said he created the universe out of nothing, then he formed all life from the matter that he created. The scientific establishment has chosen to deny that anything exists besides the natural universe that we can observe, but many scientists have followed the evidence and concluded that this universe is but a shadow of a larger reality. The bible has been saying that all along.
    Life shows evidence of intelligent design, not random evolution. Did God wait for mutations to develop and encourage them to survive, or did he use what amounts to Object Oriented Programming to give us the marvelously designed life we observe in a universe that was exactingly tuned to support life. Even the position of the earth in our galaxy, between the dust lanes in arms of the milky way gives us an excellent vantage point to discover the universe around us.
    The more I learn about science, the more I understand what God said in the bible to be true. The problem is the progressives took over education about one hundred years ago and have been slowly but surely turning the children under their care away from God, away from true science, away from history as it actually occurred, and toward the godless communist system our elitist government wants. Why say that the evidence shows that massive amounts of water burst from a huge lake in central Canada to erode out the badlands and the grand canyon and other structures. That is what God said. If we say it happened over millions of years, then we can deny God exists.
    It is a choice between a system of thought that says no one is in charge, so there is no sin for me to be guilty of and a system of thought that recognizes that the one who created us has standards we have to live up to if we are to have fellowship with him.
    God gave me the ability to understand science. he also gave me the ability to discern when science has been subjugated to a political agenda that hates and denies God. God did not orchestrate evolution. God skillfully designed the universe. Any attempt to marry the two world views denies the preeminence of our creator. You can believe the lie of orchestrated evolution or you can study science and come to the conclusion that God is a marvelously skilled creator and deserves all praise for the wonderful things he has done for us.
    Remember psalms 14:1 and 53:1, \”The fool has said in his heart \’there is no God\’\” So yes, I guess they are all idiots, or at least fools.
