Christ: The Answer to Superstition

Galatians 3:1
“O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?”

Christians are often portrayed as foolish and superstitious. Various writers and commentators talk about Christianity as an outdated, pre-scientific faith. Creationism has often been called pseudo or false science. But is it true that Christians are more given to superstition and pseudo-science than others in society?

PhrenologyA study which carefully analyzed figures gathered by the U.S. Census Bureau shows that accusations that conservative, Bible-believing Christians are more prone toward superstition are completely wrong. The truth is just the opposite. The study shows that Bible-believing Christians are, in the report’s words, “most virtuous according to scientific standards when we examine cults and pseudo-science proliferating in our culture today.” The study also found that the most prone to cults and pseudo-science were the irreligious and religious liberals.

Now, stop and think for a moment. So-called fundamentalist or Bible-believing Christians almost always accept the Genesis account of creation – yet, they are the least prone toward false science. We clearly see this principle in history. When biblical Christianity takes over among people, they have less interest in superstitions and cults. And creation is very much a part of that Christianity.

Yes, Christ and the gospel is the light of God in this dark world!

Heavenly Father, I thank You that the light of the gospel of Christ has shone in my life because of Your Word. Help me to be able to spread that light to others in this world that is rushing toward so many superstitions and cults. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
