Darwinism’s Stranglehold on the Christian Mind
"At what chapter in the book of Genesis does the Bible begin to be true?"
This is a question we find ourselves repeating more and more often as we participate in discussions on Facebook and other social media websites. Obviously, we're not asking atheists this question; after all, they don't believe the Bible is true at any point. We are asking this question to Christians of various denominations who attack us for our belief in a literal six-day creation and the global flood of Noah's time.
Many of these people appear to have a high regard for the Bible, sprinkling Bible verses into their online postings. They even seem to accept the miracles recorded in the pages of Scripture - especially the miracles recorded in the New Testament. But when it comes to the creation account given in the first chapters of the Bible - and the worldwide flood just a few chapters later - they wriggle and squirm and try to explain it away.
Such is the deadly stranglehold of Darwinism on the modern mind - even on the minds of Christians. Many people have been so indoctrinated with evolutionary dogma all their lives, they have a difficult time discarding it after they become Christians. Sadly, some of them end up as "theistic evolutionists" - believing that God created through the means of evolution.
On the positive side, however, some of these people are able to accept as true the early chapters of Genesis when they are shown the inconsistency of their position. So the next time you run into one of these people - either online, in the workplace or even in your church - challenge them to think about their position. Ask the question at the beginning of this blog posting or this one: "If you don't believe what the Bible says about how we got here, how can you believe what it says about where we're going?"
