The Weekend that Weakened Belief in Biblical Creation

Belief in biblical creation was opposed a week ago (February 12-14) by the 854 congregations in 50 states, the District of Columbia and 12 countries that celebrated "Evolution Weekend" - an annual event organized by The Clergy Letter Project. On a positive note, however, this year's number of participating congregations was down from the 1,049 congregations that celebrated Evolution Weekend in 2009.

The entire list of participating congregations can be seen at The Clergy Letter Project's website: This is also where you'll find a list of the 12,000+ clergymen who signed The Clergy Letter, which stated:

"We the undersigned, Christian clergy from many different traditions, believe that ... the theory of evolution is a foundational scientific truth, one that has stood up to rigorous scrutiny and upon which much of human knowledge and achievement rests. To reject this truth or to treat it as 'one theory among others' is to deliberately embrace scientific ignorance and transmit such ignorance to our children."

The signers of the letter also agreed to this:

"We urge school board members to preserve the integrity of the science curriculum by affirming the teaching of the theory of evolution as a core component of human knowledge. We ask that science remain science and that religion remain religion, two very different, but complementary, forms of truth."

As you peruse the list, you'll see that churches in many denominations participated in this year's Evolution Weekend. Perhaps you'll find some churches from your own denomination. That's why Creation Moments urges you to be on the lookout for false teaching and to thank church leaders who teach truths that come straight out of the Bible ... like biblical creation.


These pseudo-Christian churches need to stop being goats and rejoin the Lord's flock. Parroting the evolutionists doesn't make them smart ... it just makes them more worldly. This might sound desirable to them until they realize that worldliness makes them unfit for heaven. I'd like to know just what kind of rigorous scrutiny evolution has stood up to? When has a dog ever produced a kitten? Or a cow jumped into the ocean to become a whale? Let's have some real, observable science rather than wild fairy tales. Last time I checked, each living thing was reproducing, each after its own kind, just as the Lord stipulated.

True science looks at facts and evidence. It's not politically motivated. What evolutionists and their sympathizers have is not science, but unsubstantiated conjectures. What creationists have is fact, backed up by historical, eye-witness accounts. Who's practicing the real science here?

I wish Christians would stop trying to have one foot in the world and the other following Jesus. The Lord said we were either for him or against him. So either we accept what he says is true ... which isn't hard, since the evidence is right before our eyes that evolution is a farce ... or we go along with the crowd because it's popular.

Just beware! Going along with the crowd leads to disaster. Just like the herd of swine that ran violently down a steep cliff to perish in the sea, those who follow the message of the enemy will find that they have abandoned life everlasting to perish in the darkness of confusion. If you run away from the Lord rather than toward him, you're doomed. And that's the truth.
