Spiritually, our nation is dying. In response, conservative Christians are caught between righteous judgements and somber humility.
Our humanity enables us to relate to our fellow man on a natural level, but the good-will offer enables us to share God’s mercy and grace – enabling us to relate on a spiritual level. If we are rejected, we should not grow bitter or indignant. There is no shame in representing our faith to the best of our God-given ability. (We need not be a theologian or hold a doctorate in divinity, but we should do our homework).
Share and Defend is what I propose. Share the Gospel and Defend Christian Values. Charitably share the message of salvation, and defend the veracity of the message.
If we fail to present the one part, the other is often rejected. If we fail to present the Gospel as truth, we will suffer rejection. If we fail to present the Gospel as saving, we will suffer rejection.
Share and defend with charity and faithfulness. The power is not in us, but a half-hearted messenger will be exposed as a poor witness of the faith.
The Gospel is self-revealing, although we like to make the message more palatable by sugarcoating the more offensive parts. A faithful witness must Share a complete Gospel.
But it’s the Defend part I would like to focus on. If we do not wholeheartedly believe our own message 100%, we are toast. The wisdom and wonder to be found in the Word of God speaks for itself.
We must challenge a growing majority who seek to label Christianity just one of the many mythical religions conceived by man to make sense of the world. A Christian revival is still possible! Here’s just a few considerations that should be considered in an effort to preserve and advance a Judeo-Christian worldview.
1. The inadequacy of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution as a replacement for Biblical Creation:
A. The case for naturalism, which is at the heart of the Darwinian model of progression, fails to withstand the law of probability. Random chance is wholly incapable of producing the miraculous results proposed by Darwinists (the second law of thermodynamics further compounds the probability and overall legitimacy of evolutionary theory.) Dr. Jonathan Sarfati concludes the mathematical impossibility “that anything as complex as a protein, let alone a living cell or a human, could spring up by chance.”
B. Darwinian evolution is not upheld by the standards applied by the scientific method (not observable or testable). Consequently, every living species conceived fulfills its genetic imprint from birth (unique developmental patterns at conception).
C. Proponents of evolution understand that the scientific method only leaves room for very minor/gradual changes over a long period of time. However, some of these same proponents contradict themselves as they promote ‘punctuated equilibria’ (rapid evolution) to explain inconsistencies in the fossil record. Regardless, the lack of transitional fossils during the Cambrian Era continues to validate Darwin’s original insecurities (as he called it “the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against my theory”).
