It has been a little while since I've posted. Life has been quite busy lately with ministry, planning a wedding and finding time to relax the mind. I was really encouraged by a movie that I saw on Saturday afternoon. It is called "Expelled."
I would encourage every believer to go and watch this awesome movie. It depicts the reality of the science world and how many people do not want to ask the hard questions. I do not want to give it all away for you if you haven't seen it, but go and check it out. I hope that it opens up dialogue with people on the issues of darwinism and that we as believers can love and be willing to discuss the issues of Intelligent Design and Evolution.
For many people, they think this issue of Darwinism and Creationism is out-dated and overdone. I have been learning more and more of how vital the word, "foundation" is to life. The church needs to respond to the world's questions (Why am I here? Is God real? What is truth?). The foundation of darwinism is that we are made from primordal sludge and that ultimately there is no purpose to life. You live, you work, you die, that is it. The foundation of God's Word teaches us that we are created in the image of God and we have a purpose in this life. I'm thankful that God reveals Himself in nature, through DNA, and his intricate creation all the way down to a singe cell.
Many reject this whole line of thought because Christians are many times viewed as ignorant. Go check out the movie and if you were inspired as I am, you will continue to study God's Word and our culture so that we have an answer to the confusion that is running rampant in our culture.
Paul writes that we must be prepared to give an answer. Notice the last two words used...we are not to argue, but love people with our words and actions while standing on the foundation of Christ.
15But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." 1 Peter 3:15
