Growing Unbelief


Growing Unbelief

I was saddened by the report (12/31/13) that 60% of Americans now believe in evolution. Only 90 years ago, it was illegal to teach the false theory of evolution in American public schools. Now, the reverse is true: It is illegal not to teach evolution; it is illegal to say the truth that God created all things!

The Pew Center recently polled people about their views on evolution. I discovered that 33% of all adults believe in Biblical creation (all things continue since the beginning of creation), while 60% believe in evolution.

It is a sad day in America when a once-religious country has degenerated to the point that most of its citizens fail to believe the Bible on origins. No more than 33% of all adults believe that God created all things and they continue, without evolution, to the present.

Yet the Bible says, “By [Christ] all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth” (Colossians 1:16). God said, “In six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them” (Exodus 20:11). That should settle the matter for anyone claiming to believe God. There is no excuse for unbelief.
