Are logic and feelings standing between you and God?
What is the greatest cause of hypocritical Christians?
Have you fallen for the great disconnect?
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. — There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1-5, 9-14
Here’s the great disconnect. A recent PEW study says that 90% of Americans believe in God, while another PEW study notes that 62% believe in evolution. This means that 52% of those who believe in God follow a secular belief system, feelings, or logic rather than the clear teachings of God.
This was recently demonstrated at the 2014 DNC convention. The members three times loudly voted God off of their platform, even while being encouraged to include God for appearance purposes. Should we be surprised? Christianity and evolution are mutually exclusive.
So why does this bother me? Doesn’t everyone have the right to believe as they choose? Yes of course, but what most bothers me is when beliefs that reject God are represented as christian. When more than 50% of Christians reject the Creator – hypocrisy is for certain on one issue after another. Choosing man’s supposed knowledge over God’s eternal truth is contrary to the teachings of Jesus, and will only lead unknowing people away from Christ.
Christianity begins with believing in Jesus Christ and the text above makes it clear that the Creator and Jesus Christ are one and the same. “All things came into being through Him (Jesus), and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being” If evolution was somehow determined to be true — God’s Truth could be demonstrated to be untrue, and all of God’s promises could be more easily disregarded.
But God’s truth is eternal, and the views of men will never change this fact. “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” Jesus is the truth and the life and no man will receive eternal life except through Him. And those who are controlled by darkness will never understand the truth which is revealed by the light (Jesus). Unbelievers always disregard God’s truth, and Christians who stand on false teachings to please others spread confusion and hypocrisy.
Evolution is atheistic. Darwinian evolution is a lie because it denies the creator. If a confessing Christian doesn’t have enough faith to believe in Creation, what does this say about their faith in Jesus? Christians who believe in evolution have been deceived on this point by doctrines of demons and rendered hypocritical as a witness for the cause of Christ. “But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons” 1 Timothy 4:1
But Divine Creation is clear for All to see.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.” — “because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools” Romans 1:16-22
All Means All and that’s all All means.
Grace and Peace to you my friends,
