Over the years I have observed children growing up in the church and have seen them full of joy and confidence derived from their faith in God, along with enthusiastic zeal that was instilled in them by their parents. I would watch with utter delight when they would participate in drama skits, testify at home meetings, read scriptures, and so on. I watched as these young men and women entered high school coming out on the other side all depressed, down trodden, and saying they no longer believed the Bible because of the teachings of science and history (evolution) that are contrary to the basic historical chronologies of the Word of God and the overt implications that the Bible is a book of myths.
I often hear clichés cited by Christian authorities (parents, pastors, and teachers) that conflicts between the Christian faith and science are unimportant, and that we should just be content to encourage our children and students to build their relationship with Christ and that will build their faith and trust in the truths of Bible. I am all for encouraging our children and students to build their relationship with Christ; however, young men and women today are more prone to be influenced by their peers who all stand unified in these matters. I am also keenly aware of the shortcoming of that philosophy… and that is the loss of our children due to the teachings of science and history (evolution) that are contrary to the basic historical chronologies of the Word of God and the overt implications that the Bible is a book of myths.I personally want to do all I can to combat these losses and the deceptions of these humanistic teachings.
The scripture says in Hosea 4:6: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
This is good example of this scripture. I did some research to find any Christian publication that would address all the historical and scientific evidence that supports the biblical model of the universe. I found many good books that addressed particular areas of interest but nothing that covered the gambit from A to Z that could be used as a textbook for Christian educators.
Unfortunately, there is no avenue or medium for our children to receive this information. Our churches are not teaching this in their Sunday schools. Christian schools and home schoolers are not getting this on chalkboards. Parents don’t have the resources or tools to prepare and protect their teenagers heading into secular high schools and colleges from the onslaught of anti-Christ teachings.
The conflict is not between science and the bible but rather between humanistic (atheistic) theology and Christianity. The secular schools, based on humanistic theology, are teaching our children that the Bible is just a fairytale and convincing them that science and history has well established that as a fact. They will take a bit of empirical scientific evidence that actually fits the biblical model “as is” and develop an extraordinary theory to make it fit in their evolutionary model, stick it in the middle of several segments of facts so that it blends in, and not tell the student it is just theory, so that it comes across as fact. The student grows up not knowing the difference, becomes a teacher, and teaches it as fact as well. After several generations, it becomes an ingrained fact. I mentioned to someone the other day how the dynamo engine powering the earth’s magnetosphere was just a theory with no supporting evidence, and he asked me if I also believed the world was flat. That is how far removed from reality society has become.
God’s word says in 2 Cor. 6:14: Be you not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what partnership has light with darkness? And in Eph. 5:11: Have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. And then in 1 John 1:6 If we say we have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. And finally, in Col. 2:8: Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
I look at this publication as my “95 theses” that I am nailing to the secular humanists’ church doors. I have had enough of the make-believe world that they have created and the pseudoscience that dominates the halls of education these days.
My hope in publishing this book is to start a fire that will burn down the established scholastic protocols, get back to true science and research, and open the doors to be able to go where the science is leading. I want to see the churches that sponsor schools and home schooler’s institute this as a textbook (Vol I & II) that is required reading for all high school students. I want Christian parents to read this and be able to obtain knowledge to relay to their kids as they grow up and to put it into their hands to read (and study) as they enter their high school years. I would like to see this being taught in Christian colleges, Sunday schools, special classes, and as a topic at home meetings in churches around the world.
