Mention the name of Jesus in a political or educational setting and you will likely be told, “This is no place for religion!” In truth, the person making such an assertion is making a religious statement.
Because no person has all knowledge, any statement a person makes has its roots in faith. In faith the person assumes that what he believes is the truth and that there is NOT some portion of knowledge that would nullify his belief. His faith may be in his own intuitive wisdom, in the cultural wisdom of his day (“Everybody knows this!”), or in some other person (God or someone else). His belief is held by faith.
Every human being has a worldview. All worldviews are held by faith. No one can go back to the beginning of time and watch the universe come into existence, therefore his belief about origins, whether an evolutionist or a creationist, is based on non-provable assumption. Whether evolutionist or creationist, his belief IS BELIEF! He holds his worldview by faith. The evolutionist’s faith is as religious as the creationist’s faith.
We Christians have been fooled and intimidated by the cultural assumption that Christianity is religious and secular opinions are not.
May God give us grace, courage, boldness and faith to assert the truth of God’s Word in the market place of ideas.
Heavenly Father, I pray that you would make us valiant for the truth. Grant us lion-like courage to carry your truth into every realm of human activity. I pray this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who has received all authority in heaven and earth, and who now sits at Your right hand as exalted and reigning king. Amen!
Help Your Pastor
Here are some items I give to pastors in my county. You can print these and give them to your pastor. I also give the pastors I talk to the video described below. I encourage you to consider getting one, watch it, and give it to your pastor; you can get it from Amazon, or by making an investment in the work of the International Church Council Project.
