Anti-Creationists and Faulty Worldviews Part 2

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

As you can tell from the title, this here article is a continuation. To see Part 1, click here. I hope you do, so this makes more sense to you.

Many times, we get comments from atheists on the prod who claim to be "former Christians" (sometimes claiming they were Christians for many years), and then proceed to show little knowledge of the Christian faith. Often, it is because atheists are notorious liars (as I have shown several times before, especially with this one). Often, people think they are Christians because they were raised in a church-going home, or because they're not Mohammedans, Buddhists, or something else, so "Christian" is a kind of default position for them. (One atheist who claims to be a former Christian was raised in the Christadelphian cult; he's not a used-to-be, he's a never-was.) But these alleged former Christians display little knowledge of the faith and the gospel message.

Discussing "former Christians" and other anti-creationists, as well as encouraging Christians to get a good understanding of their own faith.

Betcha thought I was done with Dr. James White since I referred to him in the first part, but I have something very important to share from him. "Christian" Brit rapper Jahaziel has actively renounced the faith and posted many reasons — I mean, excuses — for doing so. He even used the Zeitgeist video, something that has been soundly debunked but still used by the uninformed to fuel their hatred of God. His excuses for rebelling against God are typical of people who prefer prejudicial conjecture to actual information. I strongly recommend that you watch (or download the MP3) Dr. White's episode of the Dividing Line, "They Went Out from Us: Jahaziel’s Excuses for Abandoning the Faith". This illustrates the way many people "think" and are motivated by emotions rather than reason, especially when it comes to inane "reasons" for rejecting Christ.

We definitely need to know Scripture! However, we also need to be able to give a reason for the hope that is in us (1 Peter 3:15). Evolutionary propaganda creates stumbling blocks for people coming to Christ. Evidence alone is insufficient, because this is a spiritual problem and not intellectual, but we need to be able to show that there are answers available. God's Word is true and can be trusted in all things.

The main reason I started to write this article was to show how anti-creationists misrepresent not only biblical creation science, but lack understanding of their own worldviews. In addition, many who claim to be former Christians were never really part of us (1 John 2:19). However, I have to take lazy Christians to task as well. Sure, some want to defend the faith and show that evolutionism is scientifically and rationally bankrupt, but that won't happen if we don't learn our own worldviews. We also have to get edjamakated about where the other side is coming from. Don't let an atheist or evolutionist make a monkey out of you. The Christian life is not a party (despite what Joel Osteen may tell you); it takes work and perseverance. Standing up for the authority of Scripture and the truth of science, beginning in Genesis, is also difficult, and the world hates us for it (2 Tim. 3:12, John 15:18-20). One reason I'm here, and many other ministries exist, is to equip the saints to defend the faith. Time to saddle up and ride for the brand, old son.
