Q: Do humanists think that the church isn’t a threat to their beliefs?

A: Sadly, we’ve found this to be true. Here is an interesting example of one humanist’s telling admission.

Quotable quote:

“In its bearing upon religion this vain notion is, however, no theme for mirth, for it is not only deceptive, but it threatens to be mischievous in a high degree. There is not a hair of truth upon this dog from its head to its tail, but it rends and tears the simple ones. In all its bearing upon scriptural truth, the evolution theory is in direct opposition to it. If God’s Word be true, evolution is a lie. I will not mince the matter: this is not the time for soft speaking.”

– The great Baptist preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon, on evolution, during his July 25, 1886, sermon entitled “Hideous Discovery.”

Answers in Genesis applied to county authorities to have a piece of land near Cincinnati, Ohio rezoned. We wanted to build a Creation Family Museum and Discovery Center that teaches the truth about Genesis and proclaims the gospel. The community was astonished to see the way in which the local humanist groups tried to influence the county to stop this project from proceeding.

At one of the meetings where many opponents met to try to stop our project, a humanist made this statement: “We wouldn’t mind so much if they wanted to build a church—but they want to build a creation museum to change our minds!”

Now that tells you something about the reputation of the church. Because much of the church has compromised with evolution, many church leaders don’t attack the evolutionary foundation of the humanist philosophy. Humanists don’t see the church as a threat to their anti-God religion.

But our museum will directly attack the foundation of humanism by exposing the problems with evolution and teaching the truth about creation. That’s why our ministry is seen as such a threat!

Please pray over the following request during the next few days …

  • Pray that the Lord would bless and sanctify all of the discussions and deliberations of the Board of Directors in their recent meeting, and that the plans and goals decided upon would be in the will and good pleasure of God.

  • Pray for Carl Kerby and the ministry relations team as they develop a new prayer program, which is planned to be introduced in early 2005. Among other things, we never want to lose our dependency upon the Lord nor see any degree of success as the product of our own doing. The goal is to see a minimum of 1,000 people willing to pray daily and fast once a month for this ministry to the end that hearts are changed and the world is impacted for the gospel.
