Opposing the Truth

It amazes me how hostile this world is to God. I know it shouldn’t, but it does.

If you’ve kept up with the news you’ve heard about the case in Dover, PA in which the school board had decided to present a small disclaimer during the teaching of evolution in science class. The disclaimer simply stated that evolution was a theory, not a fact and pointed the students to other resources including a book on Intelligent Design (ID).

Of course, a bunch of parents took the case to court and during re-elections a new school board was appointed that opposed the “mention” of ID. A court ruled it was unconstitutional and the board voted out the curriculum. Now the parents of Dover, PA can rest assured that their children won’t be exposed to the insidious idea that a loving Almighty God created us in his image but instead be taught (as fact) that we evolved from Apes.

But of course, we know this battle isn’t really about the merits of evolutionary theory. It’s about opposing God. God-haters have now found a way to publicize their opposition to Christianity through civil liberty cases in a nauseatingly liberal court system.

But the sad fact is that these people have no hope. They can kick God out of schools, strip his name from the Pledge of Allegiance, and even outlaw Christianity. But all of their opposition and seeming victories won’t change the one eternal truth. That Jesus is Lord.

“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phillipians 2:9-11
