I am one of the “46 percent of Americans who refuse to accept the truth” of science as columnist Ann McFeatters wrote of those who believe that the God of the Bible created the world. McFeatters basically ridicules people of faith and the U.S. education system for failing to teach children that evolution is the gospel truth.
Yes, there is much discussion about the origin of the world. The article was certainly biased toward science, wrapped heavily with politics, and totally distorted about Mike Huckabee and many millions like him regarding their beliefs. Maybe McFeatters should answer the question God asked Job, “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the world?”
The biblical story of creation is based on the Holy Bible and God’s redemptive work for mankind. It starts with a belief of Jehovah God and that God purposefully spoke everything into existence in the creation. The intricate and magnificent features of the creation of the earth and mankind were just a start for an all-powerful God.
Through God’s grace, fallen man is redeemed by his faith in the sacrifice of Jesus on Calvary. The real question should be, where will you spend eternity when you die? The God who created the earth has prepared a place for us in heaven. I encourage you to read the Bible and accept His invitation for everlasting life.
