Another article from The Christian Post says:
A nearly-completed $27 million museum that will showcase the literal biblical account of creation has been drawing enough criticism to spur several opponents into slating protests against the museum on the day of its opening.Actually, Mr. Kagin, this "myth" IS true, and it IS literal. Sadly, though, many of the "educated humans" that fall into the Darwinian lie are much like the ones that the apostle Paul wrote about in 1st Corinthians 1:18-20:
Set to open on Memorial Day, the Creation Museum, built just outside Cincinnati, is trying to give an alternative to evolutionary models of science. Challengers are calling the museum “fantasy,” however, and have expressed fear that their children may be influenced by what the museum teaches.
"Many educated humans realize this is a myth," said Edwin Kagin, a Union attorney and the national legal director of American Atheists, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. "Myths aren't necessarily untrue, but they aren't literal, either."
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written:You see, many of these highly educated people are too smart sometimes for their own good. They don't understand how there can be an all-knowing, Almighty GOD who is in control of things (and lets us control some things), and who created all things. Because if that is true, then we're not at the top of the food chain, and there will be someone we will have to answer to someday.
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
But the line that really gets me is this one:
"My brothers and sisters in the faith who embrace [the creationist] understanding call into question the whole Christian concept," expressed the Rev. Mendle Adams, pastor of St. Peter's United Church of Christ in Cincinnati, according to the Enquirer. "They make us a laughingstock.”We Christians are already a laughingstock to non-believers. Those who do not know the LORD look at us and don't want anything to do with our faith. But, this quote is entirely indicative of the state of the United Churches of Christ (A name which they are not worthy to bear). From their website:
To say that a setting of the UCC (a local church, campus ministry etc.) is "Open and Affirming" means that it has publicly declared that "gay, lesbian, bisexual" (GLB) people (or those of all "sexual orientations") are welcome in its full life and ministry (e.g. membership, leadership, employment etc.) It bespeaks a spirit of hospitality and a willingness to live out that welcome in meaningful ways.In other words, "Hey, don't worry about what that old Bible says. We've got the new and improved version, without all that stuff about sin and repentance and holiness!" What was it that Paul said about loving the things of the world?
Besides, if there wasn't a literal Adam, then how do you explain these verses:
Romans 5:12--Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned. [How could there be "millions of years" of death, if death came by Adam's sin?]
1st Corinthians 15:21-22--For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.
Genesis 2:7--And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. ["GOD formed man from the dust of the ground." Not, "GOD formed monkeys from the dust of the ground", or, "GOD formed man from monkeys."]
The reason the Darwinians don't want you to take your kids to the Creation Museum is so that they don't learn the truth about how this universe was created. The Mammon-lovers don't want your kids to know how off-kilter many churches have become concerning creation. And Satan definitely doesn't want you to go.
