Secularists Are Afraid for Children to Learn the Truth about Creation

When I announce on Facebook that I’ll be doing a session for children or teens, many of the atheists who follow me get upset. When I speak to kids, evolutionists fear that they will get exposed to creation apologetics teaching regarding the truth of Genesis and the lie of evolution.

Secularists fear when Answers in Genesis overcomes censorship and exposes school kids to evidence for creation and against evolution. You could even say these secularists throw tantrums when myself or our AiG scientists expose the lie of evolution and millions of years to the world and teach the truth of creation.

Christians are happy to teach children about the various views of origins, but many atheists want children taught naturalism to the exclusion of all other views. My kids know more about evolution than most evolutionists—we’re not afraid to teach them about how to understand different views.

Atheists are afraid for people to think critically about origins since people would then understand that evolution is a religion. Notice how insecure atheists are? They can’t have their belief critically analyzed, so they legislate to protect it in public schools. Atheists are so insecure that they don’t want anyone seeing nativity scenes, crosses, or any other Christian symbol for fear that people might start thinking for themselves.

Separation of Church and State?

The “separation of church and state” nonsense is nothing but a ruse by secularists to impose atheism on the education system and the culture.

Many secularists demand that no one acknowledge God in public places so they can impose their atheistic religion on the culture instead of allowing the free exercise of religion. The “separation of church and state” nonsense is nothing but a ruse by secularists to impose atheism on the education system and the culture. Where is the phrase “separation of church and state” in the First Amendment? Secularists need to actually read the First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Atheism Is a Blind Faith

Atheism is a faith that doesn’t make sense of the world and is not supported by observational science. It’s a blind-faith religion. For Christians, we believe “by faith,” yes, but it’s a faith that makes sense of what we observe and is confirmed by observational science. Those who reject creation are without excuse because God has made it evident to all that He created the universe and all life (Romans 1:20).

You can tell secularists are very religious because they make so many religious pronouncements, particularly regarding Christianity. If secularists didn’t have a religion, they wouldn’t care what Christians believed—but they’re obsessed with Christianity.

When you ask a secularist to list their evidence that the laws of nature arose by natural processes, they have no answer! These laws were created by God. Ask evolutionists for the best evidence for evolution—they'll give you some story and will usually point to speciation (which is not evolution!). Try to get a secularist to explain how life with its DNA could have arisen by natural processes—they'll give you some story, but they can’t explain it. Actually most evolutionists don’t really know why they believe what they do; they just regurgitate what they were indoctrinated in at school.

Do you notice how irrational, illogical, inconsistent, and emotional many secularists get on social media when confronted with God’s infallible Word? That’s because it’s a spiritual battle! How do we battle the secular humanist strongholds in our culture?

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:3–5)

We need to take every opportunity as Paul did in Ephesus (Ephesians 5:16) to battle the forces of evil that drag people to destruction—we need to redeem the time!

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
