What happened to our culture when God and His Word were systematically removed and outlawed from the public forum? What happened when the God of the Bible was replaced with the god of humanism and the religion of science? In America and other Western nations, one result is obvious: families are in trouble.
Two exhibits at the Creation Museum, Graffiti Alley and Culture in Crisis, explain the relationship between belief in evolutionary ideas and the decline of the family. Graffiti Alley reminds guests that the modern world has progressively abandoned the Bible over the past century. When Christians began reinterpreting the Bible based on geologists’ claims that rock layers are millions of years old, they opened the door to skepticism of the Bible’s authority. Now the Bible has lost its place of authority in the hearts and minds of people.
Culture in Crisis shows museum visitors the sad result when the church compromised on the Bible’s history. Visitors will see a broken church in which a pastor is droning on about the way the Bible fits with modern evolution, while in the pews the parents are listening but the kids are goofing off. A wrecking ball labeled “Millions of Years” has smashed the church’s foundation, scattering bricks around it. The bricks are labeled with doctrines from Genesis, such as “Made in the Image of God.” Cracks from the destruction of the church’s foundation spread across the street to a modern home. Guests will be able to peek into the home and realize why young people no longer seem to care about the Christian values of their parents, as they grow callous to violent media, pornography, and abortion.
Hope is not lost, however; a Bible-believing paleontologist is busy repairing the foundation of the church. He represents the key to restoring the culture—Christians need to proclaim the authority of God’s Word from the very first verse!
