WARNING: This Blog Is More Intense Than Usual

Last night we watched that documentary "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" that came out a year ago or so. The documentary begins by interviewing scientists who were fired and denied faculty rights (such as tenure, etc) because they merely mentioned Intelligent Design as an optional explanation for the origin of the world. The movie goes on to interview prominent scientists about Intelligent Design, whether it's a feasible explanation, etc. The movie continues a study into Hitler's regime and the connections it had to Darwinism. The documentary ends by calling for academic walls to be torn down, for freedom of speech to be defended, and for scientists and faculty to have the freedom to speak about Intelligent Design and to debate evolution.

After the movie, I had a lot to think about. I looked at the attack on creationism from a spiritual perspective. This is yet another area that Satan has taken control of. He has deceived men into taking control of science away from God. Men have the arrogance to take the credit of creation away from God and say to His face, "You didn't design any of this and furthermore You don't exist." Satan has turned God's remarkable creation against Him.

Every single thing God has created has been turned against Him: marriage has turned to divorce, relationship has turned to religion, and creation has turned to evolution. Indeed Satan is the Prince of this World.

But why does God allow it? Why does He not simply blow everyone away, show up, prove Himself, take control? Why does He continue to endure name-calling, false accusations, and denial of His existence? The answer is...


He endures because He loves us so much. He tarries for He does not "desire one to perish".

As you head into Easter, consider God's ultimate sacrifice of love (dying on the cross for sins), also consider the extent of God's love tested everyday as scientists steals credit for His creation, call Him names, and deny His existence. God's love extends everyday that He does not retalliate and instead waits for that last lost soul to turn to Him.

That is true love.
