I got this missive from Charlie Richardson…
“Some fundamentalist churches equate doctrinal non-conformity with “not walking with Christ.”
So for a lot of folks your idea of “evolving your interpretation” of Scripture, based on science, is anathema and the liberal slippery slope to hell.
I know this from firsthand experience.
of any sort is a big problem in general whether Christians do it, Muslims do it, or anyone else does it. A closed mind admits no light.
All Ken Ham has to do as you said, is to equate believing in evolution with all the ungodly things happening in the world, and losing faith/not walking with Christ, and he’s got ’em.
And you are absolutely correct about the backlash and damage that happens with young people when they begin to question what they are taught and compare an interlocking web of research and scientific exploration of our world.
Kids don’t like being lied to. The statistics for church attendance are showing the complete consequences of the abysmal strategy of Christians hiding their head in the sand about human origins, the age of the earth, and evolutionary theory.”
