Too long, Christian clergy have let Creation scientists bear the resposibility for educating the church on the vital importance of the doctrine of Creation and its foundational basis for the Gospel. It was necessary for a time to allow Creation scientists to become the face of the Creation movement; we hoped that we could eliminate the religious objection our opponents had to a fair presentation of the origins issue in our schools. We may have stepped aside for a time for all of the right reasons, but in the meantime the Church has begun to see it more and more as a side issue.
I think it's high time we began teaching solid apologetics from our pulpits and Sunday school classrooms again. I think it's time to re-introduce the preachers and theologians back into the Creation controversy. Already, the opposition is marshalling our brethren against us. Clergymen are teaching their congregations that evolution is true and the Bible cannot be completely trusted!
But I think there are others out there, like me, who want to make a stand. Who want to make a difference.

, the Biblical Creationist response to atheist Dr Michael Zimmerman's pro-evolution Clergy Letter Project. Zimmerman's Clergy Letter features over 12,600 signatures from members of clergy who affirm evolution but say that the first 11 chapters of Genesis are mere "teaching stories" like Aesop's fables. CreationLetter.com gives clergy and concerned Christians a chance to add their signature to a letter that affirms the historical reliability of God's Word from the very first word.
I'd also like to invite you to be a part of the Operation: Wittenberg
campaign. We're challenging churches to post the first 11 chapters of Genesis to their front doors to make a stand for the Bible as our ultimate authority! More information is available at http://operationwittenberg.wordpress.com
