I am probably preaching to the choir here--more like preaching to myself--but I felt led to post this.

 

I have not tried to hide the fact that I love to watch wildlife programs on television, most of which come from a highly evolutionary perspective.  Almost every show mentions evolution or millions of years.  I reckon I'm so used to this that it no longer bothers me.

Well, a new trend (okay, there's nothing new under the sun) seems to be including local culture in wildlife programs.  Now this would be neat and very helpful, but they love to focus on religion.  We had to turn off two shows recently because in one the narrator visited a shaman and in the other they detailed the religious beliefs of three different tribes.  My mother could not tolerate the shows forcing heathen lies on the audience. 

Then the thought struck me: what is the theory of atheistic evolution?  In short, heathen lies. 

Why does it seem alright for one kind of lie to be preached incessantly while a different lie merits an immediate use of the mute button?  Of course, I don't think anyone should subject themselves to being taught false religions, but it made me see evolutionary teaching a different way.  Now I reckon it is up to me to act on the Spirit's leading and determine how much evolutionary paganism I'll subject myself to.  Will it be a mute button?  Or will I cut out offending programs?  Or will I continue to listen to whatever junk some producer wants to throw at me? 

 

Brethren, pray for me.

Thanks!  I already have the "Into the Amazon" DVDs, and they are as good as I hoped they would be (by the way, you might have noticed the blog post about these DVDs; that was posted by my brother).  I'll have to check into the other presentation, which also sounds neat.

I prefer tke KJV. But this is past week I saw this presented live at the AiG mega conference, Excellent.

And God Said: The Voice of Creation surveys the seven days of creation using the lens of Romans1:20 to view “God’s invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature” (NIV). The text of the presentation spans 19 books and 67 chapters of Scripture, pairing each day of the creation account with a corresponding biblical truth about the God who lights the world, feeds the birds of the air, and offers rest to the weary. Magnificent images of nature and original music complement the narrative, creating a vivid multimedia testimony to the majesty of the Creator.

The most useful skill we can ever have in life is the ability to measure everything by the Scriptures, which, David, appears to be something you do well.

Good points, brother Russell.  I don't suppose I can avoid all false teaching, just recognize that it is false.  The Bible is the greatest remedy for false teaching, so I just better indoctrinate myself before someone else does.

Like you, David, I love watching wildlife programs. I also take an avid interest in science programs dealing with the universe, the cosmos, atoms etc. And I can tell you that these as well are loaded with evolutionary speak.

My response to this is to take any evolutionary statement made as a challenge to determine on what basis that statement is made and see if I can classify it in terms of the type of fallacy it falls under and/or scrutinise in it in light of observational science so as to determine the degree of absurdity it falls under :)

The fact is evolutionary themes are everywhere, not just in the electronic media, but also in the print media, in churches and anywhere else you care to look. The pervasivness of this theory is such that if you are not alert to it you could subtely be indoctrinated and before you can say "Darwin" you would be talking and thinking like one! To keep myself attuned and alert, I take in heavy doses of creation articles and, most importantly, STUDY my Bible so that the Word of God keeps me focused on the Eternal Life to come.

Ronald,

 

Thanks for the links, as well!  Was unaware that there were Christian wildlife programs. . . .

Thank you, Ronald Thomas Ford.

There are a large number of wildlife programs with a Christian prospective.

http://www.answersingenesis.org/    and  http://www.icr.org/  for starters with many more.

The more a person views/reads the wrong things the more we lose the Truth.
