    Good read, even this late. If I had to cut anything, I think it’d have to be loving your enemies. That’s hard stuff.

    Ummmm….all the killing, raping and pillage in the O.T. But there is redemptive value pointing to the glory of God and His justice when we understand it.

    But try reconciling that in 5 minutes!

    Not living by any scriptural principles is in effect cutting out scripture. However, I believe the most cut out portion of scripture is the record of creation in Genesis. Those who do not believe what God said He did in the 1st 11 chapters of Genesis would deny this. However in not believing that God did not do what he did in six literal days, undermines the whole Gospel. So in the name of being more enlightened than God, they add to Scripture their own ideas of millions of years and evolution. They do this in the name of science, however the science they are referring to is an historical interpretation of the Bible that has its roots in the denial of God. Real observational science confirms the the historical record of the Scriptures and confirms the references to science within them.

    The science referred to by those who hold to millions of years and evolution is wild speculative ideas, i.e.Science Fiction, that run contrary to real observational, repeatable science. They already believe in evolution and and will only accept ideas that seemingly support what they already believe.

    Jesus and others in the New Testament made constant reference to events within Genesis 1-11. The salvation gospel has its basis in the rebellion of Adam. Sin, death and suffering began with this event. If death and suffering occurred prior to the creation that was pronounced “very good”, by God, he must have missed something. The fossil record, which can be accounted for via Noah’s flood, contains bones that show death, suffering and disease. The Biblical account of the 1st death was of the animal slain to cover the nakedness of Adam and Eve.

    So, to give in in order to be accepted by secular humanists, the compromise of what God said He did undermines the rest of the gospel. Thus, by not accepting God at His Word in this area is actually a rejection of His power, and an undermining of the whole of Scripture.

    You can be a Christian and not believe in a literal creation, but you are also helping to destroy the faith or chance of faith of those who may be seeking truth and have it destroyed by the teaching of evolution. They recognize that evolution and the idea of millions of years are not compatible to Scripture. It is such a shame that many Christians do not recognize this.
