|If you have ever watched Glen Beck on TV you will see how the ignorance of liberalism is so clearly exposed. Liberals think they are brilliant but in reality, they do not know all that they think they do. Many conservative Christians have studied more about the founding of this nation than the liberals. The liberals have rarely read the original works of many of the founding fathers of this country, and therefore, they do not know how America was founded. |
I place myself in the "know" camp. I have recently spent hours studying how the nation began and what the expectations were of those who crafted our constitution. For example, the liberals think the phrase "separation of church and state" is in the constitution, and, many liberal teachers in universities tell the young students that it is! Thus, the students go out and quote the lies created by these professors.
Another example of liberal stupidity was given to me in the form of a newspaper column written by a former Baylor University history professor by the name of Ralph Lynn. In his 2006 newspaper column he wrote how Christianity thwarted science and was narrow minded when it came to the expansion of the field of science.
Lynn then went on and praised the development of science by the Greeks and Romans. He argued that it was Christianity that slowed the scientific process that has so benefited mankind. Again, Lynn is ignorant. He failed to point out that it was Catholic "Christendom" that tried to blunt the exploration and develop of science. It was not biblical Christianity, nor was it the influence of true, strong Protestant Christianity that was the culprit in setting science back. In fact, it was just the opposite. Biblical Christianity, and its logical development of thinking, caused science to flourish.
This fact is brought to light by the writings of Francis Schaeffer and also by David Noebel in his well-documented book "Understanding the Times." The Catholic Church was backward in its attitude to science. But it was men like Isaac Watts, who were influenced by the Bible, who led the way in the scientific method and changed attitudes about true science, physics, and biology.
No people carried science forward like the British. And they did so long before evolution began to be heard. The British Museum is a credit to the scientific method. The English scientists added tremendous amounts of knowledge to the fields of biology, chemistry, and physics. They cataloged animals, insects, birds, and fish, setting forward the understanding of God's creative world as no other people have ever done. The logical-ness of the Bible was the foundation of this work.
Millions of high school and college students are lied to every year in the classroom by teachers like Lynn. And the sad thing is that this is happening now all over in so-called Christian institutions.
A warning to those attending Christian academies: When Christian academies began, it was a pleasant change from what was happening in the "state and government" schools. But I am told that the direction of Christian academies is shifting. More and more are being secularized and dropping the standards that they once held on to. The curriculum they are using is becoming more secular in its emphasis. It will not be long before evolution will take hold of such institutions and Satan will win again in misleading our Christian youth.
