  • Belief in God, evolution are incompatible

  • Atheist wins again. Now that Republicans control both the Senate and House and even the governorship, Christians still can’t seem to win. The simple answer, atheists fight harder than complacent Christians.

    The National Center for Science Education seems to have great influence over our Legislature no matter which party is in control. First we had Senate Bill 1742 by Josh Brecheen (R-District 6). This bill was described as requiring every publicly funded Oklahoma school to teach the debate of creation vs. evolution. This bill died in committee on March 1, when a deadline for bills in the senate to be reported from their committees passed.
    We continue to see bills important to Christians die without receiving a hearing. Our last hope was HB 1551 whose original author was Sally Kern (R-Dist. 84 Oklahoma County).
    She was removed and replaced by Rep. Gus Blackwell (R-Dist. 61 the Panhandle). Blackwell, Kern and Bennett (R-Dist. 2 Sequoyah County) are listed as co-authors.
    The Oklahoma Senate Education Committee in the last meeting of this secession on Monday, April 2, did not consider the bill. This is the way it goes folks. What is amazing is 77 percent here in the United States claim to be Christians (source Wikipedia; Gallop Poll says 78 percent).
    Oklahoma is definitely a Christian believing state, population wise. Is our Legislature afraid they might upset the ACLU? There are other states which aren’t intimidated by the ACLU. Jesus said “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”
    Belief in God is incompatible with evolution. You cannot believe in God and evolution at the same time. That would be the true example of an oxymoron. If you are a Christian what has happened with our Legislature should concern you. Know who you vote for and not just because they have an R after their name. Ask them pertinent questions if you get the chance.
    For those who simply don’t know what to believe, there is new scientific information coming into the light almost daily which reveals Darwinism is a false doctrine.
    Check it out for yourselves.
    For a good start go here: http://www.earthage.org/ youngearthev/evidence_for_ a_young_earth.htm. Seek the truth. The anti-Christians (evolutionist) will push back harder than most Christians.
