QUESTION: Let me ask you, do you know what the four most important words in the Bible are....?
ANSWER: The four most important words in the Bible are the first four words of the Bible....“IN THE BEGINNING GOD....” (Gen.1:1)
Let me tell you:
• If you can get past the first four words of the Bible, then the rest is easy.
• If you can believe the first four words of the Bible, then the rest is easy.
On the other hand:
• If you accept a philosophy or a belief system that opposes the first four words of the Bible, then you might just as well throw the rest of the Bible away...If the first four words are not true, then none of the rest of it is true.
• If the first four words of the Bible have no meaning....then the rest of the Bible has no meaning.
Illustration....THROWING A BIBLE DOWN AND TRAMPLING ON IT:
Would any of you be offended today if I desecrated a Bible right here in front of you? Would you be angry with me if I spit on this book, tore it to pieces then trampled on it with my feet? Would you be offended if I stood in this pulpit and told you this book is nothing more than an ancient record of myth and legend and there is nothing sacred or true about it...It is a book of lies that needs to be eradicated from human society. We need to take the Bible off the book shelves, out of the libraries, out of all education institutions, and we need to have a massive book burning of these ridiculous and harmful books?
Would that offend any of you??
Let me tell you there is a philosophy today that does exactly that to the Bible. This philosophy has permeated every strata of human society:
• From the Sciences to the Arts
• From Religion to Education
• From the Media to the Museums
• From Philosophy to Theology
• From the Classroom to the Congress
• From Grammar schools to Governments
• This philosophy has become the “World-View” of the entire world.
• Our children are educated and immersed in it every day, and everywhere.
• Your own life and thinking has been shaped by it far more than you can possibly realize.
EX. One world renowned ecologist said at a national Sigma Xi lecture:
“Most enlightened persons now accept as a fact that everything in the cosmos—from heavenly bodies to human beings—has developed and continues to develop through evolutionary processes. The great religions of the West have come to accept a historical view of creation. Evolutionary concepts are applied also to social institutions and to the arts. Indeed, most political parties, as well as schools of theology, sociology, history, or arts, teach these concepts and make them the basis of their doctrines.” (H. Morris, THE LONG WAR AGAINST GOD—p.21)
