WEB Notes: This article goes on to blame the churches and colleges for this. Of course that is part of the story, but not all of it. Every aspect in our world today is anti-God, everything. You mention “God” and people will look away for a brief moment as if you said something horrible. Mention “Jesus Christ” and people not only look away for a few moments they start shifting around in their seats, suddenly their hair needs fixed so they motion their hands around. Watch people if you are not sure what I am talking about. We have been conditioned with the notion that saying, “God” or “Christ” is worse than a bad word. We have been told to keep this talk to a minimum as it might offend someone. But hey, the homosexual crowd can prance across the stage at our children’s schools and that is A okay. Drag queens can read to our children in our tax funded libraries and not a word. After all, that is “diversity”. But you Mr. and Mrs. Christian. You go ahead and bottle up that Christian stuff because its offensive to the sinners you know.
Back to the article. Notice how they asked the question and that prompted only a 38% response of Americans believing God created us how we appear today. There are other polls asking do you believe in God and those are the numbers you commonly hear Christians tout. 85% of American’s are Christians. No they are not. When you start digging down their beliefs change dramatically. Some Christians believe in “God”, but they think we have gone through some evolution process highlighting their ignorance of the Bible. Instead of relying on our Father’s Word, they rely on mans. Foolishness, but what else do we expect at this hour?
In a permissive culture that is increasingly accommodated by the church rather than confronted and opposed by the church, this should probably come as no surprise. Gallup has revealed that the percentage of Americans believing that God created human beings in their present form (as in, not a ball of goo that miraculously morphed over time through scientifically unobservable and untestable “natural processes”) has dipped to a new low of just 38%.
This is the first time since 1982 — when Gallup began asking this question using this wording — that belief in God’s direct creation of man has not been the outright most-common response. Overall, roughly three-quarters of Americans believe God was involved in man’s creation — whether that be the creationist view based on the Bible or the view that God guided the evolutionary process, outlined by scientist Charles Darwin and others. Since 1982, agreement with the “secular” viewpoint, meaning humans evolved from lower life forms without any divine intervention, has doubled.
