The Council of Europe is contemplating a ban of creationism, because it “is not based on facts, does not use any scientific reasoning and its contents are pathetically inadequate for science classes.” and “The total rejection of science is definitely one of the most serious threats to human rights and civic rights.”
The whole report can be read here.
Of course, this is nothing more than the normal ad-hominem attacks that we have become used to, and is yet another institutionalized attack on Christianity. For now, the council has decided not to vote on the topic, but it is bound to rear its head again.
It is indeed sad to see that the secularization of Europe is nearly complete, and even sadder to see that the only religion really fighting that is Islam. Christianity seems to have crawled under a politically correct “seen-but-not-heard” rock all over Europe. What happened to the continent which gave us the great European theologians, those who gave us our Christian heritage? Where are the Christians? Why are they not visibly proclaiming the gospel?
Where are the Christian leaders?
The leaders of Europe must stand warned. And should the leadership of any country try to follow suit, contemplate the following:
Psa 2:1 Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain?
Psa 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his anointed, saying,
Psa 2:3 “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.”
Psa 2:4 He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision.
Psa 2:5 Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying,
Psa 2:6 “As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.”
Psa 2:7 I will tell of the decree: The LORD said to me, “You are my Son; today I have begotten you. Psa 2:8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession.
Psa 2:9 You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
Psa 2:10 Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth.
Psa 2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Psa 2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
Not only will God withdraw His favor from those leaders and countries who deny Him, but He will destroy them.
Make no mistake, banning creationism is an attack on the Creator. It has little to do with science, or the teaching of intelligent design. This is pure and simple intellectual arrogance stemming from atheistic presuppositions, as can be seen from the statement that “science” is the only hope for human and civic rights. In trying to ban the Creator, these hypocrites are doing exactly the opposite of what they claim to be protecting. What about the human and civic rights of those who believe in the Creator? Of course, that does not matter, they can be marginalized without recourse.
I continue to fear for the future of Europe. Secular humanism has taken over, and is ruling socially. In the not too distant future, it seems the Creator will be outlawed, and the fall will be complete.
