I'm a believer
(Hastings, Michigan, USA)
I believe in God. I believe in evolution. I believe in Jesus. I believe in what he taught us. Love is the only answer. Perhaps one may say 'lying for Jesus' to get peoples attention in order to make a point. It is truly fascinating to study evolution, after all, it is how things got started. We can all coexist on this planet. Life had to start somewhere, from something. Natural selection does really happen. There is too much proof to deny it.
For someone to use the statement that one lies for Jesus however is absurd. The article does not state how people lie for Jesus. There is no point to it. Only references to creatures that lived long ago. Jesus came and was a teacher of the truth. His one rule that he left us was to treat others as we would have them treat us. What does this have to do with dinosaurs? It is quite obvious that they evolved, as did man.
You can not disprove creationism. So, therefore, using a label such as 'lying for Jesus' is slander in and of itself. It can and will offend people.
Although it is not tangible, love does exist. It can be felt, shared, received. It is a gift from it's creator, Almighty God. All evolution does is explain the tangible, the things we see and touch. It does nothing to explain where love comes from, or even its alter ego, hate.
Therefore, my dear evolutionist, how do you explain where these intangible things come from? Jesus would never have us lie for him. He was all about the truth.
