During the past 40 years Americans has turned unto secular values promoted by the humanist movement. Christianity has been stigmatized by the blatant rejection of Christ Jesus in public schools, and other governmental institutions. As a result, we have an epidemic drug problem, kids running round having machine gun fights; to make it short, all elements of our society regarding the youth has increased negatively; America is moving upside down. Humanist call this personal freedom. I love and work to defend personal liberties, but when innocent people are hurt increasingly, than I resort to the saying by my elementary school principal that “my rights end where the other fellows nose begin.”
Now, the youth see mostly that the Christian faith is a farce because of the emphazise on “show me” the material alone with the anti-Christian movement. I am working to evangelize the technological thinkers who has accepted science for their religion. The only thing is our scientific role models are just as lost as any other when taken out of their element. Jesus, the Son of God, is our humanity, and all other religions are only previewing Christianity. The saying of “try it; you will like it” applies at present in America when it comes to Christianity.
I am a science major with a B.S. in nuclear physics. I love science, but it does not encompass all of life; it does not give a reason why we exist or where we are going after death. It does not calm the masses and encourage patience. Scientist mostly ignores such questions. It’s like what I saw at a cementary gate, “from this point on you are on your own”.
As a matter of fact, what I saw in science was that science supports Christianity; we call it metaphysics, and as it reaches its optimum state we call it theology, the study of God. Man studies absolutes which later becomes a precept of a new concept that is held temporary as an absolute as we progress in knowledge of ourselves and our environment, the universe.
One of our fathers of modern physics, Albert Einstein, stated that religion is lame without the support of science. I hold this to be true when it comes to the masses, but an individual can reach a heavenly state thru the love of Christ Jesus without any scientific knowledge. The Word of God is sufficient, but it sure helps if science confirms some foundamental truths within the masses.
If we should review scientific principles and relate them to God, than I am sure that many youths shall come forth into the light; instead of accepting science as their religion.
New International Version (NIV)
20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
“Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
