Letter: Are we really so wise?

Put our beliefs to the test

Wow! There have been two outspoken letters dumbing down the idea of having creationism along with evolutionism being alternative classes taught at school.

I’m saddened that our kids have been heavily influenced in the arena of evolution as a fact. I sure hope these two individuals won’t see the movie “God’s Not Dead,” because it might mess with their own belief systems.

This reminds me of a scripture in the Bible found in Romans 1:22. It states that “... professing to be wise, they became fools ...” I am troubled seeing our society headed toward a people who are so caught up in seeing ourselves as so wise we are becoming disillusioned in our own intellect. I also have to applaud the teenage girl who gave a very astute commentary in speaking out on the same sex marriage stance by Oregon. She exhibited a very brave and profound illustration of the open door policy of allowing moral decay in our society.

I choose to believe in the resurrection of Jesus as fact. There were more than 500 witnesses to attest to seeing him afterward. Instead of running scared or being hopeless after his death, his apostles became martyrs, except for John.

Why die for a lie? I would challenge anyone who believes in evolution or any other belief to put Jesus to the test. He was really who he said he was or he wasn’t. If he was who he said he was, then you need to check out what he said.
