Evolution and Racism


Modern liberal-thinking people frequently attempt to paint conservatives as "racist," usually without proof. Progressives have attempted to justify and legitimize virtually every sin in the Book from homosexuality to abortion, from adultery to drug abuse (legalizing marijuana), from no-fault divorce to gambling. But racism is one of the few evils that somehow they still oppose.

Yet almost invariably these same liberals believe in evolution, apparently unaware of the racist implications tied to the history of evolutionary belief. Below are quotations from well-known evolutionists of the past excerpted from an article entitled "The Ascent of Racism," by Paul G. Humber, Impact No. 164, 2/1987.

Sexual Morality & God's Plan for the Family

(This article is a sequel to our article on God's Plan for the Family. Please read that article before proceeding.)

Having a basic understanding of the marriage covenant, let us consider various specific forms of sexual immorality. This will increase our understanding and appreciation of that law and will show us how sexual immorality relates to the marriage law.

God's Plan for the Family

Introduction

Who can possibly doubt that sexual immorality is increasingly practiced and accepted in our society?

All you need to do is turn on your TV or read your paper and you know our society faces an epidemic of sexual immorality. Consider how this affects God's plan for the family.

The Importance of Voting in Elections

Consider the following quotations that explain our responsibility as voters to elect as our rulers people of morally upright character who respect God and His word.

George Washington, the Bible, Respect for God, and Religious Freedom

George Washington served eight years as the first President of the United States. He was the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, and chairman of the Constitutional Convention that composed the Constitution. He is often called the "Father of our country." Surely of all men he would have understood the views of the founding fathers about the relationship between government and the Bible and faith in God.

Founding Fathers, the Continental Congress, the Bible, Respect for God, and Religious Freedom

The Continental Congress served as the chief legislative body for the original American colonies throughout the Revolutionary War until the adoption of the Constitution. This spanned essentially from 1774 into 1789. If any group of men could be considered the "founding fathers" of our country, it would be this group. Many of them participated in writing the Constitution. If any men could ever have possessed a clear understanding of how the founding fathers viewed the Bible and respect for God, it would have been these men.

Consider the facts we here document about this Congress. When a person knows the truth about the views of the founding fathers of this country, who can seriously defend the view that they intended to write the Constitution in such a way as to remove the teachings of the Bible and the praise of God from all governmental and educational institutions?

Should Christians Vote and Express Their Views to Rulers?

Surely local churches should not endorse candidates, nor sponsor or finance their campaigns. And individual Christians should not become so involved in politics that they neglect other God-given duties. But should Christians refuse all involvement in any issues that surround modern politics and elections?

Consider some of the practices that government officials currently debate, legalize, or even finance with our taxes: abortion, gambling, divorce, pornography, homosexuality, contraceptives for unmarried teens, and "education" that justifies some or all of these. Should Christians, gospel preachers, and even churches speak out about such issues, or should we remain silent? If we do not speak out, how do we fulfill our God-given duty to preach the truth and rebuke error? See Revelation 3:19; Galatians 6:1,2; James 5:19,20; I Thessalonians 5:14; Ephesians 5:11; 2 Timothy 4:2-4.

Abortion #4: Why Do Mothers Obtain abortions?

The Bible teaches that abortion violates God's will. Defenders of abortion, however, usually try to open the door by emotional appeals to traumatic cases. If these exceptions are granted, they proceed to argue for abortion on demand.

A close examination of the reasons for abortion, however, will actually strengthen the general conclusion that abortion should be avoided. Consider the following reasons for abortion.

Conception Outside Wedlock
====================

Abortion defenders use rape and the mother's health to argue for lax abortion laws, but these cases are a microscopic proportion of all abortions.

Fact: More than 3/4 of all abortions occur because the mother is not married to the baby's father!

Technology to Help Clean up TV

For those of you who want help in cleaning up the filth on TV, I have two suggestions.

#1) TV Guardian eliminates most foul language. Advantages are that it works with most sources that give input to your TV (cable, DVD's, VHS, etc.). Also, it is a one-time purchase - no annual fees required after initial purchase. Disadvantages are that it only corrects language (not other forms of indecency), it only works for some programs (not all), it does not catch all bad words, and it will eliminate many religious words even when used properly (not just as profanity). However, there is some adjustment you can make for what is eliminated. Check for more information here:
