Your Opinion: Response invokes scripture

Dear Editor:

Have you ever thought about some of the worst intellectual matchups possible? For instance, what if we were to put Albert Einstein in a room with a first-grader to debate the theory of relativity? Or how about George Washington Carver versus a middle-schooler discussing biochemical engineering? It is foolish to think of putting these pairs together for these discussions. On the one hand you have what has been shown to be the ultimate expert in that field against an individual that has little to no knowledge of the subject.

Likewise when someone submits a letter to the News Tribune telling us in his opening statement, “Like a tenacious superbug that resists all efforts to eradicate it, the attempts of the religious right to fill the minds of our children with superstitious, pseudo-scientific ‘alternatives’ to the long-established theory of Darwinian Evolution persist,” is proving what the KJV Bible says about such individuals. Psalms 14:1 states in part, “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God. They are corrupt and have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” This individual has stated that “It is not irrational to believe that the world’s atmosphere will be 621 degrees F by the end of the century.”

Contrary to what these so called “enlightened” individuals think, there is a God and he has a Son that actually lived on this earth, died on a cross, and rose from the dead. He stated in John 14:6: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

We can’t teach Biblical principals in the government schools, but we can go to any of the prisons or county jails in Missouri and hold services where the Bible is preached and the individuals that are locked up, sometimes accept The Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Have you ever wondered if we wouldn’t have removed everything associated with God and his Son Jesus from the government schools, how many people would not have been murdered, raped, robbed, or unborn babies killed?

These “enlightened” individuals are still trying to do things their own way, thinking they know best, not only for themselves but for the rest of us also. Proverbs 16: 25 states, “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
