There is a proposal in Georgia to stop teaching “evolution” in schools. Many Bible-believing folks did not want evolution taught to their kids so they pressured curriculum designers to eliminate evolution.

I suppose there may be some Bible-believing folks who would be happy about this and think this is a giant leap forward for the Bible. I would disagree.

A typical response to something you don’t understand, or have a hard time dealing with, is to eliminate it–guaranteeing that no one learns. When Paul spoke on Mar’s Hill in Acts to the philosophers about all of their gods, he did not forbid their gods, he presented his God.

If Chrsitians ever hope to be taken seriously, we need to overcome our emotional response to anything that disagrees with us. If we hope to win the world to our view, we need to be ready always to answer any question of our faith; not eliminate questions.
