Cult of Evolutionists

In June’s eBlast, we focused in on the religion of atheism. The atheist (“a” = no; “theos” = God) is the man or woman who dogmatically proclaims that there is no God. The Bible tells us in Psalm 14:1 “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” It is interesting that the Bible proclaims the fool says in his heart; not his lips that there is no God. The atheist just reveals his immense ignorance when he opens his mouth!

Without exception, I have found that all atheists are evolutionists. The fallacy of evolution requires more faith to believe in it’s ludicrous premises than it does to believe in God. Evolution completely violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics; The Law of Entropy, which states that everything is moving from a state of order to disorder. Everything is wearing out. My blue jeans, my car, my fence, everything is wearing out. The earth is slowing down, the sun is burning out, stars are dying, etc. The theory of evolution (which is just that, a theory), diametrically opposes the Second Law of Thermodynamics and states that man is continuously evolving and getting better. Over the years, I have never once found an atheist who was not an evolutionist. Is it any wonder, for if he doesn’t believe in God, how can he believe in the intelligent design of all creation?

Evolution is a direct attack on the foundation of Christianity. The Bible tells us, if the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do. Evolution dogmatically proclaims that intelligent design had nothing to do with creation, only chance and circumstance. As we discussed in June’s eBlast, design requires a Designer. When I go to downtown Orlando and see all of the buildings, I don’t think, “Wow, through millions of years of time, chance, and succession, the winds swirled sand and metal particles all around just happened to form these incredible structures. That would be ludicrous! I immediately would think, “Wow, I wonder who made this?” If I had five rows of ten apples; each row perfectly lined-up on my front porch, I wouldn’t say, “Honey, come here, you won’t believe this! Over the night, a tremendous tornado must have ripped through an apple grove in the state of Washington, sucked these apples off the trees all the way up into the Jetstream, and then placed them right here in five perfect rows on our front porch.” No, my first thought would be, “I wonder who put these here?” Why, because design requires a designer. Likewise, God has put His eternal Godhead on display by the incredible ingenuity all around us. From the complexity of a simple cell to the incredible beauty of a butterfly, the magnitude of His ingenuity is staggering to say the least.

Often we hear of the “missing link”. Over the years, millions of fossil remains have been found. The missing link is a fossil that has been found that is in a transition period. For example, finding a fish with legs; a dolphin with legs, etc. Out of the millions of fossils that have been uncovered, NOT ONE fossil has ever been found to be in the transition form. The only problem with the missing link is that it’s missing! A cockroach is a cockroach, a dog a dog, a fish a fish.

Yes, but what about all of the transitional forms of humans that they’ve found? What about Cro-Magnon Man? What about Neanderthal Man? What about all the others? Consider the following:

Lucy: Nearly all experts agree that Lucy was a 3 foot tall chimpanzee.

Heidelberg Man: Built from a jawbone that was conceded by many to be quite human.

Nebraska Man: Scientifically built up from one tooth, later found to be the tooth of an extinct pig.

Piltdown Man: The jawbone turned out to belong to a modern ape.

Peking Man: Supposedly 500,000 years old, but all evidence has disappeared.

Neanderthal Man: The first Neanderthal remains were found in France in 1908. Considered to be ignorant, ape-like, stooped and knuckle-dragging, much of the evidence now suggests that Neanderthal was just as human as us, and his stooped appearance was because of arthritis and rickets.

New Guinea Man: Dates back to 1970. This Species has been found in the region just north of Australia.

Cro-Magnon Man: One of the earliest and best established fossils is at least equal in physique and brain capacity to modern man. Cro-Magnon man is indistinguishable from modern humans … so what’s the difference?

Modern Man: This genius thinks he evolved from a monkey.

Cult of Personalities: Oprah Winfrey

One would have to live in a cave to say they have never heard of Oprah Winfrey. There are many faces that Oprah wears:
  • Oprah the celebrated talk show host
  • Oprah the book club queen
  • Oprah the magazine maven
  • Oprah the philanthropist for her work in Africa
  • Oprah the actress
  • Oprah the financial supporter of President Barrack Hussein Obama
One would also be remiss to think that Oprah doesn’t carry a considerable amount of clout and persuasion among her many, many faithful followers. And her followers are diversefied; they are the rich and the not so rich, black and white, female and male, and (unfortunately) Christian and non-Christian alike. So our first question is whether this would earn Oprah and her new age protégés the title of “cult”. First and foremost, let’s examine the word ‘cult’ and its roots. The literal and traditional meaning of the word cult is derived from the Latin cultus, meaning “care” or “adoration.” Now ask yourself how people act when Oprah is around, on television or any of the many special appearances she makes. And how about her showing up for Barack Obama’s gathering in South Carolina? CNN.com’s own headline reads: “Thanks to Oprah, Obama camp claims biggest crowd yet”. So ask yourself if Oprah has the power to cause people to care for her to excess or even adore her. One can only answer a resounding “yes”.

The Church of Oprah:

Along these very same lines there is the largest “church” in the world. On March 3, 2008 this same “church” had an attendance of over 300,000! Recent numbers indicate the attendance is well over 2 million! On March the 17th of 2008 these people conducted their first mass trance.

Dont Drink The Kool-Aid: Oprah, Obama and The Occult

Some of their doctrine states:
  • There is no sin.
  • A slain Christ has no meaning.
  • The journey to the cross should be the last useless journey.
  • Do not make the pathetic error of ‘clinging to the old rugged cross’.
  • The “Name of Jesus Christ”, as such, is but a symbol. It is a symbol that is safely used as a replacement for the many names of all the gods to which you pray.
  • God is in everything.
  • The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself.
  • The oneness of the Creator and the creation is your wholeness, your sanity, and your limitless power.
  • The Atonement is the final lesson he [man] need learn, for it teaches him that, never having sinned, he has no need for salvation.
  • The era of the Single Savior is over.
Only two words can describe their doctrine: blasphemyheresy. This heretical church leaders name? None other than Oprah Winfrey who, years ago on public television, denied that Jesus Christ was the only way to heaven. Just recently Oprah has endorsed a book titled “The Secret” which is no secret at all but simply the same old new age philosophy. The queen of television is now using her impressive book club to propagate the works of yet another enlightened person named Eckhart Tolley. Eckhart’s latest work, titled “A Course In Miracles” is being used to promote the Church of Oprah and her latest sidekick. Remember this: if it’s new, it’s not true; if it’s true, it’s not new.

Watch Out For False Teachers

Or: How Cults Are Established

False Prophets Are The Founders Of Cults

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” Matthew 24:36 Jesus continuously warned His disciples that heretics would creep into the church; some intentionally to deceive and others unintentionally. Subsequently the Apostle Paul, John, Jude, and others warned the believers to be on their guard continually and “to earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” Jude 3. Many of us remember the tragedy of the Jim Jones cult which ended in over 900 people taking their own lives because of heresy. We remember the tragedy of the Branch Davidians in Waco Texas and their charismatic leader David Koresh who persuaded many to take their own lives. Yet in light of all these tragedies, believers and non-believers continually set dates with dire results and great casualties following in their wake. Many cults of today and of the past, started as a seemingly innocent study. Consider the following… Back in 1818, a Baptist preacher named William Miller predicted that Jesus would return in the year from March 21, 1843 to March 21, 1844. Miller interpreted Daniel 8:14’s 2,300 days as 2,300 years and came to the conclusion that this was clearly the time that Jesus would return. When his prediction did not materialize and Jesus did not return, he and his followers, known as the Millerites, set one final date of October 22, 1844 as the return of Jesus Christ. With great disappointment, when this date failed to occur, Miller confessed that he was wrong and should never had set any dates. Never-the-less, the damage had been done, and it set in motion the creation of numerous cults that would spin off of his erroneous teaching. One of the groups who tenaciously followed Miller’s teachings, were a husband and wife named James and Ellen White. When the Miller’s predictions failed to come to pass, the White’s proclaimed that Jesus did actually cleanse the sanctuary on October 22, 1844, but He cleansed it in heaven, not on the earth because men had not been keeping the Sabbath. This then began the Seventh Day Adventist movement. From there, a man named Charles Taze Russell studied with the Adventists but decided to break fellowship with them as he had a disagreement about the atonement of Christ. Russell then started his own group which became the Russellites, which then became the Jehovah Witnesses. Russell, whose parents were Presbyterian Congregationalists was terrified of the doctrine of hell, so he conveniently changed the doctrine to accommodate his own fears and belief. From the Jehovah Witnesses, over 9 different cults have emanated, such as the Christadelphians. When I was a new believer, I read a seemingly innocent prophecy ad in a local newspaper. I called the number, left my address, and they said that they would send me some additional information. They did send me the information, through a personal messenger with a personal visit. As I listened intently to them, their false doctrine began to surface in the visit, and they began to try to undermine my new faith. They informed me that hell did not exist; God was limited in what He could do; etc., etc. yet the Holy Spirit inside of me was screaming, “That’s not right!!!” I went to a pastor; he showed me their errors, and it set my life on a course to know THE BOOK and to be ready always to give an answer to every man (1 Peter 3:15). The bottom line is when we intentionally or unintentionally disobey or disregard Scripture; the consequences are serious, catastrophic and affect many! May you and I know GOD’s Word, defend GOD’s Word, and share GOD’s Word! “A little leaven leavens the whole lump.” (Galatians 5:9)
