Why are so many Christians so scared of the doctrine of creation?
An interesting by Joel Belz at World Magazine:
The big problem now, though, isn’t that those “bad” people out there—the academics, the scientists, the big media people, and the people who run national parks and museums—leave God out of the discussion. The big problem more and more is that those of us who profess to be believers have to such a large extent joined them in their silence. So theoretically, we are still creationists. But practically speaking, we don’t let our allegiance to that great truth affect us much in everyday life. We’ve become scared to talk out loud, at least in public company.
