Creation Studies Institute There are numerous promotions, political arguments, advertisements, and movements that invoke the name of Jesus Christ. They seem to want to probe the psyche of the Messiah, enlisting Him in any number of activities on their behalf. It appears they are fixated on dropping His name in support of their favorite particular haberdasher, political party, or mode of transportation. â€œWhat would Jesus wear?â€ â€œWould Jesus be for or against?â€ â€œWhat would Jesus Drive?â€ Even the redeemed have jumped on this bandwagon with the recent â€œWhat would Jesus doâ€ query.
I am not disturbed when I see people wanting to invoke the name of the Most High in their lives. I realize that most people want to be able to say, â€œI am doing what God wants me to do.â€ After all, one of the promises of God is found in this rhetorical question, If (or since) God be for us, who can be against us? Rom. 8:31. The question at hand is not merely a gimmick or technique to cause people to think more lucidly about a particular social or political position. It is not wrong to seek godly wisdom when making decisions. We should consider how much to spend on transportation, food, and shelter, etc. The problem stems from an lack of honest discussion concerning two extremely important, albeit antithetical, positions that are rooted in diametrically opposed worldviews, e.g. Evolutionism and Creationism.

That is the real issue at hand. Not, would Jesus be an evolutionist? Read More: http://www.creationstudies.org/Education/would_Jesus_be_an_evolutionist.html
