A Battle to the Death for the Minds of Men

Creation Studies Institute Every so often Hollywood revives an old tried and true script formula. It usually has to do with the threat from parts unknown from a variety of villains ranging from the female deity of evolutionary theory, Mother Nature, to aliens from a galaxy far, far away. Sometimes it’s a disaster movie inspired by the pseudo-science of global warming such as “The Day After Tomorrow” or the horrendously bad remake of the 1951 classic sci-fi flick “The Day the Earth Stood Still” (at least bad enough to garner a nomination for the Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel from the aptly named alter ego of legitimately good (again by Hollyweird (sic) standards) awards venues, the Razzie Awards.

If it’s not some natural disaster coming to destroy the human race such as the attack of the killer meteor genre ala “Deep Impact” or “Armageddon,” it is some alien force, invading the earth for some nefarious purpose such as “Independence Day” or the more recent Hollywood offer, “Battle: Los Angeles.”

While the world, the flesh, and the Devil keep most of mankind distracted by Hollywood big screen blockbusters, the real enemy of men has been busy, working just under most radar, changing public opinion about what is right and what is wrong. That is why many people are not interested in, or even aware of, the real-life manmade disaster that is occurring every single day in public school rooms and institutions of higher learning throughout our own great nation and the world at large.

Human beings have been under attack from a world system devoid of true morality for decades. Some, including myself, would trace this plot to commit genocide on the human race all the way back to the Garden of Eden. That is where the wisdom of God and a personal relationship with our Creator was first rejected by man. It was there that true godliness and morality, based on the sanctity of human life created in the image of God for the glory of God, was exchanged for a lie. A deception, an ear-tickling half-truth couched in worldly wisdom. As deadly as any manmade or naturally occurring poison the universe has to offer.

This downfall was orchestrated by a creature possessed by a fallen angel. This same creature, Lucifer, had previously rebelled against the authority and wisdom of God, attempting to usurp God’s throne, saying to himself, “I will be like the Most High,” Isaiah 14:12-15. It was this creature who beguiled Eve with convincing lies, e.g. that the forbidden fruit was ‘desirable for gaining wisdom’ and ‘its consumption would make her and Adam Godlike,’ Gen. 3:6. This version of the “I’ll be worthwhile if_______” lie formed the basis for the Fall of man and the reason that everyone who is born into the human race is born a sinner in need of the Savior.
