London Church School Rejects Creationism as “Rubbish”

first_imgAccording to a news item on the Ekklesia website, a new Christian academy in London “which unlike many church schools will operate a truly inclusive admission’s policy” will not be teaching the Genesis account of a six-day creation, “because such a view is ‘rubbish’” according to an administrator.  The Oasis Trust runs educational projects for the government.  Rev. Steve Chalke, founding director of the Oasis Trust, was interviewed for Ekklesia.Asked whether the academy would advocate the teaching of creationism, which has been taught alongside scientific explanations of how the world came into being at other academies sponsored by Christian organisations, he said: “No.  We will develop an open and honest curriculum and we will not impose our views on anyone.    “My personal belief is that… those who wish to read into Genesis chapter one that God made the world in six days… are not being honest and scholarly.  It won’t be taught in the school because I think it’s rubbish.  It’s a bizarre thing to claim the Bible suggests that.  Genesis is saying that behind creation is a good God.”The trust’s charter also prohibits the school from proselytizing or “imposing their view of the world on anyone they work with.”  This article was found on a link from World Net Daily.Here is where some separation of church and state would do some good.  Wonder what the “reverend” Mr. Chalke does with the tablets of stone written with the finger of God that stated, For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. (Exodus 20:11).  Anyone who calls that rubbish had better be prepared to take up the issue with the Author.    This story illustrates that often the most vehement enemies of the Biblical account of creation are not the atheists and Darwinists, but liberal church leaders.  Loving the praise of men, and craving acceptance by the elitist academics, they would sooner call the Word of God “rubbish” than criticize just-so stories of the Darwin Party.  Keep your distance.  He did not send them, but they ran; He has not spoken to them, but they prophesied.  Read Jeremiah’s warning about what the Lord thinks of those who mock His word yet pretend to speak in His name.    Anyone surprised that this state-church academy values being “inclusive” over being faithful, and disparages evangelism?  The hypocrisy of their not “imposing their view of the world on anyone” is glaring.  You had better believe they are going to impose these views on their students: (1) Tolerate everyone except creationists, (2) Never ridicule anyone except those who believe the Bible at its word; those you can call “bizarre”, (3) Keep people from hearing the good news of the gospel, (4) Treat the word of God as rubbish, (5) Never impose your values on anyone, especially the belief that anything is right or wrong, true or false.  These values will be crammed down their impressionable little throats.    Ken Ham reports in his July newsletter (watch here for reprint) that while British churches are lamenting apathy and low attendance, creation ministries in the UK are on a roll, attracting enthusiastic crowds of people with lots of questions.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img
