Darwin Sunday Versus Resurrection Sunday

It's hard to imagine, but hundreds of churches all over America reserved Sunday, February 12, to commemorate the work of Charles Darwin, and recommit themselves to spreading his message. Most of these churches were Unitarian or from mainline denominations whose attendance has been dropping for years; but even if the pastor is convinced of evolution, what would possess them to reserve time in their professedly Christian church to pay Darwin homage?

Don't they know that the reason Darwinism exists is to explain our existence without recourse to a supernatural God to whom we are accountable for our actions? Don't they know that "survival of the fittest" really means "extinction of the unfit," and that Darwin's cult of death has brought about unthinkable evil, from the holocaust to the modern-day abortion movement.

Thankfully, many more churches have set aside April 16 to commemorate Christ's resurrection from the dead in victory over death and the grave. The sovereign God had sent His only begotten Son to Earth, where He lived a sinless life for which no death penalty need be paid. Then, the Creator of life willingly gave His life in substitutionary atonement for our sins, thus satisfying God's holy justice. But then He rose in triumph from the grave offering us eternal life.

Of all Christians, creationist Christians best understand the implications surrounding the events of the cross and the tomb. May your Easter Sunday be a time of wondrous celebration and thankfulness.
