Disappointed in Jones...
As a little kid, I remember the first time I saw an Indiana Jones movie. It's basic good vs evil plot line with historical allusions suited the public at that time. Luke and I just watched the latest IN Jones movie and I was quite disappointed with the world view agenda behind it. I'm not going to delve too far into this issue (I certainly don't have a PhD behind my name), but I think it's good practice to think through the information and media we take in instead of chugging it all down without thought. We can't underestimate an idea given to a generation of over-accepting minds; the theory of evolution has only been on the scene about 150 years and it has changed our culture and the way people view God dramatically. Darwin's theory has started to cause nervous chuckles down the halls of academia as more and more information about our world rolls in...not that we would know that since we're all supposed to accept it as fact regardless. The idea that only people of various religious beliefs reject evolutional theory is dead wrong too. Bright minds of our time that claim no faith are starting to throw out other theories to our existence...because what we see when we look at the world is something thoughtfully designed...by something. The newest Jones movie takes this idea and runs with it. The Mayans were ahead of their time in areas of agriculture etc...so the movie attributes it to something outside our world. If our degenerating planet is too young to handle how long it would take to get to the point we're at, the movie borrows years from another place. When evolution couldn't have made the simplest one celled organism with the years we presume possible on earth...the up and coming scientists shrug their shoulders and say maybe the first cells came from somewhere else. We look on mars, we check out the moon and love Star Wars. Bottom line, for some reason it's easier for the pride of some to swallow the idea that an extra terrestrial being or pure cold chance made them than it is to accept a loving creator that is still intimately involved with His creation. Why? 2 Timothy 4:3 TNIV For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear Isaiah 45:20 KJV Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save. Hebrews 7:19 KJV For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God. An
