Don’t Get Discouraged!

“Be not weary in well doing” (2 Thessalonians 3:13). “Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse” (2 Timothy 3:13). “The battle is the Lord’s” (1 Samuel 17:47). Our job is to be faithful until the Lord takes us out of this world. When the events of this world start to get you discouraged, read Psalm 2. The Devil may have his plans, but God in Heaven will laugh! Though we have worked for many years to combat the lies of evolution and get the textbooks changed, all that we have done so far is to keep the subject before the people. There has been no visible effect on the textbooks. It is easy to get discouraged. It is our job, however, to do right; God will take it from there.

    Thank you Dr. Hovind for this message. Just yesterday I was going through a “what’s the use of doing all this” mood. It seems the more I defend the Bible the more people come at me. I guess it’s to be expected. It’s just that it is very tiring.
    But I wanted you to know that since 2002, when a Brother from church showed me your videos, I have been fighting the myth of evolution with as much fact and logic as faith and belief.
    God Bless you and thanks for your encouragement today.

    Thank you Dr. Hovind for your words of encouragment. I often think of Elijah, when he thought that he was the only one left who served the Lord. Praise God we KNOW that there are more than 7,000 who have not bowed their knees to Baal (or evolution). We are praying for you continually and look forward to your next post. – Amy 🙂

    In fact, textbooks are constantly changing. However, there are specific requirements for making the change. There must be experimental support that convinces the majority of scientists that the change is warranted. When CSE comes up with some experimental evidence to support the need to change the textbooks, they will be changed.

    Mr. Hovind,

    i hope to get a sincere answer from you.
    If you want to encourage people, why don’t you just show them that you are right?
    You could, for example answer the question people ask you in this blog.
    wouldn’t that be pretty convincing and strenghten their faith?

    If you believe that the bible is the unerring word of god, how do you reconcile the differing stories of Jesus’s life and death in the bible? How did the historical-critical approach to the bible affect your understanding of scripture? Why does god feel it was moral to kill the babies of the Egyptians but immoral to abort an American baby? Why does god allow the starvation death of one child every 5 seconds in the world on this very day? Have you ever read Bart Erhman? Have you ever read your bible in a non-devotional way? Have you ever read E.O. Wilson, Christopher Hitchens, Ernest Hemingway, or Charles Darwin. What about Jim Harrison? The most any educated person can say is that we know less and less about more and more. You seem to feel that all that is worth knowing was passed down to us from uneducated, fearful, and superstitious desert wanderers that lived in an unimportant backwater of the Roman Empire. The omniscient one who allegedly revealed this truth failed to inform the Chinese, Mayans, the Native Americans, and the Northern Europeans.

    Mr Hovind, I almost wish there really was an all-knowing god, so he could tell you that evolution is a pretty good description of how life has developed over the last 3 billion years here on Earth.

    What David said. Plus you are again equivocating the Theory of Evolution with anti-theism. You need to show why this equivocation is valid. Many Christians have no problems with the Theory of Evolution because it says nothing about religion.

    Here, here! Well said. I and others have repeatedly given reasons why Kent’s arguments don’t hold up to scrutiny. Unfortunately, Kent and Eric keep on repeating them without even acknowledging that the criticisms have been presented. In the arena of ideas, it is the ones that withstand criticism that survive. It is NOT the ones that are shouted the loudest.

    Kent, Eric. Respond to the criticisms of your arguments. Tell us why we are wrong. Engage in an honest debate. Most importantly, give us verifiable evidence to support your claims.

    Exactly right Dr. Hovind, we have to keep fighting and keep on believing even if nothing changes. Like Martin Luther before the Diet of Worms, “Here I stand, I can do no other.” Even if everyone goes back on the Lord and denies their faith, we have to keep going forward.Like the Russian guard who threw off his clothes to join the naked and dying Christians on the ice because as each one died he saw a hand come down from Heaven and put a crown on their heads. As he ran out to the ice to join them he said, “I want that crown.” Like Jesus said, “Hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.”
