“I have become all things to people of all sorts, so that I might by all possible means save some.”—1 COR. 9:22.


1. What change has occurred in some areas in recent decades?

FOR thousands of years, the majority of people in the world seemed to have some form of religious belief. But in recent decades a remarkable change has taken place. More and more people do not view themselves as religious. In fact, in some countries the majority of the population describe themselves as not being religious. *—Matt. 24:12.
 Quoting: DGN

You can believe in God the Creator and evolution at the same time by stating that God created the mechanisms through which evolution occur.

The two are not mutually exclusive.

I got into a huge argument with one of my undergrad professors when I said this. He said that the theory of evolution by natural selection leaves no room for a creator. My response was that there is no way to rule out something which is infinitely beyond the grasp and reason of humans. You cannot rule out something which is unknown.

I say to you, evolution by natural selection is pretty ironclad. I also say that God, the watchmaker, is the source of these mechanisms.

Evolution is not a mechanism it's ascience fiction fantasy with zero fossil trails proving that which Darwin honestly admitted. So is natural selection, it doesn't exist, just words, no new species was ever created by a phantom of the imagination because a different one died off.
 Quoting: DGN

Every religion selects their own 'fittest' to survive. When you see the type of people those usually are, you stop believing. In God, in them.

Yes that's the intention behind the counterfeiter of religions. If you sorted thru a bag of iron pyrite coins you would eventually throw them all out never knowing there was a genuine gold coin of extreme value there for you.

"I solemnly charge you before God and Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his manifestation and his Kingdom: 2 Preach the word; be at it urgently in favorable times and difficult times; reprove, reprimand, exhort, with all patience and art of teaching. 3For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the wholesome teaching, but according to their own desires, they will surround themselves with teachers to have their ears tickled. 4 They will turn away from listening to the truth and give attention to false stories. 5 You, though, keep your senses in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelizer, fully accomplish your ministry." 2Ti4
