CharismaNews, by SHAWN A. AKERS: Although the biblical worldview in America has dropped to about 6%, author and highly qualified science teacher, Ivan Rudolph, isn’t convinced that Americans have abandoned their faith completely. But they have lost their burning desire to read and put the Bible into action.
In other words, God hasn’t moved one bit. Man—including a great deal of the church—has, says Rudolph. Man chooses to believe his own theories, not those set down by God.
A case in point—evolution vs. creationism. Rudolph explores it in his new book, Your Origin and Destiny: Explore the Meaning of Life, Time and Creation, as well as the truth about the destiny of every man.
“The biblical worldview has been diminishing. It seems that they have lost a degree of confidence in the Bible,” Rudolph told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “They still believe in the Bible, just not all of it all of the time. And if you’re hesitant about sections of the Bible, your biblical worldview is going to be difficult to transmit to your kids. That’s sort of the issue.
“So, restoring Christian confidence that what the Bible says—when you look at the original words, they tell us what the Bible really says—which is actually accurate, is probably my main reason for writing the book,” Rudolph says. “But also it is to reconcile between Christianity and science because the division should never have happened.
“Many Christians who didn’t go back to the Bible, who didn’t really study it, sort of launched an attack, and that’s caused the division,” he says. “I would love to see that division heal.”
“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Matthew 24:12.
