“Where is the one who is wise?
Where is the scribe?
Where is the debater of this age?
Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.
For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”
1 Corinthians 1:20-24
I have always been quite the debater. Since before I could speak, I debated with my parents. By middle school, I excelled in mock trial. In high school, I regularly went to state and won top speaker awards for team policy debate. Before coming to faith in Jesus Christ, I got a rush out of debating Christians about the foolishness of their faith. Belief in an unseen God, belief in creation as a worldview seemed beyond any sense of reason to me.
So, last night I was thrilled to be able to watch live the battle of the world views as Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis took on Bill Nye (“The Science Guy”) on the topic of the origin of the universe.
I encourage everyone, mature believing creationists and evolutionists alike, to check it out.
You can watch the debate here.
Please join me in praying for Bill Nye to come to faith in Jesus Christ, for the many people who saw the debate to seek the truth with their whole hearts and for the Answers in Genesis ministry.
Did you see the debate? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please share them in the comments.
