One in a series of letters to my son that I wrote to strengthen him as he began his high-school years
You are entering one of the most dangerous periods of your life. Your are touching 15 years of age. You have entered public high-school. You will be vigorously challenged about the truth of your origins.
Son, our ancestor Adam was created by Jesus (John 1:1-3). Jesus loves us and created a beautiful world (Genesis 1:31) for us. Adam sinned, giving Satan a foothold. We have all been born into that sin, doomed to die in a cursed world spinning out of control under Satan's rebellious leadership. But Jesus loves us! He gave his life (John 3:16) to redeem us from the enemy. Jesus paid a high price--for you and me. You can be sure he will return to take delivery of "the merchandise", just as he promises in Matthew 25:31.
Mainstream science and education in our world today denies the truth that I have just shared. Almost the entire science curriculum in schools today rests upon a foundation of lies and deceit. Teachers will tell you that you are not created by a loving God. Textbooks will deny the universal flood. You will not be told that you are a child of God having infinite value (I John 3:1), but rather that you are a bag of water and chemicals hardly worth the price of a Happy Meal™.
The opposition will be vigorous! "The devil prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour" (I Peter 5:8). Satan will do his best to tear away your hope of eternal life and turn you against the creator who loves you so much. People will argue; they will not accept your arguments in return. Your teachers will force you to memorize and regurgitate lies in order to pass your classes. You will be laughed at, argued with, derided, called a "fool", looked down upon, and much more.
Remember Jesus words from The Beatitudes:
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you." -- Matthew 5:11-12
Even the teachers in school who know the truth are not allowed to speak of it. Yes, your school actively suppresses truth. Mainstream science and education today has "exchanged the truth about God for a lie", just as the Apostle Paul predicts in Romans 1:25.
There is no conflict between creation and scientific investigation into what God has made. God built an excellent universe. He wants you to learn about it. But truth does not grow from falsehood. I promise you, the universe and our place in it make sense only when you ground your studies in the truth of how we came to be.
