"Gullible Christians"

Gullible Christians“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not to thine own understanding.” 
Proverbs 3:5


     A freshman at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26, 1997.  He was attempting to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment.  In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical “dihydrogen monoxide.”  And for plenty of good reasons, since it:

1.    Can cause excessive sweating and vomiting.
2.    It is a major component in acid rain.
3.    It can cause severe burns in its gaseous state.
4.    Accidental inhalation can kill you.
5.    It decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.
6.    It has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients.

     He asked 50 people if would support a ban of the chemical.  Forty-three said yes, six were undecided, and only one knew that the chemical was H20 (water).

     The title of his prize-winning project was, “How Gullible Are We?”  He feels the conclusion is obvious.

     As God's people, we dare not be gullible.  Our gullibility can put us into bad situations and bring shame to our Heavenly Father.  No matter how convincing the science can look, the Word of God is true and all else is false.  We must develop a deep faith in God's Word to survive this antichrist culture.  Science is daily working to persuade people into a godless philosophy.  Christian, don't be gullible!
