The Orlando nightclub shooting is very much on everyone’s mind. We know who did it, and we’re fairly certain why, but as with everything else, creationists may be confused. Fortunately, help is on the way!
Guidance has been posted at the personal blog of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. Hambo is famed for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG) and for the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum.
Ol’ Hambo has a long history of telling us that we can’t be moral — we have no reason even to want to be moral — unless we totally accept his creationist view of things — see Ken Ham: The Sole Source of Morality. So of course we’re interested in Hambo’s understanding of the recent incident in Orlando.
He has just written We Live in a Sad Fallen World. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us, and Hambo’s numerous scripture references omitted:
The horrific terrorist attack in Florida reveals the reality of our sin-cursed world, and our hearts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those who were killed or injured in the appalling attack.
That must be very comforting to the victims and their families. But we’re waiting for Hambo to explain why this atrocity happened. He says:
Though the terrorist will have to answer to God for his own murderous sins, we are all collectively to blame for the violence and suffering, since we sinned in Adam. The world is fallen — groaning because of the effects of sin.
We are all to blame — you too, dear reader. Let’s read on:
Now evolutionists believe death and suffering have happened over millions of years. But the Bible teaches that death is an enemy; an intrusion because of our sin. We live in a groaning world because of our sin, and this is why Jesus came to conquer death and offer the free gift of salvation.
That’s useful information. Hambo continues:
It’s not God’s fault there is terrorism and death — the groaning world is our fault; we sinned against a holy God and now it’s a fallen world. However, because of His infinite love for humans, God, in the person of His Son Jesus, stepped into history to save us from this fallen world caused by our sin.
Once again, Hambo says it’s our fault. Isn’t this wonderful? Here’s more:
People will not understand a loving God and all the death and suffering in the world until they acknowledge God’s holiness and our sin in Adam that resulted in death.
If we could get our hands on Adam, we’d strangle the creep! Then, using Hambo’s logic, we’d blame it on Adam.
Now let’s skip to the end, where Hambo gives us a tastefully appropriate promotion for his Ark replica:
That’s why we want everyone, from any culture and adhering to any belief, to come to the Ark Encounter to learn about the true history of the world, our sin problem, and the solution in Jesus Christ.
If you still don’t understand the Orlando shootings, you’d better make plans to visit Hambo’s theme park. That will straighten you out.
