Last week we wrote Creationism Is Declining in Australia, in which we pointed out that the decline in Australian creationism coincided exactly with the departure from that country by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else:
But ol’ Hambo sees things differently. He just posted Ken Ham Returning to Australia to Speak, September 9, 2018 at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), Hambo’s creationist ministry. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
We’re increasingly seeing nations throughout the West slide rapidly into a secular, anti-God worldview that ignores God’s Word and instead encourages everyone to do what is right in their own eyes (i.e., moral relativism). This worldview exalts man as the authority, and when sinful man considers himself the authority, the result is the moral and spiritual decline we’re seeing in nations around the world, including increasingly in my home country of Australia.
Yes, it’s a tragedy. Especially the decline of creationism. Hambo says:
I’ve been saddened to read articles over the past number of months from Australian news sites reporting on radical changes taking place in that nation, largely due to the increased pushing of the LGBT agenda. [Huh?] Christians are being punished for holding to biblical views on marriage and gender, and even young children are being indoctrinated with an LGBT agenda. As with the rest of the West, Australia is headed for moral and spiritual chaos as the secular, humanistic religion takes hold of that nation. It’s a very small percentage of the population that is controlling the entire culture and forcibly trying to impose their anti-God worldview on people.
Hambo has identified the cause of the problem. It’s those LGBT people! For those who may not know what that is, Wikipedia will explain it to you — see LGBT. Hambo tells us:
In response, we’re ramping up our Australian ministry. We’re so thankful to have Josh Williamson, a talented speaker with a passion for evangelism and for the lost, directing Answers in Genesis–Australia and New Zealand. Josh not only speaks in churches across the continent, but he also leads street evangelism ministries, reaching people on the street with God’s Word, gospel booklets, and spiritual conversations.
In addition to Hambo’s street preacher, he’s even going further to rescue Australia. He announces:
I’m also coming to Australia very soon for two speaking events on Sunday, September 9, 2018. My first event is Sunday morning in North Buderim, Queensland, followed by an evening session the same day in Holland Park West, Queensland.
Ooooooooooooh! How exciting! Let’s read on:
We want even more Christians to recognize the importance of allowing Scripture to be the authority in all areas — including history and science.
Especially science! Another excerpt:
You see, the moral and societal decline we’re seeing across the West is a direct result of man making himself the authority, instead of seeing God’s Word as the authority in all areas. If man makes the rules, then why not redefine marriage, family, and gender? Why not allow anyone to live anyway they please?
Egad — we can’t let people live as they please! Here’s more
But we are not the ultimate authority — God and his Word are, and we need to allow his Word to shape our thinking and boldly share its truth with our dying culture.
The rest is information about Hambo’s appearances down under. You can click over to AIG if you want to learn about them.
So we’re all wondering — will Hambo be able to rescue Australia? It’s going to take more than a quick visit. He’ll have to leave the US and stay down there — permanently. Yes, that would be best. For both countries.
