Look closely at how this battle is portrayed. The humanists are seen as very clever. They have aimed their guns at the foundations of Christianity. They have attacked the authority of the Word of God. There is no doubt that they’ve been successful in undermining the Word of God in our Western culture. But how have they done this? They have directly attacked the foundational book of the Bible—Genesis....
Look at the castle diagram again and notice how the Christians usually fight the battle. They don’t really understand that their foundation is being shot out from under them. They know there’s a problem. Yes, they see the social ills and they’re concerned about the increasing problems of abortion, pornography, homosexual behavior and all the other evils. But they don’t realize that the change has occurred foundationally. Thus, they aim their guns at each other—or fire into nowhere—or shoot at their own foundation (when they believe in evolution and/or millions of years), or merely shoot at the issues.
This is a major problem in Christendom. Too many people concentrate solely on fighting the issues, when the issues are not the problem. They are simply the symptoms of the real problem.
I think that Ken Ham is quite correct in identifying the central issue as one of epistemology--the question of ultimate truth. He is also correct in assessing that most Christians do not really understand what is going on. By compromising with humanism many Christians destroy their own foundations.
