Being a Christian today takes a lot more faith than it did 500 years ago.

Science has opened up a world we never knew existed. We now know that we are not the center of the universe, and that the earth is round. That our Milky Way is just one out of billions in a universe that has no end. It has taken this Earth four billion-plus years to form, and we know that it isn't done yet.

Archaeologists have found what they say is where the origin of the human race began -- Africa -- dating back 14,000 years.

Right here, the American Indians dates back 10,000 years. The Catholic Church was the first church to spread its doctrine around the world, over 1,000 years ago, and the church has been battling science since Galileo to preserve that doctrine.

The Jewish faith is God's chosen faith, according to the Bible. All the writings about God, and Jesus are from the Jews. They wrote history back then. Not science. Just think what science is going to show us 100-plus years from now.

I'm afraid there will be an even greater test of the Christian faith at the end of those 100-plus years. But the one thing that won't change is how the Bible teaches us how to be good human beings. That doesn't take faith.
