Copyright 1992 by Mark Isaak. [Further details at end of posting.] What Inerrists Believe by Mark Isaak The secular scientists say it's apparent That mankind evolved up from goo, But since we all know that the Bible's inerrant, It's obvious this can't be true. The scholars will tell you until you grow weary The evidence things all evolved, But ultimately this is only a theory; They don't have the issue resolved. The paleontologist experts have stated There's fossils they still cannot find, And though some new species have been generated, We've never yet seen a new "kind." The chemicals making you all fit together In very well ordered array; It's very instructive to ask yourself whether Pure chance could have made you that way, Especially since most mutations exhibit A trend to destroy and degrade, And laws about thermodynamics prohibit That anything new can be made. Disciples of Darwin should be much embarrassed For touting ideas so naive. For I am an Orthodox Bible Inerrist, And that's what Inerrists believe. The discourse of science is filled with correction And wrangling and change and debate. Creation, however, is timeless perfection-- A theory which none can negate. Geologists, using potassium-argon, Date granite four billion years old; Since laymen, however, can't follow their jargon, We can't say their findings will hold. For Genesis says that the Earth's rather youthful And once by a flood was immersed; If Genesis says it, we know that it's truthful; The Biblical facts must come first. At this, evolutionists like to assail ya With questions they think you don't know, Like, "How did the kangaroos get to Australia?" And, "Where did the water all go?" Divine intervention provides explanation. Yes, all things are easy to Him. God might have assembled the whole of creation Last Thursday, if that was His whim. To charge God with impotence is the unfairest Of charges which I can conceive. For I am an Orthodox Bible Inerrist, And that's what Inerrists believe. The proof of inerrancy has a foundation More basic than tables and charts. It has irrefutable verification-- The faith which we have in our hearts. The Bible has governed my life, so I know it Is trustworthy all the way through. It works for my spirituality, so it Must be universally true. But then so-called experts ignore what I witness; It rivals their kind of research. By this, they implicitly charge with unfitness Myself and my friends and my church. These scientists make accusations befitting A goal of dissension and strife; To grant evolution is same as admitting That Satan's controlling your life. Can we abide this atheistic invention Equating a monkey with Man? Our duty enjoins us to show our dissension And thwart it wherever we can. In textbooks and classrooms, our foes should be harassed Until we can get them to leave. For I am an Orthodox Bible Inerrist, And that's what Inerrists believe. I'm criticized often for not really knowing Much science, which I will concede-- But only in subjects which merit foregoing; I have all the facts that I need. I've listened to Morris and Gish as they lecture; I watch Reverend Pat on TV. Since they've pointed out life's divine architecture, It sure looks created to me. A PhD isn't sufficient credential For minds which are closed to the light. An oath that the Bible can't err is essential To prove you accept what is right. We must above all fight heretical preaching Which sanctions a doctrine so loose. Who treats revelation as fable is teaching A practice of Bible misuse. It's hubris to think that, by studying science, God's mysteries all can be know. One finds revelation through total compliance To Orthodox clergy alone. Such faithfulness, our leaders say, is the rarest Fulfillment a man can achieve, And I am an Orthodox Bible Inerrist, And that's what Inerrists believe. Copyright 1992 by Mark Isaak.
