Too Smart to Believe

From a Russian pastor who saw the fall of the Soviet Union:

“Growing up, we only had one Bible among a 600-person congregation. Sadly, after communism fell we got a number of people who got degrees in the U.S., came to Russia, and started to spread really weird stuff. Like, ‘I have a Ph.D.; why do you believe in a six-day creation?’ And when I try to speak to them, they say, ‘You don’t have a degree. You can’t speak.’”

“When I started to come to the U.S., I was really surprised to hear things like that. How can you be a Christian and not believe in a six-day creation? It doesn’t make sense at all. If God is great, He could create for one day! He chose six days, so why do they try to limit Him?”
