So we all have to take “those” classes, and while I am not attending a very liberal college, I am taking a class on medieval history… It hits topics that I am so glad I am learning! But it is also bending my views. Not at all have I lost faith in our Lord, but I begin to question things overall. Christianity piggy backed off of Zoroastrian beliefs from Persia… the first monotheistic religion… which split into Islamic and Christianity. Is that really where is spurred off from? Our bible says Adam and Eve, science says apes and monkeys… Egyptians and Buddhism. Can someone help me with the history of our religion? I have found knowing what I do up to this point helpful when others approach me intending on abusing my beliefs and expect me to be amazed when they say, “Your religion started with Islam, you know that right?” and I can refute back, “Actually Zoroastrianism.” … but while that shuts their trap, I don’t know what that actually and truly means for what we believe, guys! Educate me!

My sister is taking a World History class at our college and her professor is talking about the same things, which totally drives my sister crazy. But I digress.
As Christians, we are always going to be faced with people who are trying to prove that we are wrong, and many times history appears to prove us wrong. But, we have to remember that these history classes are not Bible-based; also, we have to be aware that though these classes are teaching some facts, history is biased by its writers and teachers.
As for the Islam thing, the Islamic religion came from Ishmael (Abraham’s son), and Abraham’s faith was much older than his son. But, you probably would do best not to argue the issue, but to simply state what you believe and move on.
Colossians 2:8 says: “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” – this is exactly what is happening in these classes. No matter what is taught or believed by the masses, we must hold strong to our beliefs.
I feel like I am babbling, but I hope I have said something that is helpful. If there are any specific questions that you have, feel free to ask! 🙂
