Most people assume that Evolution is rooted in scientific fact while biblical Creationism is rooted in faith.
This is clearly the implication of the media reports following the latest Pew Research, “Nones on the Rise,” which shows a “steep decline” in the number of Protestants. Trying to spin this in such a way that the Christian faith appears culturally vital is a little like putting lipstick on a pig; but concluding that Christianity is losing and secularism is winning isn’t quite accurate either.
Now that the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life has documented the "nones" are the fastest-growing and now second-largest religious constituency in the United States, constituting one of every five Americans, who are they?
Life is short. Work hard, play hard, and love God with all your heart.

It’s common to find people and groups separating grace and truth, but it’s quite clear that Jesus came bringing both. In fact, keeping them together is one of the more important exercises for Christian life and thought. As Henry Cloud has written, truth without grace is just judgment. Conversely, grace without truth is license.
