    Is Genesis History? – Encore Presentations This Thursday and Next Tuesday 

    If you saw “Is Genesis History?” last week, then chances are, you walked away from the theater as thrilled as we were to see biblical truth taught regarding Creation and a young Earth in such a spectacular way. Thanks to people like you, the movie was the #1 film in the U.S. on Thursday. The movie was such a success that two encore showings of the film have been granted: this Thursday and next Tuesday at 7:00 PM. Check http://isgenesishistory.com/theaters to see if a theater near you will be showing the film again. Read >>

    12-5-2016 In Times Of Trouble 

    Israel’s government and religious leaders said “to a tree, ‘You are my father,’ And to a stone, ‘You gave birth to me.’ For they have turned their back to Me, and not their face. But in the time of their trouble They will say, ‘Arise and save us.’ But where are your gods that you have made for yourselves? Let them arise, If they can save you in the time of your trouble; For according to the number of your cities Are your gods, O Judah” (Jeremiah 2:27-28 NKJV).  Today, the notion that we came from trees and rocks is called “Evolution.” Children are taught that Earth, and not God, is responsible for their lives.  But when trouble comes, no one cries out to dinosaurs or “Evolution” for help! The furious Smoky Mountains wildfires caused death and destruction, and thousands called out for God, not “Evolution!”

    Children need to be taught they are worth something 

    If you teach a child they’re no more than an evolved animal, then don’t be surprised when they act like nothing more than an animal.

    Children need to be taught they’re life is valuable. Children need to be taught they’re more than an animal. Children need to be taught they have a soul that distinguishes them from the animal world.

    When these things are taught, then, and only then can we expect them to see other people in the same light.

    Until then, children who continue to grow older (which is different from growing-up/maturing) in an amoral home, culture and society will do no more than what an animal naturally does…prey on the weak, take what can be taken, kill for the fun of it, and create offspring instead of a family.

    But perhaps, at the end of the day, acting like an animal is the right and natural thing to do. Because after all, “survival of the fittest” is what got people to where we are right?

    Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

    Helping Christian Public School Teachers “Be Ready” (Apologetics Press) 

    At a recent Apologetics Press speaking engagement, a Christian public school teacher related to me some distressing news about happenings at the elementary school where she teaches. She explained that reading is heavily emphasized, which is a good thing. However, because the students are being required to read so much material each month and take computer tests over the material they are reading, the students are running across more evolutionary propaganda in their school libraries: especially false teaching about dinosaurs, the evolutionary origin of mankind, and the Big Bang theory.  Read >>

    12-31-2015 Insane New Year 

    “The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God” (Psalm 9:17 NKJV)No one can question that Americans have forgotten God: Evolution has replaced “The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth” (Isaiah 40:28 NKJV); Affluence has replaced dependence upon “the LORD Almighty” (2 Corinthians 6:18 NKJV); Immorality and Indecency have replaced “the pure in heart, For they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8 NKJV); Illegal and Lawless behavior from top to bottom rules, and “sin is lawlessness” (1 John 3:4 NKJV). If the definition of “insanity” is “doing the same things over and over, but expecting a different result,” then many people are planning another “insane” year!  Live the same, vote the same, think the same, and there will be NO NEW YEAR!  “Turn us back to You, O LORD, and we will be restored; Renew our days as of old” (Lamentations 5:21 NKJV).

    9-30-2015 Waters of Mars 

    Once again, the headlines proclaim “Nasa scientists find evidence of flowing water on Mars.” “There is liquid water today on the surface of Mars,” Michael Meyer, the lead scientist on Nasa’s Mars exploration programme, told the Guardian (9/28/15). Satellite images of Mars only show streaks on its surface, which are assumed (without proof!) to be the result of water. But no water has yet been sighted! “Evolution” is always established by false headlines, not scientific facts! Evolutionists are desperate to find water because they falsely teach life evolved from water on the Earth! Whereas scientific facts prove “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1 NKJV). Strange, isn’t it, that water in space shows the possibility of life, but a fertilized egg in a mother’s womb doesn’t prove a live human?

    9-22-2015 Evolutionary Contradictions 

    Repeating a lie doesn’t make it true. “The prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the prophet, ‘Hear now, Hananiah, the LORD has not sent you, but you make this people trust in a lie’” (Jeremiah 28:15 NKJV). The false doctrine of “Evolution” causes people to exchange “the truth of God for the lie” and worship and serve “the creature rather than the Creator” (Romans 1:25 NKJV). There is no scientific fact to prove it, and it contradicts Scripture and scientific facts! God will reject the immoral and “whoever loves and practices a lie” (Revelation 22:15 NKJV). “Evolution” cannot account for: amazing design and detail; a human’s emotional heart; cell DNA; faith and hope; an eternal soul; or life, itself. It substitutes primordial goo for God; survival of the fittest for mercy; and outer comparisons for inner connections.

    8-28-2015 Only God Is 

    “By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth” (Psalm 33:6 NKJV). A short summary of the Creation found in Genesis chapters 1 & 2. Only God was “In the beginning” with power enough to bring all this into existence. “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Hebrews 11:3 NKJV). “For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast” (Psalm 33:9 NKJV). In Genesis 1, after the 10X “God said,” the entire world and its organizing rules, were brought into reality. Origin and Design did NOT come through the “god of Time,” a.k.a. “Evolution,” but only through the living God.

    Interesting quote for the day 

    When the topic of treating people like cattle comes up in the tense conversation between Alexander (the “time traveler”) and the “mentally higher evolved being” in the movie version of H.G. Wells’ story “The Time Traveler”, the “uber brained” individual responds with:

    Who are you to question 800,000 years of evolution?

    Indeed! If evolution is the “creator” of us all, who are any of us to question what evolution drives us to do, even when people/organizations such as “Planned Parenthood” treat slaughtered human beings like candidates for the meat market?

      Bro. DIck Sztanyo, in his book, “Graceful Reason,” chapter nine, underscores one of the greatest problems for evolutionists in sexual reproduction. If natural selection is true, and plants and animals adapt using the simplest methods, then where did sexual reproduction come from? Cell mitosis is one of the simplest methods of reproduction, yet sexual reproduction is very complex and fairly unreliable. If natural selection takes the easiest and best method, then where did sexual reproduction come from? IT CAME FROM GOD!

        Good point.

        I’ve often wondered what the odds would be that a compatible female and male “evolving” at the same time would be. If one evolved before the other it would die and fail to pass along its genes without being able to mate, and that would put mutation back in its place.

      And how much longer will God suffer us to exist?

      • Eugene Adkins 6:38 am on 2015-08-24 Permalink | Reply

        I know things are frustrating, and seemingly ever increasingly worse, but I’d say we’re still a ways off from the pre-flood days, and my prayer is that situations like the Planned Parenthood “revelation” will help people to see the blood on our hands and the need for the blood of Jesus to cover our sin. Evolution isn’t billions of years old, but it isn’t a new idea either.

    7-16-2015 Pluto Points to God 

    “Indeed My hand has laid the foundation of the earth, And My right hand has stretched out the heavens” (Isaiah 48:13 NKJV). This is impossible without God. The heavens are so stretched out, that the American spacecraft, New Horizons, the size of a baby grand piano, traveled 9 1/2 years, at 31,000 mph, for over 3 Billion miles to come within 7,700 miles of Pluto, the planet further est from the Sun in our Solar System. No “god” but God could have made Outer Space. God, not Evolution, made planets’ orbits so precise, the fly-by was possible. The “foundation of the earth” was revealed through Job: “He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing” (Job 26:7 NKJV). This, also, has been confirmed by astronauts and spacecraft in recent decades.

    Evolution, same-sex marriage, and self-defeating (Letter to editor) 

    With the recent Supreme Court decision and homosexual marriage legalization, I have noticed that many people speak of “equality” and “love,” words that are hedonistically defined.

    Justice Kennedy said that the self-defeating, non-perpetuating “fundamental right to marriage” decision was a matter of liberty. I wonder if those who support polygamy and polyandry will argue the same. You know they will! After all, there is no rational reason to prevent them from doing so, is there? It is just a matter of time if there is no reversal of the decision.

    Justices Scalia and Roberts spoke with great concern concerning the Constitution of this country. For good reason they did. What did the President of the United States say? He spoke favorably of the decision and completely supports this immoral behavior. There is no surprise in this, because this is a norm for liberal/progressive thinkers.

    If macro evolution is true (and it is not), then the homosexual community is a weak-link in the chain of human progress. Why? Because homosexuals cannot perpetuate their existence in their continuance of their immoral activities via procreation amongst themselves. They must use artificial means to do so. This failure to procreate means that, in time, the weak-link destroys itself.

    It is incontrovertible that homosexual behavior is immoral, just as it is incontrovertible that homosexual intimacy is hedonistic and self-defeating.

    6-18-2015 A “Myth-stake” ! 

    Paul left Timothy in Ephesus to “charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies” (1 Timothy 1:3-4 NKJV). A “fable” is a fictitious story which lacks facts to establish it. The Egyptian, Persian, Grecian, and Roman gods and goddesses were pure “mythology.” Aesop’s Fables, “Frozen,” Pinocchio, Superman, Santa Claus, Link, Lara Croft, Evolution and Climate Change are also “myths.” When children’s minds are filled and shaped by these “myths,” they can’t function well in the “real world.” God condemned false prophets who claimed “I have dreamed,” and “who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, as their fathers forgot My name for Baal” (Jeremiah 23:25-27 NKJV). The facts of God are crowded out by fantasies!

    6-9-2015 Are You Double-Tongued? 

    Many people praise God and curse mankind with the same tongue. “With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so” (James 3:9-10 NKJV). It is only because God, not Evolution, created us that humans should be treated with a dignity above animals. People who say, “Pets are humans, too” have elevated animals to having the image of God, and that is idolatry! They have “exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever” (Romans 1:25 NKJV). Because baptism washes away sins (Acts 22:16), it is not for animals!
