Evolution Sunday ? We Think Not!

Creation Sunday: February 11, 2015

Charles Darwin—born more than two-hundred years ago on February 12th 1809… and yet the ripple effect of his poisonous ideas is still being felt across the globe. 2015 marks the tenth anniversary of  the institution of Evolution Sunday, an annual event celebrated on the Sunday closest to Darwin’s birthday.  The event was created by Michael Zimmerman who saw it as a way to convince Christians that Evolution didn’t have to conflict with Christianity—that the two could coexist in peace.

Just one year later, in 2006, a website went up with an open letter stating as much, prompting pastors, priests, and other clergy members to sign their names and show their agreement. To date, more than twelve thousand have signed the agreement.

The problem in all of this is that Zimmerman was an atheist.  One can safely conclude that maintaining the solid foundation of  Christian faith was never his intention.

Clearly a response was needed  and in 2011 pastor, author and creation speaker Rev. Tony Breedon initiated a biblical alternative, he called Creation Sundays. Backed by Answers in Genesis, The Mount St. Helens Creation Center, and dozens of other Creation ministries, the annual event is growing in popularity and will continue to do so as long as Christians continue to spread the word.

If you’ve ever questioned why this matters to you, then simply read this quote by well-known atheist, Frank Zindler, shared on CreationSundays.com.

“The most devastating thing though that biology did to Christianity was the discovery of biological evolution. Now that we know that Adam and Eve never were real people the central myth of Christianity is destroyed. If there never was an Adam and Eve, there never was an original sin. If there never was an original sin, there is no need of salvation. If there is no need of salvation, there is no need of a Saviour. And I submit that puts Jesus, historical or otherwise, into the ranks of the unemployed. I think that evolution is absolutely the death knell of Christianity.”

Darwin effect coverA doctor in the Auschwitz camp, Dr. Miklos Nyiszli, wrote that Nazi doctors hoped studying twins would solve the problem of faster reproduction of superior races by advancing “one step in the search to unlock the secret of multiplying the race of superior beings. Nazis hoped to have each German mother bear as many twins as possible!

Creation EvolutionThis controversy can’t be solved by merely listing both views of the facts. Extremely intelligent and knowledgeable scientists in both camps show that it can’t just be about facts. Discover what makes the difference!

The Lie 25th anniversary cover by Ken HamIn 1987 Ken Ham wrote what would become a prophetic warning to the Church about the destructive effects of compromise with evolutionary ideas, and how this compromise undermines Scriptural authority and erodes Christian confidence in the infallibility of God’s Word. Today we have Christians not only confused when it comes to Genesis and age of the earth, but even the reality of Hell, Adam as a real person, and Christ’s own words about creation, marriage and more are being debated in the pulpits across the world. In this special revised and updated edition, Ken Ham again takes the lead in pointing out the looming precipice the Church is rushing towards, how evolution and/or millions of years, is driving away young people of the faith, and the biblical solution that can change it!

“Powerful, insightful, and eye-opening.” — Ken Ham “Fascinating, Absolutely excellent.” — Rand Alcorn “Excellent, Superbly done.” — Phil Johnson Hear expert testimony from leading evolutionary scientists at some of the world’s top universities. Watch as they present their most compelling evidence for Darwinian evolution. Their answers will amaze you. Your faith will be wonderfully affirmed!

Ultimate Proof smHave you ever had trouble defending the Bible to Atheists or Skeptics? Have you wished that your Biblical education was stronger so you could refute the untruths that Evolutionists claim to be fact? This book is a complete guide to defending the Christian Faith. It emphasizes the defense of the Bible’s account of Creation in the book of Genesis and is built on techniques that have been developed over many years, and through many presentations.

One Race, One Blood: A Biblical Answer to RacismThe tragic legacy of Darwin’s controversial speculations on evolution has led to terrible consequences taken to the deadliest extremes. One Race One Blood reveals the origins of the horrors of discrimination, as well as the proof revealed in the Bible that God created only one race. Discover how Nazi Germany used evolutionary concepts to justify the extermination of “unfit” people groups such as Jews, Gypsies, and Slavs as well as the origins of people groups, the genetics of skin color, and what the Bible says about “interracial” marriage.
