Forget the Chicken and the Egg

chickenI once wrote “Forget the chicken and the egg–which came first, the air or the lungs, the heart or the blood…male or the female, water or thirst, food or the stomach? Stop the confusion. Read Genesis again for the first time?” Frankten Goethe (presumably a believer in Darwinian evolution) stepped up to the plate and answered each question, ending with “science has evidence for its answers.”

Frankten believed that air came first. But if the air came first, where did it come from, and how was it that it had just the right amount of oxygen to sustain human life? While human lungs were evolving how did we breathe? Why did they evolve if life was already sustained without them?

Next he believed that our incredibly complex blood formed before the heart. Why did it do that, and how did it get around the body if there was no heart to pump it?

Frankten believed that male and female (for some reason) evolved at the same time, over time. They had to because they needed each other to survive, as did each of the millions of species, each of which have male and female. Why and how did evolution cause these millions of different species to evolve as male and female, each with different (but corresponding) reproductive parts? How did they reproduce while these parts were supposedly evolving?

waterNext he believed that water evolved before thirst. We know that we can’t live without water, so how did we (and the millions of animals) survive if we had no thirst?

Frankten also believed that food evolved before the stomach. So eggs, wheat, beef, cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes, apples, and a million and one other amazing foods evolved but we couldn’t eat anything because the stomach hadn’t evolved. Nor had our teeth, tongue, taste buds, epiglottis, esophagus, digestive juices, as well as small and large intestines.

I am amazed at how such an unthinking and unthinkable unproven and unprovable theory has survived for all these years, and that some have the gall to believe that it’s even slightly scientific.

Genesis simply and plainly tells us that all creation was brought into being at once by the hand of Almighty God. And that’s not a pleasant thought for sin-loving sinners.

What to do with Santa’s Stomach

stop signWhen I recently pulled up at a stop sign, I read it as the acronym: “STOP: Special Time Of Prayer.” So I decided from then then on to try and remember to have a special time of prayer for our nation every time I saw a stop sign. I not only need to pray for my nation, I need to be reminded to pray for my nation. It’s the same with Christmas. It’s a good reminder for me as to why I exist as a Christian and to what I should be doing. While some argue that Christmas is pagan, commercial, or even demonic, I use it (like the stop sign) as a reminder, that Jesus came into the world to save sinners, as well as a reminder to take every opportunity to preach the gospel to the lost.

They are the ones that need to hear its message.

I’m sure you know the story of the Good Samaritan. He’s the one that showed that he loved his neighbor as himself by tending to the needs of a stranger. His example should be the normal practice for human beings, but it’s not. This is evident when someone returns a wallet that is full of money or he gives his jacket to a homeless person on a cold day. Such kindness becomes instant and national news (especially around Christmas), and the fact that its newsworthy is a testimony of the rarity of human kindness. Continue Reading →

Six Ways to Get an Unspeakable Joy

thanks_comfort
The celebration of Thanksgiving was originally set aside as a day to thank God for His provision, but for many it’s become like the ever popular “moment of silence.” Years ago when there was a national tragedy, people didn’t become momentarily silent as a sign of respect. They prayed. That was the normal thing to do. It was also once normal to have God at the center of Thanksgiving. As Christians we should celebrate Thanksgiving every day, but for some a thankful heart can wane.

depressed_comfortRecently I received the following question from an Associate Pastor. He said, “The last couple of months something has happened to me on the inside. I don’t know what it is but I have lost all desire for ministry. I still pray daily and read the Word, but things of ministry have no interest to me. I just cannot seem to stir myself back up. Any advice you think may help?” Continue Reading →

Pope Abandons Creation. What Now?

According to a report by MSNBC’s Daniel Berger, Pope Francis broke with widely-accepted Catholic tradition on Monday, declaring the theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real, even going to so far as to state that when reading Genesis, we “run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so.” The highly publicized statement has made huge waves in the Christian community with responses flying on both ends of the spectrum.  As Creation believers, there has never been a more opportune moment to share the truth than now, when the entire world has it’s eyes turned this way. Below are a few responses  and resources we thought you might helpful as you do just that.  I pray they bless you and strengthen your resolve. Continue Reading →

Jesus is God

Not only did Jesus claim to be God, He proved it by pointing to the Old Testament to reveal that Moses and the prophets were actually writing about Him.
You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me (John 5:39).
Here are just two jaw-dropping examples taken from “Jesus Unmasked” (available at wretchedradio.com)

The Feast of Tabernacles
Feast of TabernaclesThis feast was established by God in @1425 BC (Leviticus 23:33-44). The Jews were to annually commemorate God’s faithfulness by re-enacting their living conditions during the wilderness wanderings. They were to live in a tabernacle (tent or “booth”) for a week and perform symbolic religious ceremonies.
Colossians 2:16, 17 tells us that this festival was actually a picture of Jesus. How?
The Living Water

Each morning of the feast, at the time of the sacrifice, the priests would draw water in a golden vessel from the Pool of Siloam and carry it to the temple to be poured out. This commemorated the water God gave the Jews in the wilderness and served as a symbol that when Messiah comes, the whole world will know God as “water covers the earth” (Is.11:9).

As the temple priests marched around the temple seven times, they would quote the prophet Isaiah.
Then you will say on that day,

“I will give thanks to You, O LORD;
For although You were angry with me,
Your anger is turned away,
And You comfort me.
“Behold, God is my salvation,
I will trust and not be afraid;
For the LORD GOD is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation.”
Therefore you will joyously draw water
From the springs of salvation (Is. 12:1-3). Continue Reading →
