In the news recently, FOXNews ran a title “Hubble telescope spots complex organic molecules on surface of Pluto.” Here we go again — another deceptive title. How can a telescope that is orbiting the Earth see any organic molecules on what was once the furthest planet away from the sun? As you read the article, what you find is it appears Pluto is absorbing more ultraviolet light than expected. The article goes on to say this may be because of organic molecules on the service of Pluto.
Please excuse us if we’re a little quiet this week. We are a bit preoccupied filming a brand-new curriculum, “The Six Days of Genesis.” In this six-part series, Paul Taylor expounds upon days one through six of creation, giving powerful truths throughout.
The other day I got to talk to my father-in-law about life and death. He has a condition called myasthenia gravis. This disease makes his muscles weak and deteriorated and sometimes this causes them to give out totally. A few months ago he fell four times because his leg muscles would give out on him. I asked him if he was able to catch himself and he said it depends on if he falls backward or forward. As he smiled at me with his now slightly puffy face because of all the prednizone they are giving him he said, “If I fall backward I am like a bug that can not turn over.”
Part of being a fully devoted follower of Christ means that you are willing to tell others what you believe and why you believe it. Jesus Christ Himself commanded us to spread the Gospel.”Now if there is one thing I have learned over the years from spreading the Gospel and defending my faith, it is that people who love their sin more than God will do anything to reject the God of the Bible” (Mark 16:15). I have been reflecting on the different ways people go about doing this and have written down a few of their tactics.
Okay, I am not really great at using Twitter, but I had an interesting conversation this past Friday with a young lady named Paula that I thought I should share with you. It all started when I stated that “faith” is a foundation for reasoning, not the end of it. Well, don’t ever try to tell an atheist that statement unless you are ready for a tongue lashing; or in this case a twitter attack. Yes, I was up late and my wife wished I was in bed! Perhaps this will help someone else.
I am incredibly thrilled about the progress of the ministry lately. Suffice to say, the Lord is blessing. Our “Creation Today Show” is being seen by thousands across the internet each week; and viewers are more than enthusiastic about our monthly live question-and-answer webcasts. We’re reaching people; and that’s exciting!
Too many recent blogs about the writers’ difficulties make my walk with God look like a walk in the park. It just wouldn’t be right not to share these with you. I am not saying that I don’t have struggles, that I don’t face challenges. But when I compare my life and my circumstances to what others are going through—wow, have I got it made!
For fun the other day I twittered this question: How many questions will Science never answer?
