When I read Stephen Hawking’s article “Why God Did Not Create the Universe” (Wall Street Journal Sept. 4-5, 2010 P. W-3), I couldn’t help but laugh! I thought, ‘This guy teaches at Cambridge University? He can’t possibly really believe what he wrote here, can he? Does he really believe this entire complex universe and all the amazing life forms in it came about when nothing exploded in the big bang?’ (See I Tim. 6:10)
After finishing The Ultimate Proof by Dr. Jason Lisle, I ordered his new book Discerning Truth to see if it had some more good info about debating. You will not be disappointed as you learn to expose some of the major problems in evolutionary thinking. Discerning Truth takes you on a short but effective journey into the laws of logic.
It took me five minutes of coaxing my wife to get her to see the value of our family’s first RC helicopter for the kids. (When I say “kids.” I mean me.
Q: Wouldn’t the world be overpopulated if Adam and Eve had not sinned?
Brainwashing: Indoctrination into a new set of beliefs by use of force or deception.
During a Home School Family Camp this September, I had the opportunity to play paintball with the campers. After several rounds of capture the flag, team elimination and just plain fun, we ended the afternoon with a game called “Moose.” In Moose, two people are chosen to be “eternal” (they cannot be eliminated), and they have to take out all the other players before the game is over. It was fun when I was “eternal” because I knew that I could never be taken out. Even if the other player hit me, it didn’t matter—I was not going to stop until they were “dead.”
The article “Deceived by the Morpho-saurs” (July 31, 2010) in New Scientist magazine reveals several serious problems evolutionists have frequently overlooked. The author admits that the number of dinosaurs may be greatly exaggerated (I agree!) since some dinosaurs change shapes so radically as they grow that they now have different species names for the same dinosaur at different stages of its life. If they had only been found as fossils and not alive, no one would ever think the caterpillar and the butterfly were the same animal!
Have you ever had a conversation with an atheist that never seemed to get anywhere? How do you close the mouth of an unbeliever? To open their minds to see their own foolishness? Two months ago, Chad from Living Waters ministries had never considered the idea of challenging someone’s assumptions instead of challenging the evidence that they present. After watching the “Proving God” series on www.creationtoday.org, Chad got the book The Ultimate Proof by Dr. Jason Lisle and read it in one day! Within two months of studying how the atheist really thinks and what God says about that, Chad had an opportunity to put his study into practice on the streets against an atheist. By the end of the conversation, God had used Chad to “close the mouth” of the unbeliever and show him exactly what is necessary for salvation.
