Jacob’s Story | Winter 2012
Thanks to generous donors like you, millions of people who are searching for truth are encountering the Creator through the outreach of Creation Today. Yet, like you, it’s the individual stories that truly encourage our hearts the most. Let me share one with you that just arrived on my desk.
Jacob, a 13-year-old boy from Missouri, had never questioned God’s existence. He had no reason to do so. His mother had modeled her faith in God for him.
Yet, in Jacob’s first year of middle school, his science teacher presented evolution as scientific fact. Worse, she ridiculed children who asked about creationism. Soon this teacher’s ‘facts’ became Jacob’s education. He writes, “My teacher told the whole class evolution was logical and true so we believed her.”
Jacob said, “A few months later, I realized I’d peeled away from Christ so I began searching for truth online. And that’s when I saw the Creation Today video on YouTube. As I watched, I learned my teacher’s ‘facts’ did not prove her theory. Thank you so much! I am now a strong believer in Christ!”
It’s likely you know someone like Jacob who slipped away from Christ because of a false belief. Since the Scopes Monkey Trial in 1925, most of America’s schoolchildren—even those raised in Godly homes—have been systematically indoctrinated in evolutionary philosophy. When you and I were in school, evolution was presented as theory but now this falsehood is taught as fact.
Creation Today exists to ensure the truth about God’s creation is heard. And we need your help. Would you consider making a financial gift to Creation Today to help us get the truth about creation to those in doubt?
As we read in the Scriptures, no matter what oppression arises in our culture, God has always made truth known through His people. For every Pharaoh, there was a Moses. For every Goliath, there was a David. For every Nebuchadnezzar, there was a Daniel. And for every falsehood taught in our children’s classrooms, there is a mightier God who rises up to ensure kids like Jacob hear the truth.
Like the legends of faith before us, would you consider allowing God to use you today? Would you take a moment right now to make a financial gift to Creation Today? The need is great right now. Kids like Jacob depend on our ministry. And we depend on you.

PS: You may remember what the Apostle John wrote in 3 John 4: “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” I know your heart is to see our nation’s children walking in Truth. And we can see that happen. We just need your help. Would you consider making a financial gift today?
