Using the Technology of the Gecko

Posted on Apr 16, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

    A gecko is an amazing lizard that can stick to almost any surface, even when inverted on a mirrored ceiling. It is able to do this because of an amazing foot design. The ribbed pads on the bottom of the gecko’s feet are covered with very tiny hair like bristles called setae. These setae (1/10th mm long) are packed tightly together (three million per square inch or 5,000 per square millimeter), and each seta has about 400 to 1,000 branches that resemble tiny...

Scientific Laws and the Big Bang

Posted on Apr 11, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

Has Science and the Scientific Method been misused? The following is an excerpt taken from “Truth and Science – Is Real Science At Risk?” an article by Dr. Arv Edgeworth*.  Ponder the questions he poses at the end, and consider – are these viable questions that should be asked, and if they are being asked today or have been asked in the past? The Origin of Space, Time, Matter, and Energy The idea that space, time, matter, and energy have always existed has been pretty much...

The Bursting of Nothing

Posted on Apr 3, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  For 20 some years I believed in the evolutionary cosmology of the Big Bang, but today, after looking at the supposedly “scientific evidence,” I have rejected that cosmology and now believe 100% in the statement, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1). And because of my belief today, I have sometimes been mocked and ridiculed – under the guise of “science.” Secular cosmology today teaches: “The universe burst into something from...

Sacred Delight

  Last Sunday, a pastor friend shared these song lyrics by a vocal group named Sunday Drive. The lyrics were a great reminder of what Jesus Christ did upon the cross for each and every one of us that believe in Him. Have you come to the Savior in search of His forgiveness?   Sacred Delight   Did you smile when you made the moon And gave the sky its color? Did creation dance in rhythm to Your song of life, I wonder? Did the angels know you knew my name Did you tell...

Answered Prayers

  Last summer we took our 6 year old (at that time) grandson to a local Bible camp where we were teaching. We were blessed to be able to lead him to the Lord that week. We were also blessed to be there for his professing his faith through baptism just last month. Last Easter our oldest granddaughter (now 6 years old) gave her life to the Lord, and this past Sunday at her church she went forward requesting baptism. She will be baptized on Easter morning! This is...

Not Realizing What a Wonderful Possession We Have

Posted on Mar 7, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  A Pastor friend recently told me this story (my paraphrase): There once was a man named Waylon Pendergrass (a fictitious name not meant to incriminate any particular individual) who went out partying one evening and became rip-roaring drunk. In his drunken stupor, he decided to increase his income by committing burglary. Waylon drove around the town neighborhoods for quite some time until he finally came upon a house that was completely dark. Seeing no vehicle in the...

What is The Main Ingredient of WD-40?

Posted on Feb 19, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  I saw this on a friend’s Facebook page and found it interesting. I have been using this stuff for a long time; I really like to use it to clean the grease and oil off of my hands, but didn’t know it had so many other uses. Here is a condensed version of the article. What is The Main Ingredient of WD-40? Did you know? (Read to the end, to find out). “Water Displacement #40″ The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to...

  In 2002, the U.S. Office of Naval Research hired Dr. Anthony Brennan, a materials science and engineering professor at the University of Florida, to find new antifouling methods to reduce use of toxic antifouling paints and trim costs connected with dry dock and drag.1   Dr. Brennan felt that using an engineered topography could be a key to new antifouling technologies. While visiting the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in Oahu, Dr. Brennan and several co-workers...

Trying to Copy the Bombardier Beetle*

Posted on Feb 7, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  One of my favorite insects to talk about, to show God’s design in nature, is the bombardier beetle. Even though the bombardier beetle is only ½ to ¾ of an inch long (1.27 to 1.9 cm), it packs a powerful defense mechanism to protect itself from predators. When in danger, the bombardier beetle mixes different chemicals (hydrogen peroxide and hydroquinone) from different glands and then injects them into an explosion chamber containing mostly water. Within the explosion...

Does Yom Convey a 24 Hour Day in the Creation Account?

Posted on Jan 30, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  In the Bible, the Hebrew word for day is Yom. By looking up the word yom in a concordance you will see that it can have a variety of meanings:  a period of light as contrasted to night, a 24-hour period, time, a specific point of time, or a year.1 As I shared in my last blog (Compromising the Word of God) the meaning of the word yom or “day” is understood by its context. In the Genesis account of creation, God gave us parameters by defining the word day with ‘evening and...

Compromising the Word of God

Posted on Jan 22, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  In my last blog I showed that to understand all the different meanings of the word UP you needed to know the context, which is derived by the word or words before the word UP. If you take a word out of context, it will have a different meaning. In the Bible, the Hebrew word for day is Yom. In the creation account, Yom has been taken out of context by those believing that those days are not literal 24 hr. periods. In the Genesis account of creation it says “And the...

The Context of a Word

Posted on Jan 16, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  Below is something I found interesting on the internet years ago. Please read the conclusion at the end to see the point of my sharing this on a blog.   This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is ‘UP.’  It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v]. It’s easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why...
