WHAT’S THE EVIDENCE?

Posted on Sep 27, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  Dave and Mary Jo Nutting (directors of AOI) taught me early on, when we joined this ministry, to recognize the pretty pictures, or what we call ARTWORK. We find these everywhere – school textbooks, media, scientific journals, and museums – and it is being shown and used as evidence for evolution. What we always teach in our seminars is ARTWORK is just someone’s personal idea of the evidence. Once we understand that, then we should ask, “What’s the Evidence?” ...

“Biblical Rains” Flooding in Colorado

Posted on Sep 16, 2013 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  The flooding in eastern Colorado these last few days certainly has been a devastating event as you likely saw on the news for days and days. The amount of rain there was close to 18-20 inches. That is a whole lot considering that it was somewhere close to the annual precipitation amount and over twice what our hometown in Grand Junction gets in a year! A lot of rain, but I was amused by the headline in USA Today: “‘Biblical’ Rains Flood...

Posted on Sep 4, 2013 in Marianis from the Front | 2 comments

  Here is a very interesting documentary (The History of The World in Two Hours) about the naturalistic view of how life has become the way it is today. Even if this is not what you believe, it is interesting and educational to be able to see their perspective in a full overview. Keep thinking as you watch. They will often say things as a matter of fact, because they believe that these various opinions have been validated. So be skeptical and question and research the...

The Mind Boggling Speed of the Human Brain

  In 1992 Gerald D. Fischbach wrote1: ‘the most complex structure in the known universe, complex enough to coordinate the fingers of a concert pianist or to create a three-dimensional landscape from light that falls on a two directional retina’ … ‘the current version [of the brain] is the result of millions of years of evolution. It is difficult to understand the brain because, unlike a computer, it was not built with specific purposes or principles of design in mind....

The Genesis Flood Updates

Posted on Aug 15, 2013 in Books and movies we like, Newsletter, Product Highlights | 0 comments

  The Genesis Flood was written in 1961 by Dr. Henry M. Morris and Dr. John Whitcomb and is truly a classic book. This book has had a huge impact in drawing Christians back to the Truth of the Bible with evidence derived, not only from the Biblical text itself, but also from the science of geology. However, much work has been done in the field of geology since that book was published. We have always wanted to see an update to that book. Finally, two different...

  FoxNews.com (July 18, 2013) reported on an archaeological discovery which once again supports the existence of the Biblical King David as well as the reliability of the Biblical record. In the very region where King David (Israel’s second king, 1010-970 BC) killed Goliath, a 10,000 plus square foot palace has been discovered. The palace is thought to be one of King David’s palaces and dates to the Biblical timeframe of his reign in Israel. Why is this discovery...

Looking for a Fight?

Posted on Jul 26, 2013 in Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  Put up your fists! Are you ready for a fight? Every day of a Christian’s life contains some conflict. It may be physical or psychological persecution, philosophical debate, or the everyday conflict of the spirit against the flesh; but we are always fighting something. Some people relish the thought of a debate, but few, if any, truly enjoy being “on guard” all of the time. In reality though, isn’t that what we are called to do? 1 Peter 3:14-15a says “But even if you...

Why Doesn’t God . . . ?

Posted on Jul 23, 2013 in Nuttings from the Front | 2 comments

  Atheists and agnostics contended with my blog, which honored God for clearing the smoke from the forest fire when we prayed. They asked why this God is interested in the smoke, but doesn’t seem to care enough to end poverty, disease, and hunger. To some of the committed atheists who I hear from, it becomes one excuse to claim that God doesn’t exist. There is a powerful concept that atheists have totally missed: God does care. Actually, God really showed that he cares...

Copying to Prevent ‘Copying’

Posted on Jul 12, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  How do you prevent counterfeiters from copying money, drugs, designer clothes and accessories, etc.? Some engineers are turning to the amazing wing of the South American Blue Morpho butterfly for a solution. The Blue Morpho’s brilliant wing color isn’t due to pigment. Instead of pigments, the butterfly’s wings have complicated scales with very tiny holes that reflect different colors or wavelengths, producing iridescent, shining blue and greens. The Nanotech...
