Study with Intent to Obey

Study with Intent to Obey

Posted on Feb 9, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Recently I was listening to a recorded teaching by Dwight Pryor (jcstudies.org). In the course of the teaching, Dwight mentioned that “Greeks” (Gentiles, western thinkers) study the Word of God for understanding – Jews study the Word to revere. In fact, many ancient rabbis taught that the highest form of worship was to study the Word with the intent to obey. This is not new to me, but it got me thinking again about my own study of God’s Word. Why am I reading the...

Put on Your Own Mask First

Put on Your Own Mask First

Posted on Jan 10, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

    On a recent flight, the flight attendant went through the “safety talk.” You know the part about “If there is a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will drop from the compartment above you. Pull down on the bag, secure the mask over your nose and mouth, and breathe normally. . . . If you are travelling with a small child or someone who needs assistance, secure your own mask first, before helping them.” Wait a minute! Secure your own mask first? How...

Stars

On a clear night, an unaided observer can see somewhere around 2000 stars.  With a telescope multitudes more become visible.  How many are there in all?  No one really knows, and yet the Bible records God’s promise to Abraham thousands of years ago:  “In blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is upon the sea shore” (Gen. 22:17).  Just as no man could ever count the grains of sand on the sea...

The Arrogance of Man

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

What arrogant creatures we human beings are!  We think we know so much, and that given enough time, we can solve all our problems by science and education.  Yet in reality, how frail and insignificant we are compared to our great Creator. Remember the story of Job?  He and his friends tried and tried to understand his suffering.  Finally, after they had failed to come to a satisfactory explanation through their human reasoning, God answered Job out of the storm with a...

Gems From Genesis – Are the Days in Genesis 1 Really Days?

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

My first year of college, I went to a liberal “Christian” college.  I remember being taught that the days of creation were not “real” days, but were periods of time, millions of years long and were representative of the long ages of evolutionary history.  This is a common belief in our world today.  However, I believe that there are many reasons to reject this “Day-Age Theory” and to confidently affirm the literal accuracy of the Creation account in Genesis. First, God...

False Gods Will Perish

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

  “The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth and from under these heavens.” (Jeremiah 10:11) I often find myself thinking about Jer.10:11 as I consider the importance and the seriousness of the creation message. The people of Jeremiah’s day were worshipping idols of wood, silver, and gold which they made with their own hands. God, through Jeremiah, points out the futility of their idolatry. He tells them: “Learn not the way...

Gems From Genesis – By the Word of the Lord

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

According to the evolutionary paradigm, it took millions of years of trial and error to “create” everything in the universe; but the Bible tells us a very different story – God spoke, and it was done!  Notice how often words referring to speech are used in Genesis1.  (“God said,” vs. 3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26, 29; “God called,” vs. 5, 8, 10; “God blessed,” vs. 22, 28.)  This truth is affirmed throughout Scripture.  Note the following examples (bold added for emphasis):...

Train Your “Cubs” for Survival

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

In July, we were in Montana to teach two weekend creation family camps at Glacier Meadows Lodge and teach a church seminar in Chester, MT, in between. Since we had a couple of days off between seminars, we decided to take the opportunity to do some hiking in Glacier National Park.  On the way to one of the hiking spots, we came across a “once in a lifetime” show. A mama bear was trying to teach her three cubs to swim across a river. She swam part-way out into the water...

Spotted Owls and Sacred Cows

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Spotted owls have become the butt of many jokes, much derision, and sometimes outright hatred by conservative commentators, unemployed lumberjacks, and struggling timber-town businessmen.  The raging controversy isn’t the owls fault, though.  They are just high-profile pawns in a very heated war of worldviews. Whether the owls are even “endangered” is a matter of debate.  The “data” varies depending on the viewpoint of the researcher.  The real issue, though, is much deeper...

Trust Your Compass!

Posted on Sep 25, 2012 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Several years ago we were hiking on the Grand Mesa near our home town of Grand Junction.  The day turned cold and very foggy.  In the dense woods, it would have been very easy to get lost. Fortunately, we had our compass with us and Davewas quite familiar with the area.  He knew there were roads on the north and east sides of the area in which we were hiking, so we began to follow our compass north, heading for the road on which we were parked. As we made our way through...

Why Don’t They See?

Posted on May 31, 2012 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

It was a rainy day and Susan sat on her bed watching the raindrops hit the window pane.  She was feeling kind of down because she had argued with her best friend today.  She had shouted at Tiffany and told her she couldn’t be much of a Christian if she believed in that evolution stuff.  Now Susan felt bad. Susan and Tiffany had been given the assignment of dissecting a fish in biology class today.  Looking inside the fish, at all the incredible organs and parts, was...

What You See Is Not What You Always Get

Posted on Mar 2, 2012 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

The eye is an amazing and powerful optical tool.  The eye can detect colors, adjust rapidly to the brightness of the surrounding light and focus automatically.  Modern cameras have only recently started to approach this level of sophistication.  However, the eye and the brain still can do something that modern technology cannot do and that is automatically recognize its image (or picture) – even when part of it is not there or not seen clearly. Sometimes our brain can be...
