Encouragement circles around…

  I wanted to share with you an encouraging email we received from an attendee of one of our church seminars.  At this particular event, I was teaching my Genesis Series starting with Genesis chapter one. Below is the email (the name and location were withheld by request). Hi Rich, Thank you so much for teaching during the Sunday school hour at our church this past month. I hope you can come back again if you have the time. There are so many more things I want to...

Southwest Geology Tour Sights- Upheaval Dome

Southwest Geology Tour Sights- Upheaval Dome

Posted on Apr 20, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  On the college field trip that Mary Jo & I are leading, we see many great sites, several of which leave us with more questions than answers. One such example is: what caused the unusual formation called Upheaval Dome? Was it a meteor that slammed into the earth at this spot? Perhaps it was a fluid like bulge of a salt dome pushing it up from below? Is it a volcanic outburst? Perhaps there were giant gophers in the past that dug this immense mile wide hole? All of...

From Youth To Retirees – Something for Everyone

From Youth To Retirees – Something for Everyone

Posted on Apr 7, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  I want to continue my recollection from recent tours… started in my last blog.  Our Idaho tour began Thursday evening (March 27th) with a night of teaching for the AWANA group at Cambridge Bible Church. They had been studying the beginning of Genesis and wanted to continue the theme, so it was very fitting to use my teaching on Genesis chapter 3.  I only had to make a few alterations of my usual program for these young people, and then I was off teaching.  The...

Bunk Beds and Bible Conference!

Bunk Beds and Bible Conference!

Posted on Mar 29, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  We spent about ten days, a few weeks ago, at Cornerstone Bible Institute in Hot Springs, SD.  Rich was the speaker for the first week of their annual Bible Conference. During the 19 hours of regularly scheduled time, and an additional two hours of optional teaching (always looking for a little more time), he worked through Genesis chapters one to three, plus three other sessions – which included:  The Star of Bethlehem, The Creation of Angels, and Evolution,...

Is Creation a Salvation Issue?

Is Creation a Salvation Issue?

Posted on Feb 14, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Someone asked that question last week. The answer is “No,” but in some cases “Yes.” That sounds a bit confusing doesn’t it? The Bible’s clear teaching in Acts 16:31 is, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”  Ephesians 2:8 says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.” These verses and others say nothing about being able to correctly answer “entrance exam questions” to get into...

Gems From Genesis – And It Was Good

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

Six times in Genesis 1, we find the phrase “It was good.”  This phrase follows a pattern:  God speaks and something happens.  Then God examines His work and pronounces it “good.”  Following the creation of man – male and female – God looks at all that He has made and says, “It is very good.” This is not a series of haphazard, trial and error events.  Rather, God follows a well thought-out plan.  He is purposeful and precise in what He does.  He doesn’t make mistakes.  Nor...

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...

A Biblical Model of Earth History

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

The book of Genesis has been called the book of origins. Though it is not a detailed “textbook,” it gives a framework for understanding the origin of space, matter, time, the earth, the universe, life, marriage, families, cultures, government, religion, languages, and people groups. For study purposes, it is helpful to divide the Biblical record of earth history into 7 major periods or events: Creation, Fall, Pre-Flood, Flood, Post-Flood, Present, and Future. While it is...

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):...

Did the Continents Split in the Days of Peleg?

Posted on Jun 13, 2013 in Books and movies we like | 1 comment

In the Table of Nations (genealogies) recorded in Genesis 10, most names are listed without additional comment. However, when you get to verse 25, you read: “To Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.” What does this little phrase, “in his days the earth was divided” mean? Some Christians have suggested that it means the dividing and separating of the continents occurred during the life of...

Lessons from Babel

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

I have been reading Bodie Hodge’s new book, Tower of Babel: The Cultural History of Our Ancestors. The information Hodge presents is not only fascinating and enlightening, but it also got me thinking about what we can learn for our own lives and times from this long-ago event. First of all, we need to understand that the event described in Genesis 11 is historically true and accurate. Like the rest of Scripture, it is inspired by God and included in the Biblical record for...

Genesis Series on the Road…

Posted on Mar 14, 2013 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  We had a wonderful time at Sheridan Lake, CO, teaching and having fellowship with the saints.  We taught eleven hours at Sheridan Lake Bible Church, and nine of those eleven hours were spent teaching Genesis chapters one through three.  Even with the nine hours of teaching, we did not quite finish Genesis chapter three.  It was a casual time of teaching, and during the teaching I enjoyed answering various questions they had about Genesis and creation in general....
