Great Floods

Great Floods

Posted on May 25, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  The other night, I presented a program called “Noah? A Flood of Evidence” to a group of eager learners at AOI’s center in Grand Junction. Part of it dealt with the huge floods resulting from breached dams, including Lake Bonneville and Lake Missoula, both of which almost instantaneously carved enormous canyons. The next morning, I noticed Richard Stepanek’s earlier blog called “A Tour of Catastrophes,” where he mentions how traveling on their speaking trip from...

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...

Ministry in El Salvador

Ministry in El Salvador

Posted on Mar 7, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Last week, I had the opportunity to speak at several churches (with groups ranging from 65 to around 200), a university with 25 in attendance, a public school group of about 50 teens and a Christian school of an estimated 125 to 150 high school and middle school students. All of this was in the country of El Salvador. (The sign at the right says: Dave Nutting Welcome to the City of God.) The churches had special services on Saturday night, and Sunday morning as well...

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...

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 – 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...

For Signs and For Seasons

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

The Bible tells us that God made the lights in the heavens “for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years” (Gen. 1:14). Since the dawn of recorded history, people have studied the stars.  Interestingly enough, cultures all around the world have identified and named the same constellations, though the groupings of stars bear little or no resemblance to the creatures they supposedly represent.  Is this merely coincidence or does it indicate a common origin for their...

You Can Believe It All

“Thanks for staying all night and going to church with me this morning, Tommy.”  Ron said to Tommy as they were walking to Ron’s house. “Yeah, it’s been a blast, Ron, …but I have got to tell you, you’ve got some crazy people at your church!” “What do you mean?” “Well you know, that teacher was telling us about some big ol’ flood, and then your preacher talked about some guy named Adam and his wife Eve talking to a snake!”  Tommy laughed. “What’s so funny about that, Tommy?”...

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...
