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....

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...

…On The Right Track In Genesis

Posted on Sep 11, 2012 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  Below is a segment from a letter I just received from my translator in India.  A few years ago, he translated my Genesis series over a period of two weeks for a number of Bible colleges and seminaries.   …Hope you are keeping well as I do here by His grace. I just want to say…………….You have been the mentor of life. Though I did not realize it earlier. Now it feels great to have someone who guided me to the right track in life. Thanks...

He Created….Much Like A Carpenter

Posted on Jun 21, 2012 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

Let us turn back to Genesis. Genesis 1:1-2 The word ‘beginning’ is a reference to time.  The word ‘heaven’ is a reference to space.  Now in this space, there are no stars, planets, moons, sun, etc.  It is just empty three dimensional space.  The word ‘earth’ means matter and this matter is only water molecules as we will read later.  This earth is not the earth we inhabit today.  This earth, or matter, is without form as we will read in verse two. We also read in verse one...

Genesis 1:1 In the Beginning God…

Posted on Jun 15, 2012 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

Genesis 1:1  “In the beginning God…” This is a very scientific statement.  This statement deals with the ‘Law of Cause and Effect, or the Law of Causality’. For example, if I drop a ball, the ball will fall and hit the ground.  The effect is the ball falling and hitting the ground.  What was the cause?  What caused the ball to fall?  It was gravity, so gravity is the cause.  Now, what caused or made gravity?  How did gravity get here?  Eventually we need...

Can Man Make Himself?

Posted on Jun 12, 2012 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

Before we continue in Genesis let us observe the statue to the right. In the picture, we see a statue of a man carving himself out of rock.  Do you see anything strange here?  Do you believe this could happen?  Can statues make themselves by carving themselves out of rock?  What about humans?  Can humans make themselves from rocks, or the elements of the earth?  What you are looking at is evolution.  Evolution states that we can make ourselves out of the elements of the...

We Continue In Genesis….Source Of Scientific Method and Knowledge

Posted on May 31, 2012 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

Continuing with our study of science, we learn science deals with “order, purpose, and laws.”   Examining evolution: evolution is ‘disorder (random chance & accident), purposeless (no intelligence), and lawless.”  God is a Being of “order, purpose, and laws.”  So His creation should also have “order, purpose, and laws.”   When we compare the three – science, evolution, plus God and His creation, we discover evolution does...

Where Should We Look For The Answers To Life’s Toughest Questions? – Genesis Chapter One

Posted on May 25, 2012 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

People in the world today have many questions; for example: How did everything get here? Why are we here? Who am I? What is the purpose of life? Why is there so much suffering and death in the world? What does the future hold for me? Where will I spend eternity?   We as Christians need to know the answers to these questions, as well as many others. I Peter 3:15 –  “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man...

Bible’s Records of Creation-Written in Legalese?

Posted on Nov 18, 2010 in Articles | 0 comments

Surveying the sordid history of our world, it’s obvious that social relations between humans are often plagued by misunderstanding.  A lot of this misunderstanding is due to unclear language. To address this chronic human problem, we have established courts of law.  Courts, in turn, have developed their own distinctive method of communicating clearly.  Lawyers employ a language style known to non-lawyers as “legalese.”  One of the main features of “legalese” is repetition. ...

Chinese Writing Tells of Genesis

Posted on Aug 5, 2010 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Did you know that many ancient Chinese words have their roots in Genesis? These ancient words are made up of pictures. For example, the word for tempter is made up of pictures representing a garden, a serpent, and a woman. Amazingly, the word for boat is 8 mouths in a vessel. This reminds us of accounts of Adam and Eve’s fall and the 8 individuals who survived the flood of Noah’s days. Their culture had a creation base, but, sadly it was lost to religious...

Gems From Genesis – How Did All the Skin Colors Arise?

Posted on Sep 20, 2008 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

A common question of skeptics of the Bible and even of some Bible-believing Christians is, “If we all came from Adam and Eve, why are there so many different skin colors?”  There is a good answer, which is consistent with both the Bible and with well-known genetic principles.  I will deal with the genetic principles in the next article (The Origin of the Races), but let’s review here the Biblical foundations for answering this question. The early chapters of Genesis reveal...
