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

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 1 comment

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?”...

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):...

A Flood of Evidence Supports God’s Word

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

You may have heard the skeptics say, “You can’t use the Bible to prove the Bible!”  No problem.  A wealth of non-Biblical evidence backs up the Bible as God’s Word.  Based upon anthropological research, the non-Hebrew cultures already believe many of the things that the Hebrew Scripture teaches about Noah’s Flood.  When a comparison is made between the Noahic Flood account of Genesis 6-9 to the flood legends present in over 200 cultures world-wide, striking similarities...

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...

How About Theistic Evolution?

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

CREATION, EVOLUTION, AND THE BIBLE: Did God Use Evolution as His Method of Creation?  There is a wide variety of viewpoints of how the universe and the life on earth began. From what has been presented already (please see article on What’s the Evidence?), it should be clear that we believe the atheistic perspective fails to fit the facts.  The idea that life was seeded to earth by space aliens merely begs the question of where the first life came from and pushes it...

Ancient History Affirms the Bible

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

When it comes to history, most modern texts tell a similar story: man started as a hunter-gatherer, made tools, began farming, developed language, formed societies, and continues to evolve ever upward. If we assume this premise, however, we are left with a few false implications. First, if recorded history didn’t begin until the early Mesopotamian societies, anything prior is a blank slate. It also implies that early man was ignorant and lacked the desire or awareness to...

The Bible – Myth or Truth?

Posted on Oct 11, 2013 in Articles | 0 comments

Mary and her new friend Sally were in the living room looking through a book. “Dad, take a look at this!” Mary called out, “It’s a picture of a guy holding up the earth!” Mr. Jones looked at the picture in the book. Smiling, Mr. Jones replied, “That’s a picture of an ancient Greek myth about a so-called god named Atlas, Mary.” “What’s a myth, Dad?” Mary asked. “Many years ago, when people were confused or didn’t understand something, they would sometimes make up stories to...

Grand Canyon in Biblical Perspective

Posted on Aug 30, 2013 in Articles | 0 comments

Grand Canyon is called a monument to a billion years of evolution and millions of years of gradual erosion. However, under careful scrutiny, the evidence seems to tell a different story – a story much more consistent with the Biblical record. No human was present to see the canyon form so here is just a possible scenario based on Biblical text and certain geologic clues. (See to correlate the numbers given below.) Genesis 1:1-7 says that God created the heaven and the Earth...

Who Cares About the Flood?

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

The secular world laughs at it and scholars scoff at it. Moreover, university students point to the account of the Flood in Genesis to prove the Bible wrong. Earth science textbooks make statements like, “People used to believe in a Flood, but today …” Even many people in the Christian community marginalize the Flood, calling it a “myth” or a “story” for kids. In contrast, there are many people like me and the rest of the AOI staff, who not only accept the Biblical account...

Sea Anemones, Sea Slugs, and an Amazing Missile System

Posted on Jun 21, 2013 in Articles | 0 comments

Life in the sea is filled with beauty, intrigue, and evidence for an amazing Creator. Sea anemones and sea slugs are beautiful from an artist’s standpoint, giving good evidence of the Master Artist Who created them. And it gets better! Note the tentacles of the sea anemone: Positioned at the end of each tentacle is a special missile system. It is a spring loaded, poison-tipped dart capsule that sports a trap door and a trigger. When a fish brushes the trigger, the trap door...
