Asking Jesus in – Really?

Is “Asking Jesus into our Hearts” Biblical? Questioning the unquestionable… We have all heard it taught.  It is taught to children in Sunday schools, private Christian schools, and in Christian homes across the land.  It is taught as being the Gospel message, the plan of salvation, and in modern times it is even presented to […]

Science is Only a Tool – Scientific Evidence for Creation

(by Bruce Malone, used with permission)
SCIENCE IS A TOOL. Sweeping statements by scientists concerning what happened in the past should never be confused with facts because the former are always based on limited knowledge.
Conclusions often change as more knowledge, data, and mechanisms are discovered. Science is just the tool used to uncover the truth. It is not, nor should it be confused with, absolute truth. One area of science where this misunderstanding is especially prevalent is with scientific statements regarding the age of the earth. Over the last 200 years, the “accepted” age of the earth has risen from 6000 to 5 billion years.
One classic argument for the great age of a geologic feature comes from Specimen Ridge in Yellowstone National Park. Continue reading

Water CAN Move Mountains – Rapidly – Scientific Evidence for Creation

(by Bruce Malone, used with permission)
Four million people per year visit the Grand Canyon and ponder the incredible forces which cut this chasm out of the earth. Did the small river at the bottom carve through the many layers of sediment over eons of time or did a catastrophic event carve the canyon more rapidly? These are the competing explanations for the origin of the Grand Canyon. How could a flood, though, have accomplished so much? As the following examples show, moving water has enormous erosion capabilities.
In the spring of 1983 the spill-way tunnel of the Glen Canyon Dam had to be opened to allow drainage of water from Lake Powell. When one of the spillways was fully opened the flow pattern changed and blocks of rock were seen hurtling out of the spillway exit. Continue reading

Explosive Evidence for Creation

(by Bruce Malone, used with permission)
In order to determine what happened in the past, geologists study current processes and use these observations to determine how rock layers came to cover our planet. Before the 1800’s, geology was dominated by the acknowledgment that a worldwide flood was the cause of most rock layers. This changed when the founders of modern geology, James Hutton and Charles Lyell, succeeded in replacing this interpretation with the belief in uniformitarianism.
Uniformitarianism is the belief that slow-and-gradual processes, like we see today, account for the geological features of our planet. It also assumes that there never was a massive and rapid accumulation of sediment caused by a worldwide catastrophe. Charles Darwin was heavily influenced by this type of thought Continue reading

Fossils Do Not Prove Evolution – Scientific Evidence for Creation

(by Bruce Malone, used with permission)
Fossils. The very name brings to mind images of untold ages past…dinosaurs roaming ancient swamps…slow but steady progression as simple sea life was transformed into today’s complex variety. Is this an accurate reconstruction of the past or is a worldwide flood the correct explanation of the fossil record?
Fossils are the preserved evidence of past life. They are found in every part of the world, including the tops of the highest mountains. They may be as simple as a seashell which has left a permanent impression in sandstone or as grandiose as a giant plesiosaur whose bones have turned to rock after rapid burial. The fossils themselves tell us neither their age nor how they became encased in the rock layers. Rather, they must be interpreted within some view of earth history. Many people have been led to believe that the existence of fossils proves that millions of years have passed. In reality, fossils can form quite rapidly. Continue reading

Our Mysterious Past – Scientific Evidence for Creation

(by Bruce Malone, used with permission)
Just beneath the lush vegetation and majestic scenery of our planet is a massive worldwide graveyard. Plants and animals are buried by the billions under countless tons of mud and sediment which have subsequently turned to rock. How did all those organisms get there? The answer to that question is THE KEY to understanding our origin.
Starting in the early 1800’s geologists have chosen to interpret fossils and sediments based on a presupposition of slow accumulation, or more recently, multiple local catastrophes over billions of years (uniformitarianism). Thousands of geologists have been indoctrinated in this belief and have spent the last 150 years working to fit the evidence into this interpretation of earth history. Yet, many facts remain unexplained by this interpretation. Most of these “mysteries” disappear, if the reality of a recent worldwide flood is acknowledged. Continue reading

How did Cain Find a Wife? – Scientific Evidence for Creation

(by Bruce Malone, used with permission)
The following is the paraphrased essence of one of the most critical junctures in the most famous trial of the twentieth century. The scene is the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial, and defense attorney Clarence Darrow had goaded prosecuting attorney Williams Jennings Bryan to take the stand in defense of the Bible.
“Mr. Bryan, Where did Cain find a wife?”
“I don’t know.”
“Could you repeat your answer Mr. Bryan? The entire nation is listening via radio broadcast and this is a pretty basic and simple question. Let me rephrase it. If, as the Bible claims, Adam and Eve were the first man and woman, and no other people existed, who did their son Cain find to marry?”
“I don’t know.”

Darrow made Bryan appear foolish because he did not know scripture well enough to defend the most basic of questions. This trial marked a turning point in American education because, Continue reading

Only God Can Make an Instinct – Scientific Evidence for Creation

(by Bruce Malone, used with permission)
The Mallee Fowl is a mound building bird that lives in Australia. It is about the size of a chicken and is an incredibly busy worker. In the fall of each year, the male begins to dig a hole about three feet deep. After the hole is dug, he piles leaves and twigs into the pit. After each rain he covers a layer of vegetation with sand sealing in the moisture. The mound he builds can be up to 35 feet across and 15 feet high. He will move as much as 6000 pounds of material to build his mound. As the wet vegetation decays, it produces heat. So as the leaves and twigs rot, the pile warms up.
The Mallee Fowl keeps checking the temperature of the mound by pushing his heat sensitive beak and tongue into the mound. It may take four months for the mound to reach the perfect temperature (92 degF). When it is warm enough, the male digs an egg chamber and the female starts to lay eggs over a period of many days.

The Prosperity Gospel & You

When we hear the words “prosperity gospel” most people don’t like to think that they themselves go to such a church or hold any of those beliefs.  The sad truth, however, is that the prosperity gospel has saturated the American Christian culture and seeped into the seams of almost every church to one degree or another.  Below, I have provided a link to some recent articles over at 9 Marks Blog.  They have been addressing the lies and appeal of the prosperity gospel as well as some tips on how  to evangelize those who follow it, and they have been doing a pretty good job at it.  But my invitation to visit their blog comes with a warning:  Don’t automatically think that you will reading about someone else!  If you believe that God rewards health and finances according to your level of faith & giving, or that anything you do (yes, even tithing) somehow obligates God to respond with blessings  you may be under the appealing spell of the prosperity message.

I encourage you to read some of these short articles with an open mind, open heart and a prayer on your lips:

Stasis – Yesterday Once More – Scientific Evidence for Creation

(by Bruce Malone, used with permission)
The fossil record shows thousands of organisms which have remained literally unchanged while millions of years supposedly passed. Fossilized or amber encapsulated organisms (often assumed to be over 100 million years old) compared with identical modern living specimens are practically identical. Meanwhile, other forms of life were supposedly changing – all the way from fish to people – without leaving a transitional record.1 This is one of many problems with the belief in evolutionism.
It is a fact of biology that organisms have an incredible ability to accurately reproduce copies of themselves. So where do new types of animals come from? Believers in evolution theorize that new animals arise when a reproductive mistake happens. They believe the “old” creature slowly turns into a completely different type of creature (apparently without leaving any fossil remains of the transitional forms). Meanwhile, other animals of the same type remained identical for millions of years! Continue reading

Common Creation Questions Answered – Scientific Evidence for Creation

(by Bruce Malone, used with permission)
Many questions are raised by believers in evolution when presented with the evidence for creation. This article addresses three of these common questions.

How did the marsupials get to Australia?
Noah was charged with building the vessel to safeguard certain animals during the worldwide flood (a massive and complex worldwide disaster), not with distributing them afterwards. Once Noah released the animals on the mountains of Ararat, natural instincts and climatic conditions determined how the redistribution of the animal population took place. As subsequent generations of animals spread across the globe, territorial prowess or chance movements would send certain groups in certain directions. Those animals least suited for, or least able, to defend a territory would either be forced further from the landing site or exterminated. A consequence of the worldwide flood was a brief but severe ice age which locked ocean water into vast ice fields. This lowered ocean levels and created a land bridge to Australia. Continue reading
