Recently, Fox aired its newest TV show titled “Terra Nova”. As a guy who seeks to stay tuned in with the “comings and goings” of dinosaurs, this seemed like something I should check out since the previews were full of these grand creatures. Digging bones out of the ground is really cool, but I also pay attention to the mass produced cultural impact dinosaurs make too.
August 15, 2011After the water of the Genesis flood subsided, God told Noah to, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.” Within a few hundred years, mankind was building a city and tower in defiance of God’s command, rather than trusting in His sovereign control over the planet. Today, “save the planet” movements such as the global warming thriller, “An Inconvenient Truth” or Earth Day celebrations, hearken back to the early, post-flood days of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel through their “self-preservation” philosophies.

As Christian parents, educators and mentors, we want our children to hear the gospel message, understand the meaning of the cross and be transformed by the truths in its proclamation, but as leaders of this upcoming generation, we have failed mightily to root this message in genuine history of the world as found in the early chapters of Genesis.
We have turned our noses up at the book of Genesis because...

Tomorrow (May 21) is supposed to be the day the world comes to an end; I am skeptical about its reality. However, one thing I am certain about is the fact that “one day” the end will come to us all. This fact is cannot be escaped and in many respects, this time should be longed for.
Recent earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan have stirred people’s thoughts about signs of the end, but I prefer to look at these events as...
December 27, 2010It is not uncommon to hear reports of prejudice against people of differing skin colors these days. Events like these, can serve as reminders of the division and separation still existing in the world today. This sin of oppression is clearly illustrated in current events and through historic reminders of our nation’s past. Even now, we are still a people divided by our skin color; but why...?

It is not likely people would change the way they view the Bible. However, it could serrve as a great encouragement to Christians. If such proof were possible to attain, it would reinforce the belief in a real Noah's ark and greatly encourage those who were somewhat skeptical. A person who had already rejected the Bible would likely not be swayed by any such evidence.
December 09, 2010After the death of Moses, Joshua became the leader of Israel; in some of his first words to these people he said, “Remember the word that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you…” Genesis is relevant for many things, but most of all it should cause us to remember who we are.

Back in the day, my grandfather would drive three days to see me; but because there were not any street lights, he would drive only during the day.
The question before us is, “Does ‘day’ mean a 24-hour period or ages?” The short answer to this question is…yes. The word “day” is like many words in the English language, it can have multiple meanings and all are based upon the context surrounding the word. It is evident from my grandfather story above, day can be very flexible. In the sentence above, day means a period of time in the past, 24-hour and and the daylight portion of a day. So what does the word day mean within Genesis 1?—Before we go any further, let’s look at some of the different meanings that can be applied to the word "day"…

Since the publication of Charles Darwin's "Origin of Species", man has battled with the theory of evolution. Its clear opposition to the teaching of scripture creates much frustration among Christians and non-Christians alike. If we will be absolutely honest with ourselves, understanding the origin of man or any other form of life is not within the realm of science. Science has limitations: it must be observed, tested and repeatable. If a scientist performs an experiment in the United States, in order for it to be valid, then a different scientist on the other side of the world should be able to perform the same experiment. The beginning of the universe or the origin of life is not observable, testable or repeatable and therefore our understanding of these things cannot be supported by scientific theory alone.
The origin of the universe and of life requires us to look to an eyewitness or a trusted written document. As the Creator of everything, God is that eyewitness and the Bible is that written word upon which the beginning of everything can be known. This is not an attempt to push my religious views upon you...
