Ethics/Morality

On Capital Punishment

Author: 
Ian Taylor

The foundations for human morals and ethics are found in the book of Genesis. The issue of capital punishment was given Genesis 9:6, God’s Covenant with Noah upon leaving the ark and entering the new world after the Flood: “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man.” In the former world, from the Creation to the Flood, permission had not been given to take the life of the murderer. Instead, the murderer was to be exiled as in the example of Cain who murdered his brother, Abel (Genesis 4:8-16).

Promoters of the Humanist Ideal

Ian Taylor1. From Genesis 4:3-5 we see that Abel was a keeper of the sheep while Cain was a tiller of the ground so it would seem quite reasonable for Cain to have brought a grain or fruit offering but this displeased the Lord. From Genesis 3:21 where God made coats of skin for Adam and Eve, it is clear that an animal must have been sacrificed with blood shed to do so.

Scientific Racism

Author: 
Ian Taylor

Adolf Hitler1. Human pride is the usual cause of racial prejudice and every ethnic group has been guilty of believing themselves to be somehow superior to all others: Christians of the past have been no exception. Modern genetics has well established the fact that all colors of the human race will have derived from a single mating pair; the color of that pair would have been brown and, in fact, that is the predominant color of the human race today.

Teaching Evolution - Is There a Better Way?

Author: 
Ian Taylor

Charles Darwin1. Today's public school textbooks on Biology, Earth sciences, and Human society generally well-present the facts; it is the interpretation of those facts that is currently under fire and is being openly questioned. Without exception, that interpretation is from the evolutionary perspective and serves to colour the very words that are used in the text. Textbooks on Human anthropology are notoriously bad in this repect.

The Stuff that Dreams Are Made Of

Author: 
Ian Taylor

The history of the rise of humanism in Europe is the record of society's change in the way of thinking from being God-centered to human-centered. This change was a reaction against the authoritarian rule by theologians who used Scripture to interpret nature but relied upon the writings of Aristotle to make those interpretations. This change in thinking began in the 1600s and has continued into the present day; two names are recognized by historians as being more responsible than any others for initiating this humanist worldview. Those names are Francis Bacon and René Descartes.

Modern Medicine is Not So Modern

Modern Medicine is Not So Modern

by David A. Wise

"Modern" medicine has arrived four thousand years late! Was this an accident? Is it just a coincidence that the Mosaic record does not contain a single medical misconception?

Footnotes: 

1. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in women.

2. The medical sciences related to human sexuality are summed up in Genesis 2:24 by the phrase, "And they shall be one flesh."

3. Leviticus 15:8, 16, 17 and 22:4 give further ins

The Life That God Has Made

Author: 
Paul A. Bartz

The Biblical teaching that God is the Author of life is well known to Christians. Unfortunately, we have been influenced by the world into thinking about life in the same way as those around us who have been influenced by evolution. Life is much more than just a physical process brought about by the miraculous order of chemicals within the body. Evolution is totally unable to explain that order, but there is even more to life than that.

Geology and Genesis

Author: 
Ian Taylor

Charles LyellJust how does the modern geologist tell the age of a rock by simply looking at it? For that matter, where do all those millions of years come from and how can they be reconciled with Genesis? Until the 17th century most people of Europe and Britain believed the biblical account of creation and a global Flood.

Freud: The Darwin of the Human Psyche

Author: 
Ian Taylor

Charles Darwin, Sigmund Freud and Karl Marx have often been regarded as that unholy trinity who, in the last century, laid the foundation for today's pagan society. Darwin gave the world biological evolution in 1859. Freud later developed the notion to give us the evolution of the human psyche, while at about the same time Marx told us how society would evolve. The following short exposé shows the important influence of Darwin on Freud's thinking and includes some very recent disclosures.

Inventing the Flat Earth

Author: 
Ian Taylor

It's no surprise that the history taught in our schools is a rather dull subject. Virtually all events in history, particularly European history, were motivated by religious causes: Muslims massacred Christians, Catholics slaughtered Protestants, Protestants killed Catholics, and all parties persecuted Jews. In the 1800s schools were run by religious authorities, and children attended the school of their parents' faith. When governments took over education, children of various faiths were all hurled together into the same classroom.

The Feminists and Evolution

Author: 
Ian Taylor

She was Lithuanian, Jewish and unmarried when she entered the United States in 1886 as an immigrant looking for work. The 17-year-old Emma Goldman married reluctantly at 18, but before her 20th birthday she had been divorced twice from the same man. Vowing never to be trapped by matrimony again, she argued that love in marriage was a contradiction; love should be free, not bonded, and she practiced her conviction with a succession of lovers until her 65th year. A century ago this was a radical lifestyle, but then Emma Goldman was not the average woman.

Creation: Meaning, Order, Purpose

Author: 
Robin Fish

Creation is the doctrine which undergirds all other doctrines. It tells us about God, and what the word "God" means, at least in part. We know nothing about God if we know nothing about creation. If we know about creation, and believe, we can understand our basic relationship to God, who He is and what claim He has on our lives and how we live them. It is this understanding that gives us a sense of natural order in our lives, gives us the knowledge of a greater purpose in our lives and gives us meaning or value to our very being.

God's Plan For The Family: Husband And Wife/Parents

Author: 
Pastor Steven T. Cook

As God created all things, He also instituted the family. We will consider in this study what His plans are for the family. After all, if He established it, He would be the best source of information on how the family should function.

1.Read Genesis 1:27-28 and 2:21-24. Describe the family God began here. What members of the family are listed?

One wit pointed out that we find, at creation, God created one man and one woman: He didn't make Adam, Eve and Sue just in case. Nor was it Adam, Eve and Sam just in case.

God's Truth Satisfies the Human Mind

Author: 
Pastor Paul A. Bartz

Critics of the Biblical faith say that a faith which understands the Bible on its own terms is an assault on the thinking mind. Atheists consider the Biblical faith a rejection of human mental abilities. Religious liberals and those who follow non-Christian religions consider Christianity a "blind leap of faith" which must either reject reason and evidence or set up a special and segregated mental reality to accept the Bible. But is it true that in His revelation God expects us to abandon the mental capacities He has given us?

Christianity in the Third Millennium

Author: 
Ian Taylor

1. Introduction. Since the Creation Satan has had an agenda to replace the Creator God as the object of Man’s worship by himself. We recall that Man was made in the image of God and needs to worship his Creator. Satan’s attack has consisted of destroying God’s revealed truth to Man (the Bible) then so corrupting Man that Satan himself may be deified as God on earth.

Compromise and the Faith

Ian Taylor1. The discovery of the colored peoples by the Caucasian Christian West in the 16th century caused some to doubt that the Genesis Flood had been universal since the only family on the Ark were surely Caucasion! Later, at the time of the Industrial Revolution and during the search for coal and minerals, it was realized that rocks appeared in layers or stratum, each of different composition from those layers above and below.

A Biblical Foundation For Sociology

Author: 
Paul A. Bartz

Modern sociology, which is based on evolution, cannot be "cleaned up" and made Christian. The very foundation of modern sociology is corrupt and anti-Christian. Sociologists hope to reach their goals by rewriting history and manipulating people into thinking they are right. When people see this, they realize that something is wrong. But the problem lies at the very foundations of sociology. Since it is based on evolution, sociology has no idea of the source or purposes of human practices and beliefs.
