Have you been on the internet lately? If so, it may be costing you more than you think. That's the suggestion of a study done by researchers from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. The study...

Pre-Adamic Man

Author: 
Ian Taylor

Many people hold to the notion that man-like beings existed long before Adam and may even have been his contemporary. The idea is usually hazy and half-formed, while comfort is drawn from the fact that many of the spiritual giants of Christendom have given their approval to pre-Adamic or pre-Adamite man. Those seeking biblical support admit this is not explicit but point out that the Bible makes no claim to be a complete record of the history of the world.

Promoters of the Humanist Ideal

Author: 
Ian Taylor

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.

Genesis and Family Values

Author: 
Pastor Paul A. Bartz

The breakdown of family values all around us ultimately can't be blamed on television, rap music, or the mythological greenhouse effect.

Society has gotten so lawless that lawlessness has become a "freedom" and even a virtue. The very foundation of society has broken down. And what's the basis of society?

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.

Noah's Three Sons

Author: 
Ian Taylor

1. Genesis 6:9 states that Noah was "perfect in his generations." It has been suggested this means that Noah and his family [the ninth generation after Adam] were the few left on Earth who were genetically uncontaminated by the B’NAI HA’ELOHIM [sons of God, Genesis 6:2]. Noah’s family could  thus be used by God to re-build the human family and provide a pure heritage for the Messiah. God warned Adam that if he ate the forbidden fruit “on that day you will surely die” [Gen. 2:17] but as God’s “day” is as a 1000 years [2 Peter 3:8] Adam died at 930 years.

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.

God's Therapy of Mercy

Author: 
By Paul A. Bartz

Why do we need physicians and medicine? If God created the world and everything in it perfect, where did disease, sickness and death come from? How can disease and death be part of God's plan for the creation?

God did not fashion a creation in which disease and death took place. Our ailments are our own doing. We added them to God's creation. When man withdrew his love from God by disobeying Him, man changed the nature of God's creation.

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.

Laying the Foundation for the Family

Author: 
Pastor Steven T. Cook

Read Psalm 127. We find God's description of the proper family attitudes, in these verses. As we go through it verse by verse, we will see how this compares to what the world is trying to get us to accept.

In verse one, the true foundation of any successful enterprise is found, whether it be the home or the city. Who/what is it? Jesus Christ uses much the same concept in His teaching in Matthew 7:24-27 (which read). Before going on, consider if you are building on the proper foundation.

Turn to I Cor. 3:10-15. In which ways does this passage apply to the subject of the family?

How Social Darwinism Weakened the Home

Author: 
Nancy Pearcey

Do kids today need their parents? Since much of their socialization takes place in school and scouts and soccer league, we sometimes get the impression children really don't need their parents much any more. A new ideology is spreading rapidly in our culture that stresses children's autonomy, an ideology that suggests to parents that continuous supervision of their children is neither necessary nor particularly healthy.
