Today's Creation Moment

New Scientific Evidence for the Flood
Genesis 7:20
"Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered."
If there was a great worldwide Flood, as described in Genesis, such a catastrophe certainly should have left obvious evidence of itself all over the world. Scientists who believe in creation say that...

Humanism

The New World Order

Author: 
Ian Taylor

1. During the past two millenia the world view of the West has been that of Catholic and Protestant Christianity while that of the East has been based upon many minority religions including Islam. In the Middle Ages referring to a person as a "humanist" meant that their interests were primarily in Greek and Roman antiquities and literature. Today, “humanism” means a doctrine centered upon human interests and usually rejects supernaturalism.

History of Humanism

Author: 
Ian Taylor

1. From Genesis 4:3-5 we see that Abel [the second born] was a keeper of the sheep while Cain [the first born] was a tiller of the ground. God required a sacrifice and to Christian readers it might be thought that the first-born would be the priest and offer the blood sacrifice. However, Cain had evidently proven not to be a God-fearing man and, rather than trade with his brother, thought that a fruit offering as a sacrifice was good enough. But the Lord had evidently given instructions that that the offering was to be a blood sacrifice – a life for a life.

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.

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 Baconian Method of Science

1.  The three basic questions that have faced mankind  since the beginning of time are: Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going? Philosophers have attempted to provide answers based upon human wisdom but these answers vary from one philosopher to the next. On the other hand, a great many people believe that there is a God who created everything and gave mankind the Scriptures in which are found the correct answers to those three eternal questions.

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.

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.

From Babel to the New World Order

Author: 
Ian Taylor

1. In the Middle Ages referring to a person as a "humanist" meant that their interests were in Greek and Roman literature and antiquities. Humanism today means a worldview concerned with human, not divine, interests. Ultimately, the humanist objective is to make Man the master of his own destiny. The Genesis Flood destroyed all those having a humanist worldview leaving only Noah and his family to begin the post-Flood generation. Within a short time, the humanist worldview again became dominant and we find this in the account of the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-4).

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.

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.

New Age Teachings In The Church

Author: 
Paul A. Bartz

As we have summarized this month, New Age teachings, while offering some well-defined positions, are often offered in various terms, depending on what the hearers will tolerate. This has made it possible for New Age proponents to offer their admittedly religious teachings in public education, and distinctly non-Christian religious teachings in Christian churches.

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.

The Demise of Charles Darwin

Author: 
Ian Taylor

It was four o'clock on Wednesday afternoon of April 19, 1882, when Charles Darwin took his last breath. His final hours had been accompanied by much chest pain and vomiting as his heart struggled to keep going through several attacks. The weakened heart did not survive the final attack and, with the signal death gasp, Charles Darwin left this mortal life. He had lived for 73 years and the last 40 of those years were spent quietly at his house in the village of Downe, just southeast of London.

Confronting the New Age as A Creature of God

Pastor Paul A. Bartz

1.What does it mean for us to be a creature of God today?

New Agers do not have the God of the Bible in mind when they teach that god is in us. New Age religion teaches us to think of ourselves as continuing our evolution from animals toward godhood.

Neither are they accurate in their description of who and what we are. God's own Word gives us a very different, and much more accurate, picture.
