For the Sheer Joy of Variety!
Isaiah 45:9

Did you ever try to plan all the details of a simple project? How many plans do you think the Lord had to make when He created living things? A billion? A billion times a billion? We all know that it...

God's Design

Creation and the Gospel

John 1:3
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

What does the Bible’s teaching on creation have to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Are these just two separate and unrelated biblical teachings? Christians often ask us, “Shouldn’t we just worry about the basics? Why worry about a teaching like creation?” Indeed, we should be concerned with basics.

We See by Faith

Hebrews 11:1
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

As Christians, we believe by faith. But did you know that even evolutionary scientists believe by their own kind of faith? Scientists early in the previous century, like scientists today, had no evidence that humans had evolved from ape like creatures.

There Is No Simple Life

Job 37:8
“Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.”

We often hear people speak of “simple life forms” or the “simple cell.” Is there really such a thing as “simple life”? Although we often speak of the “simple cell,” there really is no such thing as a simple form of life. Even the single celled creature is a highly complex organism.

The Days in Genesis

Genesis 1:5
“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”

Silently, a huge, powerful form slides through the deep, cold, dark depths of the sea. The men aboard the nuclear submarine have seen neither sun nor daylight for months, yet each one knows what day it is. The men know what day and what time it is even without seeing daylight because the sun’s movement – like a clock – only measures time; it doesn’t create it.

Do the Bible and Science Mix?

John 3:12
“If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things.”

Scientific principles learned in the Bible have led to countless scientific discoveries and saved millions of lives. It’s true. Without the Bible, we would never have the blessings of modern science.

The Master Artist

Genesis 2:9
“And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food…”

God not only is powerful and creative as Master Designer, but He is more. He is the supreme artist.

James Clerk Maxwell: Creation Scientist

1 Corinthians 2:5
“That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

James Clerk Maxwell was a Scottish physicist and professor at King’s College, London, and then at Cambridge University. Albert Einstein said that Maxwell had made a greater contribution to physics than anyone except Isaac Newton. Maxwell developed complex theoretical and mathematical explanations for all James Clerk Maxwellthe forces in the universe except gravity and nuclear forces.

Skeptics Admit: Science Can’t Deny Soul

John 8:56
“Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.”

Accepting that God created man, did He create a non-material part within him we call the soul as well as the familiar material body?  Of course, the Bible has a lot to say about man’s soul and that following a person’s death, the soul of the faithful will be with God in heaven. However, there are others who regard the idea of a soul as nothing more than a superstition.

Leading Evolutionist Becomes a Creationist!

1 Kings 18:21
“And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long shalt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow Him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”

In 1969 Dr. Dean Kenyon, then professor of biology at San Francisco State University, published a book that left him recognized as one of the leading evolutionary scientists. His book, Biological Predestination, tried to explain how simple living things could, over millions of years, become more complex, and finally evolve into human beings.

Science Tries to See

Psalm 139:14
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

Scientists have tried to tackle the job of creating a machine that is able to see as well as the human eye. In the process, they are gaining a new appreciation for the wonderful gift of sight.

Evolutionist Says: Darwinism is in Trouble!

Psalm 104:30-31
“Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created; and thou renewest the face of the earth. The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in His works.”

Several years ago, Dr. Francis Hitching gave us his book The Neck of the Giraffe and in this he writes that Darwinism is in a lot of trouble. He laments, and I’m using his own words, that evolution “has not, contrary to general belief, and despite very great efforts, been proven.”

Origins: Your Answer Matters!

Hebrews 12:1
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us…”

What makes something right or wrong? Are things that are sometimes wrong always wrong? Most writers and commentators, even most preachers today, have problems with the question of right and wrong. That seems amazing since only a generation or two ago few people had any problems at all with the issue of Illustration of the ventromedial prefrontal cortexright and wrong.

Nobel Prize Winner Says Man Is Divine Creation

Romans 1:20
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”

When he was 17, medical student John Eccles began asking questions about the nature of man, what is thought, and what is the meaning of life? Fifty years later, after he had become one of the world’s greatest experts on the human brain, had become Sir John Eccles and had received the Nobel Prize, he felt free enough to speak out about his studies.

A Solid Foundation in Creation

John 1:3
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

What does the Bible’s teaching on creation have to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ? Well, let’s see what happens to Christ’s work of salvation if creation is untrue and God actually used evolution. Death in the animal kingdom must have come into the world long before the first man and before sin.

Has the Big Bang Gone Bust?

Psalm 136:4-5
“To him who alone doeth great wonders: for His mercy endureth forever. To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth forever.”

Most of us are familiar with the Big Bang theory. It says the entire universe is the result of a gigantic explosion that took place about 16 billion years ago. This explosion eventually resulted in stars, galaxies, our Earth and even our genetic codes.

Male and Female: More than Genetics

Genesis 1:27
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

There is a popular idea that the biological differences between men and women are merely a “biological experiment” – and some say it is not a very good one! You may have even heard that all it takes is two sets of human genes to make a human being. This kind of thinking results from the evolutionary worldview. The Bible takes a very contrary view, extolling the unique virtues and abilities of both men and women.

Too Much Knowledge?

Job 37:16
“Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?”

Most of us are familiar with the fact that our Earth is being observed by dozens of satellites that keep track of weather systems, natural resources, ocean currents, sunlight, climate and animal migrations which makes every crop grown anywhere on Earth able to be identified.

God’s Joy of Creating

Romans 11:33
“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgements, and his ways past finding out!”

We all know that it takes time to plan even simple projects. But did you ever think about the planning that God had to do when He created all the different kinds of living things? How many plans did He make? A billion? A billion times a billion?

The Puzzle of Mathematics

Genesis 1:31a
“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, it was very good.”

When a clothing manufacturer selects a high quality fabric he is usually concerned enough to make sure that good workmanship goes into the final product. In a similar way, the fabric of the creation tells us a lot about its Creator. Mathematics more than anything else reflects the fabric of the creation.

Where Do Creation Moments Come From?

Hebrews 11:13
“These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”

One of the most frequent questions we receive at Creation Moments is: “Where do you get all that fascinating information?” Is there a book that contains all these interesting programs?
