“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Could it be true that we have unwittingly been telling our young people that Christianity is irrelevant? As I present the evidences for creation and explain to young people the problems with evolution, a similar pattern emerges each time. While the material is new to them, it rings true. Soon, the questions start, and they begin to express anger as they realize they have been misled by those teaching evolution.
“And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
The electron microscope was developed over 80 years ago and enables us to probe the secrets of God’s creation. One of the most surprising discoveries shows an incredible similarity between those little whips called flagellum – which some microbes use for swimming – and the inside of your ear!
“And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.”
According to man’s history as presented in the Bible, farming and shepherding were among the first occupations. Genesis specifically tells us that in the second generation of human beings there was a shepherd, Abel, and a farmer, Cain. Evolutionists disagree and tell us the first men were hunters and gatherers.
“For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.”
An adult’s liver is about the size of a football and weighs about three pounds, making it the body’s largest internal organ. Tucked neatly beneath the ribs, your liver performs more than 500 different tasks. It is a vital link between your heart, lungs and digestive system.
“And the Lord said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua…”
Evolutionary scientists have been amazed by the discovery that the very oldest artifacts left by man indicate the presence of written language and mathematical ability. Creationists, on the other hand, are not surprised and predicted that evidence would be found to show that mankind has always had a language.
“And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding.”
Our bodies have many different rhythms. For example, your body temperature and your blood pressure cycle throughout the 24-hour day. Other body rhythms complete their cycle in 7 days or 28 days and so on.
“And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey....”
While many people recognize the virtues of feeding their infants human breast milk, science is still learning its amazing secrets. Although cow’s milk contains many substances found in human milk, it does not contain certain very specific substances necessary to protect the infant.
“For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither is any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.”
Airport security is a major concern these days. There are many ways for those who don’t have good intentions to hide things beneath their clothes. Now, thanks to a design they borrowed from our Creator God, scientists have come up with a way to make that virtually impossible,
“Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
Let’s take a moment today to look at your body’s incredible system for repairing itself. Suppose you accidentally cut your finger. Almost instantly, a series of precisely ordered steps begins to repair your finger.
“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.”
Many people still believe that as we developed from the fertilized egg in our mother’s womb, we went through all the earlier evolutionary stages. That is, we had gills like a fish, then our heart developed from two-stage to four-stage, and at one point we even had a tail like a monkey. Unfortunately this myth, based upon fraudulent work done in 1866, can still be found as evidence for evolution in some school textbooks.
“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.”
Blood is one of the most miraculous of all creations. It carries oxygen and energy to our cells, and carries off wastes. It is also a communications pipeline, using powerful hormones to provide communication between various parts of the body.
"Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints..."
Several years ago, the Southern Medical Journal reported that prayers can help sick hospital patients, even if they don't know they are being prayed for. However, some of the scientists involved said they would not accept the findings unless there was a certifiable miracle.
"And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias."
Two thousand years ago parchment or papyrus pages of written works were all stitched together end to end into a long roll wound around a wooden or metal bar. It was called a scroll. The problem in reading it was that you had to spin through the entire roll if you wanted to read, say, a passage on the last page. Just like the old video or audiotapes.
"But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee... But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you … or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, and the fish of the sea will explain to you. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?"
One of the areas in which modern technology is advancing most rapidly is fiber optics. Crystal clear telephone messages are carried on cables of special fibers that conduct messages in digital form, using laser light. Offices and industries now use computer systems in which processors are linked with fiber optic cables in order to increase speed.
God watches when the doe gives birth to her fawn. He makes
the leopard swift to hunt its prey. From the exotic ibex to the more
commonly-known tortoise, these and the other wonderful creatures of this
