The Latest Newsletter
Dear Friend of Creation,
Tears came to my eyes as I embraced my daughter during the Father/Daughter dance at her recent wedding reception – no matter that so many other eyes were watching us. The words of Amy Grant’s song “Doubly Good to You” were sounding in the background …
You can thank the Father for the things that He has done,
Thank Him for the things He’s yet to do.
And if you find a love that’s tender, if you find someone that’s true,
Thank the Lord, He’s been doubly good to you.
If you’ve been a parent, you will know the feeling of love and wonder and joy that descends at such moments with our children!
I think back to how I cried at her birth. I cried even more unabashedly at the birth of our first child! Come to think of it, I cried at the birth of all six of our children! I was awestruck by the wonder of a newborn baby, and I felt the love and the magnitude of being entrusted with such a precious, beautiful and dependent life.
The birth of a baby is indeed a marvelous event of creation! And the birth of the baby Jesus, God the Son, in especially humble circumstances is a stroke of communication genius by our great Creator. It breaks through the rebellious pride and the sinful estrangement human beings feel toward their Maker.
The awesome Creator came as one of the most humble and helpless among us, a miracle of the very creation He established. What parent has not been touched at the birth of their children, peering in awe at the perfect little fingers and toes and other features of our newborns?
At Christmas time it is good to review the full meaning of the incarnation. You see, the baby in the manger is indeed much more. He’s the King of kings and Lord of lords! He’s the Alpha and the Omega! He’s the right conclusion of religion. And He’s the unifying principle of science!
We have written here recently, for example, about how the most elementary particles of materials are essentially pure energy, and how it remains a mystery how like-charged sub-atomic species hold together with so much power within the atom.
As the Bible says beginning in Hebrews 1:1, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power.” No wonder the glory of the Lord shone round about the shepherds on the hills outside Bethlehem at the birth of Jesus, and the multitude of angelic hosts praised God and proclaimed “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men”.
At Christmas it is a good time to bask in the wonder of creation and to marvel at the love, fellowship and beauty of spiritual goodness which is at the root of all things created – much as parents have opportunity to bask in the wonder of the children God gives us!
But we need to remember we are in a spiritual warfare – and one of the greatest weapons of the enemy is the theory of evolution. Evolution not only forms a basis for materialist worldviews, but for spiritist and pantheist worldviews which have been so common throughout history.
For example, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, philosopher and Jesuit priest who trained as a paleontologist, was one of the founders of Cosmic Humanism. This pantheistic worldview, often referred to as “New Age”, has become one of the dominant worldviews of our day. He said this in his book The Phenomenon of Man: “Evolution is a light illuminating all facts, a curve that all lines must follow.… Man discovers that he is nothing else than evolution become conscious of itself.”
Many people are held back by the lies of evolution, and as long as evolutionism is believed to be true, it will be free to work its ill effects. So we still have our work cut out for us at Creation Moments! And we thank you so much for your participation in this, your ministry. Your prayers and financial support are the lifeblood of this ministry.
From our family to yours, may God bless you and fill you with His peace and joy this Christmas season and on into the New Year!
Yours in Christ,
Mark Cadwallader, Board Chairman
P.S. This Christmas I am very pleased to offer you the seventh and final volume of Paul Bartz’s Letting God Create Your Day. Though Paul passed away in 2013, he left a lasting legacy in his Creation Moments scripts, which have blessed the hearts of millions worldwide. How fitting that his remaining unpublished Creation Moments scripts can now become Volume 7 of this remarkable series! A man whose mission was proclaiming the seven days of biblical creation has completed his seven-volume collection of biblical creation devotionals!
For a donation of just $15 or more, I will rush you a copy of this brand new collection of scripts. Even better – for a donation of $75 or more, I will send you the complete 7-volume set! You will have in your possession virtually every script Paul Bartz ever wrote for the Creation Moments broadcast. That’s over 1,600 inspiring scripts in all … for less than the price of the individual volumes!
For a donation of any amount, I will send you Dr. Don Batten’s What About the Arguments for Evolution? This illustrated booklet is packed with so many startling facts, I can only wonder how it would have impacted de Chardin if it had been available while he was alive! In fact, I wonder how anyone can read it and come away believing that evolution is true. It’s brief and fully footnoted, so you’ll want to share it with friends and loved ones who are caught in evolution’s snare!
And to thank you for supporting us as another year draws to a close, I will also send you our latest Creation Moments CD filled with 30 recently aired radio programs.
To receive these new items – or to make a donation of any amount – simply donate online or call us toll-free at 1-800-422-4253 during regular office hours.
