We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Uphold the Foundations

If you destroy the foundations of anything, the structure will collapse.  If you want to destroy any building, you are guaranteed early success if you destroy the foundations.  Likewise, if one wants to destroy Christianity, then destroy the foundations established in the book of Genesis.  Is it any wonder that Satan is attacking Genesis more than any other book?

The Biblical doctrine of origins, as contained in the book of Genesis, is foundational to all other doctrines of Scripture.  Refute or undermine in any way the Biblical doctrine of origins, and the rest of the Bible is compromised.  Every single Biblical doctrine of theology, directly or indirectly, ultimately has its basis in the book of Genesis.

Just exactly true, Glenn. Wonderful reminder.

I just read this webpage:


What should a Christian taxpayer make of this NASA facility in Houston? They bandy about ages like "4.56 billion years" for a tiny specimen cast off from a comet, as one example. They believe a meteorite found in Antarctic ice originated on the planet Mars. Are we getting value for our tax dollars? Should the Creation Museum in Kentucky be given some of the samples to display and evaluate?

Whether Christian or not, I think all taxpayers should be against this huge waste of money. The creation museum does have meteorites, if I remember correctly. While there have been some great technological advances due to the space program, most of that is over and the predominant research is to prove/support evolutionism. No benefit to society for the money spent.

Thank you, sir. I have not been to the Creation Museum, but I hope to get there someday.

Secularists claim to see evidence for billions of years of Solar System age even in the trajectories of the bodies in our System.


Could/should we pray that as more evidence is collected by astronomers, it will point toward a Solar System age of about 10,000 years?

Glenn E. Chatfield said...


Well, the evidence HAS BEEN collected by astronomers which do indeed point towards a young age for the universe. Answers in Genesis and the Institute for Creation Research both have articles on their sites, as well as publication available about the subject.
You might look over their sites -- lots of good stuff.
